“Overpriced but great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

I felt like I was in a Hemingway novel when I entered this bar. Ambiance is good, but in a city where I can get US$0.20 beers, paying US$15 for one cocktail is crazy. And there's no free WIFI in public areas! It's 2014 - get connected, Sofitel!

“Very good bar with a secret place underneath”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

We had pre-dinner drinks here on two evenings prior to dining. Great location and very good service.
If you are staying at the hotel, then don't miss the piece of history which was re-discovered when the bar was built.

Nice pleasant space inside and out with friendly staff. Reasonable menu and good space if you get the right table.

“Delightful compliment to amazing hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

A throwback in time but with all the modern comforts. From monogrammed blankets to attentive staff, loaner library to lush decor I could spend days here. Hibiscus tea was the takeaway and even during a cold damp week this place felt as cozy and classy as could be.

“One of my all-time favorite bars....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

I love this hotel and the bar. It allows the visitor to relive past times. The history of this hotel is one of the most colorful in all of Asia and truly worth a visit to have dinner or a drink. We spent New Year's Eve here and had a wonderful time.
