"Quirky" is the word! This is actually an apartment in a high rise building with a great location. Even though I had read the reviews and had seen the pictures I was surprised and delighted to walk in and see all the life sized warriors -- just went from room to room taking pictures. We had "Pit 2", the one bedroom on the second floor. Bed was too hard for us (like everywhere in China) but there were extra comforters in the closet that we able to put under the bottom sheet for a little more cushioning.
Separate kitchen (warriors are walking through the wall with their backs to you!) with stacks of bottled water, beer, eggs and some really wonderful bread -- something new every morning we stayed. No charge for any of that.
We had taken the overnight train from Beijing and Clarence met us at the train station and let us check in at 8:30 in the morning since the room was vacant. And, yes, we left out dirty clothes and Mrs. Guo washed them!
My only problem was that there were some used personal items that made me feel uncomfortable. Someone in an earlier review said that she felt like she was in someone else's house and I see what the writer meant. I'm talking about a hairbrush with hairs in it, a shower cap, several bars of used soap...I had an "ugh" reaction even after I put some things out of sight.
Overall, seeing the Terra Cotta Warriors is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and staying here definitely added to it.
