Elegant building was once home to a Hungarian nobleman

Budapest's royal past welcomes guests at this historic property. The hotel is in the former residence of a Hungarian nobleman, Count Nandor Zichy. Though the hotel's design and lobby are true to its history, the service, amenities, and room decor are modern. A glass roof provides natural sunlight for guests as they eat the complimentary breakfast buffet. The roof also allows nightime star-gazing for guests as they enjoy cocktails from the lobby bar. 

Highlights

  • Former residence of a Hungarian nobleman
  • Close to public transportation
  • Free buffet breakfast served in glass-roofed restaurant
  • Complimentary high-speed Internet throughout hotel

Rooms

The Hotel Palazzo Zichy houses 80 rooms and suites with full amenities. Patterns and rich fabrics add a classic twist to the modern room décor. Room amenities include soundproof windows, complimentary high-speed Internet, flat-screen television with satellite channels, laptop-sized safes, and bidets. Non-smoking floors are available.

Features

The complimentary hotel fitness room has cardiovascular and strength-training equipment. The wellness area -- open 24 hours per day, seven days a week -- also has a sauna. Guests take advantage of the towels and bottled water that are provided free of charge.

 

Guests can quench their thirst with free coffee, tea, and mineral water in the lobby until 5 p.m. The lobby bar is open from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Fabulous (but keep in mind a couple of things)

The hotel is truly fabulous in every way and I would like to particularly mention the reception staff that goes over and beyond to help in every way possible. However you should keep in mind a couple of things (which do not change my full recommendation of this hotel). Location Even if it is in the city center, the truth is that it is at its edge. This means that you have to walk around half an hour or change two trams (2 & 46) to get to the actual city center (5-15 min depending on traffic and destination). However the hotel is very close to the Liberty Statue, the Cave church and other attractions. Also the neighborhood does not feel as safe as the city center at night; there are a lot of homeless people sleeping on the benches and beggars in every corner (most are harmless but a few are a bit bold). Let me be very clear: I’m not saying that it is not a safe neighborhood, just that it feels slightly less safe that the city center. Amenities- Corridors It is minor, even silly, but I didn’t much care for the toiletries. I think that such a hotel should pay attention to every detail and the toiletries did not live up to the hotel's very high standards. Also, the first two days there was a slight odor in the corridor of our floor (5th) but it went away the next couple of days. All in all it was an excellent stay and I have already recommended this hotel to all my friends.

Get the 3 day pass which allows you access to all public transportation. It will save you both money and (mainly) time.

Very nice hotel in good location

This is a great value hotel. Its clean, staff are friendly and its easy to walk everywhere from here. The breakfast is average but does the job. The gym is small with 1 treadmill and 1 bike but who goes to the gym on a city break anyway! There are good 5 star hotels in Budapest but for half the price this is great value.

Great Hotel

Great location convenient to the Metro. This is a well run hotel dedicated to accommodating their guests. The staff is well trained and attuned to guests needs. While we have read some reviews with negative comments on the breakfast we were there three days and experienced sufficient variety in their breakfast offerings. Actually we were very pleased with their breakfasts. The only word of warning is their basic rooms are nice but very small. We had a junior suite whose size was entirely acceptable. We chose Budapest and the Zichy to get over jet lag and have absolutely no regrets with our choice. You cannot go wrong with the Palazzo Zichy Hotel.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Don Leone restaurant which the Palazzo Zichy Hotel describes in a brochure as "our partner" does not accept credit cards of which you will not be informed by the restaurant until you want to attempt to pay your check. (The waiter's solution was to schlep out to find an ATM.) Don Leone's food is not that great. There at least a dozen restaurants within three blocks on the same street whose food is as good or better than Don Leone's (based on our sample of two other restaurants on that street.)

Simply wonderful experience!

I have just returned from a 5 night stay at this hotel . The experience from beginning to end was superb, staff are professional , rooms, though a little small and public areas are spotlessly clean , breakfast is amazing with an excellent choice of fresh and cooked food which was replenished throughout without hesitance. As a guest you may take water , tea and a range of coffee in the lounge area across from reception all of which are free of charge until 5pm. Rooms are well furnished with plenty of storage and a bathroom with bath and rain shower over, the bed was a little hard for me but my partner said it was most comfortable. There were a number of local restaurants nearby , all providing excellent home cooked food from a wide and varied menu , Don Leone was a particular favourite of mine and their Goulash soup and Orange Garden Salad (Duck) was eaten on a regular basis. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from Central Pest i.e main tourist areas but trams and metros are readily available close by should you prefer. The many sites of Budapest are wonderful and the hotel reception staff will book anything you wish them too, they will also recommend restaurants, thermal baths and book taxis and airport transfers too. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel , it is exceptionally good value in my opinion. The one thing I would have liked in the room was a coat stand or hooks on which to hang damp coats , although wardrobe space is plentiful a simple hook on the wall or back of the door would have been better.

Ask the hotel staff to pre-book restaurants attractions, trips and thermal baths for you, It saves time queuing and avoids disappointment.

Great for couples

Pros: Clean, contemporary style, nicely located, helpful staff (including emails), awesome buffet breakfast, sauna and lounge to relax, free wifi. Cons: Toilet is located behind washroom's door in some suites so enter carefully :) King size bed has actually two twin mattresses.

A great base for visiting Budapest

The hotel is a grand old building that has been transformed into a lovely modern hotel. We we're impressed by the room and enjoyed the friendly bar.
