“A beautiful renovation of a historic building”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We spend three days in Budapest, staying at the Palazzo Zichy hotel. Beautifully decorated room, excellent buffet breakfast, very helpful staff and very good location near public transportation. Budapest exceeded our expectations, beautiful sites, great 2 hour cruise on the Danube and excellent hungarian restaurants.

This was our first stay in Budapest and we could not have picked a better hotel. Every member of staff goes out of their way to be helpful and accomodating. The rooms are spotless, the beds comfortable and there is more than enough choice at breakfast to please even the fussiest of eaters. The hotel allows guests to stay until 12 noon before checking out and then provide a secure room to deposit luggage until departure, free of charge. This hotel ticked all the right boxes for a great stay in Budapest.

Room Tip: Higher floors are non smoking.

My husband and I stayed at the Palazzo Zichy in November last year.

We decided to spend our 1st wedding anniversary at the hotel. The hotel looked like a luxurious boutique hotel, in an excellent location, and modern too.

From the moment we stepped through the elegant entrance, in to what was originally an Italian Palazzo, we knew that we had made an excellent choice.

The reception, was bright, clean, airy, and the staff could not have been more helpful.

I had emailed in advance that it was our Wedding Anniversary, and had had numerous emails back and forth, as I wanted to arrange a little something extra for our room, and ordered the bottle of wine etc. The reception staff were incredibly diplomatic, and did not mention anything to my husband when we checked in, as he had paid for the accommodation, and I had booked the extra, and paid in advance.

Nothing was too much trouble.

We were shown to our room, which was a gorgeous suite, overlooking the street and the church. It was incredibly romantic. The temperature was minus 4 outside, but inside, the room was nice and toasty, and had all the amenities required.

We walked in to our room, on the right hand side was our fabulous bathroom, which was a wet room, with a wonderful shower, lots of power, and lots of hot water. A gorgeous sink, with luxurious toiletries, a bidet and a toilet.

Bathrobes were included also.

As you came out of the bathroom, in front of you was a huge unit, which housed a double wardrobe, drawers, ironing board, safe etc etc etc.

Behind the Wardrobes was our bed. Which was incredibly comfy.

there was a mini bar, which we often kept sandwiches and things in.

Two HUGE windows with wonderful views.

A desk, which had the gorgeous bottle of fizz, and a wonderful little personal note, saying welcome, and congratulations on our honeymoon.

Once we had settled in to our room, we explored the hotel, there was a lovely spa area in the basement of the hotel. Just next to the restaurant where the breakfast was served.

There was a bar area in the lobby, which served complimentary tea and coffee and soft drinks and nibbles.

A wonderful mezzanine computer area.

Gorgeous gorgeous architecture.

Wonderful selection for breakfast, hot food, cold food, fruit, cereals, lots of bread and pastries.

It was JUST incredible.

The hotel was convenient for the main shopping area, which was just a short walk away, and not far from the wonderful Christmas Market.

We spent most of our time exploring on foot, and were grateful for the little dips in to cafe's for a little defrost and a nice hot drink.

The reception staff helped us to book an afternoon at one of the baths, which was JUST amazing, and should definitely be done.

We could not fault our stay at the wonderful hotel, which was so clean and immaculate, and so friendly. We would have absolutely no hesitation in staying there again, and we hope to return soon.

The best thing was the price, which was incredibly reasonable.

All in all, a wonderful experience from start to finish, with easy transport links.

Thank you!

Room Tip: upgrade to a suite, it's worth every penny.

Have just come back from a 5 day stay in this excellent hotel. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, the room was spacious and the bed very very comfortable. Breakfast was very good. A very quiet position but easy walking distance to public transport. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Reception staff were exceptionally helpful in helping me trying to trace an ancestor. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Budapest, I couldn't fault it.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Palazzo Zichy for our honeymoon and could not believe we were staying at such a beautiful hotel for such a reasonable price. The receptionists were always friendly and helpful, requests were always quickly handled and we even received a note of apology for the inconvenience when one of our lights didn't work, which is a nice touch. I would suggest that you request a softer pillow when you arrive because the pillows are quite hard, I couldn't sleep properly the first night, but at least you have the option of asking for other kinds of pillows. I liked the storage room in the hotel room where you could put all your luggage and clothes, and there's heating in the bathroom so you can keep cosy after coming out of the shower. The hotel is also walking distance to the Jewish Quarter where all the cool bars are. I highly recommend this hotel!

Part of our honeymoon road-trip we spent one night at Palazzo Zichy.
It is such a lovely, modern hotel with lovely design touches.
The room was clean and the shower was awesome.
The location is good , not central but not far from the city centre. If you need to take a taxi it doesn't cost much.
The breakfast was delicious.
It was our favourite hotel out of six that we stayed in throughout Europe.
Would recommend and would definitely return.
