This is a 'wine concept' hotel. It seems to be owned and managed by a wine group. So...well...a bit of wine is its selling point.
That's why when they put me to a smoking room and promised to do some 'de-smoke' treatment, they sent a lady staff and simply removed the ashtray on my table and pushed a bottle of wine into my arms. This is the most amazing non-smoking treatment I have seen in my life. I stood there not knowing how to react. Even until today I'd consider it as a fun experience.
The hotel room is quite OK. Location-wise, it's right opposite the Ouzhuang Subway station, but you cannot just walk across the road. A bit detour is needed. The road in front of the hotel is a semi-closed highway, so hailing a taxi can be difficult sometimes, but the staff are often willing to help.
There are not many shops or restaurants around. Several Chinese fast food chains are there that's true. You really need to leave that community to get the real taste of Guangzhou.
The breakfast is ... average (shall I say disappointing?)
