“Good Location & Price, but....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2010

I booked and was confirmed 2 rooms with GZ Tongcheng Business Co in early Dec09(if you seach this apt in yahoo, the first website to appear will be this, email: reservation@grandcontinentalapartment.com) but was shocked to learn that my reservations were not received by the "hotel" when I arrived. Worse still, the unfriendly & rude staff told me that all rooms were taken up! After some discussion with Tongcheng & the supervisor, I was finally offered a 2 bedroom unit at a slightly higher price than the price of 2 rooms combined (We took it as it would be too troublesome to go around looking for rooms with 2 young children and an elderly mother).
The room is modern and looks new but filled with the smell of cigerattes. The beds are hard but alright for us. The best about this accommodation is the location: Its near the other end of Beijing Road so, away from the noise of the crowded "walking street". Turn right from the exit of Grand Continental (GC) and walk about 10 mins, its the Haizhu Square and Metro station. Turn left and you're along the famous Beijing Road. The Airport Express Bus line no. 5 stops at Haizhu Square (Guangzhou Hotel). Don't cross the road to Bin Bin Plaza, walk towards Lido Hotel and you'll see GC before reaching Lido which is diagonally opposite. If not for the poor service of the counter staff and smell of the room, I would have rated this place higher.

Excellant decor.

Though we didn't use the room service much because of difference in working hours but the size of the room and facilities were a HUGE value for money. I have never stayed in Guangzhou in this kind of a hotel for that kind of money.

The hotel is new, with excellent location, just next to beijing road, which you can do all your shopping there. And the pearl river is just a 10-15 minutes walk away. The hotel staffs were also pretty helpful and nice. I booked a superior twin by mistake and they ask if I wanted a queen bed as I was travelling with my partner, and they gave me a free upgrade to deluxe room, which is really big for the price I paid with dvd player and a sofa. Just that the bed is really hard, if you dun mind the bed, this hotel will be a good choice of stay. Plus there were security personnel too!
