Good base for a trip to Xi'an. Close to middle of city. Room was comfortable for the price. Checking in was not so good as few can speak English.
Room was clean but I was disappointed by the bathroom. Need as bit of renovation and amenities were not up to Mercure standards. The dispenser for shampoo/conditioner/wash felt more like an Ibis.
Breakfast was good served next door at the Sofitel. Second best breakfast at a Mercure I had (the one at Sapporo was the best).
Close to a shopping centre and restaurants.
I ended up using the Sofitel to arrange things like taxis and getting information. They are more efficient and knowledgeable. The Mercure is regarded as 4 stars because to have access to the Sofitel for food, pool etc.
Overall would highly recommend especially for the price.More
