My wife and I took a 30th Anniversary Package as part of our AccorHotels membership and boy where we extremely satisfied with the service and facilities!

Good stuff:
1) Fantastic location. It's just right beside the iconic Chain Bridge and is a stone's throw away from Vorosmarty Ter Metro Station and a nearby tram station, making public transport a much preferred and convenient choice to travel within the city centre. If you are visiting during winter, it's a 2 min walk to a fantastic Christmas Market at the metro station itself.
2) Cool breakfast spread.
3) Excellent customer service. We were greeted by the guest relation managers who made us feel right at home with their detailed explanation of the facilities.
4) The bed and pillows were like wow wowowow. 6 layered bed? (or was it more?) Customizable according to your fancy. Room service and housekeeping were excellent, responding diligently to our every request!

Bad stuff: Hmm... Can't think of anything honestly!

I will definitely come back and stay here again without a shadow of a doubt. Thanks Sofitel for this wonderful experience!

After traveling for 10 hours from London because Budapest airport was closed we were upgraded to a Suite. Very nice touch. The Room was quite big , with big lounge and big bathroom. The best of it is the BED!!! it was massive and super comfortable!
The bedrooms decor is a bit dated, it needs a renovation soon, but the lobby and public areas seemed quite contemporary.
Location could not be better, specially if you go in December, as they have a lovely Christmas Market round the corner.

I stayed her for 4 nights in December with my wife. The hotel is situated on the Pest side of the Danube less than 100 metres or so from the Chain Bridge. The location is brilliant, right on the river (almost) and within easy walking distance of most of the famous sights and attractions (Buda Var with the Royal Palace, The Gellert Spa and Andrassy Avenue). At this time of year, the Christmas Market is just 2 minutes walk away in Vorosmarty Square as well. Upon arrival we were upgraded into a river view room free of charge and without any prompting or request. Consequently our room had a great view of the Chain Bridge, the Royal Palace and the Fishermans Bastion which were beautifully lit up at night. The room was as comfortable as expected with all the extras which make your stay that much more pleasant (tea and coffee making facilities, iron and ironing board, mini bar etc). Breakfast was excellent (0600 x 1100 hrs) with a huge variety on offer (cooked breakfast, pancakes, cereals, cold meats, cheeses, range of fruit juices and smoothies). All in all, an excellent hotel in a great, safe, central location and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
