Hotel Description

The hotel rests on the west end of Melbourne’s central business district, surrounded by great restaurants, bars, and nightlife. It is also close to the Skybus Super Shuttle if you need to zip around town in a hurry. For travelers to Flagstaff Gardens, the Hotel Sophia has you covered with just a short walk. If you’re a stay-up-late kind of traveler, the bar will set you up with great cocktails and wine selection, a pool table, and a rich atmosphere with a charm dating all the way back to the early 1900s. For travelers interested in a solid street-side location, close proximity to the central business district, and a cool bar, Hotel Sophia won't disappoint.

customer service is poor

location is close to public transport, cafe is nearby, that's the only good thing of this hotel
Sorry to say but the staffs in the hotel were not helpful. We have car with us this trip as there's children with us therefore we decide to do so. We're not sure whether the parking lot opposite the hotel could park overnight or not. Therefore, tourist will usually get advise from the hotel staff but unfortunately the staff is seems refuse to help and just ask us to read the sign ourselves! OMG...what kind of customer service was that. Anyway, besides this we also disappointed with the room as it's not too clean and the bathroom is sharing. And we couldn't access the bathroom with our card. In cause us and the kid skip our shower during our stay there. Poor thing..

We enjoyed our one night at this hotel. It was close to public transport and skybus terminal, room was fine for the price paid. Would stay again.

Not As Good As The Pictures

location, cheap breakfast
The location was great for people going to Melbourne! The cheap breakfast was great. But we requested a King bed because of my partners height and this wasn't followed through despite the staff saying they would make sure this would happen. The room is extremely small in comparison to the picture. The hotel is old, which is usually okay, but the picture made the rooms look modern. If you are looking for a cheap room, not planning on spending any time in the hotel room, and will be going to the footy, this hotel is great! Just don't be deceived by the pictures given. The self reported 4 stars is also over rated.

Location, staff and value for money
The hotel located very close to southern cross station and other Victoria market. Lovely staff and good price for the location I guess. Bed is quit big which fit both me and hubby plus a baby lol. Will stay again if I go to Melbourne again.

Friendly Staff
Once arrived airport, the airport customer service introduced us to take starbus, which will drop us in front of the hotel door. It cost $18 per pax, same price as skybus. Hotel room is small but quite comfortable. The hotel need to hire more staff as the receptionist seems need to do a lot of thing and causing there is always no staff at the counter. But we can press the ring to alert the staff. Location quite ok, just a few minutes walk to the free tram zone station. Near to Queen Victoria Market too.

Stay was all that i needed

City location, price and proximity to public transport
My stay was just fine. I just wanted somewhere to stay for a couple of nights while i was in the city visiting friends. The rooms was quite small, however it had all hte amenities that i required. Outside my window was a massive construction site, however, this isnt abnormal in the Melbourne. Just be aware of that, the noise didnt bother me too much as i was only there to sleep. However the more precious may have a problem with it. Goodluck finding a room for the price of this joint though.
