Henry Business Hotel3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Stayed here for two nights, room was spacious and clean with a decent bathroom and an office area to work from. The bar is not bad for a quick drink but does not have much atmosphere. Real disappoint for me was the banging of doors in the early hours of the morning and the loud sound of the television from next door. Due to the location I will most probably stay here again and hope that the other guests are more considerate.
I am traveling on a business trip here for a one-night stay. The hotel is very nice and clean. The room has everything I need and I am quite happy. The food was not too exciting and I just dealt with it. However, the bar downstairs was pretty good and it had real good selection of beer and other liquor. The food was good and ambient was very wonderful.
Stayed at Henry's for 8 nights.I got very good service.the staff were very helpful with only a minor language understanding,which is quite normal.I dined out so cannot comment on the restaurant.The room was immaculately cleaned every morning And i will always return when next in GZ. It's a bit far from the city centre if you're inclined to look up the night life.Close to the Int.Airport.
Hotel is about 25 mins away from airport. Airport transfer was arranged, on time and polite. Have a bar that opens up to 12am and a thai restaurant within the hotel. Otherwise, my business partners and myself opted to walk down the road about 10mins to local chinese restaurants to eat. Clean rooms and air conditioning... Good enough.
Stayed two nights at this hotel. I was meant to stay 4 nights. The restaurant was bad I tried to order a chicken dish but there was no English spoken. The breakfast had no Western food and the area was dirty and old. I was the only Western face. The travel shop was great booking me a flight and only one lady on reception spoke English and she had to help the travel shop.
By searching for an AIRPORT HOTEL in GUANGZHO, CHINA, on the CTRIP (CHINA TRAVEL) Website, I came across the Henry Business Hotel rated as SUPERB and described as an Airport Hotel at a reasonable rate, offering a shuttle service to the International Airport. So I booked it, and asked to be picked up at my flight's arrival for an overnight stay. The pick-up never arrived...after phone calls from the enquiries office upon arrival, my English didn't work, I was pestered by taxi touts and after more that an hour a duty manager finally arrived with a driver and drove me more that 30 minutes to a tolerable hotel...but miles away...and they charged ~$50 for the shuttle, on top of the room rate. BEWARE OF MISLEADING ADVERTISING, AND VERY POOR ENGLISH. THE ONLY REALLY NEARBY AIRPORT HOTEL, right across the terminal exit, is the PULLMAN HOTEL.
On our way back to India from the USA Jan this year , , we broke journey for an over night stay in Guangzhou . We wanted to stay as close to the Air port as possible as our flight the next day was early morning. Secondly , the hotel claimed to have English speaking staff. This is very essential as language is a huge problem in China. On both counts , the claim was a bit exaggerated. It took us full 30 minutes to reach the Hotel & English was spoken by one or two only - that too very haltingly. We had to strain to understand & make them understand. Having said that , I must place on record their ever - helpful & cooperative attitude. Despite our landing in the Hotel at about 0800 hrs , they made us comfortable & managed to give the room with in 30 - 40 mins. As we were to leave early morning next day , they readily accepted to give us breakfast in lieu of next day's entitled breakfast which we could'nt have taken. Very positive & helpful , indeed. The staff at the reception was very polite & despite language difficulty , our check in & out as also guidance & getting taxis etc , was faultless. The Hotel should , how ever , have some currency exchange facility , which is , otherwise , extremely bothersome & time -consuming in the banks. It is located in Huadu Distt of Guangzhou . At a limb , the city centre is nearly 40 m-50 mins away. Hence , if you are planning a sight - seeing or business trip to the city centre , it is not the right location. The Hotel itself is fairly new , distinct looking in good neighborhood. Eating places & shopping areas are not far . It has nice , restaurant & bar . The room is appointed with taste & caters for most needs- making the stay comfortable. Tariff is very reasonable. Yes , breakfast spread was adequate & preparation was good. Over all , its a neat & elegant hotel where we had a very comfortable over night stay. A warning about taxis at the Airport . Pre-book or better know the language. Have names & direction written in Chinese. Keep helpful tele Nos handy. Police does not help . Taxi drivers form a union & are out to extort ! Handle them firmly , authoritatively & insist on going by the meter. Be warned !!
The short answer is "No". I have stayed here before. I booked and prepaid for my room, which is fine. However, it then means that I was not allowed to bill meals to my room unless I had paid a big deposit up front, which is not required when you have prepaid. Do they really want business travellers who want to be able to charge meals to their rooms when they can? And then there is the wifi. To be blunt, it was pathetic, probably the worst I have experienced in China, and I have lived and worked and travelled in China for almost 4 years now. It was often slow and frequently unstable. And when I call them to have them reset their connection, they show up at my room to 'fix' my computer. It's not my computer! It's your connection! I can connect to their router, but beyond that is often no internet connection. My diagnostics tell me that their system has to be reset and restarted. This happened twice in one day. The location is OK, and is an easy stop along the airport shuttle route to Huadu. The room was clean, and regularly cleaned. The breakfast was better than average. But all in all, I don't think I will stay here again.
We stayed at this hotel one night in November 2014 as we were transferring to Lhasa first thing in the morning and needed a place to stay. We chose this place for its proximity to the airport and based off of the hotel photos. Pros - The hotel Thai/Chinese restaurant was delicious! - The hotel is clean and new - The rooms are spacious - The hotel staff speaks English and friendly - There is a shuttle bus direct to the airport that is very affordable - The price is superb for the size of the room Cons - The room smells like smoke. Even in the non smoking rooms as its seems the majority of people in China smoke. We suspected the smell was coming through the vents but be warned you will stink like smoke even in the non smoking rooms. - The hotel is actually quite far from the airport about 25mins by shuttle bus so please plan for it if you have earlier departure times -The surrounding area does not other much in terms of entertainment or food choices Conclusions All in all a very good hotel to stay at for a few days if you want a relatively close hotel to the airport for a very good cost.
We arrived in Guangzhou baiyun airport at night and the hotel is close to the airport, by taxi or arranged a pickup. The room is clean, the check in process also very fast. They also have bus goes to airport so it is very convinient. The area is far from guangzhou city center though. It need around 200 rmb for taxi to get to city center.
