Good Business Hotel but lots of Construction now.Posted Nov 24, 2013
Pros: Rooms are large, comfortable and clean. Good for Business traveller as it is a little out of the way from tourist areas. Close to metro.
Cons: Too much consturction going on in and out of the hotel.
Location: Close to metro (15 mins) and about 25 mins from a major shopping district. Lots of restaurants but not many Western restaurants.
The hotel is located about 15 minutes walk from the Nanjing Road West metro station (about 1 hour 15 mins from the airport by metro). The metro station is right at a major shopping district with lots of restaurants and shops. The alleyway to the hotel from the metro station is now the greatest and some may not feel too safe to walk to the hotel from the metro station. Taking the cab is not a great option too as it is so close. The hotel is right across the street from a Four Seasons Hotel, has a Starbucks on the ground floor and a great cafe/bakery called Rembeld on the other side of the hotel which is better than Starbucks. The room was large and comfortable. My room faced the road and the construction was throughout the night but really started by 6am. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was large. Overall, very clean and much like any other hotels in other countries. I stayed on a "smoke-free" floor but as usual, the smell of smoke is quite evident on the whole floor and in the room through the ventilations. This is quite common in any hotel in China no matter how highend they are. Water was not hot enough but it was not cold. The amenities in the room was very good. The wi-fi throughout the hotel was nice. As usual, the internet access is quite slow in China because of the filters the traffic goes through. Make sure you know where the hotel is as there is no sign of Hojo until you are about 100 feet from it. Staff spoke good English.

Nice place for business tripPosted Nov 20, 2013
The hotel is nice fits in well for me on my business trip but does not fit it for shopping. Hardly or no shopping close by.

Great Location for Canton FairPosted Oct 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Ecellent Hotel, very close to the Panzhou area where the Canto fair is held. Very co-operative and helpful staff. A bit expensive but worth it if you are at the fair all day and need a comfortable place to come back to within 10 minutes.

they are still in 19th centuryPosted Oct 29, 2013
Pros: The estructure is ok but some parts worn out and location ok
Cons: Upgrade to a real 4 or 5 Star hotel, go to Marriott or Westin
Location: good location for Canton fair
This type of hotels try to offer 4 or 5 star hotel, but they are far away, they dont understand that in service the big picture is less than the small picture, small details make a diferencie. The elevators were so bad programed that it took forever to wait. They had a breakfast buffett in the morning where you can seat 100 and there were 500 guests and everybody fought for place and food, incredible!!! diferente cultures together and complaining because there is no order. They should visit other hotel chains an learn. Many details that make the stay very bad from Tianhe área one of the worsts hotels. And The duty manager did not care to solve any of this problems, he said that is just the way it is, to many people, but sorry!!! and offer discount next time to come. Sorry never again to stay in this hotel.

Great Hotel, but bad directions.Posted Oct 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotels.com showed the Vanburgh's hotel location on a google map that was incorrect. My wife, my 3 week old son and I spent 3 hours trying to figure out where it was at. A nightmare! We didn't get into the hotel until half past midnight. I will never use Hotels.com again, I will post this on my Facebook, my twitter and tell all my friends and family to avoid Hotels.com We thought we were a short walk to a subway line near the American Consulate, but it ended up be much further away than we wanted. Very disappointed!

I thought this was a great pick for the Canton Fair. It is convenient to both the fair and the city center. Will definitely go back next time.

Great place to stay if going to Canton Fair. Inexpensive cab ride to the event, and not far from downtown. Staff did not speak great English, but were very helpful. Highly recommend.

Business tripPosted May 28, 2013
Pros: Internet was seamless and worked well during the entire trip.
Location: The hotel is only 20 minutes from the Pazhou Business Fair so it is well situated. However, there is not much to do in the immediate vicinity.
Excellent value for the money. This caters primarily to Chinese clientele but the food, both Chinese and Western is good. The staff went out of their way to help and several staff members, including the concierge speak English well. Had a room with a great view on the 19th flr and everything appears to be fairly new in the room and works well. New fitness center (that was always empty) and had enough equipment to get a good workout.
