Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

We stayed for 3 nights in a club room with lounge access. This was part of a Luxury Escapes deal so was good value. The room itself was clean and well equipped, the bathroom would benefit from updating, especially the shower, but was still quite acceptable. We had great views

I have stayed at several Sofitel properties around the world, and this one was by far below the usual standard. Very disappointing experience. Location is fantastic, but the property is very old and desperately needs a renovation. In the room: uncomfortable beds with a huge

We had a brilliant time at the Sofitel as part of a two-night Luxury Escapes package with executive club access. On arrival our luggage was taken from the car and directions provided to reception - too easy. Check in was friendly, professional and smooth. We arrived early and

This is a nice hotel, but we did find it underwhelming, located at the Paris end of Collins Street. Our room was located on the 49th floor so we certainly had great city view of the bay and city. The room was all closed up and dark on arrival. Room features included

The Classic Room at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins
There is an airport ‘shuttle’ bus that gets you to Southern Cross Station. You can catch a tram on Collins St from there and stop right outside the Sofitel. Personally I grab a cab - it’s about AU$60 from airport to Sofitel, which means you get dropped at the front door.
