“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We stayed here for two nights during a longer tour of China. This hotel is nicely appointed, in a good location for exploring the City. Rooms are clean, stylishly decorated with all the usual amenities expected of a good quality hotel. Staff were attentive and helpful and most spoke good English. Food a little on the expensive side and not many western choices if you are tiring of chinese food by the time you get here. Wine very expensive.

Stayed in a standard room for two nights after being upgraded from the Mercure. I was generally impressed with the room size and amenities. The room did feel a little dated but was impeccably clean. Location was great too - in a quiet area but still very close to the railway station where you can get the bus to the Terracotta Warriors. Staff were lovely and spoke great English, and check in and out was very fast. I had a very early flight out of Xi'an and the staff were very helpful in organising a taxi to the airport. My main issues with the room were the dim lighting and slow aircon. The aircon was set to high when I arrived and the room was insufferably hot for the next two days even though I adjusted the settings. This made sleeping particularly difficult! My other issue was the breakfast buffet, which didn't look as if it was being regularly replenished and when I ate there, not much variety was available. However since I received the upgrade from the Mercure, I only paid the Mercure price for breakfast, so I think I still got my money's worth.

What a difference after the devastating we had experienced in Beijing... There is a huge difference in the service and quality given between Western chain hotels and 5 star Chinese state hotels....
The welcoming, the friendliness, the service everything was outstanding .
BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE AND QUIET rooms; superb bathrooms;
I just loved it
People really tried to help you make your stay as pleasant as possible.
The only regret I had was tha t we had only 2 nights here...

We stayed for two nights with a 6 month baby and found the stay great. They new we were staying because of our wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday so they gave us a cake for each. Every time we interacted with staff, they were always polite and helpful. We would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Make are request and they seem to make an effort to accommodate.

What a lovely hotel! The rooms have old-fashioned, Chinese-style furniture that give them a wonderful ambience. It had many Western amenities: hair dryer,TV, phone, plenty of heat, Internet access, bath products. Room service was prompt and the food was good. A number of the staff spoke excellent English, which is rare in Xi'an, and it was very helpful. The hotel is in a complex with a Sofitel and a Chinese government hotel, putting it back off the main street and away from any noise. It is also within walking distance of the lively Muslim quarter and other main city attractions.

Room Tip: Online booking made a great discount possible.

This hotel has a certain old world charm with lots of dark timber panelling, polished stone and colourful 50s style carpet. The hotel is located within a peaceful garden setting away from the noise of the main road. All staff we came in contact with were so friendly and helpful, their English was embarrassingly excellent compared to our few words of Mandarin.

Rooms were generous in size, well equipped, comfortable and clean and with free Wifi. The double bed was huge. Buffett breakfast was excellent, with plenty of variety. Checking in and out was fast and efficient.

Could not wish for a better stay.

Spent a few days in Xi'An at the Grand Mercure with my girlfriend, with the intention of planning her birthday and to take the opportunity to propose to her.

As a Accor Le Club member, the hotel took very good care of my needs during my stay. The front desk staff (Mr Jerry Zhao) heard my intentions and went the extra mile to help me, such as birthday cake, breakfast in bed plus late check out.

Overall, the rooms are fntastic, apart from the fact that one can feel a little spooked out at times, as the pathway t the hotel is not very brightly lit. I would however be more than happy to stay in Grand Mercure the next time I return to Xi'An.
