“Dirty and Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We booked into this hotel for 3 nights so that we could enjoy 2 full days in the Jiuzhaigou Valley. We paid a price that was comparable to a 5-star Beijing hotel that we had stayed in just a few days before - for that price, this hotel was very disappointing! We were put into a room in Block 2, next to the main building. The room was dingy, the carpet was sticky, the bathroom was mouldy. I also had a Chinese wife (as another reviewer here) who did not dare to walk barefoot on the carpet and tiles! Although the room was spacious and the bathroom well-laid out, it was all looking very tired and in urgent need of renovation.

We tried a dinner at the hotel restaurant, but left very disappointed after complaining to the waitress about virtually every dish that we were served! The meals at the little street restaurants under Block 2 were much better value!

The hotel is about 4km from the Jiuzhaigou entrance, so we used taxis for transport.

Sorry to have to contradict the other reviews of this hotel but once again, "Oh dear!" My Chinese wife and myself arrived in the evening to be met with front of house staff who were dressed in dirty clothes and who we could smell from 2 metres away.
We signed in and were then guided out to our room in a building at the back of the main building. From the reception desk we were guided past the dining room and down a dank dimly lit passageway with peeling walls, into the garden, again with no lighting and into the accommodation block. The whole building smelled of dampness with the paint peeling from the walls, the room was simply dirty.

I went back to reception and explained that this was not acceptable and asked for the room to be changed. They then showed me an even dirtier room on the top floor of the same block. Having eplained that this too was not acceptable they then gave us a room in the main block. This room was much larger and a little, but not a lot, cleaner. Torn curtains, blinds that did not work, the oldest tv still working, a sofa so dirty my wife would not even sit on it and floors and carpets so dirty we would not take our shoes off. I know this place is out in the sticks but once again, this is one of China's prime tourist destinations and someone really should make sure that visitors to this beautiful part of the world are treated to better standards of accommodation. I can put up with some things but I refuse to accept that dirty hotel rooms and hotel staff are acceptable anywhere. I attach some photos of the bathroom to try and give readers some idea of the room condition.
There was an excellent small local restaurant just next to the hotel where we ate each evening. The food was superb, especially their own cured bacon which is some of the best I have ever had in my life.

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2010

Stayed in this hotel in the main building for 3 nights. Rooms quite big and spacious. Bathroom has separate washbasin, toilet and shower cubicle, plenty of hot water. Quaint shops and garden in hotel own enclosed compound. Very safe and quiet, away from other hotels. The hotel, shops and other buildings are all walled in a big area. Great for children to run around in garden and compound which is car free except for a golf-cart used to ferry guest to the rooms in exterior buildings behind the main building.
