This hotel was big, clean, comfortable and quiet. While it was nothing special it was more than enough for our three days exploring the city and using it as a base to go and see the Terracotta Warriors.
We were upgraded to a king sized room on check in - although to be honest the check in service was a little below what I expected. It was a bit rushed and abrupt.
Couldn't fault the room at all - and although breakfast was expensive it was worth it for the variety and convenience. It seemed very quiet at breakfast most mornings so not sure if everyone else was still in bed!!
The hotel is a little way out of the city - there are not many places to eat and drink nearby. We didn't mind this at all but I can understand that for some guests a 15/ 20 minute walk to get to the 'action' might be a bit far. The Sofitel bar and Azur restaurant across the complex are both excellent though if a little pricey.
We paid 400 RMB to get there and back to the Warriors and only 35RMB to get to the hotel from the Xian North train station. This was in a green and yellow public taxi. Beware of other taxi drivers trying to get you into one without a meter!! Its about 30 mins to the North Train Station and around 1 hour to get to the Warriors.
