The Holiday Inn Express Chengdu Gulou proved to be a welcome surprise. Based on the rate, I expected the basics. Instead, I discovered first rate, clean, comfortable accommodations with a patient, first rate staff, in a central location. The room had a queen bed with an engaging view of the city. With all the activity of a bustling metropolis, the... More

I've recently checked in to HI Express Gulou in Chengdu. My flight was delayed and therefore I've requested for late check out until 6pm paying for half day rate. It amazed me when I was told by the reception that I'm not entitled the same rate coz apparently I've booked the hotel advanced booking offer. I thought being a regular... More

HI-Express Chengu Gulou is a no-surprises hotel. Clean and comfortable room, good service, tasty and plentiful breakfast. The location is good -- about 30 to 40 minutes to the airport, depending on traffic. Some interesting shops and restaurants within walking distance. All in all, a good stay.

We stayed at this location last April, though nothing about it was impressive, there is nothing to complain about either as it was pretty cheap and very clean and well located. So it met our expectations and needs. The beds are comfortable, the TV worked fine and there was enough storage. I was not a big fan of the bathroom... More

We arrived in Chengdu on day 13 of a 3 week China trip and found soft western mattresses. Thank you Holiday Inn! The bathroom had a great shower with a nice shower head and hot water. What was a bit different was that the door to the shower is also the door to the bathroom. No big deal, just never... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my family. I called a day before we checked in to request connecting rooms since asian hotels only allow 3 person maximum per room, and we have 2 teenage boys. I also requested online when I booked the rooms that we want connecting rooms/non-smoking. When we checked in, guess what? No connecting rooms available.... More

Stayed 4 nights here. No complain at all. Bed was comfortable which is rare in China. Our rooms were right in front of the lifts, but it wasn't noisy at all unlike some hotels. The staffs were always ready to help and guide, especially Kelly. Can hear the car horning away when window was left open. 20mins walk to Cuanxi... More

Same basic set up of the room but with a little twist: dark wood as opposed to the usual dull pine look alike. So, you feel like like in a better property. Excellent beds. Immaculately cleaned and maintained. Great service at front desk. This one actually has a restaurant that serves lunches and dinners. The biggest star is the breakfast!... More
