Met by HQ apartment's driver at the airport (and also used him to drop us off at the train station too - so much easier).
Greeted at the door of the apartments by Judy who spoke excellent English as Mei was away. Also met Mei's parents, who couldn't have been nicer, even though they didn't speak English, Judy helped.
All communication prior to us arriving was fab & the apartments are in a fantastic location. Five minutes walk to the Muslim . As explained on their website, these are local apartments, so why anyone would complain about the shower being part of the bathroom & not separated is beyond me. This is how the people of Xian live!! We knew that when we booked. There was a local school next door which was a bit loud first thing, but that would only bother you if you left late. Most days you're up & out on tours so you wouldn't notice it.
Our children rated it excellent as there was hundreds of DVDs and free wifi in the apartment. Basic but perfectly adequate for our two day stay. Coffee & tea are provided too. We ate in the Muslim quarter some fantastic food (recommended by Judy).
Mei's mum, whilst speaking no English was fantastic. Allowed us to stow our suitcases in her apartment all day & even let us use her bathroom before we left for the train station that evening.
Oh, nearly forgot. The apartments supply a mobile phone free of charge for you to call Judy (or Meim I guess) if you're stuck, or need help. Great customer service. Thank you!
You can also do washing there, we were going to, but didn't need to in the end.
Excellent location, good, clean apartments, fantastic service. Recommended!
