“good place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Rooms are quite big and well decorated. Great service and overall experience. Location is prefect. The best thing is breakfast, best I've had in hotels.
Stay here if you ever have a chance. So relaxing.

stayed here in December for a work Christmas party weekend, hotel totally exceed my expectations. The staff were wonderful and very helpful, the room couldn't be faulted and the hotel itself is wonderful to explore, but if you want to go out you are in the centre of Budapest, very close to a wonderful Christmas market. If I had one tiny complaint, it would be that the water came out from under the door of an otherwise great shower ( gorgeous products too. The highlight for all of us had to be the electric toilet seat with it's various washes! Loved the Nespresso machine in each room also. Food was great, had lunch there in the form of a club sandwich with chips ( tons of food) and a fantastic breakfast. Can't wait to return !

Dear,

Thank you for taking time to share your nice memories with us! We are more than happy that we had a chance to host your group and that we comprehended to a successful party weekend.
Yes, the Christmas Market that is located at the Vörösmarty square each year from mid November to end of December is only a few minutes’ walk away from the hotel, just as many Budapest attractions.
Looking forward to welcoming you again at the Buddha-Bar Hotel Budapest!

We stayed in an Executive room for 3 nights in the Buddha Bar hotel, and had a wonderful time. Staff very helpful and friendly, and room had those extra special touches, e.g. heated toilet seat, personal flush and dry toilet, and an illuminated toilet seat, which was great, as did not have to put light on through the night. Had a couple of excellent value lunches in hotel, 2 courses for less than £6 in a 5 * hotel ! The Asian restaurant was also excellent. Worth getting the Fo taxi from airport, as we had a return deal with them, whereby taxi back to airport was only 4,000 florints, ( from airport 5,800 florints). The taxi company used by hotel charges 7,300 florints to the airport, so a good saving. There was no problem with hotel staff calling us a Fo taxi.

I got the stay as a real surprise present from my partner and it just worked out as the most memorable hotel stay ever! We got upgrade upon arrival, welcome drink in the bar, complimentary mineral waters and chocolates and somethings comes with every room: Buddha Bar Music selection in your room and bathroom 24/7!
Our room was so beautifully furnished and cozy and the minibar is massive!

The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful - especially in the bar and when they became a bit busier during the night and our ordered drinks arrived a bit delayed - we just got an extra as a compensation!
I love Buddha Bar music from the first time I have heard long time back and the Hotel Lounge is just giving you that feeling perfectly back from the moment you step in.

During breakfast they seemed to be short of staff, but the courteous service made me not even thinking of that.

So what else can I say?! Thank you for everything!

We spent 2 nights in this hotel and it was amazing.
The hotel main parts are very modern, but all in a gorgeous older building.
I booked an executive room and was upgraded to a junior suite. The room was HUGE, huge bed, a "living room corner", a place with drawers and a safe.
Big glass doors in the room to separate from the bathroom and toilets.
There is a big tv screen which was set in my own language on arrival. The TV contains all the Buddha Bar music compilations that can be played in the room AND in the bathroom which is a nice touch.
The bathroom had an enormous bath place with 2 huge showers coming from the ceiling, very impressive. We also had 2 sinks which is convenient to get prepared in the morning.

Overall it's a very modern hotel with black wood, some red colours and dragoon themes - but it doesn't look cheap at all. I read the room are dark but to me it was OK, there were some pretty powerful ceiling lights when needed, and you could also make a darker moody lighting.
WIFI was included (for unlimited devices) and was working perfectly.

A welcome cocktail was also included at the gorgeous Buddha Bar of the hotel.
Breakfast was very nice, the buffet is not too big but you can order espresso coffee and extras like eggs, pancakes... and it's included.

Overall this hotel was just perfect and the staff was very welcoming.
Location is very central, just corner of the main touristic street and few minutes walk to metro stations.

I stayed here for 1 night on business.

I was looking forward to the stay and was not disappointed. They experience was excellent from check in - check out.
My room was set in a courtyard which was so peaceful and drenched in beautiful lighting. The room was lovely and hi tech with free wireless.
I got a free drink voucher for the lovely bar.

The gym was a bit small, but workable.

Likes - Everything from the room to the staff
Dislikes - The bar was very quiet

Dear,

Thank you very much for taking your time to tell us about your experience at the Buddha-Bar Hotel. We understand how important it is for business men to have a good night’s rest after a busy day so really glad that your room provided you with all that you needed. The Buddha-Bar Lounge is less busy during the weekdays but spring is coming so it will be changed for sure.
Very much looking forward to seeing you again should you come to Budapest on business or pleasure.
