King Dynasty Hotel
Ranked #226 of 2,616 Hotels in Xi'an
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Stayed here to visit Terracotta Warriors and walls of Xi'an. Poor hotel with tired surroundings and equally tired looking staff. Rooms noisy (road traffic) and towels rather grey. Food in restaurant unimaginative and service matching food.
Good location and access to walls very easy, traffic MAD!!
Limited or often non exist ant wifi.

I stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Wendy Wu tour. Stayed on the 22nd floor and had a brilliant view of Xi'an, especially the beautiful city wall. The room was an excellent size, lots of space and had all the amenities that you would need on a trip. The staff were friendly and polite and I had no problems whatsoever.

We stayed 2 nights here as part of a package tour group. This is a large hotel located a little way outside the West Gate and appears to be well used by tour groups. The lifts can be overwhelmed when tours arrive, especially if a couple of groups arrive at the same time, and the breakfast area can be very busy indeed (they did their best to set up extra tables one morning when there were several tour groups). While the rooms were pleasantly spacious, it's a pity that the “rules” apparently provide that there can be no cooling before the start of summer, so things can get a bit warm if you get a hot day in spring (as we did). There's a computer with internet connection in the room, which was convenient.

a very good hotel .. well .. kinda big hotel .. even I wasn't able to cover all places inside it during my stay .. with big rooms but the service is not as good as the place itself but still acceptable
food quality is good (choose all sea food you can find there)
the location is great and you can walk to alot of wonderful places on foot from there

Room Tip: choose rooms on higher floors (the street noise is not good) and choose the room on the street for...

This was my second hotel I stayed in whilst in China. Again I have fairly similar comments to my other reviewed hotels. My bathroom was clean although the room itself was slightly unclean. The carpet needed a good clean! Whilst being on a non smoking floor, I could still smell stale smoke. From the three hotels this hotel was particularly bad.

Breakfast provided a good choice or cereal, pastries and fruit with good service from staff in providing tea and coffee and clearing tables.

This hotel was the only hotel which provided free wi-fi, which was great for getting in contact with people from home.

If I were to return to Xi'an I would stay in a more centrally located hotel, as it wasn't near any sites of interest.

This is probably the best local Chinese hotel I've stayed in. It is rated a local 5-star, which is supposed to be an international 4-star standard.

Room was clean with new shower provisions topped up everyday. Room was big but with most local hotels, are not very brightly lit. I liked the room and that I could finally get CNN on their cable tv.

Food in the cafe was pretty decent. Service quality, as with most local establishments, is poor. You do need to manage your expectations when it comes to service quality in China. It's just not quite there yet.

WiFi is only available in the hotel lobby. Free wired internet is provided in all rooms. No subway yet but expect it right below in a few years time. I think that will then make this hotel more convenient. Hotel made the effort to list the bus numbers to take to tourist attractions, which is good. But they could take the additional step to have the same listing in English.

There are several eating establishments as well as a supermarket about 10min walk away, so that's good as well.
.
Overall I did enjoy my stay in this hotel and will keep it in mind for subsequent trips.

The hotel looked ok from the outside but not so impressive on the inside, the first night the lifts broke down and we were on the 18 floor so had to use the stairs and took the hotel ages to sort this out. The rooms were tatty and needing modernization. The breakfast room was not big enough and lacked in tables. Another hotel with cold breakfasts and very little choice. I ran a bath on one of the nights there only to find i had a bath of brown dirty water, this happened twice before giving up. The location of the hotel is not to bad you do have a supermarket close buy and a few shops. If you are looking for the internet it works if you are lucky only in reception but if you want a UK website forget it. Staff do not speak English so difficult to get yourself understood
