The hotel is in an excellent location close to everything. We stayed here for 3 nights and when we arrived we were upgraded to a room with a river view. The staff was extremely helpful and the breakfast was really good as well. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning on visiting budapest.

When arrived at the Sofitel we were excited prebooking our 45th wedding anniversary over the phone. ( Paid in full) We asked for our room showing him the conformation and was insulted by saying. " This is a reservation but no payment was made". It seemed like we were cheating them. I than asked to speak to the Manager and... More

Choosing this hotel in order to see Budapest was a wise choice. Once you go through the door you’ll see this amazing enormous plaza with white marble floors from where you can see all the balconies that give access to the rooms. A must: Look at the fantastic shining Swarovski diamond cascade at the bottom, and the breathtaking maybe first... More

We had a flawless stay in this hotel. There is absolutely nothing to criticize. From the moment we checked in, everything was perfect. We were lucky enough to get the room with a view of the chain bridge, despite of not paying the full rate. Sometimes one gets lucky I guess. Breakfast - gorgeous food, lots of variety and attentive... More

Even though at the time we went some facilities were closed off and the Buda Paris was closed for a private event I still believe I got... More

I arrived very late, around 2am and the check in service was not as good as I expected... Arriving into my room, I have noticed I did not have bottled water. I went to sleep. In the morning, when I took a shower, the water pressure was not good. The shower and general feel of the room was old but... More

In general, the service to support my group and the seminar was good, but I can't say fantastic. I felt that the manager in particular was insincere, making the right noises, being friendly, but not authentic. Some minor problems with arrangements so probably would have rated it 4, if it wasn't for his subtle attitude of "Oh here we go... More

Stayed in Sofitel during a business meeting. Overall nice hotel with magnificent views for chain bridge and Danube. Also 5 minutes walk to Vaci street a main pedestrian shopping street in Budapest. Underground station very close as well. Budapest castle and main attractions other side of hotel. Service and staff just like any other hotel in this category.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The Danube view rooms were spacious and a fantastic view of the Chain Bridge and Castle. The beds were very comfortable. There was a great selection of food available at the buffet breakfast. The staff were friendly and approachable. Overall, a great hotel and I would thoroughly recommend it.
