After a long flight from london, we put the do not disturb sign on our Hotel room, what a waste of time that was, it was like showing a red towel to a bull, the staff were unpleasant and rude, there was a meagre breakfast room, the road the hotel was in was dirty and full of chicken girls and bars (prostitutes), we decided to cut short our stay at this Hotel, when we checked out The Hotel tried to charge us for facilities we had not used.
If you are going to stay in Shekou, please stay at The Honlux Hotel Appartments, very friendly staff, clean enviroment and a better location.
We never stayed long enough to find out if there was any good qualities.
The Tai Zi is as convenient as it gets, situated opposite the main plaza in central Shekou, just a few hundred metres from the harbour.
The hotel is spotlessly clean, with friendly staff and you can park outside overnight.
Rooms are available for RMB280 per night.
Unusually for China, the hotel is a low-rise structure, painted bright yellow and is a little different from the high-rise blue-glass towers that most hotel architects throw up these days here.
Don't let the address put you off, this is NOT an industrial zone anymore!
The rooms are clean and fresh, but the beds are very hard (fine for me, but not to everyone's taste!). The bathroom was fine, and al the plumbing worked and not a single chipped tile and even the bathroom lighting was sufficient ( a rarity in 2 star hotels!).
Breakfast (included in the rate) was a real disappointment though: the coffee was simply dreadful, and was served with condensed milk - not really acceptable anywhere these days! The orange juice was diluted orange squash, not fresh.....hmmmm.
Ask for a room at the back, because the rooms at the front face a very busy street!
