I read a few TripAdvisor reviews before I went so I was adequately warned of the cons (construction, loud noise, hard to find hotel). While it was a bit hard to find once I let the cab go, I simply called the hotel and they...More
Chengdu has an array of hotels that are just like anywhere else, if you're looking for something a little different then definitely stay at BuddhaZen. After seeing some photos I knew I wanted to stay there. Built in a classic Chinese traditional style with a...More
I stayed here with my 8 year d daughter . The hotel itself is beautiful . Breakfast was adequate as was hotel restaurant. It is in a quiet neighbourhood. Two points worth noting though are 1. The hotel is difficult to find . The taxi...More
We stayed at the hotel for two nights, the property is gorgeous, the Chinese architecture, beautiful courtyard with a Buddha statue and a landscaped garden is like a tourist site to visit. The check in was smooth, the staff courteous and the room comfortable. The...More
Loved this hotel! Large, beautiful and elegant room, good air conditioning, great water pressure in the shower and wonderful sitting area...the lobby area, too was wonderful to take a short break after a long day of walking (and eating!). It was quiet even though they...More

We also never heard about PSB. No one asked for our documents in China, except for hotels, trains and airplanes. There was no problem with this at all.
P.S. maybe travel company has some information about it.

The Buddha Zen and the Wenshu Monastery are very close to each other and the whole area is lovely for exploring by foot. The Wenshu temple is free. The vegetarian restaurant next to the monastery is very good, but go to the upstairs part (on the first floor) not the self serve downstairs. The area around the restaurant has tea and coffee houses, music and a weekend market.
The Wuhou Temple, Jinli Street and the Tibetan area are all really close to each to each other. Can't remember the entrance fee to Wuhou but you should be able to find it online. Remember to check for concessions as they can be generous to seniors, children etc. Jinli street is next door and very very very touristy. Tibetan area is further up the road from the Monastery - just carry on walking up the road with the Monastery on your right - you will start to see some Tibetan restaurants on the left hand side after about 5 minutes walking. Cross over and start exploring the long street diagonally on the left behind the restuarants. Entirely Tibetan, not touristy, full of monks. I don't think there were any metro stops near Wuhou - we walked for about a mile from the nearest one. Taxis were not very expensive. Reception at Buddha Zen can help with maps and info and call a taxi.
People's Park has a metro stop. Metro is very safe and easy to use, all the signs are in English. Your bags will be scanned on the way in and water bottles are checked separately. It's a great way to explore Chengdu.
We travelled by metro all over the town. The metro stop is about 5 minutes walk from Buddha Zen. Older people on the streets tend not to speak English but most of the teenagers do and can't wait to practice. They are really helpful if you get lost. In fact if you stop and get out a map, someone will also stop and try and help.
Hope you are going to see the pandas too!
Have a wonderful time, smile a lot and prepare to pose for photos with Chinese people as they are fascinated by us!

"Because of construction outside of the hotel, a courtyard facing room was quiet."
