Tree-lined Collins Street sits at the centre of Melbourne, and the modern Sofitel Melbourne On Collins, located at the prestigious ‘Paris end’ of Collins Street, provides the perfect home base surrounded by galleries and gardens, architectural masterpieces and the city’s finest attractions.
Bed and Bath
The 363 guest rooms and suites are decorated in rich cream palettes and feature floor to ceiling windows with panoramic views of the city. Uber-comfortable beds are complimented by a pillow menu and bedside mood lighting control. Marble bathrooms featured luxe French products from Roger & Gallet.
Sofi’s Lounge offers tea and snacks all day, as well as a high tea service starting at 2:30pm. Breakfast buffets are presented at No35 restaurant with floor to ceiling views of Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay, and also offers a modern Australian menu for dinner. Pre-dinner drinks are a must in the Atrium Bar on 35 under a fifteen-floor mirrored canopy.
In the Area
From the Paris end of Melbourne’s main tree-lined boulevard, Collins Street, you’re well placed to explore the city’s riches – elegant buildings, churches, theatres, gardens, shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and more. Try one of city’s hot no-bookings restaurants, Mamasita for Mexican taqueria, Melbourne style. While global luxury brands with flagship stores and exclusive jewelers adorn Collins Street, slip onto Flinders Lane and Little Collins Street for quirky boutiques and sophisticated local designers, like Scanlan and Theodore. Collins Quarter bar and restaurant is the unofficial barometer of the city’s financial health. If it’s pumping, so is the economy.
How to Get There
We stayed here three nights at the beginning of a tour. It’s a beautiful modern hotel with great concierge service. Our room was quiet and nice sized. The breakfast was outstanding. The hotel is located in good section of the city to go walking for sightseeing.
Hotel room is spacious and modern. Loved the teas selection especially the relax tea bag with Lavender and Camomile and Nespresso Capsule coffee machine in the room. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Especially staff name Zangi Dinh(reception supervisor) very good memory, remembered I stayed here before and tried her very best to accommodate my special request for firm mattress bed by arranging with the housekeeping staff upon my check in. And my other colleague's request for therapeutic pillow. I really appreciate and I am impressed with Zangi's memory and willingness to ensure my comfort. Even though I'm only staying for one night, Zangi insisted my request being fulfilled and having a good night sleep. Location is good too, very close to down town and along the way many designers shop close by the hotel.
booked stay online, asked for quiet room, preferably bay view rather than city view ; it was a busy weekend in melbourne, hotel quite busy, was given city view room; nothing wrong with city view per se, but somewhere close by, probably in flinders lane, there is a nightclub / dance club, and even 37 floors up, all you hear is the doof doof ....very hard to get a decent nights sleep, even allowing for the wonderful bed! great pity really, as otherwise cannot fault the sofitel.
This was one of my best trips to the Sofitel in Melbourne, especially seeing as i have stayed a there a number of time prior to becoming an Accor Plus member. The staff at both the club lounge and the restaurant were absolutely great.
As a le club accor member I was upgraded to an opera suite that was out of this world! Service was wonderful as usual. I live in the country and stay in the city on a regular basis for work. For me this property is truly a home away from home
