Great hotel

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

Ben M 05/08/2020 TripAdvisor review

Have stayed at this hotel several times which never disappoints. Spacious and well appointed rooms. Executive Lounge excellent. Air conditioning in the room however was not effective & became quite stuffy. Controls did not allow for temperature to be adjusted either. Had the same issue on the last stay but will be back.

All very professional with exceptional service. Only complaint is that the room was very hot and the airconditioner could only be set to a low of 19.5 degrees and we would have liked around 17 degrees

Bonjour payrollkfcconstr2020, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your review following your recent stay with us, it was a pleasure to welcome you for your first stay. The Ambassadors and I look forward to welcoming you back with your family next weekend. Kind Regards, Greg Brady

Raelene Families - 20/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I stayed in the room with my 7 year old son as a treat for school holidays. We were upgraded to a room with a Darling Harbour view which was very much appreciated. A nice touch was leaving my son a toy kangaroo in the room which was perfect because he left his toy monkey at home which he sleeps with every night....he was very happy & now at home, he sleeps with his monkey AND his Sofitel kangaroo!

Benita D. Couples - 19/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Pros: The room was beautiful, the bed really comfy. Location was amazing, and the view from the bathroom spectacular. Cons: Concierge were unaware of the wine and nibbles included in our package, this required two phone calls to rectify. Disappointed in bar and resturants being closed. This was not mentioned in phone calls when I was enquiring about accommodation. Breakfast was very disappointing. The food served was cold, including bacon and eggs. The room has no music/bluetooth/ wifi music player, and no information on how to operate the TV, or any information regarding the hotel at all. Overall we were a little disappointed in our stay. We are aware of restrictions that Covid necessitates, but the issues we found were not, in our opinion covid related. We will stay again, possibly after the pandemic due to the location and the beautiful rooms.

Bonjour Benita D., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour.

Stelios M. Couples - 19/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Staff and service were amazing. Establishment is always incredible. Checkin lines were a challenge, and navigating the lifts meant that walking down 29 floors of stairs was faster. We sadly missed the famous buffet breakfast that we always so look forward to. Overall given the Covid safe restrictions we couldn’t have hoped for anything better.
