I will never EVER stay at this hotel again and I would not recommend anyone else stay there either. I read on their website that there was construction going on nearby but would not impact on the guests. That is not true. We could not sleep beyond 7am and, because the nature of our trip required late nights, my daughter... More

Stayed 2 nights in a 3person room. Mattress was like sleeping on a hard floor, the walls are that thin you can hear peoples private business in the room next door... However breakfast was surprisingly impressive

The walls of the room there are so thin and not sound proof at all. You can clearly hear what your next door's neighbours are talking, what tv they are watching, what song they are listening. I could hear a Chinese couple talking even at 4AM. Moreover, TWO construction sites start working at 7AM to wake you up for breakfast.... More

I booked this hotel with some trepidation - it was very cheap despite it being a very busy weekend for sport when most hotel prices had rocketed. We usually stay at the other end of town so weren't sure about restaurants either. We had no need to worry, the hotel was great and we will definitely use it again. Closeness... More

Room is very basic, with a double bed, small private bathroom and basic coffee and tea facilities. But like us, if all you were looking for was somewhere to lay your head, in walking distance to Etihad stadium, it will satisfy you. The room was clean, relatively quiet and close to transport. But most importantly it was cheap, which leaves... More

I made a reservation 10 days ago to stay 4 nights in the hotel Sophia, with free cancellation. A few hours later, I learnt that I had to postpone my journey and I immediately cancelled my reservation. But it was already too late. The hotel had taken all of the amount of the reservation. And I had a message of... More

The hotel and rooms were pretty standard which i expect you get what you pay for. The big thing is that there is a huge building site directly behind the hotel so if you want to sleep in after 7am i would not recommend staying here.

After reading all the negative reviews, I was a bit skeptical about staying here, but this Hotel soon put my mind at rest. Fantastic Room (was travelling alone) Small but great. I really had no problems with it. Cleanliness was very high on the priority of the housekeeping staff, the Reception staff were pleasant, sometimes I had a small problem... More

We have only had 36hrs here and have walked and walked and there's still so much to see. Last night we started at Henry and the Fox, Mamasita, Vapiano, canteen kitchen and finished at Marakesh a funny little place we stumbled on. All so close, the hotel is clean and tidy, staff friendly and now enjoying the included buffet breakfast.... More
