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.

Service to improve but overall a very good hotel. The breakfast service was a little bit below a 5 star hotel standards

Excellent ornate hotel

Posted 18-Apr-2017
Pros: New York Cafe area with its amazing decoration. The head waiter was very thoughtful and accommodating, The Foyer area was excellent and good Spa area.
Cons: Spa pool (strip) is not a swimming pool and local area, including nearest metro station a little downbeat.
Location: Main road that it is on is not the best area in Budapest - more for locals than tourists. But easy to get Bus/metro/tram to anywhere.
This was a great hotel for our 4 night break in Budapest. Staff were really helpful and the integral 'New York Cafe', where you have breakfast is stunning. The foyer area is also a highlight and another photo op.

Nice hotel

Posted 15-Apr-2017
I thought this hotel was exactly as advertised - however it is the party side of town. Not everything went to plan with a smell from the toilet causing a problem one evening - but this was resolved and we were happy with the room cleaning over the course of our week stay - thank you to Boscolo Hotel - high quality at an affordable price - the breakfast is worth experiencing at least once!

Beautiful, central first class hotel in the city

Posted 12-Apr-2017
Fantastic from start to finish, we couldn't fault it in any way. Amazing breakfast highly recommended in beautiful opulent sorroundings with orchestra playing live. One of the best we have stayed in. The spa is beautiful and great for relaxing. Staff are really friendly, curtious and obliging. Beds are very comfy.

Beautiful hotel in a good location

Posted 04-Apr-2017
The hotel is beautiful. The room was very comfortable and clean. The spa facilities are lovely. The staff were kind, attentive and helpful, giving recommendations and sorting problems quickly. The hotel is near a metro but also in comfortable walking distance to city centre attractions.
