Fabulous hotel at reasonable price.

Posted 19-Jun-2017
Whats not to rave about? The room,service , incredible breakfast and an amazing bartender whi certainly knows his cocktails ! All in the most beautiful surroundings and located within easy walking distance of the river. The city tour bus stop is right outside for ventures further afield or just around the sights . Loved it all and would hope to return !

This hotel is really central - we walked to most of the attractions we wanted to see, but there is also a sight seeing bus stop right outside the hotel so easy to hop-on-hop-off. Very comfortable room and staff really helpful. Hotel bar also does great cocktails!

Excellent hotel near to transport links

Posted 06-Jun-2017
Pros: The hotel is in a great location, with many restaurants within walking distance. The metro is less than 2 minutes away and is easy to use.
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We found all the staff to be polite and very professional and were happy to help with any questions we had about the local area. They all spoke very good English. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. We used the spa facilities twice during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms were clean and tidy with plenty of space, towels changed twice daily and toiletries replenished daily.

Beautiful hotel.

Posted 08-May-2017
Beautiful hotel, close to most of the attractions. Plenty of restaurants and cafes near by. Very polite and helpful staff. The only downside was the design of the shower/bathtub - the water leaked onto the floor so we ended up using towels in addition to the bath mat.

Hotel Boscolo, Budapest

Posted 04-May-2017
Pros: Very attractive architecturally. Staff friendly.
Cons: A residents only bar or lounge would be appreciated.
Location: A little away from the shopping area and tourist attractions.
Architecturally the Boscolo Hotel is a masterpiece of Baroque design. Originally constructed in 1894 the hotel was restored to its former glory in 2007 and looks splendid. There however the good news stops. The main restaurant which is more of an upmarket cafe is continually crowded with tourists photographing everything and anything that catches the eye.. This makes it seem more like a Disney theme park than a hotel restaurant.There is a separate restaurant although this only specialises in nouvelle cuisine and is expensive. The rooms are well proportioned and comfortable, don't expect any watchable TV it is all continual news programmes.The room servicing is poor - room not cleaned until 5pm- and an extinguished light bulb not changed until two days after asking. Small matters but should be addressed by a so called 5 star hotel. The large and grand lobby is spoiled by tourists who come to gawp and even picnic! The overall feeling is disappointing. The hotel has been wonderfully restored yet has none of the intimacy and privacy that a hotel of this status and price should provide.
