This hotel is on the main street in Xian's Central area, a 5 minute walk to Muslim Quarter and other markets and a 2 minute walk the other way to the City Wall entrance. It's also surrounded by modern shopping stores so you get access to the new and the old. The hotel itself was a huge surprise for the... More

This hotel is located not far from the beautiful bell tower right in the city. Very good location. Near to everywhere and the city is lit with lights. Very beautiful. The room is quite small but will be sufficient for 2 ppl to stay in. The shower needs improvement though. The selection of breakfast could be better, overall, it's a... More

This room can’t be beat due to its proximity to many landmarks. It’s a stone’s throw away from the gate, and not far from the Muslim Quarter etc… There is night food directly nearby, the rooms are clean and newer than other hotels in Xi’An and the price was incredible. I wish we would have stayed here the entire time... More

We stayed here last week, our room was very big. Very clean and comfortable. Bed was comfy enough (chinese hotels all seem to have very hard beds!!) But this one wasn't too bad. Bathroom had big shower and toilet room seperate. There was a cord for hanging up washing as well which was great. Bottled water supplied daily. Housekeeping did... More

Rating based on description of hotel as a 3 star. Very good for this category. We were apparently upgraded, so maybe not all rooms are the same. Room was not huge but there was adequate space. Good shower, but all glass between bathroom and bedroom, with only a mirror to block views. Very nice fluffy towels. Breakfast was fine, not... More

Located a very close walk to either the Xi'an Wall South Gate or the Bell Tower, this property is ideally located. If you also like very (very!) high end shopping, this is also good for you. Some very (very!) expensive brand stores surround the property. The draw backs are that it's a long taxi ride to the airport and a... More

I haven't read all the reviews, but the ones I did read are all over the place. I am staying here right now and find the hotel perfectly fine. No smells, no noise and the bed is fine for China which is known for hard beds. I have stayed on harder in Asia for sure. They upgraded me without asking... More
