    Fabulous

    The staff is absolutely brilliant - apart from the language barrea as most of the staff can't really communicate in English. The service was the best ever!

    Very good

    The hotel is located in the centre of town. Staff is friendly and speaks English. The room was spacious and well furnished. Curious things like Pre-ecological geyser water are for sale, as well as many varieties of tea.

    The hotel has a problem with it's airco, the room smelled of mould, and so did the corridors and lounge. This gave us a claustrophobic feeling, and we started falling sick after three nights. Chinese breakfast was good, the choice of Western food was rather limited.

    A good hotel with a very convenient location. This city district is safe and provides many opportunities for shopping.

    The rooms are cleaned up very early...

    Exceptional

    Location is very convenient. 5 min walking distance to Metro. Supermarket, shopping malls and decent dining places nearby too. Service was excellent. Staff tried their best to fulfill our requests, e.g. provided modem for multiple internet connection points, power extension cable, umbrellas when it was raining, helped us to warm up our food. Free shuttle bus service to convention centre, not just during Canton Fair, but whenever there are trade fairs there. When shuttle bus service became too popular, they took the initiative to arrange for additional bus trips. Provided free breakfast even though it was not listed as such when we booked. Had absolutely no problems checking in at 3 am. Awesome value for money choice.

    Room was a little dark at night, even when all the lights were on.

    The Room was clean

    Hotel Staff could speak poor English so that the conversation had to be done by my girlfriend.

    Good

    I got a good deal during the Canton fair. They also have free shuttle to and from the fair ground (so as the other hotels). English is limited but they try to be as helpful as they can.

    It is a little bit old. There is no English tv channel. There is free internet but it is not Wifi.

    Best part was location was perfect if you need to go to the Pazhou complex, only 10 min drive. The decor was nice in room 1107

    What I didn't like was the beds- they were rock hard. We were in room 1107 and they showed me room 1310 and both were extremely hard. ( I like a firm bed but the carpet floor was softer!!!!) I felt for a hotel that gets hundreds of international tourists through their doors during the Canton Fair, they only had 2 staff members that understood and spoke english well. Not good enough. I asked for a map and they only had chinese ones and the person in the business centre didnt speak english!

    Fabulous

    Near to Shipaiqaio Metro station. Only 3 min of walking. 15 min by metro to Guanzhou East Railway station. So, if you are interested of traveling to Shanzhen, then this location is good for you. A lot of shops around.

    Note about "no smoking" room before if you need it. Cause we have smoked without notice.

    Good

    Very clean and modern room (7th floor). The room of my friends on the 10th floor was old-fashioned, but very clean and practical. The hotel is in Tianhe district, which is realy dead in the evening.

    Staff was very helpfull, but very few spoke English.

    Superb

    Nearby area are fantistic as the hotel is easy accessed to food and public transportation. Furthermore, the hotel room is clean and breakfast is good eventhough there is not much of variety. Lastly, the Hotel staff are very pleasant,helpful and friendly.

    None, but i would like to suggest that the Hotel should plan for renovation of the hotel front desk counter so as to make it more staylish and upgraded look in order to attract more guests.

  • 6.2
    Good

    The new rooms are very basic, stark and cold..They don't have an armchair. Ask for the old style renovated rooms. They are much better.

    The hotel breakfast isn't satisfactory. It is extremely limited in comparison with other Chinese hotels. The price of the hotel was expensive during this period. Avoid going to Guang Zhou when there are any big events taking place in the city.
