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

at late notice we booked this hotel during the very busy Australian Open time. we were pleased to find it just over a block from southern cross station, which is serviced by metro and suburban trains and also the Skybus from the airport. 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

My partner and I recently stayed a week at this hotel. Whilst we hardly spent any time during the day in our room, we were impressed with the service during the time we spent at the hotel. Breakfast was well appreciated and the food was just what we needed to start our busy day. Location was great and getting to... More

On arrival i soon discovered there was nothing boutique or 4* about the place (grotty dressing gown in a closet and pictures of Med places on the walls do... More

Not suitable for anyone! No desk, no chair, no towel rails or hooks. Bed takes up whole room, can't even walk around the bed. To top it off a party in adjacent courtyard kicked off at 1am to 3am with complete disregard to anyone in the area during a work night. Never stay there again - horrible.

These guys baffle me really, to me they run a clean hotel, it is quiet and in a good location. But they do not seem to be there for service - 1. I rang at last minute to book a room for two nights. I was told that all details were on the internet and to book via that, even... More

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for one night and it was pathetic. I had made a booking for a standard room with a queen sized bed and we were given a tiny room with two separate single beds right next door to a shared bathroom used by guests in 'single' rooms. When we informed staff that there... More
