We chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The hotel is an elegant, modern, conversion of a grand (palatial) Budapest mansion. The foyer, in particular, is impressive. Our fourth floor room was well equipped, comfortable, quiet, and fine in every respect, though perhaps a little small. Breakfast is comprehensive and the food is good. There are plenty of good, common facilities including a gym and business center.
Invariably we found the front-desk staff to be enthusiastic, knowledgeable, eager to help, and reliable. They really added to the pleasure of our visit.
Budapest is a once-grand city showing the stress of one hundred years of decline. The central area of Pest, close to the Danube, has been well restored and gives one a sense of what the city could be like. However, you do not have to walk more than half a block from a fine street to see run down buildings and poorer shops.
Hotel Palazzo Zichy is close to the transition zone between Pest's ritzier areas and those in need of an upgrade. We felt comfortable in the neighborhood but increasing less comfortable as we walked to the East. One hopes Budapest continues to improve.
