Oakwood Residence Funder Chengdu
Ranked #43 of 2,748 Hotels in Chengdu
Reviewed May 2, 2014

This was my second stay at the hotel, as the first time I found the staff efficient, pleasant, and with a level of English that made communication easy. The rooms are spacious and modern, public areas clean and pleasant. The 7-11 around the corner is small but can be used to stock the full size refrigerator/freezer in the room (there are also all the basic kitchen electrical appliances), and the subway station (Tongzilin station on Line 1) is a few hundred meters away. The free wifi in all areas is surprisingly fast and stable.
Breakfast in China is my main meal of the day, and the Oakwood buffet is more than adequate. The staff do not advertise the fact that one can also order eggs made to order, and the service is not fast, but the food is fresh and good.
Once again I found the gym and pool well kept up, but the 6:30AM opening time is too late for my needs.
When travelling to the hotel make sure you have the address written in Chinese characters (e.g. from the web site), as English speaking taxi drivers are rare, if any in fact exist.

Stayed there for some months, I have to recognize that it was not my ideal place but compared to others it was the best choice for a combination of service, neighborhood, surroundings, easy access and convenience. Close to the subway, quite well maintained, full of shops around, banks, restaurants, supermarkets, malls, different types of stores, green areas. Staff is very polite and actually the one in the restaurant were really welcoming. Previous management was very responsive and proactive, not sure how is it going now (not that good judging by some reviews). Breakfast as in many other long stay aparthotels is biased towards chinese/asian food (nothing wrong with that, just that I would prefer more western type), having said that you can always order eggs whatever style you want. I didn't like the fact that for my likes the rooms were quite dark, I like bright places. All in all no complaints, it is right in frontof the Tongzilin area where lot of expats live, so you have plenty of choices and services across the other side of the subway. Has a nice gym but I stopped going since they turned off the a/c and I was not able to exercise with the air coming out of a vent (dusty).

Room Tip: Apparently the rooms on the top floors are better and bigger.

Location is great near the subway station, facilities ok, breakfast average. Main problem for me, they do not differentiate between smoking and non-smoking floors. Hence the room smell of smoke as long as someone on your floor is lighting up a cigarette. Furthermore, windows are sealed, can't even ventilate within the apartment. This is especially bad for people with allergies. Although they claim to have a air purifying and circulation system, it does not seem to have any effect. Probably bearable for short term stay, but definitely not recommended for long term stay with kids.

The hotel was recommended by frequent travelers who spend long periods of time in Chengdu, and the Oakwood seems the right place for those trips: Service in good (but could be faster), hotel is clean and well kept. Breakfast is OK, dinner is simple but good quality western food.
The hotels location requires subway travle to local attractions and shopping markets, but the subway station is a short walk away. Behind the hotel is a 7-11, good for stocking the refrigerator in the room (coffee & tea are replenished daily).
Unfortunately the fitness center only opens at 6:30AM, this is not early enough for business travelers on tight schedules. The pool and fitness machines are new and good.

The apartments are so quiet inside even with the noisy streets outside. Perfect night's sleep! The area is quite residential, with private apartment blocks just next door. Theres a convenient 7/11 round the corner and the bakery next to the entrance has wonderful pastries for breakfast or tea. Round the back are restaurants and across the street, is a great massage place called Changle. Its is very clean and professional - try the one where they step on your back!. Service is pleasant and efficient at Oakwood and the people are very good.

Room Tip: All are pretty quiet cos they have good double glazed windows

My Husband stayed in this service apartment for 5 weeks due to work. I flew over to join him on his last couple of days we stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. It was clean, looks very new and the size is very generous. Our kitchen was full of utensils and was cleaned everyday. We had a hugh tv in both the living area and our bedroom.

The service is spot on, even though there is a language barrier they still try the best to accommodate you and help you find your way to where ever you want to go!

The swimming pool is very clean, they will not let you in unless you have a swimming cap on! They have a change room with lockers that requires an electronic bracelet to open - free of course. The showers in the change room is also kept very clean. They also have a sauna in the change room. I didn't get to go to the gym but it is right next to the swimming pool with a glass wall separating the two.

Breakfast is reasonable, they have their typical asian breakfast which includes congee, noodles, chinese donuts, pork buns etc as well as catering for westerners they also have the American hot breakfast and cereal.

Location of the hotel is near the wangfujing shopping centre. The centre is well worth a visit, it is big with all different kinds of shopping stores from clothes, restaurants and even a supermarket downstairs.

I would definitely be staying here if i was to visit Chengdu again.

I stayed in Oakwood for 1 night. Hotel itself looks great, brand new. I got a room upgrade and ended up in this 150 square meter apartment with kitchen, washing machine, huge TV, etc.

While huge, the apartment was very cold. The air conditioning made a lot of noise and provided no improvement so I hd a pretty poor sleep.

One more issue to with mentioning, I arrived rather late, after 10pm and the hotel had no open bar. No bar in the room either.


All in all I have seen better in Chengdu, but for the price here Oakwood is a good choice. But not in winter time.

Stayed: January 2013, traveled on business
