This is definitely not a 5 star hotel, it's dated but the rooms are large and well equipped, the beds are comfortable and it is very quiet. It's just outside the city wall, around the area is a building site but it's quick to walk into town (around 10 mins). The breakfast is of a good standard with a good... More

We have just returned from a multiple city china trip. This was the worst of the four 5 star properties that we stayed. The problem starts with the check in itself. The staff cannot communicate in English and inexperienced. To take copies of our passport the girl at the reception actually pulled open a passport which had 4 older passports... More

I stayed 2 nights for a busienss trip. The hotel is very well located, it is situated in front of the wall and less than 20 min. walking from the Xi'an Bell Tower. The concierge was very supportive and helpfull for the choice of the resturant for the dinner out. The room was very large and with a top view... More

The parking in the front, limited at good times, is absolutely a wreck with the construction going on next door and around the hotel. However, that doesn't negate its good location across from a Wall gate and (if you face towards it) the good views. Western style hotel, limited English.

Almost nobody speaks and understands English well in this well located hotel; we were on the 20th floor but were not overlooking the wall but rather the construction project (and I understand that the hotel has no control over such things). The room was fairly large but had only one comfortable chair; the air conditioning did not stay on during... More

Stayed for 5 nights there in a business trip, the hotel is well located but there are several constructions going on around it, the receptionists were quite well trained and have relatively good commands of English, the room was good and "roomy" and clean, but not spotless, actually it was the case in many areas of the hotel as it...

Unfortuneately there were major public drainage works in progress right outside when we were there. This ment that we were wakened at 5 A.M. with a dawn chorus of jack hammers and pile drivers. The hotel itself id not bad but not great either. The location is great for visiting the city walls which are intact after 2000 years. The... More

We spent three nights in a big double room on the 12th floor overlooking the city walls. The room was clean and comfortable and the bed was as big as a football field. The room was easily three times as big as some other hotel rooms that we've stayed in around Europe and the US. The decor did look a... More

Fellow traveller (or traveler, hereafter FT) & I read earlier reviews & I am not sure how this was decided. Location good in the sense of seeing the city walls, not good in that you are OUTSIDE the city walls. Local tour guide said no tall building within the old city walls. We were there for 2 nights ...
