Civil Aviation Hotel
Ranked #728 of 2,747 Hotels in Chengdu
Reviewed 9 November 2014

This was a lovely room with excellent, free wifi. Good beds, a nice bathroom, very good tea making in the room with - as to be expected in a city with such a great tea culture - excellent tea. There was a fridge in the room.

The hotel laundry service was handled by a third party company and was not too expensive, and the regular service was same-day.

There are adequate dumpling and noodle shops nearby for breakfast and the hotel is not too far from the nearest metro station, Chunxi Road. The Chengdu Metro is small but growing and it has English signs and English options on the ticket machines.

The hotel is close to the main shopping area for downtown, with shops ranging from Prada to bargain basements.

The staff spoke very little English but that wasn't a problem. Checking in was as smooth as could be; checking out was a bit of a disaster: we were behind a woman who was taking up a lot of time and the staff member was in no hurry to get to us. After 20 minutes we just handed in our key and walked - we had a train to catch.

Warning: do not rely on mobile broadband for maps etc - in Chengdu it is unreliable. Because we had not saved the relevant Google Map before arriving it took us a long time to find the hotel.

Room Tip: We chose a double room and got a lovely, big bed.

This is a modest, clean and good value for money in hotel in Central Chengdu.
Good access to all manner of high end retail and a vast amount of general shopping.
Close to taxi rank and smaller restaurants. Will be rebooking for a visit in Sept. 2014.

Room Tip: Check the room for any evidence of lingering smokers!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is comfortable. The beds are reasonably comfortable for "Westerners" to sleep in. The breakfast was adequate. It is very centrally situated and within easy walking diatance from the many shopping malls and restaurants. The area seems reasonably safe as we went for a walk on both nights that we spent there.

Good things first:
- cheap considering the location
- room is large,
- bed and pillows are comfy,
- free wifi in the room,
- breakfast is fine,
- very good location in Chengdu (walking zone with all the shops, restaurants etc. ...) so it is convenient to walk around and only it takes a 10 minutes walk to the subway
- friendly staff despite very poor English but at least they tried

Then comes the improvement points:
- room smelt strongly cigarettes and bathroom smelt sewer so we asked to change room. Next one was less smelly but still quite strong (was on our clothes next morning) and the bathroom still smelt badly sewer. View was ok but the window did not close properly, and since Chinese honk quite often, we diminished the noise by blocking our luggage in front of the window. Thankfully it was not winter time despite already cool.

Overall I would recommend for one or two nights because of the great location and the reasonable price.

I love this hotel so much and I very much like to come back on my next visit. The location of the hotel is right at the city center. Restaurants and shopping complex are within walking distant and it's very safe to walk around at night around the areas too. The hotel rate is very reasonable and most importantly the services are excellent and staffs are friendly with smiles. Rooms are alright and cleaned.

Room Tip: Rooms are mostly quiet at night as the hotel is away from the main traffic. Air condition and TV are...
