“this hotel has changed it's name - now Merlinhood !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

The hotel is in a really great position - right in the middle of everything, very close to Drum Tower and Muslim streets, but it is off the main road down a short 'lane' so is quiet. Perfect location really. The rooms are big, if a little worn, but the bed was comfy and the daily cleaning was really good. Food at breakfast is good - plenty of variety and fresh - but do get there early as although they say it runs until 10 I went after 9 one day and there wasn't much left ! The tour desk is very helpful and there is usually someone at reception who speaks English and is willing to translate for you and help you out in organising things. All in all a great spot to stay in Xian.

Strategically located in the centre of the city if Xian. Near Shop, Macdonalds, Park, Shopping, Pubs, Restaurants all in walking distance.
Get a room overlooking the breakfast area. Its like an Italian Forum. Rooms are clean and quite.
ATM on the lobby is very convenient.
The staff may get your Laundry delayed. Make sure you double check the time. I think its a communication thing in English.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the breakfast area

We were warned by tour company that this hotel was not great but really it was O.K. EXCEPT "NO SMOKING" is a joke when ashtrays are provided everywhere and the locals certainly do not observe signs plus also smoke in rooms on no smoking floors.
Hotel position was great and Xian generally was a pleasant city. The rooms were large and well appointed also quiet. Overall this hotel was better than some we stayed in that were part of well know international groups.

Good size rooms, clean, with friendly helpful staff, and much fun trying to talk to each other, with our little Chinese, and their little English ! Near to the lively center of Xi'an, with the beautiful Bell Tower, and the Drum Tower. The night markets are brilliant, and very good value. The square had people dancing most evenings, and the fountain displays were lovely.
The only drawback, is if you are in a front facing room - then you will need ear plugs! so get a side room if you can.
Beds, as ever in China, are rock hard but you get used to it.

Large well appointed rooms very clean. Staff were very friendly & helpful with limited English - but they always seemed to have someone on duty whether at front desk or restaurant who could speak enough English to get by. We had buffet style dinner and breakfast at hotel. A very large excellent selection with a huge variety to serve all cultures and tastebuds!!! Maybe the non-smoking message is getting through as we had a room which was obviously smoke free. How they achieved that I do not know as other patrons on the floor were puffing away under non-smoking signs!!! This is a great location as the Bell Tower & Drum Tower are a short walk away and the Muslim quarter seems to surround the hotel on 3 sides & of course haps of other shops. The only downside is there was no mini bar fridge or safe. Recommend

This hotel was very clean and breakfast was excellent with plenty of variety. The hotel was located in a central shopping district, its entrance was down a lane way off the main drag with
department stores next door. There was no traffic noise heard in room.

There were no safes in room but safety deposit boxes were available at reception. The biggest
drawback for this hotel was lack of English spoken by staff.

I would definately stay here again if I returned to Xian.

Room Tip: I stayed in a Standard room & could not fault it.

Good location, bit hard to find at first since it's tucked in a small lane off the main street. We were given rooms in the second building across the road. The rooms were big and included many extras ie. robes, slippers etc. The building which was 10+ floors only had one lift so this was very annoying especially when we had to wait for quite some time with lots of luggage. Most of the time we couldn't even all fit in the lift together. Staff could've been a bit more helpful and very few of them spoke English. Also prepare for hard beds!
