Sofitel Legend People's Grand Hotel Xian, Xi'an
A true 5-star hotel option in Xi'an
We loved the time we spent at the Legend People's Grand Hotel, not to be confused with the three other hotels that are part of the same compound. Although they are owned/operated by French group Accor, the People's Grand is their flagship property. To say the hotel is in perfect shape, would be an understatement. Styled after a French chateau, the building and rooms have been fully renovated. The hotel staff was attentive to every request, and the rooms did not miss a single detail. I have been to very few rooms where every single detail (from a French press coffee maker) to plush slippers and bathrobes was so thought of. If you are visiting Xi'an, the People's Grand will provide all the charm of a high-end French hotel with the service and kindness of its Chinese staff. Every afternoon, the hotel offers complimentary drinks and snacks in the beautiful bar. Also, if your visit to Xi'an includes a trip to the Terracotta Warriors, the concierge at the hotel can arrange a chauffeured car and guide at reasonable prices. The only (small) disappointment for us was the Chinese restaurant in the adjacent building, recommended by the concierge. In truth, high-end cuisine in Xi'an is limited, but we were hoping for expected a better experience from a 5-star hotel.

Excellent Stay in Xian
The Sofitel Legend is an excellent hotel and I would rank it among the tops I've stayed at including the Rtiz and the Four Seasons. The staff is extremely accomodating. Whenever I asked of anything in the room, they would immediately bring it to me within minutes. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Xian.

Not a good choice
Horrible experience at check in and rude, lackluster service at the breakfast buffet almost every day our stay. Worst of all--I had a massage/facial at the spa and now am experience an allergic reaction so severe that I have to seek medical attention.

Best Hotel Staff on the Planet
I am a frequent business traveler and I can honestly say that this little hotel in Xi'an has the best staff I have ever encountered anywhere in the world. Every employee we met made us feel welcome and several of them went above and beyond our expectations to help us plan tourist outings and plan our continuing travel in China. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the location is peaceful. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet, the free tai chi lessons in the courtyard every morning taught by one of the most lovely and graceful women I have ever seen, and a fantastic Italian dinner at the hotel restaurant. The hotel concierge helped us find our way to the Shaolin Temple and the Terra Cotta Warriors, both of which exceeded our expectations and were the highlight of our travels in China. Even if you have no sightseeing plans or other plans in the area, this hotel is perfect for a relaxing or romantic getaway.
