“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

After a quite difficult bus journey, this hotel was a blessed relief! The staff were very friendly (and had excellent English), the rooms were very good, and the beds easily the most comfortable we came across during our trip in China. The restaurant does a good buffet dinner, and the wait staff were a little confused when we ordered from the menu. The food we ordered was very good, and the buffet breakfast the next morning offered a good range of food - even for a VERY fussy ten year old boy. We didn't have a chance to use the pool or grounds during our stay, due to the weather, but were happy with the hotel overall. We'd definitely stay here again.

The room was beautifully decorated, with very comfortable beds, shower, bath and HBO Asia. The hotel might work on some of the details - cleanliness of the windows, cracks aound the bath tub - but overall, the room was lovely.

The swimming pool was disappointing compared to the photos that are on display.There was no water in the jacuzzi, the big pool was very cold and after seeing Chinese guests spitting into the water repeatedly, I didn't feel like swimming anymore.

The machines in the gym were either too small for us or broken.

The breakfast buffet was good. There was a big selection of Chinese dishes, but they also offered white bread, a toaster, fried eggs, cornflakes, yoghurt, milk and coffee. The ambiance was very nice and so was the staff.

The Korean Restaurant, also in the building, was a big disappointment. Our bill was 500 yuan for two people, but the food was too little and the salmon sashimi (158 yuan) wasn't fresh at all. I wouldn't recommend going there.

Finally, the staff at the front desk and the porters were lovely. The ladies recommended a good restaurant outside the hotel and the porters went out of their way to arrange taxis for us.

Overall, a very nice hotel, as long as you skip the pool, sports centre and Korean restaurant.

P.S. I am not sure if the staff can speak English, as I handled everything in Chinese.

Room Tip: There is noisy construction work going on next to the hotel. Ask for a room on the other side.

Decent hotel in Zigong, probably one of the best in fact, just a short walk to the centre of town and close to the lantern festival.
The decor of the hotel is nice with good standard rooms and a good buffet breakfast.
The grounds of the hotel are good, with a Tennis court and indoor swimming pool.

Local attractions, the Lantern festival was worth seeing and great for kids but I found the Dinosaur Museum a let down and not as big as I thought it was going to be.

Overall very good hotel with big clean rooms and very hepful staff. The chinese breakfast was really great and the western breakfast was OK. The hotel is located rather central in Zigong, but it's convenient to take a taxi to the very center.

Zigong is far off the normal tourist routes, so when I planned a visit to the Zigong Dinosaur Museum as part of a China trip i was a little concerned about booking this hotel. I needn't have worried!

The Tanmulin Celebrity City Hotel may well be the nicest Chinese hotel that I have stayed in while in China - and I travel extensively there. The hotel was beautiful and impeccable. The staff was attentive and very helpful. And the room was comfortable in all respects. I was pleasantly surprised!

The free morning buffet was quite extensive and even included desserts. We ate in the Chinese restaurant for dinner and were given a private room - with 4 attendants! Very nice.

If you are going to Zigong, don't hesitate to book this hotel.
