“Guangzhou, City of International Exhibitions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2010

Nanyang King's Gate Hotel, though located a little away from the Pazhou Exhibition Centre (relative to other hotels), offered a good ambiance for stay and a western restaurant with a good spread at Breakfast time.

The limited choice for strict vegetarians is well cooked and goes well with steamed rice.

The restaurant staff wear the best smiles and make a genuine effort to converse in English while others struggle to do so especially the housekeeping and room service staff.

Best way to make them understand English words is to spell it for them...this makes it easier as their accent is very different.

The hotel has an interior with an imposing Gold color including the rooms. This gives a glittering effect which makes one feel like being in a leisure hotel, though I found quite a few business men (including us).

The City of Guangzhou has many attractions (apart from businesses) and one boat ride on the Pearl River at night gives a flavor of its richness. A must see.

The taxi service is quite reliable and affordable. The ride to the airport takes about an hour (under normal traffic conditions) and costs about 120-150 RMB.

This is my first visit to Guangzhou and China too, overall it had been a very pleasant with not many surprises.

Definitely impressed with the infrastructure and progress this Country is making and driving its businesses all over the world.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2010

The hotel is emblazoned with regal decor and everywhere seems to be covered in 'gold'. Stayed two nights in three superior rooms at Triumph Wing. What is unusual is a bathing compartment that provides different shower possibilities - hand held shower rose, fixed shower directly above the head, and sprinklers at the side. A steam bath can be had inside at the press of the button. Although it claims to be a five-star hotel, there is no swimming pool nor a gym associated with that status. For the price of RMB380 per night per room, I guess I'm not complaining except for the strong odour of tobacco lingering in the room - an irritant for most non-smokers in many venues in Guangzhou.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2009

I spent 4 days during the Canton trade fair in april 2009. Was given a room in the back building overlooking a wall. The location was close to most business offices which was good and there was a free bus to the tradefair. This hotel is well decorated but not well maintained. My room had stains on the carpet and there was this pungent smell across the hall way.
The staff wasn't very attentive and the breakfast buffet was poorly made. the orange juice wasn't fresh either. During my stay, two staff members were very rude to me. I have stayed in three other hotels in guangzhou and this by far is the worst. I will not be going back next month but rather stay in holiday inn or westin.
