“Conveniently located but slightly dodgy hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

We spent a night in this hotel as part of our tour of Xi'an. The hotel was conveniently located, within walking distance of the main thoroughfare, but a distance from the train station. It is not a very large hotel, dark and tired, but at least they have tried to modernize the rooms as much as possible. The bathrooms have been renovated, to make it more "spa-like" and are cleaner than what one might find in a typical 3-star hotel in China. They have showers only, but they are better than average for China. What makes this hotel a bit dodgy is that there seems to be a escort service (masquarading as a spa service) on the second floor which we were advised by our tour guide to avoid and may offend some.

Nothing really wrong with this hotel, but nothing great either. Located in a rather narrow and smelly alley, but well located nevertheless, walking distance to shops, food, ATMs, etc, and a short walk to the Bell Tower. Some of the towels and bedsheets were ripped, but reasonably clean.

Plus: Good location

Minuses: Cramped rooms, shower is not separated from bathroom so bathroom floor is always wet. Mgt. lacks English skills and tries to charge for things you didn't use. Mysterious phone calls to the room late at night and early in the morning. Judging by the demimondaines in the halls and the stuff in the minibar, an adult-themed hotel.

stayed 1 night as part of a tour. rooms were cold & the hotel couldn't turn on the heating as it stops in march. extra blankets were given out but as there had been snow & rain for days the whole place was cold. the staff did try but it was hopeless for a good nights sleep. clean & good location. safe area & shopping nearby for cakes , water etc good. plenty of choice.

I was left dissapointed by this hotel, first impressions were very good, clean, friendly hotel, pretty good location and nice rooms. However the problems began when you wanted to go to sleep! We stayed here with a tour group and everyone commented on the fact that the pillows were the most uncomfortable that they had ever slept on, it was like they had rocks in them. Another member of our group also left we a bad synus infection and cold as their room was covered in mould!

Definitley not a good nights sleep!
