One night stay with our two boys (3&5yrs old). We stayed in a king room overlooking the beach area, room was nice and we had a rollaway bed that was fine.

We had dinner at Fukami, which was adequate...brunch (booked separately)...

Sofitel Sheshan is a nice hotel. The hotel staff are helpful and attentive. The rooms are nice. The resting areas are spacious. Food in the restaurants is good, although ideally choices for restaurants could be more. Overall experience is excellent.

Sofitel has taken what is a typically overdeveloped Chinese resort and added Sofitel touches that stand out in many areas. The lobby, front desk, main dining area, and rooms are impeccably designed in a way that allows one to relax and get ready for the day ahead. Service at the front desk was good. Areas for improvement include staff who...

Used to be a very popular and good hotel. However, shocked by the room facility this time. See pictures. Room condition including bath room is not good. Very disappointed. It looks like a 3 star hotel. Breakfast area very crowded as usual and not pleasant. Last one, people smoking in public area. Bellman service OK.
