Amazing Stay”

We have had an amazing stay at Sofitel! The staff were all super friendly and helpful, and went the extra mile to ensure everything went smoothly. We stayed at the Luxury corner room and it is stunning – beautiful view of Darling Harbour and super nice room overall. Did I mention the bubble bath?! We have also enjoyed the benefit brought with Club Millésime – the Afternoon tea and Pre-dinner drinks were amazing on level 35! There are many more highlights – just to touch up on a few more – nice Infinity swimming pool and filling & yummy big breakfast at the Atelier that came with our stay. I will definitely come back in the near future, can’t recommend this place more – hands down one of the very best hotels in Sydney.

Celebratory staycation”

My fiance and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate our recent engagement, as well as our birthdays. Our stay was lovely.The pool that overlooks darling harbour is picturesque and is surprisingly quiet. I wouldn't want to be staying in a room that is pool side on a lower level, because when you're in the pool you can see right into those rooms. We had a corner view room with a bath on a relatively high level so it was nice and private. The free nespresso in the room was a nice touch. My robe had a large hole in it, so I called down and they immediately brought another one with apologies. Overall the room was clean. In comparison, The Langham makes a bigger deal if you're there to celebrate a special occasion (free alcohol, macarons and a personalised message in chocolate), plus the staff were all notified and wished us well. At the Sofitel they didn't seem to care that we were there celebrating our engagement/birthdays - we got small generic cake with well wishes.

Kinda fake between ads vs reality”

I made reservation of this hotel for two rooms to spend my family holiday and my anniversary at Sydney. The service provided by the hotel is acceptable and a guy at concierge called Jame, he’s tall with the baldy hairstyle is such a helpful guy. I give him five stars. What I want to say the most is the hotel room. The room picture showed on agoda is room with Darling Harbour view, but the reality it is not. Even the luxury king room. I ask the receptionist why it is not the same as what they listing? They said the room with Darling Harbour view have only one room per floor since the hotel is facing to Darling Harbour. They said it has to book many months in advance and I couldn’t find any different between each room they are listed on agoda. I’m so disappointed. I used to make reservation of other hotel at Singapore or Siem Reap via agoda, the room view, decoration is exactly the same as they listed on the system except the Sofitel at Sydney. For ex, a hotel at Siem Reap said the room has the pool view, it exactly has the pool the view.

Having a young family with me they provided us an early check in, crib for my new born and later check out. Friendly staff and very knowledgeable on the area and what we could do.

Luxurious rooms with views to die for”

We stayed 5 nights in a room (two doubles) with a Darling Harbour view on the 10th floor and the view was just amazing. Close enough to see the action on the ground but also high enough to appreciate the Sydney skyline at night. Staff were so accommodating during the entire stay - loved Santa's visit and free little plush kangaroos for the little ones on check in. Infinity pool is also amazing -we spent almost every afternoon there with the kids.

Well appointed stylish property with friendly team members and great housekeeping standards”

This is a fabulous new build hotel and generally a great property located within minutes of the light rail, convention centre and Darling Harbour. Whilst I found the design to be quite stunning I was surprised that it felt more suited for Noosa, Port Douglas, Hayman. Coral pieces on the wall above the bed, leather strapping that also had the feel and texture of what would be found at the beach, corridor carpet that looks like the beach sand, sun bleached beach timbers, tropical fish in the lobby and string netting lights in the lobby. Don't get me wrong this is a lovely property I just felt that the design team missed the mark with location. Unfortunately I was also the person chosen to be put into the disabled suite featuring the blue toilet seat and shower bench, a bathroom cabinet located on the other side of the bathroom . I guess someone has to have it. No chrome casting in the room and no in room tablet for new hotel is was a a shame. Paying for in housemovies is outdated.

Excellent stay”

Staying in Sofitel gave us a lot of flexibility to travel around the town. The location is very strategic and we can walk to many places. However, due to the fact that Sydney is quite hilly, walking might be a bit tiring for the kids. To overcome this, I rented a car which is great BUT the parking in Sydney is extremely expensive. A 24 hour parking costs over AUD 80 +. Sofitel is excellent in many ways besides strategic location. The staff, cleanliness, facilities are all top notch. I think there is not much complains besides the breakfast. Every morning is the same food choices. Imagine staying for a week eating the same sausage, bacon or cereal. Please give us some choices. Change the menu and have more kid friendly food or rather kid appealing food.

Excellent, friendly service by all staff members. Stylish and comfortable rooms with superb views of the harbour. Complimentary water and coffee in the room with a large TV and indulgent rain shower. Infinity pool with an outlook of the city and harbour was Insta worthy! Located in a prime position in Darling Harbour with easy walking distance to CBD and transport. The only negative was the terrible pillows.

Sofitel = Perfect! It’s impeccable!”

It’s just a short stay for us. From reception to concierge, every member of Sofitel has shown their professionalism and passion. They were able to attend to ur needs and details. I always like the fragrance they choose. The bed is ultra comfy and the linens are soft and silky. We can walk to China town, CBD and circular quay (within 20-30 mins but it’s a nice walk esp u r in Australia). Just pay attention to the room type. I thought we would have a bath tub for our room but there’s only shower. Thanks Sofitel for giving us a nice stay in Sydney! Merci :)

Stayed 2 nights, booked a corner luxury room with Darling Harbour view and received complimentary upgrade to a junior suite. The hotel is beautiful with many design details and textures in room with lovely large windows to capture the view. Amazing service from staff. The only thing I would say is the cost is a little on the pricey side considering you don’t get much complimentary but worth it if like me you want to splurge a little.

Comfort on Darling Harbour”

The Sofitel came up to all my expectations of a five star hotel. Elegant, efficient with polite friendly staff. The beds were comfortable and toiletries of high quality. All the usual amenities available: a safe, minibar, etc. Two critisisms are that , firstly, there was not enough drawer space for clothes and secondly the lighting system is very complicated. An engineer has to be called to offer assistance with how to control the lights/aircon. There is an infinity pool overlooking the harbour and a gymnasium. Disappointingly, there was no sauna or steam room which one might expect in a hotel of this class. Ideally located for both light rail and subway systems. Adjacent to a plethora of bars, shopping malls, museums.
