It was very close to the Muslim Quarters, walking distance to shopping malls, the underground subway and bus stops. Most important Mei's mother went out of her way for us. She guided us many days and gave us tips. She even provided her cell phone for us to call her in case we got lost...which we did, plus she had... More

Chose this place based on reviews. Located close to Muslin Quarters, Mei was really responsive and helpful through emails. Her mum was also extremely helpful in giving us directions and showing us around the place. Really felt at home when I was staying there. Highly recommended. Located close to bus stops and metro station with easy access to Railway stations... More

I chose the Hq Guesthouse because we only had one night in Xian. I wanted to be close enough to walk back to our accommodations after exploring the Muslim night market. Hq met our expectations perfectly. Our guide, Bryan Bay, brought us there, he translated with Mama Mei. I am not sure what we would have done without Bryan as... More

Hi there Thanks very much for your kind review, we are glad you had a great time in Xian even though it was so short. I just wanted to make a quick mention about the language barrier.

This is the second time we stayed at the HQ apartment in two years, so we are very partial to this place and the people running it. Though we do agree with one of the previous reviewers about the wet bathroom- that it could be dangerous and that improvement could be made to provide a dry area in the bathroom-... More

We stayed at the Xi'an Apartments Guesthouse HQ, in a 2 bedroom apartment. We had read several good reviews and decided to take a break from small hotel rooms.

We stayed for a week in May and found this apartment to be basic, clean and well set up for guests (although the bathroom could do with a little renovation).
