The appeal of this hotel lies definitely in its architecture and its location near the Big Wild Goose pagoda. The rooms and courtyard are peaceful and quiet despite being close to a park with many activities day and night.
I would still say that the prices are steep considering all the pros and cons of this place. Having read previous reviews, I agree with most everything I read. The beds are comfortable, the food very nice. The bathrooms do smell slightly of sewage. I would add that our bathtub, although a beautiful wooden tub, was unusable because the plug did not prevent the water from leaking out.
The staff were helpful and offered a car ride service to the terracotta warriors, which is useful if you do not have much time. However, the price was 200 yuan more than a taxi would have cost (approx. 40$) and much more than a bus from the train station (8 yuan, 1.6$).
