I was really impressed by Henry Hotel. Check in was quick, and the receptionist spoke pretty good English and advised me on internet connection and the airport bus.
I stayed here because I needed to be near the airport. Took a taxi here from central Guangzhou which cost 130Y (£13/$20). Not sure how you would get here by public transport. The Guagnzhou North rail station is very nearby, but getting there isn't easy with suitcases etc. Probably a better alternative is to take the metro to airport, then catch the airport shuttle bus. It costs 8RMB and takes about 25 minutes.
I took the bus quite early in the morning (0600h) so there was no traffic. Dead easy, the bell boy in the lobby made sure he flagged it down when it came into the drive. Your alternative is a 50-60RMB taxi ride which takes a little less time, about 20 minutes.
Room was fantastic. Two non-smoking floors, and that's quite rare for a hotel in China. Lovely shower, great bed and linen, wired internet in the room. Impressed!
Location isn't wonderful, but it's at least an authentic little Chinese neighbourhood. Plenty of bicyclists, a little street food market and a lot of shops selling clothes and things far less pricier than their central Guangzhou counterparts. Not terribly tourist-friendly, but if you're staying here you're probably not there for the Huadu location.
Overall : good value rooms, and fine if you need to stay near the airport.
