My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel for our wedding anniversary treat. Being right on the river front, the location was fabulous. We booked a room with a river view, and we were given a room on the 6th floor, so the view was lovely. The bedroom and en-suite were nice and clean, and the bed very comfortable. At 27 euros per person per nite, we had not booked breakfast, but were offered entry to the 'executive club lounge' at 50 euros between us per day - this included a continental breakfast and drinks and snacks all day - so we thought this was a good offer. The views from the executive club lounge were stunning, and it was very peaceful, with an attentive attendant to answer any queries as well as help you with the deliscious drinks, breakfast and snacks. I would thoroughly recommend this option - the hotel is central enough to nip back to it throughout the day and so we only bought evening meals while we were there, using the executive club lounge the rest of the time. One of the attendants was even kind enough to translate and write out a Hungarian recipie for me! We ate in the restaurant a couple of times - the 'french onion soup' and 'Brassoi Pecseyne' were absolutely deliscious, the atmosphere relaxing and friendly and the service very good. The bar staff were very friendly and helpful too, as were all the staff we came into contact with. During our weekend, we even received a free bottle of bubbly to help us celebrate our anniversary - which was very much appreciated. If I had to try and suggest something they could improve on, the only thing I could mention is that a few more english speaking channels on the TV would have been nice (i'm not very interested in eurosport and the news channel), though of course there are films available to purchase, if you want to splash out. But, for me, this was the only very small thing lacking in this fantastic hotel - and we were out exploring Budapest most of the time anyway.
We went on a city tour - not the one with the red brochure that has a booth outside the hotel opposite, but the '5 in 1' package (orange borchure) which sets off from 'Deak Square'. For only slightly more money, this included two 1 hour river cruises (1 at night), and a book full of discount vouchers, several of which we used throughout our stay. We thought it was very good. We went to see an opera and also a concert in the Basillica. Both were fantastic, but if you had to choose just one, I would say the opera is better value for money. We also went to the Szecheyni Baths - an amazing place - but watch out for the acid bath - it sent my lycra costume into rapid deterioration!
