It's an hotel by Pearl river and rooms are very luxurious. Free breakfast is sumptuous n delicious. Well maintained toilets. Spend evening time at swimming pool. Paid hotel tariff RMB 330 per night appx. 50 Euros.

Clean and adequate but outdated and in need of a revamp. Big room but showing its age. Comfortable bed. Bathroom was ok, everything worked. Polite staff and certainly no complaints about the service. Breakfast was fine, but nothing special - it was fairly basic and limited selection.

Decent hotel with basic services. Not much outside hotel as center of town is about 30 minutes away by foot. Room was clean though with good housekeeping. Food was okay. Main railroad station about 10 minutes by car.

Showing the knocks and bumps a little but comfortable enough. Buffet breakfast didn't offer a lot in the way of Western options -avoid what they pass off as sausages! The lobby seemed to be infested with mossies and the constant jangling of the piano on loop ruled out a quiet drink. Guess you could do worse

It's been a few years since staying at the Gladden Hotel and from the get go it's lost a lot of its former glory. Located in Shilong some 20 minutes from Dongguan Dongcheng city centre. It is convenient for the newly named Dongguan station with service from Shenzhen/Guangzhou line, not to be confused with the old Dongguan now Changping Station...

I stayed one night in this hotel and I did not complain about this. Room and bathoom were clean but worn out. Sleeping quality was poor due to constant noise out of aircon even if it was switched off. Bed was not very comfortable due to the hard pillows. Breakfast had minimum selection of western food, limited to the toast,...

When entering my room, I was struck by an intense heat from the AC - although it was September and in no possible way cold outside. Turning it all down helped a bit, but I'd have preferred a colder temperature. The newest thing in the entire hotel is the room service menu nicely displayed on the table. However, when checking...

Arrived at Guangzhou airport and was picked up by a driver personally arranged. We did hear you can catch a shuttle from Hong Kong Airport directly here. First time in China and do not know what to expect. Slightly on the edge when we arrived at the hotel because it wasn't located near malls or eateries. Rooms were big, toiletries...
