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
Great view of MELBOURNE if you get here before sundown.
Food is very nice, service can be average on occasion. Front house has been disastrous at times.
Steak is my favourite here and the wine list works well.
My wife and I stayed here during our stay in Melbourne and enjoyed it immensely. We were on the 43rd floor and had just an amazing view of the city. We didn’t spend much time in the hotel itself as we wanted to enjoy the 4 days outside as much as possible. The concierge at the hotel was and outstanding, can’t remember his first name, but, the last name is unforgettable. Mr Goodchap was the concierge who kept us bust during our stay and recommended, the wine tour, restaurants, shopping etc... to a tee. The hotel is centrally located and you can walk to pretty much every major shops and restaurants in the downtown core. Thanks Sofitel, great stay and enjoyed the hospitality by all your staff.
As a silver Accor member this is my go to hotel in Melbourne. Just delightful. Spacious rooms, great facilities including coffee machine , block out windows and lovely staff. Buffet breakfast was amazing and dinner in No 35 also fabulous although small menu. We will be back
It’s a beautiful hotel with really friendly staff. I asked the hotel to prepare my room for an early check-in, the front office manager, Linda, emailed me two days before my arrival to get all the details, and voila, I was able to get into my room in the morning without any issue. Linda even left a personalised welcome card for me in the room, and it made me feel welcomed at the place. Room is clean with a great view of Melbourne. Absolutely superb hotel!
Have stayed at this luxury hotel many times. I can never fault anything and is always a pleasure to stay. Hotel has luxury fittings and fixtures and maintenance is obviously of a high standard. From the moment you drive up to the hotel the friendly staff go out of their way to welcome you to the hotel and assist with everything to make you feel special. Rooms were well appointed and clean and tidy. Sleeping was amazing in the extremely comfortable bed with beautiful pillows and so quiet. Breakfast was amazing and had everything you could want or need. The views from the 35th floor whilst eating breakfast were spectacular. Overall would rate this hotel 5 stars and highly recommend staying with this luxury brand.
