“A good stay for the weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We live in Guangzhou and were looking for a nice 'stay-cation' for a weekend. The location is great! So many bars and restaurants to choose from, right outside. The rooms do look old, but the hotel is old as well. Not to say they were bad, they were just not 'shiny and new' The staff were very pleasant. The pool was lovely. The revolving restaurant puts on a very good spread. My only complaint was that we were smokers, and it was difficult to convince them that we were just going down and outside to enjoy a smoke. Being that you are allowed to smoke in the rooms, I would have thought there would be a section of the eating area for that too. But, overall, a very lovely weekend. Thanks.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Tripadvisor.

We regretted to learn that the room was not able to meet your expectation. For your easy reference, we have the Deluxe Room and Executive Room are more spacious (64㎡) with an elegant design, exceptional facilities and superior amenities, which are more suitable for you.

For smoking, basically, it is prohibited in public indoor area in China. In considering needs from customer, we do provide outdoor tables at The Cascade Café plus a lobby Tavern Bar which have its own ventilation system.

Last but not the least, we apologize for any inconvenience caused and we look forward to serving you again.


Yours Sincerely

Very comfortable, home away from home hotel.
Rooms were large and comfortable bed, where one is guaranteed a sound sleep.
Bathrooms were a good size and very clean.
Service was excellent and staff make a good effort to see you are looked after.
Ideally located with a good choice of international restaurants just around the block, left side coming out of the hotel entrance.
Good choice of food and nice breakfast selection, good cross section of western and Asian breakfast so all covered.

Room Tip: Request a non smoking if you don't smoke as the smoking rooms are quite bad..

The Garden Hotel was wonderful. We had a suite with all the amenities. The breakfast buffet was delicious! The garden area was very nice.

Our suite had two thermostats: one in living area and one in bedroom area. This allowed the bedroom area to be cooler in the evening. The rooms were very modern and user friendly.

The staff of the hotel took total care of us.

I would go there again and again!

Room Tip: We were on the 15th floor. Very quiet and comfortable.

Dinner at the Cascade restaurant is ridiculously expensive. Kids meal for 138 RMB for a small hot dog, corn chowder, and frost bitten ice cream? Would recommend not eating at the hotel except for breakfast buffet which is very good. A/C had issues keeping up with the humidity and the WiFi is extremely slow and unreliable whether in the room or lobby. Wired connection is much better. Probably among the best staff outside of Disney owned hotels at Disney World.

This Hotel was amazing. I was incredibly beautiful, the lobby is an experience of its own. The rooms are really nice and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent they had everything you could want from Chinese to Western foods. And the view from the restaurant is an incredible garden with 2 large waterfalls beautiful pools and trees, an oasis in the middle of a big city. The service was excellent everyone went beyond the call for us.I highly recommend this hotel. It was also try clean.

Room Tip: We were there for an adoption so we had no choice of our rooms we had 3 room located on various side...

The room was much better than previous reviewers had stated. We had two adults and two small children. No charge for a crib for our youngest child.

Since it was raining most of the week we were there,didn't see much of the neighborhood. The breakfast buffet was adequate.

Although it was off the beatan path, did enjoy going to a chinese market for food and clothing.

The restaurants in the neighborhood were good. I liked having a 7 Eleven across from the hotel.

The nearby park was nice and our children enjoyed the playground.

Yes I would stay there again
