Right in the middle of Chengdu where all the action is. The hotel staff and i remained pretty much lost in translation but everything other than that was superb. The managerial staff helped me a great deal with everything and the place became my home in china away from home. Spent over a month there with a few days stint...

We didn't expect a 5-star, but we did get a very nice room and good location in Chengdu. We spent three nights in June with no complaints what so ever. Service was excellent. Breakfast was adequate and varied.

I have found IHG hotels to be reliable in China. This HI Express offers good value for money. Room is clean and quite spacious. Hotel offers DIY laundry service. Breakfast is pretty good given the price. Only thing is restaurants offer limited selection of food for lunch and dinner. If you stay here, you need to walk for 10-15 minutes...

Decent hotel, although we had to book 2 rooms to fit our family of 4 in so put the price up a tad. Nice size room with comfy bed and a nice bathroom. Tried to communicate with hotel to arrange adjoining rooms, etc but to no avail. Generally happy with the service otherwise.
