This hotel is built around a charming traditional Chinese garden and is in a great location very close to the Wild Goose Pagoda and a very lively square and an area with plenty of restaurants, bars etc within (very) easy walking distance.
Our room was nice, and it overlooked the garden - the only possible downside of this was the peacocks who live in the garden (yes, really) can be a bit noisy on occasion, but who can't live with being woken by a peacock, doesn't happen every day :-)
Breakfast was good, however we didn't eat dinner in the restaurant so I won't comment on that, or indeed on the pool/spa which we didn't use.
The only thing that annoyed me about this hotel was the little bar off to one side of the lobby (not the lobby bar itself), which charged us an exorbitant amount for two very tiny glasses of red wine...probably explains why it was so empty!
Overall we really liked this hotel for it's ambience and it's location with easy access to a lively part of Xi'an for an evening stroll.
