The key advantage of this hotel is its location, against the summer palace, not far form the entrance. Its garden is absolutely nice, its architecture well in line with the local history. There are some "but" though... the rooms decoration is just simplistic, far below what we can expect from a 5 star. And the disaster comes at the breakfast...... More

Qiwanglou was formally part of the summer palace that was restored and opened as a hotel. The rooms, corridors and lobby are all permeating with history and culture of the Qing dynasty. The architecture was simply amazing and as we went during off peak season, we were upgraded to a room at level 2 instead of the semi basement unit... More

We arrived late. The entrance was slightly strange and they had no record of us coming to stay with them.However we were very fortunate to get a free upgrade to a suite. The room was superb in a modern style. It was very comfortable in all respects except there was no bath only a shower. We loved the traditional buildings... More

What a charming hotel this is. With pleasant gardens between the chinese style buildings. Just at the border of the entrance to the Summer Resort. The room was well equipped, but the design of the shower caused some flooding in the bathroom. Since we were staying in a semi basement room, the room was quite dark. But since one does... More

We arrived late in the day and had two rooms in what I believe is a newer building. The hotel seemed to be quite empty since it is the off season. We walked past some very beautiful traditional Chinese courtyard type hotel rooms to our building which was three stories high. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable but were... More

We stayed at this hotel Sept 19-21 and loved it. It was clean and lovely. The breakfasts were included and were good. The grounds were gorgeous, and we felt like we were staying in a temple. There was a traditional Chinese wedding while we were there which added to our experience. We could walk out the door to many good... More

This is a truly wonderful hotel if you really want to dive into the Chinese culture. It is a very traditional and absolutely beautiful and elegant hotel. The rooms are spacious and immaculately clean and the staff is friendly. The location is perfect to explore the imperial garden and palace (the Mountain Resort) as it is in walking distance of...

Other reviewers have got this close to right. It is, firstly, a distinctive convenient and elegant place to stay in Cheng De. It is immaculately clean and recently competed within an old palace inside the Imperial Mountain Resort with elegant gardens (although you have to go round to the main entrance to get into the resort overall. But it is... More

This hotel is set just behind the old wall of the mountain resort. The buildings are in old Qing mansion style. The rooms are quite good, the grounds are very nicely landscaped. There is lots of grass, it is very quiet and there are great views of the mountains. It is close to the entrance of the Mountain Resort, .... More

Chinese style breakfast, not much English spoken and OK-but-nothing-more-service. From this perspective, an average Chinese hotel. Still a very recommendable place though, as the buildings were part of the Imperial Mountain Resort or perfectly match in the architecture. All in all, the hotel itself has plenty of wonderful photo opportunities, which is definitely the main reason -and a very good... More
