Garden City Hotel Chengdu
Location in the heart of the city
The Garden City is located in the centre of Chengdu. Nearby are the luxury Fraser Suites apartments and Tianfu Square with the Mao statue. The Pizzahut and McDonalds are on the other side of the street. The shopping streets starts next to the hotel. To the pedestrian zone of Chunxi Road is a 5-10 minute walk. Next to Garden City Hotel is the entrance of Carrefour. This is a large French supermarket. Starbucks and KFC are around the corner (100/200m).
A standard room with shower and breakfast was 330 Yuan in october 2013. Special deals were 310 Yuan for a suite. However we didn’t book this deal. In 2007 and 2009 we liked our stay in Garden City Hotel very much. In 2013 we only booked one night. We liked the extensive Chinese buffet breakfast in 2007/2009. In 2013 the breakfast was disappointing. The hotel rooms were outdated with large stains on the carpet. The walls were dirty. The reception looked like a bunch of scholars. They they behaved unprofessional and spoke little English. We stayed therefore our other nights in Chengdu in the Sichuan Hotel West Building and Youke Hotel.
In the past Garden City Hotel had an airport service in one of their comfortable cars/jeeps. I am unsure if this service still exist. At the entrance was allways a doorman but he has disappeared. Opposite the reception is a lounge where you can drink coffee.
