“Old Towels...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Stayed 3 nights as part of the Uniworld China tour. We had a great stay in this nice hotel. The room was very modern and spacious, Service was excellent by all the staff (from the front desk to the bell boys).

The included breakfast buffet was very good (comparable to other hotels in major Asian cities) with a wide variety of western and Chinese offerings to chose from, although it hardly changed from day to day.

The location was good with various shops, food and Walmart next door. I was told that the subway stop is also close by. Even though it is next to a major road, the rooms were very quiet.

The main reason for a very good (instead of excellent) rating is "old towels". The bath towels in our room, although very clean, had frayed edges. Just did not expect this from a 5 star hotel in China's premier city.

Stayed in June 2013 for 3 nights in Sofitel Wanda Plaza.in Beijing. The booked Junior suite was very spacious and well equipped and made a really great impression.Only closet stowage was limited, and as usual in all hotels I know the space for putting luggage was not sufficient. A minus is the water supply in the morning: Temperature changed unexpectedly during taking a shower in the morning. Civil engeneer tried to fix but not really successful. For my taste the bed was too hard. Staff was very helpful and put in an additional Duvet, but not really good for me.Rest was w/o any complaint.
Highly to appreciate is the location very close to a metro station.. Beijing suffers lack of taxis esp. at peeak times in the morning and evening as well permanet traffic jams. Metro is fast and reliable and in 2 Minutes you are in the station! Very convenient is also Lounge service for breakfast and any break. Decent atmosphere gentle service, delicious food.

Great experience in this 5-star luxury hotel. Everything was just perfect. Starting with a huge breakfest buffet, very nice and highly professional staff reading the wishes from your eyes! Rooms are very big, modern and have very nice bathrooms. Good beds for a deep sleep and also very quiet. Very nice about this Hotel in a french style is, that you get this touch from France. Always (unfortunately always the same) french music in the lobby, nice bread, french cheese and croissant and a lot more to offer. The design of the interior is always really special and nice to see. As the rooms are very high it creats a fantastic atmosphere.

Room Tip: Rooms are all very nice. But be aware of the "illegal" taxis from the airport

Beijing is a cultural shock to the system. The Sofitel Wanda provides you with the comfort and confidence required in such a city. Beijing is not pretty so the hotel is just another high rise in a sea of concrete. However, the interior is beautiful and really 5 star. Our bedroom was lovely with a very large and extremely comfortable bed. The bathroom was excellent and the room well air conditioned. It has the sexiest hotel swimming pool I have ever seen! The staff are exceptional. This hotel is very well run. They organised a car & driver for us as it soon became clear on day 1 that using a taxi in Beijing is not an option. Nothing was too much trouble. We met the hotel and area manager who were charming and professioanl.
A word of warning. Food and drink in the Sofitel is very expensive. We crossed the road and visited the excellent Chinese Restaurant opposite. Very good Peking Duck. The breakfast buffet is very eastern orientated and not really my scene, but most people appeared to be enjoying it. I would however strongly recommend this hotel.

We were in town for spouse's work. The hotel was fabulous. The front desk staff spoke English very well, which helped us out. Restaurants were pricey, but expected in a business-type hotel. Plenty of other restaurants within walking distance though. Wouldn't change a thing about it.
