“Room with a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We stayed two nights in one of the castle facing double rooms, which was lovely (clean, not too small, nice balcony) but we spent the last night in one of the river facing suites, and it was AMAZING! The terrace is huge and has simply the best views of Budapest we saw all holiday - no need to trek up any hills for this one! The room is massive and has a hot tub which was really fun. Generally speaking the hotel is great as well. The lunch and dinner we had were delicious, the breakfast is ok too (but maybe not as good as everything else). And the staff were really, really lovely. All in all a good egg of a hotel!

Room Tip: Honestly, we think some of the best views of Budapest are from Room L2 in the Lanchid 19 Hotel!

Dear Lizzy and Mat,

I am so glad you liked both types of rooms, the one facing the Castle and the one facing the Danube. I definitely agree, our panorama suites offer the best view of Budapest, even from the jakuzzi bathtub. It is also a pleasure to read you have liked our restaurant's menu.

Thank you very much for your splendid review and I hope you will return to us.

Kind regards,

I've been using Lanchid hotel for business travel for a few years now. It is without a doubt one of the best price/performance places around. Fantastically located with splendid views of the river and the bridges, very good food and friendly and helpful staff. Cannot reccomend them enough.

Room Tip: Always ask to get a room facing the river as it offers stunning views through a full wall windows.

Smallish but perfectly formed. Super, friendly and very professional service. Nothing is too much trouble. Fantastic breakfasts and all other food. Rooms clean and adequate, if a bit small. This is a design hotel right on the Danube. Great views at the front, booked long ahead, but at the back it is quieter with also lovely views to the castle.

Room Tip: Good whether overlooking the rive or the mountain at the back.

My wife and I stayed at the Lanchid 19 (Room 53) from April 25 to 29. In general very good experience buy not without a couple of issues. Here are the details.
Location - excellent for us. In the Buda site but still just a nice walk to Pest and all the actions without the noise and traffic issues of Pest. Also a nice walk or Funicular ride right there to beautiful and colonial Buda. Once you cross the bridge to the hotel site in Buda, it was a little dark at night (maybe not for a woman alone) but nothing happened. Our room, viewing the Danube was top notch, excellent view.
Staff in the front desk area and cafeteria - very nice and always helpful.
Cafeteria and breakfast - we only ate one morning and it was to the European standards. Breakfast a little expensive but good. Other days we went to other places. The reduced breakfast option is nice for the price.
The main problem we had was in the daily cleaning of our room. Except for one day, they always forgot something. Once toilet paper, another time soap bar, and the cleaning was average. Maybe they had an issue with certain employee.
But in general it was to the reviews previously mentioned in this site. We think we paid for what we got but nothing more. Budapest is a gorgeous city. We loved it!

Room Tip: River side, above 4th floor

Stayed here for a weekend and would happily return. I booked one of the Danube suites on the top floor with an Amazing view of the River. Having recently been to Paris and Zurich it was nice to get a good Hotel without breaking the bank.

Room Tip: Get one of the suites on the top floor if you can.

Location and view are just fantastic and hotel design is also very nice. This was our 3rd time and this hotel and first one for longer than two nights.

In order to have an excellent experience I would expect:
1. Towels changed when put on the bathroom floor (not returned back on the towel rack)
2. During a breakfast it proved to be a challenge to sit at the clean table since there is only one waiter servicing the area
3. Orange Juice making machine that works and much better coffee
4. Good service in the restaurant (if you eat in the evenings at the hotel restaurant be sure that smell of your food will be across all corridors and do not expect too much from the service level especially in terms of speed)
5. Better quality pillows (existing are worn out and shapeless)

I need to say that for one or two nights I would always recommend this place (you would not notice any of the above) and for longer stay you might need something more than designed hotel with great room view (note: there is no restaurant or bar with the view in this hotel).

Room Tip: Make sure you have a room with a view!

I would recommend the Lanchid 19 to anyone visiting Budapest. We received a warm welcome on arrival and the staff remained friendly, helpfull and approachable throughout your stay. The hotel is modern and extremely clean. The location couldn't be better and the views are stunning. We ate breakfast there every day and, the selection was extensive, the hot food was always hot, the juice freshly sqeezed, the coffee freshly ground. We cannot praise this hotel highly enough.

Room Tip: Third floor up for the best views.
