Location, cleanliness, helpful staff”

Near to shopping, restaurants and easy access to transportation.

We enjoyed our stay at Holiday Inn Shifu for its good location to shopping and easy access to restaurants. We took the express bus from the airport and mistakenly disembarked at Holiday Inn City Center which is at a different location and had to take a taxi to Holiday Inn Shifu which is some distance away. So please note there are two Holiday Inns in Guangzhou. The hotel reception is not at ground level and is on the 4th floor but there are staff to help with the luggage. Overall a good stay but at a price for the location and the hotel standard.

This is my first time staying in this hotel. I was told by the staff they have finished furnish few floors and the room I am in in brand new furnished room. The room is clean and big. The toilet also excellent conditions. I love the hotel locations and also easy for shopping and food. You will go wrong with this location. I have tried their gym and the equipment are good with a good size swimming pool. If you are ask me where would you stay for future GuangZhou trip, business or leisure? The answer is definitely Holiday Inn Shifu GuangZhou

Fantastic room and location”

huge comfy beds, good clean toilet and best location right in the middle of liwan

I love the location of this holiday inn, set in the middle of liwan district, walking out from the hotel, there are great restaurants, a cinema, good and cheap shopping and massage (nearer to 7 day inn). It is a special experience especially walking around at night as it is afterall old guangzhou and you feel like you are in a period drama. Venturing further, there are many illegal food pushcarts, selling yummy food like smelly toufu. there are also many cute shops selling tea and accessories. It is also wonderful to return to the hotel when you need a break from the walking or want to use your nice clean toilet. The room is simply great and a good experience in itself.

Great location, excellent service, spacious room”

Holiday Inn Shifu Guangzhou ranks as one of my favourite hotels in China. First, location: It's situated at Shangxiajiu pedestrian street, at close proximity to some of Guangzhou's most renowned restaurants. A 15-minute walk south gets you to historic Shamian Island. Second, service: From check-in to check-out, we were courteously treated by their reception staff who were quick and helpful. When I asked for directions to some of the sights and restaurants, the reception staff explained patiently. At check-out, the attendant offered (without asking) to ring for a cab to take us to the airport. The lady cleaning the room was also very nice. Third, room: The room was spacious and clean.

Pillow definitely. Great location Facilities Staff fluent in English
Pictured menu at the Chinese Restaurant Smoking in common area should be prohibited

My husband and I have been traveling a lot for the past 2 years. The hotels that we picked are all walking distant to shopping areas and restaurants. At Holiday Inn Shifu, we found that we had the best sleep because of the very comfortable pillow the hotel provided. This is our third time staying at this hotel and we believe that our next trip to Guangzhou, we will definitely come back here.

large comfy rooms
the lobby is on a side street

This Holiday Inn is located at probably one of the best spots in Guangzhou. Was a little disappointed when our car turned into an almost disappointing alley and we saw the Holiday Inn hotel . You take the elevator to fourth floor and it's wonderful. The lobby is large, brightly lit with an ATM . The persons at the reception are friendly , speak excellent English and willing to go that Extra Mile. The rooms are large and spacious , breakfast buffet is exciting .Internet comnnection is free As you exit the hotel you turn left into a delightful street , lit up with colourful shops (essentially a walking street) , reasonably priced shops lovely food and with a carnival atmosphere - an amalgamation of the old and contemporary .

Electric wire to kettle too short.

The locality of the hotel is certainly a plus factor, so central that it is easily accessible by public tranport to other tourist attractions.Great restaurants such as the Shifu Court at the hotel itself.Other restaurants such as the Guangzhou Restaurant and the Dao Dao Ji are within walking distance makes the stay great.I have already reccommended the Holiday Shifu nto my friends and I'll be back to the same hotel for my future visit to Guangzhou.

Window view is not so nice though as it's mostly rooftops. Nice pool area, typical of Holiday Inn.

Location is great in the middle of Shang xia jiu pedestrian street, lots of great food all around, comfortable spacious room

We had a great time staying in Holiday Day Inn Shifu. There were many famous restaurants nearby, the famous Guangzhou restaurant is just across the road and Tao Tao Ju which is another restaurant famous for dim sum and authentic Cantonese food is down the road. Not to mention all the shopping around the area with charm of old Guangzhou. A great stay for a first timer in Guangzhou and those who love great food. Only small drawback is there are not many taxis coming that way as the road to the hotel is at a back lane. The staffs were very helpful n they won't hesitate to help you flag a taxi from the main road. We enjoyed our stay there overall.

Hotel to be considered for convenience ”

The rooms are clean and spacious. The lobby area s Wi-Fi enabled giving convenience for those hooked on the new media.
The lobby has a very limited sitting lobby area. At any one time, one 3-4 persons can sit, especially when one section is occupied by display of mid-autumn decorations. The lounge area staff chased people away if they do not patronise them.

The Holiday Inn Shifu is one of the good hotel to stay when one travels to Guangzhou. It is smacked right in the middle of Shang-Xia Jiu Road, the busiest shopping belt. It is also within walking distance from popular tourist spot. The staff are friendly and helpful. Very near to eating outlets, spa, hair salon, wet market and you name it. The prices of goods at the Shang Xia Jiu is also highly negotiable, making shopping a good experience.(80 words)

Had a really great stay in the Holiday Inn Shifu. We made the mistake of not having the name and address in Chinese as we left the airport so the taxi driver had trouble finding it but we got there in the end. The location was brilliant and we loved exploring all the little side streets and pedestrian areas. The staff were great especially the bellboys - they were very helpful at telling us where to shop and wrote everything out for us in Chinese. The room was good (although we had to be moved from the first room as it smelled of smoke). Overall a great stay.
