This hotel is simply average yet I have no complaints. Although a bit of a walk from the train station or the City Walls, this hotel places you in an area where you can to get most of the City highlights with a brief ride in a taxi or tuk-tuk. The Mercure is part of an entire complex of hotels making the location secure and seemingly quiet on the inside, but unfortunately that is where the benefit stops. This hotel offers nothing in the way of amenities and to access the spa, a swimming pool, a bar or restaurant you'll need to visit one of the other hotels in the complex. I will say that although the bed was just fine, the pillows were the most comfortable pillows I have ever had while on the road. The breakfast buffet is standard and I had no difficulties getting my tea refilled or the attention of the wait-staff.
Most people visit Xi'an to see the Terra Cotta Warriors. The warriors are located quite a distance out of town and my recommendation is to either sign up for a tour or do as I did, and hire a driver for the day. It was cheap ($40/day), door-to-door service and saved tons of time instead of riding the bus or being lumped with a group of folks. The warriors were amazing!
