“Great weekend break”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Fabulous location on the banks of the Danube. Very convenient for sightseeing and some really good eateries.
Try a walking tour of both Budapest and Pest to get the most of a short break. Don't be put off by festivals, join in!

Dear JRC1947,
thank you very much for placing your review. I am very happy that you note taking a great weekend at a fabulous location in our hotel enjoying even festival experience. True, that Budapest Spring Festival offers a most colorful selection of cultural events even compared to previous years. I hope to welcome you back again in the near future.
Best regards,

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights 14/3/14 to 17/3/14 with BA holidays. We paid extra for a river view and was well worth the extra cost with fantastic views from the 9th floor. Hotel is central and breakfast was very good with a vast selection. Staff were very helpful, happy and obliging. Only down side is very expensive bar prices.

Room Tip: Order a high floor with river view

The hotel was fabulous! The room was big, comfortable, quiet and very clean. We asked (and payed extra) for a room with a river view, and it was worth it! The view is fantastic both in the morning, at the sunset and at night.
But the highlight is the breakfast. We never had such a rich breakfast in Europe... There is something for every one and every taste.
The location is great - 4 minutes from a metro station, (or 10 minutes walk from Deak metro station, which connects the 3 main lines of the metro), 2 minutes walk from the Chain Bridge.
My wife had a massage in the hotel's spa and was quite pleased with it.

Room Tip: Do not hasitate - take a river view room, and a breakfast.

Stayed for 4 night's from 9/3/14 to 13/3/14. Perfect time of year to visit, weather is getting better & Tourist attraction's are quiet. I was traveling with a female friend & we felt very safe walking about at night. We walked everywhere and the City is easy to Navigate. You can see all the main spot's from the Hotel. Beautiful City, clean and very friendly with fantastic local food. Market hall is a must, we also went to New York Cafe and Holocaust Museum .

I emailed the Hotel a week before we arrived to Explain we were visiting for my friend's 30th and would it be possible to have a river view. I never received a reply and we were given a small (very clean) room at the back of Hotel. I wasn't disappointed though as the Hotel is amazing, great Breakfast and most attentive dining room staff i have experienced. we used the Bar several time's they always remembered us and were keen to chat, tell us about local places, and ask how we were enjoying our stay.

On our second morning we were woken at 7am by the workmen outside which we felt was a bit early to start, Hotel wasn't full so we asked if we could move maybe higher up. It was no problem and by the time Breakfast was eaten our new room was ready. We were told we were going further along on the same floor which was ok as they were working on the other corner, however when we received our Key we were 1 floor up, in a family room looking onto Castle Hill. Cant thank every member of staff enough for there care and attention.
Fab to have the pool open late at night to so you can unwind after a Busy day.Had such a good experience i have already booked to go back for 4 nights on the 30th Nov with my Husband and Parent's to see the Xmas Market's.

This is the best location you will get, for aces to Tour Buses ,Boat's e.c.t and Vaci St for night life, food and shopping. We looked at a few Hotel's but we made the best decision. Didn't have time to try the Bath's but will go next time.

Room Tip: If you have a river View , one of the higher floor's is best there are 9 and we had a Fantastic...

Although this hotel is a little bit old now it still meets the standards you would expect from an Intercon. The service is exceptional and it has the perfect location on the banks of the river. If you are lucky enough to get a room overlooking the river then the views are stunning. The rooms are a little small, and as an IHG Platinum holder I got an upgrade and it was still pretty small. However for one or two nights then this is just a small niggle. The gym is adequately equipped too.

Room Tip: River side is better.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Currently the entrance is nearing completion and when it is done your arrival will be in style again and the promenade along the river will be opened. The outside porter was very attentive as the taxi had to pull up away from the makeshift entrance and park next to contsruction. Check is was breezy and efficient (no club lounge offer, which surprised us). Great room with wonderful view. Yes, the bathroom is much smaller than most other Intercontinentals, but clean and everything you need is there. Great beds and proper, functioning AC. No extra's in the room (you get used to extras as an ambassador), but room service was speedy and well organized. All staff here are friendly and well trained to assit you in whatever you need. Would go again, and people, do not underestimate the Location.....
