We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. When we arrived the room was not ready and we were invited to the club lounge for free drinks which was very comforting. Once the room was ready the front desk attendant very kindly came up to the lounge to accompany us to the room. Overall the staff was super friendly and the breakfast and dinner buffets were vast and good quality. Room was very nice, clean and comforting. The gym was a bit small everything was there. The spa was ok also. Overall we had a good stay aside from the rain! Thanks Sofitel

While the staff are clearly still learning, this truly is a beautiful hotel in a great location inside the wall in XiAn. We were upgraded to a once bedroom suite which was indulgent and had a great view of the courtyard. I am sure Sofitel will sort out the bugs with their staff and offer a truly memorable experience in Xian.

Disappointed. On late arrival we were switched from our designated hotel building no apology no explanation. The carpet was dirty the phone did not work. On arrival at breakfast we had to wonder around to find a table. Having to ask for more so called complimentary water was demeaning and the front desk attitude was lacking. Having been to China 6 times and dozens of cities my summary is a second rate hotel with poor service standards try the
Marriott in Shanghai to see what real service is.

Nice position, set back from the road, with its two wings. Good breakfast and nice sized rooms. Window left open by staff during the day led to mosquitoes in the room at night, not what you'd expect from this level of hotel.
Swimming pool was not as clean as we would have liked, and the dryer for the swimming trunks didn't work.
Service was generally good though and the staff were friendly and helpful.

We were in the club room which was great. As per other hotels in China, the service is poor. I believe it is due to inadequate training as the staff are out of there depth. A new lady in the club lounge was by herself and could not speak English - not a clever idea by hotel management. Once we communicated we wanted gin and tonic she did not know how to make. Not her fault but that of the management.

excellent location. good walking hotel. the staff was quite helpful in arranging a drive to take us to several historic sites. I found the breakfast delicious, and a nice variety. the rooms were spacious and very comfortable. the spa was very nice, and the staff were very friendly. one night my room did smell of sewer gas, otherwise the stay was excellent.
