I didn’t take many photos of the interior of the hotel, so I’ll try to make it up with three pictures. I’ve stayed in a lot of bad hotels at home and abroad this year, but my stay in this one was quite comfortable👍 Facilities: Complete, there is a projector in the room to watch movies and TV series (but I don’t know why QQ Music members automatically log out immediately after logging in), there are washing machines and dryers on the floor, and there are conference rooms available in the lobby on the first floor. The lighting in the guest room is sufficient and has a small brightness, which can control the smart home. Hygiene: The room is clean and tidy. As a new hotel, there is no obvious decoration smell and there are no mosquitoes, which makes people feel more comfortable. Environment: Located next to a fish market, you will smell the obvious smell of aquatic products when you go out, but the environment inside the hotel is still very good. Just outside the subway entrance is a shopping plaza with many restaurants. If you like to play games, you can also go to the ns experience store in the shopping mall, where you can choose machines and cassettes, including PS. Service: The service is quite attentive. The front desk answers all your questions and even offers you water when you sit downstairs. Transportation: It is very close to the subway entrance. It is very convenient to take the subway to many nearby attractions. You have to walk over an overpass to go between the subway and the hotel, so it's a bit tiring to carry your suitcase. It may not be convenient to drive, so you have to park at a shopping mall. A small problem: the mobile phone signal in the room is not very good. Sometimes two people’s mobile phones cannot get a signal. If you want to make calls or receive verification codes on your mobile phone, you must go out to find a signal or go directly to the first floor. This is not very convenient. It is recommended that the hotel check whether this is a common problem in all rooms and investigate the cause and solve it. I haven't eaten at the hotel's buffet since I woke up too late in the past few days. I'll try to experience it next time I have a chance to stay in the hotel.

I booked two room types for two consecutive nights, respectively on the fourth and fifth floors of the hotel. The hotel is located in a dilapidated park (1850 Creative Park) beside Fangcun Pier. It is in a building near the river. It will be opened in October 2023. I was originally worried that it would smell like decoration. After checking in, I found that every room has There is an air freshener and the windows are open for ventilation. According to my personal test, there is indeed no decoration smell, but there is a little strange smell in the room. I guess it may be the odor of the sewer. The river view room is located on the 5th floor, but the entire hotel building is perpendicular to the Pearl River. The so-called river view room does not have a full view. What you see is half of the river view, and the other half is the messy landscape of the building next door. If you want to see the river view, You can go to the breakfast area on the 6th floor, where you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Pearl River. Let’s talk about the hotel facilities: the newly renovated hotel has relatively new facilities, dry and wet separation, smart toilet, large shower water, sufficient hot water, smart Xiaodu can ask it to help turn on and off the lights, turn on and off the air conditioner, and the robot delivers things, it is very Convenience. But the soundproofing of the hotel is a big flaw. I was watching TV in the next room, and I could hear the plot clearly as if I had the TV on. What's even worse is that the neighbor's TV is turned on until 12 o'clock with no intention of ending. The waiter reminded me to turn down the volume of the TV. In the quiet environment of the night, even using the earplugs provided by the hotel is useless. The characters on the TV next door are useless. The dialogues and theme music are blaring to the ears, which is unspeakably painful. Fortunately, in the end, the front desk helped me arrange another room to sleep in (a thumbs up to her here). Finally, let’s talk about the hotel’s surroundings. There is currently no ferry from Fangcun Pier. Although there is Shamian Island across the river, you have to go around to get to the opposite side. There are basically no commercial outlets in a radius of one kilometer. The nearby bus station is 500 meters away and the subway station is 1.2 kilometers away. If you are not driving by yourself or can't ride a bicycle, it is not recommended. Imagine dragging your suitcase on a bumpy road or getting off the subway after going out late and having to walk more than 1 kilometer to get to the hotel. If it's not a special forces tour, let's not suffer ourselves. Besides, hotel room rates are not cheap, around 400 on weekdays and 800+ on holidays. The price/performance ratio is too low.

Yes hotel (Guangzhou Yongqingfang Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street)
4.5/5252 Reviews
Shamian Island and Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street
I was so impressed by that beauty with lavender hair, the color is so beautiful😻, I also asked her about her hair color, she is also a nice person, I chatted with her for a few words and was very cordial, and found out that she is also from the north, hahaha, I like it very much I will stay here next time and hang out with her. Overall, it’s pretty good. It’s the first time I stay in a hotel alone. It feels safe. The elevator is full of elevators. I asked them about this. It’s just opened and it’s very clean. The location is pretty good too. It’s close to various attractions. It’s suitable for checking in and taking photos. The colorful dots next to it are very cheap and cost-effective. It’s my first time to have Cantonese-style morning tea. It's quite delicious. Come on, beauties.
Guangdong Victory Hotel
4.6/52638 Reviews
Shamian Island and Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street
Midnight flight arrived at the hotel at 3am. The counter staff are very friendly. She welcomed us and upgraded the room by saying sorry for the potential noises by the ongoing renovations. We did not hear the noise at all, probably the renovations carried out during the day, when we were touring the city outside. The hotel is located at ShaMian, walking distance to the bank of the Zhu Jiang river, less than 700m to LingZhan shopping plaza. We had breakfast at the hotel. The buffet is a normal buffet. However, the senior chef man cooking noddles was very unfriendly. When I approached him to confirm if the finished bowl is the one I passed him for cooking, he simply said the bowl was not mine, but for another lady. When I approached him again about 10 mins later, he told the same bowl was for me. The noddle has been soaked for a long time and became not edible. However, he didn't want 6say sorry for his mistake. The hotel overall is recommended, though the incident during the breakfast was not pleasant.

The hotel facilities are okay, the location is very good, the outside of the windows is basically sealed, and it is not the kind with a view that can be seen outside. The air in our room was okay, but the other room we booked was a bit stuffier. Air conditioning, overall it's okay

There is a smell of secondhand smoke in the room. Chinese people like to smoke in the room too much⋯ The front desk is very enthusiastic about introducing the surrounding environment and food, and is also very enthusiastic to help charge mobile phones. It is very comfortable to run on this island.
