--- Rooms ---
Nothing major to complain about. Expect standard 4 star quality rooms that are clean and comfortable. In some respects they are organised in a slightly impractical way, especially concerning the lamps for which it is difficult to determine by which switch they are triggered. Furthermore for getting to your room, you have to take the elevator to the 4th floor, then walk to another elevator in order to get to your room. No Wi-Fi in the rooms, some international TV channels (CNN, if I recall correctly).
--- Restaurant ---
The breakfast buffet is average, we had better during our stay in China. Especially the Chinese dishes are nothing to rave about, the coffee is okay though. We ordered Chinese dishes for in-room dining once and they turned out to be delicious.
--- Location ---
The major downside of this hotel is its location. It's already not so much a problem, if you know about the subway station located right next to it, but which the staff did not tell us about, nor was it indicated on the city map provided by the hotel! Beware that in Xi'an it is notoriously difficult to get a taxi, on a Saturday evening we tried getting one for two hours before we could finally get a ride home. The hotel offers you to call a taxi, but on the second day they tried to talk us into taking the "hotel car" instead, which charges 80 yuan for a ride to the city center. The same distance with an official cab costs well below 20 yuan. I'm not particularly fond of getting ripped off by my hotel. My recommendation is to take the metro, which is at times rather crowded but fast, cheap and easy to figure out.
--- Convenience ---
The lobby Wi-Fi is slow and jumpy, providing not the best surfing experience. Sometimes the connection dropped or I couldn't connect at all. Reception staff were rather cold, some might even say unfriendly (especially with our Chinese guide). Their English was sometimes not great either. The lady from the room service turned out to be very friendly however, when she could not understand my order on the phone, she came to my room with a menu.
