Negative Reviews

Re-decoration is needed in some areas

Still stylish overall, the hotel is old in areas and some guests feel that it would benefit from some modernization.

The gym is only "OK"

Unfortunately, a very small number of guests have mentioned that the gym at the hotel has slightly out-dated equipment, which doesn't inspire a thorough work-out.

Breakfast is not always up to par

A handful of disappointed guests have mentioned that they felt the breakfast was not up to the Sofitel standard they had hoped for. A minority said their disappointment in the food was compounded by slow or sub-standard service.
