Recent guest reviews
Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It is a regular hotel.. Rooms are decent - nothing great. Would have liked to have some more lighting - thought the lighting was fairly dim.. The restaurants and breakfast were decent though.. I especially liked the Four seasons Chinese restaurant. Loved the baked pork buns.. The staff was helpful..
I had the privilege of staying in several Marriott hotels and even the other Guangzhou one at Guangzhou Marriott Hotel Tianhe which was newer and had better facilities. Since China Hotel was an older building, it looks like it is trying hard to match up to the standards of the newer ones but sometimes the issues can be structural. Take the Executive Lounge for example which has low ceilings that made the whole place claustrophobic combined with the partitions into several sections as compared to the higher ceilings and more open concept of Tianhe. One of the lift too was supposed to go to the 15th floor where I roomed but stopped at the 14th floor, had 2 experience of this lift, the first I tried to dismiss as human error thinking I pressed the wrong button but was verified in my next experience. And some of the amenities holders look worn out even though it exudes the traditional oriental feel the hotel may be trying to project. Other than this the location is wonderful in that it is just opposite the Yuexiu Park and other famous attractions and 20 minutes by cab to the Baiyun Mountain Scenic Area.
It is a good 4 star hotel near to the Guangzhou railway station. The hotel is located next to the Yuexiu Park, and the metro station is front of the hotel. The city center (Beijing Road) is near too. The breakfast is very rich. You can select from traditional chineese and asian food to european food. Connection to the wifi was excellent. Next to the hotel is McDonald’s or some local chineese restaurants 5 min by walk.
Staffs are friendly especially the Housekeeping dept that are very diligent. Lobby staffs are able to communicate in English and polite. Location is very accessible to metro to travel around Guangzhou. Very beautiful tourist attraction nearby named Yuexiu garden where Sun Yat Sen memorial and the famous 5 rams statues situated.
Visit number six to this old Marriott. The same problems as always persist. Mgt please listen up. Your checkin is one of the worst I've seen in a Marriott. You need to focus on friendly welcoming customer service at the front desk. This is a persistent problem at the China Hotel. The building is old and it's no longer all that clean. But there's one good thing. It's cheap. And reasonable value for money. So as long as you go not really expecting a true Marriott, but something else that represents the low price you pay which could be as low as 700 per night, then you could be happy enough. That's how I approach staying there now. I expect little. Pay little and leave OK ish. Has a reasonable pool and gym which is a bonus. Do visit the Nan Yue museum next door. Better artifacts inside than terra-cotta warrior museum in my view. And 12 rmb entry! Great spot. Allow about 45 mins to visit right beside the hotel
I have stayed here twice, for a total of two weeks. It is much worse in the rain season. The smell of mildew lingers in the air. Its like you can not get rid of it. The first time I stayed I had to change rooms 7 times because of problems. This time I only changed room once. I called when I got to my room and asked for a different room. They said what kind of a up grade do you want and the upgrade where the room is clean and nice and everything works. I would never stay if it was not part of the package. The people are nice enough, but it is not that nice in the rooms. The courtyard is a joke. It is just to bad because if someone put some money into hotel it could be nice. It needs an overhaul. Some rooms are way worse then others.
This is my first visit to Guangzhou, and already impressed by this Marriott! The room has everything you could ask for, even a scale! (Sign from above to keep on my current weight loss plan?! :-) Very convenient location next to the metro to move around this city. The first stop of the airport express bus service route 4, a very convenient way to get to the city (twenty times cheaper than a taxi, literally!). Five restaurants in the building, and even a Starbuck, should you miss home... And it's open until very late... Super friendly staff, as everybody in China!
I stayed for several days at this hotel and it was convenient, the hotel location is good (just at the exit D of Yuexiu Park metro station) with easy access to everywhere using Guangzhou Subway. Yuexiu Park is just across the road and the famous Beijing street is 2 stations away. “The Street Food Restaurant” at the ground floor is a very nice Chinese restaurant, can be very crowded but food is really good and prices are reasonable. I tried other nearby local restaurants that serve really cheap super delicious Dim Sum, Chinese and western infused food, all these restaurants are located almost at the same building near the exit of Ximencou station (3 stations away of Yuexiu Park station), just in front of Mc Cafe. If staying for the 1st time in Guangzhou here is something useful to keep; an English version of Guangzhou Subway Map.
This hotel is amazing for the value, with a cued in staff, good size rooms, and a great location. It is badly in need of a design update, however. It is one of the older hotels in Guangzhou, familiar to many who have been coming to the city for years, and surprising in its efficiency, cleanliness, and well appointed rooms. It is far from a luxe standard, however, and the decor is somewhat glaring and unpleasant to a western sensibility. But for a little over US$120, unbeatable.
I regret to write to you expressing my disappointment with the attitude of a wait staff of the grand ballroom on 2/F during our company dinner. I was sitting in table 18. We asked one of the waiters to serve us with some beer. He came with around 7 bottles of beer. He was standing right behind my seat. While serving the last bottle, he accidentally dropped the bottle and the liquid was poured right onto my back and my coat on the chair as well as my suede handbag. My hair, dress, coat and handbag got wet. This was an accident and I didn't want to blame him. However, after saying sorry, he disappeared from my sight and didn't even bother to bring me a towel to dry my dress under this cold weather. I couldn't recall which staff it was as they were all in uniform. I have chosen to write in here instead of complaining on the spot so not to spoil my mood for the dinner. I also stayed in your hotel that night after the dinner.
