“Great location in business district”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

This is a good hotel, and is at the level of what you would expect of a Sofitel. However, breakfast is expensive and not worth the expense. The room was large and well equipped, nothing to complain about but also nothing to rave about.

Room Tip: High floor for good views

An ordinary, business class hotel. Nothing more, nothing less.
In need of a refurbishment. The location is great, at least it allows one to escape the confines of the hotel in search of Melbourne's fabulous eateries. The views out to the sea from the upper rooms is a tonic.
Look elsewhere.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

We recently returned from a trip to Europe and the middle East and stayed in many different Hotels, and comparing hotels arround the world The Soffitel in Melbourne should not be calling itself a five star hotel from the point of veiw of price, service, and facilities. The facilities in the room are average, in particular they have tried to be "tricky" with technology by providing a touch screen device beside the bed to controll lights and TV. This is impracticlal as it is "wired" and cannot be moved from the bed side, as well as presuposes everyone has perfect eyesight. The same goes for the light switches designed to drive you mad. Our room was not "turned down" for the evening and the cliamte control was difficult to use and ours did not turn off. What five star hotel does NOT have a swimming pool? The lobby bar appears to be never open. All in all the price is exorbitant for what you get.
