In a great location for local bars and only a 15 min walk to the main squares. Room was a little on the small size but perfectly fine for just 2 people.

Wonderful city break

Would recommend Tue, Apr 7, 2015
We had a wonderful week here and it started by being greeted by the bell boys which made us feel special. Service was impeccable and the staff could not do enough for us. The room was lovely and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the Wellness centre - gym in the morning and swim and sauna to finish the day - beautiful! We even treated ourselves to a wonderful massage. Staff always smiling and we even had a present of a beautiful bottle of wine from the management. The icing on the cake was the great breakfast!

Very bad experience

Would not recommend Mon, Dec 29, 2014
Bad neighborhood. Overprice for incidental. Charge 100 euros for a cheap broken lamp cover poorly located easy for your backpack to hit it if you do not pay attention.

Fantastic spot in the middle of Pest

Would recommend Sat, Oct 11, 2014
Great place in Pest where one gets a view of the different areas of the city, close to the center, the landmarks, and great restaurants

Nightlife hint

Walk along the Pest sid of the river around the Parliament and see all the sculptures. Continue to walk and then take a boat along the river.

Fantastic Hotel, I would have no hesitation to recommend it.

Would recommend Wed, Oct 8, 2014
There was three of us in our party and we were all delighted with the hotel. All the staff were so helpful and friendly. They could not do enough for us. Our rooms were spotless and very spacious and airy. The food was gorgeous and was much more than expected. We attended the Hungarian Night in the hotel and it was excellent value for money too. The spa area was a bit small but was good anyway.

Attractions

We changed some of our money in Ireland before we left but we actually got a better rate in Budapest in one of the bureau de changes. I would recommend getting the Hop on Hop off buses to see the sights. They were great value for money and very easy to use. Make sure you visit the Castle area.

Excellent

Would recommend Sun, Jul 20, 2014
We were a party of 21, 16Adults 2 children 3 teenagers. The service was verry good. We used the Bar, Resturant, & pool facillities. 2xpools indoor & out. On the last day we Checked out @12 & were able to use the pool to we left @ 19. Confortable mordern rooms verry clean. The the minibar could have been colder. The Staff were very understanding that we could not speek their language and tryed their utmost to help us. The hotel is well suituited between allies, bars & resturants. Tourist attractions just around the coner. We had alot of fun and our stay was verry resonable£££. Unfortunally we had to return back home after 6 full days. The transport was arranged to and from the airport for us no hassel and also resonable for our group. Excellent stay @ the hotel Zara.

Wonderful Hotel in a great location

Would recommend Sat, Jun 7, 2014
We chose this hotel due to previous great reviews and it really could not be faulted. The main entrance and interior are beautiful. The rooms have everything you could need including free wifi. We were thrilled to be upgraded and the staff could not have been more helpful. Located within easy walking distance of the centre of Budapest, very close to great restaurants and bars but on a quiet street so no disturbances. Also very near a metro station and various supermarkets. Would highly recommend for friends or a romantic getaway.

Dining

Halaszbastya Restaurant is a truly lovely place to enjoy a special meal. The staff are very attentive, the food is delicious and includes amazing vegetarian options. The views are to die for. The prices are very reasonable for what you get, which is a classy dining experience.

Good base for a city break

Would recommend Tue, Sep 17, 2013
A modern, elegant hotel with courteous and helpful staff, speaking excellent English. Location is about 20 minutes' walk from the river front and quite handy for the Metro and bus services. We had dinner once in the restaurant, which was a very pleasant experience - good value and high quality food.

Shopping hint

Visit the Central Market - fascinating display of everyday foods but also an interesting selection of souvenir items.
