Great Location and Service

Posted Jul 17, 2014
Cons: Need to do some updating of bathrooms and common areas.
The location is perfect--on the Danube and right next to Chain Bridge. Get a room overlooking the river which is spectacular at night when Buda Castle and the Chain Bridge are illuminated. The hotel is an older property that could use some updating, but is still very well maintained and feels like a 5* hotel. Excellent breakfast buffet with great service. All around great hotel. Highly recommend it and I am very picky about hotels and typically stay away from older properties.

Comfort

Posted Jun 12, 2014
Pros: Location and service
Cons: Bar service when seated outside.
Location: Walk to Opera on Agrassi ut, have lunch at the Market and walk across the Chain bridge.
Excellent location, especially at the end of a river cruise. Special mention and thanks to the chief concierge and his very knowledgeable staff. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the view of the river was enjoyable. We could walk or take a short taxi rude everywhere we wanted to go and the staff gave excellent recommendations. We felt welcomed and enjoyed our stay very much. Highly recommended.

Good hotel

Posted May 6, 2014
Pros: Rooms, Location, staff.
Cons: Nothing
We arrived early at 9:00AM and our room was ready. We had requested an upper floor room with river view and were very pleased with our room. The view at night of the castle was impressive. The staff was helpful and reccomended excellent restaurants for our two nights. Room was spacious and clean.

excellent location

Posted May 6, 2014
Pros: Best location Very clean and impressive hotel
Cons: can not think of any,
Location: Central place, very convenient to visit all attractions of Buda-Pest
Our superior room was comfortable but not luxurious. Bit small for our liking and the toilet was cramped up. But the view was great, hotel facilities were excellent and the staff was very polite and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful and full of variety.

Amazing hotel!

Posted Apr 23, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff, immaculately clean, gorgeous view from our room.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Right in the centre, you can see crown bridge from the hotel. Lots of attractions nearby, easy to get around.
The hotel was perfect from start to finish. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The hotel was immaculately clean and the view from our room was stunning (we paid more for a river facing room and it was well worth it - every morning waking up to the river danube and royal palace). We didn't have a meal in the hotel or use the pool so I can't comment on either (we were too busy sightseeing). We always had a few drinks in the hotel bar before bed and I can recommend the cocktails (!) and it was very chilled out and relaxing. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel. Thank you very much Intercontinental Budapest for a wonderful stay x
