With multiple disparate downtowns, the conundrum in Shēnzhèn is choosing where to stay. High-rise Fútián district has most luxury hotels, while scruffier Luōhú district is stuffed with budget and midrange business hotels – the best orbit Lao Jie metro. Shékǒu, in the city's west, has decent midrange and upscale options, but is further from the sights. Consider anywhere in range of OCT-LOFT, one of the most pleasant areas and very central.
