Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Palazzo Zichy and I can only praise the staff for a warm and friendly welcome which extended throughout our stay. The rooms are spacious and modern with everything that one would need for a short break. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they recommended some excellent local bars and sightseeing tips.
A bowl of fruit awaited us upon our arrival and there is a plentiful supply of hot drinks and water in the bar area till 5pm. the breakfast is more than sufficient and we did not experience any waiting to be seated. The bar staff are so friendly and informative and take a bit of time to get to know their guests.We were fortunate enough to be in Budapest during a particularly warm period at the end of april and the air conditioning in the room worked a dream.
There are a number of good bars and eateries close by the hotel with town only a 10 minute walk.
I would recommend buying a 2 day hop on hop off bus ticket when you arrive as there is a stop 5 minutes from the hotel and from this you can get to any part of the city, the ticket price includes two bus routes and a boat trip along the danube. We got off at the Island in the middle of the Danube and hired an electric car, there is a outdoor swimming complex which can hold 22,000 people and has flumes etc which would be ideal if visiting with children.
All in all a great trip and we hope to return in the near future but we will stay at the palazzo Zichy.
