I can* meet you at the Airport or Train Station when you arrive and show you to my apartment, so you'll get a warm welcome once you arrive at Guangzhou.
(*Please contact me in advance. This service is for free but only available if you arrive in non-working hours.)
We are NOT close to downtown. It takes 30 minutes by bus to the closest metro station. But within one hour by public transportation, you can reach most part of the Guangzhou city.
There is no western restaurant, McDonald's, 7-eleven, and BANKS nearby. So if you are looking for a place that is close to downtown with rich night life, then we are not your cup of tea.
But there are supermarkets and inexpensive local restaurants just downstairs, you can buy all the necessary things and foods easily.
You can easily find a taxi downstairs.
From apartment to Airport: 20 minutes by taxi, about 12 USD;
From apartment to Canton Fair (Pazhou Venue): 35 minutes by taxi, about 15 USD;
From apartment to Beijing road (downtown): 35 minutes by taxi, about 12 USD;
From apartment to East Railway Station (train to Hong Kong/ Shenzhen), 20 minutes by taxi, about 8 USD.

Should you have any question or concern with the apartment, please feel free to contact me!

Our stay at the Budget Apartment was amazing. We were staying in the outskirts of the city. The apartment is set among the working class people. you can see vegetable gardens from the apartment windows. local grocery markets are close by, even though we spoke no Chinese, the people are very helpful. Matthew is a wonderful host who went far beyond helping with our visit. We extended our stay for another week. He showed us around Guangzhou, pointed out places we would have never found. I would recommend his apartment if you are on a budget, and mostly because Matthew is a wonderful host.
For those of you who are adventurous and on a strict budget, this is a great deal. Perfect for the young traveler or the young at heart. The apartment is in an urban working class neighborhood. It sits on the outskirts of the city center, approximately 60 min. via metro and bus. The apartment is well equipped, but somewhat rustic. With that said, Matthew could not have been a more accommodating host. Our stay was for 2 weeks. He assisted us with business meetings and translation when needed. He picked us up at our hotel and accompanied us to the apartment. He was always available when we needed assistance with transportation or any other questions we had about getting around China.
He accompanied us to a business meeting with a local company, and graciously made the deposit when our American credit card was not accepted. We recommend this apartment and hope you enjoy your stay as we have on our first trip to China.
I am with my girlfriend lived in apartments Matthew 2 weeks.
Matthew helped us to search markets, shows local attractions.
The apartment is clean, big. Have a kitchen, you can cook yourself and save money. Near the house there are all the shops and small cafes cheap. The nearest metro station 20 minutes by bus. The main disadvantage of this is no air conditioning.
For those who want to save money and live in the comfort of a good choice.
This was exactly what we were looking for! Mathew was very helpful, he picked us up from the train station and printed out sheets of directions for us as well. The apartment was great and cozy, and in a rather nice local area. It was that close to the downtown core, but we were perfectly fine with that. I would definitely advise staying here. Thanks Mathew
This is really good apartment for a budget traveller. It's very basic, but bright, clean and well equiped. It has a fridge, full kitchen, washing mashine and hot shower. And that's really good deal for the price you are paying. The location on other hand is not that good - it's about a hour from the city downtown. But that was not a problem for us, since transport system in Guangzhou is good and the apartment is near the bus stop. The owner, Methew, is really friendly and helpful guy, if you have questions or problems, he'll do his best to help you. So overall, we enjoyed staying here and wish good luck for Mathew!
I love to travel and I have been to Thailand, Cambodia and Malaysia. I love to spend some nights to stay at those cozy, friendly and distinctive budget guesthouses. It's my dream to own one such guesthouse. And now I finally can have a trial, with just only one apartment for rent.
The best part of running this apartment is not how much I earn, but the opportunities to meet people from all around the world. That makes me happy. I wish you will also be happy to stay at my apartment. I am looking forward to meeting you.
