    great location for muslim traveller”

    very close to muslim quarter just a few meters or 2-3 minute walking distance as well as very close to bell tower, drum tower and metro station. for muslim food shouldn't be problem.

    the hotel is clean and everyday they gave us new towels, slippers, etc. overall value for money and the staff also very helpful eventhough can't speak english. location very close to muslim quarter just a few meters or 2-3 minute walked as well as very close to bell tower, drum tower, shopping complex and metro station. for muslim travellers like us from malaysia, food shouldn't be problem. will stay there if we go to xi'an next time.

    Would never go back to here...The two Taxis that we took from the Airport (3 couples)...one got lost and took 2 hrs to then drop us off not at the hotel but close to where he thought it was...luckily our other travellers were looking up and down the streets for us...great start to our stay...we were furious...then we see our rooms....the carpeted floor was softer than the beds so we all put our doona on the filthy carpet tried to sleep.

    Great location but the room was too small”

    Very close to Bell Tower, Drum Tower and very convienient for shopping

    I booked a twin bed room on Business class-$46.00, thought that I would get a little bigger room, probably because I arrived in the hotel at 10 pm, and only stay 1 night.so they gave me a smaller room, and carpet is not clean, hot water was stop when my friend was in the middle of her shower, I am very disappointed.

    Location! Location! Location!”

    The position of the hotel is excellent and one of the English-speaking ladies at reception was very helpful.

    We'd rate this as a 2.5-star - price OK for what you get. The rooms were a bit shabby - possibly could be smartened up a bit - and the air-conditioning didn't work so we just left the window open. The bathroom left a lot to be desired - it was clean but very dilapidated. Also, these are the hardest beds we slept on in our entire China trip ... in fact, in our entire lives!! The lighting was also a bit dull - yellow light rather than bright light. For those of us who are no longer 20 years old, this made reading a bit difficult. Check-in (unless you're walking in across Bell Tower Square) is via back alleys and the rear entrance and car-park of the hotel. We were then shown to our rooms which was a bit strange as this meant we had to leave the hotel (via the rear entrance), cross the carpark and go into another building out the back (buildings No. 2 and 3). I guess the better rooms were in the main building?

    Good hotel. Very well located.”

    Located in the city center, in front of the Drum Tower Square.

    Good hotel in general, although it seemed that the carpet in our room had not been cleaned for years. It had stains all over. Breakfast not so good as it only satisfied chinese customers.

    Fantastic location, very helpful staff

    The hotel was easy to find and was very flash in the foyer. Our room was out the back in a more budget building but the room was fine. Clean with lots of hot water. We only booked for 1 night and wanted to extend this to 2 so they kindly let us use the hotel computer to go onto agoda to do this.

    Excellent location, outstanding service”

    Location, great service and friendly staff

    This hotel is in a great location, right between the bell and drum towers in the middle of the old city. It's easy walking distance to shops, restuarants, street food and the muslim quarter markets. The hotel staff were incredibly helpful. We arrived after an overnight train from Beijing and were met by a very helpful woman who spoke good English. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you're Chinese isn't great (like ours). The room was also excellent, the bed was large and comfortable, and the bathroom good as well. The carpets were a bit dirty but it didn't affect my allergies. Internet is lan only, they supplied a cable in the room. We loved this hotel, it was great value for money and close to everything we needed. Would definitely stay there again if we're in Xi'an.

    Great location, but a/c issues”


    this older style, reasonably priced hotel is very popular because it is right in the heart of xian. a cash deposit is requested instead of a credit card as room security. towels and linen are wearing a little thin, but breakfast was great and shopping, restaurants and many attractions are within walking distance. rooms are small but functional. except for the a/c in our room. while hotel staff responded twice by checking on our complaint, it was late (and we were unpacked) when they offered us another room.

    Wonderful lockation right in the city center

    only stayed a couple nights, but what we wanted to see was all right there. the drum tower, next door, the bell tower also close as well as the muslin shopping/eating streets. only things i didn't like was that the room carpeting was quite dirty and the bathroom plumbing had a bit of a smell, but all in all still glad we stayed there.

    Very clean, comfortable, quiet, excellent price

    It took us a bit of effort to find the hotel but once we did - what a treat! Right between the Bell and Drum Towers, you would expect it to be noisy during the Oct 1 holiday, but it was quiet and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom well appointed. There was no need for the air conditioning as the windows opened to a wonderful breeze. Would definitely stay there again being so close to the airport shuttle, sites and metro station.
