Buddha Zen Hotel (fóshēnwénhuà jiǔ diàn) Review
Drawing inspiration from the nearby Wenshu Zen Buddhist monastery, this boutique hotel has carefully designed antique wooden decorations, a peaceful courtyard, wonderful staff, and good food. Located on the Wenshu Fang walking street, it is very popular and often fully booked in advance: reserve early and try to get a room facing the inner courtyard rather than the street for the most Zen-like experience. The Chinese restaurant is attractive and serves good food; staff members do an excellent job of giving recommendations and directions to places around the city.
