The worst hotel i ever been. Dirty, no cleaning, bad smell in the bedrooms, also bedrooms too small. Not a single positive thing to appoint except the location. Very noisy. Defenitively Avoid it! Better to pay a little more, and stay in a decent hotel.

We were shocked and sicked by how terrible this property was as we had believed the 'good' comments on tripadvisor. The comments put onto this site to say how wonderful the property was should be checked out. Maybe someone from tripadvisor should also go and check out this property. The acrid smell of stale cigarette smoke and sewerage odour coming... More

I stayed there for two nights. Booked single en-suite but they upgrade me with a double bed. Room have all basic facilities. Breakfast was continental. Best part is the location and staff. They were very helpful. If you like a short stay then this is your place as every thing is so close by and transportation is excellent.

This place is filthy. Our room stank of mould so bad we had to leave the windows wide open all night. Couldn't tell u about breakfast as we couldn't eat food in somewhere so dirty, so checked out first thing. Didn't even shower as that too was filthy. We slept on the bed in our clothes. Apart from the location... More

Stayed there for one night as our normal hotel was fully booked. Gr8 location right next to the tube and main rail station but that's the best thing I can say although the staff were very friendly and helpful. The whole decor of the hotel and room was dire, our room was dirty and smelly, an extension lead fed our... More

We checked in at 11pm and saw a man taking a prostitute to his room which the staff were clearly fine with. The room was so dirty it looked like it needed the CSI team - the walls were covered in brown splatters, there was damp on the ceiling with cracking plaster, thick dust under the beds. The sheets didn't... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in November and it was a disaster. The place was filthy, the window wouldn't close, the bed was broken. No bins changed. Very unsafe and we were misled by other reviews. We did not stay there for any of our trip, we left immediately. It was disgraceful. I would never recommend this to anyone... More

I truly wish I read trip advisor before booking here. It was horrible. Sure it was cheap & near Paddington Station, but damn! how they are still allowed to be operational astounds me. The front desk was rarely manned, the carpet throughout the place is disgusting and a tripping hazard, the stairs WILL collapse one day, the curtains barely covered... More

The only redeeming feature of the loosely titled 'Hotel" Sophia is the fact that it is in London and conveniently situated to Paddington station, other than that I can see no other reason why anyone would stay here, I certainly won't be again. I am well used to all classes of accommodation all over the world but this really is... More
