First the good news. Hotel Sophia is pretty well located. Not the best part of the CBD (the 'gentlemen's clubs' nearby are a clue that it may not be wise to walk around too much late at night) and King Street carries a lot of morning traffic, but only a short walk to all the Melbourne CBD has to offer...

The walls are very thin, could hear the people next door and upstairs. Just as well I had ear plugs packed. The breakfast has everything you need and more. The staff were obliging, nothing was too much trouble. The pub next door was great, had a nice feel. They need to either put curtains on the small window or replace... More

I stayed in this hotel for 6 nights. I found out about this hotel from visa card promotion and did an online booking. Upon arrival (noon time - indicated this information when made the online booking) I have to wait at the check in counter for more than 20 minutes. Nobody was around at the check in counter. The check... More

We arrived very late at night and the service was welcoming and efficient. We were really impressed by the level of comfort and cleanliness of the room as we'd booked online without knowing what to expect. The value for money was terrific, with a lovely buffet breakfast included in the price of the room. The location was convenient to the... More

Hotel Sophia was a great hotel to stay at on our recent trip to Melbourne. It was located conveniently to shopping, public transport and attractions. The rooms were large and clean and the beds were comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was very nice. Overall, definitely a recommended hotel for a short stay in Melbourne.

We booked online through Hotel Sophia's website so on arrival only had to show ID before receiving our room keys. We'd booked a double room but received a triple which was clean and neat. There was plenty of space to move around in the room, which was equipped with a large desk, TV, air-con and wardrobe with ample room. The... More

Stayed 4 nights, and found the htoel well appointed and with helpful staff. Close to trams and short walk from Southern Cross (where airport bus arrives) and to city centre. My room was comfortable, and well air-conditioned. Everywhere very clean. Good breakfast. Could be improved with stronger lights in room for writing desk and bathroom, and instructions in room for...
