Great hotel with apartment-like rooms
Reviewed 11 December, 2019
I stayed at the Wongtee V Hotel on two different occasions, each for several days on business, in November 2019. The rooms I was assigned were both very spacious with great views, more akin to nicely laid out apartments rather than typical hotel rooms. The hotel is across the street from the convention center, so if you have business there, the location is incredibly convenient. Otherwise, you are in walking distance of several towers in a central business district.
There are plenty of dining options available nearby, at the malls above ground (including one next door) and the huge one underground connecting the various office buildings in the area.
Breakfast buffet was good, though the hotel needs to make a bit more of an effort to provide protein options besides one choice of eggs and bacon or sausage. The options were one carbohydrate choice after another (dim sum, noodles, fruit, pastries, rice, cereal, congee).
The gym at the Wongtee was excellent with both cardio and weights (though I wished they would turn the volume down on some of the TVs). I didn't try the pool though it looked very clean and of good size.
As some have mentioned, the front desk isn't staffed with fluent English speakers, but I commend the team for calling someone over who could help or being sufficiently patient in working through the language barrier.
Overall, if you have business in the area, I would rank this as a very solid or top choice, particularly if there is a price savings versus some of the American-owned hotels located nearby.
A convenient location for Exhibition center just opposite

Stayed a week for an exhibition in the Convention&Exhibition Center just opposite..
Staff is nice and very friendly - but one could have wished for staff that master English language better. I KNOW, I was in China, but it IS not a cheap , quick solution in the sticks we are talking pretty spicy money her, and not all can be expected to speak Chinese.
Of the staff,Ms Liu and the Pakistan originated service guy in 1F and Lester at 26F stood out. Staff at Breakfast Buffet also very kind and helpful.
Breakfast buffet well assorted. Rooms clean - actually the maid surprised by speaking better English than reception staff !!??
Clean and spacious room

I arrived late in the night. The staff was smoothly arranging for a non-smoker room and room service (despite some language difficulties with the kitchen). The room is spacious and clean.
The gym was well equipped.
Breakfast was rather average - mostly Chinese food. No egg order counter and the quality of the intercontinental/american part of the breakfast is not very high. Coffee could be improved.
Good hotel in prime location

Very clean, housekeeping person really took care of the room. 5 star for her.
Breakfast was good, hotel staff were very nice.
There are malls nearby so you can walk to restaurants, cafe or pubs. The Convention center is just across the road. Family Mart is across the road or you can go to the Mall right next to hotel for food or to buy stuff.
You can reach the hotel by train, there is a train stop right near the convention center. Taxi from airport cost around 100 RMB. You may have to pay toll charge 13 RMB extra.
High up in the Sky. Nice hotel.

Hotel and serviced apartments are on the upper floors of this high rise. Very nice looking hotel with efficient staff. Decor and room furnishings are nice, but starting to get a little worn. Some of the furniture could use replacement. Great location if you need access to the convention center across the street, with easy access to the subway system within a 5-10 min walk. Good for business travelers. Needs just a little more effort from the staff and a refreshing of the rooms to make this a 5 star.
