“Great location, good price”
Reviewed June 1, 2007

Stayed one night in May 2007 at Wen Yuan Hotel in Xi'an.
It has an excellent location, right in the Bell and Drum Towers square.
We got a very spacious room with two big individual beds. The hotel was quiet and a good choice for the price, as we payed 50 USD / room/night, but there are also rooms with 35 USD/night.
Room and bathroom were clean.
We didn't try the breakfast, but it was included in the room price.
Reception staff speak very little English and will understand only basic phrases.
I would recommend this hotel for the good location it has and the good price.

We stayed for just three days in Xi'an and thus just two night in the Wen Yuan hotel.

We had a translator with us, so we had no problems with checking in, but the English was poor. The rooms were quite okay, certainly for the rates they were charging.

The hotel is located between the Drum and the Belltower, and is right next to the muslim street, so you are right between some of the attractions of Xi'an.

If you want to get a good diner, than you should go to the restaurant of the hotel, but keep in mind that although they advertise with the possibilities of a Western breakfast, is this not available during the offseason.

The only thing negative thing we encountered was that upon checkout, the staff promised to get our baggage and arrange a taxi. Infact, they couldn't arrange a taxi because there were no taxi's available. They never told us so, and as we had to catch a train we took our own baggage from the baggage room (never saw anybody, I could walk right in it) and walked towards the curb. All of a sudden one of the staff started "helping" us finding a cab. When some Chinese girl stole our cab, he suddenly slammed the door of the cab shut, and told us we had to wait!!! Luckely, our translator managed to get another one with the help of some locals and we were off. But this checkout "service" almost caused us to miss our train!

I stayed at this facility in mid-May and had a mixed experience. Strong points: good sized room for the money, decent and clean facilities, great location especially if you are interested in the Muslim Quarter which I cannot say enough good things about. There was a basic failure to communicate. I would suggest that unless you or one of your party has at least passable Mandarin you should avoid this hotel. One clerk was quite good, but when she was not available, communication was difficult. I had a ten minute conversation just trying to find out if I needed to reconfirm my plane tickets. Staff was quite knowledgable when translation was available. A former student of mine from Singapore said they have an expression when languages can't be bridged...like a duck trying to talk to a chicken.
