Location, Convenience, and Comfort

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Apr 29, 2012
When we arrived at the hotel, we noticed that there was a construction of a big building in front of its main entrance, which made the path so narrow that the car was not able to drop us right in front of the entrance. We have to make a some steps with our luggages. The front desk was fast and quite entertaining on checking us in. We got 2 rooms of a 1 bedroom suite, since the size was just enough for my parents, and for me and my brother on each room for comfort in our 5 night stay. The bed was just firm enough for us to sleep. There were not so many choices in the buffet breakfast though, but they are quite delicious. They even provided us bottled water, and a notebook in the free shuttle bus to and from the Canton Fair. The location of this hotel is near the Guangzhou East Railway Station. The railway station also has a Metro for the convenience of our travel. Not only that, there are also restaurants, coffee shops, convenience stores, department store and grocery, nearby the hotel for the much needed convenience. This makes the hotel a great location.
Date of stay: April 2012
Room Tip: Always ask the Front Desk to show the room first before they let you stay there for the night.
Trip type: Traveled with family

when we checked in this hotel we were very surprised, because there were kitchenette, fridge, DVD player and so in the reservation, but we received just a simple double room, even they did not want to give two breakfast coupon for our double use queen room.
Finally manager said: tired to discuss and gave two coupon, but we did not feel well.
Anyway, we survived it, later the staff was very polite and the hotel was ok.
Question: does easytobook thinking on any compensation?
It could be interesting for the further reservations.

2 taxi drivers refuse to take us to this hotel after telling them the hotel name and address. Later only we knew we got to tell them the hotel near East train station or behind Centre Plaza. The subway was just next to the hotel which was very conveniet. The room was neat and clean.

Right next to the railway station and the subway. Good room with separate living and bedroom. Near shooing and food outlets. If you are fast food buff and late snacker, there are Macdonalds and late nite eateries. Only setback is there are no in-house food service. Good value for 400+ yuan for a comfy stayover.

Booked this with CTRIP during canton fair. Didn't read the terms where there is a one night charge if I cancel or check out a day early. Makes sense because anyone would run after staying for a night. The only thing going for it is the location as it is close to Guangzhou East Rail station and that's about it. Booked a business room. Guess what? the business room doesn't have a working table, so... I requested for one and they literally left it in my room (see picture). Uncomfortable sofa and hard bed. They use a home-type bedsheet with patterns but left me feeling like I'm staying in someone's room. Worst is, I left the Do Not Disturb sign out on my last day before heading out as I didn't want my stuff to be moved. They didn't care. Came in and nicely hung back the sign behind the door. Will not return...

Location was very very convenient
-- mcdonalds nearby
-- 2 minutes walk to subway
-- right across the train station to hong kong
-- lots of shopping in the underground shopping center opposite the train station

Facilities were complete if you stay in one of the basic suites
-- room had ref, water boiler, etc.
-- free internet connection

BUT
-- bed was pretty hard if you're not used to it
-- lacked a "working table" hardly a proper height desk to work

Overall OK!

Room tip: Face the courtyard
