Location near shopping streets
The West Wing is situated in ShuWa North, 2nd Street. Distance to the Main Building is 300m. ShuWa Street North is a side road from the busy thoroughfare Zongfu Road. Around the hotel are several small grocerie shops with cold drinks and food. Nearby is main shopping street Chunxi Road (500m).
The breakfast room is simple and located on the ground floor. The Chinese food is in buffet style and very reasonable with vegetables, meat and rice. There is also a cook in the breakfast room who makes noodles and eggs. Besides Chinese food, there are tosti’s, some cakes and (pretty bad) coffee. Tourists who look for a decent Western breakfast will find little choice in the West Building.
In the Sichuan Hotel West Building we booked the Deluxe Double Room for 398 Yuan. This was a nice and clean room with a soft doublebed, glass work desk, lazy chair, lcd television and coffee/tea facilities. The free wired internet connection was reliable during our 6 nights stay. Two bottles of mineral water were included in the room price every night.
