“Wendy Wu Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Two thirds of the way through our tour so this was surprising to find the bed was not so hard.
good complimentaries, catered for Western & Eastern breakfasts, quiet, central shopping, supermarket 10 mins away, had trouble with the internet,lighting not the best. Had a nice view out to the pool and garden.

Good rooms, though once again slightly tired at the edges because of the amount of use they get. Despite that, the hotels Travelsphere use seem to be the same ones that other tours use, as we saw customers from Wendy Wu etc. Food was of a very good standard for evening meal but remember If you aren’t prepared to eat Chinese food or will moan about it after a couple of servings, try Benidorm! It was at this point a couple of people began looking for alternatives. Breakfast was reasonable with plenty of choice.
The hotel is located on a roundabout and we didn’t venture out alone so can’t really comment on local facilities. We did the optional night tour of Xian which was well worth it, especially looking at local food items for sale, including frogs (live), fish (live and jumping out of tubs) and unidentified items! At the end of this tour we found a Spar that sold bottles of beer for 25p! A bargain and just the thing to quench thirst after a busy day.
Terracotta Warriors are amazing. Xian was really interesting. A great visit.

We stayed as part of a Travelsphere tour and had a brilliant view of the city walls - lovely of an evening. The room was clean and spacious but dark with adequate furnishings, not as tired as most places we stayed in China. The bathroom and facilities were satisfactory. For the size of the hotel the breakfast room was very small and finding a seat was difficult, quite chaotic really. Breakfast itself was not very good either. Overall an ok hotel for a stop over.

Really nice hotel all round!
Reception area was really nice & spacious, the bar was relaxing, restaurant (breakfast) plentiful and really nice :)
The road outside was really busy but to be honest it didn't disturb my sleep as the blackout curtains & double glazing seemed it keep it all out.
Make sure (if possible) that you get a room with views of the city walls, really lovely big windows make this view spectacular and also watching the Tai Chi in the park in the mornings was lovely.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with views of the city walls.

Large modern skyscraper but like all the Wendy Wu hotels we stayed in in China, it was very poorly maintained and very grubby with horrible dirty dish rags for towels. The phone did not work , the breakfast was terrible and chaotic. Not to be recommended.

Only stayed one night on a Travelsphere 8 day tour. Bedroom was clean and comfortable with all the usual facilities. Although the roundabout outside the hotel could be noisy in some parts of the hotel, I spent ages just watching the traffic and the crazy chinese drivers and cyclists negotiating teir way around it. The cleanliness of the chinese city streets was highlighted when I saw a man with what was no more than a longhandled dustpan and brush sweeping the dual carriageway curbs at 7am. The food in the hotel was good.

This was our second hotel during a 21 day Wendy Wu tour. The hotel is on a busy roundabout and could be noisy on lower floors. The best rooms are high and on the front facing the City Wall and a park.

Our room (1929) was exceptionally large and was clean and well equipped. Others in our party did not feel so spoiled.
Breakfast was completely chaotic as the room was far too small for the number of guests in the hotel. Choice of food was reasonably good if you had the patience to wait for a table and queue for toast.

Most hotels we visited had an Internet connection in the bedrooms, either free or for a fee, but wi-fi for iPads tends to be unreliable and only available in the lobby. In this hotel it only appeared to work reliably in the evenings.
