Stayed at this property and really liked it. When arrived at the reception. I was greeted by the English speaking French team who recognised that I would be entitled to an upgrade and promptly did so. Well done. Shortly after i arrives in my room. A welcome drink and snack was delivered to me. Very impressed. I really love the fact that there is a team of French staff at the hotel . Let's be honest, there is still room for improvement in china in regards to customers service, sometimes their English may not be the best.
The room itself is big, nicely decorated as you would expect in the Sofitel style. Large LCD TV. Free coffee, tea and water.
It's situated close to the Guangzhou East station. Just a 5 minutes taxi ride.
Breakfast has a large selection of pastries, cakes, fruits and the usual stuff you will find in a European hotel. There' are 3 sections of different types of breakfast. Continental, Chinese and mixture of South East Asian food. The European style food was fine but that is a big BUT, the Chinese food was very disappointing. If it has been the other way round I would not have been so disappointed. After all, we are in China. One would expect the Chinese food would be a lot better. They need to improve that and I passed the comments into them.
All in all, wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and hope the food would be better the next time.
