The rooms have a classic look and feel but I like it .The... More

We stayed here for a city break. Lovely hotel,very polite friendly staff. Breakfast was amazing...everything you could possibly want,even fresh omelets made by a chef in front of you. Central to Budapest so great for walking to the tourist attractions. Would recommend the hotel to anyone as it was very good.

As well as the obvious sights in the guide book our highlights included dinner in a Michelin 1 star restaurant, a superb dinner cruise on the Danube, visited the Xmas market with scrummy marzipan treats, listened to an organ recital at...

Stayed for a 3 night break as part of Easyjet holiday, incredible value and hotel location. Could not fault this hotel, comfortable beds good spacious rooms and the biggest selelection at breakfast I have ever seen, staff excellent. Great central location for all the great places you just have to visit in Budapest. River view rooms worth the extra payment

Very nice hotel with a good, central location. The area is a little more expensive in terms of food/drink, but is very nice and you'll find everything you need. Service is good and staff is friendly. Nice bar and restaurant at the front of the hotel.

We stayed at the Sofitel Chain Bridge on a recent trip to Europe. They looked after us very well with attentive service. We had the benefit of paying for the executive lounge and that was worth it. Nice hotel, well appointed and a great location with views over the Chain Bridge.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
