“Excellent Location and a really good value for the money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

As others have mentioned, the Kempinski is located right in the heart of Budapest's tourists sites, and near one of the main metro stations, making it easy to visits locations further away. It is also within walking distance of the castle district.

The price is very reasonable, about the equivalent of $140 US when I was there last year (August, 2012). Where else in Europe can you stay at a 5 star hotel right in the middle of everything for that price? The service was very good, rooms were cleaned regularly, and the wifi was free and was reasonably fast. All in all, about what you'd expect for this class of hotel, and at a very reasonable price!

I stayed at the Kempinski during a businesstrip. The hotel was also the location where the meetings were held.
The room was spacious.
The Bathroom was also spacious, but I found the bath to small for such a luxury hotel.
The meetingrooms were fine, although there could have been more coffee available.
Best was the dining room: I enjoyed a great breakfast and lunch.

Location, location, location-- near Danube & near prime metro hub and near street tram-- near bridge to Buda-side. Also adjacent to park. Surrounding area are mostly pedestrian-only, so there's no traffic issues. Can't judge lobby as it's currently under renovation.

Spent a long weekend in Budapest and stayed at Kempinski hotel. The rooms are standard and clean, it's good value for the price. Best of all is the location and the service. The staff provide high standard service - both attentive and experienced. I forgot some clothes in my room and realized when I got back home. Called the hotel and they found it immediately and would send it back to my country without charge. Location is excellent, walking distance to almost everything. Super close to the subway from where you can have access to all the three lines in Budapest. It's also close to the bar/restaurant area in the ruin area. Also very close to the meeting point where you can have free walking tours (really recommend this one).

Warmly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is recommendable. Its roomrates are quite good for a 5*, especially while travelling with kids. The location is superb. Just about every interesting attraction is in walking distance.
During our stay, the central hall was being refurbished. As a sort of compensation we got free WiFi. Nice! Climate control was the only problem. Temp in the room was too high and the air very, very dry. In february! Would go again, though.

The Kempinski, Budapest is a very great hotel located in the Pest side of the city. This hotel is exceptionally clean, well managed, with great staff at the front desk. Every one was so informative and helpful with any questions we had. We had many. The staff is very professional and this hotel is top notch in all respects. The rooms are a nice size, clean and beautiful. The bathroom was very nice and luxurious, with mother-of-pearl tile. One of the best things about the hotel besides the hotel itself, was the area. It is close to St. Stephens Basilica, the river for a nice little stroll, some shopping, and the Gerbeaud Cafe. The subway is merely a minute or so walk away, which made traveling to different sights so east and convenient. Here I was in a strange city and maneuvered as if I lived there. The breakfast was great, which much to choose from, and the Sunday Brunch was fantastic. Definitely plan and budget for the brunch. Great meal! Also the staff were friendly. If you go to the area of the Gerbeaud (a very short walk) in the mornings, there may be a gentleman playing Hungarian music on his violin. It was nice to sit by the fountain and listen to him. Another part of the Hungarian experience. Last but not least, I feel this hotel offers a very good value for the quality of the hotel.

It was a pleasure to learn from your comments that you truly enjoyed your stay at our "faboulous" hotel and that you had an overall positive impression of our hotel's location, room, facilities, as well as the service - especially the Sunday Brunch and attentiveness provided by our staff. We are grateful to read that you enjoyed the Gerbaud Cafe. Please count on our all Clefs d'Or concierge team to assist you with further exploring beautiful Budapest upon your next stay with us.
