“A uniquely welcoming Club Lounge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

A luxury hotel from which to visit the marvels of the Qin and Han Dynasties, with one of the friendliest and most accommodating Club Lounges in the Sofitel chain--or in any other one, for that matter!

Our rooms were lovely. The hotel's restaurants are delicious.

If possible, request a room in the East Wing, as it is more convenient to several amenities.

The concierge desk is extremely helpful, with excellent English speakers and friendly staff.

The staff was very welcoming and extremely helpful upon arrival. We were in need of a private car and the concierge immediately hooked us up and took care of all the details in a very professional manner.
The room was very clean and provided us with all the amenities that one would expect including internet service. Chocolate candy on the pillow at night was delicious and set the mood.
The restaurants were good and breakfast was fantastic. Everything one might enjoy or think of was available and of course the wait staff was very attentive and agreeable.
All in all this hotel was a very good choice and I commend my travel agent for the recommendation.

After a busy day of touristing in Xian, it is pure luxury to stay here. Skip the spendy breakfast and buy a half dozen humbao (stuffed puffy dumplings). We have stayed here twice and loved the comfortable suites of this modern hotel. So much to see and do in Xian, you feel like you are really in China with the walled city, diverse colorful markets, and temples. The terracotta warriors are amazing of course, but the museum near the airport where the smaller terracotta figures have been left in place is quite an amazing adventure too.

Located in the beautiful park-like setting of Renmin Square, the Sofitel is a glittering, well-run and highly polished hotel. Staff were among the best we encountered in China. We got upgraded to a huge suite with one of the largest beds I've ever seen. The bathroom was like a spa.

Since the property caters to both western and mainland Chinese guests, they have a strict non-smoking policy which was appreciated since it's hard to escape smoking anywhere in China. The hotel seems like it has two separately run towers, which gives it the right sense of scale.

Room Tip: We lucked out with a room upgrade. Be specific about your room needs especially if you're trave...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour - we wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is beautiful - and while it has two wings adjoined by an underground tunnel, the walk is not far and it is pleasant. The lobby bar in the one wing is very comfortable and has reasonably priced food and drinks. Staff were helpful and friendly.

The room was amazing - large, clean, with plenty of quality amenities.

This is a must stay at hotel if you are in Xi'an!

Good - v modern decor, spacious rooms, v helpful staff
Less good - hotel in two wings connected by tunnel underground of golf buggy outside we had to travel to other wing for breakfast and leisure centre which was a bit of a hike. Staff, although v helpful, did not have great English and hotel is really a taxi ride away from Muslim quarter /main sights and shopping (taxis are cheap though)
