Mercure Budapest Korona Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel was booked through a Gate 1 tour of central Europe. The hotel is in an excellent location. It is close to everything. The lobby is nice, and the breakfasts are excellent. The problem are the rooms. We had four rooms for a group we traveled with and no one liked their rooms. They tended to be small. They were clean but needed an upgrade. Also, they were on the dark side, and could use some better lighting. I do not know if I would stay here again, but if you plan to spend almost no time in the room, and the price is right you may wish to consider this hotel.

Nice room, very good location as you can easily reach the city center on foot. I have to say I should give a very good note on the hotel's restaurant. The restaurant's food was nice both time I tried it and Zoltan and Alexandra in particular have been very professional, kind and welcoming.

Great hotel staff helpful and friendly. Small but clean comfortable room, that was great to come back to after a long day visiting the sights. Would have got five stars if the breakfast was I bit better managed took forever for items to be replaced. Saying that, there was so much choic on offer. Coffee machines played up but I as very busy.

This hotel is very well placed. The tube station is right outside the door also the tram and bus stop. The bus stop for the airport bus is 200 yards,away. The room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast is great.

Stayed here for a weekend and can recommend as a good base to explore Budapest. The good: Price was good compared to other major chains in the city. Location is great as a base to explore the city from. The staff are friendly and helpful. If you can, have breakfast on the second floor bridge area. I am not sure if you have to pay extra or be a privileged member but it made a great start to the day. Internet good and fast. There is a pool (did not go in it). Tea and coffee in the room. Small bath in the ensuite. The OK: Rooms are tired and small, the price is the price you pay for a reason. Bed not very comfortable but it does the job. You can pay more and have a better room but that's your choice. I think the doors are made of some special material designed to amplify sound from the corridor and surrounding rooms. There is a garage attached but it is not made for nervous drivers or big cars. Its a bit pricey as well (but I am not sure what the rest of the city is like for parking). There are buses from the airport which would be the best option. Overall I would not hesitate to stay again. Budapest is a lovely city and I will definitely be back.

I would not stay here again. The first time ever that we have had money stolen out of a bag in our room. Our fault for not putting it into the safe. The rooms are in serious need of an upgrade especially the bed

stayed here for a concert in Budapest staff were excellent good location and breakfast had a pool which was a bonus bit of a trip to get to my room had to take a lift to 3rd floor walk over to the annex and then take a lift to the 8th floor not a major problem

The hotel is exceptionally well located at Kalvin Ter, which is a transit hub. Coming into the city from the airport (100E express) or train (Keleti Station), this is very convenient and quick to get to. Two metro lines, trams, and several useful bus lines also pass through here. Once you arrive, you'll find Kesckemeti to be one of the most picturesque pedestrian streets in the city, lined with trees and filled with nice restaurants, bars, and cafes leading to Egyetem Ter. Favourites include the Urban Tiger (upscale asian food/cocktails), Belvarosi Diznotoros (sausages and meat), Buddies Burgers (tiny place, but great burgers) and Central Cafe (past Egyetem Ter). There's also one of only a handful of Starbucks in the city. The Market Hall and Jewish Quarter are both within walking distance (~10mins) and there are enough late night eateries and a convenience store nearby that it's not possible to go hungry after a night out. Raday Food Street has seen better days, but there's still a Michelin starred restaurant there. The room was as one would expect from an upscale corporate hotel. Very solid and well appointed, but not flashy. Did not try the hotel breakfast, as it was not included in our rate. The customer service was very friendly, and proved to be very professional and guest-oriented when I remembered that I left my swim trunks to dry on the towel rack well after i had already checked out. I went back the next day to see if anyone had picked them up, but because I was in a rush to make a train, I asked if they could email me if they found them. They did, and it was ready at the front desk for me to pick up the next week. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it as a solid but conservative hotel in a very good location, at a reasonable price.

Good location for all forms of public transport, but also within walking distance of many of the main tourist sights. Our room was large as on corner but others are smaller but still adequate. Good bathroom with bath and shower over and plenty of hot water. Clean and towels changed daily. Wide choice at breakfast. Only problem was lack of ventilation- cannot open a window- we found room too hot and turning down thermostat had little effect

The location of the hotel is close to the city center (within a few blocks) and easy to find your way around. The front desk staff is helpful but I would not call them friendly. My room was "across the bridge". Not sure if that was a good thing but I did have a good view compared to my friend's room. The room was small and the bed left a lot to be desired. I was the only one in my room but if there were two people it would have been crowded and the bed would have been too small. My room was incredibly hot and when the technician came to check on the heating system he told me to open the window to cool it off. I think there were two outlets in my room. The hallways are institutional and smelled of smoke. The bathroom was okay but the hairdryer was from the 1970's and could use a serious upgrade. While staying at the hotel, I had the breakfast buffet twice. It was good and would recommend it if you stayed there.
