              Great hotel, excellent location next to chain bridge. Staff were great, more than willing to help with any queries we had. Lovely area with lots of nice restaurants and bars nearby. Will definitely stay next time I go back.

              The staff were particularly friendly and very helpful.The room was very clean and comfortable. We upgraded to a room with a view of the Danube and we were delighted we did as the views were stunning.

              We have apreciated to be upgraded thank to the flying blue gold card. The service was irreproachable (concierge, frontdesk, portiers...). Great location, very central.

              9.2

              Really kind staff and the views are amazing

              The room service menu was too short.

            • Couple
              10.0

              The location was superb, the hotel staff very friendly and professional at the same time, the best view and the food was great. We had an unforgetable dinner outside (at the patio) with wonderful lounge music, incredible view and great atmosphere.

            • Couple
              4.6

              Location is good; parking is exactly under the hotel.

              Other times we found nothing bad on Sofitel but not this time. I found a (long) curly hair on my nightstand. One of the (very old) towels in the bathroom had a brown stain. They have terrible staff on roomservice. An explanation could be that roomservice personel do not understand english, another explanation would be that they do not want to do their job. In the evening we ordered something to eat. Food came late, uncooked, incomplete; we had to wait long time to send the rest of ordered food. It is bad food anyway, uncooked, bad taste. In the morning we ordered continental breakfast with expresso coffe. They sent normal coffe, breakfast for one person even that we ordered for two. We asked again for expresso coffe, again they bring something else. At this moment we gave up and considered that management of Sofitel Budapest should be changed. Anyway we will never go back to Sofitel again even that this was a hotel that we used to love and we stayed there anytime we had the opportunity. At this moment Sofitel have prices of a 5 star hotel and services like a hostel.

            • Couple
              6.6

              The location is easily it's best asset. The bed was also very comfortable and the too very clean.

              Upon check in we were told we had already checked in. I didn't find the reception staff particularly warm or friendly especially as they should have had in their notes I was there for my fathers funeral, a warmer welcome would have been nice. The mini bar and laundry prices were absolutely outrageous! More than 6 euro for a red bull and almost 50 euro to wash 2 shirts and 1 pair of jeans was unacceptable. In check out they overcharged by a huge amount (50%) and when I pointed this out after being forced to go through line by line of the bill it was obviously of annoyance to them. I wouldn't stay there again.

              The views were excellent, staff very helpful and friendly. The room was spacious, with the bed being wondeful

            • Family with children
              9.6

              Staff were very helpful, especially concierges. Accommodations were comfortable. View of Buda is spectacular. Decor is better than most chain hotels. Fitness center, swimming pool are excellent.

              Restaurant cafe (coffee, pastries) and food was not as good as nearby restaurants. Toiletries are heavily scented - prefer unscented. Wireless internet didn't work well. Would appreciate later open hours for pool and fitness center (till 10 pm).

              The location

              The room did not have a proper window - mroe like an attic. The service in the lounge bar was extremely slow even though it was empty.

            • Couple
              7.0

              Compared to other Sofitel's stayed at this hotel was not up to the Sofitel standards. The room quality was poor and the staff was not helpful.

              8.8

              Room overlooking the Danube and the chain bridge simply marvellous

            • Couple
              7.8

              All aspects in the hotel was as expected from a similar class hotel. The only downside was the wi-fi acess on the far wing rooms are very poor. The management was apologetic.

            • Couple
              8.8

              Hotel was excellent,great location rihjt by the Chain Bridge and fdirectly opposite Budapest Castle. You had the feeling that you were entering a premium quality hotel everytime you walked into the lobby. The rooms too were spacious and very comfortable and the 'Paris Budapest' bar was very comfortable and welcoming if a little pricey.

              The only issue was the bed. No good if you're allergic to feathers! I would question whether most people would want a duck feather duvet underneath them as well as on top of them.
