“Perfect for canton fair”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

I spent few hours on searching hotel for my business trip. As it was during canton fair the prices were very high. I decided to go on the president and it was great decision. Yes the price was high but that normal as it was the fair time. We arrived and received the room. We then go up and found the wifi is not working. As it extremely important for us we contacted the reception and they sent someone with two keys and we moved to different room where the wife was great(even for video). The hotel has 3 shuttles every morning to fair which take 15 min and also offer 3 shuttle afternoon which take 20min. Once we came to the bus after long day at the fair they waited with minimal water which was great but the peak was once we arrived to hotel they waited with free drinks, nuts etc . It was great extra. The hotel location is good. First it about 2 min to metro. Second it in IT area. You have one IT mall on the left and another wholesale mall which is absolutely great for anyone looking for cheap IT components. Overall I really recommend this hotel and will book it again next time.

I have stayed here twice, as the location of this hotel is close to my agents office. Generally the location is close to IT markets, malls and metro. The rooms are acceptable, my room overlooked shabby run down area. Hotel will not accept US$

1. Fungus / Black Mold on Shower Curtain and at around corner of shower room. Disgusting! Even though, hotel change room for us but still black mold on most of the room. Really need to clean and change them up asap!!!

2. Pillow is too soft / too low. Need to have high pillow for side-sleeper.

3. Wifi in room is not workable!!! #1618

4. Good that hotel have Fair Shuttle bus!

Room Tip: 1. Avoid No window room. 2. B building is more quiet and newer than A building.

Stayed 5 nigghts here for April Canton Fair. Have a better opinión then my stay here last time. Excellent location in Tianhe, 5 mins walk from Metro. Great shuttle bus service to fair everyday. Decent breakfast buffet and the orange juice wasn´t so watered down this time! Can be hard to get a table at busy periods for breakfast. Stayed in executive room which is a lot bigger than regular room and not much more expensive, very clean and comfortable. Complimentary english newspaper, fruit and drinks everyday left in room. Staff very friendly if English can be a bit limited, bar staff didn´t know what a GIn Tonic was even though it is on the bar menú - could order a Gin on its own and a Tonic wáter on its own though!!!!!

Room Tip: pay the extra for executive room

Well, the location is quite central and close to the IT malls but people barely speak english.
It is accessible and close to public transportation.
The building and lobby look grandiose.
Booked an executive room but could never figure out what the difference would have been with a regular room. No indication, or sign of room type, they might as well have given me a superior room, i can not compare!
We were on floor 12, so no noise from the club!
I must sy that i did not like this hotel as the carpet was very smelly and humide in the corridors as well as in the rooms.
Furniture tearing down, smelling bathroom ,odor coming from sink, the shower curtain ery old and should be replaced.
The room was big compared to hong kong , a decent size, actually big, tv, and no wifi!,
I would not go back but if you dont really mind these small details, it is a good price, paid about 69usd a night .
Next time, i would try to upgrade and go to the westin or sheraton, dont know what to expect thought!

The hotel is located in the electronics market in the Tianhe district. It is a 10 min taxi ride away from the Pazhou exhibition centre which happens to be the largest in the world.

The hotel was clean and well located. However, the staff could barely communicate in English even at the reception. Usually, I prefer to stay in an international chain hotel in China which makes communication easier. This hotel came at a good value while the international chain hotels were very expensive during fair time.

Taxi is easily available right outside the hotel. There are also many chinese eating options around the hotel. Mcdonalds is right next door to the hotel.

The hotel room walls are very thin. Everytime someone would knock on some other door, I would go to check who's knocking on my door.

It is about 40 mins away from the airport and right next to the metro station. This area does not see too many non chinese.

We were in Guangzhou for an overnight stay. We managed to check in early without any hastles at all and the desk staff spoke enough english to get by (rare in GZH). Overall we found this hotel very pleasing - the beds were large and comfortable and the bathrooms clean. You are able to hear the faintest noise from the traffic below (we were on the 12th floor) but nothing to keep one up at night. If you stay on the 5th floor you will be near the nightclub stationed on floors 7, 8 and 9 (Tower A) and may find it harder to fall asleep on any given Fri or Sat night due to the music...

The hotel is situated right above Guangzhou's electronics market - gadget heaven! Also just up the road, approx 1km in Grand View Mall and T-Mall. Very convenient.

We made our booking last minute on an internet hotel booking site and wow, what an absolute bargain at the price. Happy customer.

Room Tip: Avoid floors 5, 6 and 9, 10 in tower 'A' which are close to the hotel night club
