Tang Dynasty Art Garden Hotel

Reviewed September 29, 2013

My father & myself love this hotel! This is 1 of the best hotels which I ever have stayed in! Stepping into the hotel, I almost thought that I have travelled back >1500 years back in time to the Tang dynasty!
The architecture is a replica of Tang dynasty architecture. The hotel staff are all attired in Tang dynasty costumes. The hotel staff greet all the guests & are polite & helpful. The hotel has an inhouse Chinese orchestra troupe. 4 female musicians , dressed elegantly in Tang dynasty costumes, perform evergreen Chinese melodies on traditional Chinese musical instruments including 笛子,二胡,古筝! I was so delighted when the troupe played a song composed by Singaporean musician---城里的月光!The interior of the hotel is tastefully furnished in Chinoiserie style. Walking through the garden in the hotel is a relaxing experience as one can gaze at the many koi fish swimming in the pond. I was impressed that a computer was installed in every single guestroom in the hotel & Wifi was free! Definitely much better than some chains of 5 star hotel who charge extra fees for WIFI service.There was a lot of variety at the breakfast buffet table. From my observation, Caucasian tourists love the complimentary coffeebrewing service & settle for the usual bread . On the other hand, Asian tourists will eat the porridge, noodles & the many cooked vegetables & meat dishes offered at the buffet table. During my 4 night stay at the hotel, we sampled their dinner twice. The dishes on the menu were inspired by the imperial banquets which had graced dining halls in palaces in previous dynasties. After all, Xian was the capital of 13 Chinese dynasties!My father & myself love the steamed fish with fruits & the nutritious soup! I was so glad that I stayed in the hotel---5 star service, 5 star rooms in a palatial setting!

We had a very good experience at this hotel. It is in a beautiful place, right under the Pagoda, in a nice Park. The hotel inner gardens are beautiful. Rooms are good, with a local touch. Do not expect a Sheraton or Hilton, but yes a lovely hotel.
I would stay there again.

we stayed at this lovely hotel for three nights and WOW what a great hotel and a great value for money. the rooms were very artistic and authentic as very clean, staff was very helpful spoke average english and their breakfast spread was great.they have yummy custard dumplings.
behind the hotel was another pleasant surprise as there was a souvenir night market you could stroll at night and excercise your bargain skills , as try not to miss the great music fountain show daily just outside the hotel to your left. we really enjoyed everything about this hotel and enjoyed exploring it and the area around it. the wild goose pagoda view was an added value to this spectacular hotel as it is a few meters away and you can see it from hotel grounds.
do not stay anywhere else while in Xian you won't regret it.

Room Tip: all rooms are great

Built like an Imperial palace around 3 courtyards and single story. The courtyard gardens and water features are incredible. Good sized rooms with AC and WiFi. Interesting bathroom with wooden tub! Located outside the City Wall, but there is frequent bus service just around the corner - just do not plan on taxi out of the city to the hotel, they will try to rip you off..
The staff in general speak no English, this s a Chinese hotel, but they still manage to help - they will run off to find an English speaker. The hotel organized a car to take us to the Terracotta Warriors, where we found an authorized guide who spoke good English - free!!
Just outside the hotel is the Great Wild Goose Pagoda - worth a look as is the playing fountains in the 500 meter long water feature in front of the hotel.

Previously an art gallery, this expansive property is designed around the traditional Chinese courtyard homes of yesteryear. Most rooms overlook large, open garden areas with water feature design. Very therapeutic after a long day out sightseeing in this fascinating city. Walking distance to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, one of the major attractions here. There is also Asia's largest musical water fountain adjacent to the pagoda, on the other side of the hotel. Worth seeing (nightly at 9pm).

This hotel has a lovely courtyard area with many fountains, statues and plentiful seating areas. It is quite beautiful in that sense. It is also situated right next to the Big Goose Pagoda and it's surrounding park. You will be within walking distance to the water fountain show, the pagoda, a few small parks and lots of tourist-style shopping places. We enjoyed this about the hotel. We easily spent the day roaming around the ground, eating popsicles, popping into shops, and food places. The history museum is also near. Also, if you are interested in seeing the Terracotta Warriors, you can take city bus #5 which picks up across the street from the hotel. Ride it all the way to the last stop and you will be at the bus station where many buses go to the excavation site. Although the location is great, I gave this hotel 3 stars because I thought the room was dusty and dirty. Not terribly dirty, but dirty enough to notice (if that makes sense). There were also tiny fruit flies and mosquitoes in our room. And although the staff were extremely attentive, it was not always easy to communicate with them clearly.

The hotel location is great for evenings and sight-seeing. The gardens are very beautiful and the rooms have lots of character and a nice outdoor sitting area through french doors. The bathroom was small and a bit run-down .Water ran from the shower into the rest of the bathroom, rather than the shower drain due to the floor sloping the wrong way. Breakfast was OK - best thing is proper espresso coffee. Also throughout the night there was distinctive "cracking" sound. Staff do not speak english but were very pleasant.
