“Quiet location in a bustling city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

One of three hotels in the same compound, this is the lowest cost offering. I do not know why you would choose one of the others since they all share the same facilities. This building is a refurbished Communist Party hotel and it shows in the interesting architecture and decor. Rooms were clean and up-to-date and the compound was very very quiet and peaceful. The staff was helpful with recommendations on dining and outing options. Restaurants and bars were all located in the other hotel buildings in the compound meaning a bit of a walk for breakfast or dinner but not a big deal at all. The compound location is out a bit from the tourist sites within Xi'an but we both walked and took cabs without any problems.

We did have a negative experience in the buffet restaurant ordering off of the a la carte menu when my vegetarian wife ordered the specifically labeled *vegetarian* Xi'an style noodles and they came with minced pork. Noticed about 3 bites in! She was understandably upset but the management handled the situation very professionally. The restaurant manager took care of the problem immediately and there was a phone message from the food and beverage manager for all three hotels on our phone when we got back to our room. He followed up with us personally the next day to ensure the issue was resolved to our satisfaction. The screw-up was basic and should not have happened at such a high-end establishment but the manager owned up to the issue and addressed it head-on. I travel quite a bit for business and I can say I was very impressed with the professionalism exhibited by the Singaporean F&B manager. We would not (and did not) hesitate to go back.

Overall very good quality and value for money in Xi'an. Would definitely stay here again.

The Mercure is one of three Accor properties sharing this Renmin Square locating inside the Walls of the City. The Mercure, is the lowest cost of the three- the others bieng the Sofitel and Grand Mercure, but shared facilities including dining and business center were available at the Sofitel property.
The Reception staff and conceirge were more than helpful in helping me with translations for taxi's and giving me a realistic idea of transportation costs to various spots.

The room was clean, plenty large, and had everything needed to make a comfortable stay.

My main reason for visiting was to see the Terracotta Warriors and I wasn't disappointed. I also fully enjoyed visits to the Muslim Market, and ad evening at the Big Goose Pagoda. Actually my favorite of the 3 cities I visited in China on this trip.

This is hotel is good with a great location. In the same complex you also find Sofitel and Grand Mercure hotels. Due to this, there is no restaurant at the hotel, if you want to eat, you must go to Sofitel or order the room service. The breakfast is the unique service provided by the hotel, which is complete (Chinese and Ocidental foods).

The Executive room I´ve choose, is very spacious with working area, TV area and the beds well distributed. As I´ve asked one extra bed, there was a lot of space for it. The regular and extra beds are very conforatable and you can relax after a busy day.

The good point is the bathroom that have shower and bathtub with another shower separeted (I hate take a shower in a bathtub). The hotel is very clean and the staff very polite, speaking English very understandable.

In the area you can´t find easy reastaurants or taxis, so you should ask one at the hotel to drive you to the restaurant.

Room Tip: If you can, choose the Executive room.

In the middle with the Sofitel one side and the Grand Mercure on the other in Remnin Square. Peaceful and safe with great reception staff who were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast here was fantastic once again able to fill up and keep going most of the day. The hotel is close to a large Shopping Mall around the corner and several other shops although a good 20 min walk from the Muslim Quarter. We had a lovely room although on the ground floor was peaceful and clean and would recommend this place to anyone as you are able to access the facilities of the Sofitel across the road which includes a Business Centre, Resteraunts and Cafe.

We recently stayed at the mecure for one night as we wanted to do a stop over and see the terracotta warriors.
The hotel is located in the renmin square with several other hotels, which is quite handy as we popped over to one of the bars and restaurants for dinner.
The hotel staff were really helpful and spoke good English, taxis to the terracotta are cheap and take approx 1 hour to get too, but the hotel can get you a taxis if you ask.
On a free day we explored the city walls on foot and came across lots of street markets all walk able distance from the hotel. Overall a very nice stay and would recommend if your on a stop over.

We flew in late from Beijing and arrived at the Mercure, Xian around 11pm. The reception staff were very friendly and considerate. They organised a private tour of the Terracotta Army museum for us for 8am the next day !!!
The rooms are clean and modern.
Very good value for money.
Hotel is around 10 mins from central Xian.

My husband and I went to Xi'an for a long weekend with our 5 month old daughter. The hotel was excellent to us. All staff were very friendly and professional and helped us every chance they could, for example with an extra hand while we cared for the baby or bringing us things from the buffet at breakfast when we had the baby in our arms. They also provided, for free, a beautiful wooden baby crib with sheets and blankets. It was very safe and good quality. Our baby slept really well, which was a relief! When we went to the Cantonese restaurant in the hotel complex late when we got in, they gave us a baby seat and 3 staff helped entertain the baby while we ate. What service!

Room Tip: Ask for a baby cot, they are very nice and safe.
