Austin, Texas
Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Wonderful view and access to Rhone River. Cafes and shopping blocks away. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and accommodating to our early arrival. Our river view room was spacious with a quirky walk in closet. Double doors at entry eliminated any noise from elevators or people in hallway. Although not so attractive from the exterior, we would absolutely stay here...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 April 2017 via mobile

The hotel is quite good with comfort and cleanliness and if necessary the staff's guality and helpfulness. There are no balconies in it. But this is not a problem for us. It is a really good hotel for those who do not have this type of expectation.

I stayed at the Sofitel in 10-12 May with three friends. The room was of average size, very clean. They included a free minibar and water, which was definitely nice. The decor in the rooms was a little bit dated, but certainly an acceptable place to stay (and you could have some wonderful views of the Rhone if you're on...

A typical Sofitel property. A well run machine. The rooms are somehow small to North American standards but it provides all the amenities the business traveler needs. The view on the Rhone is fantastic. Their main dining is very good. You're next to Place Bellecour and rue de la Re. Walking distance to old Montreal.

Nice Staff, be sure that they give you a renovated room because the old ones look like a 2 star hotel of 1970. Central position. Clean. Breakfast overpriced 27 euro per person. Parking overpriced 26 Euro per day. Is not a 5 star property.

The hotel rooms are a bit outdated and it was impossible to have breakfast on Easter Sunday as the hotel was crowded but the location was too small. All over our stay, the personnel at reception and in the bar was outstandingly kind.
