My husband and I stayed at the Sofia Inn for 5 nights. We stayed at the Garden Suite which was very comfortable. It is advertised as a 2 bedroom but the second bedroom is closet size and has only a single bed. Could work for a couple with a child. We were very comfortable as we were only 2. The... More

I almost don't want to review the Sofia Inn. I don't want anyone to discover my secret. A hotel in a beautiful part of Brooklyn with easy access to Manhattan that costs $100 a night many nights? IMAGINE WHAT THE GENERAL POPULATION WOULD DO WITH SUCH INFORMATION! Clean, charming, affordable. Literally the only downside for us was the shared bathroom... More

From the minute we arrived, we felt at home. What a wonderful alternative to a hotel! With spacious, clean, thoughtfully decorated rooms, comfortable beds, plentiful sheets and towels, fully-equipped kitchens, a garden, and a warm and welcoming ambience, the Sofia Inn provided the perfect place for our extended family. The location, on a safe, quiet, beautiful tree-lined street of Brooklyn... More

I'm a Queens native and the Sofia Inn felt like home! We visited early October for four nights to see family and friends in the area and this suite and garden offered room to have them come visit with us for an afternoon. Two of us (old college roomies) shared the Garden suite which had an ample kitchen, tiny but... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in the 3rd floor with sharing bedroom. Strategic place to stay. Near to subway and eateries, we love the bagel shop not far from Sofia Inn. Clean room :) You can request for early check in.

The apartment was nice, roomy, with access to a garden. 2 bedrooms, wifi, private bath. Everything worked out nicely and the place is close to a B and Q-line subway station. I would recommend for couples, families and small groups of friends.

If you have wondered what it would be like to stay in one of Brooklyn's late-1800 Brownstones in a residential neighborhood, The Sofia Inn offers you that experience in style and comfort. It exceeded our expectations. Our son, who lives in Brooklyn, recommended we consider staying here, and we couldn't have been happier that we did. Features to love about... More

My husband and 2 teenage girls stayed in the Parlor Suite for 5 nights. After looking at many, many Manhattan hotels we decided we wanted more than just 2 beds. It was great having a kitchen to make coffee, keep stuff cold, etc. We also wanted the girls to have the feeling of living in a city especially since they... More

Great place! Friendly owner, safe neighborhood with a great bagel place a block away. Clean and well kept. We will be back! We stayed in the Parlor Room. The deck and garden area are quite and full of flowers and plants. I knocked over a flower pot on my way out and the owner was very nice and understanding. Stay... More

I live nearby and booked the entire Sofia Inn for my out of town guests for my wedding. My wife took over our apartment with her wedding party, so I gathered my troops and we all got ready at the Sofia. The place is absolutely beautiful; well-preserved pre-war details, high ceilings and easy check in and check out. The Parlor... More
