“Comfortable hotel just out of the centre of Chengdu”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We only stayed in this hotel for one night, but our impressions were good. The room was on the smaller side but very comfortable with good beds, excellent double glazing and a clean, good sized bathroom. The reception staff were helpful and spoke reasonable English. The breakfast was very good with a wide range of both Western and Chinese style food. There is free Wi-fi in the lobby, where there is also a well priced bar. The hotel is a taxi ride from the centre of the city which didn't matter for us but might be inconvenient if you're staying longer.

Unfortunately we arrived very late at night after a long wait at Guilin Airport. We were transported to a feast of coloured lights resembling Blackpool front as we left Chengdu Airport.The Hotel staff were very helpful as the Chinese baggage handlers had tampered with our bags leaving us unable to get into our bag when all we wanted to do was retire to bed they were very helpful. This hotel had a wonderful King size bed and a very unusual modern bathroom with a glass wall and a curtain to preserve your modesty. We only stayed for one night and regret not being able to explore the hotel facilites apart from the wonderful hot buffet breakfast with lots of choices before being rushed off to see the Giant Panda Breeding Research Centre.All in all a pleasure to recommend.

This is a comfortable, clean and well run hotel. We arrived very late and the staff were helpful and efficient. Excellent Wi-Fi in the lobby - best we experienced in China, and complimentary. The rooms were pleasant, everything worked well and the beds were the most comfortable we slept in on our trip. Sadly we were only there for one night because it was one of the better hotels. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and a nice atmosphere.

We stayed for two separate nights (visiting Mt. Emei in between). The construction work reported in earlier reviews was virtually finished with no impact on our stay. The lobby and restaurant areas were very smart. The room was a reasonable size, very clean and comfortable with a king-size bed.
The location was average. We arrived early evening and had trouble finding somewhere to eat. After wandering down a long road inundated with mobile phone shops we eventually returned to the hotel for the buffet. Big mistake. There was a limited choice of predominantly Chinese food and limited to zero amounts of food available - e.g. 2 olives, no sushi. The service was appalling - limited to little more than telling us to eat up quickly. Breakfast however was much better.

I stayed here as part of a Virgin Holidays tour when I was visiting the panda sanctuary. We arrived from the rear entrance and initial poor impressions were soon dropped when we arrived in the lobby. It's a fairly slick hotel, well presented and sort of a cross between the Holiday Inn in Beijing and Marriott in Shanghai previously visited. The rooms are very well done, clean and business-like. We had only 1 night in Chengdu and many of us weren't feeling great from tiredness so the hotel was really appreciated. The dinner area and bar are well done. Breakfast buffet was of good quality.

Tianfu Sunshine Hotel served as our base for our 2-night stay in Chengdu to visit the Giant Panda Breeding Center. Selection and booking of the hotel was handled by our tour company.

Location: Seemed good. Didn't have to deal with transportation since this was handled by our tour company. Some shopping and restaurants within walking distance.

Room: Lighting was very dim. Hated the shower: low pressure, difficult to control temperature, shower head is at my eye level (I'm 5'10"). Our sink drain had a small leak that dripped onto the floor, so we had to keep the wastebasket underneath to keep our feet from getting splashed. Wired but not wireless internet is included in the room. Wireless internet is free in the lobby.

Restaurant: Normally we avoid hotel restaurants for dinner, but we were tired and ate there our first night and found our noodle dish to be surprisingly good. They wouldn't let us charge the meal to our room, so we had to pay cash. Western breakfast buffet options were pretty good, with eggs made to order.

Our rooms were fine, the breakfast was fine. Hotel arranged to have all of our luggage taken to the airport. Nothing that really sticks out in my mind. Liked that there was wifi in the lobby. Wasn't able to cash travelers cheques at the hotel, which was a bummer. Location for going to the Panda research center was perfect!
