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.
