We were on a tour of china with Overseas Adventure Travel and overall the hotels were mediocre at best but this one was certainly a step up. For instance, the beds were significantly more comfortable and the cleanliness was about up to American standards. The rooms were roomy and the staff was helpful. As noted by the name the location near the bell tower is pretty good.

Given the fact that the location is right down town in Xi'an and close to nearly everything including all the city noises. Adding in that it was close to the tower that chimed every hour with a Loud 5 min electric recording prior to softly chiming the hour.
Our room was a small 2 room suite that had the added advantage of facing a school's play ground that also served as the meeting hall. There was a pre-holiday gathering with very loud amplified speakers that lasted well into the night.
The hotel was not that bad, had a few smallish elevators and only one that went to the under ground garage, so coming down from the upper floors meant waiting for an elevator to go to the lower garage or taking the rather steep and dimly lit stairs.
Service is ho hum, nothing great to write home about.
For some strange reason the A/C only worked in the den area and did not even have vents in the bedroom, so sleep was very warm and uncomfortable.
Our biggest gripe was the fact that no one was able to comprehend the meaning of Do Not Disturb.
After explaining in both English and Chinese that the house keeper entered our rooms after we posted the Do not disturb sign on the door handle and also turned on the light with the do not disturb, romoved items that they should not have touched (our food and water) moved things around, put my dirty clothes that lay in corner on floor, into my suit case with my clean clothes, unplugged my Ipad that I left on charge and moved it into another room.
That night as we prepared for sleep there was a loud knock on the door and my wife got up angry (we had the do not disturb signs on) to answer the door. A man asked if he could help us since we complianed to the front desk,and my wife just told him(in Chinese) "obviously not since you also do not seem to understand the meaning of DO NOT DISTURB! His mouth dropped open as my closed the door slowly.

Room Tip: If you can tolerate the noises of a city life, this hotel might be what you need

Room not well lit, no Internet facilities in room. I think the hotel was good value for money.Staff very friendly and helpful. Taxis ordered through hotel were much more expensive than if one got them just of the street.

This Hotel is really awful and overpriced, stay away! It is not at all Ramada up to standard. Later on we figured out that the Hotel is owned and operated independently, they only franchised the name from Ramada. It is disappointing that Ramada is doing such things. Although we had a suite the room was tiny and dark. Everything was old and not at all clean. The service was unfriendly, English skills very poor. We actually booked the Hotel. because it was located near to the centre and close to the underground station. However the underground is pretty useless for sightseeing and the location was also not very nice. Never stay at this Hotel! It was the worst we had in China.

The concierge was the only person which did a very good job and the only one with reasonable English skills. He organised us a perfect tour according to our individual needs for very good price.

ramada bell tower is situated 5 mins from bell tower and Muslim quarters which is the center of xian town. if you are visiting xian for business or pleasure this is a good choice , the hotel is very affordable and has a good ambiance. only negative is that they dont have wifi on all floor so you have to manage with lan cable

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms have wifi

Good value for money hotel on North Street just 400 m from Bell Tower.
Rooms were clean tidy, and cleaned every day.
Showers were good, as was bath.
I stayed 1223 which is at the front of the hotel so problem for me was constant traffic noise throughout the night which in conjunction with jetlag made for a disturbed night.
Not a problem for me ( because I was working, and had to be up early anyway) was the public tannoy clock which starts to chime every half hour from 0600-2400, if you want a more relaxing night ask for a room at the back, the view is not so good but youll get a better nights sleep.

Service was good, staff friendly, the food was good too, but I took off to the Muslim Quarter and eat on the street for about 5 USD a night.
Its not the best hotel in Xian but its low cost, centrally placed and has creature comforts like a gym etc.
