“Great Hotel with Character”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

This is really a fantastic hotel in a perfect location in Guangzhou for business or vacation. This is probably one of the best hotels I've stayed in in China and I like it, because it's not just your standard cookie cutter international hotel chain. The West building is especially nice, because it's in a very nice old colonial building which has recently been completely re-modeled inside.

I stayed in the West building and had a wonderful room with a beautiful balcony and view. The interior of the room was very modern and nice, although the design was a little too funky, post-modern for my taste. The breakfast buffett was not all that great, but it did the job.

There are lots of things to see on Shamian island, but I highly recommend checking out the Starbucks next to this hotel. It's also in a refurbished colonial era building and it's the nicest Starbucks I've seen anywhere in the world. You can sit outside on the front porch and relax with your coffee. From the hotel you can also easily take a nice stroll along the river promenade or walk over to the ShangXia Jiu Road for some awesome dim sum.

Room Tip: Get a room in the West building with a balcony. It's worth the extra money.

This hotel has it all, perfect location. Good clean modern rooms. Comfortable King size bed. I had a wide screen digital TV as probably did all the rooms. Canal nearby, river close too, tree lined streets on all sides, good restaurants closeby. I ate at the hotel most days. Food is good. Plenty to choose from, especially lunch and dinner time. Both Hotels are exceptional. One on the east and the other on the west side. There is a useful shop next door that sells drinking water, snacks, beer and most things you would require. Also next door there is a subway restaurant. The food is just like home in Australia. Fresh and priced fairly. The view from my room faced the hwy, hospital and canal. Windows are double glazed so not much noise.
I found it safe to walk outside at night with and without my wife. There are all type of shops on the Island, from gift shops, bottle shops, craft shops to a unique massage parlour. Very professional. The men are massaged by men and women by women. All professional. I even found a catholic church not far from the hotel.
Unfortunately, my wife had a stroke while on holiday and to my amazement the management and staff helped in any way possible, from communicating with the ICU in the hospital, to discounting my room rate and included 3 meals a day not just breakfast. They arranged tickets to return back to Australia. Taxied us to the doctors and airport. They were like family.
Without their help we would not have returned home. That alone should make any guest feel comfortable and at ease that they would be in deed helped in anyway. I give this hotel 5 stars and will re book in future. Thank you all......NO THANKS to the Australian Consul General who did not help us in anyway, no sympathy, nothing....except advise. Big help....not!

Room Tip: We had a first floor room opposite the canal and it was nice.....

The hotel is situated in Shamian, a lush green environment with beautiful colonial architecture buildings next to a beautiful river. The bedroom is quite large, nice and well furnished with nice and large pieces of furniture. The lobby is beautiful and nicely decorated. Staff are quite courteous, though some speak little English, but they will do their best to help you. Bathroom nice and clean. There is a convenient store at the corner. I stayed there for four days only on my way to Vancouver. Taxi from the hotel to shopping centres, Canton tower etc. are not expensive. A stroll around the leafy suburb and along the river is a joy during the day and early evening. A night cruise along the Pearl River is a real delight.

Very nice and clean hotel, the staff were very attentive, beautiful clean and picturesque surroundings. Some nice restaurants close by. Only a short walk to Pedestrian Street shopping area. (I think a must see at night). I would definitely stay there again.

The Hotel was very satisfactory, the rooms (West Building) were modern, clean and comfortable. Staff were always friendly and helpful, the breakfast was also satisfactory with a decent choice and above average quality. The Area is good with historical features and convenience stores nearby including Subway Sandwiches next door. Overall no complaints and would definitely stay here again on any future visit.

Good hotel for China standards. Colonial surrounds and nice park. Starbucks within a couple of mins walk for morning heart-starter. Quiet and well appointed. Hotel restaurant not the best, but a couple of nice ones within a few hundred meters...

Cow and Bridge has great Cantonese food at good price (US$7-12 for a good size plate). Decor was low class
, but clean. Pretty limited drink selections(but I'm an Aussie, so we're used to a pretty extensive range)! Every dish on menu has a picture; very helpful!

Orient express restaurant was fun. French cuisine in a tastefully appointed rail carriage. Pricey, but great atmosphere and food.

Easy walk to spice markets and shopping streets with clothing, shoes, handbags, pearls and jade predominantly. Jade pretty expensive, pearls are very good price if you know what you're doing (pretty simple)!

I have been traveling in China and as you might know is hard to find a Hotel with no smoke odor in the bed and carpet ! I stayed in the Victory West Building, they offer me a Executive room with balcony with breakfast for RMB580, the staff was friendly and they speak good english, the place might not be center, but the area is really nice !
