We stayed in a standard twin room. First impression was the room was reasonably spacious (though very tired). Handy to have small kitchenette with fridge, kettle, sink, microwave etc. Bathroom was clean, spacious shower. Had to turn on hot water before using the shower.
Beds were very hard (typical chinese beds), though were slightly larger than a normal single bed which was nice.
The view of the river was nice when you could actually see anything out the window (Guangzhou is very polluted).
Service at the front desk was not very good, only one person spoke English, and were unable to give me basic directions or help us book train tickets etc.
The whole property is looking very tired, and in need of a makeover, though I believe some of the upper floors are already undergoing refurbishment. Wasn't terrible though.
Breakfast was 30Yuan per person, buffet. Very limited western options, wouldn't recommend eating there. McDonald is only a short stroll away anyway.
Beijing Lu is maybe a 7-10 minute walk away, which has some good shopping and HEAPS of dining options.
Guangzhou is a great city for shopping, and there is plenty to do just in the hotel area.
Given 4* rating, as we only paid $55US / night, got a great rate with Agoda.com. Excellent value for money.
