“Perfect destination – perfect hotel”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We have stayed at Sofitel for a long weekend not long ago together with my boyfriend. We have very much appreciated the nice room that we have received because it was facing the river. The view from there is absolutely stunning!!! Watching the sun go down over the beautiful panorama of Budapest is just an outstanding experience. The room itself was very clean, appropriate size and they have the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The staff was ready to help, always with a kind smile. We also used the swimming pool, sauna and massage treatment which was a great area for relaxation.
All in all, I would definitely come back to Sofitel for my next trip to Budapest.

This hotel may be the best location to stay at in Pest! It is very close to the Danube and the pedestrian shopping/dining area. An easy walk to major attractions and transit as well.
The hotel itself was lovely! It was very unique with a beautiful interior and very clean and modern rooms. Honestly, I was a little concerned about noise based on the layout, but I couldn't ever hear the lobby from my room (all room doors are exposed to the lobby and eating areas).
The staff were really kind too. One of the people travelling with us had lost their luggage on their flight and the concierge was extremely helpful with contacting the airline and providing updates. The front desk had a lovely set up and employees that had a lot of knowledge about the area and recommendations.
The breakfast was fine--not the best I've ever had, but it had a great view of either the city or the beautiful lobby, and they had a large selection.
I liked it so much that I'm planning on heading back to Budapest in 2 summers and am planning on the Sofitel once again for this leg of the trip.

We have just come back on the 27th Sept 2012.
We got the airport shuttle(8790 Huf for 2 adults return) and was painless, to the Hotel.
When we arrived the receptionist informed us that we had been given a free up-graded from a standard room to a Junior-Suite. This room did not face the river or chain bridge but the side street,(which we were not bothered as you could see all that as soon as you walked outside or from hotel bar).
The room was more than we expected we had a superking bed, which swallowed you up once you got into it, a flat screen TV, Bose surround sound and music system, just off our room a sitting area that was same size as bedroom, with another flat screen Tv, settee, table and chairs, wirless keyboard, it has a Nespresso coffee machine, also a kettle tea coffee, hot chocolate, a fridge bar bottle opener, iron, ironingboard.
The bathroom was huge with a bath,over shower, sink, toilet and seperate shower.
The room also had aircon, and heat.
We also had breakfast and that is worht its weight in gold, super service every breakfast choice you can imagine hot or cold plus eggs fried or an Omelette of your choice fried while you wait or select other breakfast goodies. Would highly recommed this Hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: If you don't like your room you can up-grade at a charge, but I would say any room is fantastic...

We were pleasantly surprised by the Sofitel. The location could not be better. And we were lucky to get the Danube View room which meant that the views of the Danube, the Buda side and the castle were breathtaking! The main pedestrian walk is just beside the hotel, which means that you don't need to walk for more than 10 minutes to shop, party, dine or sightsee!!

Great hotel, great staff and even greater location. Just go for it. We had pleasant stay. Will stay again if we go back to the amazing city of Budapest.
Location is perfect as you can easily avoid busy touristy streets and get lost yet be close to all the attractions.

Five days on business in Budapest, the hotel had just what I needed. Great rooms, awesome breakfast, perfect location for walks in the evening near the river and the best restaurants. The service friendly and impeccable. Thumbs up!
