We stayed at the Sofitel for one night prior to the start of a Uniworld river cruise. Even though we arrived in the middle of the afternoon, the front desk staff informed us that our room was not ready. To our surprise a manager came over and informed us because of our being inconvenienced, she was authorizing an upgrade to a bigger room. After catching our breath in the beautiful bar area for an hour or so, we were told our room was ready. We discovered that we were now in a suite on an upper floor with most incredible view of the Danube river and seemingly looking right down on the chain bridge. The 'stated' room rate on the door indicated that this was a 600 euro a night room. (thinking most folks don't actually pay this rate, but still, it was quite a bit more than the standard room we had pre-booked). We will never know if this is the standard practice for the Sofitel staff, but for sure we are quite happy with how they treated us. Lastly, we should comment on the breakfast provided by the Sofitel. Fellow Trip Advisors have indicated that they thought it may have been above average in terms of cost, but we felt is was one of the most expansive and eye-opening spreads we have ever seen anywhere-let alone at a hotel with a captive audience. If you are the 'hungry-type' at breakfast, then you will be in heaven at the Sofitel. We counted literally dozens and dozens of different items. In closing, first class staff, committed to customer satisfaction and first class breakfast offerings-everything a tired traveler could ask for.
