Stayed here for two days for Business. Breakfast spread is amazing. The hotel staff is courteous even though they have difficulty in understanding & speaking English. They take an effort to understand you. Overall good for Business travelers

A former Sofital Hotel which shows and maintain s the 5 star experience. Service is great and responsive. The breakfast buffet is excellent and included in the room rate. Ask for rooms with the river few. Very spectacular and the evening lights rival HK,, Macau and Shanghai.

Good location, near to "everything". Staff quite friendly and helpful. Breakfast very good, mix of Asia-Western, so I think everybody can find something. Room ok, bed ok. Just stayed one night. Near to river, but other than that not much to see.

This Sofitel in Qingyuan is comparable to ather Sofitels in China, where I stayed so far. A very friendly check in. The room was clean and spacious. Nothing much to complain here, only that you could see already in some corners the age of this room. Still acceptable, but I have seen better. The restaurants are more or less standard:...

This hotel has 18 floors but only one of them, floor 16 - an executive level is designated non-smoking. When I first arrived I didn't know this. I said I wanted a non-smoking room. I went to my room and there was an ashtray. I returned to the front desk and they said they had called housekeeping. I returned to...

This is a very good Sofitel, especially for the price. In fact, it's typically equal to, or a bit cheaper, than some of the more down-at-the-heel local options. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and totally up to the Sofitel standard. The hotel itself is quiet - eerily so, in fact. It sometimes felt like the place was only 10% full. Not...

Sofitel (Qing Yuan) : When visiting Qing Yuan (China), Sofitel will have to be one of the most recognized hotel in town. The local hotels are cheaper, and many are very good but, with the Sofitel name...........you can expect only the best.
