What a location, on the Danue looking at the chain bride. Fantastic room, overlooking the Danue River. Great check in service, amazing room, everything you want & need, large bathroom, bathrobes, tea & coffee, Mini Bar, big bar, well appointed room. Big windows, black out curtains. We stayed 2 nights & wished we stayed longer, close to everything. Good restaurant & bar. Outside area great on a sunny day, coffee, snacks drinks. Staff extremely helpful. Convenience store very close by. City center, sights, transport close. Keep an eye out for all to statues, each has a story. Buda pest AMAZING city.

Room Tip: If you have not booked a River view, pay the bit extra well worth it.....

A beautiful hotel with perfect location.. Just a few meters from the river. 200m from the main walking street. Nearby public transportation.
Fantastic breakfast. Nice rooms. Extra charge for a room with a river view.

Travelled over for a long weekend with a group of friends which happened to fall on my birthday. The service from check in until check out could not be faulted. Location of hotel was perfect for exploring both sides of the city. Although we were only on the second floor the view from our room was spectacular and overlooked Chain Bridge and Buda Castle. The Bisson burger in the hotel bar was succulent and tasty and worth every penny. Friendly and helpful staff made our stay thoroughly enjoyable. The surprise birthday champagne brought to my room with a note from client services added that personal touch I didn't think you would see in such a huge chain. Would definitely stay here again.

Hard to complain really. I wouldn't normally pay for this class of hotel but on a group trip we needed to keep everyone happy so we looked for a good rate. The views are outstanding from the river view rooms - if you don't have a river view I would question choosing to stay here. Breakfast is fantastic. Service everywhere is generally excellent. The one complaint I have is the inconsistency of room cleaning. Take away my used tea bags but don't replace the tea? Complimentary water on some days but not others? That's about it really. It's a fantastic location close to all the bars and attractions I wanted to see.

We booked and paid 6 months in advance to get 2 Exec rooms for 4 nights with good views of bridge and river. We though we would pay the extra to ensure we got the best possible. WRONG
We got only one room on Exec floor with great view of bridge and river only if you looked hard right, view straight ahead was directly into rooms of the Intercontinental Hotel, this also gave their guest a view straight into our room. So we had 4 days where we could not open drapes all look at the view without having guests of the other hotel waving to us. IS THIS WORTH EXEC RATES. Our 2nd room wasn't on Exec floor and only had part view of bridge as it faced along the river bank, not towards the river. ONCE AGAIN A WASTE OF MONEY. This room also only had shower over bath, don't consider this Exec class.
To our shock we also had 2 star towels the first night, one had a 2" rip on one side, the other you could see the thin worn patches. To add to this 2 star standard the bottom sheet had a 1/4 hole in it. IS THIS SOFITEL EXEC STANDARD.
Breakfasts for 4 days were also a challenge, never had to stand in queues every day with 8 to 20 people just to get a table. Good selection of everything except no butter, had to ask every morning.
The good points, the Exec Club staff were extremely good

Overall, this was at best a 3 star performance, having stayed in 100's of nice hotels around the world, this is one I will never go back too, makes me think twice about ever using a Sofitel again if this is the standard they allow hotels to operate at.

Room Tip: Take pot luck with view, you don't get it even if you pay extra

Perfect location when visiting Budapest. Great views or the Danube and across the river to the Buda side. The rooms are nice and clean and bathrooms are a decent size. Staff in the restaurant were very friendly. Concierge service was very helpful and made great dining recommendations. Request a room on a higher floor for a great view.

Chain hotels, even those charging high prices, often fail totally to deliver a personal service. The Sofitel in Budapest and its staff were outstanding. In addition, breakfast was great, and its location couldn't be bettered.

Room Tip: Look for a room overlooking the Danube.
