“Brilliant hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

We stayed in this lovely lovely hotel in May this year. It is ideally located in Pest- yes there is walking to do but the point is you can walk to the "downtown area" and if you're prepared to walk on a bit then you can easily get across Chain Bridge and up to Buda.

Anyway the point is the hotel is great, the staff are delightful, knowledgeable and helpful. The hotel is clean, stylish and so comfortable, everything you need is in your room. Breakfast is lovely (although the dining room is fairly cramped, requiring snake hips to negotiate the tables- but hey a very minor point and the pain au chocolate is worth it!! )

Would definitely recommend the hotel and would love to think we will go back one day soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in 315 and were very happy.

Stayed here after a river cruise. The hotel is in a very nice area with sights and many restaurants nearby. The staff is super helpful even getting us tram tickets! There is a nice free breakfast included with the price. The hotel and the rooms are modern and very clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Budapest.

We are staying here based on earlier Trip Advisor reviews and agree wholeheartedly with the positive comments. This very sleek hotel is hidden behind a beautiful old exterior - staff are very helpful, the breakfast offers many options (including the ability to add their fresh herbs to your eggs!), and the location is great - walking distance to many of the highlights and yet tucked away in a quiet little street. We are so pleased that we decided to stay here rather than another big chain!

Room Tip: Doesn't have a swimming pool but a gym in basement. We're staying on the 4th floor and over...

We stayed at the Palazzo to celebrate my 50th birthday, the helpfulness and attitude of the staff were first class throughout the duration of our stay. The hotel is impeccably clean, with rooms serviced daily. Breakfast is excellent with a selection to accommodate the majority of choices. Complimentary tea, coffee and mineral water is available daily till 5pm. Bar is minimal, no draught beer and is on the pricey size. There is however a local bar within 100 yards that is extremely cheap with a fantastic informative barman who appreciates the finer aspects of alcohol. Hotel is in walking distance of a number of squares which provide an excellent selection of food and drinks, 15 minutes walk to the centre of Budapest. Overall an enjoyable and excellent hotel.

This hotel is very close to everything you might need in Budapest even though it is not in an immediate tourist district. There are great outdoor restaurants around the corner and transit is only a couple of blocks away. The hotel itself was beautiful and clean. The staff were incredibly helpful, the hotel was quiet and the breakfasts were fantastic.

We stayed here for only one night after ending a cruise and before flying home. We picked this sight unseen, based on reviews here. As we left river area and the old historic district, it seemed we were heading into a less desirable area. But first impression was wrong. As the cab arrived at the hotel and we entered the lobby, it was clear this was a very fine hotel. The inside is completely updated, functional and very classy. Further, we found the location to be a reasonable walk to most areas we wanted to see, and very close to one of the main functioning streets through the area. A limited number of restaurants were close.
Absolutely no hesitation in staying here again.

Room Tip: Some rooms window onto an atrium-like center court, some face street/adjacent buildings. We had cen...
