Beautiful historic hotel in the heart of Budapest.

Posted Oct 27, 2017
The Boscolo is a beautiful, glamorous and well managed hotel. In the heart of Budapest close to good transport links. It has many chic restaurants within minutes of its door. The Boscolo also boasts the opulent and stylish New York Cafe on its premises, which is a must when travelling to Budapest.

Beautiful, but I would pass on the breakfast

Posted Oct 13, 2017
Everything was lovely, of course. I paid extra for an upgraded room, and it was very large. Although I had a porch that I could walk out on to, it didn't face a street but some other rooms, so that was a bust. Breakfast buffet - huge, and super costly (for Budapest). I wanted to be sitting at street level sipping my coffee and enjoying my croissants, but the buffet is down in a basement of sorts - so no view. Next time, for me, I would pass on the breakfast buffet, and enjoy breakfast where all the locals were dining.

Hotel is lovely. Architecture is beautiful. Bar is charming. Breakfast is great. Staff very nice and accommodating. Bed comfortable. Quiet. Rooms are a little weird in layout and I never understand how a hotel can be rated 5 stars when the grout around the tub is moldy and the tub doesn't drain when taking a shower. Gross to see others hair, etc in water I'm standing in.

Great location and Old World charm

Posted Oct 5, 2017
Fantastic hotel! Easy to get to from the Keleti train station; great location overall. Ruin pub zone was walkable and transit connections were close by. The hotel is beautiful, inside and out. The staff were all very friendly and attentive.

Boscolo

Posted Sep 20, 2017
Pros: Building
Cons: Faster hot water
Location: Great location for the trains and good restaurants
Fantastic looking Hotel, the staff were so helpful and friendly which made our staff very relaxing. One slight problem was we had to run the water for a while to get hot water, apparently it was because the room was further from the hot water tank. Otherwise, the room was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. New York Cafe and the accompanying music was very enjoyable.

Stunning hotel

Posted Sep 12, 2017
Pros: Everything.
Cons: I wouldn't change anything.
Location: We found the hop on and off city tour bus invaluable and stopped right outside the hotel.
Staff very courteous and helpful, particularly restaurant staff during the very busy breakfast period. I booked two exclusive rooms and requested one with twin beds, which the hotel provided. In hindsight I regret requesting twin beds as that room was not of the same standard as the other one.

beautiful building

Posted Aug 30, 2017
Hotel biding is gorgeous. spotlessly clean rooms and very comfortable beds. excellent air conditioning. unfortunately staff serving in bar and at breakfast not up to same level. not rude just a bit disorganised and disinterested. drinks in bar very sub-par. breakfast service chaotic during busy times and not at all worth the price. location is not the best of the hotels in Budapest. if you eat and drink elsewhere then the hotel experience will be fantastic. would stay here again knowing that.
