I stayed at the Sofia Inn in February of 2016 for almost a week. The gentleman that worked there was very nice. I only wish that the second-floor bathroom was a jack and jill like the third floor; walking through the hallway in my pjs in the middle of the night was a little weird. Overall, I would stay at...

Anyone looking for a place to stay in New York will know it's hard to find a place that's budget-friendly, let alone good AND friendly on the wallet. The Sofia Inn is a gem because it is that rare combination of both. It's located on a quiet leafy street, only two blocks from a subway (you can get to Union... More

Booked online when the hotel website and hotels.com showed availability. Reservation was accepted then several hours later, got an email saying that the reservation was canceled. Yet the websites still show availability. Wasted time on this and lost a night's reservation. Late at night had to seek out other options. Bad experience.

Very sorry for the inconvenience, but the only reason we would cancel a reservation is if your credit card was rejected. We have no choice in that case but to cancel the reservation until the guest supplies us with a valid credit card number. More

My husband and I were very pleased with our stay at The Sofia Inn. Already being familiar with the neighborhood we knew that it was a great location. The room was much larger than we realized and relatively quiet. Check in process was easy. We will be staying here again in the future.

The location is great, convenient to many restaurants, subway lines, and places of interest in Brooklyn. We stayed here because we wanted to be close to where our son lives. We were all participating in the TD Five Boro Bike Tour, so it was convenient to all ride together to the starting spot. The room is quaint and clean. The... More

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.

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.
