4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Excellent venue for a business trip. Close to city centre, river and restaurants. The staff at the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. Sitting in the bar is an experience, you really get a feel of the hotels history. Recently rebuilt and refurb, however retains the Art Deco feel of the time it was a bath.

The Continental Zara is a sizable (270 rooms) modern hotel, yet it does not feel that big. The whole hotel has been renovated in 2010. The facade is classy, the lobby impressive and the gallery coffee-lounge bar is amazing with its view into the courtyard. Service was efficient and friendly too. Room is neatly designed, though the materials feel a... More

Clean hotel, very courteous staff. The staff are very helpful when it comes to asking for directions. The rooms were well cleaned and the cleaners were very thorough. Our room was very quiet despite the active night-life in the city. The hotel floors were serene and there was a distinct feeling of calmness in the common areas. The hotel restaurant... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here recently on a short break to the beautiful Budapest. On our arrival we were informed our room had been upgraded to a Junior Suite which was absolutely stunning with a comfortable separate bedroom, lounge area and gorgeous bathroom. The hotel is just off the 'main drag' but central enough to walk everywhere comfortably and... More

I recently visited this hotel March 11th-15th 2015, and it was easily one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in. The rooms were a good size, huge beds and kept very clean, the reception staff were very helpful and It has a brilliant location with local restaurants and bars near by, I would recommend Champs Sports Bar if you're a...

stayed here with my husband and four other couples and had a really lovely time the hotel is on a back street but with a variety of local bars and restaurants nearby, a ten min walk to the Danube and central area. The hotel is immaculate and we stayed in standard double but the bed was more like a super-king... More
