A big room, good value, easy Metro access”
Large room. Attentive staff. Close to Metro
The staff speaks very little English, but what they lack in language skills they make up with enthusiastic service. If you have Google Translate on your phone, you won't have any problems. They have a really good Dim Sum restaurant on the 3rd floor, and for those that need comfort food, coffee shops, McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut, all are available within a short stroll. Centrally located Metro station on two train lines that will get you anywhere you want to go quickly, including the Pazhou Convention Center for the Canton Fair (3 stations). Rooms and bathrooms are large by the standards of any hotel. The building is a bit old, but in very good condition. Housekeeping staff and security are on each floor 24 hours a day, and they can't seem to do enough for the guests. I'm not used to a staff that is so competent, attentive and friendly. Very good internet and WiFi. The sidewalk in front of the hotel from the afternoon until late night is covered with street vendors selling lots of stuff. It's a convenient, comfortable and easy to stay at hotel.A short walk from the hotel is a coffee shop named SECONDCUP. I made it my business office while there. Good internet, good coffee, the staff speaks English, and the chairs are padded and oh so comfortable. For those used to Pizza Hut in the USA, you've got to try the one here. It's 50% Pizza Hut and 50% French restaurant. You won't believe the menu.

Good Location”
Quiet surroundings, easy acces to metro station, and easily look for food around
The hotel located in a very good location, easy access to metro station, can easily search for good food around and also nearby shopping mall. It's acceptable hotel with reasonable price and the hotel provided a large room but the hotel room is old, however it's clean enough to stay. Besides, the night market just along the roads from the nearest metro station toward the hotel.

Basic, nothing to write home about. Given it was a last minute decision to squeeze a visit to Canton Fair during my Factory inspections, I chose this hotel from Agoda, but it was not up to standard and very expensive for the type of hotel it was.

Location and convenient connection to other parts of city including Airport
Generally acceptable hotel. Bed was rock hard. First room had very noisy aircon and asked for a room change which I was immediately entertained. Breakfast was Chinese style only we are directed to a dedicated corner set up for hotel guests (less selection and shared tables compared to the Ala-carte area of the restaurant). Nevertheless I liked that it is located on Number 3 line with connections to Airport, Canton Fair and Shopping areas of Tianhe and Beijing Road.

I would like to recommend to all travelers for Pazhou exhibition center. This hotel is 100m away from metro station Kecun. 2 station away to reach Pazhou exhibition center or if you have a lots for carrying stuff, less than RMB10 cab is available for you. This hotel is clean and silent at night. But, the only thing is the air-cond is not warm during winter seasons.

Matress is hard but for me it's an advantage - slept very well. The hotel is nearby the metro station running 2 lines. The only drawbacks are: staff speaks very poor English, no tourists in the area so don't expect English menu in cafes nearby, breakfast is very limited Chinese food only. Overall good place
