this is where we place our corporate travelers. it always seems to get positive comments. the free form pool is a focal point as is the resident flock (gaggle?) of peacocks and peahens. restaurants are international (brazillian and japanese). rooms are business quality and pleasant. verona, at the manger's desk, does an outstanding job and is very capable. it is...

You would not think of staying here for a business trip, or say you would not consider this place as for a work trip, because it was too good and you would not want to leave in only a day or two. It was a bit far from train station, like around an hour by car and you found yourself... More

The Tangla (formerly Royal Lagoon) is my favorite of the Dongguan hotels that cater to the Western crowd of business people. It is light and airy, which goes a long way to lift your spirits when you are suffering from jet lag and working 14 hour days. The lobby lounge is our favorite place to convene at the end of...

A very large hotel slightly on the pricey side but worth it for the facilities and location. The hotel is set amongst trees and lawn on the edge of the lagoon. It forms around a large pool that would impress in most reports. You would think you are maybe on an island somewhere rather than be in the middle of... More

I stayed here twice, on business trips to China. This is a premium, luxury hotel, and the staff, service and general atmosphere reflect that well. I loved this hotel, and would gladly return on another trip to Dongguan.

The Tangla is the former Accor/Sofitel Royal Laggoons and this was my first stay since the change in ownership. There were no notable changes that I saw and I was satisfied with my stay. My room was the same, the hotel was clean and well maintained, and the buffet restaurant (where breakfast is provided) continued to be a wide and... More

I have stayed at this hotel off and on for 10 years and I have never seen such a steep decline in service as I have this last few weeks. Rare replenishment of toiletries, no expedited laundry service (unless left before 5 pm?? Who is at their hotel during the day???), terrible service at breakfast and rare clean tables, cold... More

The hotel is located next to a golf course, in a resort style environment. The room is huge with chinese style decoration and very spacious bathroom with bathtub. Lighitng in the bedroom is too dark for my liking, probably on average with most 5 stars hotel though. Their bedding is absolutely wonderful. Everything from the bed, pillow, comforter were just...

Dongguan is a very large sprawling city so hotel selection can be difficult if you are not sure of the location. The Sofitel Royal Lagoon is located near Qifeng with its lake and walking tracks in the centre of Dongguan. Easily accessible to the centre of Dongguan with its Bar Street and restaurants just 5 mins by taxi it is... More
