"Great Hotel, Excellent Service"
The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. All of these people are well trained and displayed the utmost professionalism. The hotel lobby is beautiful and modern. The views of the chain bridge, Danube, and Buda are excellent. Rooms are a bit small and need some modern touches, but clean and comfortable. One of the best locations in the cit […] y!

"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

"away from Sofitel Budapest"
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.

"close to everything a tourist is looking for"
Everything was allright, but: no tooth paste and no toothbrush no bowl brushGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
We loved every minute. The hotel room however is small and service could be better for the price.Genuine Hotels.com 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
"A golden view to remember"
It was spectacular in every way! Everything about it was perfect. The bed incredibly soft and so was the blanket. Spectacular view we will never forget, the pool a great plus. All perfect!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stunning location at city center"
After visiting the city, I can assure you there is no finer hotel for your say- gorgeous location, close to everything you will want to visit in Budapest, with excellent service. Two negatives to point out: the breakfast buffet is over priced, and the air conditioning did not work well in our room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was looking for a charger an adpator for 4 nights, I ask for them 3 times a day and the hotel was not able to provide one. I ask one of the Bellman at what time the restarant open an he told me, I dont know, you can go and ask. My friend call me to the hotel several times and she was told that nobody with my name was register even she spell it propertly. Really […] bad service at the Front desk, very arrogant agents and of course I believe I got the worse room in the hotel with no view!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Budapest is my Paris."
The view from my room was STUNNING!! Looking out at the Danube and the Castle District was delightful. Budapest is a magnificent citiy. Sofitel enables you to enjoy it to the utmost. You can walk to most of the top tourist attractions from here. It is convenient to shopping on Vaci Utca. There are many fine restaurants nearby. The bar is fabulous. It […] is a wonderful place to meet people. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
When we needed help, the concierge was right there, first with good restaurants in our choice of price range, then finding our missing cruise ship!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel with unfriendly front desk staff"
Great location, excellent bed and pillows, superb toilet amenities (hermes), good coffee but I felt unpleasant with my room assignment. Knowing that there are still plenty of vacant similar superior room, the recepion tave me least preferred room with very small window and no view, blind curtained can't be close properly as it keep on opening it self […] afterward, and most of all the smell of the sink innthe toilet is annoying. I've request to have the room change for a normalmsuperior room without success. The hotel better off if they assign guest with most preferred room of it class when available to make a stay pleasant and make the guest come back. Hope this comment get well acceptance by Sofitel Budapest Chain Bridge management. Chiao!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Chicago couple adores the Sofitel in Budapest."
We loved the Sofitel in Budapest. The hotel is beautiful and the staff extemely helpful (especially Ildiko). We arrived early and everyone was very accomodating. They even upgraded our room to a junior suite including a living area and a small kitchen. The pool and sauna were a welcome retreat after a long day of visiting sites. We had been in Prague […] and Berlin prior to arriving in Budapest, and the Sofitel was by far the nicest hotel we stayed in. It didn't hurt that we loved the city of Budapest.

Pros: -Great location (our room had view of Chain Bridge) -Overall clean, but our shower had mold in it -Staff was responsive and friendly -Free wifi!! -Complimentary bottle of water was a nice addition Cons: -We checked in at 4:30pm but our room was not ready and had to wait another 30min.

Location couldn't be better, view is amazing, helpful and friendly staff, design of the lobby is modern and cool, comfortable room size. Great value!Genuine Expedia guest review
A top-floor room overlooking the Danube and Chain Bridge, not to mention the castle shimmering across the water. This is paradise, Budapest style. A room upgrade and access to the executive lounge were welcome bonuses. The majestic atrium provided interior vistas. This hotel upholds the high standards we've found at other Sofitel properties. The extra […] attention to detail and caring staff made us feel special. Highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel in Budapest"
I had a wonderful time staying at the Sofitel Budapest Chain Bridge hotel. The staff was amazing - very helpful in navigating through my first visit to Budapest. The location of the hotel is terrific - very convenient to all the major sights. My room as also great - great view and great accommodations. The only minor issue was there was no bathroom […] electrical plug so no way to use hair tools like flat irons. But, this was minor in the scheme of things. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Perfect walking distance to everything. Very accommodating. 21 Euros taxi from airport to hotel, 30 Euros taxi hotel to airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful view, not 5-star service"
I booked this room because I wanted a river view, and I was not disappointed. It was a full-on, gorgeous view and the hotel is in a great location. The lobby is beautiful, the rooms are nicely decorated, and the internet in the room was free, although there were not enough outlets to plug in a laptop and a cell phone charger at the same time without […] unplugging something else. I had also read about the wonderful beds but found mine to be sagging and not as comfortable as I expected, though the pillows were great. Also, for some reason the shower worked the night I arrived but not the next morning, and when I reported this at checkout, the front desk did not apologize or even say they would look into it until I mentioned it twice. The room service was okay but not a lot of selection, and it took over 45 minutes (and a 2nd phone call) to get it delivered. And both when I arrived at the hotel to check in and departed to check out, there was no one at the front door and I had to wait a few minutes before anyone showed up. So in my view, not a 5-star hotel in terms of service, though certainly very nice in every other respect. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, fantastic view!"
From the city map you cannot tell the PERFECT location of this hotel. The views from our room were incredible day and night: the Chain Bridge, the Danube and the castle on the Buda side. Everything you want to see is in walking distance. Would choose it again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
