“Fantastic staff , rooms, and location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

My husband and I spent 3 nights here. We loved it from the moment we exited the taxi. Met by a helpful warm porter, despite the late hour, smiles from all staff and much help to get us settled in our very large room. The room was a surprise, large bed, large bathroom, and beautiful doors that access a small balcony. The historic Astoria is a perfect location, with the subway right there. The breakfast was quite good and served early so we could make the most of our days. The staff at the front desk were so very helpful with directions and recommendations. Our room faced a busy street, and during the early evening it was busy with sirens. So if you are not a sound sleeper, request a room in a different part of this wonderful hotel. This hotel was such a great addition to our Budapest experience.

We arrived at the hotel just after midnight and were greeted by happy, smiling staff. They couldn't have done more. The room was spacious as was the bed. Everything we needed was in the room. We were on the 3rd floor and couldn't hear any of the traffic outside and at 7am it was a very busy street. Breakfast was fine only criticism was that the scrambled eggs were Luke warm but I have no doubt that if I asked for fresh I would have got it. There was a varied menu ranging from meats and cheese to sweet pastries, everything you could ask for. The staff were very knowledgeable and were able to advise which sights to see and what transport to take. Highly recommend this hotel and we will return to Budapest. Fantastic city and people.

I was lucky enough to travel to Budapest recently on a business trip. I stayed at the Danubius Hotel Astoria, and have to say that the Service was phenomenal. I welcomed by a great porter who greeted me by name upon arrival, and then Checked in by Lazslo the Front Of House Manager who was polite and friendly. The room was big, spacious and catered for everything. The wifi in the hotel was also very good, and I enjoyed the breakfast offering the following morning. Unfortunately I was only in Budapest for one night so didn't get to see much of the hotel, but it was a ten minute walk from the river front, and ten minutes in the other direction you were by the Cathedral, so all in all very central. A very enjoyable stay.

Me and my friend stayed in this beautiful central hotel. We have got a smaller room with window to the side street. It was perfect for us. We have got a big help from the young trainee, Steve, from the reception.
Thank you, we will come back in the Summer.

Room Tip: Main street rooms are bigger but side street rooms are ok and quiet

We stayed in the Astoria for 7 nights in Feb. Upon entering the hotel we were greeted warmly by the receptionist and were impressed with the overall hotel lobby. It has an old world charm about it.

Checking in was easy, and we went up to a superior double room via a quaint little lift, in the corner of reception. Once entering our room we were greeted with large room and a large bathroom with a balcony looking out onto the road below, which is nice to actually be able to use without having any restrictions like we often do in city hotels in the UK.

The thing is liked most about the room, was the fact it was not a generic hotel room, it had character, whilst this will not be to everybody liking, we like to wake up in a room and know where we are, rather than having to calculate if you are in London, Milan, Madrid, Munich etc.
The bed was very comfy, the bathroom was nicely sized and there was a safe and a mini bar in the room. We were also on the 5th floor so couldn’t hear any traffic from the road with the doors shut.

There was a good selection of breakfast available, pastries, cheeses, breads, cakes, bacon, egg and sausages. With other random selection of misc. food (liver pate, feta cheese, olives etc.). This gave us a good start to the day.

There is free Wi-Fi in the lobby which was good to connect our phones in the morning and night etc., the staff were very helpful and we would stay here again without a doubt.

The main selling point to me is how close it is to everywhere you want to go, we didn't use any public transport whilst in Budapest because we enjoyed getting out and about.

Room Tip: Book a superior Room, and ask for one on a high floor.

Danubius Astoria is exceptional in terms of its strategic location, its history and architectural beauty. It simply is a Landmark of the breathtaking city of Budapest and yet accessible to all. Not to talk about its modern amenities and the professioanl and friendly services its offers ... starting from its reception.

Room Tip: quiet room on the upper floors

We booked this hotel for a week's holiday, and both my wife and I are glad we did. The location makes it a little noisy in some of the rooms, but and excellent basis for exploring Buda as well as Pest. it is only a little walk to the Erzebet Bridge (Sp?), and the metro is outside the door. The rooms are big, and we got an excellent rate. The restaurant is fine, and gvfm.
The main thing to praise, however, is the staff. Every one of them was willing to go out of their way to help with advice and support as required. Highly recopmmended

Room Tip: try to get away from the main road
