On a recent visit to Budapest we stayed here for our wedding anniversary we were very impressed with the Exceptional service and the Attention to detail .From arrival at the hotel every member of staff was professional and friendly.We received a bottle of champagne which was a wonderful gesture. I highly recommend booking a Danube view room we enjoyed our stay and will definitely return with friends shortly.Thank you to the team Regards Elaine o Connor
The rooms at the Intercontinental are nice but nothing extraordinary. What makes this place stand out is the friendly, helpful staff, the large, well equipped and well ventilated gym, the nice pool that’s actually big enough to let you do decent laps, the spacious sauna (for 5) and the clean and spacious lockers. Not to mention the lovely breakfast buffet with omelettes made to your liking 🤩
This was the hotel for our extended stay in Budapest after our Viking Rhine Tour. Rooms were very spacious and very clean. Location was vey convenient for walking to many sites.Breakfasts we American and European style. Many of our tours started her. We were close to a tram stop.We could feel the old world style.
The hotel is looking tired and in need of some TLC. Decor is drab mostly yellowing cream coloured. The bathroom is dated with a over bath shower and plastic shower curtain. Despite being a non smoking room, it smelled strongly of cigarettes. Breakfast was a nightmare with not enough tables to seat the amount of guests in the hotel. At one point we were asked to sit outside in the rain! On the plus side the hotel restaurant serving amazing Lebonesse food was excellent.
The Low Down on The Intercontinental Hotel Budapest. My wife and I stayed at the Intercontinental from the 3rd – 10th September in a Premium King with Sofa and River View for €2,382.74. Although this included a fine breakfast it was not cheap, but due to the location we never stay anywhere else. The Intercontinental benefits from a riverside location with the best views in the city. From our bedroom we could see The Castle, Fisherman’s Bastion and the magnificent Szechenyi Bridge, as well as the boats going up and down the Danube. This is why we always stay in this hotel which although boasts 5 star rating is not deserving of more than 4 at best. First the Good. The location as mentioned above. The bed was incredible, huge and ever so comfortable. Swimming Pool and Spa ( we never used ) The breakfast was very good ( till the last day) Now the Bad The housekeeping was terrible. We noticed a clipped nail on arrival and it was still there on our departure. Long black hairs in the bathroom ( not ours) for the duration of our stay. Tea bags were not replaced. Soap dish not cleaned. The bathroom looked tired with some cracked tiles. On the last day there was an influx of people queuing for breakfast and when finally getting to the self service buffet both the trays for fried and scrambled eggs were empty. I had to tell the servers to replenish them and stand around waiting for them to do so. They should be trained to keep an eye on how items are depleted and replesh when half full. Finally, an annoying loud dog was allowed into the indoor dining room, which I believe is not allowed by law. Conclusion. Notwithstanding all the above, due to the location and views ( river view rooms only) there is no other hotel I would stay at. Try it you will thank me. Roby 070…
This luxury property is right on the banks of the Danube and offers a gorgeous view of the ancient city. The hotel is situated near other sites and makes walking very easy to and from restaurants, tourist sites, and walking paths. The hotel restaurants are also quite good.
Thank you for a fantastic stay to all the staff. Beautifully situated hotel with all we were after either within walking or a tram ride away. It was like stepping back in time to when hotels were an experience in themselves. Once again, thank you to the staff.
First the location is excellent. The non river facing rooms can be avoided as it’s a bit cramped without any view. Few staff especially the bellboys were arrogant and had the audacity to demand a six euro per bag charged to take the luggage to our rooms for a service which ought to be free and folios at our discretion. It is only when the receptionist intervened that they loaded the luggage for our rooms. The check in process also was not very friendly and I felt they were showing an unwarranted attitude. Apart from this the breakfast spread is good and the location is superb.
This hotel sits on the banks of the Danube we had a room overlooking the River. The view was spectacular. Everything was lovely except the bathroom. There was mold on the caulking, and the wooden vanity was chipped. The staff was great and helped us get a taxi when we were stranded on the USA side.
We were very lucky to have a view of Buda Palace every morning. The room was more than spacious enough, with a massive bed. The bathroom was clean and the shower was better than most. They actually supplied a hairdryer with some 'oomph' as well - it takes me ages to dry my hair with most hotel hairdryers. Only problem we had was trying to work out how to use the coffe machine but, thankfully, they also supplied a small kettle. Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially as I was daft enough to leave my hat and camera in the bar when I received some bad news on my phone. Didn't notice until the next morning. Went flying down to reception and within 5 minutes both had been returned to me. Buffet breakfast is great with a good mixture of hot and cold foods - they just need to rearrange the area where you do your toast as it is very narrow there and you risk getting bumped into and touching the toaster. I wish I had taken the time to get the name of the waiter who served us several times with lunchtime & evening drinks as he made us laugh - especially when trying to chase a pidgeon out from under the tables in the outside seating area.…
