I an doing business in the Chanba region of Xi'an so the Kempinski is perfectly situated for me. I have stayed at the Kempinski at least 8 times over the past two years. The hotel is rather remote from Downtown (a minimum 30 minute drive and usually longer with Xi'an's horrible traffic) so if you are there to visit the city, the Kempinski is not the right choice.
The Kempinski is the closet high end hotel to the Terracotta Warriors easily cutting the drive by half when compared to hotels in downtown.
The hotel has a huge conference center and is excellent for conferences.
The staff is very friendly and professional.
The hotel can feel a bit sterile (still can't believe they have not added more plants which would quickly and easily add warmth the hotel interiors. The Rooms are large with half the rooms having a good view of the Ba River. However the furnishings can be rather sparse in the larger king rooms. Please bring in more comfortable sitting chairs Kempinski! The bathrooms are large with nice showers. One complaint about the bathrooms is that the lighting above the sinks is quite dim.
Nice grounds outside during the spring and summer. They have an indoor pool that is also nice.
There are three restaurants, a Chinese Restaurant, a Western Restaurant and a Pauliner Brew Haus. The food and service is excellent in all venues. I especially enjoy the Brew Haus. The Pauliner Beer is excellent. The hotel also has a lobby lounge with great views.
