“2 nights in Xian to see the Warriors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Very good hotel and amenities. Fabulous spa treatment and loved steam room, sauna, jacozzi, pool. Liked the spin drier and heater to dry bathing costume.
Buffet breakfast and dinner offered good choice and quality. Unfortunately one meal was not hot enough. However the staff reacted very positively and the evening ended well. Carpet in the dining room needed vacuum cleaning.
Bedroom large clean and comfortable with handy night light.
All services, drivers and tours organised by the hotel were first class.
Penny, our guide to visit the Warriors, was excellent.

Stayed at the Shangri-La, Xian for two nights while I visited all the local sites, including the terra cotta warriors, City Wall, Great Mosque, Touch of Antiquities Museum, and the Pagoda and it's gift shop.

The hotel was one of the best I've ever stayed at. Extremely comfortable bed, free internet in the room, wonderful bathroom, all the first class amenities. The breakfast buffet was extensive - with breakfast food for all nationalities and tastes, and artfully displayed. My stay was arranged by General Tours, and so the buffet was complimentary.

Stayed October 2012, traveled solo

Great hotel in a cool city. Decent rooms, good breakfast, friendly staff and a real buzz in the lounge. Be warned, all chinese men seem to smoke! Not a problem for me but could be a problem for others as, although smoking is banned indoors, nobody takes any notice whatsoever..
Only one issue we had.. we visited the Thai restaurant after hearing good things about it.. TBH, was one of the worst Thai meals we have had.. truly awful.. maybe we visited on a bad evening..
Otherwise, all was up to the usual Shangri-La standard

Hotel looks dated and worn out. I stayed two nights here on business/pleasure. The bar area had a singer in there both nights and she was way too loud and we spent the evening shouting at each other to try and be heard and then just gave up.

Bedrooms very average and the corridors smelled of cigarette smoke.

This hotel is said to be the best in Xi'an. Rooms are modern and comfortable. Staff is friendly and wants to serve well. Bath amenities fine. Thai restaurant a welcome change from Chinese. Lobby bar area seems popular with a business crowd after work. A very satisfactory place to stay.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Took my 9 year old son on a long weekend trip to see the Terracotta army in October 2012. We stayed for two nights.

The staff absolutely bent over backwards to make our stay as pleasurable and as stress-free as possible. From knowing our names, to arranging taxis, to advising on restaurants, to giving my son extra fruit & sweets and to meeting his demanding requirements e.g. hot chocolate to be drunk with a chinese meal in the evening.

On our first evening, we struggled to find a taxi back from Xian to the hotel -- we waited 40 mins until my son negotiated (in his best english/mandarin) with a local tuk-tuk driver to take us the 25+ mins journey back. We remarked on this to the concierge on our return (he asked us how our evening went). Next morning, another member of staff apologised for the delay we have getting back (it was not the hotel's fault at all!) and said that our predicament had been discussed at the staff meeting that morning.

Upside: great hotel, awesome staff, good breakfast buffet, lamb BBQ + food generally; wonderful pool.

Downside: as others have mentioned, it's a bit removed from the main city (good and bad implications) - can be a pain to get back to the hotel at night.

This hotel has everything you want for a comfortable stay. The rooms are fantastic - very quiet and comfortable. There is a good choice of places to eat and drink too. We particularly enjoyed the Thai restaurant which I'm told is one of the best in China. Recommended
