Guangzhou Bauhinia Hotel
Ranked #77 of 3,559 Hotels in Guangzhou
Reviewed July 20, 2012

It's reasonably close to the subway at Haizhu Square and that's about it. The area in which the hotel is located is largely commercial and lacking in character. Which brings me to the reception staff; in the 80s one might be accused of cultural imperialism, but the lack of very basic understanding of English can only disadvantage the hotel. At the time of writing, English is the language of commerce. Ergo, one would expect rudimentary understanding in the staff of a business hotel. The more significant difficulty in communicating with some of the reception staff is lack of warmth and hospitality. Some just don't want to be bothered. As a matter of basic etiquette, the elevator overseer needs to be advised that if a guest is heading for the wrong lift, he probably shouldn't yell at them. And no, it ain't a quaint cultural quirk. The interior, windowless rooms are ideal for experiencing sensory deprivation, but claustrophobia is not for everyone. Also, you will hear everything that happens within a 20 metre radius of your room, at all hours. It seems to be the case in many Chinese hotel that basic staff training in hospitality is nowhere in evidence. So it is with The Bauhinia.

Room Tip: Good rooms can best be found elsewhere.

Nice stay. Room is ccomfortable for 2. we stayed at a standard room with windows. there is no fridge but there is safe deposit and toiletries. ( soap, conditioner, shampoo, lotion, comb, toothbrush/paste) tv is mostly local channels. if youre chinese, it has some good nice chinese channel. free wifi at lobby. service is good. the king size bed was superb. comfortable and the air con works excellent. it can get really cold quickly. u can go beijing road, zhanxi road, shang xian within few mins ,roughly 20rmb taxi ride. taxi fare from the airport to here was 100rmb + 15 rmb (toll) . when goin back it was 80rmb

Generally nice hotel with nice beds (super single) and individual room aircon system. Room is quite nice, and lift requires card access which is a + point for security.But the Executive room feels too small for 3 pax. Bathroom is nice with a huge shower stall. Hotel service was decent with all our requests made (extra pillow, extra blanket etc.) However, the additional bed was horrible; thin and uncomfortable (well, I guess most extra beds are like that...) Food choices are limited within walking distance and the nearest train station is about 20-30 minutes' walk. OneLink and the shoes wholesale area are within 5-10 minutes' walk, which is convenient (if it is not raining).

This is the place to stay if you want to be near wholesale shoes and accessories markets.
For Onelink (sell all accessories and brickbats) - just turn right out of hotel and walk straight down.
For shoes - a few shoes building right opposite Onelink, just cross the overhead bridge
Back to the hotel - for china standard, the hotel was fairly new, but after reading the good reviews here, i was rather disappointed.
For one thing, the htl accept extra bed for triple share, but despite paying for Executive room, the room was actually too small for 3 pax. we lived with bedside tables and chairs pushed to one side for 3 days.
The shower was nice, somes with a rain shower-like option and glass doors.
If you need to travel to airport, no need to book with hotel, just ask for their help to go to the road to flag. my cab cost 98rmb to the hotel. Cheap compared to hotel's 210rmb. But dont do this if you travel during peak hrs. YOu can hardly get a cab. My flight back was 1040am.
They also had free wifi at lobby.
Location wise, i find that it wasn't that great for a tourist, as its 10-15mins walk to MRT.
Hard to grab a cab during peak hrs. In fact almost impossible.
I would try to stay in a 5-star htl in tourist district next time.

Location is near shoes wholesales market. walking distance to Beijing Road. How to go by metro : Take B3 Exit from Haizhu Square metro station, then turn left to Da De Road, you will reach Jie Fang south road. My stay during Canton Fair, room price was over priced, normal are ok. My room was no window queen size bed, room was too small. bed was ok but i will prefer with window room.

I had a bad experience talking to front desk staffs during my checked-in. My purchased thru Agoda.com was no window(queen size bed). The front desk staffs gave me room key, when I bring all my heavy baggage to that room, It was SINGLE bed room. I had to bring my heavy baggage go down again to front desk, that front desk girl told me that was the room for my purchased and told me that bed can sleep 2 persons. I argued with them that was single bed. then the other front desk girl told me there is another room with double bed but very noise which is near machine. How could I accept this. then a manager walked by and arrange with different floor room with double bed room. my issue settled.

This case make me feel unhappy with that 2 front desk girl. Restaurant staffs are very nice and friendly.

I paid a small fortune to stay here during the Canton Fair April 2012 but that is to be expected. This place is really difficult for the taxis to find for some reason.
Notes:
1. Really, this is a 2 star hotel at best.
2. For the Fair, this is too far from the Pazhou Complex.
3. The Breakfast really sucks. Mostly Chinese food and even the Chinese did not seem impressed.
4. The staff were helpful.
5. The lift was a little scary as it sort of shudders when moving.
6. The Mini Bus driver for the fair in the mornings seems to have some sort of brain injury. You can tell he looses awareness of his surroundings from time to time.
7. The nice girls at the front desk told me not to use the ATM's at night (just outside the hotel) as there is too much crime. Of course Guangzhou is probably the most crime ridden city in China.

Room Tip: When you take a taxi, you MUST write down the number of the larger yuan bills you pass onto the driv...

We stayed at Baihinia Hotel Guangzhou at end of April 2012, our 2nd stay in this hotel. Executive room is very roomy and well equipped with a large bathroom and big shower, no tub, good water pressure. Clean, short wait for elevator, service is fine but far from HKG service standard, will make a big difference if they can train staff to smile. Free breakfast daily but limited in choices. Not a luxury hotel but far superior than local Chinese standard hotels, efficient and clean, great value. Relatively new hotel but the wallpaper in room and hallways are showing bad discoloring,

It is located in the wholesale district, very convenient for buyers, has boring neighborhood shops and few restaurants, a very large Cantonese restaurant on the 2nd and 3rd floor of this hotel which opens at 7AM. As with most areas in this big city, street and alley next to hotel is always busy, packed with people going to schools, works or homes. Hotel is not in easy walking distance to well known Beijing Road or Shanxiajiu street shopping areas, as some reviews claim, 10 yuan taxi ride. Walking to subway at Haizhou square is about 15 minutes.

Very easy to get a taxi in front of the hotel, as many people get off taxi there, this is important as it is often very difficult to get a taxi in Guangzhou.

I paid $109 a night on agoda, $500 for 4 days with taxes and service charges, when I arrived I discovered online the same room is $66 on agoda, Agoda refunded 40% $200 through its Best Price Guanranty. Good service.
