First off, one should know this is a hotel used by many Buddhist pilgrims coming to visit the famous Puning Temple next door, so it is a bit older and more austere, but not that much. I stayed for 5 days and although the accommodations were simple (plumbing is a bit old), the room was clean, quiet, and comfortable enough. Since it was off-season, the restaurant was not open, but the staff guided me to a small restaurant 200 meters down the road for great local cuisine. If you want all the tourist trappings, stay in downtown Chengde. If you want a more authentic (and less expensive) local Chinese experience, stay at this hotel. The staff were terrific and very kind. I loved every minute of my stay here and I will definitely be coming back!

Why this is listed as a B&B is a mystery to me. This is a hotel that happens to serve breakfast. The location is interesting. It is next door to the Puning Temple which is a great attraction to visit. However, it is in a run down neighborhood that is being demolished to, I assume, build modern housing. It is not near anything else, including food, although it is a very short bus ride or taxi to restaurants. The hotel is interesting and would be very good if it had any decent upkeep. The lobby is attractive but dark. The rooms are perfectly comfortable but very worn out. The tub leaked all over the bathroom floor each time we used the shower. This is a relative bargain and I don't regret staying there. However, keep your expectations low. Also, the Chinese buffet breakfast is an adventure.

We stayed there with our two young children and also our in-laws from the States. Our room's carpetted floor was so gross. Curtains must have not been washed for as long as the hotel exists. Our in-laws bathroom did not have hot water. Hotel really need to do something about the cleanliness of rooms and upgrade quite a lot. Receptionists were fine. Breakfast had boiled eggs, steamed buns, baozi, peanuts, pickles, and a couple more kinds of food. The building is interesting and hotel had a show (free) between 8 and 9pm which my in-law enjoyed. There is a free parking, but space is quite limited. This is just our experience. When I was checking out, I overheard a guest from overseas complimenting this hotel to the receptionist. So there may be better rooms in this hotel.

We thought Puning Hotel was very neat and unique, being on the grounds of its neighbor temple, the Puning Temple. The decor had a lot of the characteristics of the temple - Tibetan style with many bright colors. But the rooms were very run down. We stayed in the delux suite. It was very spacious but the walls had water damage and the room smelled musty. The rooms were courtyard style, so had windows opening into the hallways. The windows were not sound proof at all. The night we were there, there were many Chinese travelers who were getting up at 5:30am. Be forewarn too that the mattresses are EXTRA firm. The night's accommodation included breakfast. It was a Chinese breakfast and was very basic. If you need something more substantial, bring it yourself. We happened to have some fruits with us, so it was perfect. The staff was very nice and friendly. They were very helpful. The temple, though a bit expensive, was worth visiting. Chengde is about a two-hour drive from Beijing and can be an easy day trip now with the highway connecting the two cities completed .

The Puning hotel is set in the grounds of the Temple of the same name, one of the great attractions in Chengde. While the rooms are quite old, and the carpets definitely seem more than ready to be replaced, they are fairly well equiped. The setting is amazing. It's very quiet and, out in the courtyards and alleyways of the hotel, you can see some of the temples of Puning Temple as well as hear the monks go about their business. Even in early May, the temperatures can be quite chilly in Chengde. As the rooms are not very well isolated, we've been forced to use the A/C to warm the room on more than one occasion. The restaurant is quite special. It specialises in all kinds of Manchurian and Mongolian inspired game dishes as well as vegetarian "Temple food". The food is quite tasty, if a bit spicy and expensive by Chinese standards. The menu has photos which is great for ordering as the staff speaks very little English. Also, the main restaurant is often used for private parties and other events. This is quite alright although, as a westerner, you're guaranteed to be stared at in your corner. The real problem is that there tends to be an enthousiastic - and very loud - use of the karaoke machine with disastrous consequences for any conversation you may be trying to have. On the whole though, it was a fun experience and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone trying to get away from the boring business-hotels that one usually gets in China. But be prepared to make some concessions on the comfort and service fronts.
