This hotel used to be the top hotel in Xi'an 15 years ago, but it continues to go down hill. As long as the prices are low - it is worth staying at. If the prices are above $120 USD per night - there are better hotels to stay at than this one.
I stayed in the executive suite and check-in took a while - as did check out. They still use the Chinese way of checking everything in the room and making you wait before they allow you to leave. They have obviously not learned from the other western hotel chains how to speed up the process for those that have to make flights and assume check out will be "normal procedure."
The executive suite is from the 90's. The carpet is all new, which is good, but the furniture, bathtub, bed lamps, etc - are from another era. -again - no problem, as long as the price reflects the accommodations.
Internet is free and is relatively fast for China. I was happy with the Internet service - which is the most important for me.
You are also in the middle of everything the city has to offer. Location can not be beat.
If you need to check in early because of an early arrive of a flight, this hotel is also very accommodating.
