“Quality hotel at a central location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is a high quality hotel throughout. The breakfast is really excellent. I've stayed here a few times, and the staff has been very good always. The location is central, with many good restaurants in walking distance, and subway stations very close.

Only real complaint would be the internet connection, which is often slow and sometimes erratic - not an unusual problem in China.

Its evident that Beijing`s pollution problem is getting worse the moment you step out of the aircraft at the enormous airport.The whole area from airport to city was covered with smog and not only can you see it one can smell it throughout the whole day and night.
It took me only about 20-25minutes to get to the Sofitel as i arrived very late,past midnight so no traffic jam.The building from the outside looks ike just another tall office building.But once you step inside into its huge and high ceiling lobby one is impressed.The chandelier high up on the ceiling is spectacular.On one side of the lobby is a large cafe and the other side is the lobby.Lobby was modern with accents of chinese decor and artefacts.
Checkin was swift as it was late at night and receptionist was professional and polite and very accomadating.My room was on the 16th floor and was of average size but spacious.King size bed with 4 large pillows and a flat screen tv mounted onto the wall.Toilet was to the right as you entered the room and was big.Separate shower and bathtube with a small tv mounted so you can watch while you soak.The partition between the bathroom and the bedroom was glass.Plenty of drawers and closet space and a big safe to accomadate a laptop.Usual amenities like bathrobe iron kettle and minibar can be found in the room.Very new very clean and very well maintained.
Decor was modern wood paneling with chinese wall paper behind the bed and empty traditional chinese boxes as decorations around the room.The work desk was big with a high back chair which was placed next to the window.Even with the curtains closed i could feel the cold beijing air seep through the windows as it was minus11degrees celsius outside.
The bed was comfortable and the aircon worked very well heating up the room just nicely to the temperature that i adjusted to.Shower had 2 modes...hand held /mounted and then there was a huge rain shower from the ceiling.Toilteries though were basic and of their own house brand.
The hotel is situated conveniently in the heart of downtown so its easy access to most parts of Beijing by underground train.Theres a few restaurants surrounding and a Walmart within a 5mins walk.Though the hotel is between 2 very busy roads i couldnt hear any traffic noise from outside.Rooms are well insulated and quiet.
This Sofitel hotel must be truly one of the best most comfortable hotels i have stayed in and certainly would recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful and Gigantic chandelier welcomes you to this hotel. Its well connected with two subway railway station close by.

Staff: Amazing and well mannered.... Every one right from the bell boy to housekeeping personal greats you with a smile. The staff at reception are never in hurry to attend other customer until you don't have any questions (100% satisfaction)
I stayed here in November and in December 2012, I did not find any difference in their service indeed second time it was much better.

Room: Very spacious room, every piece of furniture in the room does justice to itself and it's placed such that it provides good space. Bathroom has bathing area different from bathtub with dual shower facility hand shower as usual but Rain shower was something which I had never seen in Hotels. Housekeeping staff works well to ensure your rooms are cleaner than you would expect.

Internet: Is the only problem I had during my stay. It's dammmmm slow. I am sure this will be taken care as well.

Again blind shot when picking the place to stay and again such perfect shot. Sofitel Wanda Beijing made my and my friend stay not to be forgotten. Afterward I selected it to my personal top 10 so far being at more than 150 so far mostly 5 or 4 stars. Excellent service, excellent SPA,
breath taking hall and reception, spacey rooms classy desinged and decorated, such a comfy bathrooms, with toilet goods from Loccitane and finally BREAKFASTS. I have challenger any hotel I stayed since then providing such a classy bufet and there is hardly competition. Worth mentioning - very convinient location almost central Beijing. I was there three years ago in Sept'09.

The recipe is quite simple:
1. spacious, clean rooms with enough space and nice interior
2. friendly, helpful staff
3. good breakfast
4. quick check in/check out

On items 1-3, the Sofitel gets 'two thumbs up'. Especially loved the breakfast.
During busy times in the morning, the checkout can take a bit. That's pretty much the only flaw I could find.

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip. Room is nice but a bit small, location is god, 5 mins walk to Guo Mao subway station. Rates are reasonable.

The buffet breakfast is way above average, highly recommended to book at a rate with breakfast included.

Not much around, but taking a taxi around is easy.

Also, if you have friends coming to visit you, please advise them not to use the underground parking, the hotel cannot validate that.
