Listed as a four star accomodation, it is far from that. If you would like to be talked down to, patronised, and made to feel like you are causing the hotel staff a huge inconvenience then this is your place. If you prefer to be...More
Look, this place IS budget, there is no doubt about that. We chose to overlook all the signs as we researched on it beforehand and there's a pretty fair consensus that it is good value for money. It looks absolutely terrible from the outside and...More
I stayed here for 4 days and have no complaints or regrets.
Great location in the heart of the Melbourne CBD and a couple of minutes on foot from the tram stop, within the free tram zone. It's about a 5 minute walk from the...More
We visit Melbourne, from Tasmania, several times each year and always stay at the Sophia.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
I paid $6 for the breakfast too, only free after I have stay 7 days there and extended my stay for another 5 days for my son stay at Sophia hotel to settle into University of Melbourne student's accommodation.

Gday. I think they have a policy of a deposit taken from the credit card for everyone which is held. I checked my bank online and it was taken as "pending", but never went through as a charge. But ask them if youre unsure. I know they are not great communicators but they were honest with me and I didn't get any deduction.
Hope this helps.
