“luxury next to Guangzhou East Railway Station”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

First class hotel, no complaints. The room was first quality. I did not check out the fitness center. The building has offices in the side of the building facing the railway station, the hotel rooms are on the other side, so walking from the registration desk, you get to the office elevators first, keep walking to the back of the building for the hotel elevators.

We stayed at the hotel during the trade fair period which is usually a high season and the rates at that time more than triples. We paid 1380 RMB per night which is still value for money compared to other hotels offering at the same period.
The is facing east railway station exit which is very convenient for travellers coming from Hong Kong or other cities in China. The metro station is 20m away connecting you to various lines.
Across the street there is a huge commercial center which hosts a hypermarket calked Jusco in addition to a variety of international outlets and fast food chains.
The rooms are spacious, comfortable and well furnished.
The housekeeping service is excellent as they make up the rooms twice a day and are ready to for any demands.
The higher the rooms the better the view as there are two old buildings on the side. Room numbers ending with 01 to 09 have the best views.

As others have mentioned, it is extremely well located. As someone who travels extensively, I can only surmise that the negative reviews were from when the hotel first opened and, perhaps, the staff was not well trained. My stay was very nice, the staff were very accommodating and the stay was pleasant.

The room itself was very well appointed with what are, for many Asian hotels, luxury items. The bathroom (see pictures) has a full compliment of personal items nicely laid out and even has a scale. It also had a 3-D picture of a bunny, a very Asian touch. Bunny picture aside, the bathroom was very comfortable. The shower is glass enclosed and, of course, there is a privacy screen to pull down if someone is sharing your room.

The room has a hospitality setup of teapot and teas and a full mini bar (reasonably priced). It also has other personal items for sale on the mini bar. The cups and utensils were clean and nicely stored. The closet had a safe and 2 robes for your comfort.

The lobby areas were very nice. I am not certain if the floor which I was on was special but there was a nice sitting area outside of my room (see picture) and the waiting area by the elevators were also comfortable and neat.

Breakfast was a full Asian and western affair, with a chef making omelets. Besides the relatively small western breakfast selection (cereals, toasts, yogurt, etc.) there were at least 8 steam trays of Chinese foods including noodle dishes, vegetable dishes and congee (porridge). As in most Chinese hotels, breakfast foods are more typical of a western lunch or dinner. You won't leave hungry.

The room itself was large, the beds were comfortable and the desk / work area was ample.

About the only issue I had was the the wi-fi did not work in my room, it did work in the room of my colleague, just one door down from me. It was not that important to me so I cannot tell you how they would have resolved it, as I did not complain.

The room rates, as listed are 1080 RMB (currently about $171 US) 1280 RMB for a business room (currently about $200 US) up to 2380 RMB ($377) for a Deluxe Suite (with 3 options in between) and the VILI suite for 6800 RMB, over $1,000. I'm not sure what that is but given what I got for what I paid, I can only guess it would be amazing.

However, my Chinese colleague who arranged for this room got us 2 business rooms for 800 RMB total! That is $126 US for 2 rooms, or about $63 / night per room. As you can see by the attached pictures, that is quite a good value. Note that their rate card says "All rates not valid during trade fair period, April 14 - May 5 and October 14 - November 5. We stayed just before the October trade fair period.

They also accept all major credit cards including American Express which is also not common in many Chinese hotels.

I stayed at this hotel for business with another colleague and found the location very convenient. The hotel room itself and lobby is very decent, the hallway is kind of strange since there is little lightning and the hotel is shared with some office complex. The beds are super hard but overall the place was quiet and spacious. For $400 hkd a night during exhibitions, I think it's a steal.

Located accross the road from Guangzhou East Railway Station is convenient to get around. The hotel has rooms through the hotel or apartments to lease independently, which we used. The cost was less than $40 AUD a night. The water pressure in the shower was not very strong and the bed was very hard. Good value for longer stays as the apartment is fully furnished with microwave, washing machine etc. I'm a fussy sleeper so would not stay again as it was like sleeping on an ironing board.

What makes it great? It is very convenient for anyone travelling to Gunagzhou by train from Hong Kong. That trip is a great way to travel. We flew with Air Canada from Vancouver to Hong Kong. Stayed in Hong Kong for a few days and then took the KTT (Kowloon Through Train) to Guangzhou. Great scenes of the New Territories countryside and comfortable ride in the Premium Class (230HKD per person). The Vili is a short walk from the East Guangzhou train station (less than 1 city block). New hotel, quiet rooms, nicely appointed and well-priced (we paid about 65RMB per night for a "business room". Hotel staff very friendly and helpful in arranging taxi rides whereever we wanted to go (the most expensive ride was across town to a great shopping street including the Lu Wan Plaza silver and bead market (50 RMB). Anothyer great market, the leather market, was a 30RMB taxi ride. We also rode the Guangzhou subway system which was clean, inexpensive, fast and navigatable in Eniglish. The station in right across the street from the VIli hotel. Good place to stay.

The security was terrible as Vili International Hotel is located in a building shared with office. It was not unusual to see a lot of not-hotel-guest using the elevator and walking through the passageway. more worse, when I returned from a meeting, the room appeared someone else had used the room............I will never come back again

Room Tip: Visit a third world hotel on a Pennsylvanian budget
