Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paulle58 Great Service, good hotel
I first stayed at an IHG hotel in 2012, the Crowne Plaza Shenzhen. The hotel was clean, comfortable and the staff were great, this become my hotel of choice when in Shenzhen, since then I have stayed at many Crowne Plaza hotels, ( I spend over 40 days a year away from home). All Crowne Plaza hotels were booked in Guangzhou this trip, so I decided to try another IHG brand, Holiday Inn Shifu, and I was glad I did. I spend my first day in Guangzhou at the Canton Fair and required transport back to the hotel, I rang the hotel and they explained there would be a bus, they gave me clear directions which I found easy to found. From the moment I arrived at the front door I received excellent service from the staff, they were well trained and very helpful.
The room was clean and comfortable, good location for business and shopping, food was good.
The next time I am in Guangzhou I will stay at the Holiday Inn Shifu and would recommend this hotel to my friends.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fub45 Convenient hotel on shopping street
This hotel is located on the shopping street (ShangXia Jiu Jie), where there are hundreds of shops and restaurants to go through. This being my 3rd stay, I realized that whatever i wanted to buy can be gotten on this stretch at a reasonable price without going to other shopping areas. For the hotel, it has always been value for money, however, due to the Canton Fair, the room rates were twice my usual prices. Overall a good hotel located on a popular stretch with the only downside being a lack of taxis when you need them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Melvinhsie Centrally located, but noise is a problem
I stayed in Holiday Inn Guangzhou Shifu for two nights during the national holidays. With the holiday promotion the price was a deal. The hotel is centrally located in old town Guangzhou, with many restaurants and shops close by. The staff at check in were warm and nice. The room was spacious and well kept clean although the hotel was opened in 2007. The rooftop gym is functionable. Room service food was good. The only drawback was soundproof issue: you can hear everything in the corridor from your room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KSeng An excellent stay in this hotel.
The hotel room is spacious and clean. This is a pretty new hotel too. Enjoy my stay there. The only problem I faced is the traffic. You can hardly get a cab/taxi. You will need to walk abut 10min to the nearest train station. Overall, this is a good hotel and there is also good food around the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AlvinC8 Incorrect shortcuts on phone
During my stay, I need to contact Room Service and Concierge. There were some short--cut buttons on the phone to connect to these services. However, the number was not programmed correctly. As such, I had to refer to the folder in the room for the correct number to dial. This is troublesome.
To add to that, I was charged local call charges for the wrongly dialled numbers through the short cut. While this has been waived, this should not have been charged at all, no matter how minute the amount. Either you provide a phone with a correct short-cut, or you do not provide the shortcut on the phone at all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TJD70 Saturday Night In Guangzhou
Arrived for a Daytrip on Saturday evening and had been upgraded which was great , the room was really nice and i asked for non smoking and got that .
The bathroom is good but the shower a little inconvenient as need to step into the bath which is high and could be dangerous getting out .
Breakfast on Sunday morning was average at best, arrived at 9:45 and juices were empty . The food in the buffet was not fresh and had obviously been sat there for a few hours without being maintained , For the price should have been better .
I was only there for one night but the room was excellent and i would highly reccomend as the location is very good .

We were here for finalization of our adoption. The hotel is right next to a very busy, but entertaining shopping street for walking only. We found grocery stores and restaurants within 10-15 minute walk. Reception and porters were great and very nice. Our only negative is that they only had a buffet for breakfast/ lunch and dinner with no other restaurants. It was great food but pricey for every meal. The pool on the roof was beautiful.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Thais2013 Very bad manner staff.Not worth paying.Platinum member is useless at this hotel. Cheated just little money, untrustable. Need serious improvement.
Not recommend anyone to stay at this hotel. You will become nobody right after you finished paying your bill.
I am Platinum member for 3rd years,member for 6 years.Regularly stay in this hotel for the past 4 year. This time is a real bad experience and very regret using the hotel. I was cheated with the parking fee. Bad manner staff. Bad service. Bellboy was on mobile chating, guest have to run in the rain to the car. Problems can not be solve even by the manager. Wasted our business time, doesn't serve our business trip purpose, business effected. As platinum member, I have everything upgrade but bad service, bad attitude staff. If such a well known hotel could not give good service, then what is the point paying to become Platinum Elite member. Isn't "good service" is heart for hotel services???????

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Berg1 China hotel
We have stayed at Holiday Inns all over the world on business trips, the Hotel itself is excellant as far as design with very large suit rooms, we stayed for three nights on the executive floor with the use of the executive lounge which was deserted most of the time, staff were very good and attentive plus most of them spoke English, room was very clean with all facilities you would expect, food was nothing special but eatable, the worst point of the hotel was the location, it is situated in a very poor part of the city and a long way from the centre, it took us an hour to travel there from the train station as the traffic is terrible as in most Chinese cities,its surrounded by lane houses and small shops, walking around the drains are very evident by the smell!
Its a pity as the hotel is excellant quality only as far as I am concerned in the wrong place, next time I will stay in the centre of Guangzhou.

In China, almost all the hotels provide free internet in the room.
I still wonder why Holiday Inn still not doing it. I do understand that it provide free wifi in the lobby. So does all other hotels.
I think it got to do with some international guide lines. But I think in tern of services they have to do what is provided locally. It does not reflect good on the hotel when all other hotels provide free in the room and Holiday Inn still charges.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by STAR1234 Big Room and Bathroom
The room and bathroom are big and comfortable.
The food in the lounge is very poor. Every day the same and even no egg, omelet availeble during the breackfast.
Even if we order an omelet, not possible.
I want to put one of the staff in the flowers.
It's Vanessa from the lounge. She is so nice and profecional for all the people in the lounge.
I booked the room long time before as a prepayed and non cancelation booking and when i checked the rate on the dag i arrived it was cheaper than the rate a pay. This can not.
Every time new staff. Thats not nice for the clients. Nobody stay long time in the hotel. Thats a pity.

The location is best for tourism and close to subway station. Service is good and professional. The only con for Canton fair is probably 45 - 60 minutes shuttle to Pazhou Expo. Overall it is a great stay.
