I was expecting an average hotel chain with nothing special because of the name. I have to say I was very happy to stay there!
The room I had was really really big and all new with some mood lighting, very cool furniture and all functional with plugs everywhere (what a traveller needs). I enjoyed sitting on the sofa and watching TV while browsing on my iPad. To be honest, I think it's a bit crappy they charge you for the WiFi in this day and age, but then most hotels do, sadly. To be honest, I was surprised by the multimedia system which was very fast and with a beautiful interface (normally hotels have a very 90's menu that takes ages to load and it just looks and feels ugly).
The shower and the toilet were nice and spacious. The breakfast was quite good and the decor throughout the hotel was really nice and modern with a touch of art deco meets lounge. The bed was REALLY REALLY comfortable, I can't remember sleeping that soundly other than my bed for a long time with lovely soft pillows, matress and duvet. It really was very comfortable and it was a proper double bed with normal non-german pillows.
Because I was only there for a night on a business trip I couldn't make use of the other restaurants or the Spa available to guests but from the pictures it looked lovely.
I will definitely try to stay in a Sofitel in the future - all of them seem REALLY nice.
