All the good things you read about the Zara Hotel are true. It starts with a helpful staff. It continues with rooms that are comfortable.
Free afternoon coffee and tea are bonuses. This is definitely the place to stay in Budapest. You will not be disappointed.

Dear Guest,

thank you for sharing your pleasant experiences with the readers of Tripadvisor. I have to disappoint however, since January it is not allowed to smoke in any public spaces in Hungary, therefore in our hotel neither except in some bedrooms and in the gardens.

Looking forward to your next visit.

Best regards,

best choice for us. We took the Executive room. The room is really big, well equipped with everything we needed and more. The location of the hotel is very good.
Good service and good breakfast at the restaurant and very interesting business Center.

Dear Guest,

I appreciate your review on the size of our Executive room and especially on the breakfast since not all the reviews reflect this positive opinion on these two topics.
