The exterior is an old stone church but inside everything is super modern. Very friendly girls in the Reception area, extremely helpful in telling us about the local sights. There didn't seem to be anyone to help with bags, not an issue for us as we were travelling light but it might be if you had a lot. Our suite... More

We asked for an upgrade to a room with a stained glass window and they obliged. Service was excellent throughout and the best breakfast we have had in France with hot and cold foods and English teas with real milk! Perfectly clean and modern rooms with lively shower facilities and all at a very reasonable price. The only criticism is... More

We really enjoyed our stay in the wonderful little hotel! The breakfast was great with several options for cereals and fruits. No cappuccino but they would warm milk for your coffee which was nice. The room on the top floor was amazing with high vaulted ceilings which gave the feel of being in a larger room. The bed was a... More

A small boutique hotel just outside of the main town but close to the train station. The ambiance and comfort level is quite remarkable but what really impressed me was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, no request was too much trouble, helping me to rent a bike, assisting in routing They have a wonderful spa with hammam and...

Stayed 2 nights for business. The room was very nice with a unique old church vibe. Price was reasonable. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I will be staying at Sozo again for any future visits.

This beautiful hotel is a recently renovated old convent, and if you want to do some penance, stay here. It is conveniently located an easy walk from the main train station. Even though it is close to the station, it is extremely quiet. The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable. The well decorated lobby and modern rooms speak luxury... More

The Hotel Sozo is a study in contrast for the eye. It's in a renovated chapel, yet the furnishings are ultra-modern. Ceilings soar above brightly-colored furniture and decorations. Our room (Tentation) still had the original stained glass circular window above the bed. It's a small room, compact, even. The shower was so tiny that I couldn't have fallen down if... More

Maybe because all of the other reviews were so great I had set my expectations too high. First the pros: The building is a great mix of old church with modern touches. Love the design! Staff is nice & helpful. Still & sparkling water available in lobby. Like the Nespresso machine in the room. Quiet location and directly across from... More

What can you say. Awesome hotel. Great architecture and superb location. Staff very friendly and nothing too much trouble. Free parking at rear. Secure and off street. Essential as lots of vandalism on vehicles in region. Good location a few minutes walk from town. Few euros extra got you the delux room which was well worth it. Highly recommend.

We stayed in the Sozo Suite with our two kids. This is the kind of hotel that is small enough that even with small kids you don't effect other guests at all, so you don't have to always tell them to be quite. But it is just as easily a great romantic hotel where you would be more than happy... More
