Very nice hotel with fantastic rooms and view of the hisoric center of Xi'am. The room was wide amb very confortable for 3 people. Great buffet for breakfast. We enjoy a lot there. Walking you can go to the ancient wall and inside the streets. Nice.

When I've arrived to the hotel, the reservation made on Hotels.com was not even in the hotel's system. I spend half hour there, by the lobby, waiting and waiting. Four people by the desk, only one speaks a little bit of English. My passport taken from me for a while, then returned back, then taken again. I was trying to...

While to reservation staff was nice and the hotel was suitable, we felt ripped off by the guys working at the Concierge's desk when we left. We asked for a taxi to take us to the airport. Although the fare should have been 60 CNY the concierge working told the cab driver to charge us 120 CNY. I tried repeatedly...

Located conveniently within earshot distance from the south gate, Ginwa plaza hotel is a clean and nice hotel but it has a 20 year old loot that is yelling to be renovated. I the other hand the price per room is very reasonable hat one can certainly able to overlook the details.

Recommended by my tour operator...it is a clean and tidy hotel, the lobby and reception areas make a good first impression. Reception, restaurant staff, bellhops and the concierge have good English. The location is directly across the road from the city wall, which is stunningly lit at night. There is a metro station about 500 metres to the right of...

I stayed here with my tour group. When the bus pulled up to the entrance to the parking lot the guard wanted us to unload out luggage there while it was pouring rain. The walk to the actual hotel must have been at least 30 to 40 meters, uncovered. Our tour guide told him he was crazy and had the...
