“Recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Just got back from this amazing hotel and city.

Rooms are huge with roll top bath and separate rain shower. The design is very modern finished with i-pod dock, espresso machine,robes and flat screen tv. High quality toiletries and a charming turn down service really made our stay really special.

The Spa is quite small housing a Hamman, Sauna and Jacuzzi. We were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves for a couple of hours on Saturday afternoon!

I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a stay in Budapest. There are some great restaurants and bars nearby, and all the main attractions are within easy reach on foot.

Amazing value and more than worthy of its 5* status.

Well, I have spent nearly a week in this hotel. Unfortunately right after the grand opening so it wasn't as prepared as it should be. The safe wasn't working, the elevator wasn't properly working either. But I have to say the room was excellent very nicely furnished with a lot of space.

Iberostar is centrally located but is at the end of a cul-de-sac so there's no noise from the street. If you're lucky you'll have a lovely view out of the window onto a adjacent square. Room was very nice, modern but tasteful, and very specious. Good bed, great bathroom, everything was just perfect. Free wifi. Staff very polite and helpful. Restaurant with good menu at decent prices. Overall I got very good value for money and I look forward to staying here again.

A side note: Iberostar is a big chain of luxury resort hotels. They're all over the world, from the Mallorca to Jamaica but I think this is their only city hotel. I hope to see more of them in the future.

What a wonderful hotel. We arrived exhausted from our 14 hour over-night flight and the room was everything we had hoped. We shared a bath in the GIANT tub, watched movies, and tested the gigantic king bed. Never made it to the Resort Spa, but heard it was good too. Convenient to everything, quiet, clean, perfect for a couple looking for a romantic retreat. We recommend it!

last year, me and my boyfriend had a vacation in Budapest. We found this hotel in Booking.com, it was still new and had only a few reviews, but my boyfriend insisted we need to book this hotel, and boy, was he right!!
The staff gave us a warm welcome (and we needed that since it was sooo cold outside...). The room was huge! and we had a lovely view to the park :)
The bed was very large, so that during the night each one had a place to indulge, and it was also very comfortable.
It's in a really good location, central, half a minute walk there's a metro station, walking distance to all the sites and areas in Pest, 5 minutes walk to the great square at the end of Vaci utca (they had a Christmas market).
the room was very clean and the hotel was quiet, everything you wish for in your vacation. Don't let me start on the shower..... so big! warm water 24/7 and super clean! It was the PERFECT hotel, just the treat that we were looking for!!!!

Room Tip: We chose the standard room for two, it turns out that he has a larger window with a beautiful view...

We stayed at this very stylish hotel to celebrate 2013 new year. The room, service, location were just perfect. The staff are all very kind and helpful. Jacuzzi, gym and saunas are also clean and nice. Unfortunately we didn't try the restaurant or breakfast this time. Definitely will go back next time we visit Budapest! Thank you for a great time!
