Like other tourists, Muslim travelers coming from Islamic countries have particular requirements when they choose the destination for their vacation. Among these requirements, Muslims are concerned about the availability of halal compliant foods (no pork or alcohol in food) and a clean place to pray.
Many international hotels in Shenzhen do serve halal food that is slaughtered in accordance with the teachings of Islamic Sharia and is free of any substances forbidden by Islam such as pork and alcohol.
Other Islamic countries such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Oman and Brunei continue to be popular with Muslim tourists. Among non-OIC countries, Singapore, Thailand, the UK, Japan and Taiwan remain the top five respectively, but show improved scores on the index.

The exterior, furnitures and fittings are a little dated, but everything is in working condition. TV channels are quite limited but you should not be expected to spend too much time in the room considering the entertainment options the city has to offer.
Front desk staff are professional and efficient. From personal experiences, the entire process of checking in and out was a breeze. Knowing abit of Mandarin is especially helpful considering the limited English proficiency among most staff.

The Star Cafe offers a good mix of Western and Chinese choices for breakfast, and they start service as early as 6.30am. The favorite has to be the fresh dumplings soup, made on the spot on ordering. The main let down is that they do not vary the food choices a lot and after a couple of days, you could have sampled all the different dishes.

Just behind it is a large interconnecting mall, where you literally shop till you drop as there is a whole lot of shops offering both international and local brands of fashion.

One of the better Halal Restaurants in Shenzen. Visited the restaurant on Level 2. It is a big and nice restaurant. English Menu is available and serve a huge variety of food items. Place an order for us, 2 adult and 1 child.
So very surprised when the food servings were soooo huge. The fried chicken, was a Whole chicken. The fried rice and noodle was a big platter each, on top of the other items we ordered. Price is reasonable for the portion. Good food quality.
I have always chosen this hotel whenever I am here as it has good muslim facilities around the area such as eateries, mini mart, prayer room etc.
The Hotel is in a very nice location, 5 minutes away from the metro station. when you go out the Hotel, just right next to are 2 Halal food restaurants.
On the 8th floor there is a Masjid where muslims can attend to pray all 5 times prayer in Jamaah. I would definitely recommend this Hotel. Even the staff speaks a bit English.
We choose to stay here as we are Muslims & here they have halal food that we much needed during our stay.
The distance between Huang Bei Ling station and the hotel can be quite long if you carry your huge bag like we do. So, we choose to take bus to go around Shenzhen as the bus stop just near the hotel and you can conveniently go anywhere in Shenzhen by bus.
Do get the Shenzhen Tong (a prepaid transport card) at the train station for convenient smooth journey so you don’t need to search for coins for the bus ride.
The room is quite spacious to us as we previously stay in a tiny hostel in Hong Kong, and the price quite cheap too even for 2 nights.
For Muslim traveler, do stay here as you can try their halal local Chinese food. The food they serve we’re quite good and we even packed the food to Macau!

One of the things that I weigh more important than most other aspects during a hotel stay is the view. And this hotel serves just that! The hotel floors starts from 75th and goes all the way to the top at 90th, being the second tallest structure in Shenzhen, you probably won’t be able to get a bad view from any angle!
I stayed in a room on 88th floor, facing east directly looking at Shun Hing Square, which was once the tallest building in Shenzhen. The soaker tub in the bathroom has floor to ceiling curtain windows, just perfect for a bubble bath at night looking down to cityscape. The room is quite spacious with floor to ceiling curtain windows, serves unobstructed views to all around Shenzhen on different angles.
One of the wonderful services from st Regis is their butler service. You really don’t need to distinguish whether it’s a room service or house keeping request, one button serves you all, and their butlers are quite knowledgeable with most concierge requests and restaurant bookings.
During my stay, my friend and I had the pleasure to dine at their Italian restaurant Elba, I have to say that while it is quite pricey in comparison to the normal restaurants in China, you can just close your eyes and you won’t make a mistake and get something you don’t like! We tried out a couple of different dishes and appetizers and they are all cooked to perfection!
This hotel is a wonderful choice and once you have stayed here, it will set the bar so high that few hotels in Shenzhen can match up to this experience!
