Few metropolitan cities are able to retain the very heart and soul of its culture the way China’s Xi’an has. It was once upon a time known as the city of Chang’an, which translates to ‘eternal peace’ in Chinese. It is the capital of Shaanxi province in the center of the Guanzhong Plain and is the oldest of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China.
The city also marks the eastern end of the Silk Road, an ancient network of trade routes that connected the West and East, as it was once the chosen home of numerous ancient dynasties. Among many of Xi’an’s cultural hotspots, quite possibly the most iconic is the Bingmayong (Terracotta Army), which is a collection of over eight thousand terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China.
Most of Xi’an is easily accessible on foot, with many of its commercial, residential, educations zones in the city, especially in the shopping and entertainment districts around the Bell Tower, connected through underpasses and overpasses that have been built for the safety and convenience of pedestrians.
Apart from that, the rental of public bicycles is easily available, offering locals and visitors alike accessible transportation in and around the city. Alternatively, residents of the Citadines Central Xi'an will be pleased to know that there are plenty of bus routes that run through the vicinity and that the closest railway station is a mere 15-minute drive away.
Thanks to its remarkably centralised location, the serviced residence is a great place for first-time visitors to get their bearings of the city as well as a convenient locale for residents to retire to at the end of a long, weary day or to pop in and out in between meetings.
Citadines Central Xi’an is well-equipped to cater to various travellers seeking a sanctuary in the middle of the bustling city, with multiple apartment options to choose from to customise their accommodations according to their travel requirements - a 29-37 sqm studio that would be perfect for an individual travelling for business to a generously spacious 2-bedroom apartment with the ability to accommodate up to a party of six.
Citadines Central Xi’an also has a comprehensive list of on-site amenities that only our residents will have access to, such as a fitness centre, business corner and meeting rooms, yoga, table tennis and billiard rooms, as well as a roof garden that offers our guests a panoramic view of the beautiful city.
