The hotel name Sophia [σοφία] means wisdom in Greek. The name is inspired by the fast-developing neighbourhood of the hotel where research and development activity are daily keywords. The Tartu University Hospital and University campus with its major educational buildings are just a short walking distance away.

The design of the hotel logo combines the word SOPHIA in Greek alphabet and the roundabout marking the hotel’s location, which is the main hub for nearest major cities.
