Wharf Hotels announced the opening of Niccolo Chongqing in China. Chongqing’s new “sky hotel” is located in the heart of Jiangbeizui, Chongqing’s dynamic new Central Business District at the most fashionable address.
A highly anticipated property since its award-winning sister hotel opened in Chengdu in 2015, Niccolo Chongqing, ideally placed on levels 54 through 62, will offer captains of industry and leaders in style 252 luxurious guestrooms and suites with sweeping views of Chongqing and beyond that naturally shift as dawn transitions to dusk. Guests will enjoy unrivalled vistas of Chongqing’s spectacular landscape and merging mountains, skyline and the dramatic confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing rivers.

Forming a part of Chongqing IFS (International Finance Square), the city’s new development incorporating the hotel, high-end office space, residences and luxury retail, Niccolo Chongqing is 30 minutes’ drive from Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport with easy access to the metro station linking the rest of the city.
Overlooking the city’s spectacular skyline and rivers, rooms are composed of natural textiles and leathers in subtle earth tones, carpeted floors and beautifully upholstered armchairs in a stylish, comfortable feel.
To complement Niccolo Chongqing’s guestrooms and suites will be a variety of stylish, modern facilities. Crowning the hotel and sky tower on level 62, Niccolo Chongqing will debut two contemporary destination-dining venues, Niccolo Kitchen and The Tea Lounge, featuring sky-high vistas combining delightful new menus, Niccolo’s signature service and the hotel’s culinary expertise.
Bar 62, offering live music on selected evenings and aptly named for its location, promises guests a panoramic bar and lounge experience with breath-taking views from floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city’s skyline and twinkling lights, headed by award-winning mixologists.
In addition, the hotel will include a complete wellness concept encompassing the Sky Gym, The Spa at Niccolo with five treatment rooms, and the Sky Pool, a 20-metre pool surrounded by windows looking over Chongqing, while guests rejuvenate and re-energise their mind, body and soul.
