“As Good As It Gets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

I really loved this hotel. It is elegant and updated in an old beautiful building. Location is great
And the staff are all so friendly and helpful. The breakfast is absolutely delicious and even includes
A mimosa if you want one. It is also nice that there are complementary beverages in the lobby until
5:00 pm. The dinner menu is also good if you are too tired to go out. Overall, we could not have been happier. Thank you for a great time in Budapest.

Room Tip: Request room away from elevator.

Very comfortable room, staff very friendly and helpful and had suggestions of things to see in our 2 day stay. Organised umbrellas when weather looked threatening.
Hotel was a short walk from hop-on hop-off bus and from many attractions like the museum and markets. We even found that the famous "New York Café" was an easy 15 minute walk away.
Would highly recommend and would stay there again.
WiFi is free and also had business centre which made checking work e-Mails easier.
Day lounge for snacks and soft drinks an extra feature if you wanted a quick refreshment between walks.

Palazzo Zichy was a marvelous find, on a little square, next to a beautiful old church, in walking distance to everything. Room was spacious, breakfast spread amazing. All staff very friendly and helpful. We asked for massages and were provided an appointment that day. Free wifi.
Staff gave excellent directions and maps to attractions, with both walking and tram directions. Would stay here again in a heart beat.

Very easy to get to the hotel even with lots of luggage, just around 5 minutes walk. The reception staff is very kind to upgrade my room to a bigger one. The room is spacious, super clean and tidy. They offer free coffee, water and peanuts in the lobby in the daytime. This gives a very relax and comfortable area for chat and make travel plans for the day. Even though there are lots of guests asking for information in the reception desk, you never need to wait for long. Some staff from the back office, even the bartender, will step forward to help. The reception staff are very helpful and provide lots of information, such as restaurant, transportation, for sure you can get the best. Overall, the hotel makes my stay in Budapest a wonderful and enjoyable one. I highly recommend this hotel and hope to come back again.

Overall, the stay was absolutely amazing. We were greeted in a warm and friendly manner, the room was gorgeous, the bathroom felt like it belonged in a palace. The few times that we needed help/guidance from staff, they were more helpful. When we checked out at noon then headed to the Baths, they lent us towels for the day. It was truly exception and such a great value. Breakfast was good and it was at most about 15 minute walk from anything. There were restaurants only about a 5 minute walk away.

We have just come back from 3 nights at the Palazzo Zichy. We booked based on Tripadvisor ratings and we were not disappointed. The hotel was within 5 minutes walk from the Metro but in a quiet square. The reception staff were helpful and welcoming. Room was good, functional city hotel but not small. Free wi-fi in the rooms and all parts of the hotel was an added bonus.

Breakfast was very good, a wide selection of hot and continental, fruit, selection of pastries and sparkling wine on our second day and smoked salmon on the third. Also free tea, coffee and mineral water during the day in the bar.

Near a number of transport links (metro, hop on hop off bus, tram and bus hubs) and within walking distance of many of the main squares and attractions.

Overall the hotel is fantastic value given the small touches,helpful staff and the great location. Would definitely stay again.
