Delightful small inexpensive hotel with modern minimalist decor. Stayed here for 2 phases of the Canton Fair. Of course rates were inflated but much cheaper than anything else I was willing to stay in in Guangzhou.

Most of the guests were European -- I think I was the only American. The staff were very pleasant, very helpful and always had a smile on their faces and their English was much better than my Mandarin!

Room was modern, clean and efficient and had a great bathroom and shower. Hallways and rooms reminded me somewhat of a dorm room with Ikea type modern furniture. Coffee maker or should I say hot pot in all rooms and refrigerator in some.

Flat screen TV -- only complaint was that there was very limited English TV -- no CNN and since it was the week before election day in the US, I was craving some world news. Free internet - not wireless but they supply cable in room--one tip: on my first stay cable was just a little too short to be able to relax in bed with my laptop. 2nd visit they gave me longer cable -- it didnt even dawn on me to ask the first time for a longer cable!

Hotel is in old residential neighborhood that was not very interesting but hotel was an oasis in the neighborhood. Probably would have explored more if I wasnt by myself and exhausted from walking the fair.

Restaurant in lobby served great chinese food and there was a lobby lounge where I routinely purchased a beer to take to the room after a long day of walking the Pazhou Complex. The hotel provided a mini-bus shuttle twice daily to and from the fair that was very convenient.

Definitely take one of their cards at the front desk with the chinese address. It is a small hotel and the taxi drivers do not know where it is.

I was very comfortable staying here as a solo traveler and they made me feel like I was coming home every night.

Elan is a lovely, bright, small, modern hotel with very reasonable rates. The beds comfy and the showers are fab.
Unfortunately, I had my pocket picked in Guangzhou and lost all my credit cards. However, without the help of the Elan staff, I don't think I would have achieved anything. From phone calls to the UK, sorting out cash and airline tickets as well as accompanying me to the police station, they were utterly remarkable. Heartfelt thanks.

OK this hotel is only $38USD a night so you can't expect too much. It's in the old part of town and there aren't any starbucks or anything around here. It's close to the watch and handbag market so that's a plus. The rooms are clean but the beds are super hard. I'm not disappointed because of the great price and free internet too.
So if your on a budget this place is pretty good.
