“Great hotel.”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Pros: Great hotel with clean, spacious, nicely furnished rooms, a HUGE comfy bed and fluffy pillows and nice shower. Chaise longue was a nice touch. Wifi was good. Breakfast was fine and had enough Western options (bacon, eggs, sausages, yoghurt, cereals and toast) and was on till 10:30. Check-in and out was smooth. Good location for border crossing, that underground mall and Lianhua Pedestrian Street. Easy to get taxis and busses. Lots of restaurants and shopping in walking distance.
Cons: we had a non-smoking room and the room itself smelled of a nice air freshener. However, the bathroom filled with stale smoke air every time you turned on the extractor fan during the first day and a half. Doors are not very sound proof, so if housekeeping or your next room neighbours decide to have a chat in the hall, you will most likely be woken up. Light switches are touch pads that glare bright blue at night. Reception spoke good enough English for check-in but that was it. We tried to find out which bus to take to go to the Fisher Girl Statue (we also had the name in Chinese) and if there was a bus to the airport, but we only got blank stares. Granted, bus info is not really part of their job but it would have been helpful.

The Pros definitely outweighed the Cons, and I would definitely stay here again.

Overall it is a good hotel to stay. But there are two comments you may want to know. Firstly, the towel is a bit old and hard and it is not so fragrant. Secondly, if you stay at high floors, there will see lots of discarded furniture on the roof of other lower buildings.

Also when you use their clothes hanger, remember to put back in the wardrobe before you check out. We had a problem when my son left one cloth hanger on the bed and they actually make you wait to look for it. Apparently some PRC travellers like to take things from the hotel.

This hotel is most conveniently located being very close to the immigration check point going across to Macau. Also very close to restaurants or cheap street food. It was wonderful being able to walk over to the underground shopping mall at immigration center for loads of shopping and also some good food.

The hotel itself is great. Room was of adequate size with an huge and comfortable bed. It is very clean and the hotel stuff were friendly and helpful. checking in and out was a breeze. Due to its strategic location, we were able to walk to lot of places, hence, getting plenty of exercise after all the good food. Will be our top choice on any return trip.

Thank you past reviewers for the high recommendation of Guotai Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel for the following reasons:-
Pros
1) Great location (near the Gongbei Port Underground Shopping Mall).
MeteredTaxi drivers are honest & will take you to destination in shortest way with reasonable
fares.
2) Room was impressive - marble & carpet flooring.
3) Bed - Super King size and very comfortable (with thick topper) - best bed in China!
4) Toilet - modern quality toilet accessories (Toto taps, WC) and rain shower.
5) Wifi in Room and they provided a PC in the room too.
6) Reception staff were friendly and helpful.
Cons
1) No Non-Smoking Rooms (residue smoke smell in the room).
2) Bedside Reading Light inadequate - small rotating light does not reach bedside (angle is wrong - shines on your head but not reading materials). Not bright enough.
3) Reception staff not well conversant in English.
Overall, we had a great stay at Guotai Hotel and will highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Choose high floor rooms facing Gongbei Port. Stayed at 812 - good view and quiet. Not sure about ro...

What struck me at first that water from shower started to flow by itself at 1:30 at night. I woke up from the sound of water... It was just a warm-up before wake-up knocking at the door at 4:30. Ladies were checking ALL ROOMS on the floor and asking whether any demand for massage existed. They knocked and rang all rooms on the floor and actually many guests were quite positive to accept the service. Absolutely unacceptable for a hotel which puts four starts at its front. And come on... 4.30am is the wrong time!!!
Absolutely helpless reception desk adds to the picture. I am not exaggerating my requirements for receptionists, but at least they should know how to find the guest's reservation in their database. Poor very poor.
The only smart person I could meet in this hotel was a guy in business center, who even did not speak English, but could help me best of all.
Room, bathroom, breakfast - everything was OK with no serious comments.

Good:
1. Room is spacious, cosy and clean. The touch screen for the switches are great and fun to use.
2. The king size bed is very luxurious,
3. Receptionist are always very friendly and accommodating,
4. Bathroom is nice as you can lift the screen and watch TV and shower at the same time, haha.
5. Location is good as it is near the gongbei immigration. But if you come from the immigration, be prepared to lug your luggage a fair bit - about 10-15minutes walk to the hotel.
6. Near the basement shopping area which ladies can shop till you drop but must bargain hard. Eateries are found in this basement shopping area as well and certain ones are quite nice.

Not so good:
1. The spa in the hotel is dubious...Go out of the hotel to nearby bigger spa establishment for a relaxing time. All within about 5minutes walk only.
2. Outside of the hotel near the entrance at night have quite some not so appropriate business touting. The ladies can be insistent but if you are not interested, just don't say anything and walk on and you will be fine.
3. Hotel room has n bath robe so if you travel in winter/spring time, it can be cold.

Room Tip: 1. Go nearby spa establishments(at least about 4 of them) to do your spa treatments. It's very g...
