I stayed 3 nights with 3 friends. we got the extra bed free of charge which is great. the cost per person per night between 3 of us was only around £10. very cheap!
the room is really big, its got comfortable bed, very firm and good to sleep on. there was only 1 very soft pillow on the bed, but asking for extra pillow was no problem.
The bathroom was clean, had 2 showers, one stand alone and one was over the bath tub. There was a bad sewage smell coming from the drains every time the shower is used.
The location of the hotel was good, walking distance to the bell tower area.
The restaurants associated with the hotel is actually located in Sofitel next door. the food was quite nice but slightly pricey.
The hotel staff was helpful in booking taxi's and shows for us. We wanted to go watch traditional Tang dynasty show with dumpling feast. the hotel confirmed the booking, but when we got to the show, the staff there said we could not have the dumpling feast as it required 24 hour prior booking. the hotel staff never informed us of that. which was a disappointment for me.
catching a taxi into town from hotel was tough, as there seem to be a shortage of taxi's in Xi'an. the hotel staff can only get a taxi for us if the taxi had dropped somebody off at the hotel. so sometimes we had to wait for over half an hour for a taxi.
The hotel had no problem getting us taxi to go to Terracotta warriors and to the airport. We had to book half a day or day before with the hotel.
