We loved this hotel! It has the look and feel of 'old China' but the rooms are very modern and recently remodeled. Our room included a beautiful bathroom (albeit small), and a wonderful sitting/entertainment area. The large windows had shutters we could open to see the rustic market area below. It's very quite and located near a beautiful Buddhist temple.... More

The hotel is decorated as an ancient Buddhist monastery, the staff is courteous and attentive, however they speak a limited English and communication could be a problem at times. The room is a good size and we enjoyed the balcony a lot, the bathroom is good as well.There is no minibar/fridge in the room and the WIFI is free, but... More

First time I ever stayed in a Zen-themed hotel! Comfy beds, elegant bathrooms, excellent breakfast, but best of all - an unbeatable location in the old quarter of Chengdu, steps from the Wenshu Monastery and its beautiful "Garden of Fragrance" restaurant and tea garden. Drawbacks are common to many Chinese hotels: sewer smell in the bathroom sometimes, no elevator (but... More

The style of this hotel makes you feel as though you have stepped into the past whilst it retains the comfort of modern living. In the evening there was a young lady playing an ancient Chinese string instrument in the courtyard. The hotel is in an ancient Chinese style street surrounded by many shops. The only thing we weren't happy... More

We were only in Chengdu for one night, so we didn't get to experience the hotel any longer - but the property is lovely! The room we had was really a suite, with a living room and separate bedroom. It was huge. The hotel is updated and beautifully done, without being in the austere ultra-modern style that so many hotels... More

Stayed at BuddhaZen in late June for two nights. The hotel can be a little hard to find the first time as it is tucked away in the middle of a pedestrian market. - As stated in other reviews, the hotel is decorated as an ancient buddhist monastery; - No lift available but the hotel is only two floors -...

Property: The BuddhaZen Hotel is a spectacular property. It seems like you just stepped into ancient times at this hotel. The rooms are spacious and did I mention that the property is spectacular!!!!! Location: The property itself is a bit hard to find. There are many shops and vendors located around the property. There are not many restaurants in the... More

We had an excellent time at this hotel. Read the other reviews and you will see a consistent theme: this hotel rocks. It's not the fanciest hotel, it's not the biggest, it's not a luxury hotel, it's just a cool place to stay. Our room was massive compared to any room we had in Asia and it was funky. It... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and had the best service. Very friendly and helpful staff. Made suggestions to have laundry serviced, helped with making transportation to various sights. I was having wifi problems at 10:30pm & they sent a service person to help in under 10 minutes. The water pressure was awesome, towels great, nice robes, bed very comfortable and... More
