Hotel Landmark, what can i say...
Time: April for 21 days
Room: Business Suite
Room; Room was great.. would personally love them to update the rooms as fairly dated although well appointed.. Fridge, Lounge, Desk, LARGE COMFORTABLE Bed, 2 LCD's and bathroom. Only real negative is being dated,, and for crying out LOUD only LAN internet (no wifi) that crashes consistently.
Room Service: OMG, what is the go here.. eg, the toilet roll holder is a double holder and what do they do? leave one empty and let the other get below half before they replace the only one the dare to.. i have had to call room service every day to get more paper... (food has not treated me well)...
Club Lounge: this is another misconception.. do not expect to come to a club floor with all day beverages (non alcoholic), food, nibblies etc.. all that is offered is tea/coffee all day and then between 6-8pm sprite, coke zero, coke, local beer and some 'food' if you can refer to it as that.. although you can buy perrier water or wine. although service is great, they are very welcoming..
Paradise Restaurant (level 39).. this is touted as the highest western restaurant in guangzhou, omg, what defines western.. i dont recall eating fried rice and crab roe (egg) in melbourne at my local chinese restaurant.. mmm..
Staff: very friendly, language is a huge issue, although they try to be so accommodating..
In house costs: this is insane, it costs me 15.00 (plus 15%) to wash my jocks.. and boy, i could go to the fashion district and buy a new set for less than that.. it is just Canton Fair Highway Robbery.. take advantage of all traveller.. even to the extent of soft drinks, you can buy a can of coke downstairs in the supermarket for 3.00 and yet you pay $30ish plus 15% in the hotel..
Surroundings: food.. go to a german restaurant only minutes walk from the hotel.. turn right at the pearl river and it is just past the first bridge you go under.. its called 1920... nice meal, had pork there last night and will return tomorrow night as well.. hearty sized portions and very very reasonable prices...
Overall, i would stay here again.. it has been ok,, although nothing would really compare to a traditional hotel that has a truly well appointed club floor..
