Had a great four nights at this hotel. Room was very clean and comfortable, room service was above and beyond what was expected (the after dinner mints left with the towels in the morning were delightful). WiFi connection was a mere $1 per hour, breakfast...More
I don't know what people expect of budget hotels; I want clean, cheap and convenient. Hotel Sophia ticks these boxes. The room was fine. I have paid more for smaller and less clean (New York many years ago). Service was fine too and the location...More
Although the hotel itself has pretty snug rooms, the rooms are clean and kept that way for the duration, the staff are wonderful - helpful, responsive, warm. If you consider the price you pay for a room, with a king sized bed, in the city...More
Firstly, they took the $150 from our credit card a day before we even arrived and when questioned they his shrugged and said it was just what they did. Then the room was dirty, the bed was unbearably uncomfortable with springs protruding from it.. we...More

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.
