Stayed 3 nights in Novotel. Highly recommended! Went on a 8 days tour of Guizhou inclusive of hotel stay. Variety of choices for buffet breakfast! Visited Miao village at Xijiang, Daqikong & xiaoxikong in Libo; Breast Peak at Qi Feng; boat ride Wang Feng Lake; buggy ride at Wang Feng Lin; walked under Huangguoshu Waterfall at Anshun. Visited Dragon Palace & Guanyin Cave.
Beautiful & natural scenery - pristine nature & waterfalls!

The Novotel is an excellent hotel, reasonably priced, with very comfortable rooms and furniture.
The staff speak reasonably good English and are extremely helpful.
The location is good.
We had a high floor and entrance to the Premier (aka executive) facilities which are OK.
Breakfast buffet is western and good.

Room Tip: If you drive, and not familiar with the hotel look for a tall building with the Novotel sign, as the...

After few visit to Guiyang and stayed in few hotels, this hotel is still the best location in town no doubt. Rates are of great value taking into consideration her good location right in the middle of BCD. 30 minutes away from airport. I came back to this hotel for the 3rd time and will be back again. Thanks to the front office staff Anny who gave me all the assistance.

Great hotel with excellent Novotel standard. Very clean and modern.
Stunning rooms with everything you need.
The inhouse food is nothing to get excited about, however it works if you're tired of Chinese food. The Pullman hotel have one of the best Western restaurants in the city however I prefer Novotels rooms and location.

This hotel is very clean and quite well located. The biggest problem by far is the lack of English amongst the staff. It is just so difficult to communicate. I went to the "Wine Bar" to be told I could not order a beer or even a GLASS of wine - only a bottle! They need to be educated what a wine bar is to the western visitor. Chinese are great at picking up webster names or phrases without knowing the real meaning. This can lead to much misunderstanding.

I wanted a cup of tea and it was presented as English Tea and cake. I was given a pot of hot water and ONE tea bag. When I asked for another tea bag they wanted to charge me 28 rmb or around $5 extra. I protested and had to wait ages for the 'manager' to speak to me.

It seems impossible to get a taxi and pay a flat rate for say four hours. It seems to be unheard of.

Room Tip: Some rooms are very small, ask for a bigger one. Make sure you stress non- smoking if that's wh...
