Wen Han Hotel Chengdu Reviews
Very Chinese hotel Jul 12, 2010
Before my trip I was wondering why I couldn't find a decent on-line review of the Wenhan hotel. The answer is rather easy: the Wen Han is a very Chinese hotel, focussing on Chinese guests. This is obvious in the total lack of English skills of the reception staff as well as the solely Chinese breakfast.
I staid 2 nights at the Wenhan as part of an inclusive tour. The hotel is located at the busy ring road in the Southwest of the city. Surprisingly enough the rooms are soundproof and there is no bother from the heavy traffic outside.
It's about 2 km walk via the Tibetan quarter to Jingli Antique Street and the Wuhou temple. However the very center with Chunxi shopping street and Tianfu Square are a good hour's walk away- so better get a taxi.
My room was spacious and clean with 2 twin beds (mind the really HARD matresses!)and all necessary amenities including a kettle and tea/coffee making facilities.
The well equiped bathroom boasted a wide range of toiletries and commodities (toothbrush, comb etc...)
There is individually controlled A/C in the room but it never really cools down to the desired temperature. As the electricity only works when the room key is inserted, there is no chance to keep it functioning while away. Even with the controls set on coolest, it never really got lower than 25 degrees centigrade.
The public areas, lobby and restaurant are clean and well kept. Real easy is the little convenience store at the hotel entrance to grab a bottle of mineral water or a snack.
For me personal, the biggest downside of this hotel is the solely Chinese breakfast. Apart from a coffee machine, there is absolutely nothing continental provided. Fried rice or noodles are not my idea of breakfast so thank heaven for the little convenience store where one can get cakes, cookies, chocolate and yoghurts. As our group assaulted the coffee machine, it emptied already after about 10 cups served and never got refilled (not even the next day).
On the plus we got a clean and spacious room and the little convenience store at the enrance saved my appetite. On the con side the beds are extremely hard, the location is not too excellent and the full Chinese breakfast left me hungry
