Boutique Hotels in Guangzhou
With its state-of-the-art opera house, a district of chic bars and restaurants and parks filled with art, statues and temples, Guangzhou is a great place to stay in a boutique hotel.
Many of Guangzhou’s boutique hotels are around the foot of White Cloud Mountain, which rises above the city’s skyscrapers. And you’ll also find boutique hotels in the villages off the Xinguang Expressway, both north to the airport and south to Macau and Hong Kong.
Your Stay in a Boutique Hotel in Guangzhou
From soundproofed rooms with memory-foam beds to onsite casinos, spas and pools, Guangzhou’s boutique hotels promise you comfortable stay. You might have views of the mountains, Guangzhou’s striking skyline or be in easy walking distance of some of the city’s world-famous dim sum and Cantonese food, whether from traditional street stalls or fine-dining restaurants with impressive views.
Feast on tender suckling pig and freshly steamed dim sum, or try local favourite stewed snake and crocodile at the legendary Fisherman’s New Village restaurant in Panyu.
Explore Guangzhou from Your Boutique Hotel
There is a considerable selection of four-star boutique hotels near some of Guangzhou’s most intriguing landmarks. Head off the beaten tourist track and visit some of the city’s temples. Visit the 17th-century Hualin temple with its 500 golden arhat statues, then wander around Xiguan, the oldest part of Guangzhou.
Next make your way to Guangxiao to see China’s oldest and largest pagoda surrounded by tranquil gardens and the nearby Six Banyan Trees temple. A short walk away is the Chen Clan Ancestral Hall Folk Craft Museum. Something a bit different, the museum exhibits local arts and crafts dating back hundreds of years.
Hiking and Biking in Guangzhou
Head to Lotus Mountain, one of the top ten attractions in Guangzhou. This ancient stone quarry lined with red cliffs and hidden caves overlooks the Lion River. Or hire bikes at the gates of the Dafushan Forest Park and explore the woodlands on two wheels.
If you enjoy exploring by bike, get a private bike tour of Guangzhou city from your boutique hotel, giving you a unique way to discover China’s third largest city.
