“Very good hotel”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

The hotel is a very good hotel. However, the location is not so good. It is not near a underground railway station in a city like Guangzhou where traffic jams is one of the major problems. There are shopping malls in the area but they are not nearby that are accessable in walking distance from the hotel. If the hotel is near the underground railway network which is well developed in Guangzhou, it will be of much more convenience to the guests of the hotel.

We were lucky enough to stay in this hotel for two nights, it is a beautiful hotel with great ammenities. My dad let us know that this hotel was pretty new, and judging by the rooms, it definitely does seem like a new hotel. There is a sleek bathtub in the bathroom, and the bathroom has auto blinds that you can control on the light power on and off switches. The shower has a rain shower head option. The gym and pool are very nice, if you stay here, I would defnitely recommend using the pool and gym ammenities! I would love the opportunity to stay at this hotel again!

Unfortunately I would not say that our hotel was really close to anything, but taxis are fairly cheap there so we took taxis everywhere.

I stayed in this hotel for one night on a business trip. It is an absolutely beautiful hotel both inside and out. We received free upgrades to Club Sofitel rooms, excluding lounge access. However, as we arrived at 8pm, it didn't matter as "happy hour" had already finished.

We didn't eat at the hotel as we wanted to have a quick walk around the city and had dinner at the nearby Wunderbar Bavarian bar. A great choice at it turned out as the food was excellent.

Room Tip: I don't think it's possible to get a bad room in this hotel!

On a recent business trip I had the pleasure of experiencing this amazing hotel for one night. Absolutely amazing and the best I've stayed at in China. Opened in April the immense lobby is decked out in classy art work, sculptures, flowers in a red/black/white theme which is continued in the rooms. The centerpiece of the hotel room is a free standing porcelain bathtub complete with bath salts in lovely small pottery bowls. You will sink into the beds and not want to leave your room.
The breakfast buffet included with most room rates is ample, fresh and delicious. We sampled the dinner buffet as well. Too many choices to list but fresh sushi, pasta cooked on site, roasted meats, vast assortments of desserts and even homemade crepes are just some of the many items to enjoy. This is one classy retreat in a very interesting and growing city. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Simply fantastic in every respect.

The hotel is centrally located and also very close to Pazhou convention center. It is beautifully furnished. Staff is very helpful and perfectly English speaking. Beds and shower are wonderful. Spa, swimming pool and gym make your stay really enjoyable. And price is really convenient for the kind of service offered. I loved it and I will definitely be back.

The new Sofitel has beautiful decors and nice rooms, but the level of finishing and construction is very bad. They will have a lot of problems within a few years time...
There are a few restaurants at the hotel and a nice lobby bar. All of them were not open yet, but we did try the Japanese restaurant and it was ok, but nothing special. Staff there was European, very friendly and efficient.
Most of the other hotel staff are locals and they speak very poor English. It is quite difficult to get anything done or explain anything to them as they simply don't understand. The staff at the Club Lounge don't seem to be very experienced in hospitality and hotel operations, as it was a struggle every time we went for breakfast or evening drinks. They simply don't know what to do and how to act, and they don't understand nor speak English. It was quite frustrating...
The spa is wonderful, but the staff don't really speak any English. They have a European spa manager. I booked a massage and it was ok, but again nothing exceptional. The gym and pool are adjacent to the spa and both are indoor.

The service is lacking the wow factor that a 5 -star hotel staff should master. Hopefully they will improve...

Room Tip: Club Room with access to club lounge

This was about a month or two since hotel was open for general public. All is very new and clean. Everyone is extremely friendly and nice. Located right in business district, so most of the days I just walked to the office for about 10 min, which was absolutely great. Breakfast was excellent. Room was big, clean, and modern. Sometimes had a problem with getting a taxi outside (especially when it rained), but never waited more than 10 min or so. Defenetely will return there if ever again in Guangzhou.
