Part of the new Swisstouches brand, this 318 room business hotel has just opened in Xi’an, the ancient capital of China, close to the legendary Terracotta army of Emperor Qin. Designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates, the interiors were inspired by Switzerland, incorporating the red hue of the national flag and cuckoo clocks that chirp up to announce happy hour in the Club Lounge. An impressive spa covers two floors, offering a large pool and China’s first private Jacuzzi cabins. The top floor bar offers great views over Xi’an and has become the fashionable spot to be seen. Try its Choco Martini, made from delicious Swiss chocolate.
