“Superb Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Went for a short weekend break. There is really no room for complain, this was by far one of the best hotels we have stayed in. The view from the pool across the chain link bridge is awesome.

It is central to everything, food nightlife etc.

Would definitely go back.

This hotel is certainly up there as one of my favorites, certainly in Budapest but in the world. I really can't praise the hotel enough, the lobby is spectacular I always pause for a moment when arriving to take in the splendor which to be honest continues through the rest of the hotel. The hotel bar is great taking into the fact you can sit and just look at this wonderful building - apparently the cocktails are excellent too. The food is excellent, as good as you'll find in the city and caters for local dishes as well as more well known dishes for the international traveller. Location wise it is great for tourists, opposite the chain link bridge, which offers an excellent 10K running route for those who are interested and next to the (only?) Casino in Budapest. The Danube has the assortment of bars and restaurants within walking distance, and the John Bull British Pub is around the corner. Price wise it is extremely good for such an establishment, I ordered beer, wine and a nice steak dinner which came to about £30 per head (which includes gratuity). The attention to detail in the rooms is where it is at - very comfortable and spacious. Finally the staff - customer service perfection - can't fault any of them from the door man to the people in the Spa - just perfect.

Room Tip: You can gather plenty of free water in bottles from the Spa rather than paying for it. Some of th...

This hotel has everything you expect from a 5 star luxury property . we stayed here in june celebrating a friends birthday for 3 nights, so it was a big group , and truly one of the best and most memorable experiences. rooms , food , restaurants, ambiance were outstanding . the best possible location you can ask for in the city , just 2 minutes away from the river ... chain bridge , 'vaci' shopping street ... restaurants , bars etc .

Room Tip: choose a room with the view of the river danube

This Hotel is almost everything a luxury hotel should be with excellent service. Great location excellent views. Highly recommended. If you go for the Danube view room ask for a higher floor, our 2nd floor room had the view partially obscured by the beautiful and very leafy trees.

Easily the best hotel in Budapest. I stayed here for 4 nights and the service could not have been better. From the airport pickup through checkout everything was perfect. Decor, food, service, amenities all on par to any luxury hotel in the world. Would certainly recommend to any and all travelers. A truly beautiful hotel in a truly beautiful city.

This hotel is beautiful (you can ask at the Front Desk for a tour). It is a faithfully restored "palace" that is staffed by competent, caring and knowledgeable people who all seem to take great pride in it. The breakfast is outstanding--especially if you enjoy goose foie gras, a Hungarian specialty--buy some at the Central Market before you go home as a yummy souvenir of an outstanding experience.

Room Tip: Ask the Front Desk for a tour of the hotel.
