My husband and I were in Chengdu on 18th October 2013 and stayed at the BuddhaZen. We had a transfer from the train station and when we arrived had to walk about 100 meters or so to the hotel as it is situated in a pedestrian only zone. When we saw the hotel we couldn't believe how beautiful it looked from the outside. It got better when we entered reception passed the guard/concierge at the front door. We were told that we had already been given an upgrade (WOW!) and were given a suite for our stay. The room we had was fabulous and the view looking down to the indoor garden was lovely. There are small parts of the hotel, mainly in the corridors that are dated and need sorting, such as paint jobs, but other than that it was amazing. It looks and feels more like a 4* than a 3*. Breakfast although was delicious, was a bit of a mess. There were not many single tables in the area where the food was, and some people had to sit elsewhere. There was a big round table that can sit about 12 people, so my husband and I ended up eating with the whole of Europe that morning. Every couple was from a different European country. The tables are not really laid out and the plates are in an awkward position not to mention difficult to find at first. Everything was a bit cramped and took so long. The toaster and coffee machine took an age and so racked up quite a queue. Breakfast was to be honest a bit of a disaster but the food was delicious. We ordered dinner from the restaurant to eat in our room and was delighted at the portion size and quality of the food. All in all we loved our stay at the BuddhaZen and we are planning on returning next year for a 10 day break at the hotel.
