tl;dr: would not recommend. This is effectively a cheap motel, with worse amenities. The apartment does not look like the photos at all. I actually left this Airbnb to stay at another one midway through because it was so miserable. ROOM: Poorly lit with harsh white lighting, off-color yellowish sheets, an empty kitchen (why have one at all if there are no pot/pans/utensils), very thin sheets. Stains on the black couch. Fridge was not plugged in, and also had a moldy smell. A/C worked properly. BATHROOM: There's a squeaking/whining sound in the bathroom every few minutes, the toilet tank had no cover so you had to push the switch in the water tank (nasty), it's a chinese style shower so water just floods the bathroom after a shower, there's no countertop space for your own toiletries, and it's also poorly lit. LOCATION: best part of this airbnb, right on top of a subway stop, with a small night market at night with various food carts. Lobby of the apartment smells disgusting, poorly kept. The hallways were dimly lit, and very grimy. Do not stay here if you're looking for comfortable accommodations. You actually might be better off staying at a motel.
Morgan was exceptionally helpful. Although we never saw him or know if he really exists, nevertheless his communication (emails) with us were always prompt and was a great help to us, especially as we found it very challenging communicating in China and there was restricted access to the internet by the government. His help was priceless for a multitude of topics. As for the accommodation is was very basic, cleanliness very poor (kitchen filthy, smelling of cooking oil but once we shut the kitchen door all odours were contained), sheets and towels lowest standard possible, very worn and even had holes in them. Despite all these facts, we still enjoyed our stay. The size of the apartment was good and the location was great - very handy to the easy-to-use subway, lots of good local places to eat, without mentioning American brands (KFC, Pizza Hut, etc). Also, the Sheraton hotel across the street was great for information about the city, to book tours and to get free maps; the concierge desk very helpful (they thought we were staying there I presume). Morgan's mum does not speak English at all and just expected us to phone Morgan if we had any queries or problems. Overall, good for the price if you don't mind the Chinese low cleanliness standards, great TV with English channels (if you are in China to watch TV) and fabulous help from Morgan.
Nice apartment on 19th floor of a beautiful building which is super strategically located, right under it is the Long shou yuan MRT stop and the bus stop is in front of the building, under the building there is a huge supermarket. I didn’t find Morgan around, but his mother is a super sweet lady. She came to pick us up at the airport, and managed the smallest helps we needed in the apartment. I would certainly recommend this place to everyone coming to the beautiful city of Xi’an and two small advices to Morgan if he can equip his kitchen a little more (though his mother brought all that we wanted) and to please have a microwave in the apartment. WiFi isn’t that great. Thanks for being a wonderful host, God bless you.
I stayed at Morgan's place for 3 nights. Pros: - Very good location - Spacious - Big comfy bed - Responsive host - Ride back to the airport early in the morning for RMB150 Cons: - Non usable kitchen - Traffic noise in bedroom until very late at night and from very early in the morning
Response from Morgan:
Thank you for your useful reccomendation. For the cleaning machine, we will provide the detergent later. Also, because of privacy, we prefer to clean the room after the guest leave for short-stay guest. For the rubbish, we would give instructions in the room for guests who wants to deal with them by themself, thanks for staying and help us to improve.
