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

Location of the hotel is good, but room size is toooo small, not very comfortable. Very difficult to keep the luggage & move around comfortably. Breakfast is ok nothing great. Staff is very co-operative.

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

Located next to South Xi'an Wall gate and within walking distance from Bell Tower, center of much retail & nightlife activity. Room was nice though not surprisingly small compared to more expensive hotels. Very attractive contemporary design and unlike many hotels I've stayed in, well vented - i.e. both shower and bathroom fans. Bed is firm the way I like... More

I would have never found it because it looked like a shop along the street. But the hotel is clean and comfortable. Once there, you are within walking distance to the downtown pagoda's and a street full of restaurants that are a must see when you are there. Unfortunately we don't speak Chinese but many have English in most of... More

Most negative comments seem to be from travelers not accustomed to China travel. Outside Beijing and Shanghai most hotels (unless 5 star) will be staffed with only limited English speaking staff. This hotel does have some English speaking staff at the front desk, but not highly fluent. The reveiwer traveling with a tour group, who was placed in a room... More

Stayed here in October during a trip to China. As with everywhere else in China the staff could do with a real course in customer service and treating customers politely. The room was tiny and the windows do not look like they have ever been cleaned. It is little things like cleanliness which make the real difference in average hotels.... More
