General

To please the roll call of ambassadors and celebrities, the hotel provides a menu of services that range from teddy bears for children to non-allergenic pillows. Still, the hotel's premier attraction is the Garden Court restaurant (open for breakfast and dinner daily and lunch on weekdays), which serves modern Australian cuisine with a French sensibility. Items like the salt-cured Tasmanian salmon with beetroot, seeded mustard and dill dressing or the tantalizing cheese buffet make this a local icon. For lighter fare and live jazz on some evenings, the Sofitel Lounge caters to a business crowd.

 

The hotel has a fitness center and the Lattouf Aveda Spa (go for hair styling and botanical-inspired massages and facials) is located onsite. Guests also have access to parking and Wi-Fi (fees apply).

Another Sydney internet ripoff

Would recommend Sat, Aug 2, 2014
The Sofitel would be perfect - except for the ludicrous internet charges on ANY internet access. A $12.50 charge to access the internet in the business centre! I can understand that Australian hotels charge for in-room internet, but really, charging for internet access in the business centre? Ruined an otherwise fabulous stay. Not every traveller is a corporate one that can just pass it on to a client. Also a credit card surcharge was added to the bill. Room was fantastic.

Money saver

Free wireless internet at the cafe across the road opposite Chifley.

Unfriendly hotel

Would not recommend Tue, Jan 7, 2014
Considering a very pricey hotel, not even Internet is free, you're only allowed 30 mins per 24 hrs in the lobby, how inconvenient. StAffs are unfriendly, no welcoming smile after a long 10hr flight, not even a complimentary water fountain. This hotel has the most disgusting accommodation.

Time saver

If you travel abroad Always stay in the hotel with free Internet . It's the only way you communicate with your family when you are out for business abroad.

Sydney vacation.

Would recommend Sat, Feb 2, 2013
Very clean hotel. Room was rather small but it has all of the required amenities. The location was excellent. Very close to all of the key attractions like the Rock and the Opera House. The only issue was the $25 charge per day for wireless. We moved to another hotel and the wireless was free.

New Years in Sydney

Would not recommend Wed, Jan 9, 2013
I picked this hotel so that I can see the fireworks; however, I knew that I would have to walk to see them. The only thing is that it turns out they gated off The Rocks and entrances to Circular Quay; and so, you have to get to the Rocks about an hour before the 9 pm fireworks (family friendly) to see the 12 am display too. All views behind the Quay is poor unless you stay at the hotels high above and located right behind the railway, like the Shangri La. My hotel was walking distance to the Opera House, Harbor Bridge and Hyde Park. It's a nice looking hotel. My room was mostly clean. I found hair on the tea cup, in the tub and a black smudge on my bed sheet? As for the staff and especially the concierge, very very nice, happy, funny and helpful. You have to pay for internet and there is no pool for a high end hotel.

Attractions

Circular Quay has buses and railway, and the hop of hop on tour bus for convenient public transportation. It's easier to travel by buying ticket ahead of time at any convience store...just tell them where you are going if you do not know what ticket to buy. Hotel is walking distance from restaurants and shops. Convenient location.

Lovely hotel

Would recommend Mon, Oct 22, 2012
The hotel is lovely and only a 3 or 4 block walk down to Circular Quay. it is in the middle of the business district so there are only a couple of restaurants open on the week-end, but 2 or 3 more open during the week. The concierges were extremely helpful and the accommodations were beautiful.

Exceptional

Would recommend Thu, Aug 9, 2012
This hotel is centrally located in Downtown Sydney. Close to everything you could possibly do. It is only blocks away from the Circular Quay so getting around is real easy. The room was wonderful and the staff extremely helpful when needed. I highly recommend this hotel.

Money saver

We totally enjoyed riding the ferries everywhere. It gave you spectacular views you could not see on a bus. Purchase the weekly pass and enjoy yourself.

ABSOLUTELY MARVELOUS

Would recommend Sat, Feb 25, 2012
The Hotel was lovely, the staff very friendly and the room was comfortable and cosey. I think that the only drawbacks were that there was no swimming pool and that the internet charges were UNBELIEVABLY HIGH considering that they get it free and most of the big hotels offer the internet for free to their customers. It was a great location and very, very easy to walk absolutely everywhere. Super!!!

Great location near Circular Quay!

Would recommend Mon, Nov 28, 2011
The hotel staff was very friendly, and the room was fairly comfortable. The king bed was two double beds converted into a king. It was comfortable, but the connector was lumpy in the middle. The bathroom had a heated mirror but a weird shower with only a half of a shower door that leaked water. Room service food had good proportions, but the delivery fee was a little high. We appreciated the umbrellas given to us when it was raining. The concierge helped us immensely during our stay.

Time saver

There is a pass you can buy for the train, bus and ferry lines. It helps you avoid the lines at the stations. Since the hotel is near Circular Quay, which is a transportation hub, it is easy to get around the hotel area.

I would not stay there again

Would not recommend Mon, May 30, 2011
I booked the hotel because my conference was being held there. The room had no place to put away clothes-- no bureau. No bathtub. The bed was excessively soft. There was only a down comforter-- way too hot, no blankets. The cvharge for internet was $27. For business travellers, internet should be included in the cost of the hotel room. Breakfast was $39, and not very good.
