Shangri-La Golden Flower

8 Changle Xi Lu, Xian, Shaanxi, 710032, China

The older of the two Shangri-La's in Xian, this remains one of the city's most luxurious hotels. The English-speaking staff is very helpful —you'll find yourself wondering how the maids manage to tidy up your room and turn down your bed during the half hour you spent swimming laps in the indoor pool. The hotel is 10–15 minutes northeast of the city center, and easily accessible by subway. Get off at Tong Hua Men station on Line 1 and take Exit B. Make sure your cab driver knows you're going to the Golden Flower Hotel, and not the Shangri-La, or else you many find yourself at the newer Shangri-La all the way across town to the east.

PROS

  • spacious rooms
  • excellent room service

CONS

  • layout is confusing, rooms beginning to show age.
