Novotel Budapest City Hotel
Ranked #91 of 336 Hotels in Budapest
Reviewed June 14, 2012

Been back at the Novotel, to prepare a conference I'm co-organising there in September. My positive opinion remains unchanged. Of note to tourists sightseeing Budapest is that the hotel, located in Buda, is not in the very middle of the city (which is in Pest, on the eastern side of the Danube), but still is a good starting point for city trips thanks to the good public transport connections.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side of the hotel have more noise from the traffic.

I spent 3 nights at the hotel. Excellent staff, all speak excellent English. Clean rooms, plenty of towels and soaps to use. The bar is good, and the best thing is FREE WI-FI! All across the hotel. They have 2 swimming pools (indoor and outdoor), gym, sauna and GREAT FOOD!!! I really enjoyed the breakfast menu.

We stayed in this hotel 7 nights,
enjoying music and art in Budapest.
Found good food in the city.
The hotel is next to the congress center, 10 mins. from the city center.
Very quiet and clean.
Free internet everywhere, specially outside the room.
(Not always available in the room. They promise to make it better in the future).

Room Tip: A very good, not expensive hotel. Free parking, a bus station at 5 min. walk. Free internet everyw...

Not in the heart of city but public transportation is close.Generally good friendly staff clean and spacious rooms.Good for who wants to explore city instead of spending time at the hotel.

This hotel is very convenient for business, with a congress center in the hotel itself.

The hotel matches pretty well the Novotel average standard.
Positive:
- Free wifi
- Nice green park around
- Commercial mall within 200 meters.
- Responsive and professional staff at the desk
- Good variety of channels on the TV

Negative:
- Free wifi is very unstable and slow (shared experience with other colleagues)
- Restaurant/bar service is very slow, food is average
- Hotel is remote from downtown, limited public transport
- In my room experience: Blocked sink

So I would recommend tourists, visitors to select an hotel downtown instead as this one is remote. Otherwise it is good for organising meetings or for business stay. I didn't have the opportunity to test the swimming pool and spa.

The staff was excellent in their attention to customers. They helped me set up a city tour and helped me print off boarding passes for my departure flight.
I would have given them a 5 rating but their breakfast area is too crowded. They take in several bus tour groups at one time and too many people are trying to get around the buffet. I was impressed however that their staff managed to keep everything stocked even with the crowds.
I would stay here again.
