The location is fantastic- you can just walk across to the South gate of the city wall or the bell tower or drum tower. These are very close. A slightly longer walk will take you to Grand Mosque and Muslim quarters, which are a delightful area. But hotel itself is poor. The breakfast is totally Chinese, with lots of red... More

ON arrival at the hotel they had us in the wrong type of room but they upgraded us, I would have hated to see the original room as it was dump. There was a separate lounge to bedroom. The bed was only a double not king and was hard like a table and we could not sleep I ended up... More

When we checked in, the Front Desk could not find our booking for two rooms. I told them that it was booked through Hotels.com, and they then referenced a clipboard where I saw my friend's name. They still couldn't find my name. Of course, this was the first time that I left my confirmation in my luggage held in Beijing.... More

Stayed as part of a tour group in January 2015, Modern hotel in a BRILLANT location, rooms were newly renovated or updated, very modern bathroom, rooms were small, 2 single beds and a roll away bed so we were a bit tight on space but we only stayed the one night, so it wasn't too bad. The room was all... More

Room was small and not very clean. Bed was unbelievably rock hard. Some street noise. Breakfast was awful - only ate toast. No where in the room to put luggage, no safe in the room for valuables. On the plus side, the location is great.

Close to street food area and subway. The room is clean, but shower room can be improved. The staff is ok. Nothing to complain, but nothing exceeds my expectation. I only spent one night on family travel.

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour with China Odyssey and were very pleasantly surprised. Firstly, the location could not be better--it is right next to the city walls and all major sights are in walking distance. It's convenient to anything you could want to do in Xian. Secondly, the hotel was very modern, clean and attractive.... More

My family had booked 2 rooms in Beijing and Xian through our tour company. No complaints about the holiday inn in Beijing ( we are not 5 star hotel people). However, the hotel Sktel in Xian was horrible. I would have gladly paid for a better hotel if I had known how bad it would be there. Below is a... More

As with other guests and reviews the location of this hotel is excellent. Such sights as the Drum Tower, Bell Tower and Muslim quarter are all within convenient walking distance. We also found a supermarket not far away. The reason for the title of the review is that the hotel is located in the midst of a series of fine... More
