Hotel, location and staff were excellent. We were upgraded from a lux room to sweet which from bedroom side suffered of some noise from the street. When I one night stepped outside the main entrance I was offered services by a persistant lady. The nearby standing doorman could maybe have interfered?

Had a wonderful time at this beautiful hotel. Great location right on the Danube, close shopping, restaurants and public transportation. My room had a view of the Chain bridge and the national museum. Staff was excellent!

"Highly Recommend."
We stayed over Easter for four nights in a Superior Room, very impressed with how spacious it was, we had breakfast included in our rate which had a great selection of hot and cold food. Location was great, everything within walking distance, everyone very friendly. I will definitely return to the Sofitel Budapest.

We spent two nights here. The hotel is modern, beautiful and very clean. The staff was excellent. The location is in the middle of the sightseeing part of the city with extremely easy access to the tourist city buses.

"Was awesome but it's slipping..."
I've stayed at the Sofitel several times over the past few years and while it is still a good hotel, it's slipping a bit. It's getting sloppier service-wise and the rooms are no longer in as good shape. Frankly it was so crazy hot I had to open the windows (AC doesn't work in winter) and all I got was cigarette smoke filtering in. I actually got sick from my stay there. I think next time I will go somewhere else. Too bad, it was a good place. And honestly, the streetwalkers in front of the hotel are getting more and more annoyingly aggressive...and hotel security doesn't seem to care...

"Fantastic View!"
The Danube river view was spectacular and the hotel staff were fantastic. The service was stellar, and the location is perfect! However, the guest rooms are tired and in bad need of renovation, certainly not 5-star. I've stayed in other Sofitel locations, and these rooms were by far the worst. Desk chair was dirty, crumbs on the desk and the lounge chair was falling apart at the seams.

"Perfect location, five star affordable hotel."
I loved this hotel. It is within walking distance of the chain bridge and other central Budapest locations. Don't be put off by the check in experience. I was slightly skeptical at first because the folks at reception were rather abrupt at check in and there were no bell staff around to help with my bags. I guess they were just busy somewhere else at the time, because everything turned out well in the end. Bell staff helpful with directions for transit. Room service outstanding. Upon checkout, the reception and concierge staff were extremely helpful and caring in contacting my tour operator so they could locate me. Hotel is in great condition. Decent sized room for Europe, and the lobby decor was inviting. I would stay here again.

"A Lovely Experience!"
I stayed here over Thanksgiving holiday and the hotel does its tree lighting on the 27th (at least this year) of November and so I woke up after jet lag to a chorus singing in the central area and holidays decorations everywhere. The location is great and the room large and cozy. My friends loved it too. They also have Nespresso coffee in the rooms - awesome! I also enjoyed the workout center/pool/sauna.

"Nice hotel with great views in Budapest"
Great hotel in a superb location. If you can get a room with a view of the river, the lights at night are gorgeous. Close to several good restaurants. Found some reasonably priced breakfast places near the hotel but they do not open until 10am. Near river cruise boats but need a taxi to get to some of them.

"Great location and staff, needs new mattresses"
The hotel clerk was very friendly and allowed us to check in early. The room we were given was back in a far corner(the room # wasn't even listed outside the elevator. There was a small window and the lighting was poor). The bed was very uncomfortable, sinking in the middle. The hotel is in a fantastic location, staff very friendly.

"Beautiful view and great location"
My favorite part about this hotel was definitely the fabulous view (for rooms looking out towards Buda and the Danube). And just a few steps out the door and you're right in the pedestrian center of Pest. You can either walk along the river and hop into different restaurants, or take a walk along the insider pedestrian shopping streets. Or, in the other direction, you will be at St. Michael's in 5 minutes, or by crossing the bridge, at the foot of Buda hill. All in all, in addition to being a very comfortable hotel, it's a great location.

"Lovely Hotel, Grand Location"
The Sofitel is a lovely hotel in a fantastic location. We had an amazing view of the Chain Bridge and Budapest Castle. The room was immaculate, spacious, well designed and very comfortable. When we checked in, I mentioned, just offhand, that it was our 39th wedding anniversary. When we came back to the room after looking around Budapest for a few hours, there was champagne and two glasses waiting for us. That was so sweet.

"Outstanding Hotel"
We stayed at the Sofitel the night before our Viking river cruise. We were met at the airport and chauffeured to the hotel in a limo. Upon arrival, we found that our room had been upgraded to an outstanding suite with river and city views. The room was luxurious with all amenities you could ask for, and it was only outdone by the fabulous night views of the river, and both Buda and Pest sites. We were close to everything and very pleased that it was only a short walk to board our ship. The hotel service was great, and we would highly recommend this hotel.

We thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. The restaurant was very good. However at our third meal one of our party was charged $25 for a Kettle One Martini. This was just too much, so we did not eat any more meals in the hotel. The WiFi at the hotel was quite good, very useful for deciding what to do the next day.

You can walk to most sites from the hotel. Dinner in the Budapest Paris restaurant is sensational. The deluxe rooms are good, but a bit small, the club lounge is good for early evening. The buffet breakfast is quite good and, even with a full hotel, is well managed with no queues. Gym is a bit small but the pool is quite nice.

Room 315 was small with queen size bed but fabulous views. Room 305 was large with king size bed but 2/3 of the view was of the Intercontinental that sits in front of the Sofitel. The 1/3 of the Chain Bridge was lovely.

"Great Danube night views with the right room"
Very comfortable stay, solidly adequate on the inside of the hotel, but spectacular night time views over the Danube if your room faces it and is high enough. We had a sixth floor view angled up river a little--could've sipped Muscat and watched the river and castle lights all night. For us, it was worth taking a deluxe room. Also, the Expedia reservation is clearly less expensive than through the hotel, so if you want to add a night, add it through Expedia and not through the hotel itself.
