    Location 7.3 /10

    The Sofitel is in a great location on Roosevelt Square in the city centre, just a stone's throw from Deak Ferenc ter metro station, where the 3 metro lines interconnect. The square is also intersected by most of the tram lines, which provide access to Buda and the rest of the districts in the city. If you are arriving by plane, a shuttle passes through Roosevelt Square on its way to the centre, and if you opt for a taxi, the price is set at 5,900 Hungarian Forints (£18).

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The hotel's 350 guest rooms measure more than 30m² and offer pleasant surroundings. The furniture includes armchairs, red eiderdowns, and a large table next to an impressive window, which allows plenty of light into the room and offers an impressive view out over the banks of the Danube. The bathroom is also a good size and includes a wash basin, a bathtub, a hair dryer, a hospitality kit of products from French brand Roger Gallet, and bathrobes. You will also find a television and a stereo boasting the latest modern technology, and Internet access is available on request. It is even possible to customise the telephone with your own phone number if you wish! In this way, your friends and family will be able to call you directly without having to be transferred by reception. The rooms all have air conditioning and the walls are well soundproofed.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The hotel was built in the 1980's so the architecture is unfortunately not the most attractive! However, once you are through the doors, you enter a different world, one dreamt up by French designer Jean-Philippe Nuel. The immense entrance space is full of colourful effects and interesting perspectives, while the lounge is a perfect meeting place, with its red armchairs, dark wood coffee tables, and rugs on the floor. There is also a large bookcase with books from all over the world mostly on the subject of Budapest. Another advantage of the hotel is the lighting and the sculptures. The combination of luxury and designer features is fantastic, and there is no contesting the fact that this is one of the most contemporary establishments in town.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    Alain Losbar, the chef at the Paris Budapest Café restaurant, invites diners to enjoy his fusion cuisine combining Asian, French, and of course, Hungarian influences. The restaurant room is furnished with big red and fuchsia pink velvet bench seats, and the tables are adorned with flowers. The way the tables are set out means there are a few more private spots for a romantic dinner for 2. The restaurant also has a large picture window overlooking the Danube. Guests can either dine à la carte or enjoy what is on offer at the large buffet counter, not to mention the varied selection of wines.

    To know

    Not all of the rooms look out over the Danube, so it is worth specifying that you want a room with a view of the river, which is a true privilege in this city.

      The Best Western Orion is a small, family hotel situated on the Buda coast, near Ersebet bridge. The bedrooms are comfortable but unpretentious. The welcome at the reception is very pleasant.

      The Budapest Carlton is nothing like the Carlton La Croisette in Cannes. The similarity stops with the name. However, the Carlton is not an unpleasant hotel; on the contrary. The welcome is very warm. This is also a good base for visiting places of interest in Buda, as it is on the same side.

It looks like a glass cylinder with several doors leading guests either to the reception or to the restaurants and bars. The decor is a subtle mixture of tradition and modernity. It even has 20th-century Hungarian works of art on display, giving its guests a chance to admire the artistic heritage of the country as they roam the hotel floors. The welcome, the decor, and the available facilities are perfectly adapted to this category of hotel: you will enter a world of refinement and luxury the moment you step inside the lobby.

      This hotel is part of the Park Plaza hotel group, known for developing quite an original concept: a designer was invited to come and design the entire hotel. Donald Sultan from the USA designed the entire hotel: from the entrance to the rooms to the crockery and the paintings, what he has achieved is quite a success. Another particularity of this hotel is that its facade, facing the Parliament, is very modern, but the entrance leads into another, baroque-style building. The contrast between the modern and the baroque sections is truly fascinating for fans of architecture.

      The Hotel Royal, as it is called by the inhabitants of Budapest, boasts a rich history that adds to its prestige. It opened in 1896 for the celebrations surrounding the Millennium Exhibition. At that time, the Hotel Royal was the biggest building on the boulevard and offered all the modern conveniences of the era. It was a place where the musicians and intellectuals of Budapest met. Bartok, the composer, and Joséphine Baker, the dancer, were regular guests of this prestigious hotel and used the impressive dance hall to perform. After several renovations, the establishment has now adopted a more modern style, but an atmosphere reminiscent of the turn of the 20th century can still be felt in certain areas.
