“Great Location, clean and tidy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

Great loaction being close to MTR and Railway Station. The rooms are clean and tidy. The breakfast had good European options. The wireless internet was fast and reliable.While the executive floor was worth the extra the lounge lacked some features that other executive lounges offer. Staff were friendly and English speaking was not an issue.

This nice-looking hotel offers a very good breakfast but it falls short in several basic areas:

1. The thermostat in my room was not functional. The room felt warm and stuffy during the entire stay.
2. The front desk staff was not knowledgeable as it had no idea when breakfast started.
3. The fitness room did not open on time. I had to go to the front desk (15 minutes past the posted opening time) to request for the fitness room to be opened.
4. No wireless internet.
5. Thin walls that let you hear your neighbors and people in the hallway.

For a much better experience at comparable prices, visit nearby properties like the Hilton or the Westin.

I stayed there for two nights and got upgraded to Executive Room. The room was nice, clean and quite big. The only downside was the bed. It was hard. The internet and wifi were free and fast. The thing I like most was the breakfast. It was delicious and had many variety from western to eastern food. The hotel was proximity to train station (To Hong Kong) and MTR within city. Just walk to the right from the lobby and you will reach it less than 5 minutes walk. I will be back.

They have made an apparent mistake with hotel design. Despite the fact that hotel is relatively new, furniture and interior décor was made of wood that resembles more of something old and well used. Combining that with minimalist style, I think is complete disaster. I didn’t liked it whatsoever. Certainly, hotel does not deserve five star rating, even four is highly questionable.

The hotel is located in heart of city, there is near the Railway station (Guagzhou East) and underground railway that connecting to other cities and town center. There are surrounded by many restaurants and shopping mall. There is nice decoration and facilities. Free wi - fi connection is provided. However, the view from the room is not very good because there is construction site beside. In conclusion, the c/p value of the hotel is very high.

First time I tried this hotel. Chose it as I needed to hit the ground running after a morning arrival at Guangzhou East Railway Station ex Hong Kong. As the hotel is located across the road from the station (literally two minutes walk), it was ideal to drop baggage and immediately set about business meetings in the city. There was no problem checking in late morning. The hotel is fairly a no-frills standard but is clean and surprisingly quiet (given its location adjacent to the railway). I didn't dine at the hotel, but my colleagues advise the breakfast is acceptable. The tariff available on the internet makes this hotel extremely good value for money. There is a subway station across the road which will get you to virtually anywhere in Guangzhou. Just along the street there's an ATM, 7/11 and other facilities while in the shopping centre across the road there is a Jusco supermarket. Concierge is polite and helpful. No complaints!

We stayed at this hotel to welcome Lunar New Year 2012. This hotel is in a very convenient location; just 2 mins walk from subway station (to travel around the city) and Ktt train station (to travel to Hong Kong). We stayed on the executive floor and enjoyed the plaza view, so we also had a nice surprise in the evening - enjoyed huge and beautiful fireworks when staying comfortably in the room at midnight. Quality of the amenities was a nice surprise, even the toothbrush was better than what other 5-star hotels could offer. However, the Gallery on the executive floor was closed during the period of our stay so we needed to go to 2nd floor for breakfast (lucky the breakfast was good but the chef couldn't make the sunny-side-up my friend wanted). Also the central heating was far too warm so we ended up swearing in the middle of night. Anyhow, if we are going to Guangzhou again, this hotel will be one of our choices.

Room Tip: Do remember to ask for a plaza-view room on higher floor so you can enjoy good views.
