We've been travelling to Provence and the Cote d'Azur since the early '80s have watched the lovely town of Sisteron decline as the traffic on the Route Napoleon gives way to the new motorways, so was delighted to find this mad little boutique hotel in the centre of town last summer. We had the room with the balcony overlooking the main pedestrian street. Staff were charming and attentive. No air conditioning but fans, which is what we had to put up with in the '80s anyway and added to the charm. Will be back.

Amazing is the word that springs to mind. Sophie’s hotel is a true gem in the middle of Sisteron. Very tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Full of character with the icing on the cake being that Sophie has worked so hard to make it such a special place to stay. I may well come back to Sisteron just to stay here again! Thoroughly recommend!!!!

Have you stayed somewhere and left with a bad taste in your mouth? Booked this several months ago. My wife struggles with her knees so I’m sensitive to stairs. Sophie’s website, looks good, and does indicate at the bottom that there are stairs, and the rooms are on the 1st or 2nd floor from reception - 1st déception - what she does not say is - reception is up one floor as well from street level. We chose the suite on the 3rd floor ( 4 floors up) because we didn’t like the others. 2nd deception - she had indicated that there was ample parking close to the hotel (true). Free between 19:00 and 9:00. We had wine in the car, so I was concerned about the temperature. Sophie offered that I could park in her garage. When I said I could park outside, she said “ it’s up to you “, never mentioning it was 10 euros a night. It is indicated on her website, but I booked 6 months ago and had planned to park outside. . Not a big deal. After the first night, when I realized there was the charge, I parked on the street, and brought my wine in the room. 3rd deception - on arrival, we asked for a snack and drinks, to carry us over to dinner. She served a charcuterie plate that consisted of a small piece of foie gras, 2 pieces of cheese, 2 small slices of prosciutto, a few slices of salami, and a few pieces of bread - for 19 euros. Horrible value for that price. Overall, the experience here was not positive. After two weeks in France, my least favourite hotel. I would NEVER stay here again.

Response from Candisso, Propriétaire at Le Patio de Sophie
Responded Oct. 3, 2019
Ce commentaire est contradictoire et ne reflète pas vraiment la réalité. En effet, vous avez choisi dès le début – et sans l’ignorer - une suite située au dernier étage alors que votre femme semble avoir des problèmes de genoux. A l'arrivée, je vous ai proposé d'autres chambres plus faciles d'accès mais votre femme elle-même les a refusées, ce que vous reconnaissez d’ailleurs. Je ne vois donc pas où est l'insatisfaction. Concernant le parking, dans un échange de mails, je vous ai indiqué que vous pouviez garer où bon vous semblait (envoi du plan des parkings publics gratuits ou payants de Sisteron), ne vous incitant nullement à prendre le garage privé. A l'arrivée, vous m'avez dit être embêté car vous aviez des caisses de vin visibles. Je vous ai alors proposé de mettre la voiture à l’abri des regards, ce que vous avez accepté. Je vous ai donc emmené au garage situé à 300 m de l’hôtel. Vous en étiez rassuré. Vous saviez que c'était payant (10 € / nuit) car vous avez lu mon mail de réservation et visiblement mon site internet sous toutes ses coutures. En l'occurrence, c'est un garage d'une seule place que l'hôtel loue 1300 € à l'année et qui nous prend de notre temps de travail (15 minutes aller et retour) au détriment de l’accueil d’autres clients. C'est donc un service + au même titre que la vente d'une bouteille de vin ou de champagne. De plus, il serait gratuit, où serait le "privilège" de celui qui le réserve ? Mais ce qu'il faut également souligner, est que, le lendemain, vous m'avez tardivement annoncé que vous ne le gardiez finalement pas alors que je l'avait refusé à un autre client qui en avait besoin, et vous m'avez imposé de garder vos bouteilles de vin dans la cuisine, ce que je n'ai pas vraiment le droit de faire (conditions d'hygiène drastiques). Pour finir, vous qui n’avez jamais pris le temps de visiter ni l’hôtel, ni son patio, ni sa salle de petits-déjeuners (ceux-ci, achetés à l’extérieur, ont été pris dans la chambre), vous m’en voulez de vous avoir facturé 19€ de restauration. Faut-il rappeler que vous m’avez fait réouvrir rien que pour vous notre restaurant « La Table du Patio » pourtant fermée (ainsi que sa terrasse), et que sur les 19€, il y avait 7€ de boissons. La planche apéritif avec tout ce qui est décrit, dont le foie gras, à 12€, Tva et service compris, me semble donc raisonnable. Je n’aime guère mettre les choses au point mais il est des vérités à rétablir, surtout lorsque la note est médiocre et le commentaire injustement lapidaire. La façon dont vous m’avez parlé au moment de l’addition (pour ces malheureux 10 € de garage), particulièrement irrespectueuse au regard du temps que je vous ai consacré et des services que je vous ai rendus à votre demande, n’était pas méritée. A la lecture de votre appréciation, ma fille m’a rappelé que vous n’avez guère été plus aimable avec elle lorsque vous l’avez croisée à l’accueil. Nous ne sommes assurément pas des chiens Monsieur. Sophie.

Super friendly staff, nice room and good breakfast at a very central location. Convenient with a lockable garage as well. The whole stay was a pleasure and would definitely come back again if visiting the area.

Le Patio de Sophie has to be one of the most charming small hotels we have ever stayed in. Sophie is an interior decorator and her hotel is a reflection of her good taste. And to top it off, she is a warm and welcoming host. Sisteron should not be missed. The Citadel; the art galleries; the Saturday outdoor market. The town is a gem.
