With its sparkling exterior, you can’t miss this hotel at night. Inside, light remains a major theme; the lobby’s huge color-changing crystal chandelier blends the French fleur-de-lis with the kapok, Guangzhou’s floral emblem. Ruby-red lacquered vases, lampshades, chandeliers and flowers add daring accents throughout.
Bed and Bath
With upholstered headboards, framed photographs (black-and-white, with a splash of red), rich fabrics and sculptural furniture, the guestrooms have a distinctly Parisian vibe — especially with poetic phrases woven into the carpet. Luxuriate in Sofitel’s signature MyBed. The bathrooms feature a deep tub and separate shower; the toiletries come from Hermès.
Le Grill is as upmarket as steakhouses come — think ultra-prime cuts seared on an Argentine-style grill. Near the lobby the Mar-Tea-Ni Bar’s tea sommelier can recommend a specialist brew; those who require something stiffer can try tea-inspired cocktails. The nail bar offers champagne along with manicures and pedicures.
In the Area
Tianhe is home to Redtory — an art and design center in what was once Asia’s largest canned-food factory. Towering, twisted Canton Tower is colloquially known as Xiao Man’s Waist — a reference to a svelte Tang dynasty geisha. Head to its observation deck — 1,500 feet aboveground — for a bird’s-eye view of this sprawling Pearl River Delta metropolis or to use the lofty post office. Bubble cars circumnavigate its roof. Wander the tree-lined, sculpture-filled avenues of colonial Shamian Island; its charm makes it a popular backdrop for wedding and fashion photographs.
How to Get There
Beautiful & very clean room with great design and decorations.
The only thing that should be improved is the service center operator! Most of the time when I was calling the center, I had a lot of difficulties communicating with them. Thanks
The club was great. The food was wonderful. Tracy Lu was at our service . She is wonderful at customer service and very good at giving advice. The vibe in the club is very great. The views are very nice. I highly recommend the place for everyone to come and enjoy their time.
The room is really spacious and comfortable. There's also a business table to work.
Bath tub, toilet and shower areas are all separated which is really good.
I especially love their wide variety breakfast selection and glad that it is very close to our office within 10 min walking distance. The hotel assistant helped us to call taxi even it is very close.
It was a great experience to stay at Sofitel Guangzhou. The room was really luxurious and food was really nice. The staff and their hospitality was just remarkable specially their guest relation officer Ms Evgeniia who always asked me if I had any problems in my stay and was so kind to me during my stay..I highly recommend to stay here whoever wants to stay in the tianhe district.
