“Roomy but Old”
Reviewed 17 October 2012

Stayed there for 5 nights from 30th September to 5th October 2012. The studio unit is roomy and somewhat comfortable. Complete with basic bathroom amenities but old torn towels. Sleeping on the bed is like sleeping on timber flooring. It was as hard. Nevertheless, the unit was clean and the room attendants did their rounds daily without fail, whether you are inside the room or not. The pantry was clean and they and they did their job with delightful smiles and without saying any words (probably because they don't speak English, and I don't speak Mandarin).

The front desk staff on the other hand, doesn't smile and never even once I heard them say thank you or any kind of greetings at all. Probably because they don't speak any English (but they do) and I don't speak Mandarin.

I would stay there again, since it was cheap with great location (or maybe because I just don't know if there are any other hotels in the area). A walking distance to Beijing Lu, a somewhat upscale night market for tourists. My wife enjoyed shopping there. All in all, I give it an average stay experience.

Walking distance to Beijing Lu, a lot of eateries, about 10 mins walk to MRT. The service apartment is always busy and crowded with people at the lobby. No wifi in rooms. Rooms are big and comfortable. anyway, if you only need a decent place to stay this will be the right choice.

I won't even mention the roaches and the filth. I just want to warn travellers that the people at the front desk are crooks! BEWARE! Upon checkout they gave me my deposit back with FAKE 100 bills. When I got to the airport and found out the money was countefeit, I returned to the hotel and they vehemently denied giving me the money. These people are crooks. Unless you can tell the difference in Chinese money, RUN FROM THIS PLACE!

Had stayed in this several times and this is the worst. Had a triple room this time at Room 3511 and found lots of baby cockroach in the room. Overall room fittings is a little old, had to wait for a long time for the lift. Ideal location for wholesale market.

There was blood on the floor and we ask room service to clean it up. She said it was soy sauce. There is a chicken bone on the desk. Hair on the bed. Room service was slow to come clean the room. The internet outlet is lose and you can see the wires hanging out. Couldn't get a stable connection so I wiggle the wires and see sparks. Very dangerous. Took a shower and I burn my hand on the faucet. This is in room 1508. I definately won't ever come back to here again.

We stayed in a standard twin room. First impression was the room was reasonably spacious (though very tired). Handy to have small kitchenette with fridge, kettle, sink, microwave etc. Bathroom was clean, spacious shower. Had to turn on hot water before using the shower.

Beds were very hard (typical chinese beds), though were slightly larger than a normal single bed which was nice.

The view of the river was nice when you could actually see anything out the window (Guangzhou is very polluted).

Service at the front desk was not very good, only one person spoke English, and were unable to give me basic directions or help us book train tickets etc.

The whole property is looking very tired, and in need of a makeover, though I believe some of the upper floors are already undergoing refurbishment. Wasn't terrible though.

Breakfast was 30Yuan per person, buffet. Very limited western options, wouldn't recommend eating there. McDonald is only a short stroll away anyway.

Beijing Lu is maybe a 7-10 minute walk away, which has some good shopping and HEAPS of dining options.

Guangzhou is a great city for shopping, and there is plenty to do just in the hotel area.

Given 4* rating, as we only paid $55US / night, got a great rate with Agoda.com. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for High Floor - river view
