“Great Value If You Can Handle The Neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We had a surprisingly pleasant stay at the Shifu. The price paid was truly a great value; we also opted for Club Lounge access, and it was well worth the extra cost. While the rooms could use a bit of maintenance, they were clean, large and comfortable. Breakfast in the restaurant and cocktails at the Lounge were OK, nothing special, as was the buffet restaurant. The Chinese restaurant was the best choice. The location in the old part of town was interesting, but, unless your focus is on local product bargain hunting, you'd likely prefer the newer areas to the east and north. There really wasn't much choice insofar as nearby restaurants. But for a near five-star experience at an amazingly reasonable cost, you can't beat this Holiday Inn.

As in most Holiday Inn hotels, the room here was big with double sized twin beds & complete with all amenities. The staff were quite helpful & can speak English well. The big plus for this hotel is its location. It was right in the middle of a busy shopping area so you can easily deposit the things you bought to your hotel then go back for more shopping. There were also a number of restaurants nearby & a big park where you can stroll & pass the time.Despite being in a shopping area, you could still have a peaceful night's sleep, maybe the rooms are soundproofed or we were just too tired to mind.

The hotel is so nice amazing big rooms . Good and a helpful staff. The only problem in this hotel is there is no wifi in rooms you have to pay more for the free wifi or just u can sit in the main lobby to make a free wifi Internet.

We loved the Shifu and found it to suit our needs completely. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The roof top pool was very nice. Great location too near market areas. The hotel was clean and very comfortable.

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.
