“Great Location, Average Room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Firstly, Xi'an was a great relief after coming from Intensly busy Beijing. The hotel is in a great location right in the middle of a really nice street of shops and restaurants including some western food like Pizza Hut and Dunkin Donuts and some big shopping malls with designer labels. We stayed here for two nights, the room was nice enough, small but had the beds were ok enough to sleep. The shower didn't have any sort of door or curtain which meant water went everywhere in the bathroom. The staff spoke enough English for us to organise a second night which helped. Location was definetly the best quality of this hotel.

Pros: Location is perfect. Right in the middle of the bustling part of town. Close to Muslim Quarter Bell Tower, Drum Tower, and South Gate. Lots of food options in the area. Three minute walk to Airport Express bus.

Cons: No wifi in room. No wifi in lobby either while we were there. There is LAN connections in the rooms which work well. Restaurant on 2nd floor seems like an odd place for breakfast. Fuse blew out a couple times while we were there and had to call multiple times and wait forever for housekeeping to deal with it. The bathroom in the mini room (booked on Agoda) is a frosted glass cylinder next to the bed. You shower on top of the toilet. No door on the "bathroom", only a curtain. So if you're looking for a romantic time with someone and you want to retain some air of mystery, do not stay here in the mini-room. Other rooms had normal bathrooms. Mini room is small but the name says it all. Strong smell of smoke everywhere. Reception doesn't speak much English.

Stayed here during Explore tour,so can't comment on price.But hotel was in a great,central location,few minutes walk from the Bell Tower.
Entrance tucked away in side street,so no views.But rooms were clean,comfortable and quite stylish.The "Western" breakfast was not up to much (warm fruit juice!),but the Chinese selection looked varied. Staff seemed pleasant enough.

I was traveling alone and stayed at this hotel in August 2011. The location was great, about 1 block from the Drum Tower and a few more from the Bell Tour. You can take the bus infront of the hotel which can take you to the train station where you can also catch a bus to the Terracotta Warriors (veeery cheap) or the other way you can take a bus to leave you in the Wall Gate entrance where you can visit and ride a bike !!
The hotel was very clean, there was no wifi service only cable. There is an area where you can use a computer but I believe they close it at 11 pm. The girl in the front desk was very nice, spoke english and there they can sell you a city map in ENGLISH !! :) They also have a tour agency, I didn´t use it but in case you are interested it is an option. The hotel entrance is not in the main avenue, it is in a small street around the corner. There is also a 24/7 mini market just beside the hotel in case you might need anything ! Another good thing is that from the airport, there are buses continuously leaving and they stop until the last plane arrives.. you can take a bus which leaves you just in front of the Melody Hotel and Bell Tower, you can walk from there to the Drum Tower, turn right and walk about 2 blocks to the hotel, I would definitely stay again in this hotel, great price for what you need !

This was a very clean hotel that was near the muslim quarter & city walls. It had free wifi in the lobby.

Room Tip: Not really sure.

Me and my husband stayed here for 2days.The hotel has a side-street entrance and easy to find.We opted for non-smoking room;was clean and comforable but with very bad view from room.The best part of the hotel is the location.Its very close to drum tower, bell tower and city wall; all walking distance.Its close to most of the attractions, just 10mins walk from Muslim street market and 10mins drive from Big Goose Pagoda.Its in middle of shopping malls and KFC/MCD are easy to find on same road. The breakfast was not that great, less western variety; mostly chinese.The hotel offered many locals tours which are pretty cheap but had only chinese speaking guide.Overall experience at this hotel was satisfactory.
