Nice hotel, good atmosphere
Posted Jul 4, 2015
A good hotel but about 20 mins from the city centre. Taxis are so cheap in Chengdu meaning that doesn't really matter though.
You won't find anything good to do within walking distance of the hotel, lots of slums and poverty, nearby apartment blocks so deteriorated they look like they're about to collapse. If you just want a base to spend your time with a few trips out, this hotel is perfect as it's very westernised and has an excellent restaurant which always seemed to be open. If you want to wander round exploring without using taxis, stay in the city centre where it's not so run down. All in all a posh hotel that's very comfortable with good facilities.
