Holiday Inn Jiuzhai Jarpo
Ranked #6 of 211 Hotels in Jiuzhaigou County
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Booked by a local tour operator and we stayed for two nights. Interesting design adopting the local tibetan and qiang's culture. It's a sizeable complex and while the lobby is big and appealing, getting to the room took felt like 10 minutes passing 100 rooms on the ground floor so do ask for closer rooms if you prefer.

The two signle-beds room and the bathroom was spacious but that's pretty much the only pluses. Bed comfort was just ok but that would be below the Inter-continental (owner) standard. Free Internet only by cable. The real problem for me was no proper heating given the cold weather. Fortunately, front desk made available a mobile heater.

The real shock for me was seeing a mouse entering the room from outside in the early morning! It ran away quickly as I moved but never expected that and first time in any hotel I had stayed.

Buffet breakfast was good. The place is about 30-45min to Juizhaigou park and about 1-1.5hr to the airport. The name is a little confusing in Chinese as both the Inter-continental and Holiday Inn has Juizhaigou Paradise associated with it but they are like 4km apart so check carefully if arranged by a local tour operator.

It's an intersting and a decent 4-star hotel catered for big tour groups. We were told by the tour guide that Holiday Inn is a top hotel among the 200 pluses hotels in Juizhaigou. Deserved a 4 star if not because of the little visitor!

Even though we speak some Chinese, it was still quite a struggle. The staff just isn't well-trained and the hotel suffers because of it. The rooms are nice and the building and decor are in some places very nice. There's no heat in the rooms so the only warmth comes from mattress pads that heat-up. It's located in a beautiful valley and there's nearby horseback riding through the great scenery (actually the horses are led through the ride-you don't control them). The included breakfast buffet was not attractive especially for Westerners. The other buffets were also sub-par but ordering off the menu was better, but expensive. If you can afford it, their sister hotel the Intercontinental, is staffed with more English-speakers and the food and service are far better.

The Holiday Inn at Jiuzhai Jarpo near Jiuzhaiguo National Park is 3 hours bus ride from Huanglong airport, which makes for a very long and tiresome trip. This Holiday Inn features unique Tibetan architectural style and not your usual western Holiday Inns. The hotel is situated in the mountain and is quite cold during our stay. It is about a half hour drive to the park. The foyer is beautifully decorated in Tibetan style and furnishings. We did not have any problem with our room nor with the staff. The dining room serves buffet and a la carte (Chinese cuisine) which is satisfactory. One should not expect western Holiday Inn standards to be met in this property. Jarpo town seemed to be almost deserted, and the buildings in need of obvious maintenance and upkeep. The Tibetan Cultural show across the hotel is excellent and could be an very enjoyable entertainment (Mandarin spoken) after a spending a whole day at Jiuzhaiguo National Park. At best, a 2 or 3 star (western standard) establishment.

The hotel had free internet in the lobby, but the lobby area was cold since the doors were often open and it was cold outside. The buffet breakfast and dinner were edible and slightly enjoyable. Pick up fruit along the way from Chengdu since there isn't much fruit in JiuZhaiGou. Bathrooms are pretty rugged, but overall "ok" place to stay. Not sure if my postcards will ever make it to the United States.

Stay at holiday inn for two night on 31 May & 01 Jun 13. When reached there on 31-May, temp at the location was 5 degree, freezing cold. Hotel lobby n restaurant was hugh n nicely decorated. Room was comfy tough look a bit aging, a refurbish to make it more modern look would be good. Toilet was icy cold, water drainage not so good, floor get wet easily. Luckily warm water & pressure is ok.
Staff is very friendly & helpful. Like to compliment the lady staff who bought the extra bed warm cover, tip her but she refuse to take, was impressed by her service attitude n honesty.
Breakfast selection was good but would be a bonus if can have a counter to serve fry eggs, omelette etc upon guest request. Would like to compliment the staff mike whom is very helpful to attend to our request for fry eggs. Noticed the orange juice etc are warm type, would prefer cold juices or at least should provide ice.
The hotel is surrounded by beautiful mountains. Shops at lobby sell souvenirs, winter gears etc. Overall, a nice hotel in the mountain area.

We had long trip from Cheng du by bus and when we reached this hotel, we kinda wow seeing the building. The lobby looks unique with ceiling drawing. Though most of the front office staff hardly understand English, but they are very helpful. We got a clean room but it was extremely cold though it was summer. Well, summer in Jiuzhaigou was like 15C.We asked for additional duvet and got it in seconds.Buffet dinner was good but it was not international buffet. Though some Western items served but they were still cooked in a very Chinese style.Buffet breakfast was again Chinese breakfast.The concierge was very helpful. We asked for directions to some shops near the hotel yet the bellman offered us a free shuttle though it was kinda late already. I can only say that maybe some of the reviews telling us not to stay there but what we experienced - it was truly good.

I stayed in Holiday Inn Jarpo in June. It's an hour drive from airport, 1.5 hours drive to Jiuzhaigou National park and around 3hours drive to Huanglong park. The hotel provides different types of car rental for transport, but it's very pricey. So, I rent cab for rmb 200 to Jiuzhaigou national park and rmb 600 to huanglong national park. The concierge help me book it.
The room is very clean and spatious for chinese standards, bed is also softer compared to chinese standards. however it didn't have a panel to control the room temperature. My room is facing the main road, which is a good view. In the website, it's written that they have wifi, but apparently they don't. TV only got chinese channels.
The lobby is nicely designed but very cold. The restaurant interior is below Holiday Inn standard. They serves buffet, but I'm ordering ala carte (all are chinese dishes), taste was below my expectation with Holiday Inn's price standard.
Nothing much you can see in and around the hotel, it's just nice to stay in the room after full day hiking.
