Chimelong Hotel
Ranked #38 of 3,522 Hotels in Guangzhou
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Having stayed in lots of state of the art business hotels in China I found this one a bit 'strange'.
the rooms aren't as modern as many other hotels and the staff don't seem to be as efficient.
Food is OK but not as good as I've had elsewhere and although the safari theme is probably great for the tourists it wasn't really relevant to a business traveller.
Quite a long way from GZ centre so allow plenty of time in a taxi!
I'd go back with the family but not on business.
Conference facilities were a little dated and service was just average.

We stayed for two nights recently while visiting the safari park and the circus and enjoyed our stay. The rooms were spacious but perhaps a bit dated and tired, nothing too much to worry about though. The bathroom was clean but had a funny sliding door serving both the shower and the toilet, meaning both doors could not be closed at the same time. Our bathroom also had a slight sewer smell to it which seemed to disappear after the bathroom was cleaned.

Service at Chimelong hotel was great and they brought in small cuddly tiger toys and fresh fruit every day. Breakfast was VERY busy regardless of going in early, we had no change getting a table anywhere near the tigers. The breakfast on offer was very good and extremely varied, I have never seen such a spread. We ate at the Butterfly restaurant one evening and it was only ok, very average food.

The hotel lobby bar is very cosy and the service was attentive. It was fun having a refreshing drink while watching the beautiful tigers play - they are taken away during the night which was nice to see, they are obviously very well looked after.

I would recommend the Chimelong hotel for families wanting to visit the different parks over a few days. It is perfect for that and you can easily walk or catch a shuttle bus to all of the parks from the hotel. Getting there from Guangzhou station was rather a different story though and we ended up getting a taxi because there was no bus in sight - we later found out the shuttle buses are only scheduled for when the HK trains come in, but no one told us this whilst booking.

Stayed during fair time and a public holiday, so although a bit busy, not really a problem. Staff could not have been more helpful and were very friendly. If you wanted a quiet breakfast, you just had to get there early. The breakfast was among the best I have ever had. Butterfly restaurant also excellent. Spacious rooms and spectacular architecture. The circus is a must-do- awesome experience but don't go to the safari park on a busy day.

Stayed here with my wife and 2.5 year old son. The hotel has accomodating service and friendly environement for kids. We ate at a few different restaurants in the hotel and had positive experience. I would come back again.

Good hotel to stay at to 'escape' GZ. Must do's with the water park, circus, and a monster Golf Driving Range. Restaurants are good mix of informal and also a bit more formal.

Japanese restaurant is a but pricey.

Breakfast is good for Chinese hotel but a bit of a zoo. Early is best before it gets too busy.

Huge resort complex, targeted obviously for families on holidays so if you're traveling on business which I was, you will not find peace and quiet after a full day of work. Breakfast was hectic, screaming parents, running kids not just in restaurants but also along the halls and at night. The staff was great, helpful, spoke English and efficient. The complex was clean, the rooms huge, had complimentary water and fruits daily.

Chimelong always has its charm. This being our 2nd visit and we still loved every bit of it. Rooms are reasonably large and very well maintained. Frequent shuttle services to all possible points of entry to Guangzhou is very useful. Staff in general very friendly and willing to help. Swimming pool is huge and clean. Highlight of stay would be nearby theme parks. We were pleasantly surprised with priority given to hotel guests in a few of the water park rides. Minimart has drinking water and other sundry items for daily consumption
Only one disappointment was with finding veg food. A single option in the room service menu, very expensive and poor quality.
