This hotel has a main building, and then a separate wing, so watch out when you book! The two are only 100 feet away from each other. A cheap price probably means you will be staying in the "garden" wing, which is the older version. This is where I stayed, so I can only comment on those rooms.
First impression, the room is extremely spacious! It almost feels like a suite. TV works fine (and you get CNN), internet works fine too and the bed is soft (which does not happen a lot in China, so enjoy!). However, the bathroom is in a serious bad condition. Not dirty but really really worn out. So that is a very serious down for the room. The AC works fine, but it does not get outrageously cold. So if you like sleeping in a crazy cold room, you might want to reconsider. However, I stayed in hot July, and I was fine.
Otherwise, good restaurants (there is one in the wing and 2 in the main building). Service is irreprocheable. Location is ok (you will need a taxi or a bus to get to the city center). I walked the first day and it took me 2h to get to the Drum Tower!
The pool is on the small side but it is clean, and I cannot comment on the gym since it was under renovation.
All in all, good value for the price you will pay (I got the room for about $40/night), so it is a very good option while in Xi'an.
