Q: Airport Hotel GZ

Hi Everybody!

 

Im arriving next week and my flight gets in late so my school have told me to get a hotel and they'll collect me in the morning.

 

I'm flying into Guangzhou International, can anyone recommend a nice hotel to stay in that's close to the airport, preferably with a pick up service?

 

Thanks! Smile

The GZ Airport has a Pullman Hotel, they are usually pretty great. But, if that is your start of your China experience, then it will all be down hill from there. (and with less cash in your wallet)
If your employer asks you to check into a hotel, it doesn't seem unreasonable if they also at least suggest you a hotel, and perhaps assist with booking a room.

Hotels in China are not booked/full, and IMO reservation is not required. Land and ask at Airport info about closest Hotel.

Ask your School to tell you, which Hotel is the closest to Airport.

Look at Agoda link above for more.

Or ctrip.com, elong.com

There are plenty of options and many can arrange a pick up.

The only hotel actually at the airport is the Pullman. About 650rmb/night. If you search agoda.com for Huadu Baiyun airport you'll find some cheaper Chinese hotels for 120-300rmb/night within a couple of kilometers. 

 

The BIG problem is getting a taxi to take you a short distance. They'll try to rip you off big style if you don't know what you're doing. 

 

What time do you arrive? Last metro from the airport is 23.00.

I live 200rmb away. Pm me and I will send a driver to pick you up.

 

My couch is free.

 

But in the meantime, you need to quiz the school. There is a good bus service from GZ airport that goes to all the major hotels.

Pullman is nicest and u just walk from the airport. But pricey about 1000+ rmb depending on the night. Lost of others with pickup and in the 300 range but im not man enough to try.

My best advice would be to look at the distance of the school and take a taxi near and crash in hotel they reccomend thats closer and cheaper and safe.

I stayed in GZ overnight once, someone helped me find the shuttle bus at the airport, which was a few yuan, paid him, knew it was a scam, but I never would have found the bus by myself. I booked hotel on Agoda, bus let me off at sister hotel, apparently my hotel was full, it was a real dump,,, I didn't have to repay,,, think hotels swapped fee and scammed me,,, hotel room doors were all open kinda dump,   I stayed up all night and just made beer runs.. morning free shuttle bus took me to airport,,, I later emailed Agoda and they refunded me,,, so the night cost me a couple of Y for free bus and beer money. TIC   ah the memories, my story is actually longer, I left out the part with Koreans

Don't rely on ctrip. I have used them many times, last week was the last time. I booked 2, 4* hotel, or so I thought according to ctrip. One in Shenzhen for 2 nights, which should have been a no star hotel, the service was terrible [ none existant] no hello, no welcome no have a nice day, or enjoy your stay, the place and carpets filthy. Old style  grey black granite and the most foul musty odor throughout the whole building even in the elevator the food fit for the' pigs', I was total disgusted. The other 4* hotel, 4 nights beside the Pearl River, very disappointing. On arrival I was not acknowledged, again no hello, welcome, Upon ask the direction to my room without lifting her head for her desk she just pointed. I had 4 bags the concierge did not offer to help. I booked a river view room, but got a highway view. Upon complaining I was told I needed to make a one time payment of 200rmb. 2 minutes after I settled in my new room the phone rang telling me I need to pay another 400rmb again I was disgusted. Next day changing back to the first room the concierge again stood and watched as I struggled with the 4 bags. After the 4 day stay there was still no good morning, or enjoy your day or thank you's. Service was just none existent. Beautiful hotel, however service was terrible. ctrip need to get they're act together.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
