“Newly Renovated 5 Star - Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2010

I stayed in a suite which looked as though it had been renovated recently. Walking around the hotel there are areas that are not renovated so ask for a renovated room. Prices were very reasonable - romos at USD$ 40, suites USD$ 80. Restaurant for breakfast is a Western Fusion menu which is a bit odd. But basic western items are all there. Only negative is that the hotel is in the middle of nowhere but then so is Kaiping! And the bed was rock hard.

I've stayed at the Pan towers or Ever joint about 6 times now. Great and friendly service and always plenty of staff around. The pool is basic but very clean and big. if you stay try and get one of the renovated floors there is about 5-6 that have been done, its just a bit more modern and the beds are more softer, if you luck out ask for a topper pad for the bed.
The resturant is very good and try the dinner buffet if you have a night off wine and dinning. I was talking with one of the Indian cooks who reconises me evertime so most are pretty friendly and just want to talk. breakfast yum chai is the best i have had

i was in the international hotel and having a buffet meal and it got to apoint i was amazed off the hotel and what i saw then i wanted to see the best bedroom they had which was on the 25th floor with a lounge and a big bath and also shower, And also in the room's there is free internet access which is good and also down stair near the reception there is a wifi spot which is free and and also there is karoke room's available in this hotel which is very busy and hard to get a hold off so if your interested in a karoke room you need to book up early.

Thanks to a terrible lunch at the lobby restaurant, i managed to get food poisioning whilst staying at this hotel. The freezing-cold room and rock solid bed made for a truely memorable stay. :)

On a positive note, the location is decent and the staff were friendly.

3-star at best.

Hello, my name is Steven. I am a local interpreter for foreign businessmen that are doing business in Kaiping and the greater Guangdong area. Because of the nature of my work, I have the opportunity to live in almost all of the hotels in Kaiping. Although it is more expensive than other hotels, Pan Tower International hotel is one that i would recommend for a comfortable place to relax and get use to the jet-leg.

Pros:
1. Great View of Kaiping City from the hotel rooms.
2. Nice, clean and quiet rooms
3. Great Karaoke rooms
4. Friendly staffs always look out for foreigner's interest
5. Out of all the hotels in Kaiping, it has the best service.
6. Great breakfast that will satisfy western taste
7. It has a bank next door for currency exchange.
Cons:
1. Most expensive in town.
2. laundry is very pricey.
3. Karaoke is also very pricey.
4. have to walk 15 minutes to the bus station.
5. when it rains very hard, the hotel will flood and there is no way of getting back to the hotel until the water recedes.
6. Parking on the weekend is horrible.
7. Located on an island, so if you want to do some shopping in kaiping. You must walk for half an hour.


If you have further question on hotels in kaiping or you just need a local translator to help you out in kaiping. Please email me at info@langser.com.

I agree with all the other reviews. Pan Tower is doing pretty well and is above average for a Chinese hotel. Check in was relatively painless with some English spoken. Room was clean and comfortable - beds are firm which might be a problem for those who want a soft bed. TV had a couple of Hong Kong English channels, and the CCTV English one. I especially liked the non smoking floor - not that common in China!

Reception were very helpful in arranging a car and giving information about the dialous. This is about the only reason for a tourist to visit Kaiping, and the hotel has all the important information in English, and are able to talk about it to some extent. We had booked a package with the hotel which included coupons for the dialous, but the hotel can also sell these at a discount.

We were disappointed with the Chinese restaurant, but maybe because we went Sunday lunchtime and they were very busy. The range of food at lunch appeared limited, and service very poor. Breakfast the next morning was much better, with quite a good range.

The hotel can call you a taxi, which is good as there are no taxis passing the hotel - it is a little isolated from the centre of town.

I'm staying in Kaiping at the Pan Tower International Hotel for two months from Aug - Sept 2009. The regular rates starts at 800 RMB for a std up to 8,000 RMB for an exec suite. My GF managed to get a Corp Rate of 250 RMB. There's a 10% Service Charge on top of that. The room is excellent and the housekeeping is top notch. Though other reviews complain about the hardness of the mattress, on the top of my mattress was a sponge addition. The breakfast buffet is top notch with many selections to choose from. They also have a nice swimming pool, workout gym and excellent & clean locker room facilities. As others mentioned, there's a KTV, sauna & beauty center which I haven't used. The Guangdong Restaurant on the 2nd Flr is considered as "High Class" yet the food is averaged at best & overpriced compared to the street restaurants where you can get the same type of food. My GF mentioned that this Hotel restaurant is notarious for pickpocketing. She had a bag stolen. You can hear the other room doors close as every door is close to each other due to the configuration of the Hotel. Each room has an excellent view of the river. The other negative about the PTIH is it's location. I like it for running/jogging. It's away from traffic and many locals come to the park during the evenings. But it's far away from downtown Kaiping. Except for the park, there's nothing in this area. I came here because my GF lives & works five minutes away. Otherwise, I can get a similar accomodation for 30% less. A taxi ride will cost 10 RMb and takes 15 minutes. I rate this place 9/10.
