I stayed at this hotel on January 13 with my girlfriend and booked it via Ctrip.
This hotel is located on the side of a highway and I came here via taxi. The bellboy came right away to take my luggage and the check in was fast. On the way up, I noticed the elevator did not require a key card like other 5 star hotels so that was a bit surprising. The view from the elevator is great because it is transparent and you can have a view of Guangzhou East Station.
The room does not convey opulence like other hotels but rather a more business like feel but still nonetheless the ambiance is great. The bathroom is pretty spacious with the usual amenities. Do note that if you plan to take some of the amenities with you like the shower gels, they are easy to open it is advisable to put it in a separate bag. Our room was at the back of the hotel. The view isn't much, a mountain and a condominium in front of it. However, I was surprised at how quiet the hotel was considering we were next to a highway, even when I opened the window.
I tried both the Chinese and Western restaurant. The restaurants are located on opposite ends of the hotel. The Chinese restaurant and the food was surprisingly decent and not expensive. For the Western restaurant, the fish was a bit bland, but the soups and fried rice was good.
The service was prompt and the concierge was very earnest in helping me find a place I wanted to go to, even letting me step behind the counter to look at the online map. The restrooms in the lobby was very nice but there was a overwhelming smell of mothballs.
The location of this hotel is not the most convenient. You have a walk a bit to get to the nearest subway station exit, exit J, and you have to cross a pedestrian bridge. Do note that certain exits like exit J do not connect you to the Guangzhou East Railway Train Station. You can also walk a bit further and go through a pedestrian tunnel and through the tunnel you are on the other side where there is a KFC and where you can walk to the other popular parts of Tianhe.
From the hotel, it is walkable to decent shops and restaurants, it is just takes a bit of time. Start walking to the left of the hotel and after 10 or so minutes you will see a street full of it.
Overall, while the location of this hotel is not the most convenient, it is still accessible and despite being on the highway, a quiet and relaxing night's rest is certain.
