“The hotel is nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2010

The hotel is good and nice. The location is in the city center where travelers can get to hotel expediently. There are good facilities for visitors to use. The breakfast is nice. The room is spacious with diverse arts. There is one thing bad in this convenient hotel: the toilet. The water stuck in the toilet.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of our Chinese holiday and have to say its the best hotel in Xi'an! Location for me was perfect, close enough to walk into the main sites of Xi'an, yet far enough away from the crowds. Its prob a 10-15 minute walk to the Bell Tower but like most places in China extremely safe and welcomming.

Hotel looks impressive from a distance and interiior certainly didnt disappoint. We had the "wow" factor on entering the receptin area and we checked in extremely easily. We were upgraded to a suite that overlooked Renmin Square (basically chinese gardens with hotels). Rooom extremely spacious with separate bathroom/shower. Was perfect. Beautiful room and beautiful decor in the lift lobby aea and corridors.

We booked our trip to the warriors before leaving the UK through "wildbee" and was a fantastic day. Took taxi to Wild Goose Pagoda for night fountain show - cost about £2 max (and that was in heavy traffic). Well recommended

All in all I think this is the most impressive looking hotel in Xi'an. Great location and lovely staff - would definately stay here again if in Xi'an.

Great place to lay ones head after a day of Terra Cotta soldiers and other city sites

Within walking distance to the muslim area and the wild night market, also the Bell tower and the city wall

Be sure to rent a bike on the wall and biek the 13 klms around the city wall , as it was fun especailly with kids (bikes for 2) and a good form of exercise and offered different views of the city

Great breakfast

Great indoor pool (good size) and hot tub and staff

Family of 4 had to book 2 rooms

The Sofitel is an great option for Xian and visiting the Terra Cotta army.

The hotel is approximately 30 minutes from Xian airport. It is not centrally located in Xian which was a slight inconvenience. Renmin Square is a complex of hotels without any shops or restaurants so guests are more likely to eat at the hotel.

Despite the awkward location, the Sofitel Xian's staff were very helpful and most spoke English quite well. They were more than happy to arrange excursions. The hotel's have taxis on site. We were offered a free upgrade to a suite which was enormous and furnished to the highest quality.

The breakfast was great and we tried the Moroccan restaurant which was quality.

The best thing about the Sofitel is its facilities, it has a snooker room, gym, spa, swimming pool, table tennis. Whilst not the reason for visiting Xian, such facilities are handy when the sightseeing or heat becomes too much.

Overall, although its part of a chain, the Sofitel is probably one of the best, if not the best, hotel in Xian.

Given that this hotel is part of a chain, so the feel of the place is not especially Chinese, it is a relaxing place to stay. The room we had was enormous, and very comfortable with everything that you could possibility need. We ate in the restaurant one night and whilst the starters were good we felt that the main courses were not to the same standard.
We did enjoy staying in the hotel and felt the service was very good.

The Sofitel Xian on Renmin Squre has a strking modern design and provides excellent service along side outstanding facilities. The rooms are spactious and well furnished. Its one odd quirk is that the hotel has two wings that are only connected by an underground tunnel. I didn't have a problem with this but others may find it offputting. The restaurant has a superb buffet and the staff is very helpful.
