Bell Tower Hotel (Zhōnglóu fàndiàn) Review

Relatively inexpensive compared to other hotels in its class, the very popular Bell Tower has spacious, airy rooms with views overlooking downtown Xian. Directly across from the Bell Tower, this hotel puts you within walking distance of many tourist sights. On the second floor, you can compare rates offered by three experienced travel agencies, all competing aggressively for your business. Rooms at the front of the building are more expensive because they have views of the Bell Tower, but some visitors are disturbed by noise from the traffic.
