I stayed here 3 days for vacation. As an ihg member I have stayed at quite a few holiday inns in china and Singapore and I found this hotel above average and a great value. The rooms are a bit old which is to be expected but they were quite spacious and beds super comfortable. The service was also excellent. Despite checking in at 10am they made the effort to find me a room and then even switched me to a suite after it was ready. Also the maids realized that two packs of instant coffee was not enough for me and made sure to give me extra every day.
The hotel is directly adjacent to the crown plaza, (1 minute walk) and you may even need to check in there but it is a small inconvenience and actually a benefit. For instance the holiday inn does not have a gym but you can just use the crown plaza one which has all modern equipment and a huge pool. You can also relax in the crown plaza lobby which is much better than the holiday inn one.
Overall highly recommend holiday inn Zhengzhou!More
