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

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Economy class hotel attached to large shopping mall on the suburbs of Tartu. Good for motorised guests as provide easy access from main roads approaching Tartu and has plenty of free parking spaces. During the stay ( Sep '22 ) it was ongoing massive road repair works nearby, probably now is finished. Said that, hotel location is absolutely not good for sightseeing purposes, as you need commute additionally to city center. Reasonable priced hotel, providing balanced quality accomodation. Positive: location for guests with auto; availability of shopping mall adjusted to hotel ( you can get in without even leaving hotel doors ) Negative: poor breakfast, sound insulation Overall - acceptable, would recomend.

One night in this new hotel was a very positive experience. The place is attached to a large shopping mall with it's own entrance from the shopping area. Hotel Sophia is located some 4km from the Tartu city center but easily accessible with taxi or car. Parking is available in the hundreds. We were particularly impressed with the stylish and modern interior design of the public areas as well as the room itself which had plenty of space and amenities. Moreover the efficiency of the housekeeping needs a special compliment as all spaces were spotless and extremely clean. This is rare so hopefully the hotel keeps it this way. Kind service overall left us very impressed and we can warmly recommend this place.

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.

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.
