The check in and out is efficient and the rooms are spacy and confortable, equipped with every amenity I expected. The LAN connection was fast. The breakfast was good. The selection of food includes items to attact every possible taste.

The room (4041) was reasonable clean with the exception of the bathroom, where brown spots stained the white marble behind the toilet. There was a lot of black mold arround the shower and the sink. Other guests reported of the same conditions in their bathroom. The floor was found dustfree but dirty as if it had been cleaned with dirty water.

The balcony door had both a sign to keep it closed against insects and a gap of about 5 mm against the frame to let them in even with the door closed. Had trouble falling asleep due to mozzies flying near my ear and woke up in the middle of the night with my hands itching and swollen up from bites ( - in december!).

Just spent three nights at this Sofitel between Nov 14 to 17. The exterior of the hotel is quite grand. Tne interior doesn't disappoint either. However, the maintenance of the hotel seems to be below par. The toilet in our room was plugged once. The door to the shower doesn't fit tightly so it was a challenge to try to keep water inside the stall. I ended up mopping the floor twice. One wouldn't expect to experience this type of set back if this were a five star hotel in North America.

As the hotel is not in the city center, my husband and I had dinner at the hotel for 3 nights. Our first dinner was at the Chinese restaurant. We were not amused when we found out that the kitchen ran out of quite a few items listed on the menu. For our second and third nights, we had dinner at the restaurant where buffer is served daily. The service was very good and the waitresses were very friendly. The food was on the expensive side ( for China ). I had a very simple salad with Cajun chicken and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food.

The hotel is situated in the Purple Mountain area. The surrounding is very pretty and the air quality is top notch, all reminded me of home ( Canada ). I played two rounds of golf, which was the reason I picked this hotel to start with. The course is very well maintained and pretty. I didn't enjoy the pace of the game on the first day. The marshals hustled us twice. We ended up finishing our round in 3.5 hours, which was too quick considering we weren't familiar with the course. The next day I picked an after lunch tee time and the pace was a lot more comfortable. When we checked out on Thursday morning, I saw a lot of locals checking in for golf. Therefore, try to avoid golfing between Thursday and sunday unless you love crowds and thunderous pace.

I will likely return to this resort for golf. Hopefully, the spa and one of the currently under repair golf courses will be open to the public by then.

I spent two nights on my own in this hotel for business meetings in Nanjing. It is located in Zhongshan, so it takes around 20-30 minutes to city/downtown. And more than 75 minutes to Nanjing airport.

Room is spacious, clean and comfortable. Only one issue is the bed is not comfortable enough considering it is a 5 star Sofitel! Room service is not fantastic either... I had the beef noodle (it's chef recommendation), onion soup and tiramisu. Only the tiramisu is up to standard. Again, quite disappointed as it is a 5 star Sofitel!...

There isn't much to do within the hotel, unless you are there for golf playing. The spa isn't opened till 2012 (another disappointment!)

However I am going to stay there again if I happen to be in Nanjing. It smells lovely when you walk in (very rare for a hotel in China!) because they are burning scented candles everywhere. They also greet you with really delicious macaroons at the reception.

I spend one night with my family in this hotel and was very disappointed. According to the website, it is an hotel in a green environment and we were therefore expecting to be able to enjoy walk in a park. Actually, we were not aware that even though it is surrounded by a golf, there is no green area where you can walk on, which we found astonishing. There is no garden in this hotel. You are not allowed to walk around the golf. If you try to walk around the golf, the staff will jump on you. It is located near zhongshan park, but there is no way to access to this park, except if you take your car. Dont expect any taxi to come and pick you since it is very far from downtown.
In other words, if you play golf, it is probably worth staying there, otherwise, no way, there is nothing to do there and actually, hotels in downtown do have gardens that you can enjoy !

That was an excellent stay at this Sofitel, perfectly located outside the city in a green environment, surrounded by the golf course.
Room (basic one) was great!
Facilities included pool, tennis, video games, DVD, etc...
Buffet for breakfast & dinner was very good, maybe could be improved some more.
I would recommend to anybody & we plan to come back within 3 months
