Boutique Hotel Zara exceeded expectations in all regards. Helpful friendly staff offered hints and advice on directions to popular sites. Excellent buffet breakfast. Neat clean rooms and very convenient to use the city busses. Easy walking distance to many local historical attractions and museums. Only one block from the Danube and just across the river from the Buda side. Great hotel.
I can only agree with previous guest reviews the location of the hotel was ideal for walking and transport links.the cleanliness of the hotel and helpfulness of the staff was spot on,only minor fault if you can call it a fault is that there are no tea/coffee facilities in the room.
Our stay was only one night. Rooms were well appointed and a decent size. Furnishings and decor were modern, well-kept and well thought-out, including the "kitchen" facilities which were cleverly hidden behind cupboard doors. Despite being categorized as an apartment hotel, the room we had did not have a sitting/eating area. Rather, the room had more of a typical hotel-room feel. Also, whilst the hotel is located centrally, it was a 15 or so minute walk to the river and perhaps a 20-25 minute walk to the edge of the Pest "tourist" area. Notwithstanding this, I would definitely consider booking there again.
I stayed at Marmara Hotel last weekend. The hotel is in an extremely good location, 2 minutes away from the train station and very close to the main tourist attractions. The room was clean and had a beautiful decor. Breakfast was also excellent. My only criticism would regard the main entrance door. The swing door is incredibly narrow, so beware if you intend to walk through with a large piece of baggage.

We were booked in to the Hotel for 8 days in a superior room, but at check in were informed that they were able to upgrade us to a junior suite. Just the first of many lovely surprises. The joy of living in this beautifully resorted and historic building, the sumptuous breakfast buffet, the magnificence of the dining areas, the style and comfort of the furnishing, all made this holiday a very memorable experience.
So when you first get to this place the street right outside the hotel looks scary. I walked everywhere in Budapest even though there is a metro stop 5 minutes away, and I walked all hours of the day and night and never once had an issue with anyone there. The restaurant had pretty decent food, Breakfast was reasonably priced and had no complaints (other than the little croissants that were just a little too delicious). Its about a 20 minute walk to the pedestrian area and lots of really nice touristy things. There is a little street on the other side that is lined with really good eateries. When I go back to Budapest I will definitely be staying here. One item to note is the taxi I picked up at the airport charged WAY too much to get there, from the airport to the hotel should take 30 minutes and cost around 10000 HUF.
