“Great location, small rooms”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

Our family stayed at the Yinhe Dynasty Hotel with a group of several other families visiting Chengdu. The rooms were quite small, but the beds were the most comfortable we have encountered in China. Though we didn't get to take advantage of it because of the brevity of our stay, the hotel is in a fabulous location -- right in the center of a great part of town for shopping and eating. The lobby was very well cared for and decorated. We happened to be there as their holiday decor was set up, we the full-size gingerbread house (real gingerbread) filled the entire lobby with a great scent. the kids loved it! The internet, though, was horrible. We were able to have a connection long enough to check email once. At all other times, there was essentially no connection so we were completely out of touch.

I must say this hotel is rather 'old' when I first check-in. Seems that this hotel has been around for ages!
The interior of the room deco was out dated! However the staff's hospitable service was commendable and pays attention to detail. Breakfast selection was quite extensive with Western, Chinese, local Sichuan and even extend to Japanese cuisine as well.
Apart from being strategically located to nearby shopping destination it has easy access to MRT station as well.

We stayed here Wednesday night for one night with our two preteen girls. This hotel was selected by our tour group. It was terrible. One of the worst experiences ever.

We had booked and triple confirmed non-smoking rooms that were adjoining. Upon check in, we were told the rooms were 4 doors apart. Best they had we were told as they are sold out. English was barely spoken so our guide translated.

Went up to the rooms and the girls twin room was heavily smoked in. We refused the room. Front desk offered another room 10 doors away on another wing. Too far for young kids.. We refused.

More discussions led to a miraculous two rooms that were adjacent. Where were these before? Unfortunately, one of the new rooms was like a smokers lounge. Hotel offered to remove ash trays to resolve. We refused.

Finally, one hour later we had two non smoking rooms that were 3 doors apart. We were out of options. Was on a smoking floor so this was not fun.

Breakfast was lukewarm with more heavy smokers. Milk was warm and juices from a powdered mix. Food was not appetizing.

A terrible experience at a poorly run heavy smoking hotel.

Very worn out, terrible
The carpets in the whole hotel was very dirty.
It was so bad even in the restaurant that I did not eat breakfast. I lost my appetite when the waiters stood on their knees scraping food from the carpets.
I suppose the staff was polite and nice, but the quality of the hotel was very poor.
It was an agency who choose the hotel for us, but I would never stay there again.

Rooms were clean and reasonably equipped. Breakfasts were good (both Chinese and western style) and the menu changed daily. Pool was clean, but remember to bring your swim cap.
Location was good - close to non-touristy shopping, and easy access to transportation and local attractions.

The decor in the Yinhe Dynasty was a little dated but that didn't detract from our stay. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean. We had a king size and a twin room which was probably a mistake. From what I could understand all the floors had standard room layouts so having a kingsize and a twin meant our two rooms were on different floors!

The food was nice and we had a good meal in the lounge where the staff were very accomodating. They even had a menu for Pizzas (although there was a long wait for these so we stuck with the Chinese food).

The location seemed central although to be honest as we were being ferried around by our tour operator, we didn't get a chance to look around.

The swimming pool was unfortunately shut - this wasn't the hotels fault - the swimming pool was outside and it was raining hard!

We loved our stay in China and travelled north to south from Beijing right down to Guilin. If you want to read more about our trip we decided to put it on the web at http://www.my-family-travel-to-china.com

My wife and stayed here just for one night but it was very good indeed. It occupies a central location in Chengdu and is close to the local "opera" which is really a local variety show not the opera that we know - very well worth a visit - which has the world famous face changing artisits performing. It has to be seen to be belived! Our room was a "delux" room and was a very good size. It has the benefit of a computer in the room with free internet. The beds are the usual Chinese "firm" but comfortable when you got used to them. The shower was very good, hot and powerful. For breakfast there was a very good choice and the staff throughout were very friendly and helpful. On the down side, the carpets throughout the hotel were "tired" as was the bathroom - new sealant was needed round the bath; there was a little black mould and the varnish was coming off the door inside due to the steam from the shower. However, please don't let this put you off. It really is a good hotel and you would have to go some way to find better. Finally, it has two restaurants, a Chinese and a western. We ate in the Chinese one and it was excellent. Go past the "different meats" (ducks' tongues, frog, pig's feet) and you will find some excellent dishes.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a view of the city at the front.
