As an alleged five-star hotel, The bed linens and ropes are OK for comfort. The size of the room is also decent. They have BBC, French channels. The breakfast is poor: small restaurant, lack of choices, too many people and the quality of food is far from anything five-star. I came back to my table with food only to find all other 3 chairs I wasn't using intact but the one I was sitting on just somehow vanished, gone. And the fork and knife and plates were still resting on the table. Haunting! I looked around and saw probably my chair being seated by a mid-age women in the alley, who was enjoying her food and chatting with her friends. The room was a smoking one. Hate smoky air. The View: window opens to the roofs of shabby building and the cramped city skyline in polluted smog. The design of the room is rather strange. The cleanliness could have been much improved on the carpet, the surface of the sofa, etc. to live up with the five star rating. The cheap pack of for-sale toiletries, bottled water of a new local brand, and box of Chinese tea should be removed to upgrade the taste. The TV is small, not high resolution, and cannot adjust in any direction, not to mention using your USB for your own movie. The tea bag and nestle instant coffee reminds me of a basic 3-star facility. Guests had better go through the full price list of every single item in the room, from bed head board to tea spoon. The completeness of the items you can or cannot see really frightens you to death of damaging the cheap setting. The location: the hotel hides itself in a crowded and dirty residential complex. Reaching there at night is a challenge of GPS. The check-in staff was a cold poker face. He set me aside waiting and dealt with some other guest behind me while being unclear of my booking, no explanation nor guilty feeling. Actually, on the twentieth something Floor, it shows it belongs to some service apartment company. Where am I? A real five star hotel or an average service apartment I find easily find at half the price on the Internet?
It is near the East Railway Station and Metro Subway. Also near to PO Park Plaza which have several good restaurant to choose. Price was high during the Canton Fair.
Just the stay They charged us more than what we booked from booking.com. The staff was rude and we argued for 1 hour at cherckin. They blamed the rate change for 40USD increase which is impossible. Next morning we had to rediscuss with the manager and finally they agrees to lower it a little. But at checkout agin they made the same mistake.
Good value for business The al a carte food in the restaurant was not good. Ordered snails and delivered shrimps on fruit. Ordered seafood fried rice and received fried rice with a little seafood withe a chicken joint thrown in!
Convenient, friendly and efficient, Breakfast. Not really the western type as advertised. Breakfast restaurant could be cleaner too.
everything my ipod and sound device was stolen by room service, construction behind the hotel start from 6 am
This was one of the most pleasant experiences staying on a business trip in China. The staff was incredible. I stayed on the executive floor. The service and amenities were amazing. I will definitely stay there again.
Very nice room . Good breakfast . A little too expensive for what it is offering . I stayed during Canton fair ,maybe this is the reason why I thought a little expensive but I would recommend this hotel Location ! . It is central and nice , but in the area are a lot of office buldings . you just cannot go from the hotel and drink a beer or go to a restaurant within walking distance . You have to take taxi .
When we were away from the hotel. We did not like anything the staff were rude and kept trying to add additional fees. We had a 40 minute delay at check in trying to sort out the breakfasts which it clearly indicated on the booking were included but the staff kept insisting they weren't. I will not recommend this hotel to any of my colleagues or friends in fact I will be making it clear to our HR department that handles hotel bookings to avoid this one.
Staff is helpful and polite. The room is spacious, clean and comfort.
Stayed in the executive room. The room was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The executive lounge was disappointing. Could have a wider variety of food and some light meals. Did not justify to pay for executive floor price. Beverages (other than Coffee/Tea) was overcharged.
The facilities were excellent and so was the staff. I would recommend this hotel for the fantastic value. The boring coffee shop menu. Close, but not walking distance from the Metro/ Guangzhou East Rly Stn.
it was a luxury hotel with great spa facilities.good for business people breakfast for halaal sholud be looked into,as u have many moslem clients.
Foot Care Centre, Desingn Poor breakfast, Rigid mattress,Towels look as dirty
Very kind and helpful staff, good offer of restaurants This hotel might need more lifts
Close to the Canton Fair. Reasobable prices for a good hotel during a business trip.
That i wait 2 hours for check in Lie with price. I booked for 189 usd but pay 1480 CNY - 222 USD
Very clean rooms Bad location it not on a main road its located is hard to find
Staff profesionalism. Food was quite good. Very nice rooms. It is an international business hotel.
It was a good location , the room was good and clean... The main problem is with the stuff there, they don't know english at all and they make a lot of mess up coz of this.They don't even know their own menu for room service and is very hard to comunicate with them.
Internet was not working properly, they refused to fix it, refused to compensate, and few of the servants speak proper english.
my accommodation was comfortable and full of successful the hotel was clean and the employ was cooperative just the location
The hotel is just o.k. I would not give it more than 3 Stars. It is clean but you can easily see wear and tear in every details of the hotel's room. Looking outside the window seeing a nice size outdoor pool with next door yard filled with construction debris.
Staff may not always have a good command of english but they would do their best to try to help me with my needs ; Overwhelming choice of excellent Dim Sum for breakfast (did not even try their continental buffet) ; Free wired internet ; pool ; great value for money Looks like it's just accross the East Train Station on the map.. It actually is but you have to cross a 6 lines freeway to reach the hotel (people do it, it's probably not a good idea to try if you are not used to the chinese way of crossing roads). No overpass nor underpass near the hotel. The taxis drive to/from the station takes 10 minutes ; Their travel agency cannot make reservation for train tickets (but ok for air tickets)
Good hotel, great value, near the station but main disadvantage is there is virtually nothing of interest near the hotel, its a long walk to shops, restaurants etc.
The hotel is very clean and confortable. Great breakfast.
Free Breakfast, Free Internet, Free Minibar It was far from city centre and I had to spend time & money commuting
The location was fantastic. The room had a stale smoke smell.
Price, Comfort, Secure location Lack of other languages
The breakfast was nice and they had an outdoor swimming pool but there was a big dual carraigeway and motorway flyover next to the hotel so it was a bit dusty!There was free buses to/from the Canton Fair.The metro station was at least 20 mins walk away.Internet access was free. There was only 1 access to the hotel because of a very complex dual carraigeway and flyover. You had to double back in a taxi.It was out of town and not near any shops.
clean room is excellent there are no shopping
The front desk staff are excellent . Feel cheated as we used the foot massage service. When asked we was informed there is 20% discount for hotel guest , after completed the service, we are not allowed to have the discount . big mess and after some hotel negotiation which totally spoilt our mood, we are given the discount. This is consider cheating !!!!!
They must have more people speeking english
The room. The hotel staff had poor knowledge of english language.
To be honest with the money I have paid nothing worth there I could get better hotel The location near to nothing , if you want to save your time and money don't go for it , breakfast is really bad quality means better to have room with out breakfast and enjoy your coffee at your room . The people there cold learn more English but any way in china all hotels worker hard to cominacate with .
Its only 10 minutes drive by shuttle bus to the fair. Buffet breakfast good compared to same priced hotel in the same district.
The breakfast buffet was excellent. The room was very clean and luxurious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you are here for the Canton Fair, which we were, there is a free shuttle bus which was very convenient and is wasn't too far away. As mentioned in some of the other reviews, the beds were hard as a rock. They certainly need some improvement there. The hallway had an unpleasant, sour odor to it the entire time we were there. You could only smell it when you walked to your room. I'm not sure if it was just our hallway or all of them. The dinner buffet was seafood every night and in my opinion, was not very good at all. We only tried it once and did not go back. However, I am from the Florida gulf coast and accustomed to fresh, Florida seafood.
Great room, very slow restaurant service The view of hotel was very great but the hotel Hotel far away from shopping and night life areas
nice new and clean hotel cold water in the pool and very long wait for the elavetors
frendly stuff, clean room, good hotel service, additional services during the Canton Fair (Shuttle bus and a bottle of water at the bus parking at bus time in the evening :) The personal generally doesn't speak English
Good location near subway. Easy access to train station and airport. Security procedure few days before Asian games is not well organized and bad.
It was nice to be able to use the bus during the Canton fair
the hotel was perfect-value for price- a bit quiet area not really in center of restaurants and shopping
Absolutely new hotel. Was opened in july 2009. Fresh room design. Absolutely cleanliness. Friendly stuff. Good breakfast. Good located, right in the city center, closed from metro, 15 min by metro to Pazhou complex. Good city view. Two restaurants, swimming pool, fitness, footmassage. Nothing for these money.
this is the second time i am staying at this hotel. the first time was a couple of months after its opening... they didn't have any staff that could speak english well... and still dont. So explaining yourself normally take a lot longer than it should. nevertheless, they are still very friendly people. it is located in the most quiet (and newer) areas of gz. there is simply no life there. i ended up having to spend a lot on taxis to get to and from the heart of the city/civilization almost every night. obviously this isn't the hotels fault, considering i chose it as a place to stay second time around. but it would have been nice to have at least a coffee shop somewhere close by.
Location & room set-up
The hotel is conveniently situated near the MTR and have a quiet surrounding.
