The hotel was great, the staff always went above and beyond to help in any way they could. Heated toilet seats are not to be underrated either! I would highly recommend this place when visiting Budapest.

My partner and I decided to do 3 nights in Budapest for our anniversary and so wanted to push the boat out a bit.

Aesthetically the hotel is really nice and plush. We stayed in a corner suite and although as everyone says the room is dark it adds to the ambience and is not that bad. The bed was comfy, the bathroom was great, with The White Company products and the bath tub was amazing .... really big!!!! We had a balcony room which looked out to Gellert Hill and the main road leading to the bridge. Some may complain about the noise from outside although once balcony windows and doors were shut we didn't hear a thing.

Breakfast was presented well with a buffet style for cold meats and cheese, fruit, cereal etc. We were also given a menu from which we could pick a cooked dish. The plate looked small when it come to you but the portion was the right size.

The hotel also has great amenities. Every evening after a day of exploring we used the spa facilities. We used the sauna, steam room, plunge pool and very small normal pool. They also offer extra services which we did not use as well as a few exercise machines.

The location is excellent, you are a stone throw away from everything but the transport is so easy to use to get about and see as much or as little of Budapest as you would like. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and hotel definitely helped.

We booked our room straight through the hotel via numerous phone calls and emails. I have to thank all members of staff you have excellent customer service but found they are willing to help as much as they can.

The Buddha-Bar Hotel is wonderful. A delight from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. The staff were friendly, helpful and informative and are willing to answer any questions. Our room was great and had bags of character, it was super clean and very comfortable. The food and drinks were brilliant as was the spa and basically every aspect of our stay! You must go!

This is a good quality hotel that is very well located. The service was very good, the breakfast was good, the accommodation/decor very good and interesting - and I know I am being tough here but this is what I expect from a 5* hotel.

So with all the hype about the Buddha-Bar experience I was expecting more. In some ways you could say that they do things too well, but for me it was too clinical and lacked a real soul. Basically it lacked that personal touch that large hotels tend struggle with when compared to smaller establishments. Maybe the staff just need to relax and smile a bit more which is probably down to the way they are managed.

In summary, a good quality hotel that has the potential to be a great one

This is a good hotel and is in a good location for exploring the city on foot. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for.
The decor is unusual, black and red, which can make it quite dark inside,not great if you are like me,not 21 any more, and need glasses and good light to read.
The staff were efficient and friendly.
Would I stay here again, YES.

Dear Brian,

Thank you very much for sparing the time to review your stay at the Buddha-Bar Hotel Budapest! Delighted to hear that you had a nice time with us and we appreciate your nice opinion. The Buddha-Bar concept is a special one indeed, based on lighting and sound sensation, dark colours dominate the interior to create the special atmosphere and this is someting that people fall in love with or dislike.

Do hope that you will soon return and in any case, we will be glad to provide you with some extra lamps for the perfect experience!

Stayed here this week. The hotel is great and the staff are very attentive. The hotels decor is stylish and contemporary.

The cocktail bar is a great place to unwind, whilst listening to Buddha Bar music.

The rooms are equipped with latest gadgets and have excellent AV equipment.

My only moan would be that the hotel should have invested more in the basics like effective air conditioning instead of some of the less needed things. Maintenance can up twice during our stay, however the temp never fell below 24.5C.

Hotel is located extremely close to the best attractions in Pest. The staff are informative and go out of their way to sort anything you need.

I stayed here last week with a friend and was very impressed with the hotel. Reception was excellent checking me in, the decor is great, and its well located. The place is spotless and quiet. Breakfast is very good, though a bit expensive for Budapest, and there are options nearby if you want a change. The restaurant is beautiful and the drinks and food were excellent. My only complaint about the room itself - there was no light over the desk, the room is a bit dark at night, so those of us who are older have a hard time with working at the desk. The bathroom was amazing with a toilet that had multiple functions and nice shower. It is a bit hard to find places to put your things in the bathroom with no shelves or counter space really. My only other comment (and why i cant give it excellent rating) is that the door staff was rude to my cousin when she dropped me off after dinner one night - tried to tell us she could not stop in front of the hotel if we were not checking in. we were already staying there, so where would they like me to be dropped off besides the front door???? i know there was construction in that area, but really? The man refused to give my cousin his name so she could speak to his supervisor.
