We stayed in the hotel for 7 nights, using Budapest as our base for Hungary. Palazzo Zichy was definitely the right choice. The rooms were comfortable. Although the superior rooms are not large, the layout gives a spacious look. Only one couple had the junior suite and they were really happy with their room.
There are two good coffee machines in the breakfast room. The breakfast spread is okay, although the cereals selection could be improved. The muesli was a little too hard. The fruit selection can also be more varied, possibly with highlights on Hungarian seasonal fruits.
As we were travelling every day and did not get back to the hotel till quite late, we were not able to take advantage of the coffee room where you can have free drinks, up to 5 pm. Perhaps, a little fridge can be put in the area directly opposite the coffee room for those who need a bottle of water, as there is no complimentary bottle of water in the room.
The location of the hotel is great, close to the sights and many good restaurants.
What I like most is the service from the hotel staff. They were helpful in offering suggestions and booking of restaurants. They were efficient and knowledgeable, giving good information on directions. The front desk staff and security guy are all good, always ready to give assistance, with a nice smile.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Budapest.
