After quite some time another visit to this nice place. May it be business of private trip, always recommendable. For business a good location to anywhere in the city. Good meeting facilities. For private trips an excellent starting point for walks along the lake, cycle tour around the lake, walking to the shopping area or to intime shopping mall. General:...

A really nice property right across the road from the lake, with very friendly staff - special mention must be made of Ms Aitara Pardo Angueira for her help. Great breakfast buffet and really good value. Highly recommended.

The hotel was renovated on 2014 and...

Have been travelling around China for almost three weeks and this was my first taste of gluten free bread in all that time. The staff were wonderfully helpful and also prepared a lovely grilled salmon dinner totally gluten free. Room was luxurious. Three cheers for the Sofitel.

Just return from a 3 nights stay in Easter. Everything is great with heaps of smiling faces welcome you. Spacious, clean and tidy room. Buffet breakfast full of choices. Location is the best, we only walk to nearby attractions during our stay. Westlake, Hefeng Street, Yintai Department Store all within 15 minutes walk. To my big surprise the hotel management...

We stayed here twice during our recent China trip. The first check in was just one night stay on the day we arrived at late evening. With prior arrangement, managers/staffs of Sofitel had kindly helped me to receive our train tickets from tour operators for us to catch a train first thing in the morning to Tunxi. Great service.
