We stayed at this Hotel as a City Break for our Honeymoon in April 2014. Excellent service from the web site which allowed us to book airport transfers, fruit, flowers and champagne, all at reasonable prices. When we arrived there was a lovely box of chocolates and hand written note congratulating us on our marriage.
Receptionists were friendly and helpful whenever we needed them.
The buffet breakfast was to die for, we could have stayed and eaten there all day.
Not too far a walk to the Market and river and a lovely church and square just outside the front door.
Pity they don't serve evening meals but plenty of places to eat nearby, we found a quirkly little place called Púder Bárszínház és Galéria, we loved it but maybe not to everyone's taste but worth checking out, great value. As we arrived on Easter Monday the reception staff were unsure if this restaurant would be open so they called them for us and confirmed that it was. Great service again.
Already planning a return visit for our anniversary, can we say more?

After such an excellent stay last year we returned to Budapest with family.
Once again the hotel excelled itself. It's the cleanest place I've ever stayed, the staff and service are outstanding and the breakfast is superb. They have maintained just as high standards as before. Lovely little touches such as fruit in the room, free drinks and snacks in lounge during the day all add up to a really great place to stay. Really recommend this hotel. Great value.

We booked this hotel based on the great Trip Advisor reviews. It lived up to its billing. Very welcoming with professional desk service willing to make any arrangements needed. They helped with our train reservations, booking events, etc. The hotel itself is a renovated castle with a lot of nooks and crannies and a beautiful breakfast area.

Breakfast- wonderful with virtually anything you want. Lots of fresh fruit,, breads, pastries but also eggs, meats, etc.

Location- convenient to public transportation and very safe. Within a short distance of at least 30 sidewalk cafes. Very safe.

Room- unique and well appointed. Very quiet with the room overlooking the street, but the neighborhood was peaceful.

We stayed for four nights in July 2014 at this hotel (finding it on this site) and are so glad we did. The hotel was easy to find from the subway (I printed off a map and brought it from home) and we then figured out how close it was to a tram, and other metro stops. We purchased the 72-hour Metro Pass which gave us quick on-and-offs on all Budapest transportation (we used mostly trams and Metro).

The hotel is spotlessly clean, modern and comfortable, with perfect beds and pillows. We could set our A/C where we needed it to be comfortable at night and all of the physical parts of room worked very well (bathroom, shower, lighting, hotel safe, etc.) I like that they have a plug that will still give power even when the card isn't in the slot on the door, perfect for charging electronics while at breakfast. Be aware that the bathroom door is opaque glass, but not soundproof, the only iffy-part of this excellent hotel. It will not bother most tourists at all.

I can't say enough nice things about the staff. Let me start with the front desk: all were efficient without being brusque (an unfortunate coupling often found in Europe) and consistently went the extra mile in their service and in trying to help us. They obtained tickets for us to Parliament, ordered a taxi for the airport, and would have gotten other event tickets for us if we needed them, allowing us to charge these to our room. They made good recommendations for things to see and restaurants to go to (don't miss the one in the little square out front: Bistro Matryoshka). The breakfast room staff should all have a raise, as they were friendly (all spoke excellent English) AND cheerful, even in the very early hours.

The breakfast is amazing: a full hot/cold selection of everything I could ever want and then some things I wouldn't have thought of. I loved their freshly squeezed orange juice, their delicious scrambled eggs, the chocolate croissants and the fresh fruit. Everything there was also refilled quickly and kept clean. One afternoon we came home a little early, and the Hotel had refreshments in the bar just off the lobby, with some snacks and chilled water. That was nice to put up our feet and recharge our batteries.

I would definitely stay here again. . . and again. We were on the end of a longer trip for us, and it was nice to have Hotel Palazzo Zichy to be our home away from home for a few days.

Room Tip: We were in room 308 on the interior courtyards and it was nice and quiet, and had separate walk-in c...

We stayed at the Hotel Palazzo Zichy in May. From the moment we stepped into the hotel we were greeted by helpful friendly staff and happy to find our comfortable clean room after a very wet arrival in Budapest. The hotel manager Judit, who i unfortunately did not get to meet, had chosen for us, as promised, a perfect room to celebrate our anniversary along with complimentary fruit on arrival. The breakfast was a pleasure with a good choice of both cooked and cold foods. A bread and pastry selection which was very impressive and a very good coffee machine. To add to this, in the afternoons, you could help yourself to free refreshments in the lobby including drinks and some small snacks. Perfect after a long day out exploring the wonderful city.
The hotel is also ideally situated near to the Calvin Ter metro. My tip would be buy the metro pass (which also covers bus and tram). The metro system is fantastic and very easy to use. We travelled nearly every line in every direction i was very impressed. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel as a perfect base for your trip to Budapest.
Budapest is certainly a city to be revisited and without hesitation i would stay in Hotel Palazzo Zichy again.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the small square was nice & still very quiet with lovely view of church.

One of the best hotels that I have ever visited. I stayed here in July for 3 nights. They gave us a lovely room on the fifth floor, diagonally overlooking the Church. Check-in was smooth and very quick. Front desk staff is amongst the smartest and most professional I have come across. I am very impressed. Breakfast area was clean, nicely maintained and wonderful staff who always smiled and wished us at every opportunity. Hotel, too, was very clean. But the maid on our second day didn't vacuum the room. The bathroom was also very good and larger than European standards.

Service standards of this hotel was top rate. For instance, our room did not have a tea kettle. But when we asked for it, they sent one up in minutes. I never expected them to send me one as my experience says that if rooms don't have kettles, they don't send one up to our room. But this one did.

They have a lovely and well stocked-up bar at reception level where you can pick up tea bags, milk, sugar, etc and take them to your room. Or you can make tea / coffee there. You can also take as many water bottles as you like for free, though the tap water is good enough for drinking. And ofcourse, the bar serves drinks as well. The breakfast menu was very good. They take very good care of you.

The hotel's location is very good. There are nice restaurants nearby; do check out the Indian restaurant called Curry House, which was great. The restaurant is also very close to the central area where there is a metro station.

What a classy hotel this one was. Staff- breakfast room, front desk and concierge- was very well groomed. Loved Palazzo Zilchy.

Room Tip: Take a room on the higher floor. It's located in a street, so don't expect great views. But...
