Had dinner at Chao with friends, the hotel's decoration is very nice and special, different from other hotel's I've been to. People in the front desk were friendly, thanks to Grace and Eddy, they were patient with us. Great food too

What a great rooms experience! I loved the space and the amenities provided in the rooms. Details were well thought out, and the desk was comfortable for work. Breakfast and dining options were also phenomenal. The only annoyance was that it was always difficult for the taxi drivers to find the hotel - that's something that will probably change though...

Chao has very nice modern looking yet elegant room. They are ample and plenty of features. Staff is very helpful and with good attitude. Great breakfast and good restaurant and bar for a drink. It is 2 minutes walking from the core of Sanlitum and 5 minutes ride from many business areas

Stayed for 4 nights in a suite. Totally adored our experience from beginning to end. The room was very clean and made up everyday without promoting. Great in-room products. Too cold for the pool but it would be an ideal place to hang in summer. Ate breakfast in the hotel everyday and it was mind-blowing. An Incredible amount of food....

The Chao is a new and very comfortable hotel in trendy Sanlitun; we were upgraded to a very nice room with freestanding bath, shower, tea and coffee-making facilities. Great views across the neighbourhood and good breakfasts. Where the hotel came into its own was when I was robbed of my credit and debit cards when my bag was slashed on...

Dear Client, Thank you for your positive rating and review. We keep encouraging taxi drivers to get know our address beside being featured on the GPS, in the case they don't and as you rightly suggested, the best way is to refer to Soho Sanlitun that is the nearest landmark.
