“Still good value after10 years”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 2 weeks at the end of March, our 6th visit in 10 years. They have refurbished some of the rooms to a slightly higher standard than before. Breakfast still has a good choice of Chinese, Japanese and western food. Rooms are clean and tidy and service has generally improved. Still a good location for the centre of the city. They are building a light railway that will run near the hotel so there is some traffic disruption at present.

Stayed April 2014, traveled with family

I stay here every second month and For the price of the room 350rmb it is very central to ATMs, restaurants ( hotspot duck and various others to the right hand side across the road and down 100 meters) and shopping.very safe to walk at any time of the night. If you want location and to walk .there is a shuttle service to and from the airport also included if you arrange prior to your stay. If you want luxury , stay at the Novotel or somewhere else, but if you want value and location in Guiyang, this is a good place to start. As always bargain when booking or ask for their best rate prior to booking.

We stayed here for several days while exploring Guizhou on day trips. It provided an excellent base and pleasant place to spend our evenings. Restaurant across the street was good and provided variety of meals for us. The rooms were comfortable and well furnished and of decent size. Nothing terribly special about the rooms and facilities but more than adequate. Breakfast was okay with some Western choices. Cleanliness was excellent and service pleasant.

This is my fourth stay (10 days) at the Regal Hotel over the last 7 years. It is a good hotel for a holiday and touring in Guizhou, although my wife and I stay when we visit relatives.
It is in a relatively quiet part of the centre of Guiyang - a walk in QianLing park is less than half a mile away. We always stay in a DeLuxe Room which is well worth the extra if Chinese friends are going to visit in your room. The room is very comfortable but noisy (traffic) even on the 23rd floor. Airconditioning and water systems work well.
Breakfast is a great mix of western, asian and chinese. Freshly made noodle soup is made to order in front of you as well as fried eggs etc. In short ther is something for everyone. In the evening there is a similar styled reasonably priced buffet encorporating food for all tastes. The patisserie this year was excellent, cakes with a light texture and good taste were a match for any hotel in China. Service is good and restaurant staff are attentive.
There is always a buzz about the hotel as they do a lot of conferences and weddings at the weekend - so there is always something going on.
Discounted prices are usually available and overall the hotel is excellent value for money

I have stayed at the Regal a number of times since March 2008 as my husband's company have an arrangement with this hotel.

The rooms are larger than the average Chinese hotel and this year the hotel has been undergoing refurbishment. The hotel room has everything you would want whether your visit is for leisure or business. The internet connection is at no charge. The bed is firm but very comfortable. There is also a nice swimming pool.

The staff are friendly although English speaking is still limited, but if you need help the assistant managers who are based in the foyer, speak very good English.

There is a mix of Western and Chinese food at breakfast and the food generally is good qualtiy and good value. The buffet at dinner is worth a try.

The hotel has a car service or the bellboys can call a taxi.

As a previous reviewer commented, be very careful crossing the streets - cars will continue to come from around the corner, even if you are crossing on a green light.

We haven't stayed in any other hotels in Guiyang, but my husband and I have just come back from visiting a few other cities in China and the Regal is our favourite when you compare value for money.

We stayed at the Regal when we adopted our daughter in Guiyang. Because we were staying for several days and had a child with us, we upgraded to a suite. It was very affordable compared to comparables in the US. The living area is very large. We were able to move furniture out of the way and had a large play area for the babies to gather and play when it was rainy outside.

Gorgeous furnishings, 2 marble bathrooms, large living room area, and good sized bedroom. Mattress was hard as a rock, but we found that all over China.

The restaurant was ok, better than most of the others we frequented while in China. Everyone was very friendly, but communication was a little difficult. Not much English spoken.
They tried their best, though, to figure out what we needed.

There were nice little shops and restaurants within walking distance, and it was so easy to catch a cab to go anywhere. Suggestion... while in a cab, just keep your eyes closed and don't watch. Once you've seen the traffic in China you'll know what I'm talking about. Road signs, lane markings and stop lights are just a suggestion.

We plan to go back in a few years and look forward to staying at the Regal again.

  • Liked — Beautiful hotel.
  • Disliked — Smell of cigarette smoke in some areas. Very common in China, though.
