“Outstanding hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

Beautiful hotel with good-sized, well-appointed rooms. Many of the staff spoke English well. Breakfast buffets were outstanding, with mostly western-style food (I liked the Chinese food for lunches and dinners, but having basically the same thing for breakfast was not appealing to me or my family). Nice pool and spa.

Huge hotel located in the city walls a 25 minute walk to the sites.
OK service and a hard sell for an upgrade upon checkin even though I'd already prepaid. Decided to stick with the superior room in the west wing. Hard bed, pool closed for repairs, and no room service asides breakfast.
Restaurants were overpriced and best avoided
Overall very very disappointed with this Sofitel property.

This was the best Hotel we stayed at in China in almost 4 weeks in the Country. The rooms were clean and outstandingly well appointed, the majority of staff spoke English and the food in the restaurants we ate at in the hotel was at a very high level. the Concierge staff were particularly helpful.

Thanks to all the staff we really enjoyed our 4 nights experience at Sofitel Xi'an.

Nice hotel, Internet worked well, twin beds were OK for family of four.

We took the overnight train from Xian to Beijing, the deluxe soft sleeper for four was very tight, specially if you have large suitcases. Pay the extra to skip the train lines, but getting to the train platform isn't easy, the escalators do not work, so you'll be dragging your suitcases up and down stairs.

Must see the tera cotta soldiers!

Room Tip: Two twin bed room was OK for family of four, two small children.

Although only spending two nights in this hotel we found the accomodation and service to be first class. The only draw-back was it was a "two site" Hotel and most of the main facilities were in the other wing to ours.

Room Tip: Make sure you book into the wing with the restaurants & bars.
