I must say I was fairly disappointed when we arrived at Sam's guesthouse. I can't understand all the good reviews that this place received. The staff did speak really good english, and there was always someone available. That's about all the positive points to mention. They are located in a "shop" and the rooms they rent out are actually in...

My daughter and I stayed at Sam's Guesthouse for 3 nights at the end of April 2013. We loved the kind staff who spoke some English and arranged for us to see the Pandas. We loved coming back to the hotel each day and sitting in the covered terrace overlooking into the garden. Our room was a bit dark and...

Arrival is disconcerting because you check in via what feels like a backpacker's hostel desk (separate to the main hotel), But the staff are charming, ultra-helpful and speak good English. Chengdu appears to have VERY few buildings that are older than 20 years old and I doubt there are any hotels with charm. This one is a 300 year old...

Almost every time I have had to stay in Chengdu, accommodation was booked for me @ Sam's Guest House. I have stayed in at least 5 different rooms there on different occasions. The linen on the beds was clean and a duvet provided. Could have done with an extra pillow, but that's me. Towel, soap, shampoo and even toothbrush provided...

When I travel, I want the true local experience but with the benefits of a high level of cleanliness, comfort, safety, courtesy, and local knowledge. If I don't speak the language I want the hostel staff to be able to speak mine to a degree that we both understand each other. I have stayed at Sam's Guesthouse now about 8...

The location of the hotel is central. Do not expect luxury in the rooms. They are just average, but the price you pay is good. It is a little complicated. The reception is in a "shop" (travel agency) on the main road, the room keys are taken from a nearby hotel and the rooms are located somewhere else. Regardless, the...

If you need anything, they will help you and give you good advice. They can book plane or train tickets. The train ticket station is also very close by. China post is 3 min walk. and the staff will call for you to find places and will bring you to it. Soooo helpful!! They also mail your letters for you....

Although the rooms are a little tired, the staff are great. The rooms were clean with good wifi. Organised a couple of tours through them and Mr Soo is a great driver who picked us up from the airport at midnight! Would definitely stay there again.

From what I understand, the "hostel" is just an office that has everything a normal hostel has (young, friendly, English speaking staff; organized trips; etc), but we were actually staying at the hotel next door. The rooms were spacious but had a bit of an odor and didn't feel very clean. On the plus side, the WiFi signal was strong...
