Whilst this hotel is far from first class the value for money is second to none. $100 AUD on average includes a cooked brekky. if you are looking for opulence then this is not for you BUT if you want somewhere with value then jump on it. Rooms are small but clean and tidy, good quality linens on the beds... More

Pros - Good clean room though it is small - Very good location - Price wise good as well Cons - Service almost non existent If you are looking to roam around in Melbourne without spending too much time in the room, then this a very good option. Only thing I would recommend to this hotel would be to atleast... More

we booked this online and although it was in the centre of clubland it was okay for our stay. The room was a bit small but you get what you pay for. Staff were helpful and Breakfast was good. When we were there the lift broke so it kept us fit climbing 4 flights of stairs.

The Hotel seems to have had some recent renovations and had strong new paint smell. Room was tidy and simple as expected for the low cost. However the water pressure in the basin was little more than a dribble (shower was ok though), and the TV remote was also intermittent. The housekeeping was inconsistent with the first day being quite... More

We spent two nights in Hotel Sofia, after a satisfying experience two years ago. Unfortunately, we were this time very disappointed by the quality of the hotel in general and its staff in particular. Rooms, although clean, are very noisy, there is a door between most of them (all of them according to the staff), so that you can hear... More

SOFIA'S WON'T REFUND US OUR DEPOSIT ($150) OR ROOM ($95.50) WHEN WE DIDN'T STAY! We booked into Sofia's having stayed before. However this time the room was small, and in poor condition (e.g. toilet roll holder broken off). The room smelt and when the airconditioner was turned on it made it worse. We rang and asked reception if they had... More

I stayed at Hotel Sofia last week on a standard double room, paying $89 for it - and that includes a hot breakfast. It was definitely good value. And the location is also excellent. I'm making it my preferred place to stay now if and when I do have to stay in the Melbourne CBD in the future. Yes, it's... More

Hotel Sofia offered poor hospitality, in a rather tired and run down premises. Noisy plumbing throughout the night was drowned out after 6.30am by noise from a large construction site immediately behind the building! Breakfast was indifferent, and although supposedly served until 9.30am the heaters were being turned off by 9.15am on one morning!

I am currently staying in the hotel with my wife and 6 year old. We left early this morning, came back in the afternoon and the room was not made up. We are 100% certain we put the "make up room sign" on. When we explained the situation, the front desk said they would make the room up. When we... More
