“Good location, clean environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms are clean enough. The bed is quite comfortable. I can fall asleep immediately everytime I lied on the bed. It's a bit noisy at night sometimes, because people got drunk and knocked on the wrong door. The hotel is in a good location. It's close to the south door, and the bar street. 10mins walk to the bell tower and the drum tower. The breakfast in the hotel is ok. Not many choice, but it worth the price.

Really there was no problem getting to the hotel from the dropoff point of the airport shuttle at the Melody Hotel. Without luggage it's scarcely a ten minute walk. But the taxi driver knew of two Lemon hotels, and needed only to go south down South Guangji Street and watch on the west side for the big green vertical hotel sign with the M logo on the building.

The 'deluxe' room had a double bed, window, en suite etc., modern facilities. A big wall-mounted TV had no English channel but did provide coverage of the London Olympics then going on. A kind of coat stand had to do duty as a wardrobe, and there was no fridge, but the air conditioning was good, and I found nothing to complain about.

On the ground floor not far from reception was the breakfast room. You asked for a Y15 token in the morning before going in, and it was added to the bill. No decent tea, coffee or fruit juice, and certainly no cereal, but all the same a buffet breakfast to set you up for the day.

This was a very nice hotel to spend a few days in. The room was big and bright and very comfortable. The flat screen tv was huge but even so the whole picture couldn't be seen and some events in the olympic games were spoiled because only on teams score was visible. The carpet was also slightly stained. Apart from that the room was very nice and modern looking. The location was great for taking a cycling trip on top of the ancient wall of Xi'an, which is obviously a regular tourist excursion since there are several bike hire shops on the wall. It is best to find out where these shops are before you set off because they are quite near to the hotel and if you set off in the right direction, you will reach it in about 20 minutes. From there you have 100 minutes to cycle round the city on the ancient wall so don't dilly dally, keep going at a steady pace. There is very little other traffic on the wall apart from bikes and the odd light motorised vehicle. The hotel is also relatively well placed for a taxi trip to the Terracotta Warriors site. By taxi the fare is about 100 to 150 Yuan each way and it is relatively easy to hail a taxi just outside the hotel. The hotel reception can be a little smokey at times as some of the staff sit and smoke there. It is not an imposing entrance but the three receptionists are quite helpful.

Room Tip: I doubt if there is much difference in the rooms

I stayed in this hotel for two nights in July. The hotel is fairly modern, and the staff were helpful, although their English is limited. The location of the hotel was walking distance to the Muslim quarter where you can get some very tasty, cheap food. There were also plenty of convenience stores near the hotel.

The room was large and even had stuffed toys and a mini aquarium with fake fish. The bed was large and comfortable. The wifi was lightning fast. The room didn't have a refrigerator though, and as someone who likes to have a couple of beers in my room to unwind after a long day and before heading back out at night, I found this a little annoying. This is my only complaint about the room, though.

The hotel is very nice for the price, and the location is convenient enough. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a good, affordable hotel in Xi'an.

We just got back from our trip through parts of China. My best advice for anyone planning a trip in China is to buy a hand held translator. It will be worth every penny. Very few people speak engligh. It makes is hard to get around and can become very frustrating.
Lemon Hotel - small hotel but good for a few nights.
Pros

Great price $42.00US. Nice pleace then I expeted for the price.
Located inside wall area
Walking distance to the Bell tower and Drum tower
Lots of shop and chinese resturants
Bed comfortable for china
You can book their driver for the airport the day before you have to leave. 130 RNB
You can book their dirver to take you to the Terra Cota Warriors. He will take you and wait to take you back to hotel. Book the day before
Breakfest is inclued in price

Cons
Breakfest is only chinese style.
They do not understand english. It was hard to communicate
The front dest people are on the slow side checking in and out.
Was not going to give us our booked price until we show the paperwork. If you book it on the internet bring your paperwork with you for proof of price.
The taxis are hard to get out front. You can get them but it can talk a while. They do not speak any english.
Taxi driver from the airport over charged us. He was a licensed taxi but still over charged us. He charged us 200 RNB .The hotel driver to airport as 130 RNB
No western places to eat. My kids did not like the chinese food. But they eat the fried rice and made it thourgh.

This is a nice hotel rather well positioned next to the City Wall and within walking distance to the Drum and Bell tower. I can recommend the hotel and I had no problem staying there. There are however some things with this hotel that are unusual to me and that should be pointed out:
• Yes (as some have pointed out before) the floor carpet is stained, but clean enough. You have free slippers in your room that you can use if you are easily scared of spots.
• The breakfast is 15 RMB/pp and is a Chines breakfast only. Buy a ticket in the lobby and give it to the lady in the restaurant.
• The staff speaks very little English, but they have an ipad which the run Google Translate on, so it is quite easy to communicate anyway. Just set some extra time aside.
• The will want a deposit of 200 RMB upon check in. Save the receipt and you’ll get it back on departure. The girl in the lobby will send someone to check your room before they give back the money and this will take 2-3 minutes extra upon checkout.
• The room is provided with a minibar with food and drinks but no alcohol and also a “special” minibar in the bathroom with lotions and some “hardware” for you and your partner. This goes well with the panoramic window from the bed straight into the shower, and the mirror wall behind the bed I guess…Makes you wonder what kind of target group this hotel is aiming at…
• The most annoying thing about this hotel was that the considered toilet paper as gold. A “full” roll of paper hold only about 1 cm thick of paper. No extra roll in the room. So every day I had to go to the lobby to get more paper. Very annoying.
• Free wifi in the room as well as cabled internet.

Room Tip: Rooms towards west (even numbers?) are towards the back and possibly more silent
