We didn't expect a 5-star, but we did get a very nice room and good location in Chengdu. We spent three nights in June with no complaints what so ever. Service was excellent. Breakfast was adequate and varied.

I have found IHG hotels to be reliable in China. This HI Express offers good value for money. Room is clean and quite spacious. Hotel offers DIY laundry service. Breakfast is pretty good given the price. Only thing is restaurants offer limited selection of food for lunch and dinner. If you stay here, you need to walk for 10-15 minutes... More

The location is excellent. It was certainly value for money because the shower worked perfectly, the beddings were great and the breakfast was exactly what I expected. I will stay again next time I am in town.

This is my second trip to Chengdu and I decided to give the Holiday Inn Gulou a try and I am glad I did.

We stayed here just for a night on our way from Jiuzhaigou to Zhangjiajie. The hotel is centrally located. The rooms are better and bigger than they normally are in Holiday inn Express. Overall very nice.

Decent hotel, although we had to book 2 rooms to fit our family of 4 in so put the price up a tad. Nice size room with comfy bed and a nice bathroom. Tried to communicate with hotel to arrange adjoining rooms, etc but to no avail. Generally happy with the service otherwise.
