We had a lovely stay at the Sozo. Very close to the train station and the number one attraction, the gardens. It was very quiet but within 10 minutes walk/two tram stops to the bustling centre. The hotel is set in an old church building but is very modern and bright. They also have a spa which is available at a small extra cost. The bedroom very compact but felt light and airy. One thing I didn't like was the flooring in the toilet and the bathroom which was a matting of sorts. The toilet smelt like a toilet and I feel this was the flooring that was holding it as it was very clean otherwise. The breakfast was a good quality continental style with freshly squeezed orange juice available too. the staff were vey helpful with dinner suggestions etc. All in all a super, slightly different place to stay.

"Comfortable and reasonably pricwed hotel at convin"

1. During my last night in the hotel a quite haevy picture fell to the floor very near to my bed while I WAs sleeping. I suggest that manegement review the way the picures are hang. Somebody may die.

My only complaint is I couldn't figure out how to turn on the AC or if there was any. I slept with the window open and there was a lot of noise.
But the staff was incredible, the room neat as a pin, and OMG the bed was so comfortable. I forgot to ask what kind of mattress they have before I left. They had special extra touches, like a hair dryer and slippers. The shower was wonderful, roomy and great water pressure.
Everyone was so pleasant and accepting of my poor French. Many of the staff spoke English, as well, and were equally pleasant in both languages.
The location is near the train station, so convenient, and just a stone's throw from the Chateau, which was the primary reason for my visit. The tram stop is right there as well, so you can depart for all parts around Nantes in a heartbeat. The building next to (attached) to the hotel had some homeless people around, but being so close to the train station this kind of seemed inevitable.

This hotel is close to the train station, and easy walking distance to many sights, including the Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne and the Jardin des Plantes. The immediate neighborhood of the hotel is a bit sketchy, but the hotel itself was just fine.
