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.
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.
Excellent location, older building, great staff”
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.
Amazing, luxurious, superb”
excellent all round. check in was fast and was escorted up to the room. was presented with a complimantary champaign in the room and was invited to their wine tasting activity for free as well! internet was super fast, staff was extremenly helpful and the fact that the hotel is just beside the Chain bridge was simply breathtaking
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.
Right next to the bridge!”
The famous chain bridge is less than 2 min walk from the hotel. The breakfast has a wide spread but other than that it is was just a normal good hotel. Bit pricey.
The suite room was pretty spacious compared to any other suite rooms in the europe. Even though the room seemed lil bit old fashioned, but the bed was comfy and huge. The location itself is nearby the famous chain bridge and a piazza where you can find a lot of restaurants amd shops.
Great hotel, great location, friendly and helpful staff”
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.
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.
It's all in the detail !!”
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.
Location location location ”
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 .
Great for business and pleasure”
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.
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
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”
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”
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.
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.
Very enjoyable, relaxing, superb city.”
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.
Unbelievable views from river view room”
We had on /off bus booked 5 min walk to 1st stop from motel. Had Segway booked 10 min walk from Motel. Other tours motel pickup. The main tourist shopping strip 2 mins walk from motel with dozens of bars and restaurants in immediate area. We went to the underground train stop 2 mins walk from motel.Tram stop over road.
