One of the best and newest is the Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou. A perfect location, more than 200 spacious rooms and high-level gastronomy are just some advantages of staying at the Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou.

Whoever travels to China often is already used to new luxury hotels popping up left and right. One of the most interesting cities in this regard is Guangzhou, a city close to Hong Kong. The renowned hotel chain Mandarin Oriental decided to open a property in the city lately.

The new luxury hotel has some competition in the city as other brands like Four Seasons, Westin, Hyatt, Sofitel or Ritz-Carlton already opened properties in the last years. Anyway, the Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou offers that much luxury that guests just can’t resist. The amazing rating on every website featuring hotel reviews demonstrates how nice a stay at the Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou can be.

60 square meters and more in every room

Staying at a luxury hotel should also mean enjoying oneself in a large room. The Mandarin Oriental offers this luxury for sure. Every room starting from the standard room that is called “Deluxe Room” got at least 60 square meters.

For an extra fee, guests may also book so-called “Club Rooms”. These offer access to the Mandarin Oriental Club in the 24th floor.

European or Cantonese cuisine at the Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou

Modesty may not be the strength of the new luxury hotel in Guangzhou. The Mandarin Oriental advertises its Cantonese restaurant “Jiang by Chef Fei” as the best Cantonese restaurant in the city. The elegant restaurant offers traditional cuisine of the Guangzhou area with a focus on local and fresh ingredients.
