“Value but there are trade-offs”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

This hotel is close to a client so I thought I would try it out, primarily because the room rates are about a third of the usual big chains. I was only staying for one night so had no real expectations other than low price and basic standards. This turned out to be better than most 3 star hotel's in China. First it was quite clean and had fairly modern design in the rooms. The WiFi was free, which nowadays is a real plus. The bed was classic China, hard as a rock, but I seemed to sleep well, despite the tendency of locals to feel hotel passageways are speaking platforms for raucous kids. Nice shower facilities and even a few English language channels. Language is an issue. I have fairly basic Cantonese so I could get by, but this could be an issue. What was nice was the sheer friendliness of the hotel staff when a "gwai loh" (foreigner) walked in. All very pleasant and helpful. There are good restaurants here but you would need a local to guide you. Guangzhou is dim-sum-ville so if you are there make sure you fit this into your morning breakfast plans.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window facing the main road, just for a bit more natural light

The hotel's name is a misnomer. Only a couple of staff on the reception area can speak English but they can't even comprehend what they are saying. The hotel's restaurant offers delicious food. Mostly and always crowded. But again, no one speaks English. This hotel must never be advertised to foreigners if they can't put English speaking staff. The coffee shop's staff on the ground floor is rather not too tourist friendly. The rooms are okay and staff manning the floors are friendly.

I think the mattresses may be made out of cardboard. Beware some rooms have no windows - but they do plaster an extra large poster of some cottage scenary as replacement for a view. And, i wouldnt allow my feet direct contact with the carpeting in the room though. The staff are effiecient, and the 3rf floor hotel restaurant offers wonderful dim sum and is usually packed on the weekends.

  • Liked — the hotel restaurant
  • Disliked — its old and not well maintained
