The staff is ok, not so much smile but when you initiate a smile... More

We stayed at Sophia House in June 2012 and were warmly welcomed by the manager Tawfiq and his staff. Our room was nice and clean and very reasonably priced at $45 per night.

Sophia house is first of all great value. Rooms have good A/C, internet access, cable tv, hot water, rooms are quite spacious and there is a free laundry service. Stayed there many times because I have not found any equal in that price range. Breakfast is above average, fruits, eggs, sausage, toast, etc
