“Poor services and breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2009

Actually, we did not have any expectation before our stay in this hotel. After all, the room was clean. But extremely tiny and not in good condition (e.g. broken bathroom door). The breakfast was bad. we have to fight for our seat and not enough choices of food. The servers were not very helpful and efficient. Finally, the services from the Front Desk Agents were unacceptable. They were not so helpful and not having very good manner. If the reason was beacause of our nationality, we are really disappointed. This hotel is not recommendable and you can spend the same amount of money in a more worthy place.

We use the Soho as our pit stop hotel for any time we have to stay in Budapest for 2 or 3 nights. The hotel is very clean, the service is great and the internet works as advertised.

There are a few bars that always seemed to be packed with people but being on a side street the hotel is quiet. Gyros and kebabs are available across the street and fine dining around the corner.

It's true, the rooms are tiny. They have tried to load up the amenities without increasing the space so there isn't much space to walk around in. But it's functional. (example: a desk beside the bed and a chair, desk has a tv on it and a table lamp, barely any place to put a laptop computer, chair gets in the way of walking around...)

I've stayed there about 3 times and for a quick overnight it's a lot better than the airport hotel. Might not be the best place to spend a romantic getaway. Unless you get a bigger room.

Small rooms, but very nice. Good service. Good location - 5 minutes from a tam and metro station. Rooms are clean and nice decorated. Very good value for this price. Good breakfast.

Very friendly staff; excellent breakfast. Very close to the train station and that was convenient. Quick subway ride to the main atttractions. Has a very modern decor. The room was a bit small, but for the two of us, it was perfect.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2009

The Soho Boutique Hotel is very very boutique indeed. So much so that I couldn't recommend this hotel to anyone more than 6' tall as everything is on such a very small scale.

The hotel itself is clean, modern and fairly well equipped. The staff were welcoming and knowledgeable with a good grasp of English. The big let down was the size of the rooms. Having booked a double room for single use, I read the reviews on here and tried desperately to upgrade my room to that of a suite. Unfortunately the hotel was fully booked, so a double room I received.

The bed was large and comfy with a two thin but adequate single duvets and two thin but adequate pillows. There was hardly any room to negotiate around the bed and even less in the bathroom. The TV was a large modern flat screen with about fifty different channels. Unfortunately the only English speaking channel was CNN with the rest being Hungarian. Hardly worth switching on! There was free Internet available on request but this sadly wasn't wireless. The mini bar was limited and the prices vastly over inflated.

The bathroom had a fairly good shower but no bath. The room itself was tiny and I could barely fit onto the toilet. Nevertheless, once on the loo, one can brush their teeth and shower at the same time! There were hardly any lotions and potions you would expect of a four star but it was clean.

Breakfast was very limited indeed. An average spread of the continental variety was available with a choice of hams, breads and cheeses. There was some egg concoction that I had never seen before and some boiled sausages. The coffee was from a machine and tasted odd but the juices were ok. The bar was also poorly stocked and very expensive.

Despite all my criticism, I would recommend this hotel for a cheap short stay. If you are after a no frills, clean friendly hotel then go for it. Just don't expect too much. I would only give this hotel three stars, certainly not four. This hotel doesn't compare well to other hotels in Budapest but it is well located.

We stayed in the Soho Grand in their standard double room for 2 nights. This is likely their smallest room (though, I believe there is a single room), which is the room mentioned in a previous review. The room, albeit small, is definitely workable. We found the decor very nice, the bed comfortable, and the location (we had a room in the back) very quiet. Wifi is available in the lobby (it'd be great if there was Wifi available in the room), the free buffet breakfast features the usual assortment of cold cuts, veggies, yogurt/muesli, and hot food (eggs, etc). Though the queue for the food was a bit out of sync (crowded, mostly). Our room featured a bathroom with frosted glass facing the main room, which was fine (since you can't really see the person - it's just a hindrance if you're in the loo in the middle of the night).
The location is convenient to the metro (a short 1 block walk), with all the major attractions a 10 minute ride away. Unfortunately, the metro station itself is a much more 'real' side of Budapest (i.e. you will see homeless people sleeping there at night), and there are lots of folks' hanging out (this was a weekend night) in the square nearby.
