“Standard Mercure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is up to the Mercure standard. Free wifi is a bonus. Breakfast was adequate. The only complaint I have is that a small bottle of complimentary water was provided with the first night but no additional bottled water was provided for the other two nights. Recommended for business travelers.

Mercure Budapest Buda, however on the other side of the Danube, is easily accessible by subway. There is train station and tram stops nearby. Staff was friendly and polite, the overall experience was satisfying too - I got what I expected, The problem was that I booked twin and got double bedroom. It's a good choice for travellers with moderate needs and budget.

I came to this hotel since it was offered to us as a package. The hotel is decent, the staff is not particularly friendly and the room is sized, although the bathroom is very dated.

The worse thing about this hotel is its location- getting to/from the city centre on foot is quite challenging and the metro, which is very close, closes at 11.30pm. I would suggest staying in Pest when visiting Budapest.

The view from our room was nice, but a bit noisy.

Dear Cahrleme M,

I greatly appreciate that you chose to stay with us. The Hotel Mercure Budapest Buda is fortunate to have convenient rooms in the Castle District area that provides an ideal base to explore many of Budapest’s attractions. Our standard rooms are spacious, very comfortable and supplied with all the modern conveniences, not to speak about privilege rooms that can cater the most sophisticated needs as well (double bed, coffee-tea making facilities, LCD TV, rain shower, special setup in the bathroom, bathrobes, slippers...). I was surprised to read your thoughts on my staff. We are always ready to give the best services for our clients and they always appreciate it. Service and attention to detail are of paramount importance to our team and to this end we have an extensive training and induction program called MSense for all new employees to complete and pass.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to share your observations. I look forward to having an opportunity to be of service to you in the future.
Best regards,

A. Nagy

The hotel was just 4 metro stops away from the city centre and within walking distance from the main sightseeing areas. There were several restaurants around the area and a large supermarket just behind the hotel.
We were upgraded to a premium room with coffee making facilities and this was definitely a plus point as we were traveling with a 20 months old baby. A cot was also provided free.
The metro station was 5 mins away and it was very convenient to get around. A halal kiosk selling kebabs was also located nearby.
Although the hotel was located at the buda area and we had to climb up numerous steps to get to the castle, it was still managable even for my elderly parents.

Room Tip: Get the premium room as it was bug and spacious

Room is clean, reasonable size. Wifi available in the rooms but one needs to keep signing. Toilet and bathroom is clean. We were on the 7th floor ( non-smoking) and it was noisy in the wee hours of the morning. Can hear people talking loudly along the corridor outside. We stayed 2 nights and both nights were noisy. Our room faced the city (Pest side) and it was a lovely view. Breakfast was good, though range is rather limited. Behind the hotel is a supermarket and adjacent to the hotel is a shopping centre.

Room Tip: Friends on 6th floor said it was not noisy on their floor(smoking floor)
