I went to China this summer and visited few cities. The best among others is this hotel. Spacious room, clean, delicious and complete breakfast. Location wise also very near with wallmart. You can shop till you drop. But too bad the lighting in the room is very poor.
This hotels best days are way behind it. There were cockroaches in my room. The whole place smells of smoke. The gym is in a maze and opening hours are short. The lift waiting time in the morning can be anything up to 20 minutes so get a low floor room if you have any appointments you need to keep. Didn't have breakfast though can't imagine it would be worth waking up for. Only saving g grace is it is next to a subways station and there are Starbucks and other fast food downstairs. Avoid if possible.
It’s a 1 hr ride from Baiyun Airport to the Rosedale Hotel located in Haizhu District – in the south-center of Guangzhou City. Their rooms are spacious and the amenities are similar to what you'd expect in any other usual hotel. In our six breakfasts at the Rosedale, almost all of the food selections were the same. Fried rice, scrambled egg, boiled egg, stir fried noodles served with chili, some sort of glutinous cake, ma lai gao, steamed ham, milk ladled from a soup pot, rice rolls and rice noodles, as well as a congee station. There’s also a bread station, and an eggs station (sadly, they do not serve omelettes. They just serve sunny side up fried eggs). For beverages, they have grapefruit juice, kiwi juice, orange juice, coffee, water etc. For dessert, you can have original flavored yogurt, as well as fruits if you wish. Overall, breakfast is okay and better than your typical standard Chinese hotel. The location of this hotel is very convenient - Rosedale Hotel is situated on Changgang Station 昌崗站, where lines 2 and 8 meet. There’s a Walmart a few steps east, a Cafe de Coral, a pharmacy, a medical university, fastfood, dimsum stalls, a bakery and a teh tarik shop nearby. If you will choose to stay in this hotel, the convenient location should be your number 1 consideration.
The hotel is approx an hour from Baiyun airport. I was upgraded to a suite which has quite a Raffles feel about it. Nicely appointed. Only one entertainment channel iPod tv - showing mainly war type movies. Other than that, endless news repeats, mainly in Chinese. Nothing in the mini bar, Sonata restaurant only offers buffet. Sat in the bar for 20 minutes without service. Went to the bar to order. Didn't know an espresso martini. Ordered gin and tonic. Asked for nuts or crisps - nothing available. I think it's the first bar I have ever been in that doesn't offer these. I think I was suffering with "single woman, travelling solo" syndrome - you become invisible. Overall hotel is good but could sharpen up in some areas.
Hotel booking was made through agoda for a deluxe king room for a 7 nights stay. Check in was fast and we were immediately upgraded to an executive king non smoking room with 2 room keys promptly given upon request. Room size was just nice with enough space to move around despite having 2 large luggages. Available was tea/coffee making facilities, toiletries, 2 bottles of free mineral water daily, a fridge, safe box, tv, good free wifi and even an umbrella for rainy days but no ironing facilities. Unlike most new hotels which has just a glass wall and door separating the room and the bathroom, the hotel bathroom still has a solid wall and door to give you some privacy. Lighting was ok but maybe not so suitable for reading at night as all 6 lamps were using yellow bulbs. Breakfast is on the 5th floor with a good choice of both asian and western food. There are also plenty of eateries just behind the hotel which is open from morning till night. Location is strategic as the airport express bus stops just beside this hotel. Metro is just round the corner beside McD entering from Exit C2 at Changgang station for travel on line 2 & line 8. However, not much choice for shopping as nearby malls are average only. For Canton fair guest, this hotel provides free shuttle bus services 5 times daily starting at 8.30am to 9.30am with free mineral water and coffee provided. Trip to the fair takes about 40 min. Return trip starts from 4.45pm to 6.30pm. On the last day, only 2 trips are available at 8.30am and 9.30am returning at 11.30am and 12 noon. Please remember to note the bay number for your hotel bus for your return trip which should be available in t flyers given. You can also take the metro at Changgang station direct to Fazhou station 8 stops away without having to change lines and come out at exit B for access to Hall B. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at this hotel and will certainly recommend it to others.
Visited for the Canton Fair. Great location, just by metro station. I have stayed here before in the past. Hotel is in great position, but now dated and needs a refurbished. Breakfast was good and included but room was poor especially the bathroom. Please see pictures.
Staff is dumb as can be. Booking was clueless. Sold our room and told us no room on a confirmed booking. Can never image a worst hotel operations ever in the whole entire world. Cannot say more. Left stranded in GuangZhou in the middle of the night.
With Cangang Statiin of Line 2 just 150 m away, this hotel is simply q bargain woth huge room, gym, buffet breakfast, nearby walmart, all great eateries and restaurants. I paid on average 'US$58 per night. Guess what? I was upgr@ded to a an executive suite.
The Good: 1. Location - I picked this hotel for the second time is because of the location. It's the drop off and pick up point for the cross border bus to and from Hong Kong. Changgang Metro Station is just a few steps away. Lots of restaurants nearby. 2. Staff service - Staff were quick to assist with my room change request. The Bad: 1. Noise insulation - Unlike my previous stay which was flawless, I was assigned initially to a room just next to the lifts. They make too much noise while going up and down the guest floors. Try to get rooms as far as possible from the lifts. 2. Room state - Everything was getting old. The Verdict: Just like my last review, I would have to say... Don't get your hopes up.
This is a good hotel. Nice location. Rooms are good. Service is also good. Two Complaints or feedbacks 1. Need to increase more english speaking staff. I think only 1-2 people spoke English and we were able to communicate with them. Others couldn't. 2. Breakfast - As an Indian and a Vegetarian i could find nothing suitable to us. Our entire group for that matter. Bread, Cereal and Fruits were the only options. So you guys need to add atleast one Indian item to breakfast when u have guests from India or Indian origin staying with you. Other than that no complaints. Very Good hotel. Would definitely recommend to all.
