Had booked 2 Club Floor rooms. In other IHG hotels the rooms and lounge are very good/excellent. But not here. Club lounge was advertised upon arrival as open 10.00 - 22.00. So no breakfast available. Then it turns out it is only open 14.30 - 21.00. Useless - no breakfast and no lunch and nowhere to work !!! Even being in the lounge -eventually - was awful. It was 28 degrees, very humid, no air, no windows and even the staff complained !! Very, very uncomfortable. Even the huge fridge was turned off and what soft drinks which were available were WARM !!! Tried to have breakfast on 7th floor - 2 coffee machines and both out of order. Tried to have dinner - buffet - at 20.00 but almost everything had already gone and nothing being replenished (people eat early in China). Went to the bar on 6th floor - empty (same as previous visit) no drinks, empty bar, no staff. Even at 21.00 and 22.00. Pointless. Room was OK, shower good, but Air-Con didn't function as A/C and made a terrible racket as if someone was constantly playing castanets !!!
Booked a 1 night stay at this hotel for a business trip.. The pros of this hotel are its location and the large room. It is located within a shopping mall and very easy access to food and shopping. Room is big and nicely decorated. The cons are: Check in and out are slow because there is a lack of staff. With only 2 staff, and each process may take 5 to 6 minutes, and this means a 20--30 minutes if there is 3 to 4 in front of you. Check out at the Executive Lounge is not available. Air conditioning in the room is not working well. The room was warm and when I opened the window for ventilation, traffic noise came in. Executive Lounge closed so early at 9pm. It is unusual compared to many other similar Holiday Inn lounge where it stays open till at least 10 or 11pm. Otherwise it is a good hotel.
I was surprised to get a good service. I was upgraded to the executive lounge with dinner and the hotel offered breakfast as well. The option of breakfast was really amazing as I haven't had a decent hotel breakfast for a long time.
Second time at this hotel and it's probably the best bet at Shijiazhuang. The service, quality of rooms, sleep quality, noise level, amenities are all top notch. To add to it, the price is just unbeatable. Stayed for two nights at 700 CNY is surely a steal. Highly recommend this hotel.
high quality, well designed hotel with big rooms. Unusually for China, the non-smoking floors did not smell of smoke at all. we ate in the Indian restaurant - food and service was good. There isn't a huge amount of non-Chinese food options in this city so the HI is a good choice if you want something different. The concierge and reception staff were very friendly and helped us with written prompts for getting around
It's one of the best hotels in town. It has a modern looking decoration all around, with room service (limited by time though), and in the heart of Shijiazhuang, close to major shopping malls and restaurants.
The hotel is situated in a modern building in central Shijiazhuang. Rooms are nice and spacious with good shower and bath. The hotel has swimming pool (to be used only with swim cap) and gym also ok with weights up to 40lbs and some treadmills and squat machine. Breakfast was ok with some staff speaking english. Only 2 issues: first, when you arrive, the hotel gives you a feeling of being not too clean and well kept (but this is very typical of any chinese hotel so no big deal for me, for a foreigner, might be an issue). Second, I ordered a caesar chicken salad: i was expecting real chicken breast on it but unfortunately, chicken was some sort of pre cooked meat in the form of small cubes...uneatable.. In conclusion: i guess one of the best options in town..somewhat recalls western hotels. Recommended
Stayed at this property for 2 nights. The location is quite central to every place in Shijiazhuang and it is located above a mall. There is a haagen dasz and Starbucks in the mall. Reception and welcome was warm and check in quick. The rooms were extremely spacious and our room consisted of two double beds. The room amenities are excellent too. Hand showers and rain shower in the toilet along with a bath. It was excellent. Good selection of local and international channels. The air-conditioning was a bit iffy. But was sufficient. The room fittings were not of very high quality. The have a gym, yoga room, sauna and swimming pool on the 21st floor. Nothing too extravagant but very acceptable. On the whole had a very satisfactory stay here and can see myself coming back here when we're in Shijiazhuang the next time. As a gold member was given a bowl of fruits along with a hand written note welcoming us to the property. Very thoughtful.
We have stayed at this hotel for about 8 days at a stretch and love the Hospitality of the staff very much. We were like an Alien in this city, but the hotel staff helped us a lot. The morning Breakfast was the superb. Holiday inn has indoor heated pool too.
Second year i come to this hotel for one week and after a five star note last year , I will give only a two stars note. I am completely offusqued that the pool became a swimming school with only 25% allowed for me and my children. Secondly , they ask us to wear swimming hat (30¥) to swim when teachers don't have any and put their shoes in water. It is just not acceptable! We are not in olympic pool but vacation pool. Rooms are still ok for a four star hotel. It is the last time in this hotel even I am member of IHG
