This hotel, not large, has amazing architecture, about three stories high, all dark wood and very Chinese. We had a suite, which got us on the first floor with two balconies overlooking the main walkway outside. This was full of stalls selling the normal tourist trinkets et cetera which gave it a real bohemian feel. Also there were real Buddhists... More

A bit too quirky for my liking in design, a plastic original. I come to Chengdu twice a year and I chose here because of the reviews and overall rating and the price is very reasonable but I honestly will not come back. The location is a nightmare for getting taxis and getting back to the hotel in the evening... More

I absolutely loved the gorgeous BuddhaZen Hotel - we stayed in other more 'highly rated' hotels during our visit to China but none of them matched the BuddhaZen- although I accept it would not be so ideal for people with kids or the less able-bodied. The hotel is situated in the old town and the building is in keeping with... More

I have been visiting this hotel for 3 times since 2012 I found it on internet by searching Zen Hotel. I like its location, just step out of the hotel, I can find nice restaurants, shops, easy to get cab, very much quiet compare to most hotels. In fact, I prefer the vegetarian food serves in the hotel restaurant. The... More

During our China trip, we stayed at several big name 5-star hotels but decided to try this hotel in Chengdu to cut costs. BuddhaZen was unlike any other hotel we've stayed in. The hotel is located in "Old Town" with a unique exterior resembling a temple. Because it is set within a courtyard filled with many stands selling local food,... More

I booked through agoda and paid in full Dec 3rd. Now March 21st, I get an email saying that Buddhazen will no longer accept my booking even though it was paid in full 4 months ago, and confirmed 3 weeks ago (for my visa). It was "rejected" because they now have their rooms booked and no longer need agoda's help... More

This is an amazing hotel for people who are looking for a little extra traditional flavor in Chengdu. It is also in a great location in the pedestrian only bazaar around the Wenshu Temple. Great food and shopping is just around the corner. Every part of this hotel is designed well, from the central courtyard to the simple classiness of... More

Located in a relatively quiet remodeled old town area next to Wenshuyuan Temple in Chengdu, BuddhaZen is arguably the best stop for tourists to Chengdu looking for something a little fancy and unique. The breakfast buffet is included with the price of the rooms (starting as low as about 80$) and the food is phenomenal. The rooms are clean, the... More

Hotel located at a square where there are local shops around . Staff at the reception were really helpful . We booked a superior suite room and it was nice with a separate sitting room . Only drawback is that it can be noisy as the room was facing the street . However as the night goes on and shops... More
