Near buses, subway, sights on a island of its own”
It’s on the European island which has cool sea breezes, coffee around, and standard colonial style architecture with a garden between roads. westwards is guangzhou’s fishery for seafood restaurants and eastwards is the cultural park for nightly free performances. (Both served by subway) It’s located along the pearl river with lights and sounds if you wish for a night stroll. Southwards heads towards to sea with two islands visible; both the older parts of the city for any culture-seeker.
Nice place with simple breakfast, location fair”
Located in typical tourist spot Shamian Island. I stayed at the West wing, a room with balcony. The view was nice from it. However, it's pretty noisy at night since the door of the balcony didn't block noise well. Probably the east wing would be better. It is around 10-15 mins walk from metro station. There's a shopping mall right next to metro station, where you can have plenty of food choices. Overall it was a nice place to stay.
stayed at this hotel many times will stay here again on my next visit great location
The towels were especially clean. We were not comfortable with the first allocated room, requested a change of room. They acceded. 1 minus point, due to the cold weather outside, they turned on the "Central Aircon" , maybe not even aircon, they tuned it to 25.5 which is unbearable for us. We stayed in room 3508, tge flushing system were not so good. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.
Two Victory hotels - East and West”
First, this hotel has two locations, one block apart. I stayed in the East location, so I can comment only on this site. The complementary breakfast served in the large central atrium was very good - lots of variety for both western and Chinese tastes. It has a small fitness center room open 24/7. The staff were attentive and very helpful. The location is outstanding - a couple blocks walk to the subway along the river with lots of fish to watch on the way. Shamian Island is absolutely beautiful. Across the bridge walking north is the old part of Guangzhou, with lots of windy tree-shaded streets and interesting shopping - HUGE open air seafood market to the east, and to the west are the Chinese medicine, vegetable, and electronics markets. The East location of this hotel needs at least a through cleaning, and soon a full renovation. Guangzhou is very tropical - warm, humid and often rainy, which means mold and mildew. This is the Victory's biggest problem: the mold.
Great stay. ”
All Staff that we met are friendly and helpful. Thanks for helping us to received the Taobao parcel before the stay, I really appreciate it. Walk to 文化公园站 MRT station about 10mins walk is acceptable by exit E and Near 上下九步行街(popular and great place for shopping)by exit D. Overall, enjoyed the stay here.
A little bit of paradise”
Love returning to the victory hotel after a long day at work. Staff are lovely and the location could not be better. Love going for a quiet walk in the early morning and watching people do thei tai chi etc....wouldn’t stay anywhere else.
Clean, convenient and safe hotel”
The environment is one of the safest in the whole of China. Near 2 different MRT stations on different lines. Walking distance to shopping mall, wholesale areas for handphone accessories, clothing, Chinese herbs and is surrounded by many eateries. Highly recommended.
Great hotel, great facilities in an amazing location”
Would highly recommend the Victory Hotel, had a balcony room, the ambiance, the décor, the breakfast, the staff and most importantly the location was all amazing. Made my stay in Guangdong extremely enjoyable, only a short walk to the Metro plus easy to get to walking street where you can walk and eat to your hearts content. Again would highly recommend to wither its family, couple, solo or anyone else, the park ambiance around Shameen Island is the best I have seen in a very long time and the price was very reasonable. 10 *.
Fantastic dim sum in hotel ! Great location ”
Rooms are spacious and comfortable Great location , MRT within 5 mins walking distance Can walk to 上下九街、beautiful to walk around 沙面老街 Fantastic Dim Sun within hotel ( #02) with further discounts for hotel guest of you show your room key card Beds are comfy I walk over to Osotto Nanmei hotel just across the river for my usual spa and massage ... Definitely coming back again
A ver happy experience :)”
I went to Guangzhou with my parents and teenage son for 7 days 6 nights. Did not book this hotel initially because of the reviews I read and the pictures shown are not very enticing. I booked our first 3 nights at another hotel in the Zhujiang River area for the view and location near the train station. During my second day in Guangzhou, I decided to take a chance and book our next 3 nights at this hotel. The arrival experience was already wonderful! The area feels very quaint and peaceful. We were greeted by the bellman and another staff who took down our taxi number and pass us a slip so we can contact the driver if we drop something in the taxi. The lobby is bright, clean and spacious and the rooms are newly renovated, clean and well equipped with clean cups and bedsheets. The bed is soft and firm too. This is really a very pleasant surprise and value for money. The timsum place next to the hotel serves very good food and good value plus the convenience of 7eleven
Good Location, Easy to Get Around To Other Places”
I spent a total of 8 nights there at the Guangdong Victory Hotel. Found the location to be pretty good. Fortunately, I was located in the West wing which made it easy for me to get in and out of Shamian Island by cab. The bridge crossing near the West wing of the hotel made it a convenient reference for a pick up location when I booked taxis via the local taxi booking app Didi Chuxing (滴滴出行). You need a local SIM to use the app by the way. On the downside, it's close enough to the main road that you can sometimes hear car honking from the rooms and it occurs even late at night. Loud enough to notice when I am awake but not when I am asleep. Shamian Island is a relatively scenic historically rich site which made my nightly jogs all the more enjoyable. There are many restaurants on the island and there was a steady hum of activities even late (11 pm) into the night. Felt very safe even when running late at night. A short walking distance away, heading north, you can get to Shang Xia Jiu Pedestrian Street (上下九步行街) in about 15-20 mins, passing through their Chinese medicinal herbs wholesale district. This is their largest retail street and is filled with people, shops and lots of street food stalls. Was able to try many of the street food in the food court on the ground floor of Holiday Inn Shixiu. Also worth trying is to hike up Baiyun Mountain, which is 30 minutes away by taxi. Spent a good 3 hours going up to the highest point and down the mountain and had lunch at the McDonalds located in the Baiyun Mountain grounds. Note that you have to pay 5 RMB for entry for Baiyun Mountain and another 5 RMB to access the peak at Moxing Summit. Walking across the street in 10 mins via a pedestrian overhead bridge, is a large shopping mall, Metropolitan Plaza, where you can find just about everything including restaurants, groceries, clothes and shoes. They even have a Decathlon there which was nice.
Historic hotel in one of Guangzhou's older areas”
The hotel is a bit out of the way due to it's location on a small island, but that's a minor issue. The English speaking staff was helpful, room was nice but on the low end of 4 stars. Quite comfortable and clean with a nice bathroom. The classic neighborhood is well known with several top notch restaurants. I enjoyed walking the island where the hotel is located, a taste of what Guangzhou was like before most of the city was modernized. I enjoyed my stay and recommend this hotel, however on my next visit to Guangzhou I will likely choose a hotel in a more central location.
Fantastic hotel on Shamian Island”
I have stayed at the Guangdong Victory Hotel before, but this was my first time staying in the West Building on 4th Street. I now much prefer it to the East Building on 2nd Street. I find it quieter, and the rooms with the balconies overlooking 4th Street are fantastic. I've read other reviews that mentioned problems with mosquitoes and poor wifi. I had none of those problems and found mosquito repellent devices in the rooms and hallways, and the wifi signal must have been improved because connection to the internet was strong and fast. My 4th floor balcony room was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The king bed was on the soft side, and I usually prefer a harder mattress, but I found it surprisingly comfortable and had no problem sleeping. This hotel and my room are the equivalent of any 5 star hotel I have stayed at in Guangzhou. Room service is available 24 hours a day. I had a problem with the TV one night around midnight and I called the front desk for assistance and 1/2 expected to be told they would address the problem in the morning. Instead, they had a person there in 10 minutes to fix the problem...and this at midnight. Check-in and check-out was fast, efficient, accurate and friendly. I got exactly the room I had asked for and had reconfirmed the previous day. The breakfast buffet included with my room price was plentiful, lots of variety and catered to Chinese, American, and European preferences for breakfast. The location is on Shamian Island, which is beautiful. There was not a single negative experience during my stay at the West Building of the Guangdong Victory Hotel and I highly recommend it. Great, great hotel!!
Guangdong Victory Hotel - New Wing”
I stayed at the new wing. A good hotel in a beautiful,historic location. Romantic for couples, especially at night when the tourists have gone home. My room was big, clean and comfortable. The bed and the bedsheet felt like what you would get in a luxury hotel. The staff spoke English so no communication problems. For the rate I paid, I think this hotel is value for money. There is Huangsha subway station minutes walk away with a big mall attached to it. The downside is you have to cross an overhead bridge. Also, the international buffet breakfast was nothing to crow about, running out of food and utensils midway. The top-up could be faster. The eating area is in the atrium, right in the middle of the hotel so any noise will reverberate to the different levels.
Pleasant stay with friendly staff”
It's about a km walk to the nearest mrt - Huang sha - a interchange for mrt line 1 & 6. Cross a bridge and you will find many many stores selling Chinese herbs at local price. The hotel staff Mansfield and serena were helping in giving us some useful mrt travelling tips to Chang long theme park. It turned out that travelling by mrt is the preferred way if you wish to avoid traffic jam during peak period. The two ladies were patient and put up a smiling face. Well today 10/12 I forgot to pass room cards to my kids when they took a cab back from somewhere. On their way back I called up the hotel lobby and got a 王小姐 to make preparation for two spare room cards. She did give me a call to verify my particulars before issuing the two cards. Also the Ms Mily also helped to make reservation for two cabs to airport. She was nice enough to remind me to be early to airport. Friendly as well. We booked two rooms over two separate period and we find that rooms in east wing are cleaner than the rooms in west. Maybe there are a few things for hotel to note that is the bath shower's water flow is slow and the temperature seems to change during bath. Overall it's pleasant stay at victory hotel.
Comfortable hotel in historic and romantic area”
The hotel is a very comfortable hotel. There are two wings, the east and the west and they are not connected, perhaps 200m apart. I was in the west wing. The west wing is very comfortable aarea and this will be convenient once that far bigger hotel opens again. The east wing appears to be the main hotel and perhaps has more facilities than the west. All in all., I would recommend the hotel for anyone interested in the history of the meeting of the east and west as Shamian Island (the hotel location)was a centre of the trading between China and the west in the 18th and 19th century and there are many interesting and beautiful historic colonial buildings..
Lovingly, relaxing and comfort”
My stay was a 4 days 3 nights. It was my first time in Guangdong Victory Hotel and the experience was great. I booked an executive room in the West building. The check in was fast and the room was clean and comfortable. We even had a balcony in the room for great relaxation after the day work. The surrounding around the hotel was really peaceful and serene. It is quite unique as it was totally different from the city. Everything here was slow and peaceful. There's a lot of restaurant nearby and even a Starbucks around the corner. It was a 12 minutes walking distance to ShangXiaJiu walking street. Only cons of this place is it is difficult to catch a taxi. But the Metro train station is just 10 minutes away.
clean room, friendly staff, near to train station”
very comfortable stay , the train station is within walking distance, good restaurant nearby and also near to seafood market. the whole sale market for chinese medicine is also within walking distance. five minutes walk and park and river side.
