Centrally located boutique hotel in historic section.”
Friendly hotel staff, they were quite helpful. Varying degrees of English, but translator apps work! Many different rooms. Ours had a mini fridge, seating area and queen sized bed. Modern spacious bathroom with rain shower. View of street, but not noisy. Plenty to see and door right nearby. Nice courtyard out front. Great bakery on the corner to the right. Subway very close. Starbucks next door but they are not open early! Breakfast at hotel eh, not so exciting.
Yellow brownish water, dirty and a bit of smell carpets, those pictures are not what you will see”
Water is yellow and brownish, called the hotel receptionist and they mentioned we are not the only one that encountered this situation and again saying that they are fixing the water heater, so there is a period of time that has no hot water, next morning even after fixing it the water still has colour, reported and said they are checking and fixing, went out, back to hotel in midnight and the water is still yellowish, reported again and they said it is due to sulphur and there will be no harm to us and i think the staff does not know what is in the water, she just say it is sulphur and will cause no harm. Immediately ask for refund for the rest of the days and check out in the middle of the night to look for another hotel as we do not want to risk showering and brushing teeth with that kind of water.
Quality Boutique Hotel”
The hotel is conveniently located near a subway station. The streets surrounding it is peppered with various eateries, snack house, 24/7 restaurants, and other food stalls. You will never end up hungry. Just bear with the scent emitted by a nearby stall (I think it sells stinky tofu, hence the repulsive smell) when walking towards the hotel. They provide free welcome drinks upon arrival. Options were brewed coffee, or hot tea. As to the room itself, it is spacious. Ours was located at the 4th floor. However, I think the hotel has thin walls, the room next to ours complained that our television was too loud (volume was at 25 only). The bed was huge, and they did invest with high quality linens. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here.
An easy living hotel”
The Sofu Hotel is located in a tourist area full of restaurants and small shops. You don’t have to go very far to get all you need. It is very close to the subway station which can access to nearly all major attractions. The room is cozy and clean. Front desk staff are helpful. We also get free bike rental from the hotel which really helped us to travel to all the nearby attractions.
They need to improve cleanliness issues ”
Very good service and will come again”
The staff were super kind and helpful. The toilet was clogged on the first day but the housekeeper helped to solve the issue promptly. She even left a spare toilet roll for me when she noticed the current one had almost been used up. A lovely luggage tag was given as a gift when check out. I will choose this hotel again. The air cons were not quite adjustable despite having two air con control panels, but a fan had been prepared for you to improve the ventilation or you could choose to open the window. The WiFi was poor though, no connection. The tap water was quite dirty on the first day, could see many suspended solids in water but the condition was improved after keeping the water running for several minutes. Overall, I enjoy spending my time in this hotel.
Overpriced, not a great room”
We struggled to find hotels in Beijing that offered a family room to suit all 4 in my family (two adults, two kids, 6 and 9), and Sofu came up as a reasonably priced option. I liked the location in terms of being close to the subway, and on a vibrant and culturally rich street. However the facilities left something to be desired. We stayed in the "Chinese Family" room, and the bathroom was pretty smelly, and had some sharp nails pointing out of the carpet that I snagged my foot on coming out of the bathroom. The ventilation in the room was terrible. It was incredibly stuffy, and I woke up many times because of this. I don't know how people would be able to stay there in the summer time. The mattresses were pretty thin for the kids beds. They slept OK, but I wouldn't have been able to sleep on them myself. One of the bright spots was the Hunan restaurant on the second floor. Food was great! Next time I would look elsewhere for a nice place to stay while visiting Beijing.
Good location, the hotel itself still need improvement”
The location is good, easily accessible to almost everywhere. However, the hotel itself still have room to improve. They gave us a room with a fixed piece of glass(not a window at all) which faces shopping mall's corridor. People walking there around look into our room like going to the zoo. We personally think they should not offer this room with the rate same as other room and should specified this inferior condition (we reserve two rooms and one in this condition). We dare bot draw open our curtain, so it basically a room without a window. Facility in the hotel is very basic, not with 4 stars standard.
Good location nearby Houhai lake. Staffs are very friendly and speak english. Room is clean
Great location! ”
We celebrated our anniversary here. Sofu hotel is a good choice because of quiet and accessible location. But it’s very hard to communicate with staff since most of them does not speak English. Thanks to jack and jaycee of the front desk as they speak very good english. When we checked in we had to wait for an hour since we were not given a room that we reserved. But we were just excited to be in Beijing that I didn’t mind. The next day they transferred us to the room that we had requested. Housekeeping did not clean well and I had to request for cleaning it all over again. Then it was all squeaky clean. Breakfast was not great... they repeated the same food everyday for the next 6 days. But nevertheless I will still choose sofu hotel if we visit Beijing again. Thanks sofu hotel
Nice room in a great hutong”
I spent 3 nights at Sofu Hotel and, when I first arrived in the busy hutong, I was worried about the noise, but it was quiet inside the hotel and I never heard a noise throughout my stay. The room was the perfect size for a solo traveler and very comfortable. Huguosi hutong is famous for its shops selling traditional snack street and the always packed Huguosi Xiaochidian (护国寺小吃店), located to the left of the hotel, should not be missed!
Spacious Room and near to PingAnLi Metro Station”
Stayed 4 nights and location is very good. Near to PingAnli Station and there are plenty of Beijing street food all around the vicinity of the hotel. Although the room floor is a little dusty, but given bathroom slippers for us, this is not a very big problem. Overall, we had a good stay.
A place for budget travellers”
Hotels in Beijing are known to be expensive and Sofu is considered one where you can still pay $100 per pax and less per night depending on the period you are travelling. The cleanliness of the hotel needs major improvement as there were hair in the toilet and smell from the carpet. The showering area and the toilet bowl were also chocked although the housekeeping managed to clear it upon our request. Kudos to the reception especially the morning shift who were very friendly and answered to most of our queries and also offered to change our room due to the carpet smell. The hotel is also a 5 min walk to Pinganli station (line 4) which is a direct line to Beijing south railway station. There are along many eateries along the street where the hotel is situated where you can grab breakfast/lunch/dinner. Overall, it is a good stay but not for travellers who are particular on the cleanliness of a hotel room.
Not Value For Money”
Quite disappointed there were no facilities as it was under renovation. Room and bed is big. Lightings can be improved as the whole room including toilet is very dim. Location is far from tourist attractions. The only plus point is that hotel is near subway.
Great location clean rooms”
My wife, three year old and I stayed here two nights and found it perfect to get to forbidden city. The subway is two blocks away and makes for easy transport. We went to Great Wall by subway and bus transportation is excellent. The hotel was clean and staff are very friendly. English for day staff is better than the night crew but we had no issues.
Excellent location and helpful staff”
Pros - staff were friendly, helpful and very efficient at check in, quickly arranged free storage for our bags for an extra half day, booked and tracked down our taxi to the airport. Location on a thriving walking street is excellent - lots to see, good places to eat (we found tasty vegetarian and vegan food quite easily). 10 mins walk from nearest subway station. 40 mins walk to the Forbidden City entrance. Cons - an early breakfast service would be a good addition (coffee shop opened too late for us).
It's pretty roomy and clean. My taxi driver didn't want to go into small street (Hugousi) because it was super crowded and congested during rush hour. But other than that, it was very close to subway station and all kinds of restaurants. Receptionists were very helpful to arrange taxi pick up service as well! Nice place!
Large clean rooms”
We stayed for 5 nights here on a room only basis. The room was very big, modern & very clean. It was a 2 min walk to the subway station, so ideal for traveling to all tourist attractions. Plenty of shops & restaurants nearby & a bar a few doors along selling a great selection of beers. The only negatives were no drinking water is provided or tea/coffee making facilities. Also, they have a parrot at the main entrance which is chained to its perch, which means it can’t move around. It was in the same position the whole time we were there. . I found this quite upsetting. On the whole, this is a very good hotel.
Sofu is really nice and tucked away down an interesting side street. There are some quite good restaurants close by and easy access to the underground. The staff are pleasant and they were reliable.
