“Understated French elegance with outstanding views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

This was my first stay at the Sofitel Melbourne - understandable as I live in Melbourne! I chose the Sofitel as the base for a 'Melbourne weekend', with a Luxury room with corner views on the 40th floor. Spacious and elegantly appointed room with neutral decor, interesting bathroom with clear views across the Melbourne CBD from the shower!

There is some noise from the Atrium on the 35th floor, but this is only audible from the passageways, and the room was virtually noise-free. It's a shame I only had a one night stay at this beautiful hotel.

Room Tip: The corner rooms are outstanding with 120 degree views of Melbourne

One of Sofitel's most spectacular locations, especially from Club levels such as Floor 49. Club facilities and welcome are excellent, with elegant, understated service. Unless reserving a Suite, rooms are somewhat small, crammed with resources such as Bose iPod player, leaving little space for personal items or unpacking space. Club level should include free wireless internet. Innovation of Nespresso machine in-room is much appreciated. My fourth stay at this hotel, each time at Club level.

Overall our experience was great. Have stayed at the Sofitel many times & have enjoyed it immensley. Front desk service outstanding. The room & view was amazing & the bed one of the most comfortable i have ever slept in. But there were a few things we were not happy with. Having to pay for a bucket of ice i thought unacceptable. We also had breakfast there on the 35th floor - which unfortunatley was cold & the coffee was disappointing.
