Reviewed June 17, 2013

it was a nice experience, the people there are nice, and the room facing the river side is really great . especially the location is convenient for anyone who wants to navigate easily in the city center. but nothing really stands out as it is a five star hotel.

We got a weekend stay at this great hotel for a wedding present. It most certainly lived up to our expectations. The lobby was designed as a huge kind of library with lots of lounge areas for relaxing or reading - furthermore it is open all the way up to the top floor which gives an astonishing view. The breakfast buffet was both delicious and healthy with an enourmous variety of food. We sat for an hour just enjoying the surroundings, the food and the whole atmosphere. We were located on the second floor which is open with a perfect view down the huge lounge area. The rooms were an okay standard. Also the location was perfect for sightseeing in Budapest. Close to both cultural sights and shopping. We will definitely go back another time :)

We landed in Budapest amidst unseasonal cold, snow and ice in late March.
Hotel staff were most welcoming, and even though it was very early in the morning, and after long flights and transition times, staff worked hard to accommodate us in our rooms before noon, for which we were most grateful.
The hotel is well located for tourists to make their own way around the city and local attractions.
We found the staff most obliging and willing to provide help and advice during our short stay of three nights.

Room Tip: If availble,rooms with a river view are outstanding.

The Sofitel was outstanding, in a perfect location! We were greeted at the airport by the hotel car service. Our room was amazing with a beautiful view of Castle Hill. Fabulous bedding, luxiously bath and bath products, in room nespresso, and wonderul service! I can't say enough about the quality of service and the quality of our room. Also in the afternoons they served Hungarian style doughnuts in the lobby. The hotel is a stones throw from the Chain Bridge to Castle Hill and two blocks from the Opera House and the Cafe Gerbeaud and the Vaci utca. I didn't need to take traveler photos of the hotel as it is exactly as professionally illustrated only better. This is the place to stay in Budapest!!

The motel faces the river and castle district and our room had a fantastic view of the Chain Bridge, Buda Castle and of course the river. Some elements of the room are a little tired, but don't be put off by that. The staff are great, very friendly and helpful. Their range of english skills vary, but we never had any real problems. We paid extra for access to the executive area on the top floor. We found it good value for food and drinks including breakfast. The staff in this are were very very good. The Motel is "per friendly", and there is even a pet part of the room service menu, however we never saw, heard or smelled any pets, during our stay. The motel is also very convenient for walking to many areas you will want to see.

Room Tip: River view rooms are best
