Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 29, 2013

We stayed at this hotel at the start of our vacation in Europe a few months ago. This hotel is one of the best hotels we stayed in during this trip. The hotel itself looks very nice, with a view of the Chain Bridge and the Danube. Our room is spacious and has a very strong WiFi signal, which is very important to us when traveling. Breakfast is also great, with a wide selection of food to choose from, special mention goes to the very delicious warm bread pudding. But the thing that we like most about this hotel is its location. You can walk everywhere. You can head to the direction of a shopping area and a good variety of restaurants and cafes. We had our fill of authentic Hungarian dishes like goulash, chicken paprika, stuffed cabbage etc. if you like to take a leisurely stroll beside the river, you just have to cross the street. A very satisfying stay, indeed!

My friends and I stayed there last weekend. The check in didn't start well, as a mistake had been made with our booking. However the receptionist did all she could to help, and we were offered two suites overlooking the Chain Bridge at no extra cost. Beautiful rooms.
The hotel has a lovely gym and pool, very quiet and clean.
All of the members of staff we dealt with we're very friendly and keen to please. Definitely recommended.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Sofitel at the end of Nov. The hotel is superb in every respect. It is modern spacious and airy.Our room was on the fifth floor and overlooked The Danube and The Chain Bridge. The view was magic especially at night when the illuminations came on.The bed was very large and possibly the most comfortable we have ever slept in.
All the staff were efficent and helpful. The breakfast buffet was excellent and left nothing out.
The swimming pool was excellent and provided a very relaxing swim at the end of our day.
The Hotel is very well located for all the local tourist attractions We experienced no downsides and had a wondeful time.

Room Tip: Make sure that you get a river view

We flew in for a long weekend just before Christmas which is great in Budapest and was delighted with this hotel. It is modern but very well appointed and the rooms were comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Most have fabulous views over the Danube and Chain Bridge and so well situated for the sights of Budapest. A very good breakfast was included and the staff were all really friendly and genuinely pleased to see us.
Thoroughly recommended .

Stayed 4 nights B&B in early November and got a fantastic deal. Location was main attraction as the hotel is right next to the Danube and overlooks the Chain Bridge with the castle and the Fishermans Bastion on the opposite side of the river. Voresmarty Square with its shops and tube station was only 200 metres away and tram/bus stops were all nearby. Rooms and Service were excellent as was the extensive breakfast. There was even a swimming pool, sauna and fitness suite if the weather was unkind. The concierge was especially helpful booking tables in restaurants and offering tickets to other tourist attractions. A memorable stay in a beautiful city.

Room Tip: We were offered an upgrade to a room overlooking the bridge, castle and river for 15 euro a night...

A very nice hotel, with great location next to the Chain Bridge. We walked to the Gellert Bath, the Castle, the Parliament and to Andrassy. The hotel is a two minut walk from the main shopping street Vaci Utca.

We had breakfast included in the rate, and the breakfast was perfect with lot of choices.
The staff were service minded and helpful. The rooms were OK. Nice rooms, but we had difficulties with the AC, it was a bit to hot at night...

Stayed in the Sofitel when away with work and really enjoyed my stay. Staff were so helpful - they literally couldn't do enough for you.
The room was clean, comfortable and had a great view of the river. On my second stay, they even moved me to a higher floor, meaning the view was better and the quality of the room was amazing.
The hotel was a good location for shopping as well, as it was right on the tram line meaning you could stay local or go further away if you wanted. Would recommend this hotel.
