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...

Summoned to Melbourne for an urgent meeting, I chose Hotel Sophia for the comfort promise of a standard double room , proximity to my meeting venue and boutique surrounds suitable to business travel. Pending floods in Queensland meant next-day check-out and return and Hotel Sophia went the extra mile in helping with regional communication and extra requests. Hotel Sophia delivers... More

It was a very pleasant and easy walk into the CBD, and is also very close to... More

Our room was basic although clean and comfortable.It was perfect for our short stay.We were in walking distance of everything we wanted to do. The breakfast was a great way to fuel our sightseeing.

Thumbs up for cleanliness! Room is spacious with clean comfortable beds. Bathroom is spotless. It looked like it was newly renovated. The room rate is reasonable. Staff is polite and helpful. The place is quiet and you can be assured of a good night sleep. Hotel Sophia is very near to tram stops including the free City Circle Tram for... More
