Sofitel Legend Peoples Grand Hotel Xian

Wrapped up in the rich heritage of Xi’an, this iconic hotel is well situated near to the ancient Muslim Quarter, Great Mosque and shopping and entertainment hubs.

Set within the old city walls, the Sofitel Legend Hotel was originally built in the 1950s as a government guesthouse but has since been carefully restored, retaining its elegant French and art deco features. Guestrooms and suites are beautifully appointed and feature ample-sized living areas, luxury bathrooms with walk-in showers, dark wooden flooring and soft, cream coloured furniture. Silk bathrobes, mirror TVs and LANVIN amenities provide the finishing touch. 

Authentic Italian cuisine is served at the hotel’s Dolce Vita restaurant, whilst the sophisticated 1953 lounge bar is the perfect spot for catching up over cocktails or afternoon tea. A fitness centre, sauna, Jacuzzi and spa complete the hotel’s range of leisure facilities. With its central yet peaceful location, the Sofitel Legend is the perfect base from which to immerse yourself in this fascinating city. Many top attractions are nearby, including the historic Muslim Quarter, Bell Tower and famed Terracotta Warriors.
