With its swanky glass exterior and bold contemporary design flourishes, the Pullman Guiyang is an opulent high-rise stay in the heart of downtown. Within easy reach of Guiyang’s main historical sights, this imposing 33-story hotel offers unobstructed views of the ancient city as well as the area’s soaring mountain ranges. The light-filled lobby is kitted out in white marble, with a high vaulted ceiling, four colossal palm trees, and an uber-chic chandelier. The large guestrooms are equally bright and airy, with floor-to-ceiling windows, Midcentury-style furniture, fully stocked minibars, and Bose iPod docks. The bathrooms come in black and white marble and have walk-in rain showers and Roger & Gallet beauty products. Work off your jetlag at the state-of-the-art gym, relax with a game of billiards, or take a soothing dip in the large, low-lit pool. For dinner, head to La Provence, on the fifth floor, a fancy French restaurant overlooking the hotel’s lush landscaped garden; follow that with a nightcap in the Art Deco lobby bar.
In the Area
The Pullman Guiyang’s super-central location makes it a perfect base for exploring the local temples, parks and museums. For a history fix, make your way to the Jiaxiu Tower, just across the Nanming River. Built in 1598, during the Ming dynasty, this three-story building stands on the edge of a beautiful lake. For shopping, head to the charming Youzha Jie market, where you can browse the stalls for flowers, bamboo handicrafts and antique coins. The countryside in Guizhou province is spectacular, too; 15 miles south of the city you’ll find Tianhe Lake, an otherworldly region of crystal waterfalls, fairy-tale bridges and bizarre rock formations.
How to Get There
Front counter was helpful and courteous. Checked in at about 1230am and can see that the counter staff was trying to be fast so we can rest. Breakfast selection can be improved. Service staff were also friendly and helpful.
As in the past visits the people in charge to attend the customers are very helpful, specially Mr. Wang Yang, thank you for you help me.
Excellent this part. About the room the best can I say it keep clean and it is very important for me, congratulation.
Stayed here for six nights on floor 29, in one of the executive suites. It was the best hotel I have every stayed in. Comfortable, clean, friendly staff (Nothing was too much for William: thank you) and the food was 1st class. The breakfast was a banquet! Location was good too with everything within a 15 minute taxi ride away. Totally recommended.
Right in the centre of Guiyang. From airport it takes around 20minutes by car or 12km. On road outside are local shops and banks.
Room on 20th floor is quite spacious but unusual room for pullmans. Suffering from wear and tear and grubbiness around edges of room.
There is a large king size bed, comfortable with bed side tables either side that include lamps, telephone and alarm clock with old style Apple connection. Unplugging lamps allows plug sockets built into bed frame in which are two pin. There is a nice comfortable reclinable chair with a small table. Large double windows with a nice view of the city.
Facing the bed is a large unit with desk & lamp, large TV (with 70 channels including BBC, CNN and NHK) and luggage rack. There is also a kettle and some hot drink items.
Large wardrobes with Pullman amenities such as yoga mat, safe, slippers etc.
The bathroom is most unusual with an open plan set up with two frosted rooms, one with toilet and one with a separate unusual square bath and shower. This has a glass window into room but electronic blinds come down if you wish.
In the middle is the sink plus a TV for I guess watching if you are brushing your teeth but poorly positioned to actually see, you are not able to watch from bath. Amenities are all mini bottle Co Bigelow. There is digital Ac unit as well & black out drapes.
Overall the room is spacious and interesting but chipped desks and stains on walls & floor makes it not feel up to Pullman standard of cleanliness.
The hotel offers free WIFI that multiple devices can be connected to and also VPN's work. A connectivity lounge or business centre is on ground floor.
Catering includes a buffet restaurant and another one. Food is ok at buffet.
Leisure facilties include a large olympic size indoor pool, good for lengths. A modern gym, hair salon and a spa. There is also a garden you can walk around which is quite nice outside of buffet restaurant.
On the ground floor are some Chinese shops and ATM machines.
Staff are ok but don't speak much English. Check-in wasn't exactly warm and welcoming and not really the expectation of an international hotel like the pullmans.
Overall a hotel well located if you need to be in Guiyang, however probably the most worn out Pullmans I have ever stayed at. In need of a clean. Would stay elsewhere if came again.
The location of the hotel is good. Starbucks at the corner of the hotel. Room is good but a little small.
Staffs in the restaurant can only understand water, spoon, fork, yes, no or other basic words. Other than that, they didn't understand. We had hard timr putting the bill the the room as they said the food bill was above the limit that you put guarantee when check-in. Been travelling all over the world but this is the first time i experienced this. Tried to pay with cc, the restaurant only accept Unionpay card not international. Staff had to go down to reception to ask for the edc machine. Finally it worked.
Shower lay out got the bathroom flooded. So be careful not to shower too long.
