Probably the best budget hotel in Guangzhou
Posted Mar 15, 2014
Directions to hotel - Exit Zhongshanba Station Exit A and walk straight along the road towards the Inner Ring Road Highway. Don't go up the pedestrian bridge but cross the main road below the bridge. Straightaway turn left after you cross and walk all the way straight for abt 5 min. There are a couple of signs indicating the hotel is just up ahead, if you can spot them.
I booked the hotel only hours before I arrived and it appears that my booking confirmation have not reached them yet. Rather than leave me to my own devices, the hotel staff called the site to clarify matters and eventually gave me a room after that. They were professional and cordial in their service. And it's not just the concierge, the cleaning ladies are polite and smiley too!
The colors of the hotel is bright and inviting, a color scheme I don't find in many budget ensembles. The room I was in is also large and spacious. Wifi is stable too. TV was shot, but that's a small price to pay esp since I was already paying so little. My only grouse is that there is no staircase, and only one elevator :/
I should probably mention that there was a small blackout while I was staying there. However, it only lasted less than 5min before electricity resumed. The whole area was pretty quiet and peaceful. You gotta walk about 10min to reach the liwan garden across the road, while 20min would bring you to Zhong Shan Ba train station (red line) - you can get to pretty much anywhere from there
