The location is great and so were the bell staff. Unfortunately the rooms are so dated and don’t have the modern facilities you would expect in a 5 star hotel, including plug sockets!! The bar has zero atmosphere and the worst cocktail menu.

Amazing hotel on the bank of the Danube

Pros: The fantastic room, the helpful and friendly staff, and the food at the Paris cafe.
We stayed at the Sofitel on our last night in Budapest after celebrating our wedding as a treat, and it certainly didn't disappoint us! On our arrival we were told that we had been selected as their guests of the day which entitled us to a room upgrade and access to the executive lounge, where we were able to sit and relax with free food and drink while our room was becoming ready. The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly with nothing being too much trouble for them. The room that we stayed in was fantastic it was on the 7th floor looking out towards Buda hill, with all of the most popular landmarks visible. The bed was extremely comfortable, with a pillow menu available just in case the pre-selected pillow wasn't suitable. We couldn't rate our stay at the Sofitel high enough.

Was good but not the best

Well, the hotel is in a prime area. Very nice view from the Launge in the 8th floor. The room was fine but the Air conditioning was not really enough for the family room. Kids had problem sleeping due to air not getting to them.

Sijainti loistava. Huone vähän nuhruinen. Muuten siistihkö. Aamiainen hyvä. Henkilökunta kohtelias. Muistakaa varata aamiainen samalla kuin huonekin. Se ei ole halvimmsta päästä.

Positiv: - Wir konnten vorher einchecken und ins Zimmer - Zimmer sind großräumig und sauber - Frühstücksbuffet vielseitig und reichlich Negativ: - Zu wenig Plätze im Frühstücksbereich, da ist Handlungsbedarf. Zu große Warteschlange
