Excellent position on Vaci Utca. Room and facilities excellent. Spacious room and ensuite. Very comfortable large bed. Quality toiletries. Breakfast selections were extensive and well presented. What made this hotel special is the staff. Reception were efficient welcoming and polite. Bar staff were just lovely, especially the female staff. Very special mention for breakfast receptionist, Monika. Her friendly greeting made having breakfast each morning a pleasure. Would highly recommend this hotel.

What a disappointment this hotel was. Despite the outstanding location, the hotel smelled old and like smoke. It didn't feel clean and the rooms were dark. I think the location drives the popularity and the price point. I am certain there are better finds in this great city.

I haven't stayed in a place as awful as this for a very long time. Never again!

First they gave me a room with two single beds, I called reception right away but they had nothing available and promised they would give me a room with king-sized bed the next day. The room they gave me the next day (308) had a small double bed and the matrass was very uncomfortable. The carpets in both rooms I stayed in were very dirty and there was also a thick layer of dust on the bedside lamp. The bathrooms are very small and smell pretty bad, besides this the shower head sprays water everywhere besides on you. Our group had booked 5 rooms and all my colleagues had the same problem.

This is probably one of the worst places to stay in Budapest. Unfortunately the better hotels were already fully booked during the busy Christmas period so this hotel was one of the few available options.

location is awesome, but not a direct view of the river. rooms are basic for the cost, better rooms available at similar cost in budapest. Food is okay, staff is okay. Just outside the hotel are several pimps always bothering you

My wife and me were on leisure trip to Budapest and we were welcomed with all the much required homely feel by Mercure Budapest. Mercure Budapest is one of the best property owned by the ACCOR group of hotels. The hotel is located in the heart of the city. The property is right in the middle of city market area and the access to all the shops and tourist location is easy. The staff is very welcoming. The staff helps every customer to the max. The rooms are decently spacious. One might find the rooms small only if you plan to play a game of soccer or cricket inside the room. The room that we were put in didnt had a great view, but that was not a problem since we had plans to move about in the city and not to stay inside.The room is equipped with all the necessary amneties. The best part of the stay is the breakfast spread. We both really enjoyed the variety of breakfast items that were offered. I would strongly recommend Mercure Budapest City Centre to all the travellers who plan to stay in Budapest. Overall a memorable experience.
