“Well located for shopping and eating!”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Situated about 8 minutes walk from the Macau border, the Guotai Hotel is a 4 star property situated across the street from a huge underground shopping mall. Right outside the main door is restaurant row with a whole range of places to tuck into ranging from Chinese restaurants to KFC and the ubiquitous McD.

The rooms are adequately spacious and comfortable. The front office staff are not fully comfortable with English so use the concierge or bell boy to assist. Around the world, the concierges or bell boys are the most multi-lingual!

The front office staffs were generally very helpful and polite especially Mr. Andy Xiao the front office manager. He was the one reason I did not graded this Hotel Horrible.
English is not a frequent language used there and with this type of hotel in Zhu Hai it is not expected.
Room seems to be renovated and updated but not brand new. Room size is good size for Asian hotel rooms. Shower area is very good and water pressure is great. Room rate generally included breakfast but even if it doesn’t, it would be O.K. there is a big Macdonald across the street and a Starbuck about 5 mins walk from the hotel. Breakfast is on set menu. Location wise, if you are looking for barging clothing and hand bags, then it is only 7 mins to the largest underground shopping arcade in ZhuHai. You can literally spend the whole day there. Food wise, there are lots of eateries around and fruits stalls around the corner.

Now the bad:

We booked two non smoking rooms. One room was perfectly fine but the other room was stinking with strong cigarette smoke even through we were on the non smoking room on non smoking floor. This seems to be the problem even with Big name chain hotels.

In the good room, everything is fine and bedding and lighting were both good. But, in the bad room, things just could not get any worst. I was woken up in the middle of the night by my daughter because she was so itchy and her face was swollen up from some insect bites. Obviously something is biting her and had an allergic reaction from her bites. I also got a few bite marks on my arms. We had to move into the other room with my little daughter and Daddy for the rest of that night.

Although location wise it is convenient but the noise from those taxi honking can be noisy at times.

I can’t say I would want to stay again here because of my bed experience but then if we were assigned a good room like the other room then it would not have been so bad.

I actually live in Macau, for six years now, but I do enjoy popping over to Zhuhai just to bum around for a while, massage, shopping, walking and exploring... I always fancied this 'mini-Wynn' looking hotel and must admit it did not disappoint. Check-in, speedy and very hospitable, the room, very spacious, clean and all the mod cons you could need. Comfortable bed, shower no bath tub, but I think in this day and age who does really take a bath anymore...

An excellent hotel, with an excellent stay for me. A full restaraunt down stairs, and also a huge internet cafe, the spa isn't half bad either...

Walking distance to Macau (5-7mins), shops every where, newly opened McCafe, Pizza Hut & Starbucks all close by too if you prefer you're western foods.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Any room at all... a really great stay.

For the price I paid, I would said it's a decent room. The room is spacious with modern design. However, if you look closely at the furnishings, it's made of cheap materials. But I wouldn't complaint for the price I paid. The bellboy was very helpful, he gave us very good information as where to shop and eat. But you need to speak in Mandarin or Cantonese in order to communicate with the staffs in the hotel.

The location is fantastic, just 5 minutes walk to Gongbei Underground Mall. And it's extremely near to KFC, McDonalds and Vanguard (a huge hypermarket).

Hotel is close proximity to Gongbei Border, 5-minutes walk to the shopping/immigration complex. There is a KFC to the left of the hotel entrance, Vanguard supermarket opposite (good choices), and also McDonalds opposite the hotel.

Rooms were good - clean, nicely decorated, modern toilets that do not stink. No non-smoking level even though we ordered a non-smoking room, but the house-keeping tried their best to deodorise the leftover smoke odour.

Rooms came with PC and free internet connection. No wifi in the rooms, and cannot use your own computer; only available wifi is in the lobby area (for free).

Breakfast is too simple - juices were cordial (not real juice), milk tastes artificial, ... no american/western style breakfast. By Chinese standard, food is also limited. They charge full price even for kids (not half price) for poor food. Cheaper to cross the road and get a McDonalds breakfast.

Room Tip: Skip hotel breakfast, and get a McDonalds breakfast to avoid disappointment.

Great location with lots of shopping in nearby Gongbei & restaurants serving all kinds of food. My personal preference is seafood which is really fresh & affordable compare to my hometown. This place also has alot of Massage centres for couples who wants to be together in a room after a tired day of shoppings & walking.
The hotel room is very clean & spacious. The only Minus point - They don have Non Smoking room! Even our request for a Non smoking room, upon check in, the room still smell of the smoke even after the staff has spray the air fresher.
