A 3 night stay at the end of June in the Marriott Budapest, and chosen for its excellent location right on the banks of the Danube.
It has to be said that this is a very ugly building – neither the façade nor the rear do it any favours, especially when the very beautiful (and very expensive) Four Seasons Gresham is only a block or so away. The back of the building looks like an old power station. However, do not let this put you off – this is a very good hotel and all rooms face the river, so you won’t have to look out back anyway. The interior has been updated to look stylish and modern.
A warm and efficient greeting was received in reception and we were allowed into our room early (we were also allowed a late check-out too – big tick for that). We only had a standard but it was still a large room with two double beds and a large bathroom, and of course that all important, uninterrupted view across the Danube. There are balconies to the rooms, but no-way to gain access to them, so don’t expect to be able to sit out with a pre-dinner drink. Complimentary ice is available on request.
There is free wi-fi for one hour a day in the lobby and bar areas.
The breakfast was wonderfully varied and of good quality and we chose to eat ours on the patio area outside – again with a lovely view of the river. Service was pleasant and attentive at all times.
The location, next to the river is excellent, and within easy walking distance to the metro, buses and trams.
NB EU citizens aged 65 and older travel FREE on all the public transport except the boats!
Happy to recommend this hotel - just ignore the outside 1960’s ‘design’.
