Hotel Canton
Ranked #48 of 3,475 Hotels in Guangzhou
Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

We paid about 478 yuan per night w/o breakfast. The staff speaks mainly mandarin & being a Singaporean I speak it fluently too. But I noticed that I got more response when I made my requests 1st in English then follow up with mandarin. The house keeping crew was very efficient, the room was promptly cleaned, slippers & bath robes were replaced daily. The room service was also good. The orders arrived within half hour. I hardly see anybody using the large swimming pool or the health centre. There are 2 entrances to the hotel. The one on level 2 leads to the famous Beijing Lu shopping zone. And the other opens to convenient shops that sells bottled water and phone cards. You can buy a China phone card and also top up the card with a compatible card starting with 17969 or 17909 to make cheap international calls. The shop keepers will usually activate these cards for you upon request. Shopping on Beijing Lu can be a little more expensive then 上下九
Or One Link whole sale centre. There's so much to do in GZ. The hotel is a good place as most shopping areas are not very far from there.

Room was a bit old but maintained pretty well. It was clean and spacious. The bed was comfy too. Free internet was great for my business trip.

Service was good considering their english is not great. They tried their best to understand and serve you well.

Great location as all you need to do is walk around 3 minutes to get to the beginning of beijing rd that is full with shops. Even though it's close to the busy area, the noise from the street did not disturb the hotel at all. The room is big, comfy bed and ok bathrooms.

The bellboy also was very helpfull in finding taxi and explaining the taxi driver about your destination.

overall i'm very satisfied with this hotel considering the price is cheap too.

The hotel is located very close to pedestrian street, a prominent shopping area of Guangzhou. Hiring a public taxi can be a bit difficult. Eating could be an issue for any indian around the vacinity of the hotel. Otherwise hotel is nice and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Look for a smoke free floor. Stay above 15th floor for a nice view.

This is not a bad hotel, but it does feel a little old. It has a large, but shallow, swimming pool; a health centre whose offerings are somewhat different from those specified in the leaflet in guest rooms(!), somewhat musty rooms (second hand smoke??), ... It claims to be 4 star, but 3 would be more accurate. Location is good - near to the Beijing Lu night markets.

Went with my colleagues for a weekend shopping trip and choose this hotel based on friend's recommendation.

The hotel is actually not at Beijing road through its address indicated so. Nonetheless it is located some 3 mins walk from Beijing road so it's pretty convenient if proximity to Beijing road is needed. It's also pretty closed to the subway which is only about some 5 minutes stroll away.

We booked an executive suite and it's spacious. Room looks a little dated but what we really appreciate is the PC and the Internet availability in our room.

Will recommend one to stay for the convenience of location.

I booked this hotel on Orbitz.com. I was charged twice for the reservation. When I got to the hotel I was told that I would receive a refund on my credit card. This did not happen. When I contacted Orbitz I was told that the hotel had refused to refund the money. I was a solo traveler and I had booked a room and checked in. However I was charged twice and neither the hotel nor Orbitz were prepared to make the refund. STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL AND FROM ORBITZ.COM. I feel that they are liars and thieves!

Room Tip: There are lots of good hotels in GZ. Choose any one except this one!!!

stayed for 3nights in twin sharing room,

PRO :-
1. Security (especially for lady traveller) because they had 1staff on duty on every floor from night to morning,
2. spacious room
3. 5 ~ 8 mins walk to Beijing Road for shopping
4. the breakfast, many variety and good

CON :-
1. Housekeeping not up to standard, we found tissue papers on the floor and water bottle on the side table after checking in. We left the tissue papers where it was and the next day, it was still on the floor.
2. Even thought it is near Beijing Road, the return from Beijing road back to hotel, have to climb up the slope which was tiring especially after a whole day of walking/shopping (and carrying many shopping victory)
3. 15mins walk to Subway train/MRT/MTR/Metro

overall, it is OK but nothing outstanding
