Ibis had sold this hotel to a local company and changed its name to Chenggong International hotel. The hardware is still there except for the change in management. We all know too well about the managerial skill of Mainlanders. It is still a good deal before things in the room fall apart. I would stay in this hotel any time in the next 6 months or so.
We wee booked here for 3 nights in august. We stayed the first night as we arrived late. The room was terrible. There was an awful smell of smoke, the bed was wrecked. Hand prints on the walls. The bathroom looking like it was robbed from an airplane. The floor was squeaky and the halls were filthy too. We were collected very early the following morning for a tour but after we returned we checked out within 10 minutes and moved to a better hotel. The staff wee friendly and did give us a full refund for the remaining two nights and apologised to us. It was such a pity that the hotel was so bas as it is in a good location. That unfortunately, is probably the best comment I have about this property. I know travelling on a budget you may need to put up with some "okay" hotels but this was just too bad.
As the trip was budget concious, will always be hit and miss when choosing a budget hotel. For three nights we paid £60 pounds. Our planned trips meant an early start so we didn't go for breakfast option. Restaurants next door and the city wall 5 minute walk, just outside the wall a good selection of shops, if you needed anything.
Spent 4 nights at Chenggong International Hotel. Booked a deluxe single room. Good-sized room with comfortable bed. Small but clean bathroom with all the usual amenities, good hot water and water pressure. Room was very clean and well maintained during my stay. View from back of hotel is an old apartment complex, kind of interesting. Breakfast is included with the room and it's a good selection of noodles, eggs, vegetables and breads. Make sure to get your breakfast ticket before going to the buffet. Good location near East Gate of Xi'an Wall and nearby is a charming park; the Xi'an Wall Ring Park. Take a stroll through the park in the morning to see locals practice tai-chi, sing opera, dance and just enjoy the park with family and friends. It is possible to walk to Drum Tower/Bell Tower from hotel, but bus is recommended. Hotel has a handy guide for bus/subway in Xi'an and it's very affordable. Cash is accepted on buses so no need for a card. Price is currently 2 RMB. Some restaurants and convenience store are located within walking distance of the hotel. Staff was extremely helpful and also arranged car to Xi'an North Train Station for return to Beijing. Will recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to Xi'an and definitely stay again should I return.
I liked this hotel as it was conveniently located right inside the south city wall, so it was easy to wander through the gates into the new town There are bus stops just outside if you wish to use public transport plus a very handy budget restaurant where excellent food is served by friendly smiling staff. Just behind the walls is a lovely park which stretches most of the length of these, in which you can just relax in the shade and watch others exercise or dance in the evening. The hotel itself is clean, fairly quiet with really helpful and pleasant staff.

Definitely a bus. It is a straight road for the train station. Call hotel for which bus to catch, from memory there are 3. Taxis take you the LONG ROUTE and are rude. Bus fare is equivalent to 20p, taxi£10.
