Best staff I've ever encountered
This hotel was fantastic. We have nothing but good things to say. Our room was great - big king size bed, crib for our daughter, great bathroom amenities. The service was unreal. Maryuris at the front desk was just the best. And I believe the young man's name was George - he was wonderful. The breakfast was wonderful and the service also good. We used the rooftop pool a few times and it was nice. The service up at the rooftop bar was good. The only tip I have is that it can get loud from hallway noise - this is because of the material of construction and nothing really can be done about it. Not a big deal just use a noise machine if you're a light sleeper like us and our toddler. I highly recommend this hotel mostly due to the amazing staff.

Lovely stay
Had a great stay at this hotel. Great location and a rooftop with fantastic views. John helped us by advising which bars and restaurants to go to. He also reserved our beach tour for us. All the staff are friendly and speak English.

Execlernt location, service and staff! Loved it.
Sophie Hotel was FANTASTIC. The location was perfect inside the walled city and we felt totally safe. The rooms are beautiful, updated, and have really tall ceilings. Great bed, bath, AC. The breakfast there is great, again, great service. The staff was amazing with giving us recommendations and making reservations for restaurants and tours. Oscar and Johnny were great. They really took care of us. The roof top pool and bar was great too. Juan and John, the bartenders, were so nice and played whatever music you wanted. Andrea was great too. The hotel even offered us a $25 day trip to a private beach which was totally worth it to get away from all the street vendors. One of the restaurants Oscar and Johnny referred us to was Cande. We are there three times! I HIGHLY recommend this hotel!
