“Very good, almost new, central, but not cheap!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

I have stayed in six hotels in Guangzhou. This is the best central hotel I have stayed in.
45 minutes from the airport, but I needed a hotel car. Cost? £60. Wow, thats rich!
Very good location in the middle of the CBD. The hotel was built just a couple of years ago and it is an iconic building in its district.
I had a superior room. This was large and luxurious. Great oval bath- I love a good soak in a bath. Very comfortable bed, good quality coffee. They provided very delicious chocolates and fruit on the first night. Overall all very good, it does feel easy to relax there.
Staff are well trained, courteous and take the trouble to do what you want. I had to use the Business Centre to send a letter to the UK. It was all done in just 10 minutes, but it cost £25 ! Wow, thats richer.
The breakfast is excellent. Proper sausages, Wow, thats great. Efven the bacon is almost correct. Just about worth staying here for the breakfast alone.

Overall a lovely place to stay in Guangzhou. I would be very happy to return if and when I am rich enough!

The room layout, size & quality was very good & impressive, but service seems not consistent, first night there was choc serving on the table, and didn’t see that the second night. If that’s one night only service, should put something there say “Welcome Sweet Only”, so customer wouldn’t disappoint the next day.

Rather than that, was a very pleasant stay.

This is a really good hotel. I stayed in a Luxury room and the room was clean and very big with excellent view on 25th floor. Big and comfortable beds, LCD tv also in bathroom mirror. Service in this hotel is very good. And breakfast with many choices. Will stay here next time im in Guangzhou. Top Class hotel!!!

We stayed at the hotel for three nights after 10 days golfing in China. The hotel is very new and the room and hotel facilities are fantastic. The rooms were spacious and had everything you could need including free wi-fi, all the cables for connecting computers and cameras to the tv,little extras like white-out and eraser on the desk and very elaborate controls for curtains and lighting. The hotel pool,gym and spa area were extensive and the pool had piped music in the water. We had not been to Guangzhou previously but were able to see many of the city sights thanks to the help offered by the reception and concierge staff. We would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel on further visits to Guangzhou as it is certainly the best Sofitel we have visited in Asia

Room Tip: We paid extra to join the Club Millesime which gave us rooms on the top floors and access to the Clu...
