Guangdong Victory Hotel
Travel Blogs from Guangzhou
We arrived in Shamian Island late last night. We were awoken by the sound of a school of little kids doing their morning exercises outside our window. This place is as charming as ever. However with all the adoption related business moved to Guangzhou with the Consulate moved, you don't see a lot of evidence of what it once was.
We will …
Après un petit déjeuner près de l’hôtel, nous allons à la banque, Dominique adore. Il a dû écrire deux fois le formulaire parce qu’il avait coché les cases avec des croix et non pas des coches. Pour finir, l'informatique était trop lente, et le Mr lui déchire le formulaire... lui qui voulait le garder pour la prochaine fois, au cas où, …
Today was Maddie's day.
She is visiting the orphanage that took care of her for most of the first 12 months of her life and the her "finding spot" in her birth town of Yanbu, which is now part of the greater Foshan City metropolis.
We are up and ready right on schedule, of course. Breakfast is done and we are in the lobby. Maddie …
As you all know, I am a person of extremes. Yesterday, we posted a huge number of pictures. Today, the fewest from our trip.
But there is good reason for this particular fluctuation, besides my fundmental nature to go to the extremes of Ying and Yang.
We awoke early for our last internal flight in China. It was a quick, hour long …
Arrive early in Guangzhou and again everything goes smoothly, incl pickup by the hotel van. Even tho its only 8am, the hotel is happy for us to check in to our rooms & freshen up. We're all had plenty of sleep on the flight, so decide to head out and explore the small island on the side if the Pearl River, where we are staying, Shamian Is ia …

Historical Traveler Reviews Guangdong Victory Hotel Guangzhou
Es un lugar muy agradable para familias. Viajamos con tres niños y como esta zona es muy popular entre los interesados en adoptar, el servicio del entorno es bueno. La Isla Smamian también es bastante tranquila en lo que se refiere a los coches, además tiene bonitos parques, zonas peatonales y parques infantiles en buenas condiciones.
We decided to stay in Victory Hotel after going through the hotel list in Guangzhou. We were looking for affordable comfort and convenience (near to the subway station) for our 3 nights stay there. We were a bit skeptical at first given that the hotel is locally run. But the hotel itself turned out to be better than expected. The location, however is a bit of a let down.
Siamo rimasti per sette notti e otto giorni. L'hotel è semplicemente favoloso.
Sure is a Victor!
We stayed for seven nights and eight days. The hotel is just fabulous. Excellent service, rooms are really up to date. It even has a water purifier w/ reverse osmosis technology and it really saved us a lot since we spend so much buying bottled water. Their laundry service is cheap, which I wished I knew from the start. The location is what I loved most. Aside from being close to a French built Catholic Church, the park behind the hotel is uncomparable. The serenity of the surroundings after a hard days work plus the room's ambiance not to mention the foot massage room service is more than what I expected. Oh, just one thing, they aren't really experts in toasting bread.
My husband and I stayed at the Victory for two nights in September 2006. This was towards the end of a month long vacation in which we travelled all over China and weathered many nights in assorted three and four star hotels. This was simply the best hotel for service, comfort and value. It is a older renovated hotel with lots of character situated on Shamian island by the Pearl river. Some judge hotels by the bathrooms but can bathrooms redeem worn and stained carpets? Not in my books. At the Victory the spotless rooms pass the bathroom AND carpet test.
Good value, great location
Highly recommended for guangzhou, staff was very friendly and helpfull and the location was great, rooms clean and well appointed and well priced. I will stay there again, also near the huangsha metro. The only down side was there is no good restuarants on Shamian island.
Loved the Victory
We loved the Victory Hotel!! The staff were awesome, the rooms above average and the location excellent. We were only in China for three days for a trade show, and this was a very easy hotel as well as reasonable priced. The staff spoke very good english, they were very helpful and polite, as well as going above and beyond with everything we needed. The location was also very tourist friendly, quiet and safe.
Perhaps my favorite thing about this hotel was that the airport pick-up that we had prearranged was at the airport to meet us even though our flight was over three hours late, and we were delayed almost an hour at bagage claim with lost luggage at 3am!!!!
We will definately stay at the Victory again.
Great Hotel on Shamian Island
This is a nice hotel located on Shamian Island, small enough that you can walk around the perimeter and take in the sights of Guangzhou and the surrounding river. Small shops and restaurants on the island or walk on the footbridge 5 minutes to the main section for more variety. Nice service and great staff. The business center is lacking updated computers and high speed internet, but the usage rate is low. Third floor offers "Morning Tea" which is basically Dim Sum to us Westerners, seemed as though many locals dine here, pretty good. Beds are comfortable, breakfast buffet is good.
Friendly & good value
Excellent value with friendly staff and very comfortable rooms. Stayed in the annexe which is the cheaper part fo the hotel but had no complaints at all.
The streets that surround the hotel offer some respite from the bustle of the city but which is a matter of a short walk away
My second stay a year after the first and it will definitely be top of the list next time I stay in Guangzhou.
Excellent hotel and an excellent value
This was a great value. The upgraded room was nicely appointed, clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful. This was to best value on this trip. I will definitely stay here in the future. The view is nothing special, but who goes to Guangzhou to look out the window? Good location, decent restuarants (stay away from the western breakfast buffet), gracious and accomodating staff, very nice sauna.
You won't regret staying here.
