Room: The room was large and the bed was very comfortable by UK standards, never mind Chinese! As were the pillows. The bathroom is large and nicely laid out. The double bath is big enough to lie out in.
Facilities: The hotel was built 2009 and is incredibly clean. There is a nice bar with reasonably priced drinks, the breakfast choice covered Western and Chinese and was very good. We did not try the restaurant in the evening, but if breakfast was anything to go by, it would be good. There is an outdoor swimming pool which is a fountain when not being used and a very good gym. The gardens are very pretty, well landscaped with interesting art and water features. Only downside is no free Wi-fi in the room, you have to sit in the bar.
Location: This hotel is not situated in central Guangzhou but in a more business/industrial area of the City. It is approximately 30 mins to the City Centre and 45mins to the Airport. It is absolutely worth the cost of taxis. Just make sure you either have a map or the hotel phone number as some taxis did not seem to know where it is.
Basically this hotel is luxurious and incredibly well designed and coupled with the staff who are very helpful and can speak English, we cannot recommend this highly enough.
Even better news is that they are building a more central hotel. I hope it is as good.
We will return here for a weekend away whenever we can.
