The Palazzo Zichy really is a gem of a hotel. We booked through Hotels.com at £60 a night after reading up on a few hotels in Budapest and couldn't believe our luck when we arrived.
Our pickup from the airport was waiting for us and it was about a 30 min drive to the hotel, where despite being a bit early a room was available for us on the 5th floor.
We were opposite the lift but didn't get disturbed by any noise in the corridor throughout our stay. The room was large, with a comfy double bed and a luxury bathroom layout. Free WiFi in the rooms & free tea & coffee in reception during the day were added bonuses. The breakfast buffet was exceptional, with the dining area being just about big enough for everyone to get a table!
The location isn't totally central, but nothing is too far away in Budapest. A 5 minute walk takes you to the national museum, a further five and you're at the central market. We also found the Opera was a 20 minute walk, where you can always stop in at the Szimpla wreck bar on the way (or Tesco Expressz!).
All in all an excellent hotel that added to a wonderful stay in Budapest.
