(This hotel was know as the Vagada Hotel until about a month ago & had good reviews under that name on Trip Advisor)
I would say this Hotel is good for the Canton Fair because they provide a shuttle bus; otherwise it is a bit far from town and all the well known shopping markets. Having said that do not believe the Taxi drivers or Staff at the East Station when they say "Very, very far!!", the taxi trip should cost you no more than RMB150. If you are comfortable with taking the Metro from GZ East Station to GZ South Station then it will cost you RMB7 for the Metro & RMB17 for the taxi, but be warned the South Station is under renovation & the taxi station is not easy to find!! The station is not within walking distance of the hotel.
To the hotel's credit - The rooms are large, clean, come with Air Conditioning, a kettle, fridge & Safe. The staff are very helpful, most speak enough English to get by and if not will find someone who can help you. Breakfast is Chinese, i.e. noodles, tea eggs, etc, but there is Toast, fruit & coffee. There is also a supermarket across the road where you can gets snacks & drinks. Best of all the hotel has a massage centre, were you can get an hour long Foot Massage for next to nothing by Western standards, very good if you have been walking all day!
