Finding the place was easy. Booking in was hassle-free. The rooms were very small but very clean. Breakfast was a great help to start the day off well. Handy location, close to tram stop, walking distance to Southern Cross Station and Etihad Stadium, Queen Victoria Market.

The room is a little on the small side, but great value for money, if you're not spending much time in your room. This hotel is in a good location. The linen and cleanliness are good. Breakfast is included, it has a good selection. I've stayed here a couple of times. It's a good budget option, close to shopping and... More

Although this hotel is labelled a boutique hotel I wasextrememly disappointed with it. I was lucky enough to not be near the life as the rooms near the life would be able to hear the loud elevator. I was in a room facing king street though and it was extremely loud. The king size bed was also 2 Singles pushed... More

This was my third stay at the Hotel Sophia, and I must say I couldn't find any fault with the accommodation or the staff. The room I had booked had been given to someone else, so I was upgraded to a superior room, which was very roomy, spotlessly clean with a very comfortable king sized bed. King sized beds are...

The close proximity to Etihad Stadium, Southern Cross station and Skybus terminal was the main reason for choosing this "hotel". The "Superior" Room was adequate in size and the bedding was comfortable but certainly the decor was not superior. It was on level 3 facing a construction site. The ironing board was unsturdy and paper thin. Powerpoints were difficult to... More

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...
