What a FUN morning!!! We woke up for a quick breakfast, packed our bags, then off we went to the Ancient Wall surrounding the city of Xi'an. This ancient wall surrounds the entire city.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
I only spent 2 night at the Bell Tower and had such an amazing time there!! Hotel and rooms were clean. Room's we spacious, had everything i wanted!! The front desk were miserable. I went to check in and they only just about managed to smile!! The lady at the travel centre on the second floor was really nice, polite and very informative!!
The best thing about this hotel has to be the location. Right in front of the Bell Tower and a minutes walk away is the Drum tower and the muslin quaters!! I would definately go back!!
