Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights in August 2013. The location of the hotel is not too central, but a short taxi ride of 10 mins will take you to the Xian City Wall. If you look to stay in the center, not the hotel for you. The best thing about this hotel is the staff (efficient, kind and good level of English), the breakfast (buffet is that of a 5 star hotel) and the hotel lobby. As for the rooms, they are clean and with comfy beds but decor is a quite updated and would need some renovation. Bathroom was small too. Overall a four star hotel, but need some rooms renovation to keep the stars. Also used the gym and pool - great facilities but gym was a bit hot (AC seemed not to be working properly there).
