“Be prepare if you are not chinese”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2011

I arrived there on May 2 2011. They gave me a smoking room , so the cigarette smell was awful. I requested a changed, but they did not have more rooms available. In general the hotel is not that bad if you do not care about food and comfort . The hotel need total reface . The maintenance is not good , so you can see the deterioration all over the place. Only few people speak English like every where in Guangzhou. The hotel has a good location for the canton fair in the new complex. Price is cheap. You have to be careful when booking and ask rooms with windows. The breakfast buffet is included , so you can not spec for that price to have a 5 stars hotel buffet.

Room Tip: Ask fro rooms with window and non smoking.

I am staying this hotel for a trade show in the expo centre; my friend in China booked this hotel for me through his HR dept. to save me trouble.

I've read some not so good reviews on this forum before, but decided to take a chance. Well, it didn't pay off. It's a 2 star hotel disguising as a 3.5 star hotel.

They messed up my reservation; originally, I was going to stay here for 6 days, but they had only booked 1 night; so when I asked them, they said they can move me up to a better room tomorrow night for a fee. Considering all the hotel is booked up in this area, so I didn't have much choice.

Anyways, my suggestion to you is this, if you're a light sleeper and require a good bed for sleeping, stay away from this hotel.

Overall I can say that staying in this hotel was worthy. We choose the hotel because it was close to Canton Fair un Pazhou Complex. The rooms are good enough, the price good. Generally I can say it is good experience.

However, avoid Restaurant. The service is very poor. There are not capable to attend a crowdy hotel, while you have to stand there watching others to stop eating and leave their table for you. Even in less crowdy stays, the food is poor and the service is terrible bad. It took more than 30 minutes to get a dessert, finally they came with the wrong dessert and at the end they charge you a tip, that they don't deserve

I stayed there for whole 20 days as I had lots of work in the area.
The hotel is close to the canton fair, but about 5 miles away from the ideal center of the city - about 20-25 RMB by taxy.
The room and bath were OK. Very convenient digital panel next to the bed controlled all lamps and appliances both in the room and bathroom.
The bed was firm as is usual in China, but no too hard.
It was noisy. I could hear every single car on the street.
The staff doesn't know much english. Very basic. The restaurant has no western food as advertised, the breakfast was also completely foreign to me - didn't like it. The massage-girls also did not know any english and were not so skilled.
The internet access was free as advertised, but only wired with only short cable on disposal.
Overall it is acceptable for the price, but I would not go back there again.
