First room was heavily smoked in. Next two rooms had heavy mold damage die to a leaky ac system (fourth floor rooms 1445 and 1447). They did upgrade us to the tenth floor and even gave us one free breakfast (two of us though). Breakfast was mix of Asian and western but if I paid full price I wouldn't be happy. Thankfully I drove to gz otherwise I can understand other reviewers about the distance from anything and lack of cheap food nearby. Also heads up of gz traffic in general.... it sucks.

"Great hotel, historic location far from downtown"
I was impressed and pleased with this hotel...I am also surprised by the online criticisms of it..staff were friendly and room service and cleaning services were perfect every day...yes the beds are hard (very firm) but this is part of the Chinese experience.. not negligence..buffet food for the western breakfast was a little remiss but still very, very good, lots of variety and fresh fruit..I was given the room I requested and it was large and accommodating in every respect..I was very happy with my experience here and would recommend this hotel to anyone ..online research confirms the hotel is not close to downtown but taxis in China are very cheap so it is not a major concern :-)

This is a nice hotel with good facilities and food. Baiyun is a little out the way so there is nothing to do except leave. Webber the Food and Service Manager helped me find something to do with my down time in the evenings which was great but there is no one to talk too and nothing to do...

Very excellent facility to stay at. House keeping was great, always provided with what I needed. Provided free breakfast each morning, and room service, and message therapy available on site. Great place to stay at.
"Hotel fine but Expedia didnt have NEW hotel name. "
Expedia should include Chinese character name on all hotels in China. Fortunately I have some Chinese because if I hadn't, there is no way I would have found this hotel as its name was changed (and other travel companies had the new name but not expedia).

"Comfortable, safe, pretty, not close to subway, "
What I enjoyed was the bed- great ambiance but could hear people in the hall and the traffic noises outside were loud... I thought the window was open.... it was not. Slept well anyway This hotel did not have many tourists because it was away from the usual tourist activities- the price was great for the facilities.
The hotel front desk were helpful and could speak reasonable English.
They helped me with getting taxis because this hotel is 10 minute drive from the subway. (The limitation of not being able to use public transport was a negative).
The Baiyun district is named after the Baiyun Mountain. Baiyun means White Cloud, inspired by the sight of clouds that circle the peak of the mountain during the late spring rainy season. A peaceful resting place from the hustle of the big city, Baiyun mountain features relaxing parks and scenic areas. Yuntai Garden overflows with flowers and trees.
