Very nice hotel and great view on the Danube and the Chain bridge. Room was clean as you can expect from this brand. Service is excellent in the Paris-Budapest Restaurant. One tip: we recommend the market buffet on Sunday.

Beatiful hotels, we had 2 rooms, one with a veiw to the brigde - defnitely worth the splurge - we were basically facing a postcard of the bridge and the Buda castle across the Danube. Front desk was difficult - we had arranged in advance to have both rooms on the same floor, but once we arrive this was done... More

On arrival, it looks like a great property and rooms are a nice size with modern bathrooms. Location Pros - Fantastic location on the Danube. Many rooms have beautiful views of the river, the Chain Bridge and the Buda Castle. Con - Can get quite noisy at night. We heard partiers and the loud thump of bass until 4 am... More

This hotel is older, reminds me of a low budget atrium style hotel. They charge about $22 for breakfast. The "Paris Budapest" restaurant, lounge, nightclub, sucks for service and $$$. No "gift shop" for amenities etc. We got sick and wanted some basic cold/flu medications. Option was the pharmacy next door which is closed on weekends. Concierge staff always had... More

The Sofitel Chain Bridge has an excellent location with many attractions within 5-10 minutes walk. We had a luxury room with a view of the Chain Bridge and also across to Buda Castle and also the Fisherman's bastion was visible. At night, the views were particularly impressive with the lights. If you exit the hotel to the right, you can... More

LOCATION: In the heart of the city on the Pest side of the Danube, it's a 5 minute walk across the Chain Bridge to Buda Palace and all the other Buda sights with Matthias Church and the Fishermen's Bastion a few minutes walk away. It's also worth the hike (as opposed to a lazy-bones bus) up Gellert Hill in the... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
