We stayed here for 6 nights and after a long trip from the UK we were delighted with such a comfortable and large room in which to relax a little while before we went out to explore the neighbourhood. The room we had was on the top floor overlooking the gardens and was a nice bright room, decorated just to...

Beautiful historic building, just a block away from shopping and restaurants on Vanderbilt. Also one block away from the Q line which takes you directly to Times Sq. I stayed in the East room, which shares a bathroom with the West room, and I was impressed by how spacious the room was (approximately 500 sq. ft.). The place was very...

We recently stayed at the Sofia Inn while attending a family function in Park Slope. You can really feel like a New Yorker, using your key to your own apartment in a brownstone. We stayed in the Garden Suite. The flat was bright and light and has the advantage of the bedroom being in the middle so there was virtually...

The room was comfortable, beautiful and clean. I got all the help I needed and was very well received both before arriving and once there. I especially liked the freedom that a front door key gives you to come and go just like you were at home. The inn was in a really beautiful part of Brooklyn and very close...

I never write reviews, good or bad, but the Sophia's Inn disregard for its potential guest time is dumbfounding. Once you request the booking and finally receive the PayPal request to pay for the room, you may or may not get the room. The Inn told me that they sent booking PayPal requests to other people, and they paid right...

Thesofiainn, Owner at The Sofia Inn, responded to this review

We did not overbook. We sent a PayPal request to this prospective guest, and, as sometimes happens, someone booked the room before he did. We made it clear in the email we sent to this guest that we confirm a reservation as soon as we receive a deposit. This reservation was never confirmed because we received the deposit--which we immediately...

We heard of this excellent inn from a friend when planning a weekend trip to NY. It's located in the heart of Brooklyn right near Prospect Park and within very short walking distance to all the subway lines into Manhattan and the rest of NY. The room we stayed in was spacious and well furnished. The owner and housekeeper provided...

We stayed at the Sophia Inn this past weekend and it was wonderful. We stayed in the North room and it was cozy and spotless. There was a microwave, coffee pot and a mini fridge which was an added bonus. The water pressure was great too! It is on a beautiful street in park slope and the walk to the...

Since I'm originally from Brooklyn, it's hard for me to stay in a traditional hotel because I feel like a tourist in my own home town. The Sofia Inn is in a beautiful brownstone located in one of the coolest parts of Brooklyn. The Q & B at the 7th Ave. station is just one block away and the 2...
