“Lonely Planet calls the hotel 'The' place to stay in Guangdong.”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

Beautiful old hotel in a really lovely part of the city of Guanzhou. The Shamian Island is an enclave of old Victoria style buildings where, in the 19 century, British and French were permitted to live and work. Stately trees and parks surrounded by canals set the scene for fine dining and safe evening strolls. If you like old buildings and an excellent Western breakfast buffet this is your spot. You'll meet all the westerners here. Our rooms were about $150/nt making it very expensive for the city.
Good access to the metro just across one of the pedestrian bridges. We were excited to find we could take the Metro around the city and also to Foshan where we went to see the amazing Nanfeng Ancient Kiln: 2 early Ming dragon wood fired kilns still in operation.

Room Tip: I read about the east wing vs the west wing and found that all have been renovated now.

Stayed here for the mother's day weekend.

PROS
* Great price $500/night including buffet breakfast which was good (egg & noddle station available).
* Wonderful bed, I slept like a baby and excellent selection of pillows available. This is the hotel for a great nights sleep.
* Plush towels, robes, slippers
* Reasonable room service prices
* 10 mins to metro "Huangsha" exit D but you need to use a pedestrian bridge with plenty of stairs so taking luggage will be difficult.

CONS
Freezing uncontrollable air conditioning and the robe in my room upon checkin was dirty & smelly. Called housekeeping and it was replaced with a fresh one immediately.

We are so pleased that we chose to stay in a hotel in Sha Mian. This is a beautiful littel island with beautiful parks, European colonial style buildings, and lots of cafes, bars and very good Chinese restaurants. Walking by the river through the little lanes between those magnificent buildings is like a journey back to the 1930s. The Pearl River is dotted by pretty neon lights and caressed by the gentle breeze. It's just so peaceful and romantic, so different from the rest of the city.
Tao Ran Ju does best Cantonese cuisine, and there is a fabulous Thai restaurant just around the corner of the western wing of the hotel. OUr highlight is a dinner at the nearby seafood market, where we bought live seafood: scampi, prawns and crab from the wharf side stalls, and took them to the restaurant for cooking and serving. It's such a great feast with very good value for money. The whole wharf is occupied by hundreds of such stalls, and there is no shred of fishy smell - this tells you how fresh the seafood is. Literally straight out of the tank.
The hotel is a five-minute walk from the Huang Sha metro station. From there, you could easily access many tourists sites. Highly recommend Zhu Jiang Xin Chen (Zhu Jiang New Town). It's on Line 5, this is the new financial centre /business centre of Guangzhou, with numerous skyscrapers and great department stores with fabulous casual dining restaurants serving up cuisines from all over China and Asia. Guang Bai Depertment Store is next to the Friendship Store, and at the 5th floor of Guang Bai you will be spoilt of choices of where to eat. As a Shanghainese, i got a serious fix for my Shanghainese food craze. At Shang Yi Long, we had fabulous Shanghainese dumplings, noodle soup, fish and vegetables. They were seriously authentic Shanghainese food.
Apparently the WEst Wing of the hotel is newly renovated. We stayed in a Superior Room. It's a bit small but the linen and towels are all of high quality, and the bed and pillow are very comfortable. It's surprisingly quiet from the street. Double glazed windows cut out the noise, I suppose.
The breakfast is pretty good for its price, and caters well for both western and Chinese tourists. My husband is a European and I am a Chinese, and we both enjoyed it. We will be back to Sha Mian again. We will still stay in this hotel if there is no better ones. STrangely, there is no luxurious hotels in Sha Mian, but we love this neighbourhood and just want to stay there again if we are in Guangzhou again. The only problem of this hotel is the terrible smell of cigarettes in the corridor. but hey, we don't stay in the corridor for long. I just held my breath when i walked past it. The room is perfectly fine without any smells. If you can afford it, go for an executive floor and i trust it's smoke free there.

Room Tip: Executive Floor would be better. It's smoke free, and may have a balcony. But Superior room is p...

Spent total 5 nights in 2 weeks stay in China. I stayed at the west building.
Rooms are nice, modern, the only neg. side is the wooden windows with single glazing which is pretty noisy in the evening and early morning.
The more luxurious rooms have a nice balcony where you can sit and have a drink. The room decoration is very nice as well, no complaints.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Taxi from the airport is around RMB 115 and takes almost 45 minutes.
Breakfast buffet is nice, lot of choice, but for dinner the restaurant is not that great.
For Dinner there are many nice places on Shamian Island to chooce from like Lucy's Bar. Good food at affordable prices.
The area is great for an evening walk, many tourists from the west and locals too.
Overall i would rate this hotel as very good.

Room Tip: Choose the west building, it's smaller, no facilities except small bar and restaurant, but bette...

We stayed here during for the April 2012 canton fair. A group of four, two rooms.
The location of the hotel is probably the best feature it has! The staff is really helpful, although they have trouble speaking (or maybe pronouncing) English, but you can manage to communicate.
They had a shuttle for the fair, and a registration counter in the lobby, which was very helpful, as you won't waste time registering at the fair's entrance.
Price quite expensive (as expected) during the period.
Breakfast buffet is the standard four star fair.
