Ramada Plaza ChongQing West4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel is inexpensive. After I got into my room, it took some time for the room to get cool. There are many power sockets in the room which is nice. The bed is comfortable. There is label of softness on each pillow. I like the light sensor of the closet as well. The wifi was not very stable. Water came out very slowly from the bathtub, probably using of bathtub was discouraged. The water pressure of the shower room was normal. The breakfast was basic and the service was average.
Make sure you get booked in the right hotel, as there are 2 Ramada Plaza hotels in Chongquing, one in the center and one in the west, near the Dazu Rock Carvings. This 5 star hotel has all the amenities one can expect, with comfortable rooms and a great buffet breakfast. Strangely, for an international chain hotel, no English was spoken. Very comfortable, friendly service. They did bring up feather pillows!!
After having stayed at such grand hotels during our tour this was a little let down. The hotel and it's facilities were excellent but the room was average. Service from all the staff was very good but some had trouble with English.
This hotel does not fail to impress. It is spacious. It's atrium is surrounded by the bedrooms then corridors go off from that area to other guest rooms. The rooms themselves, well ours had two doubles a ceiling to floor window, a desk/ work area, a chaise long, it was very spacious. The bathroom had a separate bath and shower, plus all toiletries, including moisturiser. Could not have needed anything more, except free WiFi , only free in lobby. We used the Hotel bar, which was opened on our request, there were 5 of us only, no service charge here, that is something you need to be aware of in hotels in China, as it does increase the price of your drink dramatically. Again here the decor and furnishings were very modern and stylish, I loved it. The restaurant serves all meals and this too is very opulent, it has large chairs/sofas in plush velvet and silver trims, a window across one side which looks out over the gardens and pool. Breakfast was very varied and would appeal to all tastes, your coffee/tea is filled up repeatedly. The hotel is near food shops restaurants and other retail outlets, literally over the road.
This property is very close to Dazu city center in a modern and comfortable hotel. Do not let Chongqing west believe that it is in Chongqing big city but as being in Congqing county and about 100 kilometers west to Chongqing city. I prefer to define it as Dazu Ramada Plaza Hotel. The instructions in the room are in English as well. Big bedroom and big bathroom. There are sufficient electricity wall connectors. Modern furniture. Iron and ironing base. Free WiFi in the room. If you take the laundry bag it will cost you 30 Yuan, in 2015. My room was 710 and I was pleased. Maybe other rooms are same. The only point to be improved is lack of sufficient toasters in breakfast since only one unit was there. I would define the hotel degree closer to 5 stars. Verry recommended when your destination is Dazu and the rock carvings. The best rock carvings are in Baodanshan rathe than rock carvings in Beishan.
Before you begin confirm that the hotel is located where you expect it. About 2 hours in a mini bus from the airport this hotel is a great base to explore the dazu rock carvings. My room was gorgeous with spotless bathro, crisp bedding, lovely robes, etc. Plenty of plug points water replenished regularly comfy bed loads of pillow choice. Decent products in the bathroom. The reception staff had basic English: well above average. I ate from the buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was mostly Chinese: pretty hot and to local taste. There was toast and mini Danish for breakfast and normally one western inspired dish in the buffet. Buffet came with local beer or wine. The pool was open from 4:30. During my 3 day stay I was the only person I saw in it. It seemed very clean and well maintained and they sold costumes on the way in. Only snag was on busy days room service came a bit late and reception checked my key card out before I was due to leave but this was sorted in minutes. Not much to do locally other than visit the carvings and museum these are must see destinations. There is a town square to walk to and you can walk alongside the river from near the roundabout with the statues of sturdy men and women. The area felt very safe to walk around I felt totally relaxed here a great choice if you are visiting the rock carvings.
Large, modern, clean, comfortable, quiet. Climate control in room works as does wifi. Huge bathroom with both large shower and tub, luxurious towels. The only reason this didn't get an excellent rating was the breakfast selection was more limited than other top hotels and the staff were not fluent in English which makes non-Chinese speakers like me struggle to get a dinner menu. (Don't get on my case about "When in China -," as I believe most of those reading my reviews in English will be Western tourists facing the same difficulties while traveling.)
Excellent all round. After a few disapointing hotels this was a gem. Staff were excellent and very helpful, the manager took the time to show us around and his english was excellent, loby and room were very impressive, breakfast was the best we had in 2 weeks in China. The buffet in the evening was tremendous value at less than £10 per head, vast choice and excellent taste, it was an all you can eat, incuding wine and beer. The address is misleading, it's one and half hours outside of Chongging in Dazu.
This was my first visited to China. Not much expect from hotel. Surprisingly, this is a very nice hotel; Hugh and Gorgeous lobby area, very new and modern facilities. Get free wifi in public area. Room is clean, modern, good as 5 star standard. Breakfast has variety of foods, nice and clean. Chinese dinner meal has good taste. I was a tour leader for the group. I really surprise that this is an international chain hotel. There were 4 receptions but none of them were speak English and helpful. They give me the key rooms without assign room number in the system. I had to assign all rooms to my clients manually and explain to concierge myself how to deliver luggages to all clients. Even in the restaurant, I asked for water, tomato sauce or direction in the hotel. Seem none of them were understand. So make sure, when you visit this hotel should learn some standard mandarin to communicate with staffs.
This hotel is gorgeous, and felt like a real retreat. There is artwork (sculptures) showcased around the hotel which we enjoyed immensely. Our room was quite luxurious and we really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they arranged our cab fare to the Dazu rock carvings. One bit of advice I would offer though, is to stick to the local cuisine at the hotel. We had been in China for a month and were missing western food so for dinner we ordered steaks. We wish we had gone with the amazing Chinese buffet on offer as were disappointed in the thin cut of the meat (impossible to cook any less than well-done) and the mashed potatoes and sauces tasted like they were from a box. But we feel that was our fault for not sticking with the local cuisine which looked fantastic. The breakfast buffet was really diverse and great. The pool outside looked quite exotic and inviting but unfortunately, there was some problem with the water so it was closed. We were disappointed, but overall, we loved our stay and would be back if there weren't so many other locations to go to while we are here.
