    Comfortable Bed but wait there is more”
    location, bed, price
    This hotel was fine. It started out a bit rocky, We rented 2 rooms for 2 adults and 2 older children. The room with the king bed did not have a working minibar - needed the fridge for medicine. The said they would have to call maintenance in the morning. I told them to get it from a different room and pulled it out of the cabinet for them. Problem solved. Beds Comfortable. The AC in our room did not work well - it was working very well in the kids room. I will count that as a plus as my wife did not freeze me out. Good breakfast. Near South Wall entrance. Nice man out front who would ask me if I wanted company each night. Get the names of local tour guides at airport or train station. We paid about 350 Yuan a day for a guide here - same as in Beijing. Hotel wanted more. Called guide to take me to airport - about an hour away - 300 Yuan vs 2 times as much for hotel arranging it. If these people are here to help - why do they rip you off

    spacious, hugh room
    Bit aged, not up to the 5 star standard. I requested a non-smoking room, but it still smells like cigeragettes. Nothing is really around the hotel, had buffet dinner, which is okay for this price. It's fine for a short stay, but the fact that doesnt has wifi makes a business trip very inconvinient.

    Great location, but terrible food.”
    Location, location, location!
    arrived at the hotel and it appeared clean and tidy, and at face value good value for money. that soon changed though. the views from our room were fantastic, the city wall is illuminated at night and it looks wonderful. although the dirt and grime on the window did detract from theview. the road noise at night is terrible and my wife really struggled to sleep. we were on the 8th floor so although not a high floor (as requested) not roadside either. room was generally clean, although the bathroom could have done with a good steam clean. first night we decided to eat in the hotel. it was the worst meal i have ever eaten. well i say eaten, we left 90% of it. i honestly think the chef had a night off and they got someone off the street to prepare the food. my reccomendation if you stay at this hotel, eat out! we tried to book a car to take us back to the airport, what a rip off! tried charging 700rmb when it only cost 300rmb from the airport in a luxury minivan. book direct with the airport and avoid hotel scams like this.

    Chinese Copy of a 5 Star Hotel”
    Location was great for us. Price was also very reasonable.
    This Hotel was a Chinese copy of a 5 star hotel. The Hotel has the right facade, the rooms (though dated and a little worn) seem to fit the bill. It is the lack of understanding of what makes a truly good hotel that diminished the value of this establishment. They have all the parts of the machinery of a 5 star hotel but only a partial understanding of how it all works. They've made the copy precisely but they don't know how to make it function as an integrated whole. They try hard but they just don't quite "get it". Not an unpleasant stay but one that was constantly frustrating us in many subtle and minor ways.

    Clean, modern, convenient location within walking distance of the inner city
    This hotel could have been anywhere in the world. It was clean and modern but lacked any traditional Chinese charm. The staff were friendly and willing to help, although there were a few language issues. We didn't eat there, but I ordered a black tea on arrival and they charged 88RMB (around USD $10!), crazy! The location is very convenient, just outside the gate of the inner city and within walking distance to restaurants and main sights.

    Great location with run down rooms.”
    Hotel is located very close to some of Xian's main attractions such as the bell tower, drum tower and south gate.
    i enjoyed my stay at this hotel, however, i did not think that the quality of our room was up to howard johnson's standard. the furniture seemed a but rundown and dated. in addition to this, we requested a nonsmoking room but were placed in a room that reeked of smoke with a nonsmoking sign next to an ashtray with matches. i have stayed in howard johnson hotels previously and been very pleased. i was however, very impressed with the hotel staff. although their english was a bit limited they took very good care of us and even chased us out the door to return a converter we had left in one of the outlets.
