We stayed at the hotel for two nights on our trip around China. The hotels location is outside of the city centre around 15 minutes in a taxi. The hotel is at the exhibition centre and there is no a lot around it although having been to the city centre there is not a lot there either. We had a standard double room booked and having checked in and got to the room we had been given a twin bedroom (two single beds). We contacted the front desk and spoke to three different people, after trying to explain in english the problem we were told that this was a standard double room!! We could not be bothered to try anymore so just put up with the room given to us. The room was fairly small in size and there was hardly any wardrobe space for clothes. There was not one drawer in the whole room!!!! The carpet looked quite dirty and had quite a few stains on it! The bathroom was again tiny and did not look particularly clean.
The staff at the hotel were fairly helpful but the language difference was a problem at times.
We did not eat at the hotel so I cannot comment on the restaurants here. The leaflets in the hotel seemed to imply that they were partners/linked in some way with the Intercontinental Hotel next door. We did eat at the Intercontinental Hotel next door at the Italian restaurant and this was outstanding, It was reasonably priced as well. To be honest if we ever returned to Chnagdu I think we would stay at the Intercintinental Hotel instead.
We got a taxi to the hotel from the airport and this cost us around £5 (46 Yuan). Back to the airport it cost us £6 (60 Yuan) due to the toll booth.
We got a taxi from the hotel to Giant Panda Breeding Centre which cost us around £8 (80 Yuan) and got the 902 sightseeing bus(if you can call it that) back to the city centre cost 20p each (2 Yuan). We then got a taxi back from the city centre to the hotel which cost around £4 (40 Yuan). To be honest may be worth getting a taxi back from the Panda Centre as we did not find much to do in the city centre.
