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.

The Sofitel was a big contributor to a very enjoyable return to Budapest. The views from the room and the club house are exceptional, especially at night. The team at the front of house were friendly, engaging and very efficient when we asked for help. We would strongly recommend the club dining for the extra fee. Breakfast can get very crowded in the main restaurant and feels a little pressured. Rooms are little tired and could do with some modernisation. No place to put the soap or shampoo is a little basic. As was the absence of one coat hook! Having said that the sound insulation was excellent. Overall though would certainly come back here for our new visit. When hopefully there might have also been a bit of a refit!

We stayed here for 4 nights and on the first night when we went to bed, we noticed our bed was a bit uneven, high in the middle, and with no way to sleep comfortably. We called to the front desk and complained. We asked to be moved to another room and within 30 minutes we were accommodated and we enjoyed the much more comfortable bed. The breakfast was plentiful with much variety and very fresh. Service was efficient, and the place overall was very clean.

As a traveler to any country one needs to get the hotel selection right in first place Few parameters which weighs in are 1. location : should ideally be in heart of city from where night life as well shopping is easy accessible 2. decent rooms and overall service to be on par with the star rating of the hotel Sofitel ticks the first part in abundance and no denying the fact as there is casino right next door and huge marketing shopping behind the mall with the likes of H&M , Zara etc at reasonable prices as I ended up doing shopping for almost a year long list We had visited with our office colleagues in August last and truly rare this as the best hotel for any tourist in Budapest

Our party of 5 couples stayed at Sofitel Hotel for 3 days before boarding a Viking Cruise on The Danube. It was wonderful and you worked with our AAA Travel agent MaryAnn from Boardman, Ohio prior to our arrival and set up a Mini-van tour for us with Fabre Tours. Our tour guide Vince Búr was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable and a great quide. We learned a lot from Vince and he made our tour so enjoyable. We highly recommend this type of tour. The Hotel was wonderful and we loved the beautiful breakfast buffet. Thank you from the 10 Ohio travelers. Budapest was our favorite.

My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Sofitel Budapest Chain Hotel. Biggest pro to this hotel is the location on the bank of the Danube and at the foot of the Chain Bridge on the Pest side. Easy to walk to great restaurants and points of interest. Buffet breakfast was extra and cost about 23 Euros per person which we felt was a little steep but we never eat enough to get our monies worth and yet as we saw, some people ate more than enough and even put food in their backpacks for lunch. The hotel itself is quite nice inside and very clean. No complaints there. I would have to say our room could use an update. The carpet is old and the biggest problem was the lack of electric outlets. We had to move furniture to find them to charge our iPhone and iPad. Minor issues, I realize but annoying. No USB ports anywhere and we understood why but inconvenient. The bathroom was a good size but again as we have experienced before in Europe only half a piece of glass along the shower tub which meant that water inevitably ended up all over the bathroom floor if you so much as moved from beneath the shower head. And finally, the hairdryer is mounted to the wall and was absolute crap. Thank God I brought my own but again, it wouldn’t work in the bathroom outlet (razors only!) so I had to use an outlet behind a chair which meant no mirror. A little frustrating. Unlike North America, European hotels never seem to have electrical outlets in the bathroom. If it is for safety, well I think most people are pretty smart and won’t plunge their hairdryer into water. Doesn’t seem to be an issue in North America. Overall, this hotel is great for the location and despite the price of the breakfast buffet, it was excellent.
