Stayed here a couple nights as part of a package tour of 4 cities so I pre-paid when I booked the tour. Hotel is right downtown on a main bus line & big modern shopping centre only a short walk away. Bell & Drum Towers are right in the vicinity too. Xi'an is a beautiful old city although it poured... More

I stayed 10 days at the Melody. The location is quite good for proximity to major city attractions My choice for this hotel was because it is just opposite the airport shuttle bus line 1, which ends here. Not even a taxi can come that close, this is a great plus of this hotel. Room wise you get what you... More

I have stayed in better hostels. Also you cannot sleep at night becuase the noise. The only good... More

1. Before we even had a chance to check-in to our rooms, we were hounded by hotel staff to join tours organized by the hotel. 2. Desk staff were very curt, and rude at times, and hardly spoke any English. Generally unhelpful. 3. No secure access to floors where guest rooms are located. 4. Rooms smelled heavily of cigarette smoke... More

We choose this hotel due to price and location. Read from TA about this hotel before about old and their cheap old furniture , TV and road noises. We chose the room that facing to Drum tower and it is beautiful at night from the window. Room heat temp control switch is working well and you can control the heating... More

Reading the recent reviews of this hotel, nearly put me off staying here. Although much of what was said is somewhat true i.e. the hotel is in need of a refurb, it is however comfortable enough for a couple of nights. The rooms at the back are quiet and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Checkout was at... More

Single room with private bathroom, tv and fridge. Hot shower with good preassure was be best thing, along with the A/C in the room which worked perfectly during summer season. The room looked old and everything seemed quite dated. It looked clean but so old, including torn wallpapers, that at the end you never know if it is really clean... More

Value for price : the price of that hotel is very cheap, and the location is absolutely perfect because the entrance of the hotel is the airport shuttle bus station. The bus literally stops at less than 2 meters from the door. Hotel and room : To be honest, for the European level, this hotel can seem very old or... More

Stayed here for 6 days and I guess I just classify it as average. Room was very small and not layed out well. Rooms are very dated and dark. Location was good ..... close to Bell and Drum Tower.... 2 blocks. Very noise at night with the street traffic outside.... lots of car/bus horns. Front desk was OK but generally... More
