Very very very polite and helpful staff. Beautiful restaurant under the cupola. Delucious meals. Spacy room with big bathroom, also well equipped. In the middle of the pandemic times the hotel gave the feeling of safety.

We spent 4 nights at the hotel in mid February 2020, just prior to Covid-19 starting to cause havoc around the world. The hotel is centrally located on Deak square, right next to a major Metro hub. We booked a Club room using 62K points a night, but as no Club rooms were available, we received a Deluxe room with a view and Club benefits – room 724. Check in was quick and we were able to check in as early as 11:15AM. We were offered an upgrade to a suite for an exuberant sum, which we declined. Our room was a very spacious corner connecting room on the 7th floor with views to the Budapest Eye and the Basilica. It featured 2 queen beds, a large TV (with very few decent channels), a work desk and chair, a sofa and a coffee table, a minibar, a safe and some fine lighting elements. The bathroom was large with a tub, toilet, shower (with a rather weak water pressure), sink and Asprey amenities (the Purple Water series). Unfortunately, after the 1st night, the bathroom started smelling of sewage and urine, and despite reporting this, it was not resolved throughout our stay. Housekeeping was pretty average with sheet not being replaced (despite asking for them to be replaced), missing amenities we had to repeatedly ask for, and a torn towel and sheet. The shaking from the Metro were felt in the room, as was the noise. There was zero isolation from the street noise (and Deak square is VERY noisy throughout the day and night and lorries constantly beep when unloading goods at the hotel’s side), zero isolation from the connecting room (which felt VERY embarrassing at times…) and no decent light-proofing at all. The hotel featured a nice gym and a beautiful small pool with a tiny hot tub, which was open until 10PM. The pool was too cold for comfort (at 28 degrees) and the hot tub was only 36 degrees. There were barely any loungers next to the pool, which means the place was packed when 10 people were there. The Club lounge is located on the 8th floor and is open from the early morning until 10PM. It features an all day hot and cold drinks and some nibbles. Breakfast was VERY poor with very little to choose from (we were not given the option to have breakfast at the downstairs restaurant). Brunch included soup, sandwiches and salads. Afternoon tea time featured some pastries and sweets. Dinner was a small buffet with several hot and cold choices to choose from. Desserts were rather average generic desserts with nothing authentic nor Hungarian. Unfortunately, the hotel’s policy is to allow children at the lounge at all times, which totally destroys the atmosphere, especially in the late evening (unless your idea of fun is screaming children running all over the place and their parents ignoring them). The attendants at the lounge, however, were charming, and even offered us 2 bars of chocolate upon checking out. Bottom line – while this is a good hotel, we expected much, much more from a Ritz Carlton, but it seems the hotel has somehow maintained the level of Le Méridien (which it was until Ritz Carlton took over).

Our family stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Budapest in August 2019 during our summer vacation. We had chosen this hotel to stay at for the second half of our stay in Budapest. The hotel is as central as they come, with major attractions just stone's throw away. The main metro hub is also on the doorstep. Right off the bat, what was peculiar, and what I have not found at other Ritz Properties before was that a few of the staff at the reception desk while checking in were on the border of being rude. (that was never repeated, and may be they were just having an off day that day)This was a turn off!! The other staff, especially the dedicated concierge and the housing staff was very good. Housed in an attractive 19th-century building in the city center, the hotel has elegant and sophisticated common areas and guest rooms. We were boarded in two Palace Suites, and they were comfortable and spacious, and everything that could be expected at a Ritz Carlton (we just felt that the mattress were a little too soft!) The panoramic views and access to one's own French balcony were great. The Club Lounge access, as always, was a welcome perk, and it did not disappoint. Children loved to use the Club Lounge, and enjoy like they always do the pâtisseries and various savory snacks. The Kupola Lounge is situated beneath the iconic stained glass cupola which is the ideal place for a rich breakfast, a light lunch or an afternoon tea. The breakfast buffet was quite good. Depending on where in the hotel one is boarding, one can hear the noise of the trains at times. Though in our rooms we had no such issues. Overall a good experience!

We were very happy with our stay here and would happily go back. The rooms were very nice, and large. The hotel is in a great location, with the metro and bus lines useful for getting to key sightseeing activities both right outside. The staff were very good, including the concierges, who helped us with a number of good recommendations and got us in to a couple of places we couldn't get in to ourselves.

A 3 night trip for our 25th wedding anniversary. A great welcome and a lovely surprise of balloons and red rose petals in a heart on the bed. Celebration cake and handwritten card in the room as well. Throughout our stay the staff could not have been more attentive or kind. Delicious breakfasts. Great service, a great hotel and a fantastic location. A really great break in a lovely city. Thanks
