Sofitel Hotel Melbourne

by John on August 21, 2012

Recently visited Melbourne for a 5 night stopover and was more than impressed with the Sofitel Hotel, located at the top end of Collins St. This was our first stay at the Sofitel after being recommended by friends who’s opinion was spot on. You may be surprised at the price for such a good hotel. Very affordable.

We usually stay near the top end as it is close to theatres, easy waking distance to Burke St Mall, MCG and parks. We had never considered the Sofitel before, yet would now probably make this our first choice.

We were upgraded from a bay view room to a corner room on the 47th floor. Great views to the east and north as well as the city itself. Rooms were spacious and contain all the necessary amenities one expects from a good hotel. The king bed was soft and comfortable, pillows just right.

We didn’t get time to dine in the restaurant. We did use room service one night and it was more than we expected. Excellent food, quick service, all you can ask.

If you need a hotel in Melbourne, give the Sofitel a try. All rooms are above the 35th floor so you don’t get any street noise. It’s in a good location and the price should suit most budgets. Five star all the way.
