“Vacation in China? Visit as a traveler and not as a tourist!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2013

We stayed at this, supposedly, four star hotel in Chengde for just one very scarey night...As foreigners, the hotel staff escorted us across an alley to a tourist annex. The doors were padlocked, there wasn't a living soul in the building! They took us up to as I recall to either the third or the fifth floor by flashlight and, with our electronic keycard, gave us light...then, left us in our room. I could hardly sleep a wink and was thrilled to see the light of day the next morning.

Our tour group booked into this hotel for our visit to Chengde. After reading the many 1- and 2-star reviews I was expecting the worst. But it was not as bad as that.

The room is a fair size and yes the lighting is dim. The bed was comfortable and clean, though the floor carpeting was worn and stained. The room and bathroom was "tired" looking, but at least the water was hot.

As for the breakfast, the style and taste is quite different from Beijing. It's not bad per se, just unusual. What I found cheesy was while the breakfast is ongoing the hotel staff is hawking paintings on the stage. Are they that desperate for tourist dollars?

We had a group of 16pax and we checkin Qianyang hotel for a nite stay on 5th march 2012. Before we checkin we had read the previous reviews on this hotel and they were all very negative comments and as such we were so worried! However to our surprise and relief, this hotel has all the neccesary utilities and is in good condition. The bath towels may look old but they are clean and so is the bathroom. There were no crawling insects or bugs as mentioned in previous reviews!!
The beds were comfortable enough and the bedsheets are clean, As for the breakfast the next morning they serve typical chinese breakfast with congee n vegetables and also toast bread, i suppose since this hotrel is located within the vincinity of the famous Mountain Summer Resort this is by far the best they can provide,
So for those planning to visit Chengde have peace of mind to stay in this hotel to enjoy the splendours of what Chengde can offer!

We stayed in the hotel for one night during our trip in Jan, we actually arrived there on New Year's eve. This was just a side trip for our tour in Beijing, we didn't have a choice because it is included in the tour package, I would give the hotel at best a two star, considering Chengde is not a big city.
When we arrived at the hotel in the evening, the lobby was ice cold, probably the same temperature as outside, around minus 6. I tried to get some warmth in the lobby on the main floor but it was more or less the same temperature. Not until we went into our rooms on the upper floor, the heat started to kick in.
The hotel overall does not meet any hygiene standard, even compare with other Chinese run hotels. The carpet has cigarette burn marks and I don't believe they even vacuum the carpet once a month, the corners are filthy and we didn't try to touch anything except just to sleep on the bed.
I am Chinese and have travel in China extensively, this is by far one of the worst hotels I ever stayed in. The breakfast was barely edible and I am not a picky eater, at the same time there is an auction going on for Chinese paintings, what a refreshing ??? experience early in the morning!!!
Another funny scene was on the assistant manager's chair right in the middle of the hotel lobby, a cat was sleeping peacefully, probably for most of the day (I'll upload the picture later). There was absolutely no service, when our tour group of 28 people arrived, a lady showed up and collected our passports and right away she disappeared somewhere. The only human in the hotel lobby was a lady with a table selling souvenirs, I believe she also disappeared after we checked in.
When I checked the ratings in Tripadvisor, interesting enough all the good ratings are from Chinese with one liners.

Room Tip: Just stay away from this hotel, I don't believe there is one good room

We were also here for 1 night as part of a tour group. The 4 star rating is a huge joke. The hotel only looks ok from the outside. The smoke stench in the lobby would drive most people back to the sub-zero temperature outside. The buffet breakfast is plainly inedible. The rooms are dark and mouldy with the wardrobe doors rotting and falling off.

Room Tip: Don't stay here if you have a choice.

Nothing much to add, most of the bad reviews are true. Felt like I was in some horror/murder flick hotel.

Room Tip: My tip is to find another hotel

This hotel is a filthy dump, rooms are dark, damp, mouldy and dismal. No service at all. Do not go near breakfast, food is just thrown out on trays and its a feeding frenzy. One of the worst places I have ever stayed. Not suitable for the young, old, children or anyone used to a reasonable level of comfort. Beds are hard, bathroom rattled all night, carpets are filthy. Lots of tour groups using it as the people have had no choice in booking this dump.Only suitable for back packers on tight budget. Would rate this hotel a 1 star only, but some tour groups have sold it as 4 STAR????????????????? CHANCERS.
