What do you want from an hotel room? To be spacious, clean, with a big comfortable bed, a big TV screen and last but not least...a nice shower! At Merlinhod I've found all of that and surprisingly it exceeded my expectations! Friendly staff an a nice environment have made my stay in Xi'an very enjoyable.

This is the 1st time we stay in a hotel where everything is provided for free. Anything and everything that you need n can think of is provided to you. Feel free to take Extra Slippers for adult n children, medicines for car sickness, headaches, bandages, sunblock, rain coat, mineral water, shavers, toothbrush, comb etc are all layout at the lobby table. They even have a common space just right behind the reception for you to chill where you can eat plenty of free snacks , cakes, biscuits, fruits and vege, coffee , teas n water all day long. Instead of small mineral water provided in room, Each room has big mineral water and plenty of mineral water for u to take at each floor near the lift.

Room is clean, modern and comfortable. A really huge tv for u to see with sofa for you to sit in. Curtains are control automatically. Toilet and shower are separated.

The staff is really friendly , nice n sincere. The bell boy refuse to take my tip even after I keep insisting it.

Just next to the muslim quaters where they have lots to eat. And at the same road with large shopping mall. A easy 6min walk to the drum tower.

As others had stated, this hotel consists of 2 building, opposite of each other with the same car entrance. The old and the new building. We booked the new building through ctrip. It's more pricey but definitely worth it.

This is the place to stay in Xian. It really bring hospitality to a new meaning for me.

Built probably in 1990s and not updated well. The room was comfortable and the staff polite, but the amenities are worn, soiled, and just showing their age. Perfectly located a few yards from Muslim Street and the Drum Tower inside the walls, and was certainly once a classy place, but slipped. If you are willing to overlook some things, it is a fine place to stay.

The Merlinhod is an old run down hotel, hence the cheaper rates. The Mehood Lestie is the new building right next to it (same driveway) that is wonderful, nicely decorated with modern amenities, and tons of freebies. The hotel complex advertises a fitness center - there is NOT one. Breakfast very good and offered in the older building, great value if you stay in the new Mehood Lestie since the breakfast is included.
