Really not a hotel for me. Felt grubby and pretty smokey (even in the non smoking rooms) The room was very low end and tired. The lobby, and lobby bar is pretty uninspiring. Check-in was slow and overly complex. Despite it being very convenient for my office, its not a choice I'll make again.

I have stayed at this hotel twice a year for the past 4-5 years. The hotel is worn down and has not been maintained properly. Carpets in the rooms are filthy. Carpeting in the Cafe restaurant needs major cleaning. Food at the breakfast buffet is not of the good quality as before.

A bit like stepping into the past when the best Chinese hotels had massive lobbies and lots of marble and an attendant on every floor. The attendants are gone but the little desks are still there in the lobby as a quaint reminder of another era. The service was friendly, the lobby bar mostly empty and way expensive (a coke...

Great location ( for going to any fair at Pazhou ) with free shuttle bus. It is rated as a 5 star hotel ( and to be fair, it has swimming pool and even a tennis court ) so price is very attractive. Food is decent too with chilled white wine ( not so common in China )...

Very reasonably priced business district hotel in Guangzhou. Excellent buffet breakfast but expensive bar. Rooms are spacious and clean with a well stocked bathroom. Beds are excellent. Air conditioning is good - and a must as it does tend to get humid. Good conference facilities.

Everything great, even the buffet. But the pool is not a place to be. Badly designed, you get nauseous just to watch at the building. There is little walking space, and the water is thick and sticky. Staff is kind, although they don´t fully understand engrish! XD

Great location for business travellers. Not overly close to anything other than businesses. Food was a good selection for breakfast and dinner. Price was good and service was not tobe faulted, would stay again if on business trip.

Stayed at the Grand Royal whilst going to a Trade Fair. The hotel is clean, staff are pleasant and breakfast is better than most. The and pastries need to go through the toaster to freshen up and the coffee isn't very good. Went to the lobby bar one night and the drinks were 105RMB (nearly $20 each). The beer was...

I used to like this hotel (been here 4 times now) but that was then and this is now... I'll never will stay here again... Nothing comes for free in this hotel... Don't be fooled, this isn't a 5 star hotel, merely 4 stars and they don't offer any of the facilities for free... Fitness, prepare your money, want to...
