We visited this hotel for one night as part of a Viking River cruise, prior to visiting the Terracotta Warriors the following day. To say it has no kerb appeal would be to flatter the establishment. It is a dreary building in a distinctly drab area. The dreadful pall of smog over the surrounding area also did the place no favours. We and a number of fellow guests had to change rooms as the air conditioning had failed on our original floor. The heating, on the other hand, was on full blast and it was impossible to turn it down. We didn't fancy opening the windows as the air pollution was visible. The new room was OK - if soulless. Breakfast was fine. We would not return to this hotel, which was way below the standard of the others on the tour.
