I came back from Guangzhou a few days a go and impelled to write this review as I have a lot to say, both good and bad. The good aspect of it is that it is close to Beijing Road and the shopping and night life is great there. Beijing road is closed off so no traffic you can move around without having to worry about cars for a period of time. It is only a 15 to 30 yuan far from everything so it is very convenient. The hotel room is spacious and good (got the standard room + breakfast) for above average budget travelers but never forget to ask for a non smoking room when you book your room (I don't know if they have any) as we encountered quite a nightmare on our last night as the smokes were coming from the ventilators and we inhaled it who knows up until what time in the morning. We don't like complaining and it was night time so we lived with it. The buffet breakfast was fit for a king serving both Chinese and Western food and was given a free buffet dinner voucher for one person every night of our stay. There was a section where a chef fries the egg of your choice which was quite good. The buffet dinner was also good where you had the option of asking the chef to cook the meat of your choice as well such as steak, pork etc..... Customer service was pretty good as well and they sure treated you with respect compared to the customer service you would receive outside of the hotel. Now, the bad part is that there is no rule for smokers. The breakfast area was a non smoking area (I know this cause there were no smoking signs) but there were diners puffing away and nobody dared to go and talk to them. I even saw a waitress offering an ashtray to the person. The mini bar or fridge was not set up and was very old however, that wasn't a problem. There are two entrances to the hotel and make sure that you tell the taxi driver Guangzhou Ta Xia instead of Guangzhou Fandian (the direct translation of the hotel) as the taxi driver said that he hadn't heard of the latter hotel so dropped us at the start of Beijing Road and we had to carry our luggage's (because it is closed off to cars) to the other end of Beijing Road where the hotel is located.
