Rooms smell of smoke even when asked for non smoking. Lobby unimpressed and looks dated like rooms. Bed hard. Hotel smells of Chinese food. All of these comments have been mentioned by other guests. Lucky I stay here one night otherwise would leave.

The location is a little far form the metro station, but you can still get to there by public bus or taxi easily as the hotel is quite near to the main railway station. The room is spacious and comfortable, i enjoyed this stay and i was also surprised by the moon-cake and fresh fruit prepared by the hotel. The... More

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times this year with work. They have a great buffet breakfast with very helpful staff. In fact the staff in checkin and concierge are very knowledgable and their command of English is ok and constantly improving. This hotel is maturing nicely. It's location is not central but with cabs or uber, and the... More

After previous trips to Nanjing and staying in the horrible Holiday Inn, Sofitel was a welcome refuge! Clean and luxurious, it was a good option for a business trip. Service was good, breakfast buffet had enough options although it was nothing outstanding. Location was good for my needs, and there was a Starbucks next door which is perfect for me... More

Ingenious floor plan. It puts the bathroom between the entry door and sleep area; minimizes the noise from the doorway, leaves wall of windows for a great view. High quality decoration and placement of furnitures with darker color coordination quiets you down and soothes the sense. Calming and restful.

I am now a regular visitor to this hotel whenever I have meetings in Nanjing, and this time the restaurant was back to its usual high standards, with an excellent range of choice for breakfast, and a fine standard of cuisine for the all-day a-la-carte menu. The security cards for the lifts and room were rather awkward to use but,... More

This hotel was outstanding in every way. Absolute luxury! Breakfast included-one of the best all you can eat breakfasts ever and we have travelled widely. Service and accommodation all brilliant! About a 30 minute walk from the nearest Metro station is the only drawback.

Tried to find some certainty in the brand but failed…First night the thermostat inside the room had no effect on the temperature (it seems there is some central heating system in place - then why bother installing room thermostats?).
