“Guangzhou's best kept secret”
Reviewed 27 April 2008

A hidden gem. Stayed at the hotel during the Canton Fair 2008 for five nights. This hotel is only 5 min drive from Pazhou complex and free shuttle bus service is available. There cannot be a better value for the business traveller especially due to its location. Only reason no one knows about this hotel is because it is brand new. Opened in March 2008, some parts of it were still being constructed. So there were some minor inconveniences but the staff at the hotel more than made up for it. They tried their best to accommodate and provided exceptionally courteous service.

Shangri La hotel (US$ 579 - $629 during Canton Fair) is about as close to Pazhou but I paid US$90 at Guangshang per night with free breakfast and free high speed Internet. Just can't beat the value. Lunch and dinner buffet were available at a very reasonable RMB 48. The hotel is inside the campus of a business university offering very safe environment for visitors.

If you are planning to stay at this hotel, print the hotel map with Chinese address and directions to give to the taxi driver. Its available on their web site (www.gsbusiness-hotel.com) click contact us on the bottom of the page.

Location, excellent customer service, safe environs and freebies - Strongly recommended.

I have just returned from this years Canton Fair, and finding this hotel was a strike of genius by my china rep.

The Pazhou Guangsheng Hotel is a business hotel. In my experience this means that it is not a good type of hotel to base yourself if you are site-seeing and this is no exception. But if you are seeking a new, clean modern hotel to base yourself at for the Canton Fair, this is it.

Initially, I booked myself into a hotel in Panyu, as I was priced out of most hotels in Guangzhou and it looked close enough to the fair's Pazhou complex. But do not be fooled by maps or hotel provided room images! Panyu is miles away from the fair and although the area feels safe and friendly, the hotel I stayed in needed a serious refurb so I had to move.

The Guangsheng Hotel is listed as a 3 star hotel but it puts most 4 star hotels in China to shame. I think it is only listed as a 3 star, because it has not fridge or safe in the rooms. But this has been suggested and I think they will offer this by the time the next fair comes along.

I booked a suite and the room was massive. Facilities included a flat screen tv, power shower, kingsize bed, floor to ceiling windows and coffee making facilities. All for 550RMB per night. Rooms have been newly decorated, were fresh and offered aircon as standard. There are smaller rooms available but the upgrade is definately worth it. Breakfast was included in the price and was served as a buffet in the hotel restaurant on the ground floor.

In terms of the fair, the hotel is only 5 mins away from the new Pazhou fair. This hotel offers a 'as you need it' pick up and drop off service. Mainly because it is so close to the complex - and other hotels struggle to do this. It is such a great service because it gives you flexibility for travelling when you want, especially if you want a late start, or want to come back early.

The staff are great. Most of them spoke english and they did all the little things that help a traveller. We took so many brochures back to the hotel, they suggested I use their weighing machine to ensure my luggage did not exceed its limit! They have a young but experienced team that oozes enthusiasm.

Overall I would say this is THE best hotel to stay in if you are going to the Canton Fair. Not a sight-seeing hotel, but if you are there for the fair, you should'nt have time anyway. This is new hotel with a desire to impress. If they add the in-room safe and fridge, this will be the best business hotel in Guangzhou.

  • Liked — New, fresh and a stones through from the Canton Fair Pazhou Complex
  • Disliked — No Fridge or In-Room Safe.
