“Great location and spacious rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Shifu on my first trip to Guangzhou. I was thoroughly impressed with this hotel. The staff were polite and very helpful. We had a very large room with a beautiful marble bathroom. The hotel was clean and nicely decorated. There was a roof top pool and gym, which also had a nice view of the city. It was close to the subway, restaurants and shopping. I would definitely stay here again.

I have been staying here for the past few years while here, its central located in the middle of a shopping district, the service is great, food is ok, breakfast is a mix of Chinese and western. selection is good, bedrooms are large or should i say very large, the largest in the industry if you ask me.bathrooms are large and clean.
Internet connection at times is slower than usual but all in all nice place to stay, I know FEDEX uses this hotel for its pilots. service is great and staff very helpful.

Room Tip: get a high floor or else you will be looking into peoples bedrooms>

As expected, we had a very good stay at Holiday Inn Shifu when we decided to tour Guangzhou. Definitely 5 stars! The guest rooms were big, beds were comfy and what the kids enjoyed most was they had a choice of pillows -- soft, firm, rice, and feather (not sure with the last one). You get a feeling right away that you'll be staying in a classy hotel right from the start.

Though it is quite far from the airport, the hotel's location is very near the shopping area and numerous restaurants. It is a welcome respite after a long day of going around the busy, dirty and crowded streets of China.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Shifu on my last visit to China,this is a really high quality hotel. The room was luxurious and spacious, I had a bath tub and walk in rain shower in a beautiful marble bathroom.
The king size bed was as good as anything you get in a 5 star hotel,very clean and the air-conditioning worked well.
Staff were very friendly and polite, the restaurant on site was amazing, vast international range of food to choose from as well as the Chinese favourites.
You know your in a provincial city when you step out into the streets but the hotel makes for a nice escape after a busy day .

This is our second visit to Guangzhou for adoption purposes. Last time we stayed at the White Swan on Shaiman island. I have to say that this is a much nicer hotel on the inside. The rooms are bigger and better layer out. The staff is a little nicer and more accommodating. You definitely want to join the rewards program before you come. While the Swan did accord you a feeling of being away from the hustle and bustle. The Holiday Inn puts you right in the midst of it. Don't let the outside put you off. We are thoroughly enjoying our stay here.

I was there for meeting at GZ. Normal i will use other hotel, but due some reason i choose Holiday Inn, Shifu GZ.
All things are perfect, room are so big and best view from 12th floor + everything is completed. U even no need bring ur iphone charger, it's avaliable. Bed room (the most important thing) quality is perfect, awesome.
Breakfast food is so good, it's halal for mooslem. Sometimes some of my friend are afraid travelling to china due food consist of pork. But this hotel is a pro.
my room is excutive room, it's cost RMB 758/night. It's so f**in cheap ^^
below the hotel it's llike Kowloon ot Tsing Sha Shui area at HK, you can find so many good quality stuff at so lowest price.
This hotel is closed to Shifu MTR, walking around 10 minutes. Around there also a Central Plaza, selling many things.
Perfect hotel, I will come back to this hotel on May 2013 ^^ awesome

Have to say that my second visit to the Guangzhou Shifu in October 2012 for Canton Fair was just as good as my last. The staff are fantastic especially as they greet you on street level and guide you onto the premises and this is very nice. (The hotel lobby is upstairs via a lift.)

Our room was large and well-serviced as usual. I would especially recommend this hotel to solo travellers. One never has the opportunity to feel isolated or bored. Outside the hotel there is so much activity and so much to explore. I never feel uncomfortable walking around alone in this area. We will always choose Guangzhou Shifu Holiday Inn for the Canton Fair.

Room Tip: During Fair times we would choose lower floor rooms as the lifts are quite busy.
