My boyfriend and I went on our first holiday together here. We got a good deal on the hotel and it was so much better than we were expecting. The Hotel looked ok when we pulled up by taxi, which was easy to get from the airport and didn't take long, but once you got inside and through the huge revolving doors it took us by surprise. The staff were friendly and there was always someone there to help. We got our keys and went up to our room. The room was lovely, dark and stylish but very comfortable. The bed was huge, although the duvet was two single duvets but worked out well because it got quite hot anyway. The pillows weren't the best but I didn't see the pillow menu until the morning i was leaving so I would have changed them if I knew before. The bathroom was clean and had everything we needed . We loved the shower, powerful and easy to use. We didn't use it but the mini bar was well stocked and not too expensive. We could get room service if we wanted but we ate out every night and went down for breakfast every morning. The breakfast was actually one of my favourite parts of the hotel. So much choice and everything cooked perfectly. There was cooked breakfast, pancakes, porridge, croissants, fresh bread, fruit, yoghurt, cereal and so much more!! We went down for breakfast at 9.45 every morning and it was lovely and chilled. The bedroom was cleaned and tidied every day. We really did enjoy this hotel and would recommend it. We went to the top floor where there was a indoor pool and an outdoor pool which was soon to be ready to use. You could sit outside and as it was such lovely weather while we were there you could see the attraction because it was peaceful and relaxing up there. The wifi connection in our room was strong. The hotel is located near the main streets of Budapest and we found it very easy to find out way to any destination. Plenty of bars and restaurants near by. We almost felt like we looked out of place because it really was a lovely, posh hotel and we hadn't really experienced such good quality before. Everyone made us feel very welcome.

Ok the only negative was that the air con in our room didn't seem powerful enough to keep us cool through the night but we opened the window so we were happy enough with that. That was all everything else was great.

Room Tip: We went for the Queens size standard bedroom. Just great for couples.

We stayed 6 nights, our experience was very good. the room was small but convinient and very clean.The staff was very kind and helpfull always with a smile and a question of interest.The hotel is located in a main street 5 minutes far from the public transportation. The metro station is " Blaha Lujza" It's possible to go by foot straight all the way to the Danube and a lot of central sights. Breakfast was excellent and varied.
I dont remember the names of the staff but special thanks to nice Elionora and on the last day to the one that made the check out.

Stayed for 4 days and enjoyed every minute. The hotel is well located, just a short walk to many amenities. Good breakfast in the hotel and although we didn't eat there in the evening, there are plenty of good restaurants nearby. The staff were very friendly and helpful. As mentioned by another reviewer, the only problem that we encountered was with the WI-FI as it was very intermittent.
A small cab ride away, there is a fabulous spa which is well worth a visit & for those interested in culture, a short walk to the largest synagogue in Europe.

Will definitely visit this city again and would hope to be able to find a room in this hotel

I can. Not compare to other hotels in Budapest, though the Continental Zara is a very decent hotel. Clean rooms, great breakfast buffet, good spa amenities, great location, free wifi, friendly staff.
Two downsides - the service at the bar was poor (might have been a few bad days for the bar girl) and the rooms are rather small.

That being said, for this price I would vertainly return to this hotel.
