Generally we were really pleased with this hotel, staff were mostly very friendly. We didn't have any issues with air conditioning as a few people have mentioned here. The hotel is very impressive inside and out. We got a good deal for the price we paid. The hotel is about 15-20 minute walk from the Danube and surrounded by quite... More

Dear TravelScrabble, Firstly thank you very much for your feedback, although it contains a few „low blows”. Firstly we are not a Spa or wellness hotel, we are „just” a typical city hotel with some „cultural heritage” of the former art nouveau Hungaria Spa from the early 20th century. You are right, our pools are not big, but we didn’t... More

After looking at numerous websites we decided on this hotel based on the reviews on trip advisor. Most of which hit the nail on the head. Initially you don't feel it's such a great location however after getting out and about you soon realise it's perfect. Everywhere is scattered anyway so nowhere is any closer to everything. On arrival we... More

Dear kerryyoung1, Thank you very much for your long and all-in review. I was so much lovelorn after reading your comment about the staff since the service is one of our strengths. I really don’t know what’s happened with my staff, I do apologise for that. The receptionist with long curly hair is Eszter, she is really nice and laudable.... More

The hotel is centrally located. From there it was a short walk, taxi, bus or tram ride to most places in Budapest city centre. The standard room we were in was more than adequate for our needs. The roof top terrace & pool was beautiful. The staff was the hotel's greatest asset. All made every effort to make our stay... More

This hotel is very nice inside and has a beautiful rooftop terrace. It is just outside the heart of the beautiful part of Budapest, maybe one or two blocks away. The room temperature was a little warm but other than that I had absolutely no complaints. The breakfast was very nice as well.

This hotel is very well placed for central Budapest with very nice rooms and helpful staff.it has a traditional facade but is very modern inside with spacious rooms and good breakfast. Dinner was very good indeed with exceptional service.

We booked one night at Hotel Zara before our Viking river cruise. Coming from the Airport the taxi pulled up in front of the hotel in an older almost shabby neighborhood. We entered the hotel greeted by very helpful bellmen and looked over a very beautiful lobby with outdoor gardens, a balcony lounge and restaurants. Checking in the concierge had... More

Breakfasts were great with a good selection of food. Used the pool and sauna a couple of times which was pleasant. Nice place to come back to after a long day treading Budapest's streets.

Dear littlegreenlondon, Thank you very much for sharing your impessions about our hotel. I’m very sorry to read that you didn’t find the character of our building, although for the entrance area and the hotel lobby has been „used” the portico of the former art nouveau Hungaria Spa.
