Stayed here end of August 2011. Room spacious. Lobby is on the 4th floor but no big deal. Perfect location. No need to go else where for your shopping needs. A long stretch of shops right outside the hotel's doorstep. But it pays to take a look at the shops hidden on the side streets too. You'll never know what you'll discover. As for us, we're able to buy local fruits that were in season at that time. Plenty of local restaurants around the hotel too. When your feet gets tired of walking so much around the area, there's a spa just in front of the hotel.

This is my 5th trip to Guangzhou and my 3rd stay in this hotel. I love the place especially for the convenience for shopping and meals. The entrance to the hotel is very subdue, but the it is a gem hidden from the hustle and bustle of the city.

This area is considered the "local" flavor because of the lack of international brands, prada, gucci chanel etc. The local stuffs are value for money and one can find lots of bargain.

Food wise is great because there are a few famous restaurant around that will suit various budgets. For the adventurous, local diners are very good.

Ladies, you can get all your personal care in this area for a fraction, i.e. hair wash etc. Be bold and step into the salon. My mum, wife & daughter swears by them!!

The tourist attraction is also a short taxi ride away and I am very happy with this jewel.... Enjoy and hope you find this review helpful.

The duty manager by the name of Sandy was the most impolite person I have ever met in my entire I just told her to give me a better room rate because the rate she gave me was 680 yuan and I usually get it around 388 yuan her reply was " If you can really get this price then I will book it from you "

I ordered a cheese sandwich for my wife in the lobby lounge suddenly from between the tomato and the cucumber exits a small cockroach I mean that's really disgusting even the staff complain that the kitchen is dirty.

On my last day I checked out from the room and decided to wait in the lobby lounge until the car which will take us to the airport arrives, there was some small cake buffet, so my wife decided to eat from it, by the time we reached the airport she got food poising  and that was the only thing she ate that day

Guangzhou is famous for Cantonese cuisine. We went there to eat. This hotel is right in the middle of everything for the young and exciting. We had all meals at the three most famous Cantonese restaurants within 200 yards of the hotel. Rows of historic buildings and busy shops literally by the hotel doorstep, including some very Chinese style simple eateries - delicious, cheap (meal under US$2), fast, and, honestly, could be quite stinky. But then this is China. Show the Chinese some stilton cheese and they will say yucky..

Highly recommended for real travelers and gourmets.

we stayed at king leisure room.. it was a big, clean and nice room. You can try the rice pillow because its nice and feel something different. The location is perfect, near the famous pedestrian street.. be careful if you take taxi because we got fake money for change...

Stayed for one night during the height of summer. The spacious lobby is located a couple of floors up, accessible by lift, which helps to discourage crowds seeking relief from the heat! Our room was suprisingly large and very clean and comfortable. The hotel is centrally located above a bustling pedestrian mall with plenty of restaurants and shops. Only small gripe is that internet is RMB1 per minute (but this is capped per day at RMB200? I don't remember exactly the value of the cap unfortunately). We would definitely stay here again.
