Reviewed September 23, 2013

This hotel is located in TianHu aread and very close to Guangzhou east station.
It takes 5mins from/to the station. If you go to Shenzhen, there is the direct line from
this station to Shenzhen Lohe station.
The price is around RMB320.00/single room. It is cheap if you think about the convenience
when you use the station. However, the room has the smell of mold. Although I stayed some
rooms, I felt all rooms has the mold's smell. It is one point I can not accept.
Other things are ok.

stayed in this hotel during my visit to trade fair.this is a good property and is well connected through metro/bus/taxi services.
all modern amenities are there and staff is courteous.Some problem in communication with house keeping staff as they do not know much english.but overall its a decent place to stay.

Been there in the from 19th to 23rd may-13. We traveled in a group, a package from a tour operator in India. Although we were around 60 strong the check in was fast and pleasant. They exchange currency at the reception, because the team was 60 strong and every on wanted RMB for their USD they limited the exchange to $500 per person. Good breakfast, they have lot of Chinese dishes, we had an option of Indian dishes too as were a group. The dinner was also at the hotel but arranged by the tour operator, so cant comment.
The hotel is just opposite the bus station and the railway station just behind the bus station. Good service, friendly people, although language is a problem, the staff tried their best to keep our stay pleasant. Yes the beds are Hard, but i think the people there prefer it that way. There is a jogging track on top of the bus station, you can see people going for their morning walk.
Best place to stay if you are on a budget.

Room Tip: ask for rooms facing the bus station.

Booked this hotel through a travel agent in Hong Kong, as a major trade fair in town meant many hotels were full and of course all the prices were doubled.
OK it is easy to find and near the shopping mall, but apart from that there is not much to recommend this hotel. Although I booked a non-smoking room with a double bed, they tried to put us in a smoking, single bed room. Once that was sorted the faults became apparent. A major one is the damp - your clothes and belongings; even newspapers become damp very quickly and there is no heating in the room to dry them out. The next problem is the bed, which as other reviewers mention is hard; so hard in fact that we thought of purchasing a topping mattress from IKEA across the road (another advantage). If you are staying here for a while, this would be a requirement. Oh, and we also had bites (bugs?).
Other points are relatively minor but annoying : no WiFi; dirty carpets; thin walls; curt eviction from breakfast room at 10am.
To end on a positive note, the junior staff were polite and courteous.

My god where do I start from the smell to the Skanky Massage girls to the mould gowing off the roof of the room we were staying in.
If you are into these things and also like a rock hard bed then this is the right hotel for you.
maybe backpackers but do not try to stay there while there is one of the ever increasing tradeshows going on or it will cost you $300US.
I threntened the management if they did not move me and the mould on the ceiling gave me a disease then I would report them to the World Health organisation.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!! Anywhere else

ROOMS
Small, dirty, dingy, old school furnishings. Room smells musty and moldy.

LOCATION
5 minute walk from the GZ East Railway Station.
Many restaurant and shopping options outside.

PRICE / OVERALL VALUE
Price is ok, but make this your last choice if you are looking for hotels near the GZ East Railway Station.

Star Hotel is very conveniently located near the Guangzhou Railway station near to tianhe belu.
As per their tariff, rooms are very good in size and cleanliness. Staff is very cooperative, services are very good. I have some great golden memories associated with this hotel and because of that it will always remain my favorite hotel in town...:)..
Keep it up...!!!
