Chengdu is a relaxed place to hang out, and the city holds some of our favorite places to stay in China. We hear all about hotel experiences from our guests every day, so here’s a list of the best hotels in Chengdu – keeping location, feedback, and foodies in mind!
Everything about this boutique hotel screams luxury and convenience, all while boasting one of the most traditionally beautiful grounds we’ve seen for a hotel anywhere. It’s just breathtaking. Meticulous interior design, paperless check-ins, a complimentary Maxi bar in every room (with coffee machines, tea service, and infusions,) curated artworks everywhere- every detail is thought out and executed wonderfully.
Built as part of Chengdu’s Tai-koo-li upscale and hip shopping and eating district in the heart of downtown Chengdu, the hotel also offers 3 authentic restaurants and a classic Chinese teahouse. Plus great views of the city can be seen from every room.
Rooms here are more like suites and full luxury apartments, starting at 63 square meters at 2000 RMB per night. They’re all decked out with some fantastic tech, and there are also apartments available for long-term stays. Visit their website for more information.
One of Chengdu’s newest properties, this boutique hotel offers a quiet and beautiful atmosphere situated in a former private residence. We love them because of the amazing atmosphere, fantastic massages, and great food. At CASA they make you feel at home, and the rooms are elegant and beautifully designed. Enjoy the best brunch in town prepared in their wood-fired kitchen, or relax in the rooftop sauna followed by one of their signature spa treatments.
Located in the Wuhou district, rooms here run roughly between 388 RMB and 1088 RMB, but you can even book out the entire CASA for less than 5000 RMB. Visit their website for more information.
Chengdu’s largest and flashiest luxury mall has four 50-floor towers, one of which is home to this “contemporary urban chic” 5-star Marco Polo hotel. For a hotel, this is as good as it gets. Superior service, impeccably located in the middle of Chengdu, and incredibly beautiful and comfortable rooms will round out an experience that can’t be anything but perfect.
Rooms here all have stellar views, and start at around 1200 RMB and get up to 3700 RMB. Discovery card holders are eligible for 10% discounts too. Visit their website for more information.
This mid-range option is one of the most popular places to stay for our guests in Chengdu. Located in a redeveloped traditional courtyard area near the Wenshu Monastery, the hotel has beautiful architecture and will leave you romanticizing about what life was like as an emperor in ancient times. Warmly furnished rooms have free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and tea and coffeemakers; some come with sitting areas. Suites add living rooms and/or ornate 4-poster beds. Room service is available, there’s a vegetarian restaurant on-site, as well as a decent spa. While its location is within a few minutes walk to the monastery, and one of our favorite noodle joints, it is a subway/taxi ride away from the downtown area. The closest subway station is a 2-minute walk away. It also means it’s a bit quieter than the bustling city center.
Rooms here start at around 500 RMB per night and get up to around 800 RMB for suites with traditional four-poster beds. Note that their website isn’t as 4-star as the rest of this place, but check it out for more information.
If you’re up for a self catered option, don’t forget to check out Airbnb. There are plenty of nice places up for grabs that will offer you a glance into what it’s really like living in Chengdu. Our recommendation is to stay near a subway station, and stay away from listings that are small local hostels offering private rooms.
