Excellent hotel

Service from reception and concierge are outstanding. Room is huge: 60 sm.
I only stayed for 1 night, but I wished I could have stayed more. Concierge service is particularly wonderful, way beyond expectation.

Good location, small rooms and expensive food.

The location is excellent.
Overall, we were happy visitors. The Shamian Island location was good as we were able to visit many places with this central location. Our only concern at the hotel was the price of meals as it was way too high for mid level earning visitors. Before coming to White Swan we stayed the Holiday Inn Shifu. The rooms were great, location good, food at the hotel was very reasonable.

Can I Wait

As usual very attentive service in a truly great hotel that enjoys the best location in Guangzhou. Sad to hear that the hotel is closing for 18 months to undergo a make over but look forward to being one of the first guests to enjoy the new offering.

A wonderful hotel experience!

Location, staff, executive club
We visited the White Swan on mid autumn festival evening. The hotel was about to close for major renovations. It is a splendid hotel with great staff and facilities. After ther renovation it will surely be one of Asia's best hotels.The executive level provided great food, beverages and breakfast and our suite was beautiful. We relaxed and enjoyed our visit and look forward to another visit after the renovations.

Awesome location

Great Location, Big rooms, good views, quiet pool
Loved where this hotel is situated. You can potter out from the hotel down cobbled streets. Its definitely 5 star but a little dated. This however did not detract from our stay. The room was spacious with a great bathroom. Cons, the bed was very hard and the buffet breakfast was poor quality.

Comfortably appointed hotel

Comfortably appointed hotel and at great location. Once of the better property in the area and the staffs are very helpful and polite. However, found it misleading that you need to pay extra for non-smoking room as it was never mentioned in the web site or anywhere in the booking. We were told that we need to pay extra for non-smoking rooms which is a surprise and inconvenience. Overall, had an enjoyable stay and would be keen to stay again after the renovation.

Great hotel for sightseeing

Quiet hotel. beautiful interior. friendly staff
This is hotel has a beautiful interior and many different kinds of cuisines. The food is kind of expensive compare to outside, but it's different good. Room is good size, but bed is not as comfy as I was expecting. Overall, it's a great place to stay if you're visiting. Staff is very friendly.
