The Holiday Inn Express Hefei is centrally located in the old town. There are a large number of both Chinese and western restaurants in the vicinity and very easy access to a couple of pedestrian
only streets. At the moment there is a significant amount of building work taking place where the hotel fronts on to Changjiang Zhong Lu but there was no noise at night (at least on the 11th floor) and it was not a major inconvenience.
It is also a relatively short walk to get to the gardens which surround the city centre, which makes this a good place to stay.
What elevated the stay for us was one member of staff, Ally, who spoke quite good English and went out of her way to do things to help us. Other staff were good, but she was excellent in her attitude and her attention to detail. We enjoyed our stay in Hefei and Ally was a very large part of the reason why. [Less]
