Recent guest reviews
As a regular traveler, I have written many hotel reviews, somehow I am stunned for words because I don't know where to start. We recently returned from a four night stay at The Boscolo Budapest Hotel. It was our 10th anniversary and we were traveling around in Europe (Venice, Cinque Terre, La Spezia) and our last stop was Budapest. When we stopped in front of the Boscolo hotel, I was completely shocked and surprised because we've been to The New York Cafe during our visit to Budapest last year and my husband surprised me by booking us in at the Boscolo Budapest hotel for our special celebration. He certainly scored major brownie points :-) One just cannot get enough of the architecture of this hotel - every detail so precise and beautiful. It doesn't matter how many photos you take - the beauty of this exquisite hotel can only truly be appreciated when you stay at this hotel. From the point of arrival, the car valet staff, doormen staff, reception staff, cleaning staff, the waiters were all amazing. I cannot compliment the service excellence from all the staff - this is truly very rare and I commend the management of Boscolo Budapest Hotel for this. Our room was spacious with two large windows opening up to full views of the front of the hotel and the city. Breakfast is served at the New York Cafe - a full and varied spread. Treat yourself to the indulgent desserts after a long day out. The New York Cafe is open until late. Expensive but worth the indulgence and the ambience. The Boscolo Budapest Hotel is our preferred hotel for service excellence and for its breathtaking architecture. We are looking forward to book our next stay for November 2017. Hopefully, we will be lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite. My Tip: Try to spend more time inside this hotel to completely enjoy the ambience it has to offer. Deserving of * * * * * * (6 stars)
Booked a classic room but were given a handicapped room with wheel chair access shower. When we queried this we were told that the hotel was sold out. We booked several months ago so very disappointed that we were given what was "left over". Lampshades were stained and dusty. No full length mirror in a 5 star hotel!
I have stayed in many hotels over the years and this is honestly in the top 5 hotels I have had the pleasure of staying in. A gorgeous old building, lovingly restored back to its former splendour. We were upgraded to a deluxe room on arrival and this, for a city centre hotel, was huge! Can not think of a single downside with this hotel, especially the price, if this hotel was in Paris or London it would be at least five times the price. When in Budapest in the future I will be staying nowhere else.
I have been to every corner of Europe but I havent seen a hotel like Boscolo in regards to service. The hotel building itself is so impressive that you feel that you are part of Budapest history. The rooms are huge and richly furnished. The amenities are thoughtfully provides. In 6 days that I spent in the hotel, I never once felt a need to call for house keeping or reception. The staff is very polite and helpful, the always make you feel extra special.
Stayed here for three nights in January 2017. The hotel was beautiful, the room was spotless and tastefully decorated. On arrival we were informed we had been upgraded which was a nice touch and definitely added to the weekend away! The reception staff were extremely helpful and polite and were knowledgeable about public transport routes/ times etc. The hotel also boasts a spa and pool. Although we did not get a chance to try the spa the pool was lovely. It's a great central location! I'd thoroughly recommend the Boscolo and I have done to friends and family.
We just returned from three nights at the beautiful Boscolo hotel. Situated within a short walking distance from many attractions, the hotel is the perfect place to stay. The rooms were spacious and well appointed with all the luxuries one needs. Our balcony was large and super romantic. The breakfast is a served in a gorgeous dining room and features a large buffet with delicious assortments. We loved the staff. All Boscolo personnel were friendly and welcoming.
We arrived at the Boscolo Hotel on Wed. 2nd August. On registering we were told that we had been up graded to a junior suite, which was a lovely surprise. The suite was absolutely beautiful with a large walk-in bathroom plus a comfortable seating area and desk space. The staff were polite and attentive. We were booked in for 3 nights and 4 days and had planned to visit a number of the sights. The only downside I would mention was when we decided it would be lovely to eat an evening meal in the hotel (We had booked in for bed and breakfast). After breakfast I walked towards the Cafe area and approached a member of staff to enquire about the dinner menu. I hadn't got midway through my sentence as she swept passed me saying, 'my colleague will help you' (no colleague was in sight) and basically shut me down mid sentence as she walked upstairs. An elderly gentleman behind her raised his eyebrow due to her unprofessional manner. I raised this with the Cafe manager as this had upset me and I did not feel it was appropriate or good customer service. The matter was eventually rectified and the person concerned (as it turned out did not work in the cafe but in events and therefore should have an awareness of customer service) did apologise for the way in which she spoke to me. We would like to add that aside from this incident we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Boscolo and would recommend it.
Thank you to all at Boscolo for a lovely stay. From a warm reception when we arrive from the airport late at night, to excellent service at breakfast to having an old school sing song with some Americans in the Gatsby style cocktail bar and providing us with a phone charger when ours went kaput, the Boscolo staff were absolutely wonderful. As for the hotel itself, it's a beautiful building and each room is unique. I wish we weren't as busy and that we could have spent more time there enjoying the atmosphere. The breakfast was delicious with a vast selection across a variety of styles and continents. Spacious bedroom and bathroom with lots of wardrobe space and mirrors, plug sockets etc. I would definitely recommend the Boscolo for your stay in Budapest and I will definitely be staying there again if I get the chance to visit again!
Stayed here two nights before going on a River Cruise to Amsterdam. Service was wonderful from the minute were walked out of our car. It is a very impressive hotel and staff very courteous. The breakfast that came with our accommodations was wonderful. Everything on buffet presented beautifully and was fresh. Could order items from the menu. We had dinner in the New York Café and found that to be very good too. The rooms were stylish and bed was very comfortable.
We were at Boscolo in July 2017 and or while experience was magical elegance. The building is iconic, the staff outstanding and the service sublime. This one of the best places I've stayed anywhere on the planet!
