    Best view in Budapest”

    We got the panoramic view room and it was so with it. We had a unblocked view of chain bridge and Buda, probably the best view around the area. Facilities were excellent, service 5 stars. Totally and fully recommend.

    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.

    Staff, Location, Breakfast

    This is an older property it seems. The mattress was a bit soft for my taste, there was also a problem with the shower drain and it took some effort to connect to WiFi. The staff made up for this by helping out swiftly and with a smile. The breakfast is great.

    Great position, friendly staff, modern high standard rooms,

    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.

    Booked a delux river view room. Arrived in the evening on entry we were blown away with the view. We were facing the floodlit Royal Palace with the Chain bridge to the side. Simply stunning. Our bay windowed room was very spacious spotless and the king size bed was very comfy. Highly recommended.

    location, beds, bell boys

    Although we were informed there was complimentary coffee/tea, this was not re-filled for 3 days.I asked reception and returning 5 hours later it was still not re-filled. Used cups were not cleaned in two out of our 3 rooms. Instead of leaving a shampoo, etc,4 body lotions were left and no shampoo/conditioner in two out of the 3 rooms we booked. There was a gentleman during check in who didnt even greet me. When I returned one of the keys, as 2 of our party were arriving later, he was rude in my estimation, not saying a word. When these 2 people arrived the same gentleman just put the key on the desk, didnt tell them were the lift was and no welcome greeting either. Is this 5 star treatment, I dont think so.

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 staff were very flexible around times I needed to work from my room & great wifi connection & desk area made working easier. Much better maintained than other hotels in the vicinity for the room cost. Only slight issue was with quality of food - was a bit disappointed with room service.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The bed, pillows and spa

    Very good stay. Lovely room - just a pity no view of the Danube. Attentive staff - one day, I was unwell and needed a chemist - I was shown where to go - later that day, the same porter came over and asked how I was feeling - and gave me some complimentary Vitamin 'c' from the spa !!! So sweet !!! Only one downside - our last day ans our flight was not until 6.30. The first check in guy said he thought we could stay in our room until late afternoon, but on checking with his supervisor, she was very abrupt and said we couldn't sat in our room as they were fully booked. That's fine, but she was dismissive and did not offer any other suggestion or even a place where we might change/freshen up later in the day. oh well - the rest of the stay was good. One last thing - the breakfast was VERY expensive. Much better to go out of the hotel to the local square and have breakfast in a cafe.
