it was only 10 O'clock and we were in Brisbane, we wanted morning tea, looking straight at the Sofitel, of which I have written about previously, we decided to go in for a croissant and flat white in the lobby lounge. Great Idea! The amazingly Columbian barperson, Julien, could not have been more attentive and accommodating of our needs, the... More

I stayed here for Riverfire, as I got a great price using Accor Points. It was an easy place to access public transport, and the river. The room was a little dated but the bed was beautiful and comfortable, which is just what I needed. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

Spent a delightful weekend with friends staying at the Sofitel. We stayed on a deal that included breakfast as well as a free drink & some other vouchers. The hotel still oozes class despite its years & proximity to Central Station is a bonus. Rooms were neat & spacious, the bathroom well fitted out, and all very clean. Good variety... More

I think this is probably one of the only Sofitel Hotels around Australia and New Zealand that I have not stayed in. Unfortunately I'd probably place it at the bottom of the heap. Not because of bad service or a misadventure ... it just didn't feel as five-star as it should. I stayed in a Luxury Club Sofitel Room with... More

From the moment you arrive you are treated as a special guest and made to feel important. Reception experience - excellent. Room quality - bedding, layout and bathroom accessories - excellent.

I took my mum to stay and we were so impressed with the friendliness of the staff. The rooms were absolutely beautiful and all the facilities were well maintained. The location was convenient to central Brisbane so that you could come and go as you pleased. We dined in the Prive 249 and it was sensational.
