One thing about this hotel is that its location reminds me so much of the Philippines. I love that this hotel is hidden in the midst of an open area shopping center. It just unusual that a 5-star hotel (so they say) will be in this area. It's not bad, it's just interesting. I loved the hotel and I personally... More

Search on Trip Advisor led me to this gem of a hotel in the heart of the city. About 120.00 CNY away from the Airport , we had no difficulty in reaching this Hotel. A word about taxis is in place. Pre-booked transfer will save you the trouble & haggling which goes on in Guangzhou Airport. It does'nt happen in... More

Holiday Inn Shifu, Guangzhou is a very nice hotel property in Guangzhou. The reception area is very nice and the rooms are exceptionally good. There is also a branch of ICBC Bank in the hotel building. However, the problem with this hotel is its location. The hotel is situated in a kind of a flea market type of very dirty... More

This hotel is well managed and there are continual improvements. Most staff speak English well. Rooms are well appointed and spacious. No smoking floors are brilliant. If you are travelling for business or pleasure this is a great spot. Security is good, taxi's easy (although they do not record the number and give you the card like other hotels do).... More

The outlooks from our two rooms at this hotel were fascinating. One side looked over the Shangxiajiu Pedestrian shopping street and the maze of the residential area behind it. The other side looked down towards Shamian Island over narrow tree-lined streets. This whole area is mostly low-rise which is a nice change when compared to other areas in Guangzhou, and... More

If you have never set foot in Guangzhou before and wish to visit the city because of the reviews from friends and family then try staying in Holiday Inn Shifu. The hotel deserves 4 stars for their customer service and room comfort and cleanliness. The only set back is that the hotel is tad too close to the residential building... More
