“Not in town center at all”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

I thought I had booked a hotel in the center of Chengdu, but Minglu is not! It is located in an area with big furniture malls. Not my idea of a central location! Every time you have to take a taxi or bus. The rooms in this chinese hotel are traditionally styled. I stayed at the top floor, which I found a bit smokey. The internet connection is very good. Breakfast is very very poor. No coffee, no toast, nothing. Just Chinese food. The staff does not speak English at all. They cannot provide a map of the city, so at first you don't have a clue where you are.
For this kind of accommodation the price is far too high!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2011

We stayed in this hotel for one night, with our 15 month old daughter.

We booked on the basis of great ratings from tripadvisor (although there were no reviews in English!). We booked through the hotel's own website (again, only in Chinese), with the help of google-translate: it was definitely worth it.

The room was lovely - traditional ming-dynasty style, with a very low bed, traditional furnishings, a rainforest-style shower and lots of incense.

The reception staff were exceptionally helpful, and we were particularly grateful to one receptionist who not only gave us directions to the nearest supermarket but even accompanied us there so that we wouldn't get lost. Her English was very good and she also very kindly gave us gifts of mooncakes, to celebrate the autumn festival.

One word of caution - the hotel doesn't accept foreign credit cards, which means paying for the room and the local 600 yuan deposit in cash - the nearest ATM doesn't take foreign cards but the receptionists will gladly point you in the direction (or accompany you) to one that does.

We would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
