We spent two nights at the Sofitel Chain Bridge hotel in mid-November as part of our Viking Eastern Europe cruise package, and then stayed on another two nights (through an Expedia booking). We were traveling with another couple who, like us, have been on many European trips over the years and this was our first experience with a Budapest hotel. We were extremely pleased with every aspect of the Sofitel - the central location with lovely views of the Chain Bridge and Castle Hill, the helpful staff (who were very nice to let us stay on in our Viking-booked room for the additional two nights, even though the Expedia rate was considerably lower), and especially the room, which had an extremely comfortable bed and beautifully appointed bathroom kept meticulously clean by the maid staff. The breakfast buffet was sumptuous as well. If I were to nit-pick, I might make the observation that the lobby seating area was not as elegant as the rest of the hotel, but we didn't spend any time there anyway as we were out and about exploring the charms of Budapest. We would most definitely recommend this hotel! Joan and Jim Ardrey, Greenwich Connecticut
