Sofitel Hotels have long been a gay-favorite brand, standing out thanks to their young, fresh approach to hotel design and their first-rate amenities. Sofitel Beijing is no different, and this alone will be enough to convince many gay travelers to the city.
As usual with Sofitel, you can expect colorful, contemporary decor that ranges from luxury to extravagant. Think huge beds, mood lights, giant sumptuous rugs, gold accents, and huge jacuzzi-style tubs. Several rooms also have huge wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows, making them exceptionally airy and impressive.
There is a luxury spa and beautiful fitness facilities with majestic city views. Two restaurants cater to all your Chinese and Western food needs, and the two lounge bars are the perfect place to start out a night of classy cocktail-sipping.
The only downside for gay visitors is the location. As it is based in Chang'an, the nightlife of Sanlitun is just slightly outside of comfortable walking distance. However, a short 15-minute taxi ride is enough to get you to Destination Club and Sanlitun Bar Street. Besides, the location has other benefits: there is a metro station nearby, and Beijing Railway Station is just 20 minutes away on foot.
