I enjoyed my stay here (two different rooms, two different nights). Other reviews capture the property and amenities accurately (clean, good staff, western and Chinese breakfast foods, laundry, nearby convenience store, etc.). Only constructive feedback is that they need to deal with the mold beginning to show in the showers (and even on one shower mat). This is very easy...

I stayed in this hotel at the end of December 2016 and was extremely impressed with the friendly and helpful staff. My spacious room was spotless, quiet and non smoking, the bed was comfortable with a choice of pillows. Breakfast was complimentary with a good choice of Asian and Western style dishes. It has a laundry for guests with coin-op...

Always stay in this hotel every time I am in Chengdu. Location is nice. Easy to find eateries, convenient stores etc. Reception staff are very helpful and speak good English. Breakfast is sufficient although can be boring if you stay many days. They have live station for noodles but not for eggs. Well.... this is China. And don't ever ask...

Clean, comfortable rooms with good WiFi, easy-to-use heat/air con controls, great breakfast and friendly front desk staff. There is also a self-service laundry on the second floor--a rarity in China. Rooms were quiet. A nice, new shopping mall within two blocks; a convenience store across the street.

This hotel is OK. It is newer looking and they obviously went for modern. It was very clean gut there were a lot of downsides. Location was only OK. Safe enough but not near anything and VERY loud. I think Kareokee which went well into the night. Breakfast was HORRIBLE. Food almost inedible and choices very slim. Fried eggs so...

Very happy with our stay in this hotel. Staff is friendly & helpful, including the staff who helped me with the out of service washing machine. Self laundry & location are pluses; lack of mini bar is a minus. Will definitely come back here in the future if visiting Chengdu again.

I stayed for one night. I was in Chengdu to visit the Pandas and chose this hotel for it's central location. It is close to shops and central attractions. The service at reception was average. The staff I felt were doing their job, it wasn't about making people feel welcome. I asked a question about how to get to Dujiangjan...
