This hotel is a western friendly and wallet friendly hotel. It is very central in Guangzhou, only a few minutes walk to the closest metro stop. the Room was a bit basic but still nice. I would say that most of the shops and restaurants in the surrounding area appeared to be Chinese speaking (obviously) but most places the staff... More

The hotel is located not too far from the great shopping of Guangzhou and close to a metro station. Most of the eating places around are 100% Chinese with nothing written in English but the staff did try, The rooms were ok but with the horrible glass walls for the bathroom, Throughout the hotel, even on the non smoking floor,...

The hotel itself is just round the corner from the underground station, and from there, you can get around the city in no problem. You can even walk to the Canton Tower in about half an hour and that is well worth it at night. The hotel was clean, large rooms and the staff were very helpful. My only gripe... More

Stayed here for 5 nights for the Canton Fair in April 2014. It was a nice room and friendly staff, buses to fair always on time. In a great area, close to the Metro and plenty of places to eat and shop around the hotel. It was by far the nicest or cheapest hotel on my trip, but if I... More

Very much geared towards the Asian community, adequate rooms which are basic with no English channels on the TV - breakfast was not good for Western tastes however the dining room was decked out with tea displays around the walls. Distinct smell of cigarettes throughout the hotel with Chinese guests always with a cigarette in hand, even the bedrooms smelt... More

Bit tired but neat and tidy. Location is reasonable being close to metro and many good local eateries. Lots of banks nearby if looking for ATMs. My only criticism is the smoking. Perhaps it's normal in Guangzhou but patrons are allowed to smoke everywhere. After one night, I was unwell for 4 days. It could also been the smog but... More

My 7days stay in the hotel is memorable, it is strategically located close to a metro station, about four different shopping malls, lots of restaurants, electronic market, Kfc, mcdonalds and burger king all just around the corner. It's relatively cheap compare to other hotels of same standard, staffs are friendly even if u don't understand what they are saying the... More

The biggest plus point about this hotel is its location - it is right next to a Metro station and loated in a busy junction. The rooms are clean but quite small and the breakfast is so-so. The staff dont speak too much English. It is a basic budget hotel.

All the taxi drivers we came across over our one-week stay knew where this hotel was located so you don't have to worry that you can't find the place. The hotel room has everything my husband and I needed: Three elevators, consistently hot shower with adjustable water volume, good air-con, good ventilation (we had a smoking room), excellent and free...
