Hotel Sophia A hotel for smart people Hotel Sophia was established with the aim to combine great hotel experience with good prices. The aim is to provide visitors with more than simply accommodation, be it a holiday, business or conference trip. Therefore, we have drawn together innovative ideas and thoughts, inspired by a smart and active lifestyle. Hotel Sophia boasts spacious and modern rooms. Natural and allergy-free materials have been used for decorative applications. The hotel’s location is an effective hub between Estonian cities and easily accessible for visitors arriving by car, offering free-of-charge parking facilities. Visitors are able to go to the cinema or ice-skating, visit an adventure park, a beauty salon or shop at Lounakeskus – the biggest shopping and recreational centre in South Estonia. For the visitors’ convenience, the hotel is connected with the shopping centre, making all services available on site. Cycle and pedestrian tracks that begin next to the building are suitable for miles-long cycling, and the health trail in the Sanatorium forest park, only 800 metres from the hotel, is an ideal place for morning and evening walks or jogging. Gym and group training facilities are available at the sports club in Lounakeskus. There are two conference halls in the hotel – the North Hall and South Hall. The rooms are excellent for organising top-priority meetings or heated debates, exciting discussions or educational training courses. Restaurant Fii offers all its visitors delicious dishes, combining visual attractiveness and exciting flavours

Our trip was completely ruined mostly because of hotel unprofessional way of dealing with problematic people. We had problems with children under our room who run and scream and bang on walls all night and until 3am i went to reception 3 times asking to change the room or atleast talk to those people. Answer was no free rooms available and we try to to something but nothing was done to calm those kids down. Only sleeping for 2 hours went back at noon finally the lady on reception change our room to higher floor. Night administrator just lied to me that no free rooms were available. And even during tje day time those kids run across the hotel corridors on stairs and yell out of window. That was the most horrible stay i ever had in my life and i was in diffrent hotels. And also ignoring the fire safety rules when on 5th floor corridor was full of baby strollers. As hotel you need to put more attention on safety and service. Hotel otherwise is nice rooms clean and breakfast standart and good. I was in that hotel before liked the stay and thats why we decided to return but this was our last time here.

Dear Vika, thank you for your feedback! We are glad to hear that you have stayed in our hotel before and enjoyed your stay. Therefore, we are truly sorry that this time your visit did not match your previous stay.

Great for travelling for business. Quiet, excellent breakfast, friendly staff. I really liked the big TV in the room and the free wifi was very fast. The hotel is attached to a big shopping centre, so there's a lot to do in the evenings. Will definitely visit again.

The breakfast was absolutely scrumptious. Hotel is connected to one of the biggest shopping centers in Estonia. Our evenings were filled with activities since there is so much to do there. Even though the TVs in the room are humongous it was nice to have a cinema connected with the hotel. Will definetely come back!

Hotel is connected with shopping center, that made meal choices easier, the same with finding haircut and, as there was ice skating rink, leisure time was not an issue. Yes ,there is a cinema, but keep in mind that children movies are dubbed in estonian. Hotel itself had friendly and pleasant staff. We asked reception if we could get watter boiling cettle and they gave us. The room was clean and cozy, beds were comfy and spotless. Only thing is that it is far out of city center, but there is a bus and if you have a car, then it will be no problems. Overall we enjoyed Hotel Sophia.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the end of september. Easy to find, convenient parking. The rooms nice and warm and good size for a double. The breakfast selection was basic but did the job. The staff was excellent. Good value for money. Would return.

Modern and well designed hotel with nice staff. Impeccable. Very good breakfast. Ample parking. Just outside of the main old town, and as a result, it was a just little more effort to access the historic area, but really not a huge issue. Close to mall shopping.

Friendly service / staff. It's a short taxi or bus ride from the city centre. The breakfast was decent. The rooms are very nice and clean. It's quiet too. The hotels restaurant is casual fine dining and I'd be surprised if you can find better food anywhere in Tartu. Can't stress this enough. The food was amazing.
