“buying trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We couldn't decide whether to stay in the same hotel which we stayed at before or to find another hotel, after looking through every site and reviews we finally decided to book. I was actually glad that I read all the reviews about this hotel cause the lobby is in the 3rd floor, and there are a few steps before you reach the first floor but the doorman is very alert and always wiling to lend a hand so it,s ok. But it was really hard to converse with them cause they dont really know how to speak in english. Room was clean as expected, hotel was quiet, i love how spacious the room is, and how fast their wifi. But the only downside is that there's no fastfood nearby or mall. The mrt is in walking distance like 5minutes away, but there's not much people , too quiet for me, not like bejing lu where all the happening is. It's also quite far from the wholesale shopping malls. BUT service was great, they are very helpful though they are really struggling to understand english. When you ask for something they do it right away not like in other hotels where it takes time to get something done.

Room Tip: request for a room facing the road, to see if it's raining or not

Nice clean hotel bonus bottle of wine, Near Ouzhuang station, surprised they did not have a Chinese restaurant but they had all intercontinental restaurant. Most staff spoke English and were polite and helpful
breakfast is good and wifi is free and fast. well sized room. bathroom is clean too and upper floors have no noise but dont know if there is noise on lower levels.
Enjoyed my stay in this hotel

Hi,
I lived in Guangzhou for two years, and I went back to visit and stayed here for a week. While some web sites rated it 4 stars, I wouldn't go that far, but it's certainly not a lousy or dirty place to stay.
Here are some comments related to different aspects.
Enjoy!!
Alex

Location and Accessibility
Taxi drivers aren't familiar with the place. (出租车司机不知道关于这家酒店)

The hotel card (and card jacket), does't have the hotel address or a map.

It's difficult to reach by car/taxi. It sits on an access road off a
main road, but it's tricky to reach.

The subway exit right next to the hotel is closed, so you have to walk
across a busy street to get to the subway (Metro). As another reviewer put it, it's just inconvenient.

Restaurant:
The coffee is terrible (咖啡是可怕的)

The orange juice is watered down.

There is a wine store in the hotel, but no bar.

There is no bar within walking distance.

Service:
The laundry service is too expensive. 30 RMB to clean one shirt. This is a total rip-off.

The hotel WiFi is just so so. You can not use the WiFi in the hotel restaurant. How lousy, when you go to breakfast and want to relax and look at emails, but you can't.

I stayed alone in a twin room in this hotel in late July 2013 for two nights.

The hotel is strategically located next to the Ouzhuang metro station, but despite this, getting to and from it is surprisingly inconvenient. The entrance is located slightly higher than street level, so like in many places in China, you will have to carry your luggage up the stairs or go a long way around. The nearest metro entrance (A) was closed during my stay (and there is no information on when/if it will open), so at least for now you will have to go to entrance C which is located farther including having to cross a dangerous road. Crossing the main road, by the way, is nearly impossible and you will have to walk about 10–15 minutes to get to the same place on the other side. The area of the hotel is also quite boring and you will have to use transportation to get to the interesting places in Guangzhou.

The room was also disappointing, although to be fair in the beginning there wasn't anything particularly wrong with it, it just felt overall cheap and not fitting of a 4-star hotel. They had free tea and slippers though, which is nice. Later there was a jam in the toilet so they had to come and fix it (as I understand, other reviewers had the same problem in different rooms—they should definitely fix the plumbing ASAP).

The reception/concierge is on the third floor which is actually pretty nice as you don't have to go through it each time you enter the hotel (although some may consider it a disadvantage). There is no storage room as far as I could tell, but if you want to store your luggage they will put it in the reception and keep an eye on it.(meh, even large hostels have storage rooms).

The thing that really saved this hotel from a poor/average rating was the ease of receiving service: this is the only hotel I've been to in China where there was always at least one staff member who was fluent in English. I mean actually fluent—not something you are likely to find in China, even in good hotels. I was even able to call the front desk on the phone and have a two-way conversation without coming down and explaining what I wanted with Google Translate on my phone.

The bathroom and room were very clean. The room were quiet. The beds were hard - like they usually are at local hotels. Wifi was free. It was a non-smoking room but it smelled like someone had smoked in it. The Ouzhang metro station is just across the road from the hotel but you have to cross the road under the flyover so it takes 5 minutes to walk there. There are 2 electronics shops, a convenience store, fruit shops and takeaway food available just 1 min's walk away. For more shopping and food, you can walk 10 minutes to the next train station, Taojin, where you'll find local shops along Jianshe 6th Road and a mall, Friendship Store, with shops (from high-end brand names).

Room Tip: Room that face away from the main road would be quiet.

It was a great hotel at Guangzhou. The room was clean and tidy. It's near the MRT, just opposite the MRT, you can walk to the MRT by foot. If you like to take a Taxi, you can get it easily. It's a good choice for travellers,

Location is just near Guangzhou MTR station "Ou Zhuang". Staff are helpful. Hotel room is clean and comfortable. Amenities are quite new. Shower room is spacious and the shower pressure is great! I've stayed in this hotel twice and would definitely stay here again next time in GZ.
