Beautiful Budapest

Mom and 25 year old daughter traveling from London, to Vienna, to Prague, to Budapest, to Salzburg, and then back to Vienna and London before heading home to US and China. This was our first time in the city and we found it beautiful, easily accessible, and very tourist friendly. We took a taxi to and from the train station to the hotel----we usually use public transportation, but would have found it hard to initially find the hotel since it was tucked away. Once my daughter got her bearings, we found that the hotel was in a great location for walking to shops, restaurants, and cafes, as well as easy accessibility to very good public transportation. Room exceptionally clean and spacious, staff super friendly (they loved hearing where we ate), good wifi, great full European breakfast. Just wish we knew Parliament tours were limited in schedule by native language----staff knew this, but we never heard about it and missed the tour---they should post this for tourists. Would have been nice to have a few more English channels on the TV---nice to keep in touch with world news while traveling. Since we were out in the cold all day, we were often beat by early evening. Would have been nice to have something to watch on TV just to relax. We don't speak Hungarian--as most travelers don't. Good thing we had computers with us. Hotel manager did provide a personal dvd collection and there was a dvd player in the room. Great walk-in rain shower. Just would have like an electrical outlet near a mirror. Great perk--free bottled water AND specialty coffees/hot chocolate in the lobby each day until 5pm. Great when you travel in the winter!!!!! By far and away, our favorite hotel of the whole trip when you look at all factors. We loved you Palazzo Vichy!

Boutique Budapest

The hotel fully met our high expectations. A great conversion of an old palazzo in downtown Pest, with exceptional staff and perfectly located close to trams and metro. Plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood and all within walking distance of the Danube.

Excellent hotel, a little far away

Hotel is wonderful, breakfast in the morning was great! Many options and all included! The staff was great and super helpful. Hotel had a nice small gym and sauna. Room itself was super comfortable and it was a very cute boutique hotel! The downfall is the location is a little far away. Close to the subway station but off the 4 line and a little further away from the main sights. Easy to access but a little further way from the downtown. Overall balance the preferences. The hotel is really nice inside and comfortable. You will have to trade off and plan the extra time. Might be a good option if you are arriving via train as it is off the same subway line as the train, two stops away.

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.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

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.
