There is Airport Express Shuttle Line#8, between CAN airport and this hotel. That is the reason I choose this hotel. Also, I like the Hunan Restaurant nearby. Hotel facility is ok, but quite far away to subway station.
The photo that is in booking.com is so different from reality. The lobby looks really bad. The rooms are not too bad, they are spacious and clean, but we could smell cigarettes. The breakfast has only a choice of Chinese meal which we did not enjoy at all. No one in the restaurant spoke English. The location is really far from anything.
Situated in a part of town where pretty much nothing happens, it seems to hold a lot of promise with an offering of korean, japanese & hunan restaurants in the same building. First thing driving up to the entrance is that you notice they don't have any bell-hops. When I approach the front desk, there's a huge sign that claim that the hotel is 4-star. Interesting that in China, 4-star hotels doesn't have bell-hops. We got upgraded and the rooms were huge - with a living area, a small kitchen, a ginormous bathroom & hold it there...no working wifi. At least not in the room that I was assigned to. And this after 3 hotel staff tried in turns to get the wifi to work, to no avail. The room that I was in also comes with a free mothball smell. I guess bugs might be issue somewhere around here. The shower stall's door also does a terrible job holding back the bathwater. There's a 3 inch gap at the bottom of the door and by the time you are done with your shower, you step out of the stall into a pond. Very smart design indeed. The breakfast area is a classic. There's no aircon in that stuffy breakfast room until 7:00am although breakfast starts serving at 6:30am. Good for those who likes to work out a sweat eating. There is a total of one serve staff at breakfast, and she didn't look like she enjoy being in that situation. You make your own noodles and serve yourself for everything else. There is no egg station or fruits. There's supposedly a bar on the ground floor but it's perpetually close, teasing you constantly with their showcase of beer advertisement. At check out, I was pushing a trolley full of bags and luggage. The staff at the front door didn't even bat an eyelid, they just helpfully ignore. Truly a classic Chinese hotel with distinctly Chinese characteristics.
Nice lobby. Good room. But if like to walk around, you have to go by taxi since the location is quite far for the nearest metro (subway). But of can read Chinese characters, there is bus station near the hotel. One thing that i like is the location is near with a park with great jogging track, clean and beautiful
Location : very far from anything & everything. Nothing nearby. Room : descent rooms. Good size. Good bathroom. Good aircon. Low preasure in the shower. Minibar had very very few options. Wifi : PATHETIC. NEVER SEEN SUCH A BAD WIFI. STAFF: average. Not very fluent in english. But can manage. Breakfast : lousy. Very limited variety for continental. 95% chinese items Will not come back again.
On first impression this hotel seemed fine. Received a warm welcome and check in process was smooth. Got allocated an apartment rather than a room which was very spacious and had a small kitchenette. Free wifi is also available for use which is a bonus. However, I just didn't feel like the hotel was clean enough or up to the standard of similar hotels I have stayed in. One morning at breakfast the air vent above our table started dripping water, this concerned me as I thought it may be water from the air conditioning unit. Breakfast does not cater for western tastes but to be fair this does not seem to be a hotel that is used by westerners. The hotel is far from any attractions. Overall would not choose to stay here again.
I stay in this hotel during Canton fair. Our previws hotel make overbook and 4 days before fair we had to find new hotel. Location: far away from city center, in a new district (science City). They have shutle bus for fair (30 min) 3 in the morning and 2 in evening. From airport with taxy around 50 min. Rooms: big, clean and with a nice bed. But no balcony, no open window and AC makes to much nois. Brakfast: under averige - poor sellection of food Services: in hotel you find 5 restaurants (goods) and one supermarket (open till late). In area: many green places, one park and on 20 walk distance you find one mall (GT mall) with 7 floors of almost only foodcurts and restaurants. On basement they have supermarket. On top floor 3D cinema and 2-3 karaoke bars. On ground floor 2-3 pubs with live music. Overall: the hotel is mainly for chineese people use (I notice only few European, mainly local people). During fair was realy expensive (100 eur / night) and due to this the value for money ratio is not good. Next time we shall make reservation much earlier and choose one hotell from downtown (the room rates are similar but better location.
Just got back from Guangzhou and stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. My opinions of this hotel: 1. Decent rooms. Clean and doesn't smell bad. 2. Run-of-the-mill hotel restaurants: Japanese, Korean, Chinese and a rather quiet bar. 3. Decent sized gym. 4. No pool.. too bad. 5. Breakfast was so-so. The only reason why I stayed here is the location. Nothing much around to do so you will probably go nuts after 3 nights :)
I am staying here for business. (Two nights in November). Score should be 3.5, but they don't have it in TripAdvisor. This hotel is close to the Crown Plaza which was fully booked. Locals told me this is the next best thing. About an hour drive from Guangzhou airport. (90 minutes if you take the 8A bus line. I didn't use it, but they have that information in the room). Pros: Good location if you need to be in Science City. Good English at reception. Good size modern room. Clean and everything functional. Good air-conditioning. Working all night long. Several restaurants in the hotel perimeter, accessible from inside the hotel and from the street. (I did not try any of them). So So: Hard bed. I like it, but I see many complaints about hard beds. So if this is an issue for you, don't say I didn't tell you. Internet available in the room both through WiFi and cable. But it is annoyingly slow. Breakfast is OK. Enough to get you outside the door for your day. Selection is more Chinese than western. Can get short on sitting during breakfast rush hour.(7:00-8:30) Bad: No English at all among staff outside reception. (The girl who takes your room number at breakfast, did not know numbers in English...) Hard to get a Taxi in this area. Safe in room not bolted down to anything. So considered as no safe in room.
The hotel was generally very good. Staff were helpful and spoke a reasonable amount of English. The breakfast was great - could get either Chinese or western food. There are a number of restaurants and a shopping centre within walking distance of the hotel. There is also a direct bus from the hotel to the airport for 27yuan. The location is great for science city but if you are there to sight see the hotel is about an hour from the town centre. Taxis are cheap - to be driven to town is 64yuan. The rooms have all the western conveniences - proper toilet, mini bar, Aircon, wifi, bath etc. Would definitely stay here again.
