Swissotel Foshan5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We went to Cielo 51 again and enjoyed the same superb food and service as last year. Situated in the 51st floor, one changes to an adjacent lift on the 36th floor. We always book in advance but noticed that 'walk-ins' were accommodated. The menu is electronic (alternate pages English and Chinese). My starter choice of crab salad on mango salsa with avocado mousse was Devine. Main course prawns were excellent as well. The family mixed and matched starters!!! The final 'great' thing about this place is the 'private room' they gave us ... it protrudes from the side of the building such that you feel you are suspended in mid-air ... 51 floors up!!!
Friendly staff, good rooms and a nice high level bar (where you should try the Universe cocktail). A bit weird/inconvenient is the elevator changing at mid level to get to/from the rooms. A walk to downtown takes just about 5 minutes.
This hotel is quite nice with very clean amenities. The only drawback is the parking area however the service is top notch and the attention is quite outstanding. I can't rave enough about the great experience we had here. I used to stay at the Crown Plaza which is across the street but the hotel rooms are a bit run down and the restroom area needs some update. I will definitely continue staying at this hotel next time I come back to Foshan.
I usually spend about 20-25 days per year in China, and I always stay at the Swissotel when I am in Foshan. I stay here because it is the BEST hotel in China, and it keeps getting better! The staff are so attentive, the check in takes on a couple of minutes as all the paperwork seems to be ready, The staff also speak great English, which is such a bonus! The rooms are very large, well appointed with everything you need and true 5 star!!! The breakfast is excellent and I always enjoy spending time in the executive lounge after a tough day visiting factories!! Finally, the staff I cannot commend enough, Yolanda, Ben Ma and Jack are the nicest and diligent staff I have ever met!! Every time I visit, it's like visiting old friends!!!
Great and convenient location Very nice and helpful staff Nice variety menu for breakfast with nice bakery selection Great view from guest room as well as the breakfast area Lobby can be improved to become more lavish TV channels are mostly Chinese. Can improve by adding more movie stations
I visited this hotel due to many good reviews in Tripadvisor . First impression in lobby was good . Check in was fast and i get executive non-smoking room . First when i enter room there was a bad odor in room - after cigarets . The room was different as on pictures on hotel web site . Size of room is more on small size and im doubting if the size is same as shown on web site !? Bed was very hard and sleep was not so good . Breakfast was just ok - nothing very impressive . Happy hours in executive club was good and selection of drinks was good also . The executive lounge was good experience - mr Jack make really good impression and was willing to provide help . The concierge wasn't able in 3 days to book me train or bus ticket to Hong Kong !? Answer was always - tickets are sold out !? I was in hotel during Canton Fair and they provide shuttle bus from hotel to exhibition and back . But return was very late so i always took Metro - price was 7RMB and it takes around 1 hour . I will think if i will be ever back to this hotel since service and rooms are not spotless .
Our first trip to China was a total surprise - from start to finish. With different expectations coming here, we were thoroughly impressed with the City of Foshan (which we were told was industrial and hence maybe dirty?) This could not be further from the truth. A bustling metropolitan area that beats any City in the U.S. hands down in nearly every category. We stayed at the Swissotel which is VERY conveniently located near the heart of the city and in waking distance to downtown life and transportation. The hotel has everything you need and more and the service is impeccable.
I have to say I had many requests for the Swissotel Foshan staff to manage, because it was a special occasion I was going to celebrate. ALL the Staff, from Duty Manager Ben, Lounge staff, specially their trainee and Jack, the 51Cielo staff, Spa and reception staff, all fantastic, great work!! They will all remember to call you by your name and anticipate your needs. Me and my dearest Mila will forever remember our good times spent in your hotel. Here are some pictures for the next travellers, to find out how good you treated us.
This hotel is not expansive but offers the best services in any price range. Every staff is polite and friendly. The rooms are clean and recently renovated, the breakfast is excellent in terms of quality and varieties. Everyone in our group says they will come back again.
