“Good hotel with excellent staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2009

I was very pleased with this choice of hotel. The reception staff spoke good English and booked us in efficiently.

The bedrooms were well furnished and the beds were really comfortable. It was all spotless. The air conditioning was a little noisy but worked well.
We turned up relatively late to the hotel restaurant, when they had obviously been about to close. We were made to feel so welcome and they couldn’t do enough for us. I think they were quite intrigued by English people and wanted to know what we thought about the spicy food – which we loved although some of it was SO hot!

The breakfast buffet was very good with plenty of choice for all pallets.

We only stayed at this hotel for one night but I liked it and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.

This is a very clean, well-appointed hotel. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were soft and inviting. The air-conditioning only works when you have your room key card in the door slot. Same with the lights in the room. If you don’t have a bell person take you to your room, you won’t know this. The wall hangings and furnishings are very understated and attractive. There was a nice selection on the cable but I didn’t spend time watching it. I think there was HBO. Internet was free. There is a fitness center and pool but I didn’t use either nor did I take a look at them. By the way, the AC can be a little weak so if you can try to get two room cards so you can leave the AC on during the day and come back to a cooler room. This hotel is in a good location for walking to some different restaurants and see the local people. The front desk people were always very sweet and helpful and spoke pretty good English, if that matters to you.

The breakfast was amazing. It was better than some Sunday Brunches in the US. There were plenty of continental fare but loads of local foods, so it was fun to have soup, grilled lotus root, and meat buns before setting off for the day.

stayed for 3 nights, most comfortable bed I have had in china (mattress wasn't rock hard), rooms a little small if you need to add extra bed, excellent service from staff with adequate english, buffet breakfast had a good selection of chinese and western food. a little out of town but only a RMB7 taxi ride to main shopping centre. would choose again if travelling to chengdu. good value for money.

Tienfu Sunshine, the new name of the former Amara Hotel, is about 10 minutes walk from two major shopping areas. Coming by taxi, it is a little hard to find however. Overall, we rate Tienfu Sunshine a very good choice, for travellers looking for a fairly new, centrally-located and well-managed four-star hotel. The breakfast buffet is most satisfactory, offering a good selection of Western as well as Eastern items.
