Nice hotel, but.......

Great hotel, but for internet users, watch out. 27.50 a day for 24 hours, but once you exceed 200MB, the speed slows down or you have to pay .10 per MB. First time i ever encountered this in Sydney.

I would recommend staying somewhere on Hyde Park. Close to shopping, trains, main buses and walking distance to about everything.

Another Sydney internet ripoff

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.

Exceptional

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-saving tip: Not Applicable

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.

Fantastic hotel

This was the best hotel of our trip. Beautifully decorated, nice room, great staff and fantastic breakfast buffet. Only bad was that we had a flight to catch early and could not enjoy the breakfast again.

It was a short walk to the Circular Quay area (water) where you could catch ferries, buses, shop, dine and sight see the Harbor Bridge and the Opera House. Not a lot of restaurants close by...had to walk to find but not far away.

Great Hotel...5 Star!

As soon as you walk in you smell the fresh flowers and know your in a 5 star or higher hotel. The entire hotel was first class. We had a balcony room overlooking the front of the hotel and gardens that allowed us to let fresh air in. The room was excellent. Nice bedding and comfortable bed. Bathroom was very modern and had lots of storage. Well worth the money paid.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Drinks: (1/2 the price of the hotel bar) go out the back entrance and turn right about 15 meters to the Bligh Hotel (bar). They have great prices for drinks and great bar food. Dinner: Chophouse Steakhouse right out the back of the hotel across Bligh street. Great steakhouse with great food. Try the Shortribs. They fall right off the bone. We also had the Spatchcock (chicken). Good price and good value. For breakfast try the resturant/coffee house also on Bligh street just to the left of the back entrance about 10 meters.
