We stayed for four days in May 2013. The Mercure chain is average in England, but this hotel was something special. We weren't expecting anything as good as this. It is a hotel complex, so although the Mercure hasn't got its own pool, you are able to use the full facilities at the nearby (30 seconds walk) Sofitel. It was quite luxurious, with a beautiful bedroom, very good facilities in the bedroom/ bathroom, excellent choice at breakfast (western and Asian) and very attentive staff. My partner had been cycling and stayed a night the week before and the hotel had let him store some bags until we returned. We ate at the Sofitel and although the 'Grand Buffet' wasn't cheap, it was well worth it with full choices, soft drinks, fantastic choice of shellfish, sushi, salmon, meats and puddings, tea and coffee - a real treat. Particular mention should be for the doorstaff who spoke excellent English (better than the reception staff) and were very helpful and knowledgeable.
We booked two trips - terracotta warriors (which was fine) and Xian city (waste of time and could have done it much cheaper and better ourselves). We found it hard to get around Xian as taxis wouldn't stop for us and pedicabs/ rickshaws looked risky given the horrendous traffic problems . It is probably best to prearrange taxis through the helpful doormen and walk (we walked a lot!)
