“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The room is spacious and well furnished, beddings and pillows are very comfortable and air con works perfectly. The hotel is well managed and the staff are well trained and very helpful.

The hotel is in the "old town" of Guangzhou and there are a few Chinese restaurants within one or two minutes' walk serving Cantonese style Yum Cha, lunch and dinner. We stayed in Tianhe area on the way back and found the food in Tianhe area a lot better in terms of both variety and quality. For sightseeing, this hotel is a short taxi ride to Sha Mian Island and Chen Jia Ci.

Booked a triple sharing superior room and was fortunately upgraded to a suite. Hotel staff are friendly and hotel is clean. This hotel is situated in the middle of Shang Xia Liu pedestrian shopping street. On the other side of the hotel is a pet street selling pet dogs, cats, birds, pet food and accessories. At the end of pet street, there is another street selling Chinese herbs. There are plenty of food choices (KFC, McDonald, Guangzhou restaurant (famous for their dim sum). Will stay in this hotel again if I visit Guangzhou again.

I was just ther two weeks ago, and since I was on a bussiness trip for a trading fair, we allways had breakfast at the hotel. The price was somewhere in the 35 USD per person. Since time was more important we did not care that much.
Staff was incredible. Ask for Simon, the bellboy.
For some reason We booked another room afetr the fair was over and the price of the room was considerably lower, very undertsandable (demand), but food was also half price. That I cant believe, since is food, if any, it should be lower.

Room Tip: Taxi cab for this hotel are very hard to find, they dont like to go to this part of the city

Shifu is loctaed just at the pedestrian area in Guangzhou and are near the old town and the local markets. There is huge shopping possibilities nearby but not many restaurants and bars. The hotel is nice with spacious rooms. The room I stayed in was a little worn. Very expensive minibar and bar at the hotel. The WiFi is not free and if you choose to use it you must be very patient - it is extremely slow. Nice big pool at the roof where the fair gym also is located. Breakfast buffet has a good variety of Chinese and western meals. Serviceminded and helpful staff.

Stayed here when we arrived at china and it was the best decision ever. It's bang in the middle of the bustling pedestrian street. Great shopping all around. Rooms nice and huge. View average. No free wifi in rooms. Staff very helpful. Definitely recommend if u wanna stay in the older parts of gaungzhou .

We are a mid fifties couple who stayed here for 3 days after a 2 week tour of China. This hotel is fantastic, from the minute we arrived we were made to feel special. The first thing we noticed was the beautiful smell that was thru the hotel foyer. Check in was quick, as were our bags to our room. The room was beautiful, usual supplies, toiletries, water and a fruit platter was a nice touch. Staff are very polite, speak excellent English, always smiling. They cannot do enough for you. Breakfast is superb, lots of choices, nice bar area very intimate. Location wise, you walk out of the hotel and you are in the main pedestrian shopping street. Highly recommend this hotel, one of the best we have stayed in.

Room Tip: Executive rooms include an executive lounge if you want to have breakfast away from the main restaur...
