I picked this hotel based on excellent value for a quality hotel. I was also looking for a hotel with a pool in this 'hot' city. The service on reception was efficient, however it wasn't particularly friendly; More functional. The room was lovely, although fairly compact, but had everything you needed, and the bed was very large and comfortable. Breakfast... More

We stayed here in Jan 2014, all i can say is Love it. The hotel is very plush for the price, the staff are very nice, friendly and helpful *booking cabs to various locations was a great help. It is moments walk from the "High street" and not too far from the local markets and sites. I would very much... More

I stayed at the Continental Zara for a couple of nights in late june and it was a fantastic location. A few minutes walk from the metro and it was only one stop on the metro from the main train station in Budapest. The nightlife was fantastic so if you're looking to stay at a really nice hotel & go... More

We stayed at the Continental Hotel Zara a few weeks ago with a group of 18 of us and had a fantastic time. The rooftop pool was lovely and relaxing and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Great location as well to get to the local nightlife as well as to the centre. First class.

A fairly well placed hotel right in the middle of the Jewish quarter of the 19th century Budapest, Pest side. Good half an hours walk to St Stephen's, twenty minutes to the shopping Vaci street. A pre-2nd WW hotel was closed in 70-ies and was virtually falling apart before being restored and notably enlarged into a pleasant 4*S design hotel.... More

We stayed for 3 nights on a short Budapest holiday with my parents. Our flight was a fairly early one, so we arrived at the hotel before the actual check-in time. Fortunately enough this was no problem and the receptionist even found us rooms opposite to each other (which was really convenient since we were travelling together). The rooms were... More

This is a very nice hotel close to restaurants and shopping. Very impressed with hotel staff - the minute our cab hit the curb staff came to our assistance to take luggage inside. The desk staff were very pleasant and gave us good recommendations for places to eat. The room was not large but very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed... More

I wanted to take this opportunity to post a quick comment. In short I thought the Hotel was extremely well presented, the staff were excellent and very friendly, the food was fantastic and the roof top swimming pool very very good. In the UK we are too quick to complain when things are not to our satisfaction therefore I wanted... More
