“What do you expect in a factory area ?”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

I stay here for a few nights each month and there is absolutely nothing 'wow' or even memorable about the place - except - you must remember it is right in the middle of a factory area. That is pretty much all you will find in the vicinity and I doubt it will ever appear on a tourists list of places to visit and stay.
Dong Guan is what it is - an industrial area. Therefore to find a half decent hotel is something to appreciate (there are some fancy big name hotels in the 'Dong Guan area' but we are talking at least a 30 minute drive from here to Hyatt, Sheraton etc.

CHECK IN/OUT is usually a time consuming drama involving at least 3 staff members and a lot of dithering as if you are the very first guest they ever had.
ROOMS are actually pretty good with all you really need. Always seem clean and well maintained. Some mini bars are well stocked - some are empty (never had the will power to get into that conversation with reception).
WATCH OUT - odd numbered rooms are road side which is extremely noisy with constant lorries passing. Even numbered overlook the car park or pool.
POOL - this is one of the best things here. It is huge, nice temperature as and long as you don't look too closely at the surface pleasant to swim in (avoid consumption !!).
BREAKFAST - this has been noticeably upgraded recently with table cloths, glasses for juice (previously paper cups ) and decent coffee. Food selection a bit limited but toast is ok. I am always put off the cereals by the grey milk.
PRICE - well worth US$50 per night.

Room Tip: even numbered rooms are significantly quieter. Odd numbers are on a busy road.

The hotel is ok but I was put off straight away by the strong smell of stale smoke in the bedrooms, we tried to move rooms but the reception staff couldn't really understand and only offered to rectify the situation by charging us to move rooms or to remove the ashtrays from the room! There is nothing going on within walking distance but a couple of nice restaurants a short taxi ride away. The pool is nice although had to be closed one day for cleaning as it started pumping in 'mysterious' brown water! The restaurant staff are very friendly but the language barrier was a problem!

Reviewed 8 May 2012

I stayed at the hotel as it was recommended as a base for visiting the Canton Fair in Guangzhou as free transport was arranged and although an hours travel from the fair the hotel was good and much cheaper than Guangzhou hotels at this peak period.

I looked at the web site, confirmed the free travel and booked via a Chinese booking site. Arriving after midnight I was shown 2 dismal smoky rooms which I refused and was upgraded free to the 3rd floor at the same price. This was a decent room for the price I paid, internet access included.

Next day I was told that only rooms twice the price attracted free transport which would have made a Guangzhou hotel more sense. To be fair, when the senior manager became involved all was resolved to my satisfaction at the lower price.

Breakfast is included but there is little western choice. There is a nightly sea food buffet, excellent value at 105 rmb but little variety night to night and not fully western taste. If you use the buffet book in advance and avoid the service charge. There is an exorbitantly expensive. Chinese restaurant.
The staff, without exception, were most helpful and friendly as is usual throughout China. After my initial poor experience I have nothing but praise for the especially helpful attitude of the staff, some of whom speak English.
The hotel is clean.
