Sofitel Sydney Wentworth

Recent guest reviews

Great location, excellent service, extremely comfortable beds

Toilet was not clean and even I made a compliance

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

Excellent location & very attentive staff.

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.

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.

It started off great, the staff was real friendly, i just feel i got scammed at the end. When I checked in I asked if local calls were free, the man who checked me in said yes. I then showd the man my sisters cellphone number and how do dial it. he wrote it on a sofitel card (i still have the copy) i then went to my room and called my sister. Cell phones arnt local in the rooms, and the man who wrote my sisters cell phone down who i asked if local calls were free never notified me a cell phone is not local. So at the end of the trip i owed over $100 in phone bills for 25 minutes of talking. witch they knoked down to 80. I feel they shouldnt of charged me a penny as they told me calls are free. Also internet almost 30$ per 24hrs. food 30 for a sandwich through room service. I was only there for 3 nights and i had to spend as much on the phone bill as a night in the resort!

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.
