We'd go back

The room is clean, quiet and comfortable. The hotel is not on a busy street. The neighbourhood is good. People do sleep on benches all over Budapest, and that happens around the hotel too. There were no problems. The internet works well. The staff were wonderful. The breakfast (included) is excellent: bread, yogurt, fruit salad, cold cuts, bacon and eggs, juice, coffee. Coffee, tea and water are free throughout the day. It is a great location. We could walk anywhere in 40 minutes or less. The Metro is close but we didn't use it. There is a good selection of restaurants nearby. The only drawback about the hotel was that smoking is allowed in the cafe - bar (not the breakfast area). That's how it is all over Budapest. It seems like everyone smokes, and non-smoking sections just don't exist.

Comfortable, friendly and great location too

Good deal for a spotless, modern hotel room in a location that was walking distance / near metro. Also, plenty of restaurants all around both for tourists and locals. We stay on the 5th floor had a partial view of a nearby church and that was great. Breakfast was good and all together a very good. Must say Budapest is a wonderful city to visit...safe, clean and very friendly.

great place just poor location

very nice business traveler type hotel. the breakfast included was also very good and the staff was very welcoming. the biggest complaint is the location of this hotel in regards to the touristy stuff. Its a good 4 - 5 blocks away from downtown and maybe 20 min walk from the true budapest attractions. Didnt look that way on a map, but we know for next time!

First class, all around!

The staff of the Hotel Palazzo Zichy went above and beyond to make sure I had the best possible stay in Budapest. The hotel itself was impeccably clean and comfortable, the breakfast bar well stocked, and the location perfect. They gave out maps for walking tours and were incredibly helpful when it came to advice. I was only there for one night, but it could have been a week, it was so relaxing..

Study the city map and try to walk to a few places before you decide whether it is worth buying the budapest card or any other pass.

Gorgeous Five Star feel

Five star facility and service (with one exception). Beautiful rooms and impeccable service with a friendly smiles Breakfast was perfect in a beautiful sunken dining room, and free bar during the day was a lovely touch that we appreciated upon a return from touring and shopping and walking. Great location. THE EXCEPTION: One thing I recommend is a room as high as possible. Lower rooms are noisy in the morning, rushing water in pipes, and way too much door slamming at 7am. Room doors need to be redesigned to prevent all the banging-slamming noises. Hard to sleep after 7am if you are on holiday and not on business. Maybe that is the reason for Four Stars, not Five. Other than that, it is perfect.

Hotel Palazzo Zichy

Bright friendly staff, quick check-in. Accurate directions to sights and great recommendations for dinning. The staff knew all the important details about navigating in their city. They were accurate and detailed with directions. They were the experts about Budapest and what works best there. The hotel is ONLY ONE BLOCK from Tram Line 4&6. And about 3 blocks from the metro. The buffet breakfast is generous and includes everything from cheeses, meats, dry cereal, eggs, fresh baked breads and sweets to fruit and yougart. There is complimentary coffee, tea, bottle water and snacks in the lobby all day till 5pm. There is complimentary internet service with computers and printers. The staff got involved in our visit and checked that we made out as planned. The hotel was beautifully decorated with a mix of modern design and elegant old architectural details. Luxury at a value price!!

Buy a metro card for the number of days. It is good for the metro, trams, trollies and buses. You can use it to get to and from the airport. With it you never have to worry about purchasing another ticket or having the correct change. To get to the city from the airport take Bus 200E from either terminal and ride into the city to reach the last stop on the blue metro line 3. You can take the metro to city center and change to any metro line from there.

Trendy, award-winning boutique hotel

This former palace has undergone a stylish renovation mixing the original architecture (I took the palace stairs to and from my room daily) with modern design. Some of the design was so modern that I couldn't figure it out. For example, someone from the front desk hand to show me how to turn on the rainwater-like shower (this apparently happened with other guests). Also, there are hard floors in the rooms, so I was briefly awoken one morning by the sound of high heels in the room above mine. Free coffee in a trendy lobby was a nice touch for an afternoon pit stop, and the breakfasts had a plethora of delicious options. The hotel is perfectly located, near the touristy area, but not in the midst of it. My more negative comments are quite mild, and I would definitely stay again if I find myself in Budapest.
