Reviewed 10 June 2014

Cannot find enough good things to say about this lovely hotel . The facade is beautiful . Formerly a church , the outer shell has been retained , inside it has been totally renovated . The interior is ultra modern . It must have been a huge undertaking .
Parking is available on site . Reception area is lovely as is the breakfast room . The staff are extremely helpful . Visiting several cities this trip it was the one place where we actually felt like they valued our business from the moment we walked in the door .Bags were immediately transported to the room . Maps and directions to points of interest and restaurants provided . The room though small was adequate , the bed and pillows comfortable . The bathroom although also small was well equipped . Breakfast was very good. If I were to stay in Nantes again I would definitely rebook this hotel and would highly recommend it to others as well .

This is one of the most beautiful hotels we have ever been to.
The hotel is built inside an ancient church, even if it has been delicately designed, it keeps the magic of a church´s details.

The staff is so nice, they were very helpful all the time and the service is impecable.

Loved it!

It was a delight from start to finish even though it was only for one night! My husband and I will definitely be coming back next time we are in Nantes. What a lovely surprise to be faced with a very chic art hotel true to itself from the radiators in the Bathroom to the tea cups! And the owners were very welcoming. We felt right at home!

Enjoyed staying here-only one night but the staff were fun, friendly and helpful-very nice.
The hotel a clever redesign of a lovely church. The room a good, contemporary and interesting design, slightly awkward shape and style over substance perhaps-but still enjoyed being there and perfectly comfortable.
Was an okay location-a bit out of the way.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel Sozo this last weekend and we loved it! The hotel itself is gorgeous; well appointed and very modern. Exactly our taste, so one might consider our review a bit biased. ;)

The staff and owner were extremely friendly and engaging. This being our first time in Nantes, they spent a good 20 minutes with us pouring over a map and identifying everything to do and see in the city. Their recommendations were spot on (as were the ones found here on tripadvisor) and we had a great time touring Nantes, despite the despicable weather. Our exploration begin at the Jardin des Plantes right next door and all the way to the Iles des machines, plus everything in between (chateau des ducs de bretagne, the catherdral, the Lu biscuit factory, and many shops and the open market). The center of Nantes is very walker friendly, and we had no reason to touch our car the entire time we were there.

As for the hotel itself, the owner explained that as the site is of historical significance, they were precluded from making any changes on the outside, so the church look remains exactly as it has been for the last 100 years or so. Yet, the inside has been completely remodeled and the look and feel is extremely contemporary. I was delighted to find a baby grand piano and two beautiful acoustic guitars in the lobby, and much to the embarrassment of my wife I sat down and tried out all three.

We went for a 'tentation' level room and were not disappointed. Not huge, but certainly big enough and very clean and bright. We loved the stained glass window! If there is perhaps one thing I should point out, it's that we were able to hear some noise from the room next to ours, but nothing that would want us to change rooms.

To summarize, this hotel completely deserves its number one rating and we look forward to our next stay there, hopefully this summer.

My wife and I stayed here for one night. From the greeting of the staff, through to our room this was a special place. The hotel is built in a refurbished church, so the room we stayed in had a beautiful stained glass window. The staff were incredibly helpful, efficient, warm and and nothing was to much effort. They helped us find a great restaurant and the places we should visit. We would highly recommend this hotel.

My wife and I spent a week at this wonderful property. The staff was warm, attentive and efficient. Our room on the 3rd floor overlooked le Jardin des Plantes, very pretty view. The location was very convenient to my conference, restaurants and the train station. Really liked the room. It was cozy, well appointed and very clean. A super feature is that it is a converted 19th century church. This adds an a propo touch to a classy hotel in the EU's greenest city. We would stay there again anytime.

Room Tip: Room 307 has a great view
