Sofitel Legend Peoples Grand Hotel Xian
  • The most luxurious boutique option in Xian

  • 24hr Butler service provided for each and every room

  • Stunning design with a definite French flair

  • Incredible Italian restaurant, La Dolce Vita

This grand building is reminiscent of the spectacular Soviet Palaces of Russia, built to impress and display a sense of power and luxury. All the rooms are extremely spacious and enjoy high ceilings, elegant decor and original classical features. The Sofitel Legend is an intimate and charming hotel that would not feel out of place on a Parisian courtyard.

Located within the ancient city walls of Xian, the hotel is perfectly situated for easy access by foot to the main cultural sites of the ancient city of Xian including the Islamic Quarter, Wild Goose Pagoda and the ancient city walls.

As soon as you walk into this incredible hotel, you will be warmly greeted by your personal butler who will create an utterly seamless stay for you from start to finish. With a long and legendary history acting as Xian base to dignitaries across the globe for over 60 years from 1953, Sofitel Legend is well placed to continue as the most luxurious hotel in the city. Nowadays, the Sofitel Legend continues to treat all of its guests with the same personalized service enjoyed by the VVIPS of the 20th Century.

The hotel has a striking restaurant, La Dolce Vita, which offers authentic Italian cuisine. Alongside this there are two bars - the residential 1953 Lobby Lounge provides the perfect location for afternoon tea or cocktails while the smaller more exclusive Louis XIII Bar serves a collection of rare cognac and other special alcohols.
