“Spacious rooms on surprising Shamian Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The Victory has two seperate buildings. Unfortunately the reception has difficulties in pointing out the correct route from the main building to the West wing, but at a second try the bellboy was helpful. The swimming pooli s in the main building like the bar, but nonetheless, the West wing is a pleasant building with a nice 'wintergarden' type of breakfast room.
Large room with a spacious balcony, well laid out bathroom, but no drawers were available. Nice 'goodies'.
Be careful with internet! Both of my laptops were deregulated after tuning in (Chinese censorship?), so I had to reset them once back. No problems with my smartphone, however. Probably one should use the free PC that is available in the room to overcome this problem.

Shamian Island is the nearly over-restored French/English concession with many restaurants, unfortunately most of them with a French cuisine. However, there are also some Cantonese restaurants with terraces. Around the corner is the cosiest Starbucks I have come across.
Don't forget to visit the 'gei's' at the other side of the bridge. Living China ilke 200 years ago.

The VICTORY Hotel is located on quiet Shamian Island. Surrounded by trees and attractive historic by historic buildings it offers tasteful rooms with every facility at very reasonable prices. The beds are so comfortable and there are many facilities nearby - convenience stores, banks, ATM 's and restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is exceptionally clean and staff are helpful. It is a sea of tranquility in a bustling Guangzhou.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing inwards away from the main highway. They have non-smoking rooms.

I stayed there for 5 days in march this year and truly enjoyed it. The location is perfect on the Shamian Island. Rooms are well equipped with all necessities and the service is good. No bad experience for sure. WiFi works well. I stayed in the East building where the restaurant is. Breakfast is good. Lots of choice. Around the hotel nice area to walk and plenty of restaurants. Close to a subway stop on the excellent subway. All in all a perfect location and would definitely come back here

Had stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The executive business room is well furnish and comfortable. The manager is helpful in accommodating the request. The breakfast is quite good by local standard.

The excellent part of this hotel is the location. The hotel is located in an exotic place of sha mian island, whereby you can take a walk in the morning with the beautiful landscape and historical buildings. The nearest Metro station is HuangSha station which is about 8-10 mins. walk from the hotel and you need to cross the overhead bridge.

We booked 2 rooms because there is 3 of us, I got an ordinary room which was good and comfortable. My friends were given a suite room which was big and had a computer for the same price. So we hanged out in there and had a great time. The only thing about this hotel is the taxi passing the area, upon departure we had to wait 15 mins luckily one passed.

Booked an Executive Double in the West Building. Room was clean, spacious, very nicely appointed. Had no view. Signs warned against opening windows because of mosquitoes.

Front desk staff was very helpful. Business center in East Building provides concierge services. Business center staff spoke limited English and could not help with anything but the most basic, routine questions. Chinese restaurant in East Building served good food, even accommodating our request for no MSG, but service was very slow. A simple noodle dish took 75 minutes and arrived only after repeated requests.

Hotel offers free shuttle to Pearl River Cruise and a few other places, which is nice.

Thai restaurant around the corner has reliably good food at reasonable prices.

Lots of family businesses in the neighborhood offer laundry services much less expensively than does the hotel.
