I will be going to Guang Zhou (China) in August 2007, any cheap and good hotel to recommend. What is the best place to shop/wholesale market in Guang Zhou.

hi, Jack, welcome to Guangzhou!

Unfortunately, there is not many hostels or good guest house in GZ, i think. One Youth Hostel is near the railway station, but i don't suggest anybody stay near that place!

Economic hotels' price from about 150RMB/n for two person.

Just find some place near Metro Station, that would be very convenient.

Shopping recommend: Xi-Guan Area (Shang Jiu Rd, Xia Jiu Rd, Feng Yuan Rd...), this is the typical Cantonese style area, you could enjoy many snacks there, and shopping of course, in the pedestrian area, many shops.

for whole sale, it depends on what goods you need. the wholesale market in Haizhu Square, Yi-de Road, Huang Sha area are most famous for small goods.

Hi,

I was in GZ about six weeks ago. I stayed at the Guangdong Victory Hotel in Shamian Island. Actually I stayed at the annex around the corner from the main hotel. While it's not exactly *budget* (I think it cost ~ $40-something USD per night), it's extremely nice for the price, really comfortable, and the neighborhood is tranquil (in contract to most of the rest of GZ!). Also, Tripadvisor.com gives it the #1 rated hotel in all of GZ.

One more thing -- I had good success looking at hotel ratings on tripadvisor.com and then booking through sinohotel.com
