We enjoyed our stay very much. However the room smelled of old cigarettes. I did stay in a hotel in Salzburg where there was a notice that if there was evidence of smoking in the room (even smells) there would be a 200 Euro additional charge for cleaning. I think this is a great idea! Other than that, we really liked our room. The view was GREAT!!! […] ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved our recent stay at Hotel Sofitel! It was in the perfect location to see any site in the city. The staff was incredibly helpful and had a special treat in our room for my husband's birthday & our anniversary. Most of in, during the terrible heat wave, the air conditioning worked very well and the pool was heavenly at the end of the day! We would […] return in a second! Thanks to the staff for a wonderful holiday! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel close to the river and shopping!"
We loved how safe we felt walking around our hotel in the evening. We were able to see the sights right across the street and visit the busy shopping area a block away. The only thing I didn't like was the little windows with no view from our hotel room, but that forced us to get outside and experience the real Budapest!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clse to all must-see sights; EXCELENT SERVICE"
Excelent location; luxury romos with an espectacular view of the Blue Danube river. Great breakfast Buffet and restaurant food. Impressed with the EXCELENT service of this hotel. My lugagge was broken and they did all the tramits with the airline and I got a new one!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fabulous Location, on the Danube. Wonderful View"
This is the second time we stayed at the Sofitel, once many years ago when the property was a Hyatt. Get a River or north-facing room. Pay a modest amount extra for this and you will be rewarded with one of the best City views anywhere, especially at night. Front desk staff are uniformly excellent, and the overall comfort of the place is outstanding, […] all at what I think, for a major city, is a very reasonable price-tag.

"river view exceptional"
I asked for a room with a good view of the Danube and the Chain Bridge. The room they assigned me exceeded all expectations. The view was magnificent and the bay window made it even more expansive. When tired from sightseeing, I could just sit and watch the world go by on the river with the Royal Palace and Chain Bridge as the backdrop. The room was […] clean, spacious and comfortable. The location was convenient to all of the major attractions. The staff were very helpful. There was also an excellent view of the bridge from the terrace bar on the ground floor which made it a great venue for sunset drinks. Overall, it was magnificent!!

"Great Hotel in Budapest"
Fabulous location in Budapest. Great room. Breakfast was very expensive but we found a great local place where breakfast was resonable after a few days.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An amazing hotel!!!"
The hotel is located in the best location possible, right next to the Chain Bridge and across from the Buda Castle. The view from my room was beautiful. The staff was really nice and helpfull. Really good breakfast and internet connection. Overall a very pleaseant stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Real bad attitude by older man who checked us into a room. Others at front desk were very good, bellmen and breakfast staff were friendly and efficient. Great food, shopping and sight seeing right outside the front door. Budapest is spectacular.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"big hotel with great service"
We had a great time in Budapest, partly because of the hotel location and the level of service that staff provided. Our room was large and comfortable and very clean. We plan on returning to Budapest and would consider staying at Sofitel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location for sightseeeing and transportation"
The Sofitel Chain Bridge Hotel, Budapest was absolutely great. We did not have breakfast there as we thought it was a little expensive but being in the location of the Four Seasons and InterContinental Hotels suggests it is in a great location which it was. The room that we had was excellent and the service better than expected although the Sofitel […] group is known for great service. This hotel is in a good location for must see sights and for good transportation including sightseeing around the city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved this hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Spectacular views, perfect location, excellent service. Stayed here twice, and the only complaint I have is that on the 2nd occasion, our room wasn't quite as nice, so the room seemed a bit less cared for. The curtain rod fell off the wall, and we had a lot of issues getting the safe to work properly. However, overall the room, hotel, and staff were […] absolutely amongst the best I've ever experienced. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel as long as your eat out."
Great hotel but the breakfast was absurdly expensive. 27 euros per personGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, but outdated"
This hotel is nice but not what you would expect from a Sofitel. It is outdated and needs a remodel. However, everything was very clean. The fitness room has a nice selection of weights but only one treadmill. This is difficult when multiple people want to use the treadmill in the morning. The location was great because it is right next to the chain […] bridge. I was just expecting a little more. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location, a bit of an "attitude"..."
The quality of the facilities and the maintenance of the premises and room were impeccable. The only issue we had was with the cool, if not arrogant attitude of the front desk, and the Concierge on duty during most of our stay, a woman. The hotel location is fantastic, a block from the Chain Bridge. Our room, 212, has the most amazing view across the […] river to the Castle, funicular and includes the Chain Bridge. There are many nice restaurants close by and St. Stephens is about two blocks away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent hotel next to Chain Bridge."
We booked 6 nights and upgraded to include breakfast and the Executive Suite. It was well worth it. The central location meant we were convenient to all of the sites we wanted to see. The Expedia package included air travel, transport to and from the airport- all of which worked extremely smoothly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay, in amazing location"
Great English speaking staff here, incredibly helpful and nice. The location is 2nd to none... taxis on site, and most everything in Budapest within a 30 minute walk with most of it being on your doorstep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very Central location. The hotel itself was nice, however, the beds and pillows were way too soft! My wife and I had aching backs by the end of our trip! Staff is friendly. Beware of the charge for local city taxes upon checkout.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Amazing view of Chain Bridge"
My husband and I were visiting Budapest as part of our European honeymoon. We arrived in Budapest on Dec. 26 and the hotel was able to check us is at 10am (which was wonderful since we had arrived on an overnight train from Munich). The staff was very friendly and professional. We had the most magnificent view of the Chain Bridge and Castle from our […] room. It was simply stunning! Additionally, Guest Services provided us with a complimentary bottle of champagne for our honeymoon. I can't say enough about the service (from housekeeping to the front desk)! Our rooms were very clean and spacious. Also, you were allowed free limited WiFi (which was great since most hotels charged per minute of use). Espresso machine and tea was available in the rooms. Also, they had curling irons available and converters/adapters. We also had a chance to visit the pool and sauna - it was very relaxing. We didn't partake in the breakfast buffet so I can't comment on that, but it smelled delicious. The hotel is located close to a lot of tourist attractions with the tram/metro close as well as a street filled with shops and of course the Chain Bridge. Thanks, Sofitel for an amazing time in Budapest :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and excellent service."
Hotel is located right in the heart of Budapest. Modern and clean contemporary decor. I don't know why, but they upgraded my room to a river view on the executive floor! Would certainly stay here again! Worthy of 5 Stars.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to shopping and sightseeings"
I am a female student traveler a.k.a. five-star backpacker/well-traveled young girl. Sofitel Chain Bridge was located near town, River Duna, and also other well-known hotels like Four Seasons and Intercontinental. The hotel was with walking distance to shopping area (there is a Rock Shop for Hard Rock fans like me!) and Dock Seven (where you can go […] for sightseeing and dinner on the river cruise). Cab fee from Budapest airport to the hotel was 25 euro. The area where the hotel is located is pretty safe, for a girl to walk alone at night. The city hall is next to four season hotel and the Buda castle is just opposite. As an Expedia Elite member, I received free fruits as well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Softel DOES NOT include breakfast in any rooom price, we had a luxury room without breakfast, they charge the car parking for 30 euros per day and on our check out they charged 4% for city tax...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, great luxury"
The hotel is superb, luxurious and the staff is very helpful and friendly, I am very pleased with the facilities of this hotel, my double room was not very large but very comfortable size, requested a room overlooking the Danube River and the view was wonderful, the only thing I would recommend would be a change of carpet, was always clean but you could […] tell a little stained, highly recommend this Hotel.

"Great location and exceptional service"
The hotel meets the expectations of the Sofitel name. Superb service from the entire staff, especially the concierge. The buffet breakfast is worth the price. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the air systems actually worked well to keep the rooms cool and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Amazing View and Location"
It was an amazing location right across the river from Buda Palace and right next to the Chain Bridge. The location of the hotel is also right in one of the busiest districts with a wonderful nightlife and great restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The city had shut off all streets leading to the hotel. When we finally got to the hotel in a roundabout way, I was told that I had to park on the street and drag my belongings to the hotel. On a bright note, the doorman was more than helpful, spoke good english and helped us by walking two blocks with our stuff after we finally found a spot. When I […] asked the front desk about refunding my parking fee since I had no parking he shrugged and said, It's included. The breakfast buffet was excellent but be careful, it's the equivalent of 27$ per person! I think this hotel is overrated, what a shame, I have stayed at other sofitels and they were excellent value for their money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The best of Hungarian hospitality"
Knowledgeable and friendly staff, great location, great breakfastGenuine Expedia guest review
I cannot say enough good things about Sofitel. You will not stay in a better place that doesn't break the bank. The service is the best that I've had so far (I'm a frequent traveler all around the world). I have never rated a hotel, but I felt the Sofitel deserves it. Room very clean and quiet, spa and pool were incredible. The breakfast is a bit pricey, […] but honestly completely worth it. Great locations, close to bars, restaurants, shops. Please stay at the Sofitel, you will not regret it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
