        Very close to paddington station and quiet for London!

        Room was extremely small and shabbily decorated; bed barely a double size bed and far too soft; the bathroom was very small- the toilet leaked and there was barely enough room for an adult to wash in the shower as it was so narrow. The continental breakfast was not what was advertised, was poorly presented, little to no level of service and of an extremely poor quality.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        We really enjoyed the hotel's location; it is just around the corner from Paddington Train Station and within walking distance of many interesting places in London. Hyde Park is just 5 minutes away, while Oxford Street and Notting Hill are also within walking distance. The hotel is situated at a small square and there are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops in the vicinity.

        While the hotel is in a great location, the level of comfort leaves somewat to be desired. This ranges from small things like short & thin curtains which don't block out much light or a clogged drain in the shower (smelly), to a spring box mattress in which you can count every single spring ... This hotel comes without elevator, double windows, airco and the like. It is a lively neighbourhood and if you are in one of the front rooms you will hear all the street noises even on the top floor (fourth). So on a summer's day you may find yourself choosing between an open windown and lot's of street noise or a quiet night in a stuffy room.

        The breakfast and leaving.

        Room was no bigger than shoe box, the shower terrible! I was supposed to have been given an en suite, I didn't expect to run across the landing to share toilet with other residents. Fightened to move on bed incase it collapsed! I didn't feel very secure in the room, so much so I propped suitcase against door. Felt as if I could put my money to better use.

        The view from the window and the ginseng perfumed bath products. Breakfast is descent too.

        Too much noise from the other rooms. Poor decoration.

        Close in proximity to Paddington station.

        I was uncomfortable with the door lock being a thumbbolt only, not a deadbolt. Also, there was no phone in the room, and international travelers do not always have a mobile phone available for use.

        The location of the hotel is fantastic! Super easy to get from Heathrow airport. Very easy to get to Oxford street and Hyde park. Near is located an underground station Paddington. Nice square in front of the hotel, very green. A lot of different cafes, two stake houses, two bars and so on. The adapter for the electric point was free. The towels were changed every day.

        Mice!!!! =) there are mice in the rooms! Running around. We had problems with the hot water, but it was repaired very quickly. The rooms are very tiny. The furniture is rather old. We had two rooms: one had a little kettle and had a fan, the second had a big kettle and had no fan at all.

        Web site photos did not reflect the room quality which was very shabby and the carpet was not clean

        It was in a great location near the tube and rail stations. Breakfast was included which was a pleasant surprise and although it was of the continental variety it was very good. There were lots of good restaurants and pubs on the doorstep. I'd recommend the San Marco (Italian) and the Angus Stakehouse. Francis, one of the managers, was particularly helpful, friendly & efficient. His attention made our holiday all the more enjoyable. The only downside was the noise at night. It is a busy location and the windows aren't double glazed, so I'd recommend you buy earplugs. They worked for us. All in all we had a great time and The So certainly is very good value for money.

        The bed was very bad. The noise on street too.

        Central location, friendly staff

        Lack of elevator, breakfast very basic

        Friendliness of staff

        Tv didn't initially work - no batteries in tv remote. Iron brought up without ironing board. Restaurant recommended (which has contract with Hotel) gave poor service - waited ages and no apologies, etc
