This hotel was offered as part of China Southern's list of included Transit hotels for layovers over 9hrs. This was good and included transfers to and from, a meal from a Chinese style buffet and a good room complete with amenities such as toiletries, tv, bottled water and sandals. Only spent 4 hrs so can't comment on the environs but overall good stay. Tips: get water while still at the airport and food if not a fan of local buffet.
I stayed at this hotel because China Southern Airlines arranged for a free room due to a long layover in Guangzhou. For a free hotel, it wasn't bad. I was able to shower and freshen up in between my flights and it brought me closer to the city so that I was able to go in to see some of the sights of Guangzhou. It doesn't have a lot of curb appeal and there was room to improve in the shower area, but, the bed was comfortable and the staff were friendly
