“Courteous but faraway”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2010

Hotel staffs are courteous and friendly.Even better than many hotels in Western countries.
However,they wouldn't exchange foreign notes that were wrinkled.In Shanghai,people told me about rural mindset in there,maybe this is one of them.
Location is far.I had to call a cab to go to Jiuzhaigou national park.By Western standard,the taxi fare was not too expansive.
There are many hotels near Jiuzhaigou national park.They are probably cheaper.(Though this one is not that expensive.It is about US100).But I chose this one because I thought Holiday Inn might be more professional.
Next to the hotel is a small town modeled on an ancient Tibetan village.There are grocery stores and pharmacies and an entertainment center there.

Tibetan style hotel with 600 rooms. Clean and looks new. It is located about 20 mins drive to Jiuzhaigou Park. It is quite a deserted town - Jarpo. Nobody stays there except the hotel guests and staff. It is about an hour by taxi from the airport and the road is pretty dangerous if you travel here after dark.

Within walking distance is the Jiuzhai Paradise Grand Theater where Tibetan Minorities Show starts at 8.00 pm everynite. The ticket is about RMB 150.00 but the hotel concierge could get it for RMB 130.00 per person. Well, it is a nice show about 75 mins with plenty of dancing and singing.

The room is quite ok and comfortable and every call to the reception is managed efficiently. We had a problem with the shower and within a few minutes of our call, the housekeeping staff is right there at our room.

Hotel lobby is nice and large and the concierge is equally helpful.

Breakfast is nothing to shout about as it is mostly local foods. Restaurants at the nearby Jarpo town down the street is also not tasty.

Better to pre-book your taxis back to the airport as well to the JZG park as there is practically no taxi is waiting outside the hotel.

If you have time, you can wander around the hotel vicinity, as the buildings here are nice with its Tibetan style. You would have a good photo session here.

Holiday Inn is a great place to stay in JZG. Its 1.5 hrs from the airport and 0.5hrs from JZG town on the same route. The Hotel itself has been rebovated from the old JZG paradise resort with old world granite rock work and tibetan ethnic interiors. Rooms are quiet comfortable complemented with a welcome tray of fruits to relax you. Room service is good, caveat being that not many speak english so one has to make do with whatever mandarin one knows. Tip : If you can get hold of this guy called James he will be a great resource.he knows english and he certainly does know the area around.
Although Holiday Inn seems like the perfect stay but I would still suggest try and spend another $10 per night and stay at the intercontinental whch is 4 kms fro holiday Inn. This hotel is just brilliant with a choice of watering holes and restaurant and a fabulour spa with glass ceiling and the works. And us having being in sichuan at the time of the terrible earthquake can vouch for the fact that intercon can handle those tremors!!
As for taxis is JZG try and fix a price and make sue you bargain shameslessly. everything in that part of the country can be bargained. So, make sure you dont pay the quoted price even for bananas.
As for the JZG town the day trip to the JZG natural park is worth every penny but that just about it. I really didnt see the utility in seeing similar places two days in a row. Can get pretty monotonous after a while.If you have free time got to huanglong or jst go to chengdu and see pandas.
I have heard sheraton can be booked for 650 RMB in which case thats the best bet around, it being closest to JZG town and the park. Check before you decide on the hotel.
