Beautiful Building at a fraction of price May 21, 2011
I found this guesthouse through the website search and then I go to check the place before book the room. Unfortunately all the room was fully booked at that time and I wasn't able to see it, and the looks of the guesthouse from outside is deceiving, especially from the receptionist office which is separate outside on the street.
However, after the staff show the place, I fell in love with the building structure, the garden, the tea house and the lovely smile of the staff which speak perfect english:)
The receptionist (Sunny) is really friendly and helpful and I also booked the Panda tour with her.
The room itself really large and bright, with tea/coffee making facility, air condition, television, and a mosquito repellent ready to plug in:) However, there is a musky smell inside the bathroom and the mattress is still too hard for my liking.
There is one large teahouse which is more pricey (but the place is really nice and inviting) and small tea house next to the building which is cheaper but no view at all.
The guesthouse location is really good, 1 block from Tianfu Square, 2 minutes walk to the food market, 5 minutes walk to the Renmin Park (People Park). Plenty of shops and restaurants nextdoor and the guesthouse has a massage service as well:)
The price per night is really cheap RMB130. I would definitely recommend this guesthouse to other traveler. It is so nice to be able to see and enjoy the garden and feel so peaceful.
