“Central value for money hotel.”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

I have stayed at the hotel in March 2013 during China Int Furniture Fair.

Location: Good central location in a busy area near Guangzhou's electronic markets. Entrance to hotel is a bit tucked in a back alley which may look a bid dodgy at first approach. Only 10 minutes by Taxi to Pazhou.

Rooms: Clean and HUGE bedrooms. Probably the biggest bedrooms I have yet seen in any Chinese hotel. Bedrooms are a little dated but very spacious. Bathrooms are EXCELLENT. Great water pressure in the shower. Air con does not really cool rooms down well. This however does seem to be quite a common problem in many other Chinese hotels using central air conditioners. . This wont be a problem for many people but I really like a cool room as humidity in China is usually quite high.

Food: Breakfast buffet is OK, not bad but not quite the selection you would expect from a 5-star establishment - but then the only Chinese hotels where you really get GREAT breakfast for westerners are your top 5-star hotels such as Sofitel / Westin etc. We did not eat other meals at the hotel. Within literally 5 minutes walk from McDonadls, Star Bucks, KFC and a Pizza Hut if we you want western food. Tip: If you are like us wanting to eat good (REAL) western food - take a 10min Taxi ride to 'Oggi's' - you can google the address.

Other: There is a massage/spa/sauna on one of the floors which is excellent. Free Wi-Fi was also great to have.

Overall service in the hotel was very good and staff friendly. Based on the price, location and overall quality and size of the room I would most definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for 2 nights and was given a free room upgrade to the suite. Room was v spacious and had a grand bathroom with bathtub. There is also a TV in the bathroom so u can watch tv while soaking in the tub. Excellent water pressure with hot water which was great in winter! Hotel is less than 10 min walk from Gang Ding MTR. However staffs were not v friendly at reception.

Royal Mediterranean was a located at a very good location, with a 5 minute walk to Onelink shopping center and about 10 minutes to Grandview Plaza. Wifi is also provided in this hotel. However, the only drawback was that they did not have a gym or swimming pool facility that they indicated on their website. When my friends and I got there, we were expecting a pool and a gym, but they told us it was "under renovation". Also, the walk back into the hotel could be a little unsafe at times as there are no streetlights on the road back into the hotel from the main road.

My friends and I got upgraded into an executive room (our room was not available when we wanted to check in, at around 2pm). The room was extremely spacious and clean, with a TV in the bathroom. However, they only gave us a queen sized bed and it was a little squeezy for 3 people to sleep in.

The service provided was average. The front desk staff were able to converse in decent english and they were polite and well-mannered. However, when we asked for someone to fix our TV (a few channels were not working), the staff that came were grumpy and unhelpful, and simply told us it could not be fixed.

Overall, one should book this hotel if you're looking for a hotel that is located in the heart of the city, with close walks to the various metro stations of Guangzhou (the nearest station being gangding station and shibanqiao station).

Room Tip: Remember to ask for a non-smoking room if you're bothered by smoke and a higher floor for a bett...

1. Dirty & smelly carpet
2. Lack of english communication
3. It's very old furniture and interior
4. Everything chargeable. E.g) Laundry bag is chargeable for rmb55.
5. The spa is charge for ridiculous price
6. Housekeeping did not change the bed sheet. Keep using for several days until we take out ourselves.
7. They do a gimmick for low price however the price is not including service tax.

I will not consider to come again. Absolutely not.

The price for a room here 500 rmb was very good compared to other 5 star hotels, so we arrived without high expectations. As others have said there is a lot of work going on so despite the granular lobby the fact is the bar is closed, the restaurants have been moved temporarily to 40th floor so facilities a bit disappointing. However we did get a too upgrade and the desk staff were very helpful. Room was huge and very comfortable. We did not go for breakfast as on inspection there was very little choice and not worth the 108 extra. If you do want breakfast I suggest you book it with the room as some sites offered 2 breakfasts for only 100 more on the room price.

Stayed during the trade fair period, appreciated the shuttle bus to the convention centre. Hotel could definitely do with a refurbishment. We arrived in our room to find a floater in the toilet! To keep us going, we ordered a toasted sandwich and fries from the foyer. It arrived cold. After mentioning this, the waitress went off, talked to someone and gave the impression that they would not charge full price - but they did. The room was tidy. The breakfast was very average with not much selection. All in all I would say this is a 3 star hotel.
