Perfect for our first time there in Hungary. Client services were super. The hotel housekeeping was ok, but not excellent. Rm 305 large with King bed but view of Chain Bridge was blocked by the hotel in front. Rm 317 was small with queen bed but view was marvelous.

"A pleasant stay, great views if in right room"
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. Room service was not as perfect as it could be, not refilling amenities or providing requested towels when requested.Service in Paris restaurant bar was fabulous.

"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.

"great all around"
I always enjoy my stay with at the hotel; love the beds, the free Internet and all amenities the hotel has to offer. I always have only one challenge with them, and that is that they do not have enough plugs for devices. When I go around the room I maybe find one, badly located plug, while other hotels have them right on the desk or built into the table lights by the beds. It’s always an inconvenience for all travelers, not to mention the tech-minded ones. That is my only beef with them, everything else is great. Looking forward staying there aging next year.

"Nothing but the best!"
The hotel was wonderful. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were nice, etc. I have no complaints. The staff was great. We needed a bath robe--this was delivered within 5 minutes of my call to the desk. My family used the sauna and pool--they loved it. The location is also convenient. It is a 10 minute stroll to the Parliament or to Vaci utca. This is what I expected from a five star hotel. The only negative thing I can say is that this is a 1980's hotel so the architecture is of that era. Otherwise, it was perfect.

"Not given what we booked on Expedia."
If you book with Expedia, they will give you a room with basically no view, even though you pay for a "city view". We were given a room on the 6th floor that had a very small window that I could not even see out of. After arriving at night from an international flight, we weren't too pleased. The bellman went down right away to complain for us and they gave us a nicer room with river view, but of course at a higher price than I could have booked it for on Expedia. The original staff behind the desk were not helpful, but upon checking out the manager tried to reduce the bill slightly. The room was very hot and since they only use duvets and not sheets, there was little way to get cool at night. A/C did not on. Opening the window was a bit noisy. The lighting in the room was horrible and in the bath, worse. No plugs for hair dryers near mirrors, so ladies if you need to use a more powerful blow dryer than the tiny ones that they provide (where you have to hold the on button on constantly) beware! The only good thing this hotel has is location. But for the price, there are other, better hotels there with better facilities and prices. The breakfast here was super expensive per person, so we didn't even bother.

"Good Hotel - Great view of Chain Bridge"
My wife and I stayed at this hotel after a Viking River Cruise from Passau to Budapest. The hotel is just across from the Viking docks. The hotel is very good, nice rooms with very good internet connection. The restaurant in the hotel is also very good. We chose a room ( a little be more expensive) with a view of the Chain Bridge and the river. Definitely worth the extra money.

Able to walk to a lot of sites once you oriented self. such as St. Stephens, Opera House, Parliament, near river cruise ships for hourly tours on Danube river. I have recommended and will continue to recommend this Sofitel hotel to family and friends who will be going to Budapest. Stay here if you can.

"Sofitel Great Location"
The hotel was perfectly located; close to the famous Chain Bridge, Old Town, Castle, Parliament building and walking distance to the Rudas and Gellert spas. The "classic" room was a bit tired; big bleached stain in the rug, and the one side of the queen size bed was so overly slept on that it sunk on that side. My husband tolerated the shoddy mattress but next time I would insist on having the room changed.

We loved the hotel. The location was perfect and our view was amazing. The hotel upgraded us to a suite which was incredible. The only negative was the concierge desk kept suggesting touristy things when we asked for different things to do. The never told us about the baths which Budapest is known for worldwide, the didn't mention the tiny market which was interesting. We found out about those from other tourists. Other than that the hotel was wonderful.

"Excellent views"
My overall experience at the hotel was nice. We had a view of the Danube River and the castle. The lights on the buildings were so beautiful that I left the curtains opened at night. The restaurant was great and so was the bar area. The one mistake I made was not including the breakfast buffet in our reservation. I highly recommend that you do that. The selection of foods was great. My only negative comment is the room service. Our room was never really cleaned. We had to request clean face cloths and soap every other day. I also do not like feather pillows (they are too hot) or soft mattresses filled with down. The carpet was worn and you can see were they spot cleaned it. Otherwise, everything else was fine.

"A hotel fall short of expectation"
It is a luxury hotel but fall short of expectation. Hotel staffs are friendly, but the room i stayed seem like a 2-3 star hotel room :( No decoration and the room is out dated, looedk like those at least 10-15 years behind. It is Sofitel, and i expected more. I stayed in my Sofitel before, this is the worse one. The hotel lobby was impressive but once you enter into the room, i felt like i was deceived by the pretty picture it was advertise on the website :( That's a huge discount for hotel claimed "Luxury". The bed was comfortable thought. But I wouldn't pay 27 Euro for buffet breakfast if I knew that's the kind of food I was getting.

"Excellent Location"
Excellent. I had one problem with the mattress I slept on. It was soft and sagging in the middle. The guest service dept. and house keeping made a commendable attempt to address the issue by placing a plywood board between the mattress and the box spring. It probably did not make any difference, as the mattress itself was soft and sagging. However, it was psychologically placating. Credit to the house keeping. The restaurant ' Paris Budapest ' has an excellent service and food. All other services are very good.

I was extremely, extremely pleased with the rate I got for this fantastic 5 star hotel with stunning views of the Danube, Chain Bridge and sights across the river in the Buda Hills (i.e. Fisherman's Bastion, St. Mathias Church, Houses of Parliament, etc.). The service from check-in to check-out was superlative and the food was amazing (truly the BEST croissants in Budapest). Every service person I dealt with was fluent in English, courteous, knowledgeable and totally accomodating. My 3 days in Budapest at the Sofitel was the highlight of my vacation.

"Great Location to take in the sights of Budapest"
We had an issue with our reservation. We had reconfirmed directly with the hotel's reservation desk several days before our arrival. When we checked in, it appeared we were holding two identical reservations, one made and prepaid through Hotels.com, the other guaranteed to our American Express card. Obviously there was a mix up and we expected this would have been brought to our attention when we reconfirmed our reservations. The hotel accepted no responsibility and was insistent on charging us a one night cancellation penalty. It took an hour and several calls to American Express Platinum Travel Services to cancel out the second reservation without charge to our credit card. The hotel's front desk was neither empowered nor particularly helpful in resolving this situation. This is the reason for rating them not satisfied on the quality of service. Having said that, the service on the Concierge Level was excellent and the remainder of our stay very enjoyable.

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.
