“Avoid the Wharton”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2008

If you DO NOT care for room temperatures unchangeably above 25 Celsius, dark rooms with small windows, slow internet, shutt-down aircons in Feb, a 'suite' with clean floors, hygenically prepared food (4 out of 7 got ill for days while only staying and eating in the 2 hotel restaurants, english understanding (!) roomservice, any facility for small children (i.e. for our adoption group), or shops within walking distance,
BUT if you however DO LIKE to pay western prices for Chinese pseudo-luxury with a marble ceiling reception, daily Chinese weddings, wait for taxis to arrive, smoking Chinese business men during breakfast and staff without a clue on basic expectations of western travellers, you should absolutely book this place. Otherwise avoid it! (22/2/08)

  • Liked — great marble lobby
  • Disliked — Hotel facilities are bad for your health (foodwise as well as room air quality and temperature)

An international hotel with a chinese edge. getting by in other languages can be a slow job, but people are helpful and the rooms are nice and clean. The hotel had lots of western couples looking to adopt chinese babies when I was there, everyone was treated well. The restaurants left a bit to be desired, the main buffet was the best way to eat, and even then had a few surprises for westerners

  • Liked — the local beer :)
  • Disliked — the hotels chinese breakfast

Nanning is one of the cleanest provincial capitals in China (no industry) and the hotels also generally better value. The Guangxi Wharton was suprisingly relaxed and comfortable - good large swimming pool, better than average English skills. Rooms on the 6th/7th floor showed signs of humidity causing deterioration (eg spotty carpets) but the business rooms on the 17th floor are well-equipped.

We stayed at the Wharton while in Nanning adopting our daughter. We had a wonderful experience there. We traveled with a goup of 8 other adopting families, and were able to stay all on the same floor. The hotel staff was very helpful and met all our needs, even our special needs as new adoptive parents.

Our room was very comfortable, with comfortable beds and a good bathroom...the most important parts of a hotel room! The breakfast buffet was very good - we easily filled up with lots of Chinese and American-type breakfast foods. But the best place to eat at the Wharton is the Chinese restaurant on the lower level - a sort of cafeteria where you can get all kinds of delicious local foods. Sorry, I can't remember the name of the restaurant! We never ate dinner in the American restaurant at this hotel - what's the point, when you can get delicious Nanning-style fried noodles and wonderful soups, either eaten in the restaurant or taken back to the room. The prices were incredibly cheap, especially for such quality.

The Wharton was farther from the city center than I would have liked. But it's in a very attractive location: right on the river and near a green park. It's fairly quiet and peaceful there. We did a lot of walking across the bridge and in the park. Lots of people were out walking - it was very warm, even in November, and I always felt safe walking around in the evening.

I would definitely stay here again.

Order a bowl of wonton soup to your room for aprox. $3.50 and you will not be sorry. It's more than enough for two, more than a dozen large wontons made fresh several days a week. If you have a new adopted baby, she will love it too. A great dinner when you are tired after a long day. Warning, you will be less than thrilled about American returant wonton soups after the Wharton.

Nanning....I stayed at the Guangxim Wharton Hotel in December. It's a new hotel located inside a very nice park and right next to a river. I jogged ever day along the river which was nice. They have a very nice American style breakfast buffet which is included in the price of your room. I also stayed downtown, but I found the area to noisy and congested. The price at the Wharton was about 75.00 a night and the rooms were extremely nice and clean....
