While to reservation staff was nice and the hotel was suitable, we felt ripped off by the guys working at the Concierge's desk when we left. We asked for a taxi to take us to the airport. Although the fare should have been 60 CNY the concierge working told the cab driver to charge us 120 CNY. I tried repeatedly... More

Located conveniently within earshot distance from the south gate, Ginwa plaza hotel is a clean and nice hotel but it has a 20 year old loot that is yelling to be renovated. I the other hand the price per room is very reasonable hat one can certainly able to overlook the details.

Recommended by my tour operator...it is a clean and tidy hotel, the lobby and reception areas make a good first impression. Reception, restaurant staff, bellhops and the concierge have good English. The location is directly across the road from the city wall, which is stunningly lit at night. There is a metro station about 500 metres to the right of... More

I stayed here with my tour group. When the bus pulled up to the entrance to the parking lot the guard wanted us to unload out luggage there while it was pouring rain. The walk to the actual hotel must have been at least 30 to 40 meters, uncovered. Our tour guide told him he was crazy and had the... More

Spent two nights here while touring with a group. Room was pleasant and since my room faced the city wall, had an excellent view, especially at night with the wall all lit up. Bathroom kind of small, but passable. Breakfast buffet was excellent with both Asian and Western foods, including a cook doing eggs to order. Since this was part... More

Very nice and clean rooms, beds extremely comfortable, the view of the ancient walls from the room was very nice. About its location, a word of advice. Moving around Xi'an by taxi can actually be a nightmare. Traffic jams are simply horrible, so, if you are going to visit the terracotta army, we strongly suggest you catch bus 608 right... More

The hotel is near subway (nanning men), bus stations (naning men), department stores, south city wall of xi'an (naning men) and popular scenery. It takes 10 mins to popular scenery by walk. So the location is not noisy. I live in the 19th floot. I can see the view of city wall. I suggest the hotel is best choose if... More
