Booked this hotel via our tour agency. The room is very very small, the location is quite far from the main city area though it's within walking distance to the QVB market. The breakfast is below average but still edible for non fussy guests. Wifi costs $4/hr. Overall, no complain for that kind of price but I will look for... More

We stayed here for two nights and it exceeded my expectations. It is within walking distance to the rail station and the trams, and it is near to a restaurant serving halal dishes (Namaste), so that's a plus. At first I was intimidated by a couple of gentlemen's club and adult hotline services along the road, but it was unfounded... More

This is a very affordable hotel offering a variety of rooms to suit all budgets. My room (standard double with ensuite) had all the basic essentials. It was clean and a good size. The paint work was a little tired and the TV was postioned too high on the wall. These were the only minor downsides to the room. The... More

Made a booking with hotel club 6 weeks prior and paid in full for 2 rooms. Upon check in to hotel Sophia, reception wanted my credit card to hold a $150 security bond. As I booked 2 rooms they would be holding $300. This money would not be freed for 3-5 working days. As my credit card is a credit/debit... More

We booked our room on findaroom.com 2 weeks prior to our trip. We read through all of the guidelines which said that we needed our license and booking confirmation form to check in. Upon arrival we noticed on the counter that it said you needed an approved credit card to check in. This we understood as most places require an... More

We had an amazing time in Melbourne. Sophia hotel is ideally located, has fantastic service, friendly staff and great rooms. The hotel's restaurant is very reasonably priced and the food is superb. I would advise anyone who wants excellent value for money and a quiet location yet close to the center of town to stay at hotel Sophia!

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and cleanliness of the bedroom amd bathroom. The bed was large and comfortable although there was not much space left in the room! Tea and coffee provided was good quality and the hot breakfast a bonus. The staff were helpful and efficient and the location most convenient.

I read the review before confirmed by booking online for my vacation in April, expect the room will be smaller than a normal hotel room and could be easy to hear the noise from next room. However, i still picked them for their a slightly cheaper price with 4 star rating. I am so regret now and would rather pay... More
