Vhotel:beanthe**** 2011-01-07 Brisbane, Australia Trip type: Family Great Hotel, Beautiful location, not sure about all the babies??? *The hotel was a delightful surprise for the cost. We chose the business room East building as it was non smoking. Not a hint of smoke in this room. The rooms are nicely decorated and spacious. Sha Mian island has improved since I was here 20 years ago. Location: The only thing I didn't like was that we were the only complete Western family on the island. The island was jammed packed with American adopting Chinese babies. It was like a baby toy shop and felt very strange! We felt the whole area was geared up to this market and therefore felt isolated and out of place, like we were in a customs village. The restaurants are terrible unless you like hamburgers and western Asian food.
osig*** 2010-11-29 Johannesburg, South Africa Trip type: Friends getaway Lovely!! *Very friendly staff, who try hard to accommodate English too (not a given in Guangzhou!) Rooms are simply BEAUTIFUL, although the quality of fittings is slightly below average. Expensive and poor dinner ! Eat elsewhere (a challenge in its own right) Roomy, and did I mention beautiful Slightly stained carpets... Far from markets. Lovely, leafy neighbourhood right across the river and leisure boats. Very good value for money. Would I stay there again? MOST DEFINITELY
gztr** 2010-11-12 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Trip type: Family Clean, convenient, customer friendly English speaking guests will be very comfortable here as the counter staff can communicate reasonably well in English, and very helpful in providing information and assistance. There is metro station just a short walk across the overhead bridge. It would be good if the hotel can provide a map of the surrounding area and free wifi service in the room.
co** M. 2010-12-27 Couple My wife and I had a great two-night stay here. Shamian is a very charming part of Guangzhou, and the Victory Hotel offers very good value. We stayed in the West Building, which includes breakfast and is newly renovated, at least on the inside. Would easily recommend this hotel.
Barba** 2011-01-04 Keperra, Australia Solo traveler hotel was quite luxurious for quoted price, location in attractive area of Guangzhou, quite safe area quoted price was not recognised by staff when paying... didnt have time to argue with a plane to catch.
