I booked The Sofitel through British Airways at a cost of £599 for 2 nights, including flights. This seemed reasonable to me - until on checking in I was told breakfast would be €27. The first day I had a very good breakfast with a colleague at Mlinar near Vodafone's at a cost of €12 for two. The second day I had room service, with a very large pot of coffee and a very selection of pastries and breads at a cost of Ft2800 - about €12 and much better value than the €27 downstairs. Having enjoyed a couple of beers at Ft590 at the very good DOB3 pub, I had a final beer in the Sofitel bar, which cost Ft1549.
The bedroom was well appointed [though mine was on the 5th floor looking across the street and without the great views available on the Danube facing ones]. I was surprised it had twin beds, rather than a double [I wasn't asked] but my bed and the pillows were very comfortable.
The hotel is well situated and I recommend it. It's definitely a lot better than the Marriott I stayed in 4 months ago, but I prefer the quirkiness of Hotel Beletage that I stayed in 2 months ago.
