We found this hotel while looking for somewhere central but not pricey in Melbourne, and were pleasantly surprised, whilst not huge rooms they were clean and comfortable close to Spencer Street Station and only a short walk or free tram ride within the city boundaries. Melbourne next for us will definitely be at the Hotel Sophia

Nice clean hotel at a very reasonable price in the Melbourne CBD (close to La Trobe st). Tram close by, Spencer St outlet centre only 5 minutes away. 10-15 minutes walk to Crown Casino. DFO Docklands was about a 20 minute walk. Hotel included a basic buffet hot breakfast - eggs, bacon, tomato, toast, cereals plus tea/coffee/juice. Room with own... More

Have stayed here on a number of occasions when in Melbourne to see a show. Its offers great value for money with clean rooms. Central location, and breakfast is a bonus. Staff are always friendly and only too happy to help.

Stayed here for one night while down for a AFL match.Its away from a lot of the limelight and hustle of central Melbourne and a walk of a couple of blocks from any transport. Construction was all around for redevelopment,but would only be annoying if staying in on weekdays. Room wasn't ready as I showed up at 100pm,but sat down... More

Took a punt fom tripadvisor review and more than happy. I guess it's a budget place but above it's class. Rooms small but all you could want and oh so near city centre and railway station. Breakfast is all you can eat and really good. Stayed there twice and back again next week.Well worth the money.

Friendly and helpful staff, great room and excellent value I particularly like the way they provide good quality coffee in the rooms - coffee bags, filter and pods!! And the breakfast that is included in the price is excellent.... More

I am currently staying at Hotel Sophia and I can say it is my first and last time I will ever be here. I will never recommend for anyone to stay here. I am disgusted at the customer service from the employees and have never been so angry at how I have been treat. I have paid upfront for a... More

The checkin was fast and efficient and the room very clean and fresh,There was capsule coffee machine as well as kettle and teapot. However the room was very small and you could hardly fit around the bottom of the bed to get to the other side.The bathroom on the other hand was spacious (almost same size as bedroom). However as...
