This is a nice hotel but little outside the city center. Some of the staff was very nice including Watson at concierge, James at reception, and Sunny at the Lobby lounge. I took the subway to experience the local life and it is only 5 minute walking from the hotel. I had a riverside room with a nice view so no complaints. Initially there was a little noise but the hotel staff worked hard to fix it and they did.
The staff bent over backwards to make us happy!! We first had a smoking room, so we had to move out of that one, although the floor plan and view were Great! (clean and roomy bathroom). But after moving and using the new room it smelled like sewer. So they agreed to move us again!! We were SO happy to get another chance and the room we got was awesome!! So for that we were Very grateful!!
We have a hard time wherever we go because we are vegetarian. But with the super great interpreter Susie hired named Amanda, we had no trouble understanding what was the food made out of. Also Amanda helped us locate vegi restaurants and shopping areas in the city.
I guess we are a bit demanding, but all our needs were met and we were very happy with our stay at this hotel. It was well worth the money!!

Serviced apartment in PWTC which is right next to the Westin Pazhou, which in turn is next door to Area C of the Canton Fair. So location is unbeatable for Fair visitors. Also Pazhou metro station a 5 minute walk away. Nice room. Big bathroom. Kitchen facilities including cooker, microwave and washing machine. There are no restaurants etc in the vicinity but you can eat & drink at the Westin across the road.
Big problem with this room is the cleaniness. I guess because its a serviced apartment (and not a hotel), the standards are quite different. The floor was grubby. It looked clean but you couldn't walk on it bare foot. Same can be said for the bath tub. also, the shower floor was dirty. There was dust & dirt under the bed and dining table.
Also, if you're a business traveller, wifi may be a problem. It was very slow. On my last two nights it was so bad I had to walk over to the Westin with my laptop and use their wifi facilities.
I chose this hotel for its convenient location and its connection with the Guangzhou subway system which I used daily to get around. I room is comfortable enough but lacked intuitive light switches and sufficient electrical plugs that were easy to access. My room included breakfast which has very good selections for their range of guests. This hotel does not have gym.
lives up to 4/5 star rating. Area it is in is not that good, but a shopping centre is about 15 minutes walk away and about 10 minutes walk to subway station. Staff very friendly and doorman works hard to get you a taxi when needed. Also ensures you only get an official taxi, not unregistered or un-metered taxi which will rip you off.
Very convenient to Canton Fair complex, about half an hour by taxi (about RMB 65 ) . Hotel has a courtesy bus to fair leaving around 8:30am and returning around 5:30pm.
Complimentary water available in rooms, and minibar prices very reasonable. Two restaurants, a Chinese one on 4th floor, and western one on ground floor, which also does a good selection of Chinese food. Dinner was excellent, and had a very good variety of both Chinese and western food, including Abalone, crabs, mussels, spit roast lamb, beef, chicken etc., with waiters coming round to tables and carving straight onto your plate. Haagendaz ice-cream and a variety of sweets and fruit also available. Coffee not so good. Breakfast was also good.
A third of the price of similar hotels convenient to Canton fair so all in all a very good stay. Rooms very a good size and very comfortable. Will stay there again if visiting Canton fair area.
South of the Pearl River, the Haizhu district was formerly known as an industrial area, but is now home to some of the most luxurious residential real estate in the city. A campus of Sun-Yat Sen is located in this district. The Huangzhou Wholesale Market offers some of the best bargain shopping in the city for locals and tourists alike.
