I organized a conference for 180+ people in this hotel. The staff of the hotels are excellent. During the preparation phase before the conference, the response is always fast and reliable. During the week of the conference, I got a lot of support. The best staff member is Tomasz who took care of the coffee breaks and beverages. He was super kind and took initiatives to find me and asked if I needed help. The IT staff, Roland, was also kind and easy to work with. The hotel is under renovation but it did not effect our stay for a week there. The food for lunches and breakfast were very good too.

This is not my first time in this hotel so my experience is not just first impression!:) The staff is very professional and polite the cleaning lady is are making a very good job and the rooms are not that small that you will expect on this price range. The breakfast is excellente in this level they always had different specials almost every day and the managers in the breakfast area are excellente. So i will recommend. Only bad thing for me is that i do not understand that why need to ask the paper cup from the bar instead just take one in the breakfast area.

This is the second time I have stayed here and was only encouraged to do so by their misleading website. On their website it talks about refurbished rooms accompanied by glossy photos of the the new improved decor and facilities. When booking a room you are offered a Privilege Room at an increased price. You automatically assume that you are booking a new refurbished room. When we arrived at the hotel we were handed a key for a second floor room which the lift button declares it to be the Privilege Rooms. On opening the door I was surprised to see that the room was identical to the drab one we stayed in last year. I went back to reception and said their must be a mistake showing them the photographs of newly refurbished rooms. We were told that there weren't actually any refurbished rooms yet and the photos were what they hoped they might be like! When I asked what we were paying extra for in the Privilege Rooms we were told that we got 10% discount on the bar bill and we had enhanced toiletries. I'm not sure what these were supposed to be - despite two of us staying in the room we were never supplied with more than one Shampoo sachet and one Shower Gel for us to share. Also there was one pair of slippers and one robe. I guess we were expected to share these. Also there was never more than two milk cartons each day meaning that you could not have both an evening drink and a morning one. Speaking of breakfast, the hot food on the buffet was always just luke warm and dried up as though it had been sat there since 06.30. To the credit they were always happy to fry a couple of fresh eggs for us. Overall a disappointing experience particularly in the way they market the Privilege Rooms as something they are not.

Perfect location, lovely view of the Buda castle district and extremely polite staff. We loved the great size of our room and the beds were ultra comfortable. We would choose this hotel again and again.

Stayed here for a couple of days on business. Well situated for the train station and in the centre of Buda. Rooms are a good size and bathroom is good. Room was warm and no fiddling with the controls made it any cooler. The restaurant food is good and the bar is good. Hotel decor looks a little tired but it is going through a refurb programme so this may get better

We were welcomed very warmly and with lots of love here at Mercure Budapest Buda. The entire team is very welcoming, respectful and offers you the best services and relationships about your stay, city, transportation, etc. But ... traveler, if you ever pass through Budapest, stop at this hotel, Mercure Budapest Buda, order a hot chocolate (which is the best in Europe) and surely you will return to stay here. Thank you very much for your services Mercure Budapest Buda staff. Kind regards.

The hotel is moderately priced as it is on the Buda side of the city. However there is a transit station right next door which will take you downtown or to Heros Square in a few minutes. Meanwhile the Buda side is quaint, quiet and has much to see and do as well. You are in the castle district and can easily walk to the castle and spend an entire day there. The Turkish baths are on the Buda side and a short tram ride away. You can walk to Fishermen's Bastion as its close by and has extraordinary views. I recommend going at night as the night lights are beautiful and there are no admission costs at night.

Not in the city centre but only 4 stops away from the nearby train station. Part of the hotel is being renovated now and our room, which is yet to be renovated, was not bad. Comfy beds, good-sized. Breakfast buffet was average. Wouldn't mind staying here again.

While the hotel itself is pretty good , the only issue is of its location. This is not in the city centre , it is in fact on the Buda side of the river . It is beyond the castle and fisherman s bastion. There aren’t too many restaurants and pubs nearby . The respite to this is the fact that metro station is close by.. About the hotel itself , it is what you expect from a typical Mercury hotel . Our room had a decent view and their in-house restaurant serves excellent dinner .

First of all i have to mention that the hotel is more that what i exempted to see. Very very nice hotel. Old style room but its fine with me. Very cheap, free parking, free internet and free breakfast. So is the place to stay at Budapest.
