“Budget hotel, bad location, cash only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

The hotel is no frills, just a place to sleep. Nothing more. The air conditioner took a while to cool down the room.
It is right next to a market so the outside sidewalk is dirty, crowded, and noisy. It is also far from the closet subway station, need to take a taxi there or 4 stops by buses.
The front desk doesn't take credit card as payment and asked for 3 nights' cash deposit to cover my three nights' stay. I didn't have that much cash on the 1st night. The next day when I came back, I couldn't get in my room and needed to put down the cash deposit.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

This hotel was a pleasant surprise considering it was cheap!

The room was clean and very spacious, with the usual amenities. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean. The free breakfast though is very typical Chinese, not much for tourists but it's still ok for us. There is McDonalds just a few minutes walk from the hotel if you want a "safe" bet.

The front desk was helpful although there was only one guy who can speak English well. If you plan to go somewhere, request the staff to write your destination in Chinese. Taxi drivers don't speak English! Transport was convenient as taxis and buses are just outside the hotel.

The area around the hotel gives you a glimpse of the Chinese daily grind, i.e., vendors sell their wares from food to clothing to herbs to housewares, etc. We were able to buy some really cheap but good quality stuff.

Important: Make sure you have enough yuan before coming over because they dont have foreign exchange; only Bank of China will do that for you. Also, if you are taking the train from Hongkong and back like we did, it is better to purchase tickets online because there is a long queue at the train station.

Over-all, the hotel was really great value for money and we will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Although there is not much of a view to speak of, ask for a room with window.

The Hotel is Great service, no Frills, Best value, the rooms are clean and tidy, bathrooms are neat and clean, no stink, beds are comfortable and rooms are spacious, you don"t feel you are in a box. Specially suitable for business travelers to Guangzhou China, the hotels wired Internet in rooms is fast, lobby wifi is also ok.
The Morning Breakfast though is more for Chinese people, nothing much for Foreigners, they could improve this.
Hotel is located not far from Main Train Station and Subway is just 10 mins in taxi so is convenient.
Overall the service is great, Total value for money.

if you only need a nice sleep and cheap this is the place that you should be. Breakfast is tropical Chinese. Room and Free internet are nice. Bathroom clean and better than any cheap place in china. It quite similar like Holiday inn express ( i believe that same concept)

Area : Ok but not great. Far to walk to subway about 20 mins walk
