Rated 3 out of 5 by PrimeMinister80 A hotel of average standard
Not yet up to professional standard in many aspects;
The best thing of the hotel is the manner and helpfulness of the front desk staff.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jezz Air quality problems
The air quality in the room was appalling. The air circulating in the room smelt like it was being pumped in from the main road and was full of fumes. We checked out within hours of checking in as we felt it would be injurious to our health to stay as we developed severe headaches within minutes of staying in the room. The hotel needs to put an air purification system in place. Although we were expecting Foshan to be polluted we were expecting the air quality in the room to be much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Explorer Value hotel
I stayed in this Aloft hotel for 3 nights. I have stayed in Aloft in Belgium before, so i knew what to expect.
This hotel was quite new when I stayed there, funky, good music outside the main entrance. The front desk is very helpful and friendly, one guy spoke english good but the others are not really, so sometimes I had communication problems. The room was really good big and spacious with a big tv on the wall front of the king bed, everything was clean, bath also clean and big. The pool is good to relax after a busy business day. Positive that the hotel had a shuttle to the fair for a fee, cheaper than a taxi.
The location is not that good, far away. Safe but nothing to do. I took MTR from Guangzhou Railway Station, changed lines and took about 10 stations and there I took a taxi, the driver did not know exactly where is the hotel even I handed him a paper with chinese text with the address. And this happened at night, I told the driver to stop when we were to pass the hotel. it was an adventurous ride! I walked around and found a small area with a shopping mall 7-8 minutes from the hotel. Did not find any international restaurants, only locals, so I bought a suitcase for my samples. The breakfast was good, average selection of foods. It was strange that the ice cream was for a fee.
Overall this is a good hotel for business stay but far away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SusieK Chic, Hip, Fun . . . But
This was my first Aloft stay. The fun, funky atmosphere delighted. The staff is obliging, though in many cases their English is limited and that leads to problems. The hotel is far from the city and a cab ride downtown is pricey for China. The buses are packed to the gills. The city needs to add K5 buses.
The rooms are comfy and chic and the common areas are fun. The restaurant's menu is standard hotel fare. I'd hoped that such a dynamic conceptual hotel would be more inventive with the food.

This April I stayed here twice.
Everything is the same as my first visit back in 2011.
Front desk staff still friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and spaciuos, plenty of space in bathroom and shower. Breakfast still the same but this time I missed the beans..
Keep up the good work!
I tried the local bus for a ride, was adventurous!
