Big building (but not nice) with 300+ rooms. We stayed in A block in "Deluxe bedroom" but room was just ok (small room, different damages on the walls, light not working in bathroom, ...) Bed is ok and bathroom is big enough (bathtube + shower) Staff is helpful. Not so much choice of hotels in this city so Gayoe is... More

My stay at the Gaoye Hotel was a most pleasant one. The staff and management was not only excellent but they went beyond the call of duty in customer service. There was one situation they became very attentive and caring for their customers and took immediate action to resolve the problems that incurred. This showed genuineness in the staff and... More

My family was here on a Roots tour to visit our ancestral villages in Taishan. It was so nice to come back to this nice hotel after a visit to the villages. Rooms were modern, spacious and comfortable. The Chinese restaurant was also very good - although English can be a problem there. Just point at the picture menu. Breakfast... More

I have stayed here twice and once at the Phoenix, and there is no doubt this is the pick of them. While the Phoenix is nice, it is way out of town, and very artificial - it's breakfast offering is also much more traditional Chinese while the Gaoye has a selection of both Chinese & western. That having been said... More

Decided to stay here with my family for 3 days recently, based on Trip Advisor reviews. Must say that the staff here are friendly and efficient and the service was very good. I had a hiccup with our booking - due to no fault of the hotel – (used a third party website which turned out a mistake), which meant... More

A very good hotel in a great location - within walking distance to shops, and the main street. The bus station for coaches going to Guang Zhou (and other destinations) is right across the road (approximately 2.5 hour journey). Rates are great value as well. We stayed in a standard room, which was spacious, clean, and had wonderful views of... More

I have been visiting Taishan for 10 years and have seen a significant improvement in hotels in that time. Previously stayed in The Gardens hotel and more recently The Phoenix. I now think Gaoye is now the pick of the hotels in Taishan. Although this rating is relative as there are much better hotels in larger Chinese cities. In terms... More

This is the only hotel in which I've stayed in Taishan, so I cannot compare it with others. Even though it gets praise in some reviews as being the best hotel in town, it would be a mistake to expect it to be similar to the best hotel in a larger Chinese city. That being said, it was adequate to... More

We stayed 3 nights, newer hotel, clean rooms, good beds, modern bathroom. Breakfast featured some American style food; coffee, eggs, sausages, bread, as well as Chinese style food; such as congee with various ingredients, vegetables, fruits. Many family villages 20 minutes outside of Taishan we were able to visit my mom's home and my dad's home. I don't speak Chinese... More

This is a luxurious hotel and I enjoyed it thoroughly. As a spoiled American, I needed a modern hotel. This is in a great location, with all the usual amenities, including a western toilet and air conditioning. The bed was also very comfortable. I went during the first week of July and sorely needed the air conditioned room. It was... More
