3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My friends and I chose this hotel because of its location to the subway, however, we never used it. My check in was easy. The staff was friendly and very helpful, they also spoke good English. My friends had problems with their connecting flight and were not able to check in as originally scheduled. Once they provided proof, the hotel worked with them. I also notified the hotel of this so they were able to give the rooms away to other guests. The room was clean, comfortable, and did not smell like smoke. The corridors were quite and the breakfast was okay. It is located near a mall with a Starbucks, Burger King and Subway, as well as many Chinese restaurants and many shops. There are many small restaurants located on the streets near the hotel as well.

Excellent location, walking distance from TaiShen Road South railway station. A lot of local food near the hotel, only a few minutes of walking. The front desk staff were very helpful in providing railway information, such as the line needed to go to the Chengdu East Railway Station. There was a great selection of food and in my family's 7 day trip we were not bored once by the food. Thank you HI Express Gulou!!

Stayed at this hotel for business, the rooms are very spacious and clean. Staff very friendly and speaks very good English. Food was great with a wide variety of choices every day. Buffet breakfast excellent.

We were booked into this hotel by our tour group. I am not sure of location. It seems there are few hotels under same name in Chengdu and the one I stay is next to hotel Crown Plaza. The room is very comfortable and I love the open basin which is not located in bathroom making it easier for us. There is no mini fridge and the complimentary breakfast is excellent. Lots of western and Chinese. For breakfast we were asked to have it at hotel Crown Plaza just behind and just a short walk

This is an excellent hotel. Large clean rooms, very conveniently located and reasonable price. Our tour guide also said it is one of her favourites because of the location and price. Staff very friendly and helpful, usually could find someone with enough English to assist us. We arrived very early from the overnight train from Xian, and were able to be in our room by 9.30 am at no extra cost, which was most appreciated.

I enjoyed my stay here (two different rooms, two different nights). Other reviews capture the property and amenities accurately (clean, good staff, western and Chinese breakfast foods, laundry, nearby convenience store, etc.). Only constructive feedback is that they need to deal with the mold beginning to show in the showers (and even on one shower mat). This is very easy to remedy with a little bleach, not sure why they don't do it since the rooms are otherwise quite clean. When I arrived the first time, I was a little bummed to see street construction going on at 1 a.m. on a Friday night. But the room windows were double-paned so it was not disturbing at all. Note to guests, HIE in China do not have lotion in the room, so bring your own. And the carpets have thick padding underneath which is really enjoyable when your feet are sore from lots of walking.

Always stay in this hotel every time I am in Chengdu. Location is nice. Easy to find eateries, convenient stores etc. Reception staff are very helpful and speak good English. Breakfast is sufficient although can be boring if you stay many days. They have live station for noodles but not for eggs. Well.... this is China. And don't ever ask for cheese! Room is roomy. Big bathroom. The self laundry facility is a plus.

Good decent place to stay for couple of nights in chengdu. Fairly close & a 20 min walk to Tianfu sq. Has a shopping mall close by and a few restaurants. Very helpful staff though they don't speak good English. Decent breakfast too. Good wifi.

Very pleasant hotel. Comfortable bedding, clean bathroom, reasonable water pressure, complimentary coffee and tea n 2 bottled water every day. No mini bar though but managed to get one upon request. Breakfast good spread with western and Chinese. Lift operating with room key card. A DIY laundry room cw with dryer is a big plus. Location - is actually nearer to alight at Loumashi line 1 subway station. Take escalator exit E. From exit E out turn right walk straight to a traffic junction, cross over, still keep to your right walk straight till another junction,(on the right across the road of this junction is Ritz Carlton hotel)turn left from here you will see the holiday Inn on your left. We took the hotel advice to alight at Tianfu station and almost lost our way.(although is also walking distance) Is difficult to get a cab there too. From hotel one can walk to wide and narrow alley, chunxi shopping area and Tianfu square, they are all within 30min walk. Just ask for directions or Google map. If you going to see panda, take subway from Loumashi station to xiongmao station, and they have paid shuttle service (yellow bus) waiting there, bus ticket and entrance tickets purchase on board the bus. Directions to the bus are clearly indicated in xiongmao station. To shuangliu airport- you can take subway from Loumashi to jinjiang inn station, take exit C1 with escalator. Turn left walk to a Zebra crossing, from here turn left you will see a kiosk with sign written shuttle bus to airport. Is RMB 10 and about 40mins ride. Bus interval about 15 to 20mins. You can also take a cab tell them to minshan hotel(岷山酒店)cost about RMB 10, but have to make sure they are willing to take you there before you load your luggage. Because by the location they know you are going to take the express bus and they are not willing to take you.

Clean, comfortable rooms with good WiFi, easy-to-use heat/air con controls, great breakfast and friendly front desk staff. There is also a self-service laundry on the second floor--a rarity in China. Rooms were quiet. A nice, new shopping mall within two blocks; a convenience store across the street.
