This time, I got a better look around and walked around the hotel a bit after checked in before dinner time. Unless you are looking for a budget hotel at a "budgeted" place in China, you...

Lots of places to eat near this hotel. After staying in many traditional hotels or B&B like hotels in China, it was a great change. Hotel staff friendly and answered...

We stayed here for 9 days and had a lovely stay. The staff were helpful and welcoming. It is situated on a busy but relatively quiet side street, off the main Zhan Qian Road which has a lot of malls and shops on it. Breakfast was ok, but a bit same-y after 9 days, as if you don't fancy Chinese...

Great value for money. Cozy and clean hotel for a pleasant shopping trip in Guangzhou. Friendly, helpful English-speaking staff. Conveniently located. The Guangzhou shopping tunnel is just outside the hotel and so are the various shopping places.

Rooms are very small and glass bathrooms are ok. Breakfast is so so. The area is nice with lot of shopping and dinning...

“It is better to not have one of the very front rooms as the street can get a bit noisy, one of the rooms further back in the hotel would be quieter, and none of the rooms have what can be termed "a view", unless you like street scenes.”
