Where to Find Two-Star Hotels in Guangzhou
Much of Guangzhou’s two-star accommodation puts you in the mainly residential Yuexiu District, which is also very much Guangzhou's cultural centre. The surprisingly spacious two-star apartments or hotels take you to the heart of life in downtown Guangzhou, giving you easy access to peaceful inner city parkland at Liuhuahu Park and Yuexiu Park, the joys of street food and window shopping on Shangxiajiu Commercial pedestrian street and short walks to hop on Guangzhou’s metro for exploring further afield.
What to See near Guangzhou’s Two-Star Hotels
With over half a mile of Chinese and western shops, Shangxiajiu Commercial pedestrian street is a wonderful place to acclimatise after checking in at your two-star hotel. Try out some of Guangzhou’s best dim sum in the street’s restaurants or try China’s take on MacDonalds. Then head to the nearby Hualin Temple, one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Guangzhou, where, for a very small entry fee, you can marvel at the 500 unique gold-painted arhats. Surrounded by these characters who reached nirvana, you’ll enjoy a sense of calm before heading back into the hustle and bustle of Guangzhou.
For more calm and Chinese culture, take the efficient metro to Yuexiu Park, the largest park in Guangzhou and home to the magnificent Five Ram Statue. While you’re there learn about Guangzhou’s fascinating 2,000-year history through the ancient artefacts in Zhenhai Tower’s Guangzhou Museum.
Also with many two-star places to stay nearby, the Baiyun District has the spectacular backdrop of Baiyun Mountain, also known as White Cloud Mountain thanks to the clouds around its many peaks. Hop on a cable car to Maoxing Ridge for far-reaching views of the city, or explore the beautiful Nengren Temple or the Guangzhou Collection of Inscribed Stone Tablets both set in the mountain's lush green parkland.
