My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel for 6 nights at the start of our 3 1/2 week trip to China. The Sofitel is a gorgeous hotel - very modern with all amenities on-site. The hotel is slightly out of the centre of Beijing but is in the CBD/Financial area. This was a little disappointing but everywhere in Beijing is so far away from everything else (the city is HUGE!) that you end up using taxis/metro anyway so it wasn't a problem for us.
The rooms were spacious (actually nicer than the Mandarin Oriental hotel we stayed in when we visited Tokyo, we have reviewed that too) with large beds, spacious bathrooms and everything you could need (safe, mini-bar, hair dryer etc). The gym and pool were lovely and rarely busy and the restaurant where we ate breakfast had a great spread with lots of Chinese and Continental breakfasts. There are also a few restaurants on-site as well as lovely bars, a hair dresser etc.
The room was a good rate at approx. £ 90 per room including breakfast - for this sort of price, the quality was fantastic.
The hotel also helped us with tours that we booked through them to the wall and with taxis as our language skills were limited. The staff were very attentive and helpful.
We would certainly stay at the Sofitel again and I would recommend this to travellers as a great hotel to stay in - it's luxury at an affordable price compared to the UK.
