Sofitel Hangzhou West Lake, Hangzhou

Experiential | Very Good | Excellent | Magnificent | Out of this world


  • Near to the central business district and the Xihu Tiandi shopping and leisure complex
  • Bold scale and stately grandeur make the Sofitel the place to see and be seen
  • The perfect base for exploring Hangzhou’s West Lake


Located within walking distance of Hangzhou’s jewel - West Lake - Sofitel Hangzhou West Lake is a hub for both urban and rural exploration. Explore West Lake’s rolling verdant landscapes, artificial lakes and pagodas with scenic excursions by boat, or head for the countless shops and restaurants in Xihu Tiandi to get your retail therapy fix. The art museum and galleries are also within easy walking distance.


Return to your room for a bit of respite after all of your explorations, and enjoy your marble bathroom and rainfall shower. Many rooms boast views of West Lake, and all feature Hermès amenities for your sumptuous bathroom.

Indulge your taste buds however you see fit, choosing from either of the Sofitel’s two restaurants. Visit the international and Chinese buffet at Kwee Zeen, which combines local cuisine with the French traditions of wine and cheese, pastries and bread, all looking out onto the verdant plushness of the gardens through floor to ceiling windows.

Alternatively, visit Yong Jin Ge, on the hotel’s sixth floor, where superb views of West Lake are complemented by traditional Hangzhou cuisine. Yong Jin Ge also offers private dining rooms. For a lighter option, head for the rooftop bar Sky Garden, for French afternoon tea or a sunset aperitif, looking out over the stunning splendour of West Lake.
