The location is truly exceptional, boasting breathtaking views. Finding accommodations spacious enough for four can be challenging, but this place exceeded expectations with its generously sized beds and ample room for luggage. Despite initial concerns about the hotel's age, the stunning view from our room more than made up for any shortcomings. Additionally, the breakfast buffet was exceptional!

Hotel's Favorite
I only had one night in Budapest and of course had to stay at this incredible property. Once again was greeted by Istvan at the door and my IHG Platinum status was recognized at check-in. Beautiful King Deluxe room with a sofa to sit and enjoy the incredible views of the river which at night are even more brilliant. I had been travelling constantly since I arrived in Vienna two nights before and enjoyed a short nap on the comfortable bed and then a short workout in the well-equipped fitness center. A friend met me at the hotel and we had a short walk to St. Stephen's Basilica to have dinner at a restaurant in the square. The next morning had a short walk by the river and bought some souvenirs and then took a Bolt for the short ride to Keleti train station. I will look forward to returning next year for another visit, hopefully for more than one night! Thanks to General Manager Martin Schoenrock and his excellent staff for a wonderful stay!

I am writing to express my frustration during my recent stay at the Intercontinental hotel Budapest, Hungary. While I had high hopes for a comfortable and enjoyable experience, I must express my extreme disappointment with several aspects of my visit. As a frequent traveller who values high quality accommodation and service my experience fell far below expectations. Choosing to book this hotel, was the worst decision I have made in the past 10 years of staying with the IHG brand worldwide. In the past 12 months alone, I’ve stayed 228 nights with your brand. Despite booking a reservation well in advance, and prior arrangements, the check-in process was slow, tiring, inefficient and disorganised, leading to unnecessary delays and frustration. From the moment I arrived, it was evident that the level of service did not meet the standard I have come to expect from the intercontinental brand. Firstly, upon arrival, I was greeted with a luck of warmth and professionalism from Mr. Marten Schoenrock, the hotel general manager. upon entering the room, I was dismayed to find out that the condition of the tiny room, left much to be desired. Not only it was so tiny, the furnishings, appeared tired, worn outdated, and in need of refurbishment. The overall atmosphere was far from the promised standard of comfort and luxury. It impacted my ability to relax and unwind.

Dear Guest, I hope this finds you well. Reading your message and all the negative experiences during your recent stay with us truly surprised me. Especially considering our personal interactions upon your arrival and before your departure, where you complimented on our services and in particular my friendliness. It is disheartening to learn of such a stark contrast between the feedback given directly and the subsequent written complaint, which we will of course discuss with all departments and colleagues involved. Yours sincerely, Marten Schoenrock General Manager

We stayed three nights and we LOVED this hotel. The service was outstanding and the location was superb – very central for everything that we wanted to get to and we were fortunate to be upgraded to a river view room, which was spectacular – the view was like a moving postcard – absolutely beautiful. We hope to return to Budapest and we’d definitely choose this hotel again and we’d pay extra for a room with a view. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and although the shower was over the bath (which isn’t our preference these days) the water was consistently hot and the pressure was excellent. We also appreciated the complimentary water and Nespresso coffee machine in the room. We ate in the Lebanese restaurant – just a mezze snack for lunch but it was delicious and we enjoyed several glasses of excellent local fizz in the bar overlooking the Danube.

Beautiful hotel! Room overlooked the Danube River. Nice restaurant for breakfast and dinner. This was the pre trip hotel for our River cruise. Highly recommend-especially at Christmas time. The Budapest markets were wonderful. We felt very safe walking around the area.

During my recent stay at the exquisite InterContinental Hotel in Budapest, I had the pleasure of experiencing impeccable service, notably from the esteemed concierge, Gabor. From the moment I stepped into the lobby, Gabor's professionalism and dedication were immediately apparent. His extensive knowledge of Budapest's attractions and his willingness to assist with any request made my stay truly exceptional. Whether arranging transportation, recommending local eateries, or organizing sightseeing tours, Gabor's commitment to ensuring guest satisfaction was unparalleled. Moreover, Gabor's warmth and hospitality added a personal touch to my experience, making me feel welcome and valued throughout my stay. His passion for his role as a concierge was evident in every interaction, and his dedication to providing exceptional service truly set the InterContinental apart.

First time at this IC and we had a lovely 3 night stay. The staff were lovely though I would say the breakfast team need a bit more pro activity as I personally found getting coffee difficult. Aside from this no issues. My room had a view and was a classic river view. This was a one category upgrade for a Diamond Ambassador. I was staying on points, which I bought specifically for this stay, and having read other reviews and travel blogs felt the upgrade was the lowest possible. I was offered a very good rate to upgrade to the club but declined. My wife and spent little time in the hotel so this would have been a waste. I liked the hotel, its location and staff and I would happily return. The rooms are a little dated and the classic bathroom is tiny but functional.

Lobby was busy when we arrived , before entering the hotel I was impressed by the view of the Danube and the general location and scenery by the hotel . Check in was relatively straightforward, I could hear a piano playing in the lobby / bar area contributing to a pleasant atmosphere. The room , although looking dated , was clean and fairly well equipped. A few plug sockets and only one USB ! , so make sure you have your adapter plug. I had a nice hot shower and was impressed by the non slip floor in the bath , the decent shower curtain kept the floor relatively dry. Good Wi-Fi signal, fairly good room sound proofing. Bed was soft and comfortable with nice pillows. Great hotel location and depending on your room you will have a fantastic view , my room was at the rear of the hotel , so no view of the Danube . Plenty of shops and restaurants very close to the hotel plus the local trams stop outside the hotel. Journey time to and from the international airport is about 35 minutes. Very nice hotel , friendly staff , rooms need upgrading. Great location

We have recently returned from a 4 night break staying at the Intercontinental Hotel. It was a special birthday occasion for my wife.and I cannot speak too highly of this hotel.I would almost go as far as to say the location is the best in Budapest - right on the river, looking up at the main sights. The hotel itself was excellent, with a very knowledgeable, polite and helpful staff. We booked a river view room (which we would recommend to anyone booking), and also paid for access to the Lounge (again, we would recommend anyone booking, as it is one of the best we have ever come across. Huge variety of drinks, and excellent food [hot and cold] served afternoon and evenings.) Budapest itself is a beautiful city, with many places to visit.We fully intend to return, probably in the summertime and will certainly be making the Intercontinental our base. As an aside, a big shout out to Budapest Airport. What a pleasure to be in a clean, efficient airport with many shops and amenities.
