The 28 guest rooms are divided into 3 categories spread over 4 storeys. The standard rooms are called 'experience'. Measuring 18 to 22m², they correspond to a French 4-star hotel with, for amenities, room service available 24/7, an iPod dock/alarm/radio/lamp, large flat-screen TV with cable channels, tea and coffee-making facilities, a hair dryer and a safe, etc. The intermediate category, the 'temptation' rooms, only measure 16 to 19m² but have a partly vaulted ceiling. Finally, the 'seduction' rooms (24 to 26m²) offer a few little extras (bathrobes, separate toilets, a stocked mini-bar, etc.) and especially a fabulous location in this atypical hotel with arches and stained glass: permanent reminders that this building was indeed once a chapel.
Indeed, this is what is most interesting about the hotel. The 'experience' rooms, albeit very comfortable, have nothing left to remind you of this fact, while the 'temptation' rooms, with their exposed arches and the allure of their stained glass windows, won't let you forget it until you check out.
Throughout, though, the omnipresent white and carefully chosen furniture consisting of great design classics (Philippe Stark and Ron Arad armchairs, Ingo Maurer chandeliers, etc.) work with the original design to create a voluntary neutrality. The building's strong character led Benoit Boiteau to create a refined style. There is a touch of fun, nevertheless, with the few black and white pictures on the walls that show the evolution of the hotel's construction. A splendid idea.
Finally, to top it all of, although the chapel may have lost its spiritual purpose, the Sozo Hotel has remained a real haven of peace.
