“A Gem of a Hotel”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

I stayed for 2 days in this gem of a hotel in May 2013 with my family. We wanted a clean, modern hotel with a decor which would remind us of old China. We were not disappointed! What we saw in the official photos was what we got. Spacious comfortable rooms, clean modern amenities, a warm elegant ambience reverberating with old Chinese overtones, a well-manner staff (I could speak some Putonghua which helped a lot) and free Wi-Fi throughout our stay.

There were nice touches like his and hers bedroom slippers and interesting Chinese art on the walls.

My room had a small balcony. Not much of a view but a great idea if you were a smoker and craved for “fresh air”! Rightly, the hotel was very particular about fire safety.

The breakfast which came with the room was very basic and was served in a bare dining hall. However at the other end of the floor was the “real” restaurant which was well-appointed with great dim sum. It was well worth paying for a taste of real Sunde dim sum rather than take the bland breakfast inclusive in the room rate.

Just a stone’s throw away was the famous Qing Hui Yuan, a not-to-be missed classical garden villa. Adjacent to the garden villa was an interesting street featuring a shop selling incredibly beautiful and authentic silk embroidery and another shop selling traditional Shunde biscuits and snacks.

Minus points were few. One was the incomprehensible practice of charging guests for using the non-woven laundry bag. At check-out I was given the option of unloading the laundry bag which I had used to stuff my dirty laundry in, make a payment for the disposable bag or exchange the laundry bag for another non-woven carrier bag made of the same material as the laundry bag, for free. Quite bizarre practice indeed.

Another negative point was that the check-in lobby was on Level 3. The route to this check-in lobby was poorly marked. I would have been quite confused had I not been directed to the lifts and told to press Level 3 by others.

This hotel name, “Xiang Yun Sha”, referred to the unique and exquisite rubbed silk, native to this part of Foshan. Although it was an appropriate and beautiful name, I wish they would give this lovely hotel a simpler name which would be easier for visitors to remember and pronounce!

My stay in Shunde was so enjoyable in large part due to the comfort and quiet ambience which this hotel provided. I would definitely recommend Xiang Yun Sha!

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony if you wish to smoke.

A new hotel in Foshan Shunde district located next to Dalian walking street or opposite New World Hotel in Shunde Dalian area.

Room is big and comfortable with wooden furnishing while bathroom has separate shower area and bathroom for certain room. There is a free WiFi in the room with individual router. Breakfast is good with selection of dim sum but you are only limited to 2 free dishes of dim sum/person.

This is definitely good choice 4 star hotel if you in Shunde area for business visit.

You won't know there a hotel behind a shopping mall, not a big hotel but once you go in, you will see all red wooden furniture, marble table, a nice lobby lounge...if you are tried with western style hotel, this is a wonderful choice. There room is very spacious with chinese furniture and western sofa but they match perfectly. If you go down there's a small shopping mall but not fully open as this is a pretty new hotel. Right next is the "walking street" with all small shops around, also local snacks and you can spend the whole night. It's a shame that their swimming pool is not open until May or later.
