Location is fantastic. Rooms are old and tired and smell of cigarettes as does reception area Buffet breakfast was terrible. Staff were bored and disinterested. There must be a better hotel than this in Xian?

If you are looking for an inexpensive hotel close to the City Wall and the Drum and Bell Towers then this is a hotel to consider. It is down a little side street and therefore reasonably quiet. Do not get put off by the reception. It is dire and the service utterly unhelpful but the rooms, once you get the... More

I'm afraid I can not recommend this hotel. Foyer and reception might look impresive, if a little run down, rooms are in need of refurmishment,dining room had a leak in the ceiling water dripping through, dining room service very poor

Stayed for 1 night. Location was pretty good, right next door to a supermarket which was cheap and sold some western food. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was pretty clean. The tv has no English channels though, and our view was dire (a rubbish heap) Food was average, what you'd expect in a Chinese hotel for breakfast (noodles,... More

Stayed for only two nights. Room clean but dated. In a good location to see the bell tower and drum tower. Markets, shops, restaurants etc close by. Super market next door for your essentials, with a large supermarket close by. City has a good feel to it. Cycle the city wall for a great experience.

Just for one or two nights to sleep is ok! Clear and nice, good breakfast. But don't have huge expectations for this hotel! Cheaper rooms have windows covered with ads posters from street side. But we had huge and very nice bathroom!

We spent 3 very unpleasant nights at the City Hotel Xi'an and would recommend that anyone looking for accommodation in Central Xi'an look elsewhere. I believe we had realistic expectations when booking our stay but had the following issues; 2 nights with luke warm showers and 1 night with cold water. Smoke filled our hallway and room (a mixture of... More

This hotel was booked by the tour agency I had in Beijing and Xi’an. It was definitive a higher standard than the hotel in Beijing. It was very close to the Bell and Drum Towers and the Muslim quarter. But a very disadvantage in that horel was that nobody of the staff was able to speak reasonable English in order... More

Went only for dinner, there was a large selection of food, but was able to eat only a very few dishes as I'm not much into Chinese food. Lovely restaurant, well decorated Chinese style, the service of the staff was o.k. but once again it was the language problem, fortunately we had a very nice English speaking guide to help... More
