I would say is ok compared to everything else. I stayed on standard room (there is executive and presidential too) and the only complaint was the extremely hard bed. I am not used to this kind of matres.

Food is good on the Japanese restaurant. I went to the spa but Chinese massages are not for me, I ended up with all my body aching for 2 days. Lets say not the nice and relaxing massage I expected but a really painful and aggressive (but medicinal :S)

Employees are really nice and will always try to help you, also are dressed funny :)

The reception smelled funny btw.

I stayed at the Royal Marina Plaza during the Easter break. It was close to the Chimelong themed park and just opposite to the Pan Yu Square. The room was spacious and there was a sauna in our bathroom. Everything was up to the usual 5-star standard and we tried the Chinese restaurant which was of good price-range and quality. Our only disappointment was that due to full capacity the breakfast service had to be divided into 3 time slots and looking at the restaurant capacity itself I doubted that even with the 3 time slots it would not be enough. We had to wait outside for some 15 mins before we were let into the breakfast room. Overall a nice stay.

Made another business trip to Guangzhou and this has become one of my favorite hotels when visiting China. The staff is always friendly and you can always get some type of American food in the Patton Cafe if you are not a fan of Chinese cuisine. The breakfasts are very good and they will make you any type of eggs or omelets. My only issue, and it has been the same since my first visit, is the beds. These beds are VERY firm. If you do not like a firm mattress it may not be for you, of course I have never asked if they have other rooms with a softer mattress, maybe next time. Overall it is a very nice place, lots of helpful staff, and close to everything.

Room Tip: Mattresses are VERY firm!!

The hotel is next to Guangzhou Metro Station Line 3 Panyu Square Exit A. It is very convenient.

The lobby style is very nice. The buffet breakfast has many good choices.

This Hotel is recommended when you visit Panyu.

I would like to give this 3.5 stars, not 3, but also not 4 stars. This is a nice place to stay for business travelers. The breakfast has alot of american choices, to include omelets and waffles, along with many chinese breakfast choices. The hotel itself is very nice with any amenity you need. The staff have always been more than accomodating at any requests I have made and the housekeeping has always been very good.

I have stayed here at least 5 times in the past and the sevice and food has always been good, never disappointing.

The only complaint I have, and the reason for taking away one star, is the bed has always been very hard. I tell people when I get home that the beds really feel almost like a board. I know that sounds bad but the mattresses are VERY FIRM. All of the times I have stayed here the beds are all the same, no matter if it was a king, queen, or double. One nice thing is that you do have a choice of pillows, about 5 different varieties.

Overall this is a nice hotel and great for a busines traveler. The internet access is pretty good and I have had very few instances of being disconnected. It is a little slow at times but overall the connection is not too bad.

I began staying at this hotel at the recommendation of a vendor 5 to 7 years ago. Large clean rooms, across the street from the subway station, 15 minute ride to the exhibition hall and a very short cab ride to downtown Panyu, Not a hot spot for the night life but only a short cab ride to the bar districts. Most of the staff speaks passable english and they do offer cook to order breakfast. There are a couple of cafes in the same building.
