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
Sofitel Colin's are you lucky to have such a quality staff like Alisha at club Sofitel and Jiraporn who makes sure are is always nice, comfortable
Thank Sofitel team had a pleasant stay. Will recommend and if have a chance will definitely be back
Both times I've stayed here I've had problems with the hotel trying to overcharge me. Last time it was an outrageous amount (>$1000) for some phone calls (reduced when I complained), this time it would have been $270 for breakfasts that should have been $6 with the package I booked (reception put it right after much to and fro, but grudgingly and without apology). The welcome on the forecourt was pretty brusque as well. Grapefeuit juice at the breakfast buffet was mislabelled as something else - the waiter laughed off what is potentially a serious mix up. Housekeeping was good, with friendly staff. Overall, not a luxury service experience. Next time I'd go back to the nearby Park Hyatt or Grand Hyatt instead.
Sofitel Melbourne is good but not exciting room old style fits area truly old and small waiting time too large in the restaurant and during breakfast rush hour s the personals kindly but not efficient work I ask to have more espresso capsules without success.
It needs renovation
