It's been a few years since staying at the Gladden Hotel and from the get go it's lost a lot of its former glory. Located in Shilong some 20 minutes from Dongguan Dongcheng city centre. It is convenient for the newly named Dongguan station with service from Shenzhen/Guangzhou line, not to be confused with the old Dongguan now Changping Station... More

I stayed one night in this hotel and I did not complain about this. Room and bathoom were clean but worn out. Sleeping quality was poor due to constant noise out of aircon even if it was switched off. Bed was not very comfortable due to the hard pillows. Breakfast had minimum selection of western food, limited to the toast,... More

When entering my room, I was struck by an intense heat from the AC - although it was September and in no possible way cold outside. Turning it all down helped a bit, but I'd have preferred a colder temperature. The newest thing in the entire hotel is the room service menu nicely displayed on the table. However, when checking...

Arrived at Guangzhou airport and was picked up by a driver personally arranged. We did hear you can catch a shuttle from Hong Kong Airport directly here. First time in China and do not know what to expect. Slightly on the edge when we arrived at the hotel because it wasn't located near malls or eateries. Rooms were big, toiletries... More

Will definitely be back again. Please continue the good work! Executive Suite Garden View is perfect. 2 rooms. Big sofa area, 1 bar counter, 2 toilets and one of the bathroom with steam room! King size bed too! Breakfast so so... every hotel serve the same buffet breakfast.

The best thing about this hotel was the Japanese restaurant. It was owned & operated from outside of the hotel. Excellent service & food. The hotel was standard fare - More than adequate & made eating in Japanese restaurant very convenient. Would probably stay there again.

I have stayed at this hotel several times in the past 5 years, and for the most part, they are doing a good job. All areas of the hotel are very clean and well maintained. The room layout is good, but its time to upgrade a few things; the carpet in the halls needs to be re-stretched to remove the... More

It is a hotel with good facilities, grand design and comfortable. Great value for what it can offer. However, staff is poorly trained and food is not good enough. It is to a level where my husband refuses to go down for the breakfast. In that there is another story. One morning my husband decided not to have the breadfast... More
