Stayed here 31st May 2013 for 3 nights over the weekend with a group of 12 friends for a stag do. The hotel is located right next to the city centre and a lot of the shops. Straight away from arriving at the hotel, the staff were very helpful and efficient. They answered any questions we had and knew the city like the back of their hand. We ended up with many annotated maps which they provided us with, showing directions to wherever we wanted, speaking very good English.
The rooms were perfect, clean and very classy. One of our group had been given a double instead of a twin room by accident which they sorted straight away. The beds were very comfortable and the room had a safe which we used. The rooms were cleaned and towels were changed and replaced every day. The shower was impressive too.
Included in our deal was the use of the spa, which came in very handy for the mornings after a long night. It was surprisingly always empty yet was maintained very well and extremely clean once again.
One place I will recommend is Szimpla Kert bar, about a 2 minute walk from the Zara hotel. This is one of the oldest ruin bars in Budapest, complete with many bars, good food, cheap drinks, excellent service and safe security. It is by far the most interesting bar I've ever been to and all the lads loved it. Definitely recommend it to anyone.
The trip was a huge success and the hotel was loved by everyone. Although it is a very classy hotel, as long as you behave yourselves then this is perfect. I can't recommend the hotel highly enough, I will definitely be returning to the Zara when I come back to Budapest. Thanks for all the help!
