Great view from budapest Sofitel. So easy to walk anywhere , to the pier, to the bridge and castle on the other side of the river, to the local shops and restaurant and to parliament .staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very good , given that is 24 euro one ! But room service food is not so good. Too salty. We told them and they didn't not charge it due to the disatisfactory .
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.
Beautiful location next to the Danube River and Chain Bridge. Hotel is exceptionally clean and staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is the most extensive hotel breakfast we have ever experienced ... wonderful food and service. Budapest is so beautiful. Begin our AmaWaterways Danube River cruise today.
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.
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
Budapest Sofitel - Nice to stay for a city trip”
We were a small group staying over new year at Sofitel Budapest. We had a pleasant stay at the hotel and used also the amenities (Bar & Pool). The rooms are really nice, good size, good to sleep and clean. We would again stay here.
A luxurious business hotel in Budapest”
This hotel is luxurious hotel suitable for both business & leisure with casino & restaurant located next door. The shopping area, restaurants, bars, clubs are within walking distance. Hard Rock Cafe Budapest is only 5 walking from this hotel.
Well located luxury hotel”
The location made seeing the main sights of Budapest on foot easy; the hotel itself was clean and quiet with the touches of luxury you would expect from a 5 star hotel.
Our last taste of Europe with view of Danube”
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.
Hotel located at perfect photo place”
The room is small but with a very good view to the river and the chain bridge which you can take nice photo. The room design is normal, the wash room is good with separate shower area with bathtub. The breakfast of the hotel is good.
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.
Nice place to look around Budapest”
It was good. When I go to Budapest next time, I will stay there again.
Visitors to budapest”
Stay was great , I was disappointed in the room when I booked I was under the impression I would have a room with city views, only to be given a room with a sky light. The friends we were traveling with we're given a much better room. For the same price we paid
Pleasant under circumstances”
Very good, upgraded to club level. Budapest was under water at the time but able to get around.
Ideally located ,great views”
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.
Fantastic location, service and room!”
great service! we were dragging our suitcases up the driveway when we were met by staff with a trolley. after a long train trip, we were grateful for the service and the air-conditioned comfort of the hotel. the foyer is grand, has a relaxed atmosphere and very attractive to look around. our room was very comfortable and clean. concierge was quite helpful in booking us tours. there was also an airport transfer by the hotel taxi. we had a great time!
Standard fancy place but not a pleasure”
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.
