“Good Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The hotel is very good, brand new and business oriented, the bed is really good as well, nice internet access, the food however is so so, everything is brand new, however still lacks of the activity that for example has the Swissotel, so the enviroment is very boring at times, I have to go to China (Foshan) quite often and always stay at the Swissotel.

This is a very nice hotel if you don't mind to not have a Spa or having to walk to have a very nice meal.

Room Tip: try to get the room as high as possible in the Hotel.

Booked this hotel during the Chinese New Year and was quite surprise to have a special rate so I decided to give it a try. Stayed for two nights with my family, the crib they provided was quite good quality, and it was better than the one provided at Sofitel Guangzhou during my previous trip. The hotel is new and situated in the very center of Foshan also part of Lingnan Tiandi, a new hip shopping and relaxing place to hang out.
Hotel rooms are not that spacious, but enough for a everyday businessman or for leisure, deluxe or luxury rooms may be better but it's pricey. Every room has it's own balcony, and only two type of views available, one facing Lingnan Tiandi, the other facing the main road with busy traffic.
The hotel has an indoor heated swimming pool of 29 degrees Celsius, the pool is only opened to hotel guests, I did try out the pool, that day was like 12 degrees outside which feels like freezing in Foshan, and the indoor pool is quite warm, with heated air conditions on, the water feels cold, but it'll be better after a few laps.
Overall experience is good at the hotel, the staffs are all friendly and well trained, the parking is huge but the only downside is that the underground parking is shared with Lingnan Tiandi, during public holidays, parkings will not be enough.

Tip: Even room numbers all face Lingnan Tiandi, odd numbers face the road

Tried this hotel inspite of friends saying food was poor. Buffet offered Western
soup which had little taste other than flour and exces sugar, probably the worst offering in
hotel history. A French chef surprisingly appeared and said the soup was okay and that
the obviously rock hard packet sliced bread was not stale. This "French" chef must have been a Belgian taxi driver as he knew nothing about food. I will not return and cannot understand how any kitchen anywhere can produce such disgusting poor food let alone a so called five star hotel.

Room Tip: Go to the nearby Swiss hotel it has been consistently reasonable since it opened and has always se...

Timothy L, General Manager at Marco Polo Lingnan Tiandi Foshan, responded to this review, September 29, 2012
We thank all customers for their feedback, both good and bad, as this is a barometer for the way we are perceived. In this case the overall sentiment is somewhat different to the majority of our regular customers who keep our restaurant busy. Cafe Marco was recently awarded one of the top ten hotel restaurants in Guangdong province by Urbanotomy Magazine. But don't just take my word for it, we ask you all to be the judges. Visit Cafe Marco and decide for yourselves! Everyone is welcome.
