Though it was hard for my driver to find, this hotel was worth the challenge. It's in a very green and high-end area of Dongguan. Checking in was quick and the staff was helpful. The AC in my room was somewhat weak. Overall, no complaints.

Our decision of grabbing a quick weekend getaway to Sofitel Donnguan was seen with skepticism by our folks here. However, we trusted the reviews (rather, the hotel's response to the reviews) to finalise this destination. We chose the train to Changping from HK as a mode of transport to the hotel. Thankfully, the hotel helped us with the Chinese name.... More

I just checked out from here after a 1 week stay. I have come here for 3 or 4 one- week business trips each year since the hotel opened 12+ years ago. The check in went well although they now pre-bill your credit card which i do not think they should do, especially since I am a Platinum member of... More

Not a bad place but by no means a 5 star hotel. Solid 4 star, but not 5 star. Restaurant is always mostly empty, but generally very clean and nice. Gym opens late, but if you ask, they will open it early for you. The problem is that the equipment does not have a TV and the gym attendant watches... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. I’m pleased to learn that you appreciate the cleanliness of the hotel. After the summer holidays, restaurants are less crowded indeed. Please accept my apology for the shortfall in expectation of the GYM. It's available 24 hours a day and service with staff from 6:00 to 22:30. We're... More

I travel for business in China weeks at the time. Every time I can spend a week-end at Sofitel Royal Lagoon, it's like being home. And that is very important....Staff is carrying and are always there to make your stay is as comfortable as possible. I am sad to leave, every time I know it is my last week end.

Nice and large rooms Nice swimming pool English is not the official language of hotel staff and sometimes it was difficult to communicate. But I will recommend this hotel for a professional stay and not a private

This was the first time my better half had stopped here and she was overwhelmed with the luxurious feel and beautiful surroundings. A short stroll down the road, or better still hire a bike from the hotel and you can ride for miles around Donguan park and even feed the hundreds of Koi carp the length of your arm in... More

Royal has been my first home when I arrived to China, many years ago. I feel it very comfortable, clean and quiet. Staff was always kind and helpful. Years passing, I happened to stay there sometimes and it always kept the same quality standard as my first impression. The only negativd point is the, almost, impossibility to get a taxi.

It’s wonderful to have many dedicated support of Sofitel DG Royal Lagoon like yourself. As the new general manager here, I’m reviewing your comment further with my team to see the taxi situation of the city. Meantime, our concierge could provide a transportation service if so necessary to get hotel guests from resort to point A at a very reasonable... More

Nice atmosphere and v good services. Plat. Member but as usual in china, doesn't offered a lot of privileges even top tier level. Good for relax or for a weekend. Another Sofitel beside this hotel actually similar but cheaper... Not sure why.

I’m pleased to learn about your positive experience with Sofitel Royal Lagoon Dongguan! Indeed, it’s a great getaway to relax after a week of hard work. I’m glad that you feel the same. The other Sofitel DG Golf Resort has only 133 well-appointed guestrooms. Some guests really love the guestrooms there, but Royal Lagoon has more facilities to offer as... More
