4 star? You must be joking.Posted Mar 20, 2013
Location: Excellent location
I went on a business trip to Chengdu and chose this hotel because it was dirt cheap for a 4 star hotel. I was the only non Chinese resident throughout my stay and the staff could hardly speak any english which did not matter because I had my friend who translated for me. Well situated and acceptable. This is not a 4 star hotel but might be passed as a three star. This hotel needs a total refurbishment as it is tatty every where you look. The whole place needs to be gutted out and revamped.Do not forget to take tea bags, biscuits and toilet paper to make your stay more comfortable. If you are not used to Chinese breakfast ,you can only get eggs and dry toasts ( butter or milk not available) and a small selection of fruits. Having said all that, what do you expect for £20 per day inc breakfast.

Great valuePosted Nov 19, 2012
Pros: The price
Cons: The carpet and wall (dirty, bare)
Good location next to the river/canal. Easy to get taxis from the hotel (but not easy coming back from the shopping district0. Hotel could use some sprucing up - new paint, new carpets - wall was bare outside of a mirror, TV was on old rear-tube version in the corner, and some of the amenities (ex.: Lobby Lounge) were only open sparadically, but the bed (a huge king-sized one) was great and extremely comfortable, the rate (C$29) came with a great, full breakfast and the staff, although English was a challenge for them, were only too happy to help out in any way they could. Also only a short walk to lots of little Sichuan restaurants (mainly noodles). I'd definitely stay again, especially given the price, but stay away from anyone asking if you want a taxi from the airport, as the price will be brutally inflated (I spent CNY150 from the airport, but RMB 80 going there).

全然だめ。Posted Nov 16, 2012
部屋は暗い、壁も汚れている。エアコンのつまみは壊れている。 冷蔵庫はあかない。 風呂は途中から茶色い水になる。 朝食はコーヒー、バターも無い。ジュースはうすい。 チェックインも遅い。 英語スタッフもいない。

the hotel does give good value for money and is priced to reflect its limitations. it needs a refurbishment and there is a smell of stale cigarettes in all the common areas, The staff do not speak English and whilst we were there an English visitor was very disressed because she could not geta doctor. But you do get a comfortable room with all the required facilities at a very fair price, There is also the best street barbacue in Chengdu just behind the hotel, Breakfast best avoided unless you are really into local food.i liked the place, it had a charm and really makes you feel you are in the real China. The staff do try and help

Hotel ConditionPosted Aug 7, 2012 on Hotels
When we arrived we found that no-one spoke English, luckily my wife is Chinese. We went to our room which was on a non-smoking floor. It had not been cleaned or made up from the previous occupant but what we found as well was that the room reeked of tobacco smoke and there were cigarette butts in many places. The shower door had a large gap around it and the shower unit was higher than the rest of the bathroom so water poured out and went all over the bathroom floor which was very, very slippery as a result. The best description you can give the Hotel is that it is 'Very Tired' and in much need of a refurbishment. The staff were pleasant and helpful but were let down by their surroundings. We had booked and paid for 16 nights and would have changed Hotels if it had been possible.

Not 4-star at allPosted Jun 16, 2012 on Hotels
Seemed nice from afar, but it really wasn't. The biggest things that got me: the bathrooms were falling apart, as the shower and bath faucet were coming out of the wall and not just leaking, but spraying water everywhere and out of the shower. Also, they didn't have maps from Chengdu, they got maps that I'm pretty sure they stole from somewhere, then rather than give you one at the desk, they simply had one in the room that they charged you for if you lost. At least it was priced accordingly, but I don't know who gave it the 4-star rating in the first place

The Riverside Fairmont was a budget hotel at best - certainly not the 4 stars we had expected. The bathroom was infested with bugs, carpets and walls had miscellaneous dark stains, the complimentary toiletries were already opened and partially used, the fridge was locked and turned off, and the air conditioning only worked for three hours at a time meaning that in the 30 degree heat, we sweltered during the night. On the plus side, the staff tried to be helpful with their limited English and the location was ok. By the way, when it comes to the free breakfast, unless you like hot orange juice, old sponge cake, and celery - don't bother.
