I'm satisfied the good service in this hotel.
However one thing needs the consideration - taxi arrangement.
It's too hard to catch the taxi at the hotel. Guess hotel may have the contract some taxi companies to standby in front of entrance. Since my waiting for taxi around 20 mins when check-out...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HighTech Good Alternate for Canton Fair
All the places to stay near the Canton Fair are expensive so we have stayed a few times at this location. The bus will take you to and from the fair so works out great. The food is great especially the spaghetti, burgers and pizza. All the staff are great and are always there to help or answer question.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by StephenN Don't let the entrance put you off
This is an excellent hotel with very professional and friendly staff. The breakfast room is excellent and the staff make you feel really welcome.
The front entrance to the hotel is appalling. There were Chinese street vendors washing raw meat/chicken pieces down the street - right outside the hotel when we arrived. There are a number of beggars at the door harrassing you for money or trying to sell you cheap 'gifts'.
Most of the taxi drivers we used did not know the hotel or where it was located - I guess this is indiciative of Guangzhou taxi drivers instead of the hotel!

Nice hotel with great location. Staff excellent, esp the bell hops. Excellent service. I was not allowed on the executive floor even as a Platinum Member. I was told I traded this for an upgraded room but I was not given a choice. The food was very very expensice, but lots of very nice places to eat just out the door and 1/5 the price. Next trip will be at a different property where they recignize the dedicated customer to the chain. Carpets were very very dirty

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Seb13 Getting worse and time to move on to another hotel
I am staying in this hotel during the Canton Fair for 7 years now and this hotel is getting worse.
Although the staff is trying to help but their English is not understandable and poor. So, if you don't know Chinese you are lost in translation. I called the room cleaning to bring me cotton buds, but they brought me a Hamburger instead. Then the room cleaning is not how it was years back. I found drain hair and dirt on the weighning scale, which was not cleaned and removed for 2 days. On the 3rd day I called the front desk to have them removed and cleaned (during Canton Fair, it is almost impossible to change the room).
The Restaurant buffet food is getting from year to year, so so. Maybe they should stop offering buffet and increase the selection on their menu. The cooks, who should prepare for you some food at the buffet for you at request have a look in their face like, "please don't talk to and bother me".
Then I wanted to book a table at the famous Guangzhou Restaurant next to the hotel, where I traditionally always have my dinner with business partners, but this time they refused to help me to make a reservation at the front desk. The reason stated was, that they don't have the number of the restaurant. So much, for the time of internet and smartphones, where you can easily check. Just to note, this Guangzhou Restaurant has been her in the Area (just a few steps from the hotel) for over 90 years. Just to note once more, before it was possible and before they had the number and helped me.
As before I very liked to stay at this hotel, even the shuttle bus trip to the exhibition center takes approx. 1 hour, it was really good, the service was first class (the staff could even remember old guests, and because I like the location. So, after 7 years, I think it is time to move on to another hotel. For the price of a room in this hotel, the brand and the quality standard, you should expect more and you can.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by giabot Good for a local stay
i stayed at this property during the Canton fair.
The hotel staff were great and could not ask for better service from the staff.
The area where the hotel is, gives a good feel of the local area.
The shop and food offered in this area is OK for local residence.
I'm not too sure for a international visitor staying here.
I was here for a exhibition, i think if i was here for tourist reasons i may have been in the wrong area.
Overall, it was a good stay, I may stay here again if I am to visit the Canton Fair again.

一般國內酒店的牀比較硬, 很不習慣. 所以很少到國內旅行.
但 Holiday Inn 所提供的牀很合適我的要求. 晚上睡得很OK.
而且位置都很方便. 晚上到樓下行街, 已經什麼都有得買 .
第二朝, 一早到對面廣州酒家飲茶, 都好方便.所以每次到廣州都會

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Frankyw experience local life, but dont drive there
Very close to local shopping area. Although nothing fits my needs, its still good to see how local people live. Great chance to try some very typical local food.
Requested to upgrade to club floor but not answered, though my rate already includes breakfast.
Room is big but not elegant. Its quiet anyway.
Key problem is driving there. Hard to find is one headache. High parking fee is another. Its rare to charge hotel guests for parking in china. Not recommended if you drive there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hungrier Room service
Staff are lovely and try to be very helpful but their standard of english is very poor both in the restaurant and answering room service calls. For example on this trip room service had a special offer on vegetable curry for 38. I phoned down to the restaurant and placed my order stressing the words vegetable curry at least 6 times as I have experienced communication problems previously in this hotel. 20 minutes later a chicken curry was delivered - I am a vegetarian. From experience it is pointless trying to make the kitchen aware of the error. I could not eat this meal and on checking out I was charged 78. I explained the mistake to my check out cashier but she displayed as much comprehension as the restaurant staff so I was charged for something I did not order nor could not eat.
Also at 2 am on the morning of 24th I was woken up to the noise of someone trying to gain entry to my room. I had to go to door to convince them they at wrong room. I then rang the night manager who told me he would investigate and ring me right back - I am still waiting for that call.
Look again I would like to say that the staff are very friendly and genuinely try to be helpful but in a lot of cases their lack of english is very frustrating.

So much to seen in the area. Walking street and the local sights nearby make it an excellent choice for tourist and even those of us who travel China frequently.
Paid more for a better room on my last visit and still got the same room.
There is really never any recongnition of your status tab this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pensioner2014 great location
we love this hotel as it is located in the heart of the shopping and eating places within walking distance.
However, for whatever reason, we did not get the hotel stay points which we paid for the hotel stay ( Jan. 27-29,2014).
the IHG reported that there was no hotel bill to show our stay, so it was considered non-credited stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by shef STAFF
The house keeping, bar staff & the asst manager were completely disappointing.
at times they would act as if they understood english & at their convenience they would act as if they cannot understand a word.
so eg: pls pick up the tray or dishes or clear the food like basic terms were not understood.. neither by room service nor by asst manager.
Asst manager kept calling us at odd hours to understand what we wanted to say.
The bar waiter took over an hour to get our food.. so from we waited for an hour & went to the room at 11.30pm requesting him to serve through room service.. still we were served at 12.15 am.
The basic english language is so important for a high end hotel like Holiday Inn.
Also a airport pick up or shuttle should be a part of the package like every other hotel.

I stayed in this hotel during my business trip to Guangzhou... I found this hotel standard is much higher than usual standard Holiday Inn in general, no wonder, there are lots of awards in their lobby...
I really like staying here, because the room size is huge, and is really modern... The bathroom is also really nice... You can feel the good scent as you enter the lobby of this hotel, until u go to ur room,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by freddy1 great place for adoptive families
we stayed at this holiday inn for the tail end of our adoption for 5 days and I only have great things to say about my entire stay. I was impressed how they made our stay comfortable due to the 2 interconnecting rooms they put us in. I hear that most adoptive families stay at the China hotel and that's probably great but in my humble opinion, I feel there is far more value to not only the staff but the location of this hotel. I didn't deal much with the front desk staff as much as the cleaning and breakfast staff, however they greeted us warmly upon check in and were professional upon check out. the cleaning lady and the breakfast lady were the friendliest you could meet. my entourage of kids were rumbustious however they treated them with sincere care and humor and most of all they demonstrated their professionalism by the patience they had for my kids. the restaurant with the fish was awesome. pricy for a family of 6, but I chose this life...wherever I go with my kids it will always be pricy, even McDonalds!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Timothy69 Good location, spacious room
The location of the hotel is good which is heart of the old town which is very convenient for eating around the local Guangzhou food.
The room is spacious.
The wifi signal is very strong in the room except in the toilet.
The front desk of the staffs are not so sincere and professional.They didn't welcome me as a gold card priority member even I gave the gold card of them for the check in. And asking me to pay for the charge for internet, then I asked the staff the wifi charge is free to gold card member. Eventually, after checking, the staff found my words are true.
The check in time supposed to be at 2 pm, eventually, I could have my room really ready for stay at 4pm.
