    Bit of a shocker really”

    Well it was £45 a night. So there's not much you can say really, but even for that price it was shockingly bad. I arrived at 10.30pm and stood pressing the bell intermittently for about 20 minutes. I'm fairly sure the staff were downstairs watching football as I could hear it on the TV. The room was cold, with one non working radiator. It had a portable heater which also didn't work. The bathroom was filthy and the toilet seat was hanging off. Unless you are a carpenter, going to the census and there is no room anywhere else for you and your heavily pregnant virgin bride... I'd give it a wide berth. Because it's not gold, the smell wasn't frankincense and it's more ergghh than myrrh.

    Terrible! The room was dirty, shower drain was blocked, clumps of someone else's hair in the bed, the toilet seat wasn't even attached and the photos from hotels combined were completely different.

    Good chance to stay in good location”

    Excellent location , Good manager and managress

    the stay was nice, i stayed in a small room but when i asked to move to a bigger room the manager's wife agreed and i moved when a bigger room was available , I thank the manager Hasseeb and his wife for that , but they need to teach the workers there to be flexible as they are .

    Basic hotel, at a reasonable (but not cheap) rate”

    proximity to Paddington Station

    Basic accommodation, but not particularly cheap. Booked for proximity to Paddington Station, but I think you could do a lot better at any of the other hotels in the area, for the same rate (or less).

    I ended up in a different hotel”

    They made the effort to find me an alternative room.

    I was booked at the hotel Sophia via AGODA web page- a prepaid room, however when I arrived there was no room for me !! The receptionist was a nice person and tried to contact the owner to find what solution they have for me. It took 2 hours to get me a room in a different hotel, thus this was after 2 failed trials to get me a room in 2 hotels. One of the hotels they were trying to bring me in was cheaper than the one I booked and paid for, but I ended up in a better hotel that Hotel Sophia.

    The stay was so so.”

    Location is good as its near the train station

    Not the most wonderful but its a budget hotel. What to expect. I was put in a room that is just next to the train station. You can see the platform and the people on the platform so its a bit noisy. Luckily I am not in the hotel most of the time and only uses the hotel to shower and sleep.

    To go home

    The room was tiny, it stank and the window which overlooks the tube station does not shut. Needless to say I didn't get to sleep. The member of staff at Breakfast did not greet guests and we were left to fend for ourselves. It was the worst hotel I've stayed in.
