“Another Business Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Made another business trip to Guangzhou and this has become one of my favorite hotels when visiting China. The staff is always friendly and you can always get some type of American food in the Patton Cafe if you are not a fan of Chinese cuisine. The breakfasts are very good and they will make you any type of eggs or omelets. My only issue, and it has been the same since my first visit, is the beds. These beds are VERY firm. If you do not like a firm mattress it may not be for you, of course I have never asked if they have other rooms with a softer mattress, maybe next time. Overall it is a very nice place, lots of helpful staff, and close to everything.

Room Tip: Mattresses are VERY firm!!

The hotel is next to Guangzhou Metro Station Line 3 Panyu Square Exit A. It is very convenient.

The lobby style is very nice. The buffet breakfast has many good choices.

This Hotel is recommended when you visit Panyu.

Just stayed for one night on Dec 20th as had a meeting very near the Hotel.HOtel is Huge with lots of amenities and restaurants but very far away from the centre like nearly 75 Minutes by taxi during traffic hours.So if you are either for the Canton fair or have some Meetings nearby then this Hotel is recommended.Couldnt have the breakfast as had to leave for an early meeting else the Rooms were quite spacious and a very fast Wi-Fi services in the rooms.2-3 English Channels on TV like Sports and HBO.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I would like to give this 3.5 stars, not 3, but also not 4 stars. This is a nice place to stay for business travelers. The breakfast has alot of american choices, to include omelets and waffles, along with many chinese breakfast choices. The hotel itself is very nice with any amenity you need. The staff have always been more than accomodating at any requests I have made and the housekeeping has always been very good.

I have stayed here at least 5 times in the past and the sevice and food has always been good, never disappointing.

The only complaint I have, and the reason for taking away one star, is the bed has always been very hard. I tell people when I get home that the beds really feel almost like a board. I know that sounds bad but the mattresses are VERY FIRM. All of the times I have stayed here the beds are all the same, no matter if it was a king, queen, or double. One nice thing is that you do have a choice of pillows, about 5 different varieties.

Overall this is a nice hotel and great for a busines traveler. The internet access is pretty good and I have had very few instances of being disconnected. It is a little slow at times but overall the connection is not too bad.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I began staying at this hotel at the recommendation of a vendor 5 to 7 years ago. Large clean rooms, across the street from the subway station, 15 minute ride to the exhibition hall and a very short cab ride to downtown Panyu, Not a hot spot for the night life but only a short cab ride to the bar districts. Most of the staff speaks passable english and they do offer cook to order breakfast. There are a couple of cafes in the same building.

Good hotel with standard service for Guangzhou. My room was spacious and clean, with standard furniture, no wi-fi in the room only cable connection to the net for free. Staff is polite and helpful and always smiling and asking if you need help.
Breakfast buffet is also ok. Choice is not so big and various like other hotels in Guangzhou area. Company rate a little bit higher than other hotels in the city with same level. Spa service are also ok.
All in all a good hotel value for money, but nothing special to be remember or reported.

Stayed one night at 30June for going to Chimelong park.

The hotel itself is nice. Check in is speedy. Room is spacious and clean.
One funny thing is that they have a sauna room inside the bathroom, however it is charging.
Only problem with the room is there are no windows!
Offers free internet but no wifi(Lobby have wifi tho). This is when your wifi router comes in handy.

The subway station is right in front of the hotel. Only two stations to Chimelong park. Excellent.

Not expensive at all if you compare it to Chimelong park hotel.

The Japanese buffet(lunch) is nice. One of the best I had in China.
Cant comment on breakfast cause I didn't ate it.

Would recommend if anyone is trying to find a hotel for going to Chimelong.
