temple house chengdu
Once an elegant courtyard residence for Qing dynasty (1644–1911) officials, today The Temple House is a hospitality landmark with rooms and suites that feature sumptuously eclectic interiors that convey much with few fixtures. The service orientation here is constantly applauded for its ask-and-you-shall-receive direction and you know guest satisfaction isn't just lip-service when care and attention are so generously lavished upon all guests entering and leaving its precincts. And what lovely precincts these are where the old-new juxtapose yet harmonise, giving roof and forms to some of the city's most popular restaurants and drinking holes. Tivano, a trendy restaurant that serves fabulously authentic Italian cuisine, substantially augments this superb hotel as a gourmet address of Chengdu.
