This Starbucks is conveniently located and serves good coffee. This Starbucks has a western toilet but it was really dirty and smelled terrible.

We were craving our hazelnut Frappuccino and still looking for our Xi’An mug. It started raining and we were by the Drum Tower Square actually closer to the Bell Tower side and spotted a Starbucks. It seemed like such a perfect location and it was. However, as it started raining everyone ran inside and grabbed seats without ordering. We ordered... More

Good Coffee in China is like finding a car park in the middle of very busy and large cities around the world. So have a snack at Starbucks was like recharging the batteries after so long without decent coffee.

Having been a Starbucks lover for many years, I was really surprised and disappointed to find out they will not give you small change to use public transport unless you pay for an overpriced coffee. Starbucks, you might not care much, but you lost a lifetime customer.

Added a pit stop here when heading home from Moslem street and it was absolutely lovely. As always, great Frappuchinos! The staff was fast and efficient and they spoke English. The place was a bit crowded as it was afternoon but we managed to get a clean table. Perfect place for a pit stop when you are inside the ring... More

I wouldn't normally review a Starbucks but when you're a long way from home occasionally you need a break from the exotic and a toilet you can sit on. This Starbucks provided both. It is nothing more or less than what you might expect,. Even if your Mandarin isn't all that flash, and their English is on a par you... More

This Starbucks is in an excellent location, very centrally located and just 2 minutes walk from the Bell Tower subway station. You could even view both the Bell Tower and also the Drum Tower, if you are willing to sit outside, where there are tables and seats. The maintenance of the toilet however for such top performing Starbucks store is... More

Its of course only another starbucks. But if you love it, you'll love the one in between the two towers, as it looks very special from the outside.

Very crowded Starbucks. Line up is long and hard to find a seat. Better walk up the stairs (right above) and you will find better coffee, smaller line up.

I am not a fan of food chains, but in this location I can say Starbucks in Xi'An saved my breakfast. Nice place on the "plaza" with outdoor tables. Clean and tidy to Starbucks standards, food is ok , coffee is good but only disposable cups available at the time we visited or staff didn't ask if we have the... More
