Great room rate , washing machine and self contained room.
Approximately 350meters to the subway. station (Shipaiqiao...)
Next door to the bank,and 24hr shop.
Across the road is a massive modern shopping centre that's open until 10pm at least, with an awesome food hall on level B1 - ( definately check this out... Cheap, new massive selection) and a supermarket on level B2- ole"
lovely neat clean room.
Locctane shampoos and soaps
Great selection for buffet breakfast- certainly worth it.
Bose stereo system in the room and free internet .
China post is about 300meters away if your partner shops too much at the wholesale markets around town .
And smiling friendly helpful Chinese staff a lot speak fluent English as do many in the Tianhe district.
They were renovating the reception on my last day no doubt to make things exceptional .Although there was no noise, that was scheduled for a couple of days. Don't let that deter you from all the positives.
We shall definitely return and stay here again as we both loved it.
Private car from the airport is around the 600rmb mark, taxi is 140rmb or
subway with one quick change on the same platform line 3 at Tiyu xilu station will cost you 8rmb.(2.50 aud)
Certainly take a look at new town 1 subway stop ( cost of subway rides are unbelievably cheap, ) or if you taxi it is 14rmb ($2 Aussie ) , there is a huge park near the river and a great place to watch the Led light show on the buildings , lots of restaurants and bars. Water fountains that dance with the music at night .
Subway is the best to get around , clean , quick, no traffic , or fumes and a lot of color .
A lot of people smile in Guangzhou and children, also ladies just pop up and translate to English when you need it out of the blue.
Very safe area and beautiful family friendly atmosphere.
We shall certainly stay here again as we loved the Guangzhou experience and weather.
Thank you staff at the ascott apartments
