Recent guest reviews
comfortable room, functional and spacious gym, decent indoor pool, breadfast is ok. Service by staff is good. location is very good Only downside is air-con not working when I checked-in, but this problem was handled well. Overall, great stay
Great location - in the city center. You can walk to all the local and international food places. Large, Spacious Rooms! very convenient location! Affordable. Quality is decent, but good for China. Starbucks is across the street. Catching transportation is easy from here.
Stay here for one night, the lobby was a nightmare, the music play at the lobby was so loud give me a hard time talking to other people. However, the room size and hardware same some point for this hotel. Huge standard room, a nice standing shower and a tub. Old but well-maintained. Super good location, recommended for a short visit in chongqing.
We visited Chongqing with group of friends and we stayed in Interncontinental for 3 nights. We were looked after like VIP guests from our arrival to our departure. Rooms were really nice and clean. Services and personnel in hotel very service minded. Especial thanks to hotel GM Sharon, who looks after her guests together with her personnel extremely well.
To me, Chongqing itself was surprise. Biggest city in the world by size. Very modern city on top of Yangtze river. Beautiful city. IFC was very well run and near city central. Great staff, especially day shift manager. She was so friendly and knowledgeable that We were very impressed. Room was very comfortable and clean. Near hotel is where all of city's attractions are located. Hotpot originated from Chongqing, try one, you will feel pain in your rectum., All night.
This is one of those big grand looking hotel. Rooms were huge and well decorated. Service is good. I had very comfortable stay. Location wise very very good. every place is within walking distance. Highly recommend this hotel considering the price, location and room size. Wifi is not that good, was really struggling to send emails.
It's two years since my last visit to this hotel when I reviewed it as one of my favourite hotels in China. However, not much has moved on since then and the decor is starting to look worn and the shift towards a Chinese market, particularly those from dongbei has led to lower standards e.g. smoking in the lobby, smelly corridors and shabby carpets/lifts etc. There is even a shop selling Baijiu and cigarettes in the lobby, just like a 1990's hotel in Northern China. I should also mention the token laowai singer/piano player that performs for the gawking tourists in the lobby bar - if you don't like being the centre of attention, this is not the place for you anymore. Chongqing does suffer from a drain problem and the same smell you will find in your bathroom, is unfortunately, prevalent at most hotels in Chongqing. The rooms are very large and comfortable and I cannot fault them apart from the ageing decor. I had a package sent to the hotel beforehand (for an event I was hosting) and the hotel rejected it twice saying that they had no record of my booking and I wasn't staying there. When I arrived, I also tried to use my Eastern Miles card and was told I would need to call a call-centre just to get my points activated. After a while a more experience member of staff was able to help me - a bit of extra training would go a long way (customer first, be helpful to guests etc.). It's still a good hotel, but I'll try somewhere else next time.
We spent one night at the InterContinental and enjoyed our stay. The room was first class, clean and comfortable. We ate dinner in their buffet restaurant and returned for the breakfast buffet. The meals were tasty and the selection was good. The hotel is located right downtown in a busy, modern shopping area.There are a lot of restaurants with a block or two but we were too tired from sightseeing to venture out. The service was good. I would be happy to stay here again.
As the title of this review says, there is not a single bad word I could possibly say related to this hotel. It is simply a perfect place to stay in. I got a room upgrade and a free drink in the bar. This was very pleasant stay in this excellent hotel! I can only recommend it further!
We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights after the 3 Gorges cruise. Location was perfect, next to Chongqing time square, nearby have many shopping centres, eating street and Hongya Cave 5 mins walking distance. Many tour buses also pick up from stop next to hotel. Super convenience for city visit. The hotel room was fitting the usual intercontinental standards, well maintained and comfortable beds. Accommodation with 2 breakfast included was lots cheaper than other countries like Australia, Singapore that we had visited. Will stay in this hotel again next time we are in town.
