As a business trip and somehow that's the only one choice we could choose, we booked many rooms (please forgive me can't tell you how many because some reasons), but the bill was big enough. RMB 1480++, enough to stay at the world's top brands hotels in the downtown. Here should not be your choice at this rate.
Firstly, mind the hotel's karaoke. In fact, it's a typical chinese nightclub. At night, don't be surprise to see a beautiful lady accompany with a drunk gentleman in the hotel.
In terms of the location, it's actually a suburban of Guangzhou, far away to the city center. Very far away to get to the nearest metro station on foot, no any convenient/public facilities near the hotel. The location was just "Bad" if you want to get to the downtown.
The entrance was quite small, not grand, easy to skip it if you drive yourself. The lobby was typical five stars style. However, the corridor through to rooms and elevator lobby were dark, there were plenty of lights to make the environment better.
My room was only BIG, besides, nothing was positively remarkable. Over the whole room, there were only few of lights, it's okay in the daytime, but never at night. Especially for the working table, if you insist to work at that level of lighting at night, it's gonna to hurt your eyes! The balcony was useless, because the door was locked. Furthermore, I found one lady's hair on my bed~~~~
The room equipped a coffee machine, sounds good? Haha, so what! I prefer they gave me back the water boiler instead of. The pencil's condition they provided for clients to write quick notes was disappointed, only two papers were provided.....The cushion on the sofa were covered by plastic, feeling very bad.
The breakfast buffet was totally not recommended, RMB 128++/per person. Definitely unreasonable, the foods' quality, taste and service, HORRIBLE. Even for Chinese traditional dishes.
The staffs were know nothing, never met someone could tell you a certain answer for your inquires. Only keep telling you to how much will be charge for this service, what's the restriction, or even directly ask you to give them a tip when you paying the bill. It's really really crazy!!!!
