A lovely hotel nestled within a side street just off one of the main thoroughfares through Budapest. Room was clean, modern and big enough for two of us to be comfortable within. Staff were mostly very friendly and helpful, we used the massage service one day which was very good and reasonably priced. Used the mini-bar a few times and... More

Continental Zara in Budapest was a great experience from the start. Spent 3 nights in January for a birthday surprise and couldn't have asked for better accomodation. Spotless hotel with friendly staff who were happy to assist at every occassion with arranging day trips and booking evening excursions. Lovely little spa to relax and quite an extensive breakfast buffet. The... More

We very much enjoyed our stay. The staff is very friendly, that what really stout out for us.Breakfast is outstanding, the best I've ever had! There was a lot of choice and everything was as good. Plates were immediately removed from the table when no longer needed. The room was as expected but very clean! The spa was also good,... More

Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights and have been upgraded from an executive room to a suit with a large balcony on the top floor and even got complimentary bottle of champagne, as it was my partner's birthday. Room was very clean as was the rest of the hotel. The staff very friendly and attentive. Hotel is very close... More

We had booked this hotel,as it is 50 yards away from an apartment we own in Dohany utca which we were in the process of selling. We had stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions due to its location and also the fact it has a cool roof top pool. We attempted to check in but were told that due... More

Dear Hunterstrystjambo, I’m very very sorry that your visit to Budapest started with a „bad escapade”. I’m almost 40 years in the hotel business and I know, the overbooking is the most unpleasant situation both for the guests and for the hotel staff too. Unfortunately it happens sometimes even in the best houses too. You beleive or not, it had... More

Lovely hotel, about a 15 minute walk to the city centre. Hotel has been nicely put together and the attention to detail is impressive. Hotel rooms are what you would expect for the price if on the slightly small side. Hotel staff extremely friendly and very attentive happy to help whenever they could. Breakfast could do with a little bit... More

Dear Rory M, Thank you very much for your feedback, both your positive and negative comments. It was good to read your commendatory words about the staff and about our Galery Cafe. I agree we do not have any spa, we always refrain to use this word. It is a wellness area in a city hotel. Most of the 4... More

Recently stayed three nights at this hotel. Not sure I can relate it to some of the other reviews, particularly someone who said it was in a 'classy' street. It isn't, it's in a rather run down road with some disused buildings and a few lower end small shops, in what used to be the old Jewish quarter. Having said... More

Dear frankl253, Thank you for your rather long but all-in review. Reading your review I had the feeling to read a mystery shopper review. It was good to read that you were satisfied with the reception team and also with the housekeeping. You are right, the staff of the hotel is one of our strenghts. Regarding smokers, the courtyard of... More

The hotel reception area is very grand and this continued when we arrived at our room. It was a lovely double room with lots of storage space and most importantly a kettle. However, for me the room was roasting and opening the window (no air con) did not really work. The breakfast choice was superb and offered a selection of... More

Relatively new hotel in Budapest. Built using the infrastructure of an older building to stunning effect. Grand entrance leads onto a vaulted ceiling reception area. The staff were impeccable - courteous and extremely helpful. The bedroom was one of the best we have ever stayed in. Brilliant design. Lighting was very efective. Bathroom (shower only) modern and very clean. The... More

I've been in the hotel the first time, definitely not the last. The hotel itself is amazing. It's in the heart of the city, close to public transportations in a nice classy narrow street. I felt myself a bit underdressed, when I realised the majority is elegant... I had an executive room booked, and on arrival I've got a pleasant... More
