Stayed here for 2 nights as part of an Insight Vacations Tour. Allocated a Classic Room which disappointingly does not have a view of the Danube but some internal view. The allocated room, space wise was a bit tight for triple share, however the amenities, bathrobes, slippers, coffee & tea making facilities, complimentary wifi, toiletries and fittings made for a comfortable stay.
The hotel offered the best breakfast spread of the Tour. Besides the buffet they also offered items from the extensive breakfast menu and which are promptly delivered to your table.
The cheerful Concierge staff helped to orientate us to the city and its attractions, recommended restaurants and made dinner reservations for us. The Concierge, Restaurant and Housekeeping staff were cheerful, attentive and helpful and are a great asset to the hotel.
The hotel is perfectly located at one end of the Chain Bridge and 5 mins walk to Vorosmarty Ter and the pedestrianized shopping and dining area of Vaci utca.
Go for a stroll across the Chain Bridge, the views are stunning especially at night with all the lights.

Room Tip: Classic rooms do not have any view, so it is best to enquire before booking. On the other hand, a fr...

Everything was perfect from checkin to checkout. The hotel is ideally located next to the Chain Bridge which is truly spectacular lit up at night. The breakfasts were amazing both in selection and quality of items. The staff is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable.The restaurant in the hotel is first class.'the rooms are ample in size and very comfortable. This place has it all.

Perfect location, go left go right you can't go wrong. Smack dab centrally located.

Ok so how about the hotel itself, wonderful. I have yet to stay in a Sofitel that isn't four stars or better, this was 5! The accommodations were stylish and comfortable. The view from our room was great. Book it!

Great choice for your stay in Budapest. We had stayed here as part of our Insight Vacations escorted tour. It is at the base of the Chain Bridge and easy walking distance to Parliament, Fisherman's Bastion and the Castle District. The beds/pillows were so comfortable, it made for a great nights sleep. The staff were so friendly and always greeted you as you entered and exited the hotel. Lots of restaurants in the area around the hotel and so convenient to everything. If you have tours booked leaving from the Danube Palace, it is a short 5-7 min walk. Would absolutely stay here again !!!

Room Tip: We had a room on the fifth floor overlooking the Danube. It is worth the upgrade to lie in bed at ni...

Our stay was first part of June. Great location with great views of the chain bridge, capital hill, fishermans baston and of course, the Danube. Walk to all. Our room had views of all of these, as well as the. farris wheel park. At night the view was just amazing. The sunsets were beautiful. Comfortable beds, GREAT service, If you have a choice, pick a view room. Breakfast included is a must, otherwise $$$. Food is very good. Paris Budapest excellent food, better service. .....

An ideal base to sightsee the wonderful city, so much to do. The Hop on Hop off bus tour is a great way to get around, The food is excellent and the service beyond question. Very clean rooms, the view of the Chain Bridge from our room was wonderful by day and night. Pity the Danube is grey and blue, but there are many cruises back and forth so I expect the water is bound to be a bit dirty. Hungary has suffered much but is now looking to the future.

Room Tip: Room 306 is ideal.
