In the centre of Guangzhou, the Tiyu Xilu and Zhujiang New Town subways are both 10 mins walk away in either direction. Got to the hotel by subway from the airport to Tiyu Xilu.There are loads of the best shopping malls in Guangzhou (Teemall and Grandview and Onelink Mall) open til late near Tiyu (West) Xilu and Tiyu (East) Donglu.They house all the action (10 yuan by cab or walk it). Theres many types of diff cuisines close by. Cabs stop right in front of the hotel and it took us 10 minutes and 24 yuan to get to the Pazhou Canton Fair, although the subway is just as easy to take, costing us 6 yuan.
The hotel has 24 hour 7-Eleven and Family Marts downstairs, as well as an absolutely fantastic, highly recommended western bar/restaurant called Covent Garden in the square of a set of the apartments that took us back to London! We went there regularly.
The rooms in this hotel are very spacious and clean. Bathrooms are a great size, kitchenettes have washing machines, fridge and microwaves. Internet connectivity in the room is free and great. There is a big sofabed that we lazed around in. Few different english channels on tv. very comfortable bed.
Drawbacks are the pillows, too soft or thin. Its hard to communicate with staff, we used the Google Translate app. They charge 30 yuan a day for plates and cutlery. Apart from that we were very happy with the room rate and location and are staying there again when we return to Guangzhou in a few days time!
