Located in University City, an area with little to nothing to do, it is the best hotel available. Our group stayed for 15 days in July, 2014. The breakfast buffet was good. The rooms were okay but none of the mini-fridges in any of the rooms worked. The staff was the highlight; although they spoke limited English they went out... More

I guess at £39 a night I had little expectation but the rooms were very nice. Open window from bathroom to living area interesting, at least I could watch tv while showering. Mini bar empty and view not amazing. Staff need far more training and there english was not great. Room keys didnt work and check out process slow. Western... More

This hotel is located in the university of Guangzhou precinct - read far from anywhere! We used this hotel whilst attending the Canton Fair in October. Whilst they provide a shuttle, it is virtually impossible to find a taxi driver, if willing, to find the place. If it was not for my Chinese colleague, I would probably still be circling... More

New hotel on University City Island. I stayed in a suite. The room was excellent, although the bed was a little too firm for my taste. Cable internet was hit and miss and very slow. No wireless in the room. Useless! I went to the lobby to used the wireless, which was OK. The TV has one English channel, some... More

Good hotel ONLY if you are travelling for Guangzhou (Canton) Fair. They have a "bus" that will take you to the fair for free. The hotel is not far from Pazhou, and since it's located outside the city it's a short trip to the Fair (not much traffic around). The english of the hotel staff is limited, so you better... More

After a 90 minute taxi ride, we finally arrived at this hotel, which I hoped would be close to the Canton Fair. But that was a 20 minute ride away... Fairly clean rooms, but only chinese speaking tv channels, rock hard beds, and absolutely no other guests in the hotel... Extremely boring... Suffered dinner in the restaurant with a waitress...

This hotel is in the middle of nowhere! We were staying here in order to attend the Canton Fair and although the rooms are nice the staff are about as much use as a chocolate fireguard. They are very inattentive, it would take a good hour for them to remove the plates from our table. The food is dire, i... More

The rooms are ok, but the people working here dont have any clue about what cleanliness and service means. It will take you 20minutes to complete your check-in (and you are lucky if the card works on the first try) There is nothing around this area beside schools, so you are forced to dine (unless you are up for a...

Room was nice, The window through to the shower is... More
