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.

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.

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.

I’m impressed how such low cost hotel can be so nice, didn’t really expect it. Room is spacious and clean, looks new. Even carpet on the floor.
I stay in hotels regularly and all over Europe, often in brand hotels as well. I have to say that this is the best breakfast I have ever received in a hotel. So tasty and nice variety. It’s not big breakfast, but it has everything you need and even didn’t know you need :)

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.

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.

Therefore, we are truly sorry that this time your visit did not match your previous stay.

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!

New, modern, clean and comfortable, very nicely decorated and equipped hotel that is worth every penny spent on accommodation. Rooms are very spacious, lots of places for your clothes and stuff, bathroom is comfortable and has also many space for your toiletries. The quality of sleep is excellent - beds are comfortable and darkening curtains won't let early sun to wake you. Just pillows were too small, next time I'll bring my own. :) The air con works silently and the hotel overall was very silent. Hopefully it stays that way. The hotel has direct connection with Lõunakeskus so it is easy to spend your free time by going to the movies (Apollo cinema) or shopping or ice-skating.
Breakfast buffet is probably one of the best in Tartu or in Estonia overall. High quality coffee is the MUST when thinking of nice breakfast and you definitely will get that!! The choice of hot and cold meals, also juices and sweets and fruits were purely superb.
We really enjoyed everything in Hotel Sophia and are looking forward to our stay next weekend.
