I have stayed here 5 or 6 times in the last couple of years since it opened , and it is still very good. The French team who run the hotel are wonderful , especially if you have a problem. It is very busy during the Canton Fair as are all the hotels but it is still good .
The bathrooms are showing signs of wear and tear but overal the quality is excellent. The beds are superb and the rooms are very trendy.
Top tips - for things to do
The local Chinese restaurant (first on left on main road outside the hotel) is really good and very cheap. It looks basic but the food is great. Don't worry if you can't speak Cantonese just point to the pictures!!
Also my China colleagues showed me a local foot massage place which is only 100m from the hotel after the restaurant. go past a swiss named hotel , to the next building. Walk in next to the barrier, and turn right . There are no English signs so this place rarely sees westerners but the 1 hour foot massge is only 78 Rmb. It's authentic and excellent. They have an English Menu and some if the staff speak a little . Well worth a visit after a long day walking round the shows.
