With high season rates at most hotels during the Canton Fair in Guangzhou, this is a good place to stay. The hotel is a short taxi ride from the fairground and comfortable to stay. There seemed to be at least one English speaker at the front desk at all hours, which we found quite helpful.
Pros: Quiet, comfortable and clean. Location is good, if you're just planning on visiting the Pazhou fairground every day (multiple free shuttle services also available during fair dates). Staff were very polite, courteous and eager to help.
Cons: Reservations not real-time or secure, and I needed to send multiple emails to get a booking. Also, they required me to send credit card and passport copies by email (no secure server) to confirm the booking. Location is very close to the fair grounds, but a good 45 mins by taxi from the tourist areas of the city or the main stations and airport. There aren't any 'international' restaurants nearby - only local Chinese cuisine. No Metro station near the hotel either, so you must rely on taxis to get out. Staff was trying to be helpful, but it seemed like a lot of them were still trainees and did not fully know how to operate their own systems (and once, a credit card machine). Money exchange can be a problem too.
