Benevolence Hotel in Guangzhou as always is a great place to stay. Itl is a little out of the way on Xingye Avenue in Fanyu District; best to take the bus # 9 from Hanxi Changlong subway station. Bus stops right outside of lobby entrance. Benevolence Hotel is directly opposite to east gate of the substantial Hua Nan Country Garden Estate. Lastly it is possible to catch the free Hua Nan Country Garden Estate internal bus; get off at destination, walk outside and turn left for twenty metres you will immediately come across some pretty good western bistro restaurants. Lastly it is possible make use of swimming centre at Hua Nan Country Garden Estate for a small fee; by memory less than fifty (50) renminbi.
