“A very helpful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

I stayed here during the canton fair. Initially I tried most of the western chains but then they were either sold out or frightfully expensive. Finally, a travel agent was able to get us rooms at the Vanburgh Hotel and we went in not expecting much. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel.

The hotel is a massive structure that is on a main avenue and is pretty easily accessible. If you are coming in from Hong Kong in a bus, get down at the first stop in Guangzhou and the hotel is a short ride away. The rooms are pretty standard stuff as you find in most hotels. Cleanliness was top-notch. The bathroom has both a bathtub and a shower unit. The good part was that the TV had a number of english channels including ESPN, HBO etc :) Room service and housekeeping were prompt and responsive.

Breakfast was standard stuff with a large number of chinese options. For dinner, we requested for Italian vegetarian options and the restaurant obliged us with some really nice food. There is a street full of small eateries & shops on the road opposite to the hotel (Shipai E Road) that people can try out.

A special mention of the Concierge desk. The guys there really helped us out in terms of restaurants to go to, canton fair registration as well as arranging for buses back to hong kong.

For Canton, the hotel offers a shuttle bus service. The hotel staff at the pickup point at the fair are also very helpful with bottles of water and cookies for everyone.

All in all, it was a pretty good experience and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

The Vanburgh is a clean and comfortable choice in Guangzhou. The oversized rooms are consistently clean. More importantly the AC works incredibly well! I was able to chill my room in the evening and get a great nights rest! While the rooms are a plus, there is not too much positive to say about the breakfast buffet. The quality of the food is just fair! Still, overall a good value and nice stay especially during Canton Fair.

Clean and comfortable place, spacious rooms and excellent breakfast.
Very close to the fair.
The only negative point is the wi-fi service: probably too many connection, the quality is bad!
price/quality good

Spent one night at this hotel recently. It is located downtown in a business area. Hotel was clean with very comfortable rooms. Not many attractions close by but good access to exhibition centres. Good location for business people attending expos.

Stayed here for a week. Great hotel very clean, great facilities and the food was also very good if not just a bit different to normal. I used the spa on 3 occasions great value for money and staff very well trained. Good central location, and I will be staying there again soon.

It was show time. So really things don't count - I guess it is only during the Canton Fair that almost all Hotels are full in Canton. One of our suppliers booked us in this Hotel. I guess you could say it is not bad. The Bell Boy's are rather efficient - Reception a bit frustrating but then what do you expect, Did not have a meal here, although did do breakfast in the morning, which was sort of 6.5 out of 10.
Nothing to shout about, but then nothing to complain about either.

I stayed at the hotel for a 2 day business planning and review meeting. Facilities were good, however I did move rooms to the other side of the hotel due to construction noise next door to the hotel. Overall it was a pleasant stay and a good alternative to holding a business planning meeting in Beijing.
