Hotel has been renamed: Gaosu Shenzhou Hotel. I've stayed in some of the finest hotels in the world, but for my trip to Xi'an I stayed where my volunteer organization booked the rooms. I was there for three weeks.
While the hotel rooms could use a bit of a renovation, never in my wildest dreams did I expect to enjoy my stay so much. My room looked out directly at the southeast corner of the City Wall, which was magnificent. Every single employee went out of their way to take care of whatever requests I had. Two of them even took me to various parks and other locations in the city. My room had an Internet connection (free), air conditioning, plenty of hot and cold water, bottled water delivered daily, terrific service, very comfortable big bed. The room was quite large, too.
The breakfast was beyond belief, as someone else described. The dinners were delicious. I found the location to be perfect. It was a very short walk (directly across the street) to the City Wall and into the center of the city. Yes, the neighborhood was not the best, but for me I loved it. So much street life, friendly people everywhere, smiling children, markets, etc. Very easy to get a taxi whenever necessary, and I never paid more than $1.00. Where in the world can that happen?
Besides everything I've already mentioned, would you believe that the room rate, including Internet and breakfast, was under $40/day?
I would absolutely stay again at this hotel.
