Sofitel Wanda Beijing

Location

So I am in Beijing and it proves to be a wonderful day. I am staying at the Sofitel Wanda in the Chaoyang district (which features many of the embassies, bars and a is a key part of Beijing’s CBD). It proves to be a very enjoyable stay!

Room

Bathroom

The bathroom is beautiful with polished dark cream marble and wonderful light wooden fixtures giving it an aura of decadence. I just fall in love with it straight away!

There is a deep spacious soaking tub which proves to the epitome of sensuous luxury!

A choice of a hand shower or rainforest shower is available for those who don’t have time to enjoy the bathtub!

Bedroom 

The bedroom is spacious with gorgeous plush carpets, a beautiful ottoman and sofa beside the bed and a expansive work table for those work-a-holics. IMG_1591

There is a clear glass window which allows you to see from the bedroom into the bathroom, although there is a motorised blind if you want some cover!

Lobby

The lobby is full of beautiful marble columns, oriental artwork and plush sofa furnishings from yesteryear. It is quite a treat to sit and enjoy a lovely lunch in a charming setting.

A Club Sandwich and a lovely glass of Chilean wine proves to be the perfect tonic for this lovely afternoon.

Breakfast

The buffet breakfast at the hotel is quite amazing with a fantastic spread of western and oriental variety to suit all palates.

I choose a classic East meets West Breakfast combination: Eggs Benedict with Tea Smoked Egg side, Chinese Dumplings with Chinese Pancake and Fruit Pastry and Cucumber Juice. The perfect sustenance for the day ahead!
