“Good hotel for city visit”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Hotel Sofia renewed the complete hotel in the year 2010. Situated only 1 station from Gare du Nord, the hotel is ideal for train travellers. Subway station Barbes is a 4 min walk. Sacre Coeur at 10 min. Peripherique 10 mins by car.
There's no elevator, so keep this in mind when you mark your preferences on booking (we where on 4th floor.....).
The hotel can make parking reservation for you in case that you arrive by car: be sure to do so!!
Rooms are big for Paris propotions. Clean too. Bathroom just big enough.
If you want more quiet rooms: ask for room not at streetside.
Sofia offers very good value for the price, especially for a city like Paris!

Room Tip: To avoid street noise: ask for an inner room

Me and my partner came to Paris for 3 days. We found this hotel at the last minute with a fantastic price and a deal including free breakfast. As soon as we arrived in the early morning we were taken good care of. Our luggage was stored, we were given breakfast and connections to the Wifi. We were able to check into our room early, which was a great plus since being up at 3am travelling the previous day! Our room was a nice size, extremely spotless and well decorated. Couldn't complain.
The hotel is close enough to the metro (some may consider it a fair walk but me and my partner are avid walkers) and easily assessable to all of Paris' famous points.
The hotel receptionist and owner couldn't have done more for us! She worked round the clock and helped translate, call and book restaurants and supply us with ample leaflets and brochures about Paris.
Would definitely come back again!

We stayed in this hotel while visiting Paris by bikes. They allowed us to keep our bikes inside the small garden they have, that allowed us to avoid having them out on the street in a neighborood which didn't look wonderful :D
We didn't bought breakfast from them, as there was a small boulangerie in the proximity where we could buy freshly made croissants and pain au chocolat.
That said, for its price it's a wonderful hotel, clean and really close to the metro (still, in paris everywhere it's close to the metro...).
Really reccomended to those who want to see paris without spending a lot!
I apologize if I made mistakes, I hope my english it's comprehensible.

Room Tip: The rooms at the higher floors seemed nicer.

Ever wondered wich hotel to choose? Hotel Sofia with it's location, friendly and helpful staff, lovely neighbourhood and short walk to the highlights, is THE place for your Paris visit. I loved the grocery store around the corner where I picked up fresh fruit, good wine and fresh baked bread with the significant "crust". I loved the atmosphere of a local neighbourhood with excellent restaurants at very low prices. And the short stroll to Sacré Coeur with it's excellent view over Paris, breathtaking! Montmartre with it's history of local and also well known painters and the fact that this was an area for buying sexual services in the early days. It's only a few minutes from Hotel Sofia to downtown Paris with the excellent metrosystem. The price for a room is affordable and the standard is excellent due to the hotels upgrade. They serve a nice breakfast in a cosy atmosphere downstairs at a price of 7 Euro... unless you'd like to hunt down the bread yourself at the grocery store. The beds are comfortable, the hotel is very clean and modern. The hotel staff is very helpful. As a result of forgetting the backpack of my daughter by departure, the staff contacted me and shipped the backpack by mail as soon as possible, great service Lydia! If you arrive by car, the hotel has a great parking garage, just remember to book in advance. So, why stay in a crowded touristplace with artificial high prices when you can stay comfortable and affordable with a great view over Paris by night? It takes 10-15 minutes to travel downtown from the hotel. Montmartre is beautiful in it's own charming way, oh, and don't forget to visit the "red mill". Hotel Sofia you are highly recommended!

Room Tip: If you are a family, don't hesitate to pick the large familyroom. It had every amenities you'...

I was not expecting much of the room because of the low price we paid. Actually the room itself was quite good. It was clean and looked new and the people working there were friendly.
But.... The heat in the room was overwhelming. We had a bag on the floor with chocolate, and during the night it all MELTED. We felt boiled. And the walls were so, so paper thin. You could hear everything from the room next door.
Also, the beds were not very comfortable and not sleeping well just gave me headaches.

But, the location was nice. And it has a grocery store (Carrefour Market) just around the corner, so we could by cheap drinks and food there instead of buying breakfast at the hotel.

Another thing was that it said free wifi in the lobby, which there was. But after the first night it never worked, and the guy in the counter said there was something wrong with the connection, so we didnt get wifi at all the last days.
