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.

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.

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.

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.

Pleasant

Overall the hotel was great and I would stay again. The staff was very welcoming, informative, helpful and accommodating. I had a problem and the hotel staff worked effectively and efficiently to find a solution which meant a lot. The Hotel is well kept and the location seemed pretty safe. It is a 5min walk from the tram and Hop on/off bus which is convenient or the hotel will call you a taxi which typically takes 5mins to arrive. A 20 minute walk takes you to the city center and most of the touristy locations. The hotel does not have clocks or washcloths so plan accordingly. The breakfast buffet included a variety of breads, cheeses, cold meats and drinks. The hot breakfast includes eggs in 3 styles, veggies and bacon. Their are also complimentary drinks throughout the day. The Hotel is definitely worth the cost and worth a recommendation.

Nearly perfect except for the bathroom door

Everything from the service to the breakfast was above expectation, however I am an American travelling with a work colleague and the fact that the bathroom door was the type that swing open without shutting completely was a little different than what I am accustomed to. For this reason, I give 3/5 for room comfort. If you're traveling with a spouse or your family than this is likely less of a concern. Otherwise, this was a great place to stay.

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!
