We were very pleased with our lodging at the Xi'an Green Forest Hotel. The location is excellent- just 1/2 block from the metro. The room was clean and very spacious.

We were pleased with the staff who were very helpful and could answer many questions about excursions and local attractions.

We would highly recommend renting a bicycle and riding along the upper perimeter of the city wall. You really get a flavor of life in a walled city. We also enjoyed seeing Banpo, the "birthplace" of Chinese civilization and the Xi'an Museum which gives a great overview of the different dynasties.

The Green Forest allows you to have a great place to stay while you are in town to see the terra cotta warriors and we had some of the best street food in China right across the street from the hotel! We would highly recommend this lodging to others.

This is an great hostel to stay in.. Staff was very helpful. Private room was clean and comfortable. Hostel was near the subway exit. free wifi was good in all areas. The Hostel is located in an apartment building and occupies a few floors in the building. reception is on the 4th floor. Hostel can arrange tours to terracotta soldiers as well. Place is walking distance to a supermarket which was convenient.

Initially booked for 2 nights but ended up staying for 4. We had a twin bed private room. Basic but clean and tastefully done. Very comfortable bed.

Staff was incredibly accomodating and was very helpful with bookings and directions.

Would have given 5 stars except for the Internet access which tend to be crawling at times.

Nevertheless.. Highly recommended!

The bar and terrace have a nice vibe, the bedding was clean and comfy, small lockers were provided, and the food was nice if a little overpriced. The staff spoke good English and were helpful if not friendly. The location is very close to the metro, though it is outside of the city walls.

However, the food could be a bit cheaper and better catered to vegetarians. The location is a bit out of town, so you need to catch a metro to see the big sights like The Bell Tower, Drum Tower, Muslim Quarter, etc.

Is is also pretty hard to find. It's in a large grey towerblock with a small light-up sign halfway up saying "Green Forest" on the Northern side. The entrance is next to the 'Giant' Bicycle shop, and there is another hotel on the lower floors too.

Green Forest hostels do provide you what you want for a nice ravel. Decent rooms, clean facilities and a good public space.
No matter if you're in Guilin, Yangshuo, Nanning, Chongqing or even Xian, Green Forest has established it's brand and I hope there will be more of those lovely hostels, ran by people who really know how to do, great job guys!

This hotel has large rooms and all the pros of a budget hotel. It's really close to the subway. Exit C at An Yu something station on line 2 (just after the line 1 interchange). It's great to stay here and be out of the hustle and bustle but still close by subway.

Our stay was just perfect. We can't say anything negative about this hostel. The rooms were nice and clean with a stylish design. The beds were comfy and we loved the rain shower. The staff spoke English very well. They were helpful and friendly. We especially liked the bar with its modern and tasteful design. Highly recommended.
