Intercontinental location

I'm getting confused between Buda and Pest - is the Intercontinental in a generally good, convenient location? I know the views of the Danube are great, but is it close/walking distance to the sights, shopping, restaurants, etc? We can stay there for free using points but don't want to waste them if it isn't a good place to stay! Thanks

Yes, the Inter-Continental Hotel would be an excellent place to stay IMO. You will have many restaurants nearby and good shopping as well. The sights are scattered throughout Budapest but the hotel is close to two Metro

(subway) Stations that will transport you to the various sights within minutes. Lucky you in being able to stay there for free!

The Intercontinental is a solid base camp for your time in Budapest. As Taxman said, those sights that are out of your comfortable walking range, can be easily accessed by the public transportation that sits real close to the hotel. You are a short walk (<10 minutes) from the castle area, parliament, major shopping streets, great neighborhoods, restaurants and pubs. On the Pest side, I prefer putting family/friends in the Inter.

Enjoy your time!

And one more voice in the chorus: the location can't be beat. The Intercontinental has a long history in Budapest and this was not their original location (the present Marriott was); they were the first Western hotel chain to open a branch in Budapest, in the 1970s, and they have been among the best choices continually since then. The current hotel is pretty much ideally situated.
