This relatively new hotel was a pleasure to stay at. we had a very pleasant welcome and were shown all the facilities both common and particular to our room. The location was very quiet and very handy for the Superb Botanical gardens across the road. Our room was well equipped and the bed was super comfy. Well worth a stay.

This amazing hotel is nicely decorated. Perfect combination of historic architecture and modern commodities. Love it! Despite some of the room amenities are quite small the overall experience was really fantastic. The staff was also extremely useful and breakfast was delicious.

Great night and morning with birds singing and distant church bells. A walk away is the Botanical Garden and the The Dutchesses Anne of Bretagne Castel with multiligual audio guided history of Nantes and region, not to be missed. Skip the Maritime Museum for other sites...

As almost everyone has commented this is a spectacular hotel conversion. We stayed there for three days last week as part of an organised group holiday and paid for an upgrade to Room 308 - complete with its own stained glass window. Blissfully quiet at night, the bed was probably the most comfortable I have ever slept in. And very... More

This hotel is a bit quirky, being in a old church. But there is nothing old inside. It is ultra modern and stylish. The staff are very attentive and look after your every need. The rooms were nice and clean (we had Room 303), and the place is ideally located not far from the SNCF railway station (Gare Nantes), Tram... More

My room was utterly delightful with many helpful amenities. i loved the decor of white lime green and clear acrylic. The room in this converted church was very comfortable and very spacious for one although I'm sure two would be comfortable also. Such a wonderful and plentiful breakfast was brought to my room with close attention to my requests. Hotel... More

Its a stunning looking place and so much attention to detail even down to the tea spoons in the cups and the cutlery was all so nice and different. We drove and parking... More

The entry to this converted cathedrale is interesting and tastefully done. There is a lift and staff are most helpful The room was decorated well but with two large suitcases the two of us had difficulty having enough space in the room. The bedroom is divided from the bathroom by the heating water pipes. Our only other negative was the... More

Hotel Sozo is special. And different. It is a converted chapel beautifully transformed into a hotel . As you enter reception, you stand in a huge, vaulted space and you smile. Everybody does. The hotel is located next to the outstanding botanic gardens, Jardin Des Plantes, and is in an ideal location for a Nantes visit with a 10 minute... More
