I was a bit reluctant to review this hotel, as the two VT 'tip' entries seem to just be advertising with no content as well, and I do not like that.
However, the hotel is very good, although very expensive at RMB630 plus tax.
The rooms are fabulous, with a great shower (although it leaked water all over the bathroom floor, no matter how hard I tried to prevent it).
The hotel is well located, on the north-eastern corner of Guihuacheng, the old city
Unique Quality: The Cafe Champs Elysee and Jade Vine Restaurant are both verygood, if massively over-priced.
The Cabana Bar is empty but he new house band is excellent.
The travel agency will not accept credit cards and will not book train tickets (snobs!).
The hotel has free broadband access from the rooms, and there is an Internet cafe on the right hand side of the pedestrianised street alongside the hotel.
Excellent gymnasium and health spa on the 3rd floor.
International ATM in the lobby.
** Kindly correct the address - it's on 33 Zhongshan West Avenue**
Although the room is not exactly in mint condition, some areas are in need of a facelift, it is quite large in size, even larger compared to other hotel rooms in Hohhot - paired with very comfortable bed and pillows, means a restful sleep. Well, that's the very important thing in my opinion.
Selection of international channels e.g. CNN, BBC, ESPN, Starmovies, HBO, etc... too bad no NGC and Discovery though.
Unique Quality: After staying for more than 3 months and having compared with a few other local hotels which rated as five star, I'm honestly quite impressed by quality of service at the Holiday Inn. The staff's good command of English has helped minimize the frustration of language barriers that I've encountered everyday.
The best thing is that the hotel is within walking distant to Dazhao Temple (about 15 mnts walk or more), the Great Mosque and moslem street dotted with interesting looking architecture along the main road, shopping area and malls.
Airport pickup and drop off is provided as complimentary from the hotel. Quite a nice touch.
