If you are visiting Xi'an specifically to see the Terracotta Warriors site, complete the visit by staying at Clarence Gou's Warrior apartments. This is not a 5 star hotel. Take it for what it is: customized apartments near the Muslim Street, set up as a themed B&B residence.
The location is great for visiting the excellent food and shopping market. The apartments are clean, a little musty when the windows aren't opened but jam packed with Terracotta Warriors and artifacts in every room (modestly, they face backwards in the bathroom).
Clarence picked us up at the airport, provided breakfast foods and snacks at a reasonable cost and was our day's tour guide out to a Taoist temple, a visit to the hill folk and of course the Terracotta Warrior site. Excellent day trip, rustic accommodations and terrific service and attention to detail. You can do laundry too if you have been traveling for a while.
There is wifi although it was a bit hit or miss. Hit one day, miss the next.
Buy his book, it is excellent. Ask questions, he is very knowledgeable. Enjoy a different experience. Don't miss the Muslim market.
Thank you again, Clarence!
