“Bad Location..”
Reviewed 28 May 2010

Booked it on the internet not realising how far it was from Xian city( about 45 kms)..The rooms are sprawling, the shower cabins leak, there is no breakfast except for some basic stuff served to order..never stay here if you can help it! I don't know how Best western endorses such a place..

Reviewed 14 May 2010

Me and my husband have stayed in this hotel for 3 days (4-6 May 2010). I will start from the very beginning... First, no one of the taxi drivers know where the hotel is. It took us about half an hour standing with a "Lonely Planet" guide book opened at the inquire office at the railway station for a Chinese girl to come and ask whether we needed help. We finally got the name of the hotel written in Chinese and only after that we got a taxi there. Also need to tell you that it's about half an hour drive from the railway station. if you think that's a Best western hotel and everybody speaks English - you are completely wrong! There was only one lady who could speak something sounded like English, but the most fantastic experience was getting breakfast. First, we have discovered that breakfast is only served from 7 am til 9 am without reception informing you about it when you are checking in. So, we have missed it the first day. The second attempt was made the next day. We entered the restaurant the next day and saw the staff sitting at the main table eating their breakfast. At your appearance they all disappeared. A normal person will think that they all left to serve you but NO, they were hiding behind the corner finishing their breakfast! After spending about 10 minutes sitting at the table in an empty restaurant, a lady came to us asking what she could help us with. Apparently, we looked like we wanted a circus performance in this restaurant but we have only asked her for breakfast! The food was cold and disgusting. As no one speaks English, we were asked to sign the bill for something in Chinese which we refused as the breakfast was included into the room rate. They were coming knocking at the room twice asking to sign the bill but they didn't successed as none of us spoke Chinese. It all got sorted at the check out at the reception as it appeared to be just a formality and nobody was going to charge us extra. The other story is about payments: the announcement tells they accept everything - don't believe that! We tried AMEX, we tried my MasterCard from CitiBank and the only card that worked was Mastercard of my husband from RBS. So, if you decide to stay there you'd better have cash to pay for the room. To stay or not to stay - the choice is yours, but if you don't want to spoil your impression of the place I'd rather recommend you to choose something else in the city centre. By the way, bus # 238 goes there from the Bell Tower in the centre of Xian. Bus #201 runs from the train station to The Bell Tower. Have a nice stay if you still make a choice in favor of Best Western Hotel, Xian.
