About Meritus Hotel


Spacious and modern rooms with walk-in showers, lots of comfortable bedding, great views and wonderful service make this a good idea in Shantou. For getting around the area, be sure and book an excursion with the hotel reception, all excursions are easily booked through their friendly, English-speaking staff. Hop on a rig-shaw and take a city tour through the tree-lined streets. The restaurant is traditionally Chinese with a bit of a Western flare, enjoy it on a honeymoon or on a leisurely or business stay in the city. Take a dive in the swimming pool and unwind after a fine breakfast. There's nothing like Shantou shopping, so be sure and trip around town and take advantage of some of those great, bustling and vibrant little markets.

Pleasant hotel with room for improvement
Good location
Inadequate amenities in the room - eg teaspoons, bathrobes
Staff were pleasant and polite. Connecting room was smaller than expected, so much so that when the connecting doors were opened, there was no space to luggage stand, resulting in it jutting out at the passage. Basic items, eg teaspoons and bathrobes were not found in the room, so you will need to request from Housekeeping. Location of the hotel was good and within walking distance to many areas, such as shopping malls and eating places. Selection of food at the coffee house was excellent. One-for-one during Happy Hours does not include beer, which I wondered why.

Overpriced, Underserve
Good facility, clean and well-located
Practically no service, does not provide daily newspapers
Compared with my previous stay in the hotel, my current experience was a great letdown. Other 5 star hotels in China would provide breakfasts and daily newspapers in the language of your choice for the same price, but not in Meritus.

Qualité Moyenne
La propreté des chambres, des toilettes, la luminosité, pas de wifi dans les chambres
Hôtel bien situé dans le centre de Shantou , mais la proprété des chambres, de la salle de bain, des toilettes et de la salle de Gym n'est pas conforme au prix qui quand même assez élévé de l'ordre la nuit. La qualité du restaurant chinois est également médiocre.

good place to stayt
Clean and beautiful
No walking distance grocery store
I stayed there three night with my two years old baby. The room is clean and and still beautiful, although it has been decorated for 9 years. No smoking smell in non-smoking room which is good for my baby. There is a supermarket(walmart), but it quite far if you have to walk. I did not try the hotel food but they look good.

pleasant stay at meritus hotel, shantou
Hospitable staff all round. Very clean hotel premises and room. Room cleaned well daily. Near to Wal Mart. Travel by taxi to airport takes only 1/2 hour.
Having stayed in Meritus Hotel for 4 nights, I must say I enjoyed the warm, friendly atmosphere of the place. Compared to most hotels in the area, the room charges were reasonable. There was always someone who greeted me at the hotel - and that made my day! Thank you. I'd go back again to the same hotel at the next opportunity.

International Standard Living in town
the hotel give international standard living for unknown city.
Room need some improvement and carpet change.
It is the Meritus standard, but do not expect to be 5 stars hotel. The staff whom speak English was limited and not able to provide us with all the help we need. The hotel located in the heart of the city and we were able to walk around town by ourselves. The hotel provide non-smoking room, but the smell still strong, like it's smoking room. They should change carpet and curtain to improve the expectation.
