“Lovely central setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Great central city location in a quiet enclave with Accor Softel and Grand Mercure, with their facilities available to guests from the Mercure. Clean comfortable room with good service made the stay very pleasant. Walking distance to almost everything within the city walls. Would recommend and definitely stay again.

I can mostly repeat what others say here: 1)This square is a very nice area highlighted with the luxurious 5 star Sofitel at the center; 2) You can use the unbelievable pool and gym at the Sofitel while staying at the Mercure; 3) Bus 306 is easy to catch about a block away to carry you to the Terra Cotta Warriers; 4) There's not much around there as far as restaurants or shopping and Muslim street is the place to go for eating and such. But contrary to other reviewers, we believe it is really too far to walk there. The local double-decker bus (603?) makes the rounds in the area quite frequently, so you can catch it. The Mercure is smaller than the Sofitel, but they are big on service. Just like other visitors reported, we were upgraded to a suite at no extra charge. So, if you are on a budget, I recommend staying here. If money is no object, you might try the Sofitel.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the square not the busy street.

We had a good stay here, but it is rather overshadowed by the company, the Grand Mercure and the flashy Sofitel. Our greeter at the desk, Laurence, could smile a bit more and didn't really seem too keen to help us with a minor problem with our booking. Everyone else was excellent. Couple of tips - you can use the spa in Sofitel just across the road for free, which is gorgeous. And bizarrely you can see into the shower from your room - which you might think is great, or like my Mrs., hate it. Breakfast is overpriced, but okay. Entertainment is a few metres away in the park down the road with people dancing in the evenings.

We stayed here for two nights on toe way to Beijing.

We had a god-awful experience with the cab driver from the train station to the hotel - we printed the address in Chinese as per the hotel's website, but the cabbie could not find the place, so we ended up having to walk for a good 20 minutes after having got the help of a police officer!!

Needless to say i was in a Very Bad Mood when we got to the hotel. It didn't help that once you enter Remin Square, there is no proper labeling, so we had to walk around for a few more minutes before someone pointed us in the right direction.

I told the gentleman at the front desk my woes, and he was very sympathetic and immediately (and unexpectedly!) upgraded us to a suite at no extra cost. He said that if i say "Remin Square", cabbies should be able to find it even if they don't have the address - so a good learning for next time. There were a couple of others hovering around the front desk, all of whom were really helpful too.

The room itself was very nice. The hotel is not the newest, but i really have nothing to complain about. The room was clean, made up, and had everything that we could need. We ordered room service, which arrived in a jiffy.

All the facilities such as pool, gym and spa are located in the adjoining building, a 30 second walk away. There were a couple of restaurants within the square, as well as an outdoors garden patio where you could order drinks - which was lovely in the evening.

They made sure there was a cab waiting for us at 5.30 AM to take us to the airport, with someone at the front desk who spoke English so we could communicate with the cabbie.

All in all a good stay. Its not a 4 or 5 star joint by any means, but a good, clean, comfortable place for a couple of nights!

Booked 2 rooms at the hotel for 3 travellers on April 29/13 for 3 nights. As per previous reviews, we advised out cab driver to take us to the Sofitel. Once there, the bellman at the Sofitel wheeled our suitcases a short distance across the courtyard to the Mercure. One room was upgraded to a suite. Both rooms were comfy, clean and the bathrooms were good. We ate breakfast at the hotel and could not fault the menu; eggs to order, cereal, toast, fruit plus the usual Chinese fare. Breakfast at the Mercure was half the cost of breakfast at the Sofitel.
Courtyard setting is very beautiful. Rooms were quiet. Walking distance to Muslim market and hotel arranged for a taxi to the Terra Cotta Warriers. Easy access to wifi. Beds were comfy by Chinese standards.
Would definitely stay again.

Stayed 3 nights at the Hotel. Room was nice and clean and the staff were friendly and spoke good english. The Breakfast had fresh fruit and cereals and you gets eggs made to order and other options available. All guests can use the swimming pool located in the sofitel hotel located in the square. You can get to the the bell tower and south gate by getting the Number 603 bus which the bus stop is located 5 min from the hotel ( exit right ) this takes about 5 mins on the bus. Would stay again if visting Xian.

I enjoyed this hotel. even a mix up with my on line reservation, the friendly staff worked it out.

the room was excellent and affordable. clean and comfortable bed. great bathroom facilities. and super super staff. from front desk to bell hops. door men, etc.

the bell hop literally ran to the street to get us a taxi during the taxi shift change, when you can almost never get a taxi.

close, almost walking distance from train station...walking distance, about 3/4 mile to muslim quarter, and super nice area. great restaurants nearby as well as general shopping. busy friendly area, but hotel is in a quiet gated complex area. Near the grand mercure but probably half the price.

comfortable bed and great wi fi. television with many english/american stations. even bath robes, safe, and good restaurants in building.

I can not say enough good things about this place. One of those places i would come back to in a minute.
