This hotel is in downtown Chengdu, very close to the action. Short walk to markets, Peoples Park and the big square. The hotel has plenty of 'old world' charm but is looking a bit tired. The bathroom was booged up with loads of sealant and the ceiling was mouldy and water damaged. Place needs a refurbishment to lift standard. On the whole though it was quite clean and well serviced. Downstairs dining room provided adequate breakfast. Stayed in the South Wing and never did find the other wing (where the currency exchange was). Post Office across the street was very handy, although you may need some assistance from a local guide getting served. The men's gaming club (turn left and go down about 10 doors) is worth a look, especially on a weekend. Further on is the land of mobile phone shots.
If you're stuck for a fun activity, find the People's Park and have your ears cleaned by a scary man using a long, sharp probe! The be sure to get a toffee drawn on a stick and watch the men painting the Chinese characters in water on the paving stones.
