Perhaps it was hangover from the Soviet days, but there were no such problems at the super-efficient Prague Hilton. That said, it was a nice, modern, comfortable hotel. Rooms weren’t spacious be American standards, but not bad for Europe. The window drapes did a first-rate job of keeping out light (see our comments on the cruise accommodations).
Beds came with no top sheet and a comforter, which we found was too warm for a hot summer night, even with A/C. This is common in Europe, and we have fix. We removed the comforter from it’s cover, piled the insulation in a corner, used the cover as a sheet, and found real blankets in the closet, giving us a real American-style bed.
For what you get, which is nice enough excepting breakfast, the Budapest Sofitel ain’t cheap.
The hotel has a fine location in downtown Pest on a large square almost on the banks of the Danube across from Castle Hill, near Vaci Ut., the city’s premier shopping street (boutiques and souvenir shops), not too far from the metro (Vorosmarty Ter or Deak Ter, the only station where all three metro lines converge), and only two blocks from Gerebaud.
