“old facility but good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

For sure it`s a very old facility but still have good service and friendly staff. As you can expect it in every Holiday Inn across the world. On the 5th floor there have a Irish Pub. Guinness and Carlsberg on tab.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

This hotel was one of the early grand hotels (1930s-1950s) in Shenyang. It has been remodeled. The rooms have been modestly updated with new beds, bedding and some furniture updates. The room I had included a sitting area. Views were questionable -- too many high-rises for anything scenic.

The front desk and lobby staff were exceptional. Prompt, courteous, and helpful. Everything that would be expected at a classic hotel.

The second floor restaurant only serves "hot pot." The bar on the 5th floor is deserted during the day. At night it seems to be catering to more of a "gentleman's club" crowd than a hotel bar. Questionable patrons in the elevator.

For reasonable quick Chinese food, there are a couple of places right around the corner. Also there's a KFC and Starbucks. In the other direction, there are some small shops, a fruit stand right across the street, and other restaurants. Everything in easy walking distance.

The Black Swan Bakery ... just a couple doors down from the Starbucks .. has excellent chocolates and pastries. Huge, really huge, wedding cakes in the window. Can't miss it.

Stayed there for one night, was a very pleasant experience. They actually managed to give me a non-smoking room, frequent China travelers will understand that that is a big thing here!
Staff was friendly as well, professional check-in / check-out. Breakfast range slightly better than other Holiday Inn Express' (they had real cereals).

So, much recommended, also really close to the airport and it seemed there were some shopping streets, a Starbucks etc nearby. Only minor issue, is that they dont seem to have a gym.

Stayed for a couple of days in between 2 jobs.

Room was clean, big enough, TV channel selection plentiful, internet fast and stable, water pressure good and hot, breakfast was ok for a Holiday Inn (obviously not 5 star or luxury), staff was friendly and very helpful, no late night calls, small touches of comfort as additional water or cloth hangers were also provided without any problems.

Location is one of the very best in town, the view over the Zhongshan Square is breathtaking in the morning (not hong kong so), food options around hotel many . . . and the best . . . it does not want to be 5 star and is does not charge 5 star bucks. . .. I would under the right circumstances stay at Holiday Inn Zhongshan Square Shenyang again,

No doubt or question.

I was overwhelmed with my stay in Beijing Holiday Inn Express Dongzhimen, that I failed to notice the fact that on the website, Holiday Inn Zhongshan Square is a refreshed hotel. I chose it because its centrally located. It's the nearest to where I wanted to go.

Check-in was quick thanks to Ms. Han at the check-in counter. She tried her best to accommodate our requests. She spoke excellent English and was so pleasant. We were given a room with a nice morning view as we requested, but extra bed wasn't available. Busy time of the week.. The lobby was clean, staff were friendly, the 12th floor corridor wasn't bad at all but not as other HI hotels. The carpet, walls and other fixtures had signs of antiquity.

Our suite was spacious, TV with English channels worked fine, airconditioner was quiet, nice window view, bed and pillows were comfy, complimentary wifi and LAN connections were fast, room safe good enough, but the toilet and bath lacks the Holiday Inn character.

The Mulligan's Irish Pub on the 5th floor had a band playing good music. Great wine/drink list. A bit pricey than other bars, we had fun though. Staff were friendly. Other bar-goers were too.

I was about to end my day with a quick shower.. The shower handle/temperature control just fell off. Left with no choice, I put on my clothes, took pictures then went down to the reception to explain by showing them my camera. It was past midnight, but the maintenance and housekeeping staff were quick to respond. Three of them came. They were done in 5 minutes. Thanks to them! They told me they'll change the handle in the morning but I checked out a bit early so I never saw it repaired.

Breakfast selection was fantastic. Chinese and Western. Food served hot. Coffee was available. But it wasn't included in their Weekend Stay Promotion. I thought it was so we had to shed extra money.

Breakfast won't be a problem since there's a Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts and KFC on the ground floor of the same building where Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza Hotels are.

To sum up, staying here is expensive given their refreshed state. If I choose this hotel again in the future, it will just be because of their friendly staff willing to walk the extra-mile, central location and buffet breakfast.

Room Tip: Suite 1278 has falling shower valve.

The best quality is the location.
The staff is helpful even if often some of them do not understand well English.
The rooms, after the recent re-building are nice and very comfortable.
Breakfast is good and varied. It 'a very good value for money.
I will come back.

Old hotel, well located with courteous staff but unfortunately quite helpless (in manadarin or chinese). Rooms are ok, vintage to stay polite, but don't expect to find a nice bathroom: you'll take a shower in your bath and you won't watch TV on a plasma.

The biggest problem for me is the lack of soundproof from the walls, as most of the old buildings in China: you'll hear the chat, of your neighboor and people in China can speak quite loud...

The breakfast is quite good and the staff is friendly.

3/5 not a point more.
