This hotel is adjacent to the Bell Tower, which is the landmark marking the center of Xi'an, and within the city wall that surrounds downtown. It's also pretty much a quick jaunt across the underground walkway to the Muslim market. If you're taking the airport bus in, the terminus at Melody Hotel is just a five minute or less walk down the same side of the street.
The hotel breakfast buffet is 60RMB (~10USD) and includes some traditional items like porridges with condiments (ok), egg station (ok), and western options such as cereal (ok), and breads (terrible). Another perhaps better option is the bustling breakfast stalls on the street next to the Melody Hotel where they have stuffed buns and soy milk (with an english menu you can point at), and some local fried breads (I highly suggest trying them but perhaps passing on the lettuce they add in). McDonalds and Starbucks are also across the street from the hotel.
Room was clean, beds and towels ok. Bathroom left a bit to be desired so I wore flip flops. Did not have a problem with the AC as others have mentioned despite being there in July. Housekeeping tends to open the window, so check that they're closed if you're having issues. Two bottles of boutique branded water are 10RMB/piece but there are two free bottles in the fridge and they are restocked daily. Free internet is a little spotty, rooms have ethernet access and the lobby has wifi.
