The hotel is too far from the centre to be a viable location to visit the city. If you are "fortunate" to be ugraded to a river view room, you will also be seranaded late into the evening by the live band at the riverside barbecue, which is mediocre at best. The concierge arranged a guided trip to the terracotta warriors but (not the hotel's fault) there was a cycle race on the booked morning and I had a two mile walk to meet the car.
When I booked a taxi to the airport, the concierge set me up with one of his mates at three times the proper fare. I was suffering from food poisoning at rhe time (again not the hotel's fault -I think) and didn't catch on until it was too late. Be careful, you have been warned!
