Considering room conditions and price, plus $6 breakfast, it offers very good value for money.

Small rooms. Not the cleanest. Some staff were friendly, others not.

Hotel Sophia is clean, comfortable and conveniently located. The reception staff appeared not to have ever checked anyone in before. Took a long time and communicated poorly. The elevator may be the slowest in Australia.

Very clean and quiet, excellent location. Rooms were efficient, simple, extra clean and straightforward. Great air conditioning in room, comfortable bed, no noise from adjacent rooms. Will definitely stay here again.

Fine for a cheap stay. Extremely basic. And odd policies of $150 bond. Took 5 days to be refunded into our account. Might be better if it’s explained better when making a booking and again on arrival. Reception hardly said a word.
