The room is unusually presented but is quite okay. In May it is quite warm and the room doesn't really cool down at night. The staff are really helpful and organised a driver to the terracotta warriors & Banpo museum. The hotel is in a great location near the City Wall, the Bell Tower, Drum Tower and the markets. The...

This hotel is not far from the subway and from the drum tower. It smells good when you enter the lobby. The rooms are nice and clean. The only strange thing is that the door to the toilet in the room is made of glass ! You have to stay in a corner of you room if you want to...

Hotel is in a great location. We chose to stay in the 'fashion' room but it was much smaller than we expected. Very low ceilings and made us feel very claustrophobic. You also can't open the window and the air conditioning barely worked which made the room very warm. Staff were nice and friendly but didn't have much knowledge about...

This hotel turned out to be an unexpected surprise. It is located between the historic Bell Tower and the city wall's most beautiful gate, the South Gate, and among high end retail (Prada, Rolex, etc.), absolutely the best location in Xi'An. There are lots of restaurants in the area, banks/ATMs, opportunites for self catering, etc. We traveled with our two...

Minus: The hotel was worn and not particularly well soundproofed. Despite of staying on the 7th floor a lot of traffic was heard from the street. However, the hotel is not more dull or noisy than many other hotels in the same style in China. Plus: Very well located hotel room, we had a large room with two bedrooms, one...

This hotel is well located a few steps from the south wall and directly on a main road full with shops. It is easy to walk to the Bell tower and the muslim quartier. Since I travelled solo I was given room 531 which is a small cozy room but unbearable of the heat. The aircon didnt worked properly and...

Very slightly better than average for a 3 star Chinese hotel. Easily booked, very inexpensive, extremely well placed for city centre (5 min from bell tower) . Staff helpful but very basic English. Room however was smelly ( stale cigarette smoke), noisy ( window didn't shut properly) , usual very hard Chinese beds. The most intriguing part however was the...

The location is good - off the Main Street leading to the Bell Tower. The Muslim quarter is about 15-20 minute walk. Rooms are small and compact, but clean. NOTE: there is no division between bathroom and bedroom, so if you are sharing but would like privacy, bear this in mind. Breakfast is average. Price good.

We stayed here for 2 nights, we are a family of 4. It is well located, with restaurants nearby (even western food, if your kids are not into Chinese food). There is a supermarket and a fruit stall nearby, and the Bell and Drum towers are within walking distance. 35 mins car ride to Xi'an bei station.
