The Sofitel Chain Bridge is first-class, centrally located, easy to walk from, and across the street from the metro. The Chain Bridge is just a couple hundred feet from the hotel. Our room overlook the Chain Bridge and Danube River, and was directly across from Buda Hill and the castle. Every hotel staff member was courteous, helpful and willing to...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and were pleased with everything. The service was great, the room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent.

The Sofitel is on the Pest side of the Danube, but the Chain Bridge is "right there," so walking across it to Buda is not only doable but an experience itself. The location was great - walk to Parliament or even the Opera House. The rooms are just lovely with all amenities. Any concierge there was extremely helpful - they...

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.
