Situated in the heart of Nanshan, Southern Inn is hardly a 10 minute drive from Shenzhen Bay Sports Center and 30 minutes from Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport. Useful sightseeing advice is offered by the hotels 24 hour front desk. A rejuvenating sauna session is an ideal way to unwind after a hectic day of business or sightseeing.

Facilities like laundry service, luggage storage and free WiFi access make for a hassle free stay.
Designed with a minimalistic approach, all rooms of the hotel are equipped with satellite television, desk, mini bar and free WiFi access. Essential toiletries are provided in en suite bathrooms.
A rich breakfast, comprising typical Chinese items, is served by the hotel each morning. A scrumptious local meal can be enjoyed in lunch and dinner at the in house restaurant. Those missing out on spicy Indian food can head to Bombay Indian Cuisine Restaurant, reachable in a 10 minute drive from the property.
Plan a visit to the Xin an Nantou Ancient City, only 10 minutes drive from the hotel.
Even though I travelled with a native Chinese speaker, the hotel was difficult to find as taxi drivers did not seem aware of it, check in was slow and check out even slower. None of the staff spoke English (which wasn't a particular problem for us) and there was no western cuisine - not even coffee in the rooms. The signposted Lobby Bar was not a bar, simply a lobby! Breakfast on the first morning was cancelled so we had to go out of the hotel to find something to start the day (absolutely criminal in my book!) yet no refund was offered. We ate in the restaurant in the evening which provided excellent value - even though we had to avoid the vomit of one of our fellow diners who remained slumped across his table, victim, perhaps, of the generous three-for-the-price-of-two bottles of TsingTao beer. Rooms were fine with all expected amenities and free internet. Good value but don't expect too much quality.
