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,... More

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... More

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... More

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...

This is a business hotel. Location is great though there are no Malls nearby. Rooms are clean, staff are friendly, and there are reasonable restaurants in this hotel. It has a useful big lobby and cafe where you are able to have chats and meetings. There is also a useful 7-11 downstairs where you can get your bottled water. Go... More

I had meant to book into the far inferior Gold Coast Marina Club Hotel which is near the University and accidentally booked into this hotel. The hotel is a bit out of the way and is on the outskirts of the city. However, the tube line is only 2 minutes walk away at the other end of the square and... More

I've stayed at this hotel 3 times now, and I recommend it to anyone travelling in the Guangzhou/Panyu area. Free breakfast your entire stay, usually at least one free buffet dinner, and my favorite.. a laundry allowance for long stay visitors. That's right, free laundry (within an allowance of 300 for 8 days, 600 for 15 days etc.) no problem... More

The rooms are OK, but the aircon is loud and it is directed right at the working table, so it's easy to catch a cold (rooms 973, 473). Service is good, staff speaks fluent English, was helpful with taxi arrangement. There's a 7-11 next door to the hotel. Japanese restaurant- NOT GOOD. Very average food, of 20 sake brands in...
