I spent 2 nights at the Continental Zara hotel while on my business trip to Budapest.I attended an event at another hotel and wanted to find accommodation that is not too pricey, but also decent and close to the main venue. After looking the Trip Advisor, my selection was the Continental Zara, close enough and a 4-star hotel with very affordable rate. I booked bed and breakfast. We had the car, and parked it in the hotel garage, while the check-in was very smooth and fast. The rooms are very cozy, with all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. After a long trip, what I needed was to relax in the wellness. First I used the fitness, pretty good selection of machines (2 treadmills, 1 stepper and two stationary bikes-these are for the cardio, and the rest are the machines typical for the gym). Very clean, water provided, paper tissues and towels). The wellness upstairs consists of several saunas, Jacuzzi and a small swimming pool. Again, very clean and just the proper size for an effective relaxation after a business trip. The cost for fitness and sauna is 6 EUR.
The buffet breakfast is served from 7 AM, and indeed it represents very good quality selection of continental breakfast, Hungarian cheeses, hard cheese, salami, sausages, healthy choices, eggs prepared in a variety of ways, greenery. Selection of bread and buns, and the yogurt which was available as fruit yogurt and natur- a must, must try! Selection of fresh fruit, but what I really liked - the orange juice squeezer, so every morning I started with the fresh orange juice.
Also, coffee at the coffee machine is superb, which is most often not the case, and I'd rather skip that part, and have my coffee elsewhere, but at the Continental Zara the coffee is just great.
Since I was only for two nights, and as I did not really have time to be longer at the property, I can only say that the service, cleanliness, communication with the staff was very good. The check-out smooth and easy. If I happen to go soon again, I will definitely come back to the Continental Zara.
