Slightly disappointed as I stayed here 5 years ago. The rooms are a wee bit tired but clean and large but my main complaint was service. When I arrived in the evening with 2 bags nobody offered to help me. At check in I had to remind the receptionist I was on the club floor and then she just replied... More

Had a wonderful two days at the beautiful Sofitel Brisbane, everything was perfect. Beautiful room with an equally beautiful view friendly staff who could not have been more helpful, I can not wait to stay again.

We enjoyed our stay. It was very comfortable without being luxurious. The best thing is the location above central station and a five minute walk to Queen Street Mall. The room had been refurbished but the bathroom was dated and would benefit from a renovation.

Just a great stay. After a brief stop over in Hong Kong, the Sofitel was a heavenly delight. Despite a late check in and a closed bar, the check in clerk very kindly arranged a bit of a night cap for us - welcome respite after an incredibly long few days travelling - and our stay just got better. Excellent... More

PLEASE READ MY WHOLE REVIEW BEFORE DECIDING!! Check in was great! And that's where it almost stopped. I'm a gold Accor member so when we got to the room, we found a cute teddy bear waiting for my daughter and a beautiful little bar cake complimentary (I was so impressed) I ordered room service steak med/rare, with potatoes and broccolini...

Room decor very tired. Rooms quite smelly. Staff and breakfast good. No free water - Evian $9 a bottle (plastic bottle at that!). Accor membership gave neither late checkout or free internet. Disappointing!

We had booked this hotel as a special treat for my birthday, unfortunately I went & broke my ankle. We decided that we could still go even though we were only going to stay at the hotel & not venture out. From the moment we arrived the staff could not be more helpful in helping us get around, into the... More

We didn't book this hotel, it was part of a surprise package. Don't let them talk you into a room upgrade it certainly is not worth it. The room was nice and clean, but a leg came off the bed which we fixed ourselves and notified the hotel. The outdoor pool is nice and the water was warm. On Saturday... More

I stayed for 2 nights for work related purposes. It was located very conveniently just above Central Station, so an easy train ride from the domestic airport. The lobby is clean, modern and classy. I was able to check in early around 11am and was offered an upgrade to a club room as that was all that was available. It... More
