As topic, no air conditioning in room.... it's so hot inside the room. Window only can open slightly, but so noisy outside til 1-2am coz many construction... means you cannot sleep well in this Novotel. Lucky, i stay there only one night for business trip... not recommend

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. The hotel was pretty comfortable and the size of our room was good. The breakfast was good the first day but they serve pretty much the same thing everyday so towards the end it was harder to find something we liked. The location of the hotel is convenient to anywhere you need to go and the staff was pretty friendly.

We used the Novotel as venue for Project kick off meeting with people from UK and China. Rooms for those staying overnight were clean and comfortable. The meeting room on the 28th floor was private with plenty of natural light. The highlight was lunch in the restaurant- the food was really delicious with such a variety of dishes. Good place and I will stay there again for the next meeting.

I was travelling on business with two Chinese colleagues. This is my fifteenth trip to China and one of the poorest hotels I have stayed in anywhere. Room had cracked sink, hair on floor, no TV channel guide, hairdryer overheated in 2 minutes, shower sprays more water on ceiling than on bather, no glasses for water, external building work very noisy. After one night at 25 ºC my Chinese colleagues asked for air con to be fixed at <20 ºC. It did not happen. After two nights they sent a man with a screwdriver who removed the ventilation panel and pushed back the insulation. Still ca. 24 ºC. Staff suggested opening the window but had tried this and only had loud construction noise. Third night was moved to the other side of the hotel, still no air con and still noisy construction with window open. Fourth night I was exhausted and staff admitted that air con was never below 22 ºC, i.e. no air conditioning. Asked for complaints form, but they don't have any. Very poor management/ staff training. I note that many of the four star reviews are from Guiyang and from Chinese travellers. This is not a four star hotel and certainly not the standard I expect from Novotel.

The room was very clean with a big TV, and the fitness center was quite without staff, so you can enjoy your excise time anytime. By the way, almost staff was very friendly even though they English was really poor

I had a very nice stay at guiyang novotel. I had a welcome when i enter the lobby. The bellman smile friendly and assist with my luggage. Breakfast provided with western and eastern at a good price...

Hotel with good locator and facilities, as a Accor member,Novotel always was my first choosing on my business trip , the room was very comfortable and quite, fitness center make me feel personality,👍

What this hotel has going for it is its location in the downtown area of Guiyang. Comfortable beds (read that as not rock hard). The staff helpful and friendly when I have problems about the city review

Rooms were spacious and with big TV and bathroom, but unfortunately air conditioning was very poor so it wasn't able to lower room temperature below 25 degrees, even after we asked many time the staff intervention. The room wasn't very clean, there were hairs in the moquette and lot of dirt even just after cleaning. Morover only a part of the staff is english speaking and we had troubles in making su understand!

I had the misfortune of staying in this hotel on a recent trip to Guiyang. Although cheap, central and OK for a tourist trip I would not recommend it for a business trip. Firstly, you have to ask for things that are needed on a business trip such as an iron and razors. Secondly the TV is abysmal, only two English channels(Axa and CNA) and one in French. What is more there is no access to the USB port on the TV, so you can't plug in an electronic device and watch a film. Finally the design of this hotel is just plain weird. The bathrooms are tiny and a bit poky. I think the addition of a swimming pool would improve this hotel for the business traveller, but I don't think this is in the offing if the new look restaurant is anything to go by.This now looks very cheap and has those gaudy VIP rooms loved by some people. If you are coming to Guiyang on business, I would recommend spending a little extra and taking an alternative accomodation option
