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.
