“Comfortable Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

I stop through Budapest for work once in a while and stay at this hotel. Does a great job of providing a restful and comfortable stay. Great breakfast and location. You are right next to the historic chain bridge on the Danube and a 5 minute walk to shopping and dinning. Quiet rooms and room service that is willing to leave you alone when you are trying to rest.

We stayed during the time of the highest level of the Danube and despite the potential problems, the hotel appeared to be well prepared. The location is great for exploring the city and close to the Chain Bridge if you want to wander over the Buda.
The room was comfortable however the housecleaning effort was way below par. On our second day they forgot to replace the towels, bath mats etc. and only one coffee cup for 2. It took nearly an hour after bringing it to the receptions attention that these were provided.
Breakfast (buffet) was excellent with a good variety for all tastes.

We stayed at the Sofitel Budapest in January 2013. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and even sent Prosecco and chocolates to our room as an anniversary surprise. The buffet breakfast was the best I have experienced in a hotel and we found the restaurant to be good quality and great value for money. We were fortunate to be given a room with a view of the Danube and Chain Bridge, definitely worth asking for if you are going to stay in this hotel. All in all a great hotel in a great central location.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor with views over the Danube.

Stayed in this hotel for 5 nights, rooms were very large, bed was very comfortable and lovely big bathroom. Shower was in the bath but not a problem getting in or out. They had a radio which could be heard in the room and bathroom and it had a classical music station which was lovely to listen to. The staff were very friendly,especially the doormen, veery helpful with direections etc. i changed money at the hotel with no problem. I had a view of the Chain Bridge and across to Buda but also onto a lovely park in front of hotel. THe breakfast was also verey plentiful, you could have, fruits, yoghurt, cereals etc. then breads and pastries of all descriptions, eggs, bacon, tomatoes, little sausages, mushrooms etc. they had an omlete station which i tried one morning and the omlete was delicious. Highly recommend this hotel.

A truly pleasant stay at a lovely hotel in a superb downtown location. The views of The Chain Bridge are spectacular especially after sunset. The hotel is plush (though the decor is slightly dated), has extremely pleasant receptionists and concierges and the rooms were very clean throughout. The choice of English channels on TV was surprisingly good too. They promptly arranged for my return minibus trip reservation to the airport and made sure luggage was packed suitably.

Room Tip: Pay a few Euros extra and ask for the Danube river-facing rooms.

We just arrived today and were instantly happy with the vibe. The hotel and bar are very cool, staff attentive, and atmosphere is relaxed and hip. The room can face the Chain bridge and Danube which is very cool. The pricing is a little high, but you get what you pay for. It has a great restaurant called Paris too, so do it have to travel fal. Also a quaint square for dining and shopping is near by.
