While not an upper-star property we were surprised by how happy we were with our stay at the Ascott. We were very lucky to be upgraded from a one-bed to two-bed apartment (thank you very much!) and while some of the furnishings are a bit dated and it could possibly do with a bit of a revamp here and there, for the cost it was terrific. It was clean, with great amenities (washing machine etc.), the bathroom was relatively modern and bright, and a cozy bed.
Many of the major hotels could learn something from the efficiency and friendliness of the staff here, particularly in reception and housekeeping. We were visiting for a trade show and the organisation with respect to the shuttle buses, to handing out a newspaper and bottle of water as you stepped aboard - all included in the price of your stay - was exceptional and made travelling to the show a pleasure.
Breakfast was fine enough although they do have a funny system with only offering one breakfast inclusive in the rate (even if yo book a double) but it's cheap enough so didn't matter. As noted by other reviewers, it is in a brilliant location, close to shops, great restaurants and the subway.
Our only complaint would be that the aircon in our room was faulty, it either blew full-blast at top speed - noisy, freezing and like a gale force wind, or not at all. And the elevators are a tad slow during peak times. However, we wouldn't hesitate to stay at Ascott Guangzhou in the future.
