    Location

    Although it is under construction, but it shouldn't be starting at 8am in the morning! Futher i never stay at a hotel which charge local phone call per minutes, this is absolutely rediculous and it is definitely a scamb.

    We chose Hotel Sophia for its proximity to Southern Cross Station. We needed to overnight in Melbourne for an early international flight the following day.

    Room was very small, difficult to get to window side of the bed.

    The only thing we "liked" about this hotel was the fact we were able to get a bed for the night. We had to travel to Melbourne at short notice for my wife to attend a medical procedure and due to the rugby match everything was booked out .We saw the Sophia and booked through necessity. We noted later that the room we were charged $700. for was usually $190.00. This equates to triple plus cost for one night an absolute disgrace!!! Particularly for what was provided.$190.00 Maybe at a pinch $700 no way!! Breakfast was dreadful, poorly presented and frankly quite embarrassing! Anyway dont ask me for a reference for this poor excuse for a hotel. (at least the bed was clean)..

    The service was appalling,no butter at breakfast they run out at 7:30am!,the beds were two singles put together,the ironing board was broken,the noise was unbelievable and got no sleep! The tv only got Brisbane channels!,my deposit took four days to come back to my bank account. I have watched faulty towers but now can say I have stayed.........!

    Proximity to city and public transport services. very central to all city sights & attractions.Useful having the bar / pub style food attached to the hotel to unwind in at the end of a busy day sight seeing.

    first room had a noisy compressor from the airconditioning so sleeping was difficult due to noise. Second room ok, both rooms clean & well presented. staff swapped rooms without any questioning.

    I booked my ticket before checking the reviews and was shocked at how many people said negative things about Hotel Sophia. We purchaed a double room and was given a tripple room that had 1 king size bed and a single. The room was large enough and yes we could hear our neighbours having a shower and talking etc... The hotel was clean and staff nice. We were looking forwards to having a parma and beer in the pub and were disapointed to find it closed on a Saturday night! Breakfast was included in the price. Plenty of cereals, fruit, croissants, toast and bacon and eggs. Overall we were happy with our stay and will be staying there again if we decide on a last minute get away.

    Breakfast hot food was just luke warm. Makes me wonder when they last had a health inspectors visit as they would not have allowed the warm bain maree.

    When I arrived I found that my reservation had been cancelled and no notice was given to me prior to my arrival. The hotel was able to accommodate me in a room which did not suite me with a shared bathroom. I booked alternate accommodation and did not continue my stay at the Sophia.

    The room had nothing except a bed and a very small cupboard.

    Great value for money ! Modern budget Boutique Hotel with all you get from a 4 star hotel . Buffet breakfast with chilled atmosphere. Lovely !

    I have stayed before and have been very happy both times. The beds and pillows are really comfortable and the rooms modern and clean. The location is fantastic and the price reasonable.

    There were other noisy guests during the night.
