Sofitel Chengdu Taihe5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We had 2 visits to this hotel, and were not disappointed. The entrance is grand, spacious and impressive. Our first visit was in a standard room which was spacious and comfortable, but as a previous reviewer has pointed out, the hanging space and drawers were limited. But there was space. The bathroom was also spacious and very well fitted out, lovely tiling, great power shower and roomy bath. During both our stays the breakfast was top notch, with a tremendous variety of both local and western style food. Service was also very good with the staff attentive at all times. Our second visit was even better as we up graded to a suite. This was something to behold, 2 bathrooms, large living room, business desk, large wall TV, settee and chairs. Bedroom had another large wall mounted TV, extremely comfortable bed and everything one could wish for including plenty of hanging space and drawers. Well done Sofitel.
It is interesting that I came off from a cruise ship just before staying at this hotel, and there was more useable space on the cruise ship than in this hotel room. The actual size of the room is good, but so poorly designed that there was no space for anything. Instead of having sufficient closet space for hanging clothes, the room has no space for clothes but has a large mirrored area for a useless vase that is not even very decorative. There is hardly any drawer space for storage. Hair dryer is placed in the bathroom where the electrical outlets are for shavers only.
A quick one night stopover.Clean, tidy and quiet,. Impressive public areas. The breakfast was appetising and varied. The breakfast service was little crowded as there were a couple of coach parties in but the staff coped well.
Spent 2 nights at this fine hotel. The lobby was very large and inviting. The front desk staff very courteous. Did have language challenges with the concierge staff. The room was very nice with a large bathroom and plenty of room. The breakfast had a lot of options and was nice. They had a bag breakfast for us to take on the second day when we had to leave very early in the morning.
Just stayed the one night. Good location, short walk to the shops etc. Hotel, room and restaurant was everything we expected. Free wifi. Good buffet breakfast and we were overall satisfied with our short stay.
We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed staying there very much. The place was very clean and we had a view of the river and overlooking the pool. The room was very roomy and clean. There were 2 bottles of water each day for us to have for free. I really enjoyed the breakfast buffet as it felt that they had a good selection of both Asian and western foods available. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only issue we ran into was we have some clothing cleaned and there were many extra charges on the cleaning bill. I asked at the counter about them and were informed that you have to read the fine print. I paid the extras and did not worry about the issue any more. I think you will enjoy staying here.
Great hotel, breakfast and service. Pros: overall staying experience Cons: Single bed instead of super single - Uncomfortable when turning Great location - nearby to pub street / shopping district. Definitely worth your money!
We stayed in the Sofitel Chengdu as a family of 3 for 2 nights. It was in a good location. Close to the airport, just a 10-15 minute walk from IFS a huge shopping centre and only about 10-30 minutes from the main tourist attractions. It has a lovely little river opposite which you can walk along at night where you can find the locals dancing. Comfortable room, nothing special but absolutely perfect for a couple nights stay. Didn't try the restaurants but had the breakfast. Like all hotels we have stayed in in China, they had a array of cereals, pastries, hot Asian and western foods so certainly something for everyone. Out of all the hotels I've stayed in during my China travels this hotel doesn't have many staff that speak any English. Now I'm not the type of person to complain at that as I truly believe if you go to another country you should at least try to speak some of their language. However just pointing out it was quite difficult to communicate with most members of staff.
Was there for 5 days with my parents, spouse and daughter. Was really impressed with the service staff especially the restaurant captain Winney and her staff. They were friendly, welcoming, attentive and proactive. Even the chef at the noodle station was endearing and very accommodating. From check-in to checkout, the service experience was professional and polite. The front lobby was majestic and we also enjoyed the breakfast. Definitely enjoyed my stay. Keep it up!
Location is fine, not far from the city center. Metro station is 5 minutes away but taxis are cheap in Chengdu. Honestly I never expected Sofitel to be so inexpensive. This is indeed a luxury hotel though with Chinese flavor. Nice spacious room, large and comfortable bed. Well designed bathroom with bathtub and separate shower. Working air conditioning. View from my room on 19th floor wasn’t as breathtaking as advertised – a building site for a new skyscraper. Staff did they best to help but with limited English that wasn’t efficient. Didn’t have time to use restaurant, gym or swimming pool. WiFi stopped working in my room on the second day; wired LAN connection was still working fine. I wasn’t aware that hotel requires you to pay 1000 RMB deposit upon arrival, they supposedly return it to your credit card after you leave. Seems this is common practice with hotels in China. Price/quality ratio is very good though.
