We booked a standard king room for 2 nights that cost around 750CNY, it was located on the 4th and highest floor and there are no elevators. The staff were english speaking (mostly) and they have a lot of group tours available which they might try to get you to sign up for. These are expensive, i went on our own and found it far cheaper than what they offered. There is a convenience store nearby so its pretty easy to stock up on water and snacks. The rooms themselves were okay, with peeling wallpaper and rock hard beds with thin pillows, but what do you expect for this price eh? The location is walking distance to the Metro which gives you a faster access to the Muslim Quarters and drum tower.
I stayed in a private room with a private bathroom at the Hantang House and I really enjoyed it. For the price, the location in the city center was fantastic, the room was good, and the people were nice. The hostel is right in the middle of the action within the city walls. It is a perfect base for exploring Xi'an. I found the room to be comfortable and I had no trouble sleeping. When I checked in, they offered me a room on a lower floor or a higher floor. I chose the higher floor for the view (worth it!) and thinking it would be quieter (it was!) but it was a bit of a climb since there was no elevator. The bathroom worked. Keep in mind the price; you are not getting luxury but it is safe and comfortable. I also appreciated the service offered by the hotel. Someone met me (and my heavy bag) at the train station and escorted me to the hotel. The woman who checked me in was very kind and everyone I encountered in the cafe on the ground floor was very helpful. One of the women even connected me with another solo traveler staying in the hostel to tour around together. I highly recommend the Hantang House!…
The welcome could not be warmer - good Englsih speaking staff cares about everything from map, sights explanation to bus routes in town. Despite the low rates rooms are large, beds are comfortable and bathrooms are great and clean. Breakfast is hearty - but does not include coffee or tea (buy separate) Wifi works (with the usual restrictions) well, and drinking water is provided on each floor. Take the underground to Zhonglou station (exit north-east) and walk for less than 10 minutes from there.
We stayed here as a family of 4 and were disappointed with Hantang House. The room itself was very poor- wallpaper peeling off, broken furniture in the bathroom, broken toilet seat, shower that sent water all over the floor outside the cubicle. Beds were rock hard and air con was ineffective. However it is pretty cheap so you can probably get over that. We found the attitude of the staff more of an issue. Multiple times they tried to push their Terracotta Army tour on us, despite us repeatedly saying we didn’t want to spend a full day there. We also felt that they were just trying to make money out of us, rather than offering an honest opinion. We decided to take a taxi to the Terracotta Army (arranged by hostel at a premium- in retrospect we should just have stepped into the street and caught one ourselves which would have probably cost half the price). We left the hostel at 7, took an English speaking guide on arriving there who sorted out the tickets (one of our children was free to enter although the hostel had not told us this, offering us instead 4 full price tours, later offering half price for the children). We were seeing the army by 8.45am which was wonderful and before the crowds. We were home before 12 which was so much better for our kids than a full day. In summary, Hantang house is fine for a night or two, but be wary of the advice offered and do your research before committing to anything.…
The hostel has a mix of rooms, with dorms, but also hotelrooms. Which attracts a lot of different guests. The bar area is nice and the dormroom has a hotelroom feel, with a nice bathroom. It is close to the muslim quarter, which is also a plus. Stil the common area felt a bit crowded and dark at times. Saw there sister hostel (hantang hotel) in the same street, which looked nicer.
