Great for a short break

Posted 09-Nov-2014
Well positioned near to the river Danube and within walking distance of most of the main attractions. Staff were very helpful and room comfortable although the deep red decor gave the place a boudoirish feel. The Budda bar had a good atmosphere and some unusual cocktails. The lobby bar was less welcoming. Overall a good hotel for our 4 days in Budapest

Swanky hotel with delightful staff

Posted 08-Nov-2014
Pros: The staff
Cons: We only had breakfast at the hotel once. It was very expensive for what it was - cheaper to eat out.
Budapest is wonderful for a short city break. This hotel is on the Pest side of the river, so a bit of (pleasant) walking is required to reach Buda's delights

Great location, great place

Posted 04-Nov-2014
Rooms and ambiance was a bit dark, but hotel staff were very nice and rooms were spacious and included surround sound and electronic toilet seats etc which was great. Buddha bar downstairs was a nice plus. I would stay here again, only thing I didn't like was the cleaning staffs inability to replace towels with fresh ones even after the dirty ones were left on the floor, same goes for the sheets.

Great location.

Hotel has a great location right at the end of Vaci Utca! However, the rooms were smaller than we expected, very dark and filled with electronic gadgetry that didn't work. The look was interesting but the rooms lacked functionality. The bar at the hotel was very nice and the wait staff pleasant.

Just in the central of Pest, sublime building,

Posted 08-Oct-2014
Room was not really clean, they should check the shower glass door, shouldn't leave any stain (I believe they haven't cleaned more than a year, only the 1.80cm part of the glass was clean what about the top?). Loads of stains on the wc's wall as well. Top shelves of the wardrobe was dusty, the ladies should clean the corners. Bed was comfortable, sheets were clean. On the 6th of Oct, they have taken out all the mini bar drinks but left the minibar dirty. Budha Bar cocktails were great. The location was great, close to everywhere. Reception team were all helpful. The restaurant Babel just minutes away was a great experience, thank you to Thomas from the reception. Also Bokk Bistro restaurants were lovely, delicious. There are two of them if you like quiet atmosphere (even when it is full) n a countryside choose the Buda Bokk but, if you are less than 45 then go for Pest part which is next to Corinthia Hotel. Oh don't forget to get some tasty food from the Market Hall back home, for sure take a day & night boat tour. For lunch eat as much as Langos, the best ones were in the park end of Vati Utza. You eat, listen great music on the street n buy some souvenirs. Gerbaud patisserie is another delicious experience which you Will enjoy the atmosphere. The history, architecture n perfect green parks even in autumn. I Will miss you Budapest. Thanks to European countries, they know how to renovate or restorate the historical buildings. Thanks to open air museums.

Modern Hotel in Beautiful Old City

Posted 10-Sep-2014
With the exception of the aggressive mini bar "checkers" who will literally storm your room even if you are half naked and scream "one minute, please!", I really liked this trendy hotel overall. It's modern, great English-speaking staff and very centrally located in Pest. Wouldn't mind if the room keys could fit in my pocket, though or if the gym was a bit bigger.

Excellent location,beautiful hotel

Posted 09-Sep-2014
Amazing hotel and room was incredible they upgraded us when we checked in, staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The hotels location is perfect right in the centre of all the attractions,shops and restaurants we wanted to see. Not too far away from the bars either 😊 we would go back in a heart beat! The hotel spa was lovely after a long day in the city. Also very convenient bus stop out side the hotel for the green hop on bus to see the sights. The only surprise was the city tax charge at the end of our stay which we weren't informed about. Overall though amazing time in Budapest.

Right in the centre of it all, by the river

Posted 05-Sep-2014
Pros: Great location and very comfortable room
Cons: The tropical rain shower in our superior room leaked onto the floor and flooded the bathroom every time we used it
Location: Staying here means your right in the heart of the city with fantastic public transport links. Though we tended to walk to soak up the views.
Had a wonderful stay the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Very luxurious room. The hotel is right by the underground station so it's easy to get to from the airport.

Amazing hotel!

Posted 30-Aug-2014
Buddha-Bar has a very different vibe, very modern and zen like. The location is close to all the major tourist attractions. The food and decor of the restaurant is great and desserts are fabulous.
