“Equipotential”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

The room met basic needs and could do with an upgrade. However, the hotel staff were friendly and the breakfast area was lovely. The buffet/continental breakfast was very nice. There are a few giftware shops in the lobby which make the hotel an ideal place to pick up a reminder of your visit. Located in a beautiful city, it was simply a place to stay.

In Budapest for a short business trip and conference at the Mercure in Buda in early February. The hotel is large, about 20 -25 years old and from the outside is nothing special. The hotel is close to the Budapest metro and the Déli pályaudvar metro station and within walking distance of the Buda Citidel (a 20 minute energetic walk).

The reception areas are slightly dated but are large, warm and welcoming. The staff are polite, helpful and professional and speak excellent English and German. The rooms were lower range 4 star, but the bathroom in my room was larger and better than expected and mine had a powerful and refreshing ceiling shower. I was presenting at the conferance and needed to revise some slides the evening before. The desk area in my room was perfect for this and the wifi was excellent and solid (why can't othr hotels achieve this). Bed comfortable; I had an excellent night's sleep.

All in all a very comfortable stay. Might not have been my choice if I was here for a weekend break but a comfortable and well run establishment.

Room Tip: Hotel has plenty of rooms looking out at Buda and the Castle.

Stayed at this hotel for business as it was very close to the offices I was working at. In terms of value for money, it is excellent and much cheaper than nearby hotels near to the castle area. The rooms were clean & comfortable with all that you required and best of all (for me) was the free & reliable wifi.

My room overlooked the train station but even with the window open I was not disturbed by any noise but being in a city location I would not expect it to be tranquil.

Food at the hotel was good. I had dinner there as I was on my own and would recommend the sizzling chicken!

The staff were very friendly and welcoming on my arrival.

My only complaint is that there is no gym to use but despite that I will use the hotel again.

I have returned to Buda Mercure a couple of times in the recent years, and I recognised the reason: this hotel represents a solid value and definitely worth the price!
I mean, maybe this is not a full 4 star establishment, but definitely above the 3 star category, and compared to the value it is very favourable in its pricing.
I spent a night in Buda Mercure this time, given its close proximity to sights and traffic options. Front desk was again very polite and quick, and a welcome card awaited me in my room on the 8th floor (recommended.) Yes, the place shows the signs of aging, and soon it needs some refurbishments, hwever, it is very clean and in good order. I missed a few amenities in the bathroom, including a magnifying mirror and a body lotion. Both the bathroom and the room was very clean, the bed was comfy. The minibar was okay, and the hotel offers a good roomservce menu. Not much change in the selection of TV channels, though....
Breakfast was fine, catering most tastes.
Wifi is free of charge and worked pretty well across the whole hotel. Checkout was again very efficient. I will return...again...

Room Tip: Get a room on the higher floors.

Myself and my boyfriend are just back from 4 nights at this hotel.
We found the staff to be extremely polite, professional and helpful.
Our bedroom was very clean and contained everything we needed, despite being a little small- however we spent very little time in it. We overlooked a train station but thankfully we weren't distrupted by the noice.
The hotel is located in the Buda part of the city which is the best bit in my opinion. Its within walking distance of the stunning castle district, restaurants and shops etc. (The walk involves over 200 steps so maybe not for everyone!). We even walked back and forth to the Pest part of the city.
We were able to buy bus tour tickets and spa tickets from the hotel reception which was helpful.
Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel and we will certainly book Mercure hotels in the future.

This hotel was very clean and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and although not huge, sufficed. I spent two nights here and very little of that time, outside of sleeping was in the room. There wasn't much of a view from my 3rd floor window but the hotel is located a very short distance from a little shopping strip, train station, and grocery store. There is a little souvenir shop located downstairs of the lobby, the lady was extremely nice and the items were reasonable priced. Breakfast, I have to say, was not good. Most items were cold, and even after we asked that the eggs be warmed up they tasted quite horrible. I ate a lot of bread with butter and jelly to hold me over until lunch
Overall, good location and reasonably priced but I would not rate this a 4 star hotel.
