“Pretty nice”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 via mobile

Well located, quite near city centre and metro station. Not so easy to find. The directions on their website don't make sense, the map location is misleading and their website doesn't give the address in Chinese. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, some expensive and some pretty cheap.

As for the hotel, I had a superior room and it was very nice. Big, comfortable bed, large window, good a/c, good WiFi and mostly clean bathroom. The TV had heaps of stations, all Chinese though. On the downside the fridge wasn't very cold and the towels smelled bad. It was also possible to hear the tv from the next room through the wall. There was a basic mini bar.

Staff were friendly but don't speak much English. Breakfast was decent with a variety of Chinese and western foods. While there was plenty to eat none of it was particularly amazing, but still good enough to fill up on.

Overall I had a good stay here and it seemed like pretty good value.

We stayed at the Colorful Days Hotel twice. Although the hotel offers basic accommodation the price is right for those on a budget. It is also close to the metro which is very convienient. The breakfast matron was very pleasant always offering us what she thought we would enjoy. However, they only serve a Chinese breakfast. Not to everyone's taste. Our rooms were comfortable and clean. We were on the quiet side of the hotel. We liked that there were many restaurants in the immediate vicinity to choose from: Indian, .Indonesian , and Turkish. Of course there were many Chinese restaurants as well. For the most part the staff was helpful and pleasant.

Room Tip: The zoo is nearby and a great place to spend an afternoon.

We`ve been there for one night, but you cannot stay there longer.
We`ve taken over half an hour to check in as the girls there barely don`t speak english.
The first room, they`ve given us was a smoker room (although we`ve booked a quite, non-smoking room!). As I`m pregnant, we`ve asked for another room-it was again a smoker rooms (maybe they only have those rooms?) The third room was more or less okay, but in direction to the street and therefore really noisy.
The rooms weren`t very clean, the washing basin doesn`t work, the air con + tv remote controls only with cantonese characters, the window glass of the breakfast room dirty, the breakfast very, very bad (although the breakfast lady was very nice) . Sad is the fact, that the interieur and the design of the hotels isn`t that bad, as it doesn`t have these kitschy chinese attitude, but it is unfortunately not very well-kept.

Asked for a triple room, it was a small and dirty room with 3 single beds positioned as a big one(continuum). Asked to change room next night, they say it was possible and showed us a big room. The next days they say they give it to another guest. We asked to reserve another hotel for us. no way. Asked to sleep in that dirty and small room for free the last (second night) since they promise us a bigger one. They say yes and the next morning they asked to pay both nights. Liar! they say allways yes to all and then they do whatever they want. It is better to change hotel instead having all those problems in a business trip. We reserved 5 nights and would stay only one! last thing... out of the big wall window there were people working on the building looking inside our room!!

Stayed here for the Canton Fair for 3 weeks in April and May. Room was not clean by my standards anyway - could smell the shower and toilet drains from the bathroom all through the room. Shower and toilet were not cleaned as you would expect in a hotel - just quickly wiped over with the existing dirty towels. This is not a hotel really just some rooms created on the first floor of an old building and very noisy during the night with other stayers in the hotel. The restaurants referred to in internet advertisements are the restaurants outside along the road - there is nothing in the hotel other than reception desk. No fridge in room so asked for upgrade. Got upgrade to view room. Check out picture of my room with a view. Even had to pay extra 100RMB PER NIGHT for this view. Scaffolding has been attached to building for years and all day everyday workers trapse up the scaffolding to work with jackhammers on above floors - NOISY as. Staying here was not a good experience and even complaining will get you NOWHERE. They don't speak much english and just look at you. I witnessed many unhappy customers very angry with staff. Only one TV channel in english which was CNNNews. TV controls and air conditioning controls were all in chinese so that was a problem and the door key ALWAYS FAILS to open the door.

On a positive note the bed and bedding was very comfortable, restaruants were good and getting to the fair was easy. Although it was about 35RMB to get to the fair from here, to get back from the fair taxi drivers refused to take you in their cabs unless you first agreed to pay 100RMB which you were forced to do. Hotel extremely expensive for what it is at canton fair time.

Pros
- Lots of resturants nearby
- Subway is not too far, though a bit walking required
Cons
- Lousy decoration <-- even more scary with all the dolls
- Bad breakfast
- Loud noise from street, and from walkway inside the hotel
- Looks more like Love Hotel <-- Pls don't ask your supplier to meet there!
- Sticky floor
- Jammed bathroom
- Unreasonably expensive during Canton Fair ... very bad value

Stay here if you're on tight budget, and just need a place to sleep for a few hours.

Reviewed 26 April 2010

it's located on the second floor with the first floor mainly shops and restaurants.
It has a great location as you won't go hungry with all the restaurants available and there's
a metro (subway) nearby.
However, the staffs can hardly speak english. The room was just fine but the bathroom is a bit disgusting (for me anyways)

Positive: 2 computers are available for you to use in the lobby with internet and webcam.
Negative: the hotels are full of people shouting in the middle of the nights
