Oh my god I have stayed in budget hotels similar to Sophia value for money - however this is the worse off hotel I have EVER experienced! Be prepared to be disappointed firstly the receptionist(s) are in the wrong industry they lack hospitality, warmth, professionalism, knowledge of the city, customer service and tad rude..applauding! Not once did I see the... More

Stayed here on the 12th of December for one night! And very glad it was just one night. Arrived back from Bangkok and got to the hotel at 1pm knowing that check in was not until 2. We arrived to a "back in 5 minutes" sign and waited around 20 minutes. Finally a very Rude member of staff appeared and... More

The main reason we booked this hotel was a price and a proximity to our relatives. The room (standard double) was so small that it was really hard to get around the bed. The bathroom was mouldy and really needed a good cleaning with the bleach. I asked the housekeeper to do so several times, but it was never cleaned... More

Nice, clean rooms but the walls were so thin, you could hear EVERYTHING in the rooms next door. Also, our room overlooked a construction site and the pole driver started at about 6:00am. There was no warning of this prior to booking so beware. No sleep ins here! Other than that, hotel was okay.

This is the 3rd time my girlfriends' & I have stayed at Hotel Sophia for a weekend trip into the CBD. We catch a show, do some serious shopping at Harbourtown in Docklands and have a relaxing time. The rooms are very good value for money, they are clean and comfortable. There is a basic, warm breakfast which is provided... More

The bathroom was mouldy and stained in the grout, it needed a good scrub with the bleach. The room itself was ok and reasonably priced however the coffee pod machine did not have cups that would fit into it. We were never given more coffee or milk. One of the days our bed was made but the decorative covers were... More

Not too bad for the price. Location not central but within walking distance to city centre. Breakfast included in package. Reasonably sumptous hot food but nothing fancy. Room rather small with bed against the wall.

I stayed at the hotel sophia for two nights. The location is great as it is walking distance to almost everything and especially to the train station southern cross , Etihad stadium and victoria markets. The rooms are small and basic but they are clean and the breakfast had a lot more than i was suspecting for a budget hotel.... More
