“Buda is better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

The Lanchid 19 was a great choice for a weekend in Busapest, it's located on the right side of the river. I like Buda better than Pest which is more touristy. Also the surroundings of the hotel offer great clubbing. The hotel staff is friendly and make the extra step to get you comfortable. The rooms are not too big but quirky, modern and have a design feel and offer great views of the city. The bathroom could do with a shower only, the big bathtub is not necessary and when you shower water goes everywhere, there are no curtains or screens. Breakfast offers a good choice, almost german and the best is price/quality relation; excellent. When you go rent a bike, great way of discovering this beautiful city.

Room Tip: River view and as high as possible

Dear Sir,

I am very glad to read you highlighted that the Buda side was better than Pest. Lanchid 19 hotel definitely agrees. If someone comes to take a rest of the busy everyday life, Buda is definitely a place to relax. Major attractions of the city are right in the neighbourhood or our hotel, for example you can reach the Royal Palace in 5 minutes on foot.

Thank you for your splendid comments concerning our staff, brekafast and design.

I hope you will return to us.

Best regards,

Fantastic views over the Danube to begin with, and thoughtful attentive staff at all times. Very comfortable room with all amenities and a sparkling shower and bathroom. Excellent food, good service and certainly not the most expensive in the city! A short walk across the famous chain bridge to landmarks such as the Hungarian Academy and the shopping streets and so many restaurants and bars leaves you spoiled for choice. Another short walk, a cliff railway and there is the magnificent castle. I cannot think of any hotel in a more beautiful and convenient location.

Room Tip: A river view is stunning if you can get one (though be prepared for a main road between you and the...

Dear Sir,

thank you very much for your wonderful review. Our location and the view from our rooms are definitely one of our big advantages. Most famous sites are within walking distance from Lanchid 19 hotel either on the Buda or on the Pest side of the city.

I hope you liked Budapest and will come back.

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
