Not SAFE for women travellinh alone

Posted Dec 21, 2017
I am not the type who writes reviews as I am simply too lazy for it. But this time I feel it is my responsibility to let everyone know about my experience. I ordered a bottle of water from room service at around 9pm. A waiter from the restaurant brought it up to my room and I signed the bill and closed the door. I had this instinct to look though the door fisheye and as I did, I realized the waiter was doing the same from the other side of the door. He was looking inside my room from the door fisheye. I know he couldnt see anything but I was restless as I didnt know what his intentions are and i was travelling alone. I kept checking the door and trying to make plans what to do next. Half an hour later, I could see the same guy from the door fisheye standing in front of another room's door. He clearly again delivered a room service as he had an empty tray on his hand. I observed him standing there a good 20 minutes but as it was too far, i couldnt see whether he was again just trying to look inside or simply listen or open the door. I travel a lot both for work and pleasure. Nothing like this ever happened to me before. My stress got worse after I called the reception to find out that there was no cameras in the hallways, no security manager on site at around 11pm, but just a security guy and one lady at the reception. I dont understand how a five star hotel can have such low security on place. Stay away, especially ladies, if you want to feel safe abd have a peaceful night

Outstanding location with friendly staff

Posted Dec 10, 2017
Pros: The location was the best! No need for a taxi, everything we wanted to see was within walking distance
Cons: Honestly, there really was nothing we noted, although the atrium rooms do not have windows.
Location: Restaurants, Christmas markets, sightseeing, parks, river, souvenir shops!
On check in we received a complimentary glass of champagne. The staff were all so friendly. This hotel is in an ideal location, only 2 minutes from the Christmas markets and a short walk to the waterfront. There were plenty of options for eating all around the hotel, some even open 24 hours. We chose not to have breakfast at the hotel, and instead went to an excellent bagel and doughnut shop a block away called Mr. Funk. They had a lot of great bfast menu options. During our stay, we chose to rent a car for a day and drive to Slovakia. There was an Avis rental car location only two blocks away. The hotel was well worth the price and we would highly recommend it, especially if you want to be in the downtown area. The only draw back were the atrium rooms (which we were in one), do not have windows. It was a minor inconvenience, since we do enjoy seeing the sunlight in our room, but we overlooked it, especially since the staff and area were so perfect. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Budapest and would love to come back for another stay.

Amazing views, prime location!

Posted Dec 1, 2017
It’s walking distance from the Parliament, US Embassy and St Stephens Basilica. We had an amazing time at the Christmas Market which was within a five minute walk from the hotel. Its an upscale hotel for a very reasonable price, unbeatable five star service and just an upstanding group of folks working for the hotel that made our stay so memorable. Every time we get back at our room we find a little gift that represents the warmness of their city and took the time entertain our son with a few activities to keep him busy. The spa and amenities of the hotel is upscale and the restaurant in the hotel had one of the most amazing acoustic bands that made it feel like being in a concert. We are definitely coming back to Budapest and we are definitely staying with Iberostar again, it’s a home away from home!

Quality hote

Posted Oct 15, 2017 on Hotels
Great bathroom, with separate tub and shower and private toilet stall that enabled both of us to use bathroom simultaneously. Great multi-faceted sauna and jacuzzi. Basic but functional fitness center. Very ample sized bedroom with small couch and comfortable chair. Person who checked us in was very helpful and gracious. Plus he allowed us to check in early. Location convenient but not in heart of tourist area, which actually was a plus to us. Good breakfast cafe across the street and several really good restaurants within walking distance.
