“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

This hotel is great value for money and is ideally situated. We arrived late at night and the taxi driver did have trouble finding the place although we did have the name and address written in Chinese. We had booked a standard room however as they were fully booked we were upgraded to a suite, which we did not complain about. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful with sufficent English to make communication easy. During our stay my husband celebrated his birthday and the hotel sent a birthday cake to our room which was a very nice gesture. We did not realise that Renmin Square was an enclosed area containing two other hotels (Sofitel & Grand Mecure) and associated restaurants. This was a big bonus as the Mecure on Renmin, which is the poor cousin of the other two, is siutated further back in the complex and was very quiet with no traffic noise.

We have stayed for 3 nights and got an upgrade to a deluxe suite. The beds are very comfortable. The bathroom is equipped with more than expected amenities. The reception staff is very friendly. The breakfast buffet is fine and also here they have very nice staff. Public bus stops near the hotel and the hotel is within walking distance of some shopping malls and the belltower.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the frontside of the building (courtyard) because of the traffic.

Room was fine, but average. No issues with it whatsoever. We were endlessly amused by the concierge, who helped up booking a private car for the Terracotta Warriors. They also booked overnight train tickets to Beijing...not easy to do from outside the country in the time period specified. One complaint is that it seems like they have a difficult time calling taxis between 5-8 pm, though that might be a general truth i the city of Xi'an. A bit far to walk anywhere, but this is a sprawling city!

i was booked in mercure (not to be confused with grand mercure) at the renmin square. i would say it was a memorable experience. the rooms were very spacious and nicely set. the room service was remarkable

i would like to mention about one bell boy, Andy. he was exceptional and very helpful. he could speak pretty good english, better than the receptionist atleast. so it was easier to get some information out of it.

Room Tip: take the deluxe rooms with 2 separate beds if you are staying more than 1 per room its much better t...

I stayed here for one night, booked on company rate

I had a late evening flight which was delayed. Called the hotel and they said will keep my reserved room; even told me they would upgrade me free to suite. Upon arrival 1:30am the check-in was quick and efficient.

Room was very spacious and OK. Sleeping quality of the bed Soft (I liked). Shower/bath-combination had powerful water supply; all amenities available. Internet fasts. Breakfast very wide assorted Westerner choice and Chinese choice. TV on suite and bedroom, but did not watch since was late arrive and wanted to go sleep on arrival.

This hotel actually is very well located in the city center, close to Bell towers. It is part of bigger complex with other hotels same group “Sofitel” and “Grand Mercure”. Stayed here 4 years ago in Sofitel. Would choose Mercure next time again… you can make use of all the facilities offered also to Sofitel and Grand Mercure guests; you only have to walk a little bit.

The hotel is located in a luxury hotel zone. Like many hotels in China, has carpet in the room. The bathroom has glass walls, and it has courtains to provide some privacy but you can see the bathroom light from the room anyway.The shower is fixed, there aren't toiletries, and there's a useful cord to hang wet clothes. Our room was quite dark and had a safe box, minibar that worked properly (very useful during summer in Xi'an!). Our room wasn't cleaned during the three days we stayed there. This was not a big inconvenient since we spent the day outside but may become so for longer stays. The plugs, as in almost all hotels in China, are located in inconvenient places. Cleaning is pretty good. The reception staff speak English. Is a bit far but we made good walks everywhere. A big plus is that the Mercure guests can use the pool at the Hotel Sofitel, located right next door. In short, the value for money is very good, since the prices are cheap, but do not expect any luxury.

I stayed 3 nights with 3 friends. we got the extra bed free of charge which is great. the cost per person per night between 3 of us was only around £10. very cheap!

the room is really big, its got comfortable bed, very firm and good to sleep on. there was only 1 very soft pillow on the bed, but asking for extra pillow was no problem.

The bathroom was clean, had 2 showers, one stand alone and one was over the bath tub. There was a bad sewage smell coming from the drains every time the shower is used.

The location of the hotel was good, walking distance to the bell tower area.

The restaurants associated with the hotel is actually located in Sofitel next door. the food was quite nice but slightly pricey.

The hotel staff was helpful in booking taxi's and shows for us. We wanted to go watch traditional Tang dynasty show with dumpling feast. the hotel confirmed the booking, but when we got to the show, the staff there said we could not have the dumpling feast as it required 24 hour prior booking. the hotel staff never informed us of that. which was a disappointment for me.

catching a taxi into town from hotel was tough, as there seem to be a shortage of taxi's in Xi'an. the hotel staff can only get a taxi for us if the taxi had dropped somebody off at the hotel. so sometimes we had to wait for over half an hour for a taxi.

The hotel had no problem getting us taxi to go to Terracotta warriors and to the airport. We had to book half a day or day before with the hotel.
