“good enough ! - and affordable during Canton fair”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

Ok, so most Guangzhou hotels try to make a killing during Canton-fair.
if you dont want to be overcharged too much, the Good intl. Hotel is a fair alternative.

on the location:
There arenot that many hotels nearby the expo-center complex, so also the Good Intl is a good 20-30 minutes bus/taxi-ride away from Canton-fair. The hotel has a shuttle-bus service free-of-charge going several times in the morning to and in the afternoon back from the Canton-Fair complex - which worked quite fine i thought.

The pricetag during canton-fair is affordable, and literally the hotel is "good enough".
As always when comparing "chinese 5 stars" with "western brand 5 stars" there is not much difference in the rooms amenities and comfort.
Sleeping-quality is good, comfortable King bed, quiet A/C, good soundproofing.
its clean and the bathroom is large and nice

As the Good Intl. has plenty of exposure to international guests, there are no issues with communicating english with the staff.
The service-quality again is good - the staff is always trying to be helpful.

Food & Beverage also is above average for chinese-run property

All-in-All, truly a good, even very good hotel, and a great choice to stay in Guangdong for the fair.

I stayed in this hotel twice during the Canton Fair. This is a 5 star hotel for China standards but should be ok for most of the world. It is quite well organized, the rooms (most at least!) are quite spacious and with all the amenities you would expect from a 5 star hotel. I had a problem as the room that was prepared for me smelled a bit musty and everything was taking care in a very fast and professional way even thought it was 3 in the morning!
The reception staff is getting better and better every time I travel there and now the checking in and out is very fast and easy – there is a big deposit that you must make with your visa card that although you can get back in the end it may still be a problem as it can spend all you visa plafond.
The restaurant is great and you can have dinner safely, and with reasonable prices also. Not many people in the hotel, apart from the reception, speak English, but that is no problem and everyone in the hotel is so conscious and worried about making your stay as pleasant and convenient as possible. The breakfast is more than enough and with many options.
During the fair there is a bus that puts you in and out of the fair grounds.
The location of the hotel is great, as it is quite central in the tianhe area – with all the transportation you need within a walking distance – but still quiet as it is a bit away from the main street.
The hotel is quite well priced compared to others 5 stars hotels during the fair time, so I would stay again in my next visit to the city.

We stayed for 2 nights. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Great location for shopping malls and the Canton Fair. The restaurant is the only downfall. There is no ventilation or air extraction, so you exit smelling of food. We were seated in the bar area for breakfast, which smelt of last nights smoke.
The staff were great, smiley and helpful.

I find this hotel quite expensive and not all that good. Although my suite (2019) was huge, it smells musty, has ratty carpets, virtually no drawer space and very few hangers in the closet. There is a decent amoung of English spoken here, and the front desk staff is more efficient that in many places. The breakfast buffet was not too bad, although there isn't much in the way of service so don't expect your plates to be cleared or your coffee to be refilled. The location is convenient for my work, and is close to the subway and some very nice shopping (Teemall and Grandview Mall).

The hotel is surely bang in the middle of Tianhe district, which is the real heart of the city now. The hotel is elegant and quite grand. Food options are minimal for a foreign traveller though. The problem with the location is the huge crowd around the hotel. There is a lot happeneing around you when you just come out fo the hotel. It gets a bit rough with the traffic during peak rush hours. It is quite close to Tee Mall which is a shopper's paradise.

I chose to use the underground to get to the hotel and with a few directions found the hotel without much difficulty. I walked in to the hotel to find it all decorated for Christmas and playing Christmas Carols which made me feel right at home. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
I found the glass wall on the bathroom a little off putting but I just pulled the blind down which solved most of the problem (it was still a little see through but It was fine).
I spent a lot of time in the room as my purpose was to have a few days away to relax. The room was very comfortable, free internet, cosy chair and a big window to let the light in.
Breakfast Buffet was more than adequate.
I did a day trip out to Hong Kong as it was close enough to the Guangzhou East Railway Station to do so.
