Dear letitia w, First of all, thank you for choosing to stay at our Continental Hotel Budapest and for taking your precious time to share your sincere opinion. Needless to say that, all types of criticism are important for us, we are rating it as a chance to improve and perfect our services and hospitality. We genuinely care about our guests and are dedicated to serving them well, therefore I was disappointed to learn your words shared. The attitude you described is far from our high standard and guest-focused service, so please accept my deepest apology for the caused inconveniences. Let me assure you that we always welcome requests, individual wishes (be it a teabag or a double duvet for expamle) and we strive to fulfil them as much as possible. I definitely take the appropriate steps in order to avoid similar occurrences in the future. Last but not least, it is regrettable that you did not like our popular location, which is usually among the most appreciated factors. It is true that the area is full of lively nightlife but basically safe. I hope that your Budapest break was satisfactory and you managed to discover the beautiful sights of our capital. We would be honoured to have a second chance to regain your trust in our great hotel and show you how professional and friendly service we are capable to provide indeed! All my best, Zoltán Géher General Manager

I was told that my credit card details are required as a security deposit during my stay (which was already paid for). Upon checking out, I confirmed with the front desk that everything was okay. I was advised that the 500Euro hold on my card has been cancelled and I was given a receipt to “show” this. Got back to the U.K. to find I have actually been charged this amount. Have tried calling and emailing and no response!!! STAY AWAY!!

Stayed here for three nights. The staff are extremely helpful, from front desk to catering and cleaning staff make you feel welcome. The hotel rooms are very comfortable and the pool and sauna areas are well managed. Hotel is in a great location at the edge of the Jewish quarter and easily walkable to all attractions. First time to Budapest was a very happy one and will be staying at this hotel on our next visit.

I had a great stay in this hotel ! Welcoming stuff and room was great. Cleaning service was very helpful from the first day. Breakfast has everything, but as I'm a big fan of good coffee i would suggest to change for better coffee. I want to say big thank you to a man working at breakfast who made all my breakfast much better despite i had an injury and felt pain, he is supportive, full of energy, positive and loves his job ! He also motivate other stuff to do same. I agree with other reviews that fan in bathroom is too noisy but i figured out how to manage it))
