Xi'an - City Wall, Terracotta Warriors

A travel blog entry by julians26


Today was to be another big one! We started with a large buffet breakfast before boarding the bus for a short drive to the Xi'an city wall. The city centre of Xi'an is surrounded by a wall that was first built in the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907) and extended during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). The wall is 12 m tall and 12 to 14 m wide at the top; it …

City wall, Terracotta Army, dumplings/performance

A travel blog entry by hallenmont


It has been a full on day and we have seen so much.
The day started after a tasty pancake breakfast with a trip to the City Wall. This is a fabulous structure and is intact - over thirteen kilometers surrounding the original city limits. These days Xi'an has expanded in all directions outside the wall. It was great to walk along and …

An early start this morning as we have travelled down to Xi'an - which is a 2 hour flight from Beijing.

The major downside of today was prior to take off we sat on the runway for more than an hour - I could see a big queue of planes ahead of us all about to take off - so I suspect that was the reason. Apparently this is not an uncommon …

Day 5-Terracotta Warriors, Springs and Paragodas!

A travel blog entry by jackcooper2013


Well after last nights extremely late entry, I decided to write this entry at a more comfortable time of 8:20. Knowing me, however, I'm probably going to be just as tired tomorrow morning as I was today, but today was worth the lack of morning sleepins. Breakfast buffets eased in the wake up, with pork dumplings and bacon being my favourite pick of …

Yeah, I'd say the title pretty much sums it sister came to China, contracted some kind of horrid stomach, upper respiratory, whole body, flu-like, death bug. And then she went home, leaving me with an infested apartment full of nasty kleenex, medicine slewen about and a hole in my heart after my first full night of sleep uninterrupted by …

    Fabulous place to stay. Sofitel have two buildings, the East and West wings connected by a long underground corridor. The West wing is where we stayed. The rooms are very comfortable. The East wings is where we went for a Brazilian Barbecue and for breakfast. Both were very tasty. This is a former government site and other buildings on the site provide architectural interest. The gardens are superb!

    The room was beautiful, very comfortable bed. We were upgraded to a junior suite with a nice view. We had the buffet dinner - expensive but very worth it for the diversity and quality of the dishes. We had the most eager and helpful bellboy give us suggestions of where to walk.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sofitel Xi'an On Renmin Square

    Loved it


    I really cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in this hotel and were very impressed with the high level of customer service we were given during our stay. Having booked three rooms, two were upgraded to suites on the club floor and one a deluxe. All three rooms had stunning bathrooms, a sitting area, ample storage for a short stay, and the most comfortable beds (a novelty in China).

    An Unexpected Delight


    This hotel has received some mixed reviews, focusing on two issues: language skills of staff and excessive use of glass walls in bathrooms.

    Beautiful hotel, but it doesn't work


    The Sofitel looks gorgeous, but just does not wok as a a tranquil resting spot. First of all - the bathrooms; they have glass walls! Everyone is entitled to a bit of privacy - 'nough said on the subject. The very stylish raised sink takes up so much space that there is little room for one's own toiletries. And if you miss the edge of the counter, they will forever rest in the two inch space between the back of the vanity and the glass wall.

    It is impossible to stow one's belongings in the room - just two hangars in the large walkin closet and very minimal drawer space in a room large enough to qualify as a suite. Whatever were they thinking?

    Fabulous hotel


    The only thing which wan't excellent about this hotel was the was a little feeble, but the temperature was constant. Everything else was great. Great staff, great room and furnishings, great service. We would stay there again.

    Very Good choice in Xian


    Just back from 3 nights in Xian and stayed at the new Sofitel Hotel. Overall, excellent stay, however we did stay in an executive suite and had free lounge access. Rooms were very modern and more of a design hotel than typical business hotel. Our suite seemed a bit small however, although was perfectly adequate. A regular room is probably tiny based on the size of our bedroom. Service was beyond excellent, although we were one of the few people actually in the hotel given the low tourist season. Room service and the two restaurants we tried were very good (Cantonese and Japanese). Layout of hotel is a bit strange (two buildings connected by a long tunnel). Given reviews of the Xian Hyatt and Shangri-la being dated, the Sofitel was likely the much better choice. Would definitely stay here again if back in Xian.

    Definately not a 5 star hotel


    Stayed here with my wife 2/28-3/2/06.

    Refuge from the cold & pollution


    this is almost a 5 star hotel, the good parts:

    Amazing Hotel!! The best I've stayed in China.


    Well -- as a user of tripadvisor, this is my first review, but I HAD to post one for the Sofitel in Xi'an. It is truly outstanding. I've stayed at other Sofitels before, and while they are generally good, this is by far the best one I've stayed in ever.

    Apparently they recently redid the hotel within the past few months, and it is fabulous. In particular, the SPA is amazing. Excellent workout utiliies. Excellent food (breakfast was amazing) and service. The rooms are amazing. I would stay there a month if I could!

    Note that this is my first time to Xi'an, but my stay was very nice.

    OK- but not quite there yet


    We stayed at this hotel second week in Oct and found it to be nice - not great, certainly not 5-star, but nice. We got the feeling that they are just starting up and there is still a lot of work to be done, but overall it is a good hotel.

    Great hotel


    This is a new 5-star hotel on Renmin Square, which used to be the provincial CCP offices.
