East Dereham, Norfolk.

This uniquely designed hotel is ideally placed for touring Nantes. Situated in a quiet residential area adjacent to the Jardin des Plantes, it has a large car park (€10 daily charge) at the rear, secured by sliding metal gates. Very friendly welcome assured (Richard, Benjamin). Only 5 mins walk to the tram line into Nantes. Excellent breakfast selection and friendly...

Hi Norfolktraveller77, Thanks a lot for your warm message. At the SŌZŌ HOTEL everything is implemented to satisfy our guests and we would not succeed without the involvement of everyone ... Indeed, we have a secure, closed parking and video surveillance at the back of the chapel. See you soon at the SŌZŌ HOTEL!

I had a reservation in Sozo hotel while on business trip for the hand ball world cup. As soon as I arrived I was welcomed with a fresh passion juice and some "mignardises"in my bedroom! The hotel is located close to main train station and close to tramway , but off the traffic in a small street very calm. Still...

2 nights 4th floor no trafic noise. Fairly good breakfast. Good service and friendly staff. Nothing extraordinaly so if not spending time in hotel facilities well worth staying. 24h desk and a small lobby bar.

The dimensions and shape of a church pose limits on reusing it as a hotel - which the architects have conquered beautifully. Given the choice of a few very large rooms or two more - so all are smaller, they opted for the latter. The resulting rooms are not large by US or Australian standards but are big enough -...

The Hotel Sozo is a church that have been transformed into a modern styled hotel. Very cozy and at the same time also very modern. Everything is awesome here, great rooms, not the biggest but it works perfect. High service from staff. In the bar they have rock'n'roll beer, the legendary Marshall beer, again a nice touch. The breakfast buffet...

Last week we stayed 4 nights at Sozo Hotel. This hotel is situated in a 19th century chapel, which gives this boutique hotel a special atmosphere. The hotel presents itself as a 4* hotel, but unfortunately misses some details that comes with 4*. The rooms are small, the floors in bathroom and toilet not hygienic, only 1 small soap bottle...

I didn't have one of the beautiful rooms with the stained glass windows and the chapel architecture, but it was nice enough, very contemporary. If the promised minibar was there, I never found it. It's in a quiet neighborhood across from the botanical garden. I hated to leave ! There is also a spa which I didn't have time to...

We arrived at the hotel and were told by a lady that we could not check in and to come back. When we came back at the check in time only one room was reAdy. Our friends saw our room and decided to upgrade for an extra 100 euros instead of waiting for their room. The reception was as described...

The hotel is very unique, breathtaking interior and very attentive staff who spoke excellant english. The only thing that lets it down is the breakfast, the scrambled eggs were served in a glass and they were so undercooked you would be excused if you thought you had been served eggnog, and the bacon turned out to be strange cubes of...

“We requested a "Tentation" room (308), having stained glass window, which was unique design, quiet, and had a very comfortable bed. The hanging space for clothes (same in all rooms) is very limited. WiFi OK. Six foot central heating radiator which worked well. We plan to return in future - room 208 has more space if staying for several days. ”
