“Its the management and staff that make a hotel........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2012

This hotel has it all, perfect location. Good clean modern rooms. Comfortable King size bed. I had a wide screen digital TV as probably did all the rooms. Canal nearby, river close too, tree lined streets on all sides, good restaurants closeby. I ate at the hotel most days. Food is good. Plenty to choose from, especially lunch and dinner time. Both Hotels are exceptional. One on the east and the other on the west side. There is a useful shop next door that sells drinking water, snacks, beer and most things you would require. Also next door there is a subway restaurant. The food is just like home in Australia. Fresh and priced fairly. The view from my room faced the hwy, hospital and canal. Windows are double glazed so not much noise.
I found it safe to walk outside at night with and without my wife. There are all type of shops on the Island, from gift shops, bottle shops, craft shops to a unique massage parlour. Very professional. The men are massaged by men and women by women. All professional. I even found a catholic church not far from the hotel.
Unfortunately, my wife had a stroke while on holiday and to my amazement the management and staff helped in any way possible, from communicating with the ICU in the hospital, to discounting my room rate and included 3 meals a day not just breakfast. They arranged tickets to return back to Australia. Taxied us to the doctors and airport. They were like family.
Without their help we would not have returned home. That alone should make any guest feel comfortable and at ease that they would be in deed helped in anyway. I give this hotel 5 stars and will re book in future. Thank you all......NO THANKS to the Australian Consul General who did not help us in anyway, no sympathy, nothing....except advise. Big help....not!

Room Tip: We had a first floor room opposite the canal and it was nice.....

The hotel is situated in Shamian, a lush green environment with beautiful colonial architecture buildings next to a beautiful river. The bedroom is quite large, nice and well furnished with nice and large pieces of furniture. The lobby is beautiful and nicely decorated. Staff are quite courteous, though some speak little English, but they will do their best to help you. Bathroom nice and clean. There is a convenient store at the corner. I stayed there for four days only on my way to Vancouver. Taxi from the hotel to shopping centres, Canton tower etc. are not expensive. A stroll around the leafy suburb and along the river is a joy during the day and early evening. A night cruise along the Pearl River is a real delight.

Very nice and clean hotel, the staff were very attentive, beautiful clean and picturesque surroundings. Some nice restaurants close by. Only a short walk to Pedestrian Street shopping area. (I think a must see at night). I would definitely stay there again.

The Hotel was very satisfactory, the rooms (West Building) were modern, clean and comfortable. Staff were always friendly and helpful, the breakfast was also satisfactory with a decent choice and above average quality. The Area is good with historical features and convenience stores nearby including Subway Sandwiches next door. Overall no complaints and would definitely stay here again on any future visit.

Good hotel for China standards. Colonial surrounds and nice park. Starbucks within a couple of mins walk for morning heart-starter. Quiet and well appointed. Hotel restaurant not the best, but a couple of nice ones within a few hundred meters...

Cow and Bridge has great Cantonese food at good price (US$7-12 for a good size plate). Decor was low class
, but clean. Pretty limited drink selections(but I'm an Aussie, so we're used to a pretty extensive range)! Every dish on menu has a picture; very helpful!

Orient express restaurant was fun. French cuisine in a tastefully appointed rail carriage. Pricey, but great atmosphere and food.

Easy walk to spice markets and shopping streets with clothing, shoes, handbags, pearls and jade predominantly. Jade pretty expensive, pearls are very good price if you know what you're doing (pretty simple)!

I have been traveling in China and as you might know is hard to find a Hotel with no smoke odor in the bed and carpet ! I stayed in the Victory West Building, they offer me a Executive room with balcony with breakfast for RMB580, the staff was friendly and they speak good english, the place might not be center, but the area is really nice !

I checked out hotel's WEST building around 7.30 p.m on 21st of July. The lady at reception offered me to order the taxi, because as she said is difficult to get a taxi at this hour. I trusted her also because there is a warning notice on the reception desk that red and yellow taxi are advised because of cheating with 100 Yuan bank notes scam. She asked me to sit down and wait and after she started very nervously calling her taxi. Meanwhile I observed street and there were many taxi passing by hotel, also red and yellow ones. After approx. 20 minutes her taxi arrived. It was blue Hyundai with taxi driver license number 231110. Even there was notice in the car that it is forbidden to smoke, taxi had very bad smell and taxi driver had a box of cigarette at the shelf near the gear stick. He obviously smoke in the car very short time before. Taxi driver tried to start drive with 14 Yuan on the taxi counter ( obiously would like me to pay for the previous drive too) and switched taximeter to start with regular 10 Yuan after three loud protests from my side. Also car is obviously broken , probably clutch. During all the drive to airport there were coming strange sounds from the (probably) clutch so the drive to the airport was very scary.
Taking into account all the circumstances when arrived at the airport I checked the number of the 100 Yuan banknote before I handed over to the taxi driver and also man from the airport trolley service immediately arrived to the taxi so I would have a witness if something would go wrong. My checking banknote before handing over to him obviously made taxi driver nervous and bad mode. He asked me to pay surcharge for highway which I did.

Advise all guests of the hotel to refuse reception call a taxi for them regardless if they leave hotel at night time.
