A friend of mine recommended this hotel after spending a couple of days working in Budapest.
I am generally a bit unsure of personnal recommendations as what suits one person may not be right for me.
However unsure of where to stay on a weekend break we took the chance and reserved a double room. On check in we were advised by a nice lady that we had been upgraded from the double atrium room to a double standard and though it did not have open views to the park this was a side view we were not dissappointed. The room was very clean, a nice flower in the bathroom and the room was also tidied before going to bed.
We booked room only as breakfast is not something we do generally a tea before out and about and we found that the hotel provided tea and coffee as part of the mini bar service.
The hotel is in a very good area of the city and was a good base for sightseeing.
Restaurants are a bit expensive but if you head of the main tourist streets you can find nice restaurants and good food.Service is a bit slower than at home but they are nice people.
For the hotel the staff were very nice and helped us plan our journey.
I would be very happy to recommend and thank you for the postcard.

Room Tip: Book a Double standard and ask for park view

I don't stay at 5 star hotels very often, but now and then, me and my girlfriend like to "pamper" ourselves with a nice hotel on one of our yearly weekend trips. We booked a deluxe room and were looking forward to some luxury after reading the description of the room and the good reviews. But...

First of all we didnt get the room we ordered, we ordered a deluxe room and got a regular one. They even tried to tell us we got a deluxe room, but clearly we didn't because alot of things were missing from the room according to the description from their web page (only shower, no bath, no view etc.). When I pointed this out to the staff/manager all we got was an "I'm sorry".
But of course they charged us the price of a deluxe room.
At no point were we offered some kind of compensation for our "loss".

Breakfast was ok, the spa was ok, and the staff was nice (exept for the room mixup)

But as I said before, we have been to a couple of 5 star hotels before and even though it's expensive you usually leave the hotel with a feeling of "it was worth it".
I did NOT get this feeling at all when I left this hotel, I actually felt like I was ripped off.

So if you want the luxury feeling of a 5 star hotel, I cant say you will get that at Iberostar.

Maybe you are more lucky and get the room you order but do you really want to leave that to chance when you're spending a couple of hundred Euro a night?

So to sum my experience up in one word: DISSAPOINTMENT.

After a very long walk, we craved a healthy breakfast. We hoped for fresh fruit, but had difficulty finding anywhere servicing it on a Sunday morning. Then like a beacon in the night, we saw the starfish of our old friend, the Iberostar starfish...in Budapest.

They laughed as we asked about fresh fruit, and juice. "...but of course." Beyond their wonderful buffet, their chef created a special fruit platter for us. Everything else served was also wonderful.

I stayed 2 nights in this luxurious and beautiful hotel - a brilliant quiet location in Pest. The room which was only on the first floor was stunning with very high ceiling beautiful bed and great bathroom. The breakfast was good and calm and service was friendly and efficient. I had to move to Le Meridien after and although satisfactory the Iberostar was by far my favourite.

A new hotel with a perfect location in the city center.
This new hotel allow to you to explore the city center by foot, with all the attractions very close.
My wife and I decided to choose a nice hotel for our 10 years anniversary and chose iberostar. The staff was amazing, very kindly and professional. The rooms are new, with a fashion look and a good bathroom that always is important. We really enjoy and recommend.

Room Tip: Reserve your room on the 5th floor with a view to the square

What a location, peaceful just what we needed . We chose this hotel last minute and we were not dissapointed. Not the typical high price views of the Danube and for that got a spectacular view of Liberty square, nearly all traffic free which meant a relaxing end to a busy week.The hotel is within walking distance of major tourist attractions but also perfect for the business traveller as my final appointment of the week was within two minutes walk.
Rooms larger than expected for a city hotel, modern but also in keeping with the buiding, great bath and perfect shower. As for the bed i need this at home what a sleep. This is the type of bed to lie in on a Sunday morning with breakfast in bed and a sunday newspaper. I would definatly recommend this hotel.
Staff are also very pleasant and some are still being trained but very willing to help.
Keep it up we will return and i will recommend to all friends and partners.

Room Tip: Upgrade and get a park view. We were also showed a junior suite, I will book this for a weekend and...

After a long trip through Europe only staying in hostels, my husband and I decided to spoil ourselves and stay in a nice hotel in our last stop at Budapest. We couldn't have asked for a better last night! The hotel is situated on a plaza, complete with gorgeous old buildings and fountains. The staff at the concierge was fabulous, telling us what we should see in our short 24-hour visit. While waiting to check in, we were even brought freshly squeezed orange juice. When we arrived at our room, we were shocked at the modern interior, the floor to ceiling windows, HUGE bathtub, waterfall shower, and comfy, cozy bed. The spa was also fantastic, complete with saunas, steam rooms, and a jacuzzi. The hotel is situated just steps from the Parliament, walking distance from the basilica, near a handful of great restaurants, and we were also easily able to walk to the old town of Buda. Wonderful city, wonderful hotel, and wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend and when we come back to Budapest, we will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the plaza.
