“2nd stay this year for Canton Fair”
Reviewed 20 November 2011

This was my 2nd stay this year and used as base for the Canton Fair. Once again rooms were really nice, big and clean.


If i had to complain then the issues would be (although not too important). Room had full interent connection (free) which is essential when on business. Staff very nice although language barrier is an issue. I would have expected more of the staff to have a bit more English understanding as most guests are western, but maybe rest of year its not. Anyway, managed to get accross everything in the end. Would recommend the hotel and would stay again for canton.

* This time the buses came back alot later than last year which is fine until the last day when you might be catching a flight and 5:30 is a little late but taxis are plentiful and cheap so not a massive issue
* Only one/two English TV channels, and believe me you get fed up of HBO channel after about 30 minutes!!! Stayed in other hotels where they have 4 or five (national Geo ect) which is better but again, had plenty to do so not a biggie.
* If you want to go out on evening or meet friends then its going to be a taxi journey as the hotel is quite out of the way. definatley not walkable to Canton fair or any shops/restaurants either really.

Oh and just got to say - i hate the airport at Guangzhou. pssibly the worst organised, crummiest airport ever :)

stayed there for one night, got a good offer on latestays.com for the cheaper twin room. it was on 4th floor, facing the highway. bit of noise but it wasn't really a nuisance. the room was spacious enough, tv had a couple of english language channels. there was a broadband cable, didn't try it though.

now to the main grievances, beginning with inconvenient location:
on the map it looked like this was a walking distance away from GZ east station -- well, it was possible but not exactly convenient. the hotel is basically on the wrong side of a highway when coming from the station. basically, this is not so convenient from gz east station. if that's a priority consider going elsewhere. it wasn't easy to get a cab from the hotel either, always a 5-10min wait.

..and continuing with the place falling apart:
toilet broke down in the middle of the night and i had to call housekeeping. they appeared promptly. cover of the bathtub draining hole fell off while bathing. that's not a big thing but it added to the feeling of the place falling apart.

misc:
one out of five staff on duty at the reception desk spoke any english. it was all very inefficient. they took multiple copies of passport at different times, etc. check-in took almost 20 mins not including waiting time. same with checking out. there was no lobby bar, and the hotel restaurant closed early.

not sure what "ramada" brings to this hotel, it wasn't apparent.

on the bright side, Winson the concierge was really helpful!

Everything is here what you need. The trainstation is nearby and the city you can easily do with taxi.
The price is best on internet do not book at the counter is more expensive.
Very nice lounge and swimmingpool.

I stayed here one night for business. My first impression was good as the bellboy from the hotel met me at the airport and sat and waited with me whilst my colleague made her way to the airport by bus. From there a driver from the hotel tok us direct to th hotel in a very nice car. The entrance of hotel was undergoing refurb but the foyer was bright and very welcoming. That evening I had a brief meeting in the cafe but the lighting was so poor I could not even see my notes. The following morning at the buffet an area adjacent to the cafe was used. The buffet was comprehensive but quite bland (except the mini mangoes which were delicious), but again the area was a bit dim and dreary and we had to share a table due to lack of seating. On the upside, rooms are not so modern but still well appointed with a great bath. Room service was speedy although the staff struggled with english.

Reviewed 15 December 2010

The best part of the hotel was it's locality, just infront of the the Guangzhou east railway station and hardly 4-5 mins walk from there. The Hotel is very very neat and clean with free wi fi facility in the hotel lobby.
The rooms are small but good and cosy. The view from my room in the hotel was of the swimming pool in the back, hence good.
Me being a vegetarian, I really liked the buffet breakfast which was inluded in my stay package as they had quite a few vegetarian dishes as compared to my stay in other hotels in China. The staff has problem with communication as they don't know much english but reception ppl are good in english speaking.
They also provided us with free shuttle bus service to and from the hotel to the east guangzhou railway station. Overall convenient and good for a night's stay.
