I've stayed here a lot. But the hotel is visibly tired and needs both a management overhaul as well as refurbishing. On my first stay, the shower did not function correctly. The knob that diverts water to the overhead spray had come apart. On checkout the manager offered me another room. Duh?? How does that work. Breakfast quality is inconsistent....

The hotel is very clean, the staffs are friendly, also available English speaking staff. The Hotel is also very convenience, 7-11 just near by, park with street foods in the evening, also near MTR Panyu station. If you are going to Chimlong parks it is ok but far from city proper. Hotel breakfast is great. If given a chance to...

So nice of my company to place me in luxury hotels as I travel - it is a great way to meet people and feel comfortable. China has its own style - lots of impressive chairs with Do NOT Sit signs just like Granny's house. The breakfast buffet has something for everyone. The water is HOT and great for a...

Mega building, Mega decoration, Mega branding, Nothing helps when the Staff handling basics of Hotel stay cannot connect, handle, understand the Customer. Forget being polite, even if they were normal, would have made good difference. Never again I shall return to this Hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel around 10 times now. It is relatively large, clean and central. The rooms and bathrooms are always in good condition. The hotel does seem to suffer from humidity and damp (not terrible but noticeable) particularly when the weather is very hot and humid. Sometimes the aircon needs persuasion. Breakfast is a pretty extensive spread...

This hotel was a very pleasant surprise in Panyu. The hotel is probably a four start with a five star ambience. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. I recommend trying the massage center. They give a very nice massage of 60 minutes and hotel guests receive a 20% discount which is b=nice but is offset by the 15% service charge,...

I normally stay Marriott China hotel in downtown Guangzhou. This time tried Royal Marina Plaza, to have starting point next morning from east side of Guangzhou, to avoid traffic jams going to Shenzhen next morning. Well what shall i say: about the only good thing about the hotel is that it is located to big Panyu square, where there is...

The hotel location is nice as there is a large square in front of the hotel with a lot of activity to watch. The rooms are nice, but the service is average. They gave me room, which was already occopied, so it was embarrassing for me and the guest already in the room, when I opened the door. I did...

Quite an old hotel that was probably quite luxurious in its day. It has a 7-Eleven attached to it and some mediocre cafes and restaurants nearby but it's quite a distance from the centre of Guangzou so a good taxi ride away, assuming the taxi can find the hotel in the first place.

Hotel is located far from the city centre. But the rooms are very spacious and bang for the buck. Breakfast spread was very good. Had an unpleasant incident in the hotel but I must congratulate the management for resolving it amicably and fast. There is lot of walking involved as each floor has 80 plus rooms. So if you have...
