Reviewed 27 August 2017

Stayed here for 5 nights. I like the location because it is in the middle of the famous Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street and there's loads of cheap street food and popular restaurants within walking distance. But it's quite a walk to the nearest metro station.

Room itself was very big and comfortable, had all the amenities you would need. Toilet can be improved cos the water always goes everywhere using the sink and shower. Our toilet had choking problems during our last two days which was quite a mood spoiler but no biggie.

The hotel was having a promotion for its dinner buffet. Good price but ended up not trying as the food didn't look fresh.

Good service from the staff.

Stayed at this hotel aug 18-20th, had a wonderful experience. Was upgraded upon arrival(which is always nice), along with complimentary beverage (also always nice hah ). From the staff at the front desk, the sweet and helpful bellmen and the attentive female bartender ( don't remember her name but she was great!) really MADE my experience. Honestly they are so accommodating- it made all the difference, especially being a foreigner who doesn't know a lick of the language and oftentimes felt very overwhelmed within the city. I also traveled here alone and always felt more than safe.
The accommodations are a 7-7.5/10, it is a nice hotel but it's not new. Everything is well kept and nice and clean!

Overall I will DEFINITELY stay here again next time I'm in Guangzhou!

1. Excellent location in old Canton

I decided to stay at Holiday Inn at the recommendation from someone and I didn't regret my decision! It has an excellent location, situated in Liwan district (shangxiajiu) , a shopping haven! Initially I was still deliberating to stay in this area or Beijing Road... I didn't regret my choice! Many food options near the hotel too and it's a stroll away to Shamian Island, another interesting place with European colonial building and architecture.

2. Great service by Ben (bellboy at the concierge)

This review is long overdue but I would like to compliment and thank Ben for his great advice during my stay in the hotel from 23-25june! As a solo female traveller who did not plan for this trip at all, I was totally unplanned on my itinerary. Through talking to Ben, he has given me great advice on where and when to go... It was always a joy to see him on shift as I knew I could always turn to him for great advice on what to do / see / eat. Thanks again, Ben!

3. Great breakfast spread!

4. Upgrade of room to Executive level (L11) but.....

I was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to the executive level. Room is really big but I agree with some guests that the 11th floor reeked of smoke smell which I'm allergic to, although I've specifically specified non-smoking room /level.

The sound proofing is also quite bad as I could hear noises from outside of the room.

Overall it was a very pleasant stay!

The hotel is situated across from the railway station for the train to Hong Kong. But don't buy your tickets for train at hotel, as they charge you more. The rooms are lovely and are a good size. The service is good also.

I've stayed in this hotel 4 times now and am planning to return in October. You won't find a more convenient place to stay, especially if you want to do shopping for beads at Liwan Plaza which is just a very short walk away. I've stayed in the hotel on my own, and found it so convenient and safe to explore the streets and markets. Easy to find your way around without worrying getting lost. The walking street is packed with people and if you like that kind of buzz you will love it.

The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The room is spacious, modern and very comfortable. With all the places to eat in the vicinity it is really so convenient.
