“An oasis in a hectic city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

During our vacation me and my wife spent 9 nights in this hotel in October. It was good to come "home" to this hotel after a busy day in Xi'an. The hotel garden was so beautiful that even the Xi'an smog seemed to stay somewhere outside the hotel property. The room was not big but we did not need more space. The only negative things you could say about the hotel were the very hard beds and the bad smell in the bathroom.

Breakfast was good even though very Chinese. We did use the restaurant only once for dinner as there were so many good restaurants close by. The whole area around the hotel was very nice. The Big Wild goose pagoda was a good land mark and so beautiful specially during evenings when it was lit. Within walking distance we could find many nice areas with parks, fountains, restaurants and shops. It was very easy to take the bus to downtown Xi'an (bus 609), actually much easier than taking a taxi, which were sometimes very difficult to find.

A bit surprising was that so few in the staff knew any English. But we managed to communicate with them and loved the place.

They told me I would be staying at a traditional Chinese hotel and I was so ready for it. The architecture, the colors, the gardens, the pools, the goldfish, the wooden bathtub. It was all there! I felt as if I was living and walking with history.

And, best of all, there was Wi-Fi in my room.

So, the past meets the present.

An experience not to be missed.

Room Tip: How could there be a bad room?! You are living a little piece of history.

My wife, I and daughter stayed for a few nights at the end of August. The hotel has real character and is built around several courtyards. As soon as you emerge into the courtyards you begin to absorb and enjoy the gentle and peaceful atmosphere of this place.
There is plenty going on in the evenings within easy walking distance of the hotel.
Breakfast was good-ish and the service very good. I have no hesitation in recommending a stay in this hotel.

My father & myself love this hotel! This is 1 of the best hotels which I ever have stayed in! Stepping into the hotel, I almost thought that I have travelled back >1500 years back in time to the Tang dynasty!
The architecture is a replica of Tang dynasty architecture. The hotel staff are all attired in Tang dynasty costumes. The hotel staff greet all the guests & are polite & helpful. The hotel has an inhouse Chinese orchestra troupe. 4 female musicians , dressed elegantly in Tang dynasty costumes, perform evergreen Chinese melodies on traditional Chinese musical instruments including 笛子,二胡,古筝! I was so delighted when the troupe played a song composed by Singaporean musician---城里的月光!The interior of the hotel is tastefully furnished in Chinoiserie style. Walking through the garden in the hotel is a relaxing experience as one can gaze at the many koi fish swimming in the pond. I was impressed that a computer was installed in every single guestroom in the hotel & Wifi was free! Definitely much better than some chains of 5 star hotel who charge extra fees for WIFI service.There was a lot of variety at the breakfast buffet table. From my observation, Caucasian tourists love the complimentary coffeebrewing service & settle for the usual bread . On the other hand, Asian tourists will eat the porridge, noodles & the many cooked vegetables & meat dishes offered at the buffet table. During my 4 night stay at the hotel, we sampled their dinner twice. The dishes on the menu were inspired by the imperial banquets which had graced dining halls in palaces in previous dynasties. After all, Xian was the capital of 13 Chinese dynasties!My father & myself love the steamed fish with fruits & the nutritious soup! I was so glad that I stayed in the hotel---5 star service, 5 star rooms in a palatial setting!

We had a very good experience at this hotel. It is in a beautiful place, right under the Pagoda, in a nice Park. The hotel inner gardens are beautiful. Rooms are good, with a local touch. Do not expect a Sheraton or Hilton, but yes a lovely hotel.
I would stay there again.

we stayed at this lovely hotel for three nights and WOW what a great hotel and a great value for money. the rooms were very artistic and authentic as very clean, staff was very helpful spoke average english and their breakfast spread was great.they have yummy custard dumplings.
behind the hotel was another pleasant surprise as there was a souvenir night market you could stroll at night and excercise your bargain skills , as try not to miss the great music fountain show daily just outside the hotel to your left. we really enjoyed everything about this hotel and enjoyed exploring it and the area around it. the wild goose pagoda view was an added value to this spectacular hotel as it is a few meters away and you can see it from hotel grounds.
do not stay anywhere else while in Xian you won't regret it.

Room Tip: all rooms are great

Built like an Imperial palace around 3 courtyards and single story. The courtyard gardens and water features are incredible. Good sized rooms with AC and WiFi. Interesting bathroom with wooden tub! Located outside the City Wall, but there is frequent bus service just around the corner - just do not plan on taxi out of the city to the hotel, they will try to rip you off..
The staff in general speak no English, this s a Chinese hotel, but they still manage to help - they will run off to find an English speaker. The hotel organized a car to take us to the Terracotta Warriors, where we found an authorized guide who spoke good English - free!!
Just outside the hotel is the Great Wild Goose Pagoda - worth a look as is the playing fountains in the 500 meter long water feature in front of the hotel.
