This is not a small guest house but a relatively large hotel. Our room was situated looking out on the alley with restaurants below that had a thriving and noisy busy til past midnight on the weekend. The halls are dark, the rooms were adequate but not particularly pleasant. Breakfast (Chinese buffet) was ok. As far as I could tell,... More

The hotel is immaculately maintained and the service is impeccable. The room was wonderful, beautiful, elegant, classic and comfortable, for those who want peace and quiet. This is by far the most perfect vacation I have ever taken. Go... and you'll be so glad you did. I promise!

The hotel is some way from the centre of Xi'an, but the local area is itself interesting: the Big Goose Pagoda is nearby and behind the hotel is a "food night market" where you can eat outside from all sorts of small stalls. Personally, I found the nearby daily water fountain show thoroughly boring, but other reviewers seem to be... More

This place has a great location, being next to the Big Goose Pagoda Square. The square has an excellent fountain show in the evening. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. The breakfast is Chinese so takes a bit of getting used to. No fruit juice for e.g. There is an office on the 3rd floor where you can make... More

A good value hotel, very close to the big goose pagoda , which turned out to be a great location , right next to the daily waterfall show. Lots of rooms at this hotel, it's Much bigger than it looks from the outside. We booked our Terracotta Warriors tour with them and was very pleased with the tour

First of all, this is a hotel (not B&B or inn) - but perhaps the lack of restaurant affects the classification? They serve breakfast for Y20 (limited but sufficient Western options) but nothing else. Our double room was quite small but tastefully decorated and well-furnished. For approx US$50 per night it was fine. The large window between bedroom and bathroom... More

I booked Ci'en after reading the reviews. We are a family of four and they were able to confirm all of us in the same room (two doubles) which can be difficult outside the USA. Firstly, this is no B&B or inn. This is a pretty big hotel, with at least a hundred rooms. Check-in was a little rough. no... More

This hotel has been chosen by our friend. He thought that nights in this hotel will give us a taste of China and he has not been mistaken. This is as very very chinese style hotel. Rooms are very warm with big bed, wooden wardrobe and elegant decorations. Bed is big and soft so sleeping there was a pleasure. From... More

Great location, right next to the Big Goose Pagoda and the restaurant area, very convenient! Great service. Room is standard and small, but clean and has all you need. Loved the Tang-style decoration, very unique! The only problem I had was you could hear people talking outside or next door, but since I could fall asleep really easily and fast,... More

This hotel was in a good location for the tourist, located close to the Big Goose Pagoda etc, unfortunately when we stayed they were replacing the carpet in the hallways which they failed to advise, this was an inconvenience as they worked late and started early, we moved to the Oriental hotel which was old but satisfactory, quiet and comfortable
