stayed during the canton fair season, where hotel prices are rocket hight. it is next to Marriott Hotel, at the side of Grandview Mall. (same building)
only good thing - location. above train station line 1 and 10 mins walk from line 3 (TianHe Mall) basically, shopping malls are all around the area but only 2 is worth the time. Grandview Mall is good to shop, the other is Taikoo Hui Mall. There is a stretch of shops and eateries busting with life at night where the locals go after malls are close, it's interesting to visit.
bad things - not for elders nor young children - changing of lift at level 23 every time you go in and out of the apartment, walking up and down the stairs between the bedroom/shower and living room/kitchen might be too troublesome for them.
not ideal for non chinese speaking - the TV channels are all local, and streaming at a very slow pace (it's from internet cable)
fridge microwave ok. not much utensils tho. bathroom kinda small esp when the door is opening inwards. the room allows people to smoke.
we found a pair of woman's stockings on the sofa (!!!!) on our arrival and the tv and phone not working so i had to stomp into the front desk but damage control was done fast and shift. wanted to tip the manager but he rejected - a plus point for me.
I am sure there are better hotels with the same rate during the non peak season. or be prepared to pay more for a better stay in GZ in the prime area like this one.
