Hotel Sophia was excellent value and central for all things that interested myself and partner on a getaway to Melbourne. Particularly impressed with having a free hot breakfast every morning. We definately will be back and have already started to plan a return with friends.

The Hotel is perfectly located and the service friendly and efficient. The breakfast gave us a great start to the day and provided a good variety of hot and cold options. The bar was an added benefit and the local feel on Friday night was most enjoyable.

This is a great three star hotel. No its not four star as they self rated but a solid three. I booked and panicked from all the negative reviews on here. The room was clean, it had enough room for what we needed, the staff were nice (allowing us to leave luggage even) and it was all we needed. Three... More

Not boutique, just small. Better value to be had in Melbourne.

Waited 20 mins for someone to check us in, only to be sent to the wrong room. When we eventually got to the right room it was right next to a building site and was very small and outdated. DO NOT STAY HERE! I can't stress how bad this place is!

Buidling works taking place on the roof. We were not made aware of this via email on booking. Only place they have mentioned this is on their website in small print. I didnt book through the website. Nor was the distruption 'minor' at 8am on Saturday morning, it was like the drilling was through my headboard. Room very basic, small... More

I agree with other reviewers this is not a 4 star hotel, rather just a budget accommodation . I had 2 main problems with this place: 1 location- situated half a block away from 2 mens clubs. I was not comfortable walking at night around the area. 2 unfreidliness of the staff. When I got there I was not welcomed... More

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
