Nice location”

Great location with walking distance to all main attractions

The hotel had what i expected from a 5 star hotel and overall we was very satisfied with our stay in Budapest. One warning to future guests, Dont ask the hotel to call for a taxi because then you will be overcharged (20000 HUF) and they will only call the taxis they get tip (cash in hand)from. Go around the corner from the main entrance and there is usually a few taxis available there, Agree on a fixed price before you go.

Old school but never old fashion ”

Superb location, hotel under refurbishment. Internet is slow but works just fine. The beds are so comfy. The GM "welcome and farewell" many guests in order to Seek direct feedback. For me nothing is as important as a direct interaction with the customer I found that touch incredibly strong and very appreciated. The staff is very helpful and speak for some fluent other language. For example , Laura N. from reception spoke to us in French and fluently ! Well done ! I will be honest, I was unsure to book the SOFITEL at first. At the end we booked again on the 14th and tagged along some friends. Thanks Jean, Laura and SOFITEL.

Location Location”

Superb location adjacent to chain bridge Rooms fine, superb view of Danube & chain bridge Clean, easy check in, staff efficient Buffet breakfast reasonable with plenty of choice Negative points the hotel is a focal point for the cruise ships arriving/departing Budapest. The lobby & breakfast areas are therefore very busy in the mornings & breakfast a little chaotic The hotel in the evenings is relatively quiet & peaceful There is a small swimming pool, gym & sauna’s quite nice to relax in as is the bar outside where you can sit & chill out

Our last taste of Europe with view of Danube”

The check in service was efficient, the staff spoke excellent English and assisted with all requests and room was magnificent. We had a fabulous view of the Danube, the Chain Bridge and Castle.

We had a lovely stay. We walked to the markets, across the Chain Bridge to the funicular which took us up to the Castle, Cathedral and Fisherman's Bastion. We walked to the "pedestrian area" or mall where we could easily change money and shop. And the tram stop was right outside the front door with access to any other area of the city. I'm so pleased we selected this hotel particularly as the discount for early online booking gave us "luxury" that we could afford.

I Enjoyed my stay in this hotel and the country. It has been to date the best European country I have visited and the hotel made the holiday even better. The location of the hotel is perfect right next to the famous Chain bridge. My room had a large window which overlooked the bridge and castle across the river. At night these were beautifully lit up which made for a very romantic setting. The staff were friendly and taxis were readily available outside along with the sightseeing bus tours and river cruise just across the road.

We stayed one night on a short break. Early check in was no trouble, rooms were modern, clean, comfortable, well equipped. The location by the chain bridge on the Pest side was good for shopping, ideal for sightseeing , metro, and river tours.It worked well for us. We ate out so can't judge the hotel restaurant but it looked good.The breakfast suited all tastes - we took the offer on check in which was cheaper. We'd happily go back.

Standard fancy place but not a pleasure”

location, pool, concierge

Bed was super comfortable, swimming pool is nice, location is good, concierge was helpful. But there were other things that lead me to say that the hotel is a poor value for money. Little things: bathroom has no light in the shower and has the tissue box attached to the wall; the milk provided for the instant coffee (no Keurig or Nespresso) was bad; the room was long and narrow and just didn't feel great. Fitness center is passable but no better, though the pool is a plus. On the whole, the Sofitel wants to believe it's a luxury hotel (EUR 27 for breakfast), but feels more like a three- to four-star place.
