Where exactly do you start off? The nearest bus station around your hotel is Jinghua Jiariwan and Ziyuan Luzhong, so you can take bus 812/k30/z142 to it.

It is impossible to go direct to your hotel from HKIA by bus. It is suggested to stay one night around the airport and take ferry from there to Jiuzhou port in next morning. After your arrival, you can take bus 99 to Gongbei station, and walk west of 500m to your hotel. It takes around 40 minutes with CNY1.
