I stayed one night at this boutique hotel. A real steal for the price for a double room with ensuite and included breakfast. The hotel is close to all the sites and restaurants you would like. Room was not huge but was clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. Staff and check-in need a little work but are... More

This was a pleasant surprise, good location, a trying to provide good experience is the Hotel culture, excellent value and the breakfast !! - what a great provision to start a new day in Melbourne. I found the Hotel clean, away from noisy trams at night. Its clearly a project in progress, despite the nearby construction making the area a... More

This is my first stay here. First, the good points: - great location - we were supplied with a teapot, coffee plunger and a coffee pod machine in the room which was lovely. I didn't see a kettle though, although we didn't use the in room amenities. - toiletries were ample and a hairdrier is supplied. - iron and ironing... More

I think maybe the people that own this hotel are from another country and don't know how to relate to tourists very well , the girl at check in wasnt very forthcoming with any information, apart from breakfast wasn't included in the fee and check out was 10am , but wasn't rude , the twin beds we requested were available...

Waited for ages to check in. Rang the bell for 10 minutes then ended up calling the hotel. Very unapologetic & rude. Our booking confirmation included breakfast but I had to challenge the receptionist, if I hadn't she wouldn't have honored it even though I had it in writing. I spoke to other guests & they had the same experience.... More

Our family group of 4 booked 2 rooms, 1 standard and 1 superior room. Our first disappointment was on arrival when we were informed that our 4 night booking didn't include breakfast. The inclusion of breakfast was one of the reasons I had booked the hotel! The receptionist just kept repeating that it wasn't included and said we would have... More

Hotel Sophia is an affordable hotel in a decent location of Melbourne. It's right round the corner from the Southern Cross Station and the free City Circle Tram. That's where the good parts end. I didn't expect a whole lot when paying $95 a night however the hotel claims to be four star and it is far from that. The... More

Hotel Sophia is close to Spencer Street Station & that's about all it's got going for it. The room was tiny, there was no-where to sit anything in the bathroom, and tea & coffee wasn't stocked, & the bed was hard. Super thin walls meant the construction next door and other guests were a constant sleep interruption, and half the... More

The Hotel itself was clearly understaffed, as we waited several minutes at the reception desk to be checked in (having to ring the bell 2 times), the staff mumbled and talked quietly so you couldn’t really hear/understand them. Upon arriving in our room we found that there were bits of what we think was food left on the sheets/doona, and... More
