I have now stayed at this Holiday Inn Express twice. The staff at the Holiday Inn are polite and helpful. They worked efficiently and hard while I stayed there. The room I got was non-smoking and I was very thankful it actually was. Many times when traveling, a non-smoking room is just a smoking room that they turn the ashtray... More

The hotel location is great only takes 15 minutes walking to IFS city center and there are some convenient stores near by. The room is clean and comfortable with good shower.

Right in the middle of Chengdu where all the action is. The hotel staff and i remained pretty much lost in translation but everything other than that was superb.

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.

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.
