I stayed at this hotel as part of a tour group. At first impression it seemed to be a business hotel. The set up of the rooms would support this except for the fact that there was no Safe in the rooms. I was initially given a room without a window.....they seemed to think that a lighted glass installation would... More

This non smoking hotel allows smoking in all rooms and they even put ashtrays under the non smoking signs in the lobby. Management English is very poor and rooms are very old and dirty. Food is dangerous as temperatures are wrong and once again the area is smoky. I would not stay again as I lost money by leaving early... More

The Skytel Xian is located in a great area close to the Bell Tower, shopping and restaurants. I would stay here again just for the location. The rooms were nice enough: good outward appearance with a lot of minor maintenance issues we found to be common in China. Free in room WiFi was reliable and had decent speed for a... More

We were here from 26th to 29th May 2014. The hotel is situated very well with Bell tower, shopping malls and restaurants situated within a walking distance. The rooms are small and dingy.The staff try their best to help but language can be a problem. Breakfast can be a major concern if you are a vegetarian like me. All in... More

Stayed 2 nights on our tour, average size rooms clean and comfortable, average hotel with good breakfast, easy walking to shopping center and night life in Xian. No real problem to stay here again for a couple of days.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel in Xi'an. It is located on the Main Street, full of restaurants and shops and close to the Bell Tower and the food street market in the Muslim area. Near the hall you have a café, where you can have breakfast or relax. The rooms are quite big and clean, but a little... More

The rooms in this hotel are very large and nicely decorated. It is a 5 minute walk from the city wall and on a large avenue , the champs elysees from Xi'an. The only downside is the loud music that comes from the nightclub on the corner but we slept through it . the frontdesk hardly speaks english so there... More

We were happy with our stay at this Hotel, even though, arriving late in the evening, we had to request some bath towels - this was a bit difficult, as the staff speak very little English. Our room was clean and comfortable with a view overlooking the main street. We would stay here again - this hotel was booked through... More

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
