Had a good deal of room with breakfast as the company also booked a venue for our training. Travelled from Hong Kong to Guangzhou East station via train and got on their free shuttle, a 30 minutes ride got me to the hotel, there was no bell helping me with the luggage, and although there were people occupying at the front desk counter, once the receptionists finished helping the guest in front they never looked up and see who's next, therefore a couple of Korean guests and myself stood in the lobby looking like idiots. There were people jumping queues and just jammed in the counter and the receptionists did actually served them instead of those were in line! Finally after 5 minutes or so someone noticed us and led us to the concierge counter for registration.
Had a room nearly at the far end of the building (initially got into the wrong elevator, took me 2 minutes to reach my room because i was at the wrong building!)
Room is of great size at 45 square meter, with a massive balcony, free and fast wi-fi service, a printer equipped in the room, a very comfy king size bed, although housekeeping needs to pay attention to the cleanliness as there were feathers (from the pillows) on the floor and the Ihome clock was not synced properly.
It's no where near the downtown area so plan ahead if you decided to leave the hotel premises. Even if you are willing to hire a taxi it is not easy at all because there's no standbys, plan ahead to catch their shuttle service although it runs only every 2 hours or so.
Great meeting room facilities and we had a successful one as well.
At check out the receptionist didn't check the bill before presenting to me, I was actually looking at another guests' bill and I was shocked because of the huge sum of balance in front of me! Be aware of your privacy!
