About Hotel Sophia


The zany and metropolitan Hotel Sophia is street-side downtown with a happening bar and artsy rooms – great for young travelers and singles. 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.

Overnight stay booking!
Very disappointed as i had traveled for over an hour on a train & get to the reception desk to check in to find out a security payment was required & tried to use my mothers credit card which was declined then i offered to pay cash & then got told no by your rude staff member who wasn't very helpful & needs to learn some customer relation skills!!!! I won't ever be booking to stay at Hotel Sophia again that's for sure & a score out of 100 i'd give it a minus 1000,,,,,,,,,

Soundproof very poor
Soundproof very poor, we can hear the noise when our neighbors closing their door. Besides, there are noise from some machines or water pipe periodically, and we can hear it clearly while in our room.

Clean, friendly staff
The place is not big but is enough for short stay. The only thing that we don't like is that we could hear the conversation next door quite clear....

Great location,
Great location right in the CBD with major train/tram stations only 1-2 blocks away. An outlet nearby, many Asian restaurants right across the street or 2-3 doors down. The hotel restaurant served decent breakfast and meals. Staff were friendly, though not very much helpful when it comes to questions about the city. Rooms are clean, Wifi was slow. All in all, good value for money, and everything is convenient there.
