Mercure Budapest Buda Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I did not enjoy my stay here at all. I would highly recommend travellers spend a little extra money and stay elsewhere. The positives - friendly staff, decent buffet breakfast spread, size of the rooms, okay location. The negatives - the rooms; outdated with a bad odour and filthy stains and cigarette burns on the carpet. The plumbing; the water coming from the shower was brown unless you turned it up to a high temperature, resulting in uncomfortably hot showers. The shower was one of those that requires you to stand in the bath. Dirty water (unknown hairs included) would often wash up out of the bath drain and we would just find it in the bottom of the bath when we were about to have a shower 🤢
Recently stayed here & was very disappointed. The rooms are badly in need of updating. The view from my room was of a railway line with a camp of homeless people bedding down there each night. Also the bedroom door had no chain & no peephole which all added to a feeling of insecurity. There is no sound proofing at all leading to being woken up regularly as other travellers arrive back at their rooms I was really surprised at how poor it was & yet had so many good reviews, I wonder if some of the rooms have been updated?
As I mentioned previously for Vienna & Salzburg, this hotel was chosen by our tour Co. so had not choice but in saying that, we enjoyed our two night stay. The subway was close to take to the historic centre and it's very clean & well traveled. Full breakfast & nice rooms!
The hotel is next to a transport hub offering good public transport connections to the rest of the city and Transdanubia region of the country by train. During our stay we had to travel all around Budapest, we managed to get everywhere within the hour, the city centre is about 10 minutes away on the underground. There is a park nearby, but its mostly built up area, mixed residential and commercial. The neighbourhood was ok, even late in the evening, few rough sleepers near the railway/metro station, but they are everywhere in Budapest. The building is modern, the lobby is nice and bright, the corridors were in a sorry state on some floors as they were undergoing refurbishment. During our stay we could not hear any noise from this works. The rooms were in good shape, we had a standard with double bed. The mattress is on the harder side, if you like yours soft a mattress topper is recommended. All other furniture was in good condition, more than enough storage space for the two of us for a week. The TV has more German channels than English, no British at all, but you don`t go overseas to watch TV. Wifi signal was strong and connection speed was good. Cleaning was daily, spotless and amenities replaced as required. The breakfast is hot and cold buffet, the selection is good if you stay only a couple of days, I would imagine it would get boring after that. I felt it a little bit overpriced compared to what can you get if you shop around the city. We did not have lunch or dinner in the hotel restaurant. The staff was polite, friendly, Bence at the reception offered assistance with everything you can think off from sight seeing to car rental when we checked in.
The staff was friendly and helpful. However the condition of the hotel is not very good as it needs repair. The beds and bathroom were clean enough but the carpets were very faded which doesn't give a good first impression. The location is rather secluded but its very easy to get to the city centre on the metro.
We have been one afternoon for a meeting and the night. The hotel is good on the ground floor where there are a bar and a restaurant (we ate well that evening) and the reception, it has good facilities of meeting rooms, but the rooms were very old and a bit noisy if in front of the street.
Let's start with the negatives. The pillows were not the best. They were flat and hard. I woke up several times during the night because of them. The cleaning staff in the morning are quite loud at 8:30, shouting to each other on the corridor and in and out of rooms, and they are slamming the doors. So if you are not an amazing sleeper don't expect a late wake up. I called reception from my room 3 times, 2 times I had to wait a lot, once they didn't answer the phone. Apart from these the staff in general are lovely, the rooms are tidy, food is reasonably priced, delivious and enough, it is a fecent service for the price. I've been in worse 4 star hotels in Budapest.
We have stayed in this hotel from 16.-18.9.. Our stay was pleasant, we got upgraded to SUperior room which was very nice. There is free secured outdoor parking. City is very nice, we had bikes to cycle through the city. Hotel is very busy and was buzzing all day. Hotel offer nice bar with good selection of food.
Very convenient to access from a city centre. Only 4 minutes walk from the metro station. The location is in a quite area and feel safety. Recommend having a relaxing time and nice restaurant around here.
Had a pleasant stay in mercure buda, it’s near metro station & also bus stop is near by. To be precise you have trams at 1 min distance. Guys just 1 suggestion- reception people need to be more helpful to visitors. Pls add Indian cuisine in your break fast if you need more customers from India. We hardly had anything to eat. Good for 1-2 day StaY.
- Walking distance to Fisherman's Bastion
- Free WiFi in rooms and public areas
- Free parking
