We stayed for 2 nights and are glad we booked this hotel. It is a beautifully restored Chinese building in a great location near the monastery and surrounded by market stalls. Both mornings we left before breakfast was due to start so the staff made us up some breakfast (we requested fruit) and got a huge selection in containers which... More

This is an unbelievably cosy, charming and quiet hotel in an old-style quarter of town. It is hard to find such excellent quality in China, even though the old-style may be a bit fake at times. Definitely to be recommended.

The hotel is really beautiful, especially the common areas. It is also blissfully located in a quiet pedestrian area which is great given the noise of Chengdu. It's right opposite the wonderful Wenshu monastery and its AMAZING vegetarian restaurant (素宴厅, which TripAdvisor annoyingly believes to be closed). Our room was large and comfortable but nowhere near as well designed as... More

Our group of four was very pleased with our stay. Rooms and bathrooms were of a good standard and tastefully finished. The airconditioning worked and the bed was comfortable. Upon checking in I was a little worried that I looked onto the street 2 floors below but the nights were quiet as the vendors packed up before dinner time. Guests... More

The Hotel excels by very friendly staff and and interesting architecture. Styling is in principle Zen, but the execution could be better. Same is true also for the rooms, the "restaurant" and the so-called Spa. It does not really meet the 4star standard westerners would expect. Unlike many other places in China it is very clean! The location is a... More

This place was great! They really try to merge a Buddhist retreat with a luxury hotel, and succeed! The atmosphere of the place was great, with a large courtyard, a wonderful spa, a large Buddha statute surrounded by soothing music during the day. The feel of the hotel was very peaceful and relaxing. The breakfast was good, a few Western... More

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
