From the cheap and dingy to the deliciously plush and all in between, Chengdu has it all. Surprisingly enough, it's not too hard to find rooms in relatively luxurious hotels in Chengdu for very reasonable prices.
Many of the hotels in Chengdu are located on or around north-south running Renmin Road (Rénmín Lù, 人民路). Getting around the city is fairly inexpensive so make a choice based on hotel facilities or price without worrying too much about transportation costs.
A number of budget hotels and hostels are also scattered about town offering bargain prices for those on tight budgets. Not all hotels are certified to receive foreign guests, so don't be offended if you are rejected without explanation.
