China / Sofitel Legend, Peoples Grand Hotel

Sofitel’s first Legend hotel in China is a blend of French and Sino-Russian styling; authentic local decorative touches complete the impressive effect.

Opened as a State guesthouse in 1953 it has been sumptuously re-imagined to provide elegant accommodation, elaborate mouldings and distinctive Art Deco features. Favoured haunt of many Chinese leaders and royalty it offers an enticing diversity of culinary attractions, the Dolce Vita restaurant having a wood-fired pizza oven and serving fabulous
Italian delights accompanied by Italian cocktails. Meet up on the intimate terrace for a romantic candlelit diner overlooking the gardens. For Asian and Western snacks or timeless afternoon tea, the Lobby Lounge is a popular rendezvous. Enjoy a revitalizing massage after seeing the city’s sights. The hotel is close to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda as well as being a forty five minute drive from the Terracotta Warriors.
