We booked this hotel based on the cheapest ground package price offered by one of the travel agents here. I was sceptical when i read the reviews in Tripadvisor. But since we planned to walk around and make full use of our time in Melbourne, we didnt need expensive hotel just to sleep, bath and change. The hotel is located... More

We booked with Hotel Sophia based on the reviews in Tripadvisor. We were in Melbourne for the Australian Open. The rooms are clean but small, just enough to space to sleep & store your luggages. Bathtoom is very small. Hotel is in walking distance to Kings Cross station. City Tram- which we found very useful is just on the street... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and would have no hesitation in staying again. Situated only a couple of streets from the CBD and major train station (Southern Cross) the room was .. cosy. It wasnt huge however it had everything you would want for a short trip to melbourne such as desk, bathroom, storage space etc.. The price also... More

The hotel is located near the station, has excellent (and very clean!!) rooms. The breakfast buffet is varied and service of staff is good; definitely would stay here again!

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights. It was fairly quiet. beds were comfy and a welcoming chocolate was on the end of the bed. I found reception friendly and the owner very nice. very handy having the pub next door and accessing it from Hotel Sophia without having to go on the footpath. The breake was great.... More

I was quite disappointed with this hotel. When we walked into reception the man walked away from us. After waiting a few minutes someone finally checked us in. Our room was clean but during the night, I could hear the people talking in the next room and in the early morning, I was woken by loud building works outside. The... More

Good point close to skybus station. Also breakfast was included. Poor views, difficulty in understanding accent of the hotel staff, from an english person's point of view. Bed linen had not been thoroughly checked - dry blood found on duvet. If returned to Melbourne city would look for alternative accomodation.

Very close to Southern Cross Skybus terminal in the city. Great friendly staff member who greeted me on the doorstep at midnight - he'd been cleaning the window ledges. And yes the rest of the hotel rooms etc were very clean, comfortable and relaxing. I couldn;t find a swimming pool, and yes I did ask, but there wasn't one. Breakfast... More

My expectations were set way too high. The only good thing about this hotel was the location. The walls were paper thin, so we could hear everything our neighbours were doing. At one point, we thought that the people above us nearly fell through through the roof, but really, they just dropped something on the floor. We werent welcomed to... More
