stayed there on my trip to Hongkong Guangzhou for 4 nights. Hotel is old but very well maintained. best part of hotel is location rt in the center of hunshi dong lu and next to big malls like La Parle and Guangzhou friendship store.
Taojin metro station is like rt outside the hotel.
There is 7 11 and some travel agent shop outside the main gate of hotel. which was very useful.
looking forward to stay again there.
