After a single night in this hotel I woke up with backache, feeling like a bit of chewed string. If you value a comfortable bed then, for the love of all that's holy, do not stay here.
The web site promises "the Sofitel Bed is a cocoon of comfort that transforms every night into a marvelously refreshing experience."
No, the Sofitel bed is a hard base with a feather topper on it. The feather topper is considerably smaller than the mattress, giving it the stepped effect of a Mayan pyramid, complete with a slope to throw the bodies down.
The hotel clearly doesn't turn the topper regularly, so it is lumpy and flattened down at the head of the bed but stays fluffy at the bottom. And so your feet end up about two inches higher than your head. Have a look at the accompanying photo - does it look like a cocoon of comfort?
It's a god-awful uncomfortable bed. The staff seem nice, the hotel is clean and attractive, but I prioritise a decent night's sleep over anything else. Three nights later and my back and legs still ache. Thanks, Sofitel.
