“Good value hotel”
Reviewed 7 August 2010

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.

The rooms were old and the service average. Breakfast was £10 and so so. I am sure you can get much nicer rooms in Xian and better service for the price.

This is a very nice Chinese hotel. Similar to staying at a Hyatt here, but much cheaper of course. The staff was friendly and attentive. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed. The grounds are top-notch.

We arranged for a car and guide to show us around. Erma spoke very good English and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She showed us the Banpo Neolithic village (6,000 years old) and of course the Terra Cotta Soldiers and (souvenir) soldier factory. She even taught us a few Chinese characters and words along the way - very helpful.

The only negative about the hotel is the "Western" restaurant. It is very good but very expensive for the breakfast, lunch or dinner buffets. We had a dinner in the Chinese restaurant and it was reasonably priced and very good. We also had a buffet breakfast and lunch during our stay and they were top-tier, but way overpriced.

Again, the staff was very helpful and attentive in getting us maps, taxis, guides, etc.

We were surprised at how many things there are to see and do in Xi'an, and would have planned a longer stay had we known.

Good place to stay in Xi'an!

This hotel was a complete revelation, clean, spacious, 2 really good restaurants, We ordered from the a la carte menu for Breakfast and dinner and were pleased with every meal. The staff were very helpful and friendly even going to the shop to get me gum at one point - I find there is always a bit of a language issue in China, even in the larger hotels but patience and smiles always seem to work.

Our twin room was large, again very clean, the beds comfy and it was extremely reasonably priced - I think the hotel must have had a complete refurb since the earlier comments as there is nothing old about this hotel now, it was all shiny new and clean. You are only a 5 minute, 12 rmb cab ride from the main sites in the walled city.

The only reservation was the massage area which was on hard beds - not massage tables and was very expensive for China - other than that I would 100% recommend this hotel.
