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

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
