Really disappointed with our stay at Hotel Sophia, considering it wasn’t super cheap. Very dated and hallway floors creaked very loudly. Room was TINY! Not an exaggeration. Two of us found it hard to move around the room as it was only space for one person in any space at one time. The bed was supposed to be a king, however, was much smaller. The shower was a trickle of water and the basin tap sprayed in different directions when turned on. Room had coffee pod machine with coffee pods, other instant tea and coffee. Fridge with milk provided. Linen and towels were fresh and clean. Bathroom had shampoo, conditioner, hand wash, hand cream. No hair dryer (maybe be important to know for some). Not the most convenient location as it wasn’t on a tram line so had to walk in the rain with our luggage.

Friendly, well maintained, stylish family run hotel. The best king bed, so comfy. We arrived very late but had such a good sleep. Small, cosy, clean room, had everything we needed. Excellent value. Will stay there again.

6/10 Good

Good location but not quite stay.
The hotel soundproofing is terrible. Guest talking outside along the corridor can he heard clearly. Other than the soundproofing, every else is great. Near Southern cross street terminal. Can go anywhere easily.
