Very basic but great value fur money! Rooms were very clean which was most important and decent continental breakfast. Bit noisy in the morning when cleaners were cleaning other rooms and could have better lighting. But would stay again :)

My wife and I are travelling/working in Australia for a year and booked at Hotel Sophia for our first few day in Melbourne. The staff were very helpful and we enjoyed the tea & coffee in our room. Breakfast was lovely and our room was quiet and very comfortable. We are happy we chose this hotel and would stay again.

Room Tip: front rooms have double windows and so hardly any noise

Booked online on Hotel Sophias website. They charged the credit card 4 times 4 different rates. Called the hotel to sort it out. We were blamed for the mistake even though there is no option to book 4 rooms. We asked to cancel 3 and were told to reply via email which we did. Hotel Sophia cancelled all 4 rooms without letting us know. It wasnt till I called to confirm the cancelling of the 3 extra rooms we were told they cancelled all 4 rooms and we are not wanted to stay at the hotel incase we took it further. Thanks alot.

While the location was good, the service was pretty average and very slow. The king size bed was good but the room really wasn't big enough or shaped the right way for it to fit. Road noise was quite bad as was the noise from the other rooms - I spent half my night listening to the girls next door chatting very loudly. The hot breakfast was also quite a disappointment. Looks nice in the photos but doesn't live up to these in real life!

I booked this place for my parents who were coming to visit Melbourne for 5 nights. We joined them for 2 of those nights. We all found it a comfortable place to stay, that was amazing value for money. The staff were friendly and very accommodating with our requests, going out of their way to find suitable activities and places for my parents to visit in and around Melbourne. The breakfast was great. We all had a ball & my parents can't wait to return to Melbourne for another visit!
