Too Far

Posted Oct 9, 2010
I chose this hotel based on the map view thinking it was walkable from the train station. It is not, the location marker is wrong -- the hotel is at least a few kilometres east of where it was shown. As a result, I walked around the station area several times with all my luggage looking like an idiot. I flagged down a taxi, the first one did not even know where it was. If you want to be close to the attractions inside the walls of Xi'an, do not stay here. If the Xi'an Metro opens in the near future, it might be a more convenient place to stay The rooms have some unique touches, but as with many hotels of this type in China, the maintenance is a sloppy and there are some ragged edges. Otherwise, it is not bad value for the money.

Nose plug please

I have been backpacking around Asia. And if you have the money to spend, use it somewhere else. The bathroom had a particualar smell to it which took about 2 days to get out of my head. I flew in from the Hilton in Beijing and they couldn't find this hotel to confirm my reservations or ask for directions, which I would have needed because NO ONE knows where this hotel is located. I was dropped of by the taxi at another hotel about 5 blocks away and this NEW hotel was able to locate mine and ask someone to come get it. (I WISHED they wouldn't have). I feel bad but even for $20 in Cambodia I got more. This is NOT a hotel ready for outsideds.

Good Room condition

Posted Jul 26, 2009
I like the entire room condition.It is comfortable and cozy. The space of the standard room is big, which I like very much. You may have music playing through the soundbox on the ceiling when you are taking a shower. It is not far from Jiaotong University.

Extremely friendly staff.

This hotel is approx 10 mins taxi journey to the centre of Xi'an and there's plenty of taxi's passing the front of the hotel. Staff are very friendly and very helpful, especially the manager who always took an interest in our well being. Would defintely stay here again.

hotel Karson à Xi'an

Posted Jun 16, 2010
hotel très classe dans un quartier populaire. chambre superbe. Très bon rapport qualité/prix. Seul défaut: la température de l'eau était difficile à régler. Mais c'est un problème courrant en Chine; même dans des hotels deux fois plus chères.
