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.

Let themselves down

Nice hotel, let down by the fact that the gym (essential when I plan trips) was closed without having let me know at check in or at any time in the booking process. Would use the Intercon or Kempinski next time.

Not great, definately not a 5 star!!!

Great location and great concierge service! However, I would expect that a 5 star would provide complimentary bottles of water every night, not just the first night! Same for tea & coffee - not replenished and only one breakfast tea bag provided! Free wi-fi was one of the amenities advertised, however if a certain number of people are logged in at the same time (which was the case almost always!) you have to pay for it!!! Reception staff not too happy if you bring this up with them either! Cleaning only consists of making the bed and cleaning bathroom, no other tydying up done. Bed was broken in the room so every time you turned from one side to another it would make a lot of noise - so needless to say - didnt sleep great! Would not recommend!

Excellent Romantic Break

Our welcome to the Hotel was warm and very helpful with great advice on local attractions. The Hotel is very comfortable and extremely clean and well presented. Situated at the Chain Bridge we had an excellent view of the Chain Bridge and Royal Palace, which was a picture at night. A big thank you to the staff as we had a very enjoyable stay. I highly recommend this Hotel
