Christmas Market break with class!
Brenda Mitchell, Dublin
Booked this hotel for two nights De Luxe Double Room with chain bridge view including breakfast based on previous reviews and I was so happy I did. Beautiful decor and very spacious open lobby with plenty of elevators.Went for the Christmas markets which were a five minute walk from the hotel. Its a fabulous hotel in the perfect location overlooking the Danube. Staff couldn't do enough for us and were so efficient. This was our first time ever to stay in a 5* hotel as it was so affordable. Best breakfast EVER with so much to choose from. Will visit Budapest in the future in warmer weather and the Sofitel Chain Bridge Hotel will be where we will be staying for sure. Great, great break.

S. Kenny, Dublin
This hotel was really beautiful. Rooms were spotless and more than comfortable. The whole stay was amazing. Staff were helpful and courteous. Breakfast was a banquet. No language barrier either as they all had an acceptable understanding of English.....however there was one thing we found disappointing. We had booked a double room and we got 2 single beds. We didn't ask to be changed whereas in hindsight we should have! We didn't want to be a nuisance but a doube bed on holidays would have been lovely!!!

Stayed at Sofitel Hotel for the weekend great location with fabulous views of the Chain Bridge and Castle. The room overlooked the river and was a good sized double. Breakfast on Saturday was very busy and the staff were not very organised so we had quite a wait to be seated. Would definitely go back to this hotel for location and experience.

Service - superb!!!
Euphemia Jamieson, Ellon
When I arrived at check in I was informed there was a mistake in my booking and I was being transferred to another hotel which was a bit disappointing. The front of house manager could not have been more helpful and took us by taxi the very short journey to The Four Seasons Gresham Palace. He left me his card and when I returned for the afternoon he had left a box of sweets in my room as a further expression of apology. I have since spoken to him by telephone and cannot wait for my next trip to Budapest to stay at the Chain Bridge. My stay at Gresham Palace was 5 star. Thank you Alpha Rooms for making these hotels accessable.
The best thing about my stay was...The ambience and superb service.
