This was our first visit to Budapest.
Ours was quite a long stay - 10 nights - so we wanted to be sure we made the right choice.
In short, we made an excellent choice, and had a superb stay in this fantastic city.
They were all great - reception, barmen and service staff. All were accommodating, courteous, friendly and very professional - a real class act.
Our initial impression was that the room was a little small, but we soon forgot about this and it really wasn't an issue during our stay. Budapest was experiencing a heatwave while we were there - the air conditioning in the room was quite quiet and very efficient. The curtains in the room blacked-out the light which really helped to ensure a good night's sleep. The rainfall shower was great and the bathroom mirror was heated so didn't mist up! Everything was spotlessly clean and very well maintained.
Excellent quality and variety. There were choices of English style cooked breakfast, German-style cold-cuts or French style continental breakfast. There were also cereals, yoghurts, fruit salad, black teas, herbal teas, coffees etc. It was a real boon to be able to vary our breakfasts during our long stay.
We were especially impressed by the efficiency of the staff at breakfast. After a table was vacated, it would immediately be cleared and prepared for use again. Breakfast items are replenished very frequently so we always had full choice whether we arrived at 8:30, 9:45 or whenever.
This level of professionalism is worthy of a 5-star hotel; in fact a few 5-star hotels we've used would be found seriously lacking if compared to the Palazzo Zichy.
Taking all together, the Palazzo Zichy is among the top 2 hotels we've ever stayed.
In value for money terms, nothing even comes close.
