“As close as you can get to "THE" Shangri-La”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Lovely, Serene, peaceful are just a few adjectives to describe this wonderful hotel. The welcoming lobby and the very helpful reception staff. Check-in was immediate to a very nice comfortable room. T.V. has a soothing music channel which was very easy to use with part english on the remote and speaker in bedroom and bath. Nice touch. Close to a mental massage.
The king bed was cozy with lots of pillows. Coffee/tea maker with supplies was a great treat. Nice cup of hot tea at bedtime and hot coffee upon awakening. Bath has all the little amenities that make the stay enjoyable. Soaking in the deep tub listening to the easy listening station almost puts one in a sleepy-time mood.
The large swimming pool was also relaxing with large glass windows. Breakfast was wonderful with East/West selections and several made-to-order stations. Servers were very busy refilling the coffee cups which is always appreciated without having to constantly look for servers.
Wonderful staff at this wonderful hotel. Would return again.

All in all an amazing stay. Friendly staff. Great vegetarian options at Shang Palace. Room was very clean, big, and comfortable. Many of the staff spoke good and clear English. Good value for money. Cabs are fairly easy to find.

I've stayed in many different Shangs all over China & the rest of Asia - this is the only one, in my memory, without in-room wifi! So not very convenient if your do not have an ethernet connection on your computer, or if you plan to work with your iPad or iPhone!

This is a great hotel after a day visiting the Terracotta Warriors. Very large rooms, very quiet, good restaurant, close to train station for pickup by tour guides. Certainly would recommend this when visiting the Warriors.

Hotel is dated but the staff is excellent and work hard to make sure the guests are well taken care of. The restaurant is good and the breakfast provide a lot of local flavor. The staff are attentive.

First impression chaotic , many visitors, our key didn't work so had to traipse back to reception to get it re done, no apology! But room very good , lovely beds, Chinese restaurant was very good, recommend it, breakfast again very busy but plentiful.
We were taken to the Tang Dynasty cultural entertainment theatre restaurant for a meal and dance and music show. The food was ok , bit canteen style, music and dancing excellent so worth trying. Obviously the Terracotta Army is a must but don't miss the city wall, very wide , have a stroll or bike ride on it.
Enjoy!

Room Tip: Our tour included deluxe room which was excellent.
