How best to visit China but to live it in this hotel. The setting is in ancient Cheng Du, central to village restaurants, shops and tea houses. Internal architecture modern with ancient Chinese settings, with all modern facilities. Modern toilets, beds and Internet. The inner garden, zen like and clearly in period. You have a choice for breakfast in both... More

We stayed here three times in all whilst wandering around China. It is set in an old part of town around the Wenshou Temple which has not been turned into a touristy shopping street like the area around the Wuhou temple. This area is largely visited by Chinese tourists but not huge crowds or tour groups so although there are... More

Thought of just stringing together superlatives and letting you pick the one you liked most because I can tell you it would fit. But, and this is important, your style and taste in hotels must lean away from the typical luxury or upscale chain. This hotel is for those of us who love to find a special place that can... More

Nice hotel and a change from westernized standard establishments, we really enjoyed our stay in the "old town" - quiet and clean. Dining note: We are not "vegetarian" as such but the Wenshu Temple Vegetarian Restaurant nearby (which oddly TA keeps insisting is closed - believe me it isn't!) is a nice change from standard fare - especially if you...

We stayed 4 nights at the BuddhaZen Hotel and our room was on the 3rd floor with a balcony facing the shops of "old town". We were checked in easily by English speaking front desk and were helped with our luggage to our room as there aren't elevators. On our way to our room, we saw the decor and gardens... More

We were touring China with our son, who lives there. We stayed in a number of hotels but BuddhaZen was a unique experience. Built in Buddhist style round a central courtyard, it was comfortable, stylish and calm. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the rooms spacious and clean. Loved the individual porcelain washbasins! We would certainly stay again... More

This hotel is located about an hour's worth of traffic from the Chengdu airport. Less during off-hours. It is well situated in an oasis of calm in Chengdu. It is surrounded by small traditional shops with traditional architecture. This hotel itself is quintessentially Chinese on the outside with well decorated Chinese modern rooms. The staff are very helpful. The restaurant... More

We spent two nights in this hotel. It is located in the old town which is very attractive with lots of nice little shops, tea rooms etc. The map the hotel gives you is out of date showing only two metro lines whereas there are four and it is not at all to scale so it is better to go... More

With the majority of city hotels in China you could be almost anywhere in the world, Not this hotel, you definitely know where you are. The breakfast was fairly limited but we were given a very good breakfast to take away for an early flight. Located in a touristy area which is very quiet at night that meant we were... More

What a lovely boutique hotel built in historic style. The bath rooms were very modern and the rooms of ample size. We had a balcony that overlooked the pedestrian walkway below. The front desk staff was friendly with adequate English. (they actually kept our suitcases overnight while we made an excursion to Mt. Emei) The hotel is located in the... More
