    We loved the room--very large with a fully-equipped kitchenette. The bathroom was modern and clean. The front desk staff was friendly and responded to our requests immediately. The internet didn't work well on our smartphones, and the staff was most helpful with our critical tech needs. There is a courtyard and large lobby area for breakfast (we did not have breakfast at the hotel). It was a relaxing area.

    Our only negative for Hotel Sofia is that there is no lift. They are in the midst of a major renovation, so perhaps in the future there will be one available. Overall, it was a great stay!

    convenient location for travel in and out of Paris; interesting area; close to Montmartre

    very steep stairs for carrying heavy cases

  • Family with children

    Location was great. Right at the base of Montmartre climb up to Sacre Coeur, near the somewhat dodgy Barbes Rochechouart Metro station, not near Moulin Rouge porno district, near best baguette in Paris 2011 (can't remember name of shop). Staff were pleasant, eager to please. Very clean room, great shower: I was not expecting this. Kitchen was passable, couldn't really cook, just make sandwiches and coffee etc.

    Well, it was very noisy. I can't blame the Hotel, but the inter-room noise was substantial. If you are the one who will make the noise this place will appeal to you.If you want to sleep, maybe not so much.

    The room was clean and the staff was helpful and pleasant. Really close to the train station & Carrefour. Great food places near Anvers train station.

    The only critique we have was that we could hear people going up and down the stairs late at night and early morning. Our room faced the courtyard and we could hear people chatting as it echoes in the room. (The room didn't have a fan so we had to open the windows which meant it was noisy)

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Great location (near to the metro lines 4, 2 and RER - i.e. good connection to the city centre and airport; close to Sacre Coeur and lovely Montmartre streets; hotel rooms oriented to the calm court), nice and obliging staff.

    Deficiently silenced rooms from the corridor.

  • Group of friends
    4.6

    The location is great! It really is close to sacre couer and to a lot of good restaurants!

    The rooms were cold! Unfortunately they dont have enough blankets in the room and do not provide for extra blankets!

    New design, friendly personal, good price, good location

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Modern decor of hotel room and reception areas. Local bars and restaurants. Access to Metro.

    Difficult stair access to room. Absence of elevator.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    The Staff were very helpful, eventhough not all could speak good english they still tried and help and we managed to comunicate somehow ( it was fun). The rooms were clean and tidy ( recently refurbished). Our room had self catering facility which with kids was an absolute bonus and very clean too. Overall a nice neat clean hotel ideal for short city visits and excursions.

    The only thing that was not ideal and caused a little hassel is that they don't have any lifts so you have 3 levels of winding staircase ( if your on the top level like us). We have 2 kids so lots of climbing the stairs and the gaps between the bars of the hand rails were abit wide for a 3 year old so you had to make sure you watched them constantly. Also the rails outside the main window in our room was too short with a diff possibility of a overactive 3 year old climing and falling. We just kept the window shut and mainly used room to sleep, shower etc.

    I liked the decoration of the room and its originality ! That was much fun. I also enjoyed the extreme cleaness of the spot.

    Well, the hotel has just been completely renovated and it is perfect but I would say the sound isolation from room to room could be a little better. It is not very annoying but slightly disturbing without being a problem.

  • Single

    Neat and clean, refurbised

    Lack of basics in the room like phone,internet,pillow cases, a kettler maybe

  • Family with children
    8.8

    The staff (who do speak English) were great and the rooms were fantastic! Don't listen to anyone who says this hotel is a mess and isn't recommended. The renovations are very nearly completed now (as of early May 2011) - all that's left to finish is the stairway and reception area as far as we could see, and there is scaffolding outside still. The rooms are completely finished, and lovely: a big comfortable bed and a stylish black bathroom. My father and I had rooms on the 4th floor, which is the top, so they were very quiet and had pleasant views over the rooftops. The location is good too: it's about 10 mins walk to Montmartre, and also about 10 mins walking to Gare du Nord, so you can walk from the station if you don't have too much luggage. There's a good supermarket very near the hotel if you want to make a picnic or something.

    There's no lift, so carrying our luggage up 4 flights was hard work! (But one of the miads helped us). We didn't manage to find any very interesting restaurants nearby, but we were there just one night, so didn't have time to look very hard.

  • Group of friends

    Unfortunately, the few good points would be the location, and the bed was big and comfortable.

    Hotel Sofia is under major refurbishment, therefore it did not have enough capability to operate. To start with, when you get in front of the hotel there is nothing telling you that you are in front of Sofia hotel, apart of a small piece of paper in French (so if don't speak French, you are in trouble) attached to the door. There is no reception whatsoever, you basically are in a building being built. no room services, by the price of 80,00 Euros /night, no breakfast included. The only person that was at the hotel during my stay, did not speak any language apart of French, hopeless. There was no hot water in the hotel, I had to have cold shower. And they do not accept credit cards, just cash! It is a no go hotel!

    I have stayed at Sofia before and usually book there on my annual Paris trip. Only comment is that I would prefer 'un croissant' for breakfast - otherwise much enjoyed and liked the new 'look'. Merci bien!
