Located in Panyu, Yushan Holiday Hotel is barely 5 minutes' drive from Shiqiao Metro Station and about a 15-minute drive from the Chimelong Water Park. Guests interested in sightseeing can avail the facility of car hire. Sightseeing trips can be arranged at the tour desk. For their professional needs, guests can make use of the modern business centre. Laundry, parking and complimentary Wi-Fi access are some of the other facilities on offer.
The hotel's 100 soundproofed rooms feature premium bedding and down comforters for a comfortable night's sleep.

Hairdryer and exclusive toiletries are provided in private bathrooms.

Spread over an area of about 100,000 square metres, the picturesque Baomo Garden is reachable in a 20-minute drive from here.
I've stayed at this hotel many times, all of them on business. Typical of many China hotels, priority is given to retail and the hotel takes a back seat in this case. Thankfully this hotel is spared the Karoake and Spas that plague most China hotels. In case you don't know, the presence of Karoake and Spas means that the rooms are used by their guests for the girls they bring up from the K and S. They usually return to the rooms at 2am and create a ruckus.
Service: Minimalistic, pretty girls on the front desk are efficient and smiley. I've stayed so many times here that you'd think they have my records but it is a task every time I check in.
Value: Good value, low priced for the comfort level.
Sleep: Relatively soft beds by China standards. Quiet, although it is set in a busy intersection.
Cleanliness: Clean, some spots on the carpets, a bit of musty smell. Poor by international (European and Japan) standards but good for China.
Location: Great, walking distance to the pedesterian mall, a 10yuan taxi ride to the subway station at Four bridges "Xiqiao", buses, food all nearby.

Good location but old room.
Great location in the center of the town, but the room was a little old, old carpets, no fridge, and an unbolted safe.
The free breakfest was bad, not many choices and only supersweet coffee

This hotel is in the heart of Shiqiao and bustling with people and traffic from early morning. The rooms at the back are away from the noise, but not too pretty a sight. Rooms and bed linen are still reasonably clean. However, the mattress is a little saggy. And, given that it was refurbished not too long ago, there are warning signs of slacking maintenance in the shower areas. It is heartening though, to note that the hotel management seems to have taken heed of the numerous complaints on the quality of the complimentary breakfast ( previously it was a couple of buns and a carton of milk delivered to the room). Now it is buffet style on the topmost level, with a few items such as plain rice congee with salted vegetables, some simple fried noodles, Chinese buns ( Mantou), boiled western sausages, vegetables, hardboiled eggs, sandwiches. Not up to international hotel standard, and most items may not suit Western palates, but edible if you can settle for a simple and light breakfast.
A couple of the front desk staff are quite friendly and courteous, but unfortunately speak only Chinese ( Mandarin or Cantonese). Wifi access is available at the lobby, rooms only have LAN access.
