The location is fantastic, being right in the middle of Xi'an. I was very happy with my room... a spacious feeling with super comfortable bed and pillows. The breakfast was okay... but not great. There wasn't much English spoken so it was hard to get information/advice about where to go (or to get a towel brought to my room. I tried 3 times and then ended up going down with a bath mat to act out what I needed!). The showerhead was leaking over the edges so it was more like a bucket being poured than the 'rain water' as advertised - I didn't really mind but some people might.
good location, friendly and helpful staff
The staff responded quickly to my requests. First we were put in a smoking room with burn marks on the carpet even though I reserved a non-smoking room. We were switched to another room, but carpet was still old and dirty. Beds were the most uncomfortable I have ever slept in. The hotel did not have heat so my room was cold. I specifically chose this hotel because the website said it had a children's playroom. When we asked about it, the staff told us there is no playroom. If I had known this, I never would have reserved a room at this hotel. I was extremely disappointed and upset. I will not stay at the Grand Mercure again. Definitely not a 5 star hotel.
Excellent location, nice hotel and very comfortable.
This hotel is the perfect choice of staying in Xian. Very nice enviroment, luxury, perfect cooperation with the staf. It was great staying there.
Staff quality was very high. Quiet hotel, near the city center. top quality of different services. Very good hotel. No negative comments
Grand Mercure is associated with the Sofitel. When we encountered an issue with our room's electrical problem, we were immediately moved to a very up-scale room in the Sofitel. Even though the price was more than the Grand Mercure, the price given was as if at the Grand Mercure. Our compliments to Amelia the Sofitel manager. Close proximity to sightseeing in the downtown area.
The size of the room was great, service excellent, very good breakfast, but location at the far end of the square and not so close to city life is a small handicap, easily overcome by the price...Seems to me perfect for seminar or congress As above, location is not ideal when you go in and out...
Quick check in. Location was pretty good. Room was clean and tidy. Room a bit small. Bathtub leaked, but not my problem.
Overall did not match up to description on internet. Part of good hotel chain, but staff spoke very little English. Food in club lounge felt old.
Good location, very friendly personnel, not a problem to communicate in English. Interesting building with internal yard.
room was smoke-free and not even smelling of smoke
swiming pool, Gym room and Staff who can speak English Staff
It was clean and close to the city wall/activities. This is not a 4 or 5 star hotel by western standards. At best it is a 3 star hotel. Additionally, when we checked in the front desk clerk took forever to check us in and continuously let other things interupt her while she should have been attending to us. The price for the breakfast and afternoon buffet at the hotel's restaurant is way overpriced with the limited selection they have. The bathrooms are outdated and small. The hotel didn't have electrical adapters for travelers. Additionally, when I called the front desk for an iron board it took 3 calls before someone understood what I was asking for. In fact, I even provide the Mandarin name for "iron" which is "tang" and the front desk person still didn't understand.
