The Zara is a diamond in a neighborhood that is not quite there yet. The Zara is located near the Hotel Boscolo, New York Cafe and the Hop On Hop Off, and many of the things we were interested in visiting. It is a moderate walk from the Danube, allowing us to see the Pest area of Budapest. The hotel... More

Overall it is a very good place to spend time in Budapest, but wifi was not available in our room and we had to go outside of the room to get signal. Also there was very little info available from the staff withregards to famous Budapest bath

The hotel is beautifully decorated with marble and trikes in the lobby. Live music plays in the lobby at night. The rooms are small but nicely decorated and up to date. The staff was helpful and polite. The outdoor courtyards are beautiful. Breakfast was not included but many small quaint cafes are present within two blocks.

The front gate is, to say the least, spectacular, and the hotel is very pleasant, not exactly centrally located, but gives a chance to see a part of Pest that is not as tourist focused. Nonetheless, it was not a problem. Rooms are generous, comfortable, wifi is good, showers are great. Commen: Be careful about Taxis in Budapest. The vast... More

The building is pleasant, clean and the rooms are spacious and airy. The breakfast is a joy! It would have been 5 stars but for a day with no water and air con... More

Me and my boyfriend got a great deal on this hotel with an offer on jet2.com. The hotel offers hotel transfers for 55 euros both ways which is reasonable, but if you ring a taxi when you get to the airport you will save about £10. Just be aware that not all taxi drivers speak English and may not know... More

My family stayed in Zara (June 2015) and it was a very pleasant experience. The rooms were nice, good wifi and great breakfast! Its a 10 minutes walk to the Chain bridge. There is a bus stop around the corner. The staff was very helpful.

This is a nice small hotel near a lot of amenities in Budapest, next to the market and across the bridge from the baths.The rooms are clean and quiet. The breakfast is buffet style and have a good selection. The tour buses stop at the market and you can also buy tickets here.
