The location is very great and near to the bell and drum tower. We only stayed there one night and the flight delay, so don't have much time to explore at the hotel. The breakfast is ok. After the breakfast we checked out and start to tour.

Dont let the pictures fool you. The hotel is old and run down. Dirty carpets, smokey lobby, and awfully old towels (rags?) provided in the room. The wifi didnt work through out 5 days of my stay. The tea cups were not changed nor replaced after we went out and came back. And each time someone smoked in the aisle,... More

I stayed in this City Hotel recently and I find it very strategic. It is walking distance to the subway metro station and just behind shopping area. It is located an a small road and not facing the main road so it is not noisy. Amenities are all in place.

We arrived at 6pm to be told our room was not ready, that's a first! However, we did not have a long wait and staff were helpful. Upon arrival, we were not impressed by the reception area, but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived in our room. Perfectly adequate and roomy enough for us and our bags. Location was ok....

The location is fantastic! It is within walking distance to Bell Tower, Drum Tower and the Muslim Quarter, and the subway. There is a convenience store right next door. The room was clean and tidy though the carpet and furniture were dated. Only the bathroom was refurbished. The breakfast buffet was pretty standard. Wi-Fi facility in our room was not... More

This hotel has a very good location close to the Drum Tower and subway station. We got there by subway from Xi'an North train station and had a little difficulty finding the entrance because although the address is on South Street, the entrance is in a side street. Also the location on the tripadvisor map was not correct. Service in... More

Great hotel overall. I’ve stayed here two separate occasions and have been satisfied each time. The price is cheap; room quality is nice, especially the bathroom; the service is good; and the location is excellent about 200 yards from the famous Drum Tower. It’s also close to the Xi’an city wall and the Muslim food streets. The hotel also provides... More
