As it says in the title. The rooms make you expect a four star service. What you get is a slightly clueless, perfunctory, and unhelpful approach. The tours they organise are low quality and overpriced. The breakfast is poor. Chinese options are OK though not great. Western options are plain bad. The coffee and juice is appalling. On the other... More

We stayed here as part of a tour package and feel this hotel is not good enough for money paid. The only thing this hotel has going for it is its foyer, but suffice to say that does not reflect in rooms offered or service. Our 1st room was spacious but very dirty, we were offered a smaller room with... More

The air pollution in Xi'an is very bad, much worse than in Beijing. We could never see the sky, just dull grey all the time. The hotel was hard to find because the sign is up really high on the building which you cannot see when you are walking right beside the building. But it is less than a 10... More

On our journey through China, this hotel was absolutely the best. It is situated right next to the south entrance to city walls, which means that all center activities are within walking reach from the hotel. Hotel itself has really nice spacious rooms with king size beds and big shower glass tube. Toilette is separated from the shower. There is... More

The hotel was average. Roomy and clean enough. When I was there the hotel was right beside a night club (maybe even in the same complex but not sure of that. I didn't know that when I booked. I'm a pretty easy sleeper but it was just loud music well into the morning hours. It's too bad because otherwise the... More

Stayed here for two nights. Wish I could have stayed for longer. Staff were great - didn't have to ask for WIFI password, where to have breakfast or where the lifts were. Fantastic central location within minutes of shopping and food stalls. Also those rickshaw vehicles are just out the front door. Xian is made for pedestrians very easy to... More

Review Xian Skytel Location: The Skytel is located next to the Louis Vuitton shop in Xian. On my first visit to Xian in 1986 there were zero private shops. The Skytel is on the southern leg of the main cross streets that mark the center of Xian, capital of China for 14 dynasties. I spent one night at the Skytel... More

Stayed at this hotel on 8th November. The location is the best as it is near the malls & the shopping area. Bell & Drum tower is near the hotel. But the rooms are very small. The bathroom walls are of glass with no curtains. That is the biggest problem if you are with children. Apart from the bathroom problem... More

Skytel was very central, so close to the Drum Tower you could walk to the place. We were comfortable, and the Staff were courteous, though could not understand English! The usual outer bathroom wall in frosted glass..........is this the style today? Reasonable breakfast.
