“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2010

We loved Xian and would certainly stay at the Sofitel again. It is a safe bet. Very clean, and nice big rooms. No surprises here - what you see is what you get, nothing more nothing less. If you are doing a long tour of China it is very nice to have a comfortable hotel to return to at the end of the day.

We stayed at the Sofitel on Renmin Sq. for two nights during the Xi'an leg of our extended trip through China. Though a bit pricey, we decided to stay here as we had a difficult time finding a more affordable option in Xi’an that had basic western hotel standards. The hotel is really nice and well-kept. Staff was very professional and courteous. It’s located within the city walls in a hotel compound with some other luxury hotels – which gives a sense of safety and gated security, but also gives off an “isolated feeling” even within the city. There were no eateries within short walking distance, and thus we felt trapped dining at the on-premise restaurants which are expensive and don’t particularly give the best value for your money. In general though, if you’re stopping in Xi’an for a short stay and are looking for a nice, western-standard hotel, the Sofitel at Renmin Square is a solid option.

The hotel is good and nice. The location is in the city center where travelers can get to hotel expediently. There are good facilities for visitors to use. The breakfast is nice. The room is spacious with diverse arts. There is one thing bad in this convenient hotel: the toilet. The water stuck in the toilet.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of our Chinese holiday and have to say its the best hotel in Xi'an! Location for me was perfect, close enough to walk into the main sites of Xi'an, yet far enough away from the crowds. Its prob a 10-15 minute walk to the Bell Tower but like most places in China extremely safe and welcomming.

Hotel looks impressive from a distance and interiior certainly didnt disappoint. We had the "wow" factor on entering the receptin area and we checked in extremely easily. We were upgraded to a suite that overlooked Renmin Square (basically chinese gardens with hotels). Rooom extremely spacious with separate bathroom/shower. Was perfect. Beautiful room and beautiful decor in the lift lobby aea and corridors.

We booked our trip to the warriors before leaving the UK through "wildbee" and was a fantastic day. Took taxi to Wild Goose Pagoda for night fountain show - cost about £2 max (and that was in heavy traffic). Well recommended

All in all I think this is the most impressive looking hotel in Xi'an. Great location and lovely staff - would definately stay here again if in Xi'an.

Great place to lay ones head after a day of Terra Cotta soldiers and other city sites

Within walking distance to the muslim area and the wild night market, also the Bell tower and the city wall

Be sure to rent a bike on the wall and biek the 13 klms around the city wall , as it was fun especailly with kids (bikes for 2) and a good form of exercise and offered different views of the city

Great breakfast

Great indoor pool (good size) and hot tub and staff

Family of 4 had to book 2 rooms
