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

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sofia Inn. It's in a great neighbourhood, close to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and the Brooklyn Museum, and two subway stops served by 4 different lines. We stayed in one of the rooms with a kitchen and found it easy to self-cater many meals, with a supermarket and other grocery stores just around... More

We stayed here for one night while enjoying a play at BAM. It was our first trip to Brooklyn and we had no idea what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised to find that we were staying in a real Brooklyn brownstone ideally situated for sightseeing and the play. The room was spacious and very clean and nicely furnished.... More

My wife and 10 year old daughter loved the garden room. Shopping a block away. Restaurants a block away. Subway near by. The review that said old and dusty was wrong. We loved it. Questions ? email me. Jay.... Austin TX ......... Webbersongs@gmail.com

Room was spacious and quiet with fully appointed kitchenette and very adequate bathroom. Comfortable bed and fluffy, thick towels. Very clean and pleasant space. It is obvious the landlords care not only about their tenants(even for one night!), but their lovely brownstone as well.

I recently rented the Garden Suite for friends (2 adults, 2 kids) visiting from Mexico. The Garden Suite (ground floor in the brownstone with access to the back yard) is spacious with a full kitchen. The bathroom is a bit small and cramped but serviceable. The kitchen has everything you need - they don't serve breakfast. There are plenty of... More

We stayed in The Palour Suite at this Inn. It was our first time, and we really appreciated the comfortable, relaxing, welcoming feel of the place. We settled in straight away, felt at home. Yes, decor, furniture quirky, but we are OK with that. Yes, there are minor elements that are old and worn, needing some TLC, but on the... More
