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.

  • 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.

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.

There are a few restaurants/bars within a few yards of the hotel that were good however the area is very quiet. Tried the basement bar opposite the hotel but wouldn't recommend it.

Quiet and comfortable

This hotel is situated in a quiet narrow side street the front of the hotel does not look impossing but as soon as you walk through the entrance you know you are in a speicial hotel the staff are great nothing is to much trouble the inside of the hotel is modern but many of the older features have been retained. the rooms are large and comfortable and quiet. many have mentioned the breakfast but I found it standard for a 4 star hotel. There are many restaurents and cafes near the hotel for an evening meal as the hotel only provides breakfast but these offer only standard tourist fare for better meals go into the centre of Budapest , we tried Robinsons which was very good. It is only a short work to the nearest Metro station which will take you to most of the populas sites of Budapest. The city has some amazing buildings and sites to see but a lot of the older buildings are looking a bit shabby.For the type of sites you will see I would comper it to Prauge but Prauge for me just as the edge .

Fabulous Neighborhood Hotel

Our experience was first rate! The staff was helpful in every way, their knowledge of the City, assisting with local transportation, arranging tours. The breakfast is first class with many fresh foods and a great variety. Wonderful coffee. We had no prior experience with this hotel, but we would highly recommend it.We have stayed in other four star hotels, which would give the Zichy a five star Plus!
