During our travels in China, we found that a lot of cities have a bit of a gulf between their hotel choices. You can stay either in a filthy, smoke infested, dingy, smelly room with spit marks down the wall, or you can stay in a 4 star hotel. The Trade Point is close enough to the latter.
This seemed to be the case with Guiyang. This hotel we chose on location and we weren’t disappointed. It could have been cheaper, but we still felt that we go what we paid for. The bathroom light didn’t work, but that was fixed soon enough. We actually arranged an airport pickup through the hotel and that was efficient and done with a nice car. The windows in the room could use a clean on the outside, but I didn’t see any winch or basket and being a pretty tall building, I don’t know how else they would clean them.
Overall, it’s not the most exciting hotel, but it does the job and it’s in the middle of everything which is always good. There seemed to be usually at least one person who spoke decent English available on staff and they seemed genuinely keen to help. The only odd moment was when we asked to change money. They said “sorry, we can’t change money, because we use Bank Of China to provide this service and Bank Of China is closed today.” So, we asked where we should change money and they suggested the Bank Of China around the corner, which strangely, was open.
I would recommend this hotel and I would recommend Guiyang also. If we had more time, I would have liked to explore it more. The populace seemed pretty chearful and the city seemed to have some soul to it. If you turn left coming out of the hotel, then walk two blocks and take a right, you will find a food market at night-time which did us nicely for a meal.
