A Hotel in a Chapel : History of the place

Transforming a Chapel into a designer hotel was an enormous challenge for the owners of the Sōzō Hotel to undertake from 2009. Completely charmed by the setting of the Chapel overladen with history, 630 m² of surface within 17 meters of roof top, they decided to renovate and refurbish and so give the Chapel a new identity.

Gradually, this listed heritage building in Nantes, Notre Dames des Anges, is transformed, respecting the walls of the Chapel built between 1883 and 1888, and finally in April 2012, the Sōzō Hotel opens its doors to the public. The charm of the stone vaults and the original stained glass windows blends into undoubtedly contemporary decoration. Each piece of furniture is carefully chosen from the work of the most famous names in the world of design : Starck, Pantom, Paulin, Eames, Bouroulec, Aarad, Ingo Maurer,... All flourishing in the refined ambiance, of contemporary works of art and materials from the 'last generation'.

In 2015, the new facilities appeared : a new suite, a relaxation area and a 'high tech' seminar room, offering you an even more satisfying experience.
