“Beautiful hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Stayed here for one night on vacation. The property is stunning. Really beautiful. Wonderfully attentive staff. The spa facilities are really lovely and the fitness club/pool is wonderful. The only downside is that it is a little far from downtown, so being able to walk to things is a little bit more of a challenge (and traffic around the hotel can be a bear). The breakfast buffet was the best one we had on our 5-star trip to China!

I stayed here for one night in October. The hotel is in the new section of Xian and is a standared decent quality Shangri-la property. My room was average size with a standard set up. The restaurant was nice and the breakfast was better than average wiht freshly made croisants being served by the chef which was a nice touch. Otherwise nothing special about this property. I have no complaints but overall the hotel lacks an overall warmth that would make one want to return.

Located in the heart of this city of 23 million people, the hotel is highly recommended. Although English is spoken by some of the staff not all actual;ly understand.
Always make sure you have a tour guide or if you venture out on your own have your destination written down in Mandarin by the conciege.

Room Tip: Do not worry about a view as you cannot see out of the windows as they are covered in sand!

I stayed at the Xian Shangri-La on work for two nights recently. The service levels were generally very good and the staff were knowledgeable and helpful. The airport pickup and drop off worked like a charm. Food is good, certainly nothing to complain about. Overall, it was a good experience.

The Shangri-La is an excellent, Western-style hotel, well-located in Xi'an. Excellent base from which to see the terra cotta warriors. Great breakfast buffet - same restaurant also serves a wonderful buffet for dinner, offering both Chinese and Western fare. Very good staff - perhaps not quite up to the Peninsula, but very good.

I stayed at the hotel for two nights while in Xian on business.

I arranged airport pickup service, and when I arrived at the hotel a staff member met me and directed me to my room, and completed the check in service at the room itself. As I had been living on airplane food for the day, it was a welcome surprise to find a bowl of fresh fruit waiting for me in my room!

The room itself was clean and comfortable. A separate bathtub and shower were available.

I used the gym once, and it was a really nice facility.

The buffet breakfast included a good selection of food. I also had lunch once at the dim sum buffet and it was very good value.

I would stay here again if travelling to Xian.

Room Tip: I had a corner room- although I faced away from the beautiful gardens, this wasn't a big problem...
