We were here on my 50th birthday, and we could not make a better choice. Everything was excellent. My husband contacted the reception in advance and they were very helpful and friendly to organize restaurant reservation and room services. They even upgraded our room and gave special compliments. Our room was very nice and spacious, beautifully decorated. The extra bed... More

I had read other reviews and was looking forward to my stay. However, our experience was mixed. The entrance area is spectacular, but this is still a locale which bears the scars of 1945 with abandoned buildings,graffiti and strip clubs. It is also some way back from the more attractive tourist areas. Room was nice if small, and quiet. Food... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. When we had any (minor) issues they were dealt with immediately and that includes when we managed to get water from the shower all over the bathroom floor. It is probably wrong to pick out individual staff, but Vanda, Adam and Andrew were particularly helpful. We... More

The stars at the Continental are the staff, they are top notch. they are friendly, helpful and will do whatever it takes to make your stay a good one. The location is a ways from the main attractions, so if walking is an issue beware. Several metro stops located a short distance away. The metro and buses are easy to... More

Came here with my husband for 3 nights for our anniversary. I can't find anything to fault about this hotel. The location is great for food and drinks and about a 20 min walk to the castle district. The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel was nice to look at, a renovated 19th century bath and spotless. The breakfast... More

Walking into the hotel we thought it was going to be an amazing experience, however quite the opposite. firstly our check in time differed from the check in time stated through the site we booked from so we had make ourselves busy for a few hours which is not a problem in this beautiful City however just a bit inconvenient...

Excellent location, just a quick walk from downtown. Still a quiet hotel with swimmingpool on the roof, one outside and one inside. Clean and spacy rooms. Nice staff. Fantastic breakfast and OK dinner (noisy entertainment, local dance). Will recomend this hotel to my friends.

The welcome, jaw dropping entrance and room were all very good. The only drawback was breakfast time. Breakfast time was usually very crushed, busy and staff seemed to struggle to keep the food topped up and to clear tables. Sometimes your table was cleared while you went to refill a coffee cup. Moral of the story, always leave somebody at... More

Budapest is a fantastic place for a family vacation. The area has a multitude of venues for music and the arts. Restaurants are also fantastic. I was surprised that all our restaurants visited were able to accomadate us at dinner times around 6:00 to 7:00 pm whereas most of the residents usually dine much later. Budapest will definitely be a... More
