Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness
I don't like that they do not clean the room or bring fresh towels. Covid is not an excuse for not emptying the trash or not replenishing the coffee in your room. The house phone in my room did not work. I reported it an in my four day stay, no one came to fix it. The only person on the staff to come into the room wanted to see if I had used anything from the mini bar to charge me. The safe also did not work.Not what I expected from the Sofitel.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
Super central and staff was friendly. Condition of the property needed attention. Wallpaper was peeling in the hallways. We stayed in a corner room and one view was a brick wall. Entered with half a lamp hanging off the tv stand. Bathroom had no real door just two wooden doors that had a pretty large opening between them. The shower leaked so mopping up water after each shower. Lounge did not ask for vaccine card. Had breakfast at the restaurant food was great but the table next to us was never bussed. Overall not a great experience.
