One of the nicest hotels I've stayed in. Excellent location at the foot of the castle and a 2 minute walk from the bridge to the historic center. A very classy hotel, tastefully decorated with pleasent staff and beautiful rooms. I had room 66, facing the castle side. The room was large, 24m², and with a balcony and a sumptious bathroom with a deep bathtub. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in - firm and soft at the same time. Only uncomfortable part was that there were two small, one person blankets on a double sized bed, so for a couple it's hard to cover both of you at once.
Nothing bad to say about this place, especially for the very reasonable price of 85€ per night. I would return without any hesitation.

I stayed here for 2 nights with a friend in October. We got a good deal - river view room for £80 per night. It was so worth it, but would have paid more for this outstanding hotel. The view is simply sensational accross the Danube, the chain bridge and the Parliament. The staff could not do more for us, they were so helpful and friendly. There are good cocktails in the hotel bar at quite reasonable prices for a nice hotel (1,600 florint, or about £6). The rooms are very adequate, only no tea and coffee facilities. The beds are wonderful, with proper thick warm duvets (no scratchy hotel blankets here!). I recommend using the airport shuttle transfer service when you arrive. It is 5000 florint (about £15) return per person and drops you at the door. The hotel will book this for you on the way back. Check out is late at 1pm which was appreciated on our last day. The hotel is in a great location near the castle in Buda, with lots of good restaurants and the main tourist attractions walking distance. Very impressed. Only downside is smoking in the bar downstairs which filters up through the whole hotel, but smoking is everywhere in Hungary.

It'a very elegant and hotel, with a breathtaking view and excellent and helpful staff. We stayed in a riverside room with an amazing view to Lanchid bridge and Danube. It was really romantic! As we saw, even the rooms that do not face the Danube have a nice view to Buda castle. The rooms are clean and if you have a car there are 2-3 parking spots in front of the hotel that are free!!! You can ask them to reserve a spot for you and luckily you'll have a safe place for your car. If these spaces are occupied you have the alternative to park opposite to the hotel to the public parking with some acceptable charge.
Highly reccomended!!

I can't believe that this hotel is part of Design Hotels. There is nothing about it that would merit such a distinction. It's simply plain. I was not satisfied with the cleanliness nor the practicality of the room.The only redeeming factor was the view.
The staff is rude and unwelcoming. When I hurt my leg and asked the front desk for an english speaking doctor they told me to "google it" !!! My jaw dropped. I will never return or recommend this hotel to anyone.

Lanchid 19 is a beautifully designed hotel with a modern aesthetic on the southern banks of the Danube. It's just a short walk over the Chain Bridge to the restaurants and sights of Pest. The room was comfortable and clean. My only complaint is that it felt very damp, even with the air conditioner on. The English-speaking staff was extremely helpful. The full breakfast is pricey but divine. For a cheaper meal, visit the cafe a few doors to the west of the hotel.

Stayed there for one night to recover from the Zsiget 2010 festival.

If you take a room on the higher levels you get an excellent view at the Danu.
The rooms are OK with good and large beds. The bathroom has a decent size buth the shower is awkward. Your "forced" to sit in the bath because the showerhead is mounted at about 1.40mtr high. Not a problem for me as I needed a bath, but taking just a shower and run can be a challange.

In every room there is free internet, even on the tv-set. But you have to use the remote-control of the TV to operate it in a clumsy way; just like typing a text on a mobile-phone.
In the guide they mention that you can get a wireless keyboard at the desk in the lobby. However the staff doesn't know anything about it. But to solve my problem, checkin on my flight while my iPhone was dead, they lend me a laptop.

I had a pleasant stay.

Before we arrived really looking forward to staying here and hotel responded promptly to all e-mail enquiries. Staff were lovely and helpful throughout and nothing was too much trouble. Great location and good value but not 4*. Decor is getting tired and needs a paint inside. The rooms were good enough size, good bathroom and clean. However...... only 4 clothes hangers for 2 people and not high enough to hang dresses. Despite space to install further storage there was only the small hanging space and everything else had to stay in suitcases or room would have looked a tip.

Trying too hard to be trendy without thinking of practicalities. Would recommend for location but not a hotel to lounge or sit and reqax and read in when want to rest from sightseeing.

Dear Guest,

thank you for taking the time of reviewing our hotel. First of all I would like to apoligize for having too few clothes hangers in your room. Normally there should be more in the rooms. We started repainting some of the rooms a couple of weeks ago and will hopefully finish by the end of the month.
As for the lounge, our management has already the plans for making it a bit bigger as we also realized this need. We hope that by your next visit you will be able to relax in our new lounge.

Kind regards,

Szonja Demeter
Communications Manager
