Its our 4th time at the Shangri-La hotel and it's convenience is always the main reason to return, avoiding traffic jams and queues for bus trips saves at least a days worth of work. The hotel itself especially caters fair visitors with trade registration center and a business center with the usual couriers paperwork ready to be completed. On my... More

Awesome hotel close to the exhibition centre. I went there for the Canton fair and was amazed by the service and quality I found. Communications can be difficult since the staff doesn't speak English - or very little only - but all in all it was very well organized. Maybe a little older already but still in good conditions.

I have stayed at this hotel for several years. One has to lower your standard when you are in China. So based on past visits, stays have been very good. My latest trip however was a shock. Must be under new hotel management team. Communication in English is very difficult nearly all the staff serving you have difficulty in understanding... More

Huge and luxury hotel, high priced Very close to exhibition centre and to mtr. Rooms are big spacious and clean Restaurant is good but expensive Breakfast amazing, you can have everything They make you pay 10rmb each page if you need to print something, for 200€/night you expect this at least for free

The hotel it's self was very good, excellent service, good breakfast with plenty of choice. The only problem was that the hotel was quite far away from things and getting taxis proved a little on the slow side. Would recommend for business travel but not if you want to get a feel for the city or do some sightseeing as... More
