We had two nights in this hotel - our visit to Chengdu was mainly focused on seeing the giant pandas in the conservation centre. When we arrived, our car had to drop us on the road and we then wheeled our suitcases on the pedestrianised area to the hotel. The outside of the hotel certainly has the "wow!" factor. It...

We so looked forward to our two days in Chengdu and at the boutique Buddha Zen hotel. Unfortunately we were sadly disappointed. Like the review just before ours, we arrived and were put in a room five feet from the noisy construction. When we asked to have our room changed, we were put around the corner, where unfortunately, the construction...

We stayed in several large chain hotels in China before arriving in Chengdu- so were happy to stay at a hotel that had more of a local feel. Our room was very large and comfortable (with the first efficient A.C. we had had- including at 5* hotels!)- the bathroom a bit small but well layed out. Breakfast was not to...

Weekend spent at the Buddha Zen with visiting family. It is in an interesting area - close to the Wenshu Monastery. Once we figured out how to get to the hotel - there are a good number of signs- it was easy to pick up and get dropped off by taxi outside the monastery. Rooms good, nice bedding, comfortable beds,...

We stayed at BuddhaZen after spending 10 days traveling through rural Western Sichuan. This was a welcome and luxurious respite from the spartan conditions of rural Chinese hotels. The neighborhood was not that active and afflicted by the Sichuan plague of bad beer and no coffee. The hotel is walking distance to the nearest metro station, which is just 2...

Old style, authentic Chinese hotel, locates right next to Wenshu Monastery, and old town Chengdu. There're lots of local food stands/restaurants near by. The hotel itself is right in the middle of Chengdu's old neighborhood, very pretty and authentic looking. We stayed in Chengdu for a week, and chose to stay in BuddhaZen for three nights, just so that we...

Chose this hotel due to its location. There used to be many shops and eating places in close proximity, but the area has now been closed off for renovation and shows no sign of anything being done. There isn't a lift in this hotel, so people with mobility restrictions should give it a miss. Our room had a small balcony...

This hotel really is stunning - the building and those in the surrounding area are unlike many residential areas in the city. However, due to construction near the hotel, our taxi driver from the airport had real problems finding it late at night. It's necessary to walk a few minutes from the main road to the hotel but it's very...

This is exactly the type of hotel we normally love, quirky, authentic, but within easy reach of the city and restaurants, etc. Yet, we failed to see how it could be considered anything other than an average place. Yes it was quirky and authentic but lacked the friendly atmosphere some of the other hotels we stayed in during our trip....
