Stayed in this hotel for 3 weeks on a business trip. The hotel really is a five star (in my experience anyway). I was a little bit apprehensive about going to China, probably due to the language issues more than anything else. I'd read some reviews about the staff at this hotel not being able to speak English. Well that is not true at all. Almost all the staff I encountered and met could speak or at least make an attempt to speak English. If they couldn't understand there was always someone nearby who could help.
The location for me was ideal as the Technology area was just a 5 minute taxi ride. The Panda Research base is around 1 hour away and roughly costs 150-200RMB. Chengdui downtown is around the same maybe slightly cheaper..
I'd especially like to personally thank Mr Beluha, who was a great assistance to me during my stay in terms of letting me know things about the hotel and also the surroundinmg area.
The rooms are very nice and tidy. I had a junior suite which was more than spacious enough and always clean. Turn down service happened most nights I was out. Not really a problem for me if it wasnt't but nice touch. There is always a good supply of bottled drinking water too. Only complaint about the room was the noise from the corridor could sometimes be quite load. This was generally caused by 'coach parties' of Chinese tourists who thought it ok to shout at each other along the corridor. Maybe a cultural thing but might be worth putting up some notice at check-in to keep noise down during certain hours.
I spent most of my time eating in the Western Restaurant. The food was good. I didnt choose the buffet so cannot comment but it looked good. I visited the chinese restaurant once and it was good also. Unfortunately I didnt experience the Japanese restaurant but if I return again I certainly will.
I also used the pool and gym facilities which were fine. I'm sure the picture of the gym is different on the website(!) but it does the job. Didnt use the spa facilities but they looked good.
All in all, I had a very pleasurable experience staying in this hotel and would definately stay again. Keep up the good work!
