Enjoyed staying here-only one night but the staff were fun, friendly and helpful-very nice. The hotel a clever redesign of a lovely church. The room a good, contemporary and interesting design, slightly awkward shape and style over substance perhaps-but still enjoyed being there and perfectly comfortable. Was an okay location-a bit out of the way.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel Sozo this last weekend and we loved it! The hotel itself is gorgeous; well appointed and very modern. Exactly our taste, so one might consider our review a bit biased. ;) The staff and owner were extremely friendly and engaging. This being our first time in Nantes, they spent a good 20... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night. From the greeting of the staff, through to our room this was a special place. The hotel is built in a refurbished church, so the room we stayed in had a beautiful stained glass window. The staff were incredibly helpful, efficient, warm and and nothing was to much effort. They helped... More

My wife and I spent a week at this wonderful property. The staff was warm, attentive and efficient. Our room on the 3rd floor overlooked le Jardin des Plantes, very pretty view. The location was very convenient to my conference, restaurants and the train station. Really liked the room. It was cozy, well appointed and very clean. A super feature... More

While this establishment is superficially impressive, especially as an architecture and design showpiece, it leaves a lot to be desired as a hotel. There are many, many quality issues needing urgent attention, the most serious of which are: some rooms are simply too small and poorly laid out; ventilation is poor to the point of discomfort; showers don't work; etc....

I loved my stay here! Slightly small rooms but really lovely staff and very clean with great location (city centre and walkable distance for castle and other tourist sites etc). The repurposed church design is obvious from the outside but the interiors are very modern and different in style. Would definitely consider returning!

Sayed for 1 night in August. We picked the hotel because it had been positively reviewed in The Times. On the plus side, the staff were absolutely fantastic, really friendly and knowledgeable. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast was ok, although for the price of the rooms, it probably should have been included. On the downside, there was no... More

We were very happy with our stay at the Sozo. We were there for six nights. The staff were just so friendly and courteous and knowledgeable. I had communicated with them prior to our arrival for restaurant recommendations and they didn't disappoint. There is wonderful art all over the main floor and the lobby is very cozy to just sit...

Stayed 2 nights at the end of August. Had chosen this hotel for its originality (being in a converted church) everything about this hotel is small and neat! We had a standard room, just big enough for a large double bed, bedside tables, a chair and small desk on which was situated a Nespresso machine (nice touch! but only 2... More
