I just spent 1 Night in a Club Room of the Sofitel Humen and would have loved to give 5 Points (in fact i would give 4 1/2 if i could).
The Hotel is a impressive landmark itself with its 60 floors which of course offer a very nice view especially from the Club Lounge or the Breakfast Cafe. The front desk staff and overall staff of the hotel was well trained and spoke reasonable English!
The Room was spacious and the interior design very taste full. The shower had good pressure but water would rinse into the bathroom every time you take a shower. I have seen this in many hotels but nevertheless its something that could be taken care of. Room WiFi did not work on the first day but maybe that was just a glitch as it was on full strength on the 2nd day.
The Club Lounge extremely nice (the complete 59 Floor) and a place you could easily spent the whole day. The staff was very attentive and professional. The choice of drinks and canapes was also good especially for my sweet tooth. What I really missed however was at lease one warm dish freshly prepared like Pasta, Burger, Steak Sandwich. I am normally used to that in an Executive Lounge during Happy Hour. Also please for the love of god get espresso cubs instead of serving espresso in a normal coffe cup ;).
The breakfast this morning was a little disappointment. The staff acted a little unprofessional, there was still cleaning going on even though it was already 9:30am and in general everybody seemed to be in a lazy mood (maybe because of Chinese New Year). As a westerner i was a little (really only a little) disappointed by the lack of pancakes or waffles however I can understand that a hotel in Humen is targeting a more Chinese clientele and therefore changes the menu a bit toward Chinese food as i know Chinese are a bit inflexible when it comes to their food :).
Overall a very enjoyable experience and I will definitely come back!
