The checkin opened at 7:30 and it was busy. After getting our boarding passes we went though security and immigration to arrive at the Premium lounge. Had a quick bite and relaxed and getting some work done in the comfortable chairs (like the ones at the door massage places). Had a quick shower to get ready for the red eye flight to ...
After one hour flight delay, we arrived in Guangzhou at 4pm but the connection on Turkish doesn't leave until 11pm. Kinda awkward timing as it's too little time to go into the city 41km away but too long until the check in counter opens at 7:30pm. The Guangzhou airport lack serious seating so good thing Air China First Class check in counter as ...
... an one, but was just as peaceful a
place to visit.
Apparently GZ was the place that Islam was introduced to
China, and the name means 'remember the sage', referring to Mohammed. The
mosque was built in 627 during the Tang dynasty, and in those days it was close
to the banks of the Zhujiang River, and sailors used to climb the minaret to
For the second time in GZ, I needed a haircut.
Last year, this was a very painless process, as I found a good place on the first go. However, my first attempt here wasn't quite as good, and I ended up with way too short a cut, especially on the fringe!
So today I decided to try another hairdresser at Nan Guo Ao Yuan (my apartment complex) as there are at least 5 of them here.
I enjoyed the experience today, and will go back to the place again - started ...
... cabin crew were pulling the seats apart in a desperate search for my identity. It meant we were delayed getting off the plane, which meant the VIP bus (Yes, I'm a VIP in China) was also delayed and other passengers across the entire arport were going to be late too. Their connecting flights', gates would remain open when they should have been closed, schedules would be messed ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Shifu Guangzhou
No te dejes engañar por la apariencia y la ubicación del hotel. La entrada no es majestuosa pero una vez que estés en la 4ª planta, donde está la recepción, quedarás impresionado. Más aún cuando está considerado un 4 estrellas pero, cuya calidad de habitaciones y servicio es de un 5 estrellas. La habitación y el cuarto de baño son grandes y espaciosos. Puedes elegir el tipo de almohada que desees. El personal es solícito y atiende inmediatamente tus requerimientos. La ubicación del hotel es magnífica para ir de compras o degustar comida local cantonesa. Hay algunos restaurantes famosos en la zona comercial peatonal en los que se sirve una muy buena comida cantonesa. Este es el lugar donde alojarse durante unas vacaciones en Gz y como no es turístico puedes disfrutar del auténtico sabor local.
Siamo stati in una camera non fumatori Business a letti gemelli. Come dicevano sul loro sito web, la camera era molto più grande di quella che si trova normalmente in un albergo.
Un Hotel por encima de la media.
Nos alojamos en la habitación Doble para ejecutivos no fumadores. Tal como se prometía en la web, la habitación era muchísimos mas grande que en cualquier hotel normal.
Es un hotel relativamente nuevo con una magnífica ubicación. Se puede ir de compras en la calle peatonal que hay debajo de el hotel donde también hay muchos restaurantes.
El Dim-Sum servido en el restaurante cantones del hotel me resultó decepcionante. Las gambas rebozadas de supuestas calidad superior olían y era claramente obvio que este Dim-Sum estaba rancio. Hubo otro plato que sirvieron que estaba a medio cocinar.
Globalmente debo decir que es un buen 4 estrellas y estoy muy impresionado con la actitud general del personal. Así mismo el hotel está muy limpio
Above Average Hotel
We stayed in the Business Non-Smoking Twin Room. As promised on the website, the room was much bigger than any normal hotel room size.
This is a relatively new hotel with a great location. Shopping can be done on the pedestrain street right below the hotel. Lots of restuarants there too.
One disappointment was the Dim-Sum served in the Cantonese Restaurant in the hotel. The supposedly superior quality prawn dumpling was smelly and it was quite obvious that this particular dim-sum was stale. Another dish was found to be uncooked halfway through eating.
Overall, I must say this is a good 4 stars hotel and I am very impressed with the overall attitude of the staff. The hotel is very clean as well.
This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel. The first time was June 2006 when the hotel had only been opened a few months. During my first visit taxi drivers seemed to have alot of problems finding the hotel but the problems were not as bad this time as they have put up alot of signs at key intersections to make it easier for taxis to find the hotel. One driver tried to take me to the other Holiday Inn on Huanshi Dong Lu so I needed to explain that I wanted the Shifu Lu Holiday Inn.
Totally agree with lil bro's review, just one tip, try and get an odd room number as they face the front of the hotel as opposed to the building site at the back.
I was rather shocked at the 'shanty town' look of buildings/streets around the hotel, but it still felt friendly and safe. Try a walk through the shopping precinct directly in front of the hotel, great for bargains and nice restaurants, but watch out for pick pockets.
Un hotel fantastico
Sono assolutamente d'accordo con la recensione del mio fratellino: provate a farvi dare una camera che abbia un numero dispari dato che queste si affacciano sul davanti dell'hotel e invece che sul cantiere che c'è sul retro.
Sono rimasto piuttosto shockato dal fatto che gli edifici/strade intorno all'albergo sembravano appartenere a una bidonville, ma il quartiere era pur sempre tranquillo e sicuro. Ricordatevi di andare a fare una passeggiata nella zona commerciale che si trova davanti all'hotel: è ottima se volete fare degli affaroni e se cercate dei bei ristoranti, ma attenti ai borseggiatori!
