“A comfortable hotel with helpful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I recently stayed at Hotel Palazzo Zichy. I enjoyed my stay because the room was comfortable and the staff was very firendly and very helpful. I really enjoyed their free breakfast buffet because it was very much typical of an combination of an American Breakfast and a Continental breakfast. with many very tasty choices.

A couple of minor negatives cause me to not give it the full five stars:
- It is quite a hike to the closest Metro for moving around the city. Although this did not bother rme much because I need the hike to work off the beautiful cuisine in Budapest, some elderly or couch potatoes might find this more challenging than more expensive hotesl on the mtro line.
-The room was comfortable, but was, in my opinion,a little small for the price. Furthermore, those who have previously commented on neighboring room noise are correct. I woke up because of neighboring room noise through thin walls while trying to sleep off my jet lag.

Overall, I can certainly recommend this hotel for those who ar enot bothered by the 2 issues above. I would certainly use this hotel again if I come back to Budapest.

There is little I can add to all the great reviews about this lovely hotel. A lot of time and effort went into finding a nice hotel in this beautiful city. What a great decision to pick this one!! A lovely hotel, helpful and committed staff, a central location, lovely food. My only regret was the fact that we could not stay longer!! Hopefully, we will put that right next year. Thank you for a lovely stay.

This is a beautiful hotel in a gorgeous building. Judit, the reservation manager, was a pleasure to deal with. She always graciously answered all my questions, and helped me change my reservation when something came up. The staff were always helpful, and greeted you with a smile. They even loaned us a large umbrella one day when it was raining. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and delicious, with eggs, meats, breads, jams, cereal, fresh fruits, coffee, and juices. As others have mentioned, the hotel isn't in the middle of all the sites, but rather a 5 minute walk to the metro station with easy access to the rest of Budapest. Sites are also walkable if you have time. Believe the reviews and stay here!

The location was great for exploring Budapest. As soon as we walked into the hotel, we were very impressed. It's quite modern inside and esthetically pleasing. The included buffet breakfast was great and really provided an excellent selection! The room was on the small side, but offered a wonderful, full-powered shower and also a walk-in closet (definitely nice for a longer stay). The bed was very comfortable and noise did not seem to be an issue at all within the hotel. Really, a great place in such a fantastic city!!

The positive reviews are correct. This is an outstanding hotel tucked just far enough away from the tourist spots. The rooms are outstanding and the service is second to none. Everything is an easy walk from the hotel. We especially enjoyed some of the local shops and restaurants in the immediate area. We enjoyed or stay and will return.

Excellent hotel, well within walking distance of many sights in Pest, and also has easy links to local transport.

Staff were exceptional across the board and cannot do enough to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Would recommend this hotel to all travellers

We stayed at the Plaazzo Zicky for three night during the first week of September and loved this hotel. It is very modern and clean. We booked the junior suit on the 5th floor and it was just amazing! King Size bed, specious room and a huge wash room with a shower and a Jacuzzi!
Breakfast was great as well even thought it was all self serve! The only flow of this hotel is its location! it is in a residential neighborhood and its at least 15 minutes (if not 20) away from the city center and the water! We walked, even late at night but if you want to be by the water in the center, than this hotel is not for you. I would have loved for this hotel to be closer to the city center but it was not really a problem, at least not for us! Staff was friendly and knowledge.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Junior Suit, Room no. 518 which was just absolutely amazing!!!!
