“Hidden gemin the midst of the computer market”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

The entrance is away from the main road which helps so that people do not use the lobby a meeting point. The lobby is opulent and with a high ceiling, giving it a grand look. Check in was easy as the English speaking were efficient. They issued us a room on the 39th floor but the view was just the street scene.
Our room was large with a mini foyer with the bathroom away from the main room. This was good as I could sleep on when my husband washed up. The beds were comfortable and spacious. However, the room we had, had a stained headroom so that was a downer.
The bathroom had both shower (strong jet of water from the handheld shower head and the overhead rain shower). There was even a small TV & a head rest for us to relax in the bath tub.
The hotel has a good location, near their subway and surrounded by computer warehouses wholesalers. There are interesting side lanes with lots of local flavors. But beware of the heavily laden trolleys zipping around. Trolleys are rented out to help buyers transport their purchases.
Nearby the hotel are some shopping malls with the big & some medium brands. The Conceirge is helpful in giving directions and getting taxis. However my enjoyment of the hotel was marred when one of the staff at the Conceirge charged me too much for the train tickets he offered to purchase for me. Wonder whether it was a real mistake. Just be careful because of the difference rates between the HK dollars and Chinese Yuans... Sometimes prices are quoted in both currencies as there are many visitors from Hong Kong.

Room Tip: Ask for a newer room as I noticed the difference between my friend's room & ours. Also the h...

We booked this hotel some weeks ago we got much lower price.
Great rooms. Clean . Breakfast is very good. Near by railway station.
Every room is suite. I got room with living room sauna, jakuzi, and 2 toilets. Huge cupboard.
I warmly recommend if you get lower price from regular price which is very high.

This hotel is sort of a pretend 4 star hotel. It does not have the frills of a better quality hotel but you can normally get what you want here. There is no swimming pool which seems to have been replaced with a floor of steam and massage rooms. There are simple eating spots about particularly in the shopping malls and the metro that is not that far away.
The hotel does have a slightly funny feel to it probably made more so that its decor seems to suit more of an Egyptian image than a royal Mediterranean !
It's not 5 star but its probably a 3/4. I would suggest that it's a good base if the hotel is not your main reason for being there.

My wife and I stayed here for a couple days and loved every second of it. Food, room, lounge, environment & staff all exceeded my expectations. Its a Five Star hotel in my opinion. I can't wait to go back.

First of all: the website of the hotel is well done! You feel disappointed when you arrive at the lobby.
Rooms are great: spacious, clean and will all the necessary.
Restaurants are nothing special...even low level, in the sense that it is expensive for no taste food, no choice. Breakfast is nothing special.
Gym: unbelieavable. 2 bikes...and that's it.
Nobody in the hotel: how can they survive ?

They make many efforts to make your comfort ok: friendly people etc but then they destroy everything with absurd behaviours: do not ask for late check out ! they would call you many times and look at you like a wierd person and call you in the room several times to ensure you will leave on time. Indeed I left 2 hours before the agreed time because I felt uncomfortable.

So I will not go there again.

Just stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on 29 and 30 Sptember 2012.

It is a 3 star hotel, the most, by international standard. We had a deluxe room on the 37th floor, which is nicely furnished and large. We are happy with the room but we would not return to stay in this hotel mainly because it is located in a lane which is filthy and not lighted up at night. The lane is dirty and is mostly used by the locals to load and unload as well as transporting their goods by pushing trolleys and carts through this lane to the surrounding IT shops. The surrounding is more like a place selling computer and electronic stuff. The lane and the surrounding areas are dirty especially after dark when all the shops are closed.

Breakfast not much variety but sufficient and acceptable. Contrary to what was stated in the website,there is no swimming pool in this hotel. During our stay, the hotel was quite deserted. There were not many hotel guests. Personally I think the room rate is not expensive but yet I would not pay this price to stay in this hotel because of its surrounding environments. I rather have a simple room in a better and cleaner surrounding.

Nearest Metro line 3 Gangding station, which is not more than 10 minutes walk, passing by malls and shops all selling computers and electronic items.

Attractions - Been to a few places such as Chen Clan Academy which has nice architecture. It is just a small ancestral hall which will take you the most half an hour to tour round the place. Take metro line 1 to Chen Clan Academy station. The attraction is next to this station.

Baomo garden - a mediocre man-made garden which is not worth traveling one hour there. Entrance Rmb40. This garden may appeal to their locals but not overseas tourists who have seen much better gardens,, unless you have nothing better to kill your time. The place was very crowded and noisy when we went. Like most attractions in China, the atmosphere is spoilt once the attraction is too crowded, noisy, and not properly maintained. Every thing is man-made, don't expect nice beautiful trees, grass , pond etc, none of that exist. More concrete than nature.

White Cloud Mountain - I would not list this as an attractions for overseas tourists at all. It is more for the local to take a break from the crazy city life in Guangzhou. I spoke to a local tourist at the ticketing office at this attraction. She had just completed her walk at the mountain and highly recommended it. I realized her standard of fresh air and nice is completely different from ours. There is seriously noting much to see, no fresh air, no nice nature, very crowded and noisy when we went. I rather spent the afternoon in my hotel room reading a book or watching tv.

Canton tower - ok to go for a look at this structure and it's surrounding promenade to have an ideal of how the future new CBD of Guangzhou will be.

Stayed at this hotel during our tour of Guangzhou and it was fantastics. The views of the city from the upper floors is amazing. The facilities in the rooms are really nice, Internet, furnishing is first class. We ate mostly out of the hotel but the breakfast was great. Certainly a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room beyond 40th floor for best views.
