The hotel is located next to the Pearl River and if you stay high enough, you can have a lovely bird eye's view over the river and seeing the city skyscrappers.

We booked 3 rooms, on 25th, 26th and 28th floor and all are facing the river and the views were nice and awesome, be it day or night!

The rooms were spacious and cosy, and the toilet and bathroom were separated and also had a good bathtub.

Beds were very comfortable too and we had a good rest each night. And room services were well done.

Location wise, good. It's 5mins walk from entrance F of Haizhu metro station and there were many eateries and restaurants around the area and within walking distance to Beijing Lu, Gaodi Street and the Sacred Heart Cathedral etc, within 10-15mins.

These were the positive points of the hotel.

As for the negative points, well, the wifi was very slow and connections got cut off on and off and regularly. You can send a message tonight and the intended party only received it tomorrow morning! In addition, reception staff were not that friendly and quite blunt and all guests had to be "photographed" when checking in, the first time we had encountered such practises in "our walk around the world" which when asked, they could not give a reason why.

We didn't try it's breakfast buffet as we wanted to try the local authentic cantonese dishes but it was not cheap about S$40+ but the restaurant bar on 39th floor had an amazing view too as we went for drinks there.

Overall, we had a nice and satisfactory stay there!

Stayed at this hotel during my stay in guangzhou for 4 nights. Checked in was relatively simple just that the attitude could be better. A bit cold in my opinion. Lobby was ok, not that grand but don’t really matter.

The room was good size and well appropriated with all the necessary amenities available like coffee making and drinking water. Bed was comfortable and I loved the views from the room, overlooking the pearl river.

Walking distance to Beijing road which was why I chose the hotel. Overall, in view of the price paid, pretty satisfied.

This hotel was part of our tour plan. The room was ok, a bit old. Close to McD. The only thing that was open at night ( we arrived late at night). The breakfast was pretty good. The window was dirty from the outside, so it was kinda blocking the good view.

This place is awful! Don't be fooled by the 3 stars and pictures on the web site. If you can't book into the White Swan in Guangzhou, then stay in Shenzhen and commute. Looking good from the outside and the lobby is also very nice, full of marble. But, the rooms make low rent Ramada Inns look like the Mandarin! The carpet was worn and stained. The furniture was chipped and had cigarette burns (this was "non-smoking" room.) Best of all was the placard in 4 languages over the faucet in the bathroom: "Don't drink the water." On each floor was an "attendant" whose job was to check up on each guest going to and leaving their room. And the Cantonese restaurant which was supposed to be great was also awful. Best of all, the regular $69/night room rate is pushed up close to $200/night during the Canton Fair.

Summary: 4 hours of misery even though my wife is a native of Guangzhou speaking fluent Cantonese and Mandarin.

After standing in a chaotic line at registration (Sept is not a busy season), we were waved to an unsmiling clerk who seemed to know only the words "reservation?" and "passport". They found the travel agent's reservation quickly (yea!). Coached by travel sites to never pay for a room before examining it, we tried to explain we wanted to see the room first. We had asked for a single large bed and after a bit of denial we got a "Yes, yes" and our spirits rebounded as we left the marble lobby. As we left the tiny elevator, Oh my... but maybe the room was ok?

As we squeezed into the room, my wife's face explained it all. Filthy stained carpet, ruined flee market furniture, the "large bed" was actually two twin beds strapped together. Now I like a firm bed, but my carpet at home is softer. Even the guest booklet proclaiming their many splendid charms was stained. Then there was the note about the construction noise... The bathroom was so enormous it could easily fit my dog, but not a person. A quick finger wipe proved that my garage is washed more frequently. We called down to registration where it seemed no one would talk to us. Eventually, we were told that they had a refurbished room (yea!) but it was being cleaned, if we would wait and they would call us. Ok, as my wife washed the plastic chair seat before sitting down. After discussing our options for over an hour we called registration, where again no one seemed to know about the new room but eventually we got a new room number. A very busy (overworked?) maid was very confused but tried to be so helpful (bless her!) and let us see a "new" room. New carpet! New furniture! Same dirty tiny bathroom! Same twin rock beds! Ok, back to registration, we can't stay here.

The concept of canceling the reservation couldn't be understood in any language. (even for a filthy room) "You must pay for the room the travel agent reserved it." After an hour conversation with the on-duty manager "Grace" she agreed to cancel our charges. Yea! Time to go! But upon more questioning we learned that the travel agent would still charge us?!! For another hour, (my wife nearly in tears as she had to do all the talking) we called various levels of management at the travel agency and learned that there is an arrangement where no one will admit to billing anyone although no one will cancel any charges. Clever.

Thank goodness for US credit card companies as we threatened to call them to help us. The agent relented only if we could get a signed letter that the hotel won't charge them. Another hour with our favorite useless manager who agreed to not charge us but refused to put it in writing. At this point it was laughable (but not if you saw my wife's face!) as we made a quiet but firm disturbance at the main registration. Even the employees smiled as Grace made a fool of herself spouting policy, as I caught all the excitement on video. Eventually, we got our letter, but she fought every detail, like the date! our names! her name! her title! and the big one -- she refused to write down the reservation number the letter applied to! Eventually satisfied, I suggested she photocopy the letter for her records, then she didn't want us to have the signed original.

We left for the Regal Riviera Hotel where we were *overwhelmed* with the quality of service, friendly staff and beautiful room. They wouldn't stop helping us! The pleasure on my wife's face said it all. I'll add that review later!

I go to Guangzhou as many as 5 times a year. The first time I went to Guangzhou (2006) I didn't know where to stay. I browsed through internet and found that Landmark Canton Hotel is the nearest to my supplier's office. I never stayed at the Landmark Canton so I didn't know what to expect. But according to my friends who have stayed there before the hotel is relatively clean and has an easy access to the surrounding area. The recommendation turned out to be a true one. I found the hotel clean (despite the hygiene situation in China). From that moment on I always stay there. And I have recommended the hotel to my friends and colleagues. But my last experience has changed my opinion about the hotel.

Last time I stayed there was during my quick trip to Guangzhou (September 1 - September 4). I entered the room and found the room dirty. I can tell the carpet hasn't been vacuumed. And to my horror when I went inside the bathroom I found the bath mat was dirty (black-ish and it seemed like it has mold all over it), the bath curtain was also dirty. To top all of that the toilet was unable to be flushed. I have complained several times to the front desk and to room service but to no avail. I told them that the safe deposit box was not working either. The room service came to my room and to my horror just take the safe deposit box and changed into a new one. It left me fearing that if someone decided to steal my safe deposit box they could just take mine and replaced with a new (and empty) one. So I felt disappointed with how they responded to my complaints.

This is my third time at Landmark Canton Hotel the Haizhu Square as its so convenient for shopping and eat at the same time and in the vicinity you will find the the Guangzhou One Link plaza (guangzhoutravelguide.com/guangzhou_shopping/…) , a wholesale shopping plaza where you can buy toys, gifts, beauty tools, households such as decorations, behind the hotel you can find the wholesale shopping plaza for jewellery and not very far the so called "wedding dress street" it is a street specializing in selling wedding gowns, wedding shoes and related products.
Loved to stay in this hotel, very well located, very clean rooms we stayed two different rooms ( business suite and executive suite with king size bed) but all with river view room and higher floor and with breakfast included. We chose these rooms since we have included the breakfast and we are able to have an express check-in and late out at the landmark club but not more than 4pm.(please check the photo I've inserted regarding the landmark club benefits)
Hotel Landmark Canton is only a 2-minute walk from subway station Line 2 ( photo of the Haizhu square insert) and just over 1.6 km from the Beijing Road shopping area. Shuttle buses run from the hotel to Macao and Hong Kong (timetable in the attached photo)

We have stayed five nights with this hotel. We were given a newly renovated room. Everything is good and very comfortable. Location is good. Right smack at down town and near MTR. In the evening, they will place hotel slippers to ready the masters. Good service and very comfortable stay. Highly recommended.

Hello,
Well, this is one of Guangzhou's earlier hotels.
You will not have any problems with taxi drivers finding this location.
It's in the heart of the city and within short distant to & from wherever your going.
The location is very good, its next to the Pearl River.
You can take a short cruise along the river or you can take a nice stroll as well.
There are other shops & establishments around the hotel, just walk around and you'll find it very interesting.
We stopped in a local restaurant and had morning tea, Dimsum.
Food was awesome and it cost me & my wife $3. US of course.

Ok, about the hotel.
Its your standard hotel in China, (hard beds, smokey rooms, dark hallways just comes with the territory). Sometimes you can drop me off in another hotel and I wouldn't notice the difference.
I travel to Guangzhou quit frenqently and at times I just shop for the price and the location.
It has all your standard hotel stuff.
My room was rather small, it was a corner unit.
However, the view was very good especially at night.

I recommend this hotel for the individuals with Par expectations and just need a good place to stay with a good location.
Its not bad for $60 a night. A ok choice for the price.
Hotels in China @ the Middle range ($55- $75) are just ok. Nothing spectacular. In this range, just look for a good location, so your visiting parties can easily find you.
White Swan, Garden, China Hotel, DongFang are very recognizable names, So is Landmark. No Pun intended.

The sign over the bathroom sink, ..”Drinkable After Boiling”, says a lot about Guangzhou; but a bit more on that later.

We made our reservations for the Landmark Canton thru elong.com. We booked a Suite for 710 RMB which included buffet breakfast for two. Elong.com is a good way to reserve hotels in China as they do not require a credit card guarantee (most Chinese do not have credit cards) to hold the room unlike Expedia.com; which requires full advance payment. Gives you an easy 'out' if things don’t work out.

The Landmark is a modern 35 plus high rise hotel located along the Pearl River in Guangzhou. It is about 30 clicks from the airport; about 100 RMB fare. We were taken for a bit of a ‘joy ride’ by the taxi driver, thinking we were uninformed visitors. He adjusted the bill when we finally (after a 55 km ride) arrived at the hotel and complained about the charge. Always ask how much before you get into the cab! We ignored our own policy of asking first and paid the price. A hint: most Chinese cabs have meters that indicate the distance traveled in Km. Know your distance from airports to your hotel.

The suite was about 50-60 sq meters. Average size. The room smelled a bit ‘musty’, but cleared up once we got housekeeping to unlock the windows so they could be opened. They insisted the windows stay open for only two hours; but after our protests we were able to keep them open for the entire day/night. There was no heat/air conditioning this time of the year. The ventilation system only produces air. Only one small bathroom located off the living room section of the suite. No bathroom off the bedroom. The bathroom was exceedingly small with a bathtub/shower combo. Not typical of most suites we’ve stayed in throughout China. The living room area included a couch, one chair, coffee table, desk (without a chair), minibar with drinks only, television with CNN and a couple of other English channels. Free high speed Internet access. Robes, slippers, safe and hot water maker available. The bedroom included one chair, television and smaller double size bed. The bed was firm but comfortable. Housekeeping staff were very attentive when we requested additional items. Housekeeping staff were available on the floor (22) into the late evening.

The breakfast buffet was well presented; with a good variety of Western and Chinese offerings. 'Room service' breakfast is also available for about 68RMB; including Western selections. Just hang your Breakfast card on the door knob before 2 am.

There are several restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel. Especially nice, is a seafood restaurant about 2 blocks from the hotel. Indoor and outdoor dining, with views of the Pearl River. Huge selection of fresh (alive) sea creatures for your choosing !! It is by far, one of the nicest we've been to in China. After dinner you can walk along the Pearl River. There is a nice pedestrian walk way along the river. Quite nice at night.

Guangzhou’s claim to notoriety are the two large commercial ‘fairs’ held twice a year; in the spring and fall. If you visit this time of year be prepared for costly hotel rooms. This city is large, polluted and busy. Pretty much designed for Commercial activities. It is not a city for the casual visitor. There are far better options in China. Avoid it; unless you're there on business.

p/s We could never figure out the hotel's cautionary warning with regard to the hotel water, so stuck to the free bottled water provided in the room.

Happy Travels

The subway station is Haizhu Square station, line 2, at the opposite point of this very large circle. Cost 7 yuan from airport, line 3 at airport, switch to line 2 after 3 stops, that goes straight to Haizhu Square.
