This is the second time that I have stayed at the Sophia and it was just as good as the first. 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...

Well back again and same as last time, rooms not very large but very clean, beds comfortable. tiles on the floor in bathroom have some chips but clean, for what you pay well worth it. Bar down stairs serves a very good meal for lunch and price is excelent. Continental breakfast is very good, all fresh food and filling

The hotel presents ok... Reasonable facilities... Generally Pleasant staff. If you have a dust mite allergy, you might find yourself waking up not feeling that well. Unfortunately the staff are neither sympathetic or caring about this and live in denial. Breakfast was pretty average with microwaved pancakes etc.... Good location btw...

Have come to stay at Hotel Sophia on recommendation of friends. Having a few days R&R in city & watching Strictly Ballroom The Musical. Staff are pleasant, rooms and hotel generally are very clean and free breakfast is a bonus. Room rates are very reasonable considering it's in the CBD. Can't wait to come back to this little gem!

I had read reviews before staying so I walked in with little expectations. Reception was polite and the place was clean - shared bathrooms were surprisingly well maintained. I would like to have given the place 4 stars rating but unfortunately I stayed on a Saturday night and ended up with barely any sleep (lots of clubbing opposite the hotel)... More

I want to start by saying how much I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Sophia. During my stay the elevator was broken, as elevators sometimes are. Having worked in buildings with elevators I am aware that it can take a while to get a technician out to fix them. I'm also aware that most of us should definitely take the... More

Never, ever again! I think I would rather sleep in the back of my car than ever go near this "hotel" again. A last minute booking due to some changes in plans. After I booked, arrived and paid in full for my room, the young man at reception handed me my room card, informed me that I was on the... More

This hotel was booked due to its proximity to Etihad Stadium in Melbourne. This was a 'budget' hotel at best and we get that - but room was at rear of the hotel - floodlight shining into our room window. Some sort of pump or engine started up every 15 minutes keeping us awake. No lamps next to beds -... More
