I am very pleased with my stay at the Bristol hotel in Budapest. It's very conveniently located (just off the main street), the grocery shop is literally on the corner of the road, the tourist hop on- hop off bus stop is 3 minutes away, which makes getting out and about very easy. The most beautiful New York Cafe is about 10 mins walk, there is a great choice of shops and restaurants nearby.
The hotel itself is quite compact and beautifully done, starting with grand chandelier in the entrance hall, spacey conservatory bar/ breakfast room, finishing with bijou gym and sauna in the basement, the use of which is free, including complimentary towels, showers and lockers, which makes a pleasant change in a capitalist world where we are so used to pay for everything! The lift takes you directly to the basement, so you don't need to go via reception in order to get to the sauna and no need to worry that other people might see your red face after it!
The rooms are quite big and warm, the bathrooms are very modern and immaculate, there is a minibar as well. The beds are generously sized and very, very comfortable! Flat-screen TVs with the choice of channels in all major languages, including Russian! The windows are openable, which is fantastic if you get de-hydrated from the air-conditioning and want some fresh air! The curtains are good quality black-outs - perfect for a sleepy-head like me AND the breakfast is served till 11, which is a great bonus!
The breakfast deserves a special mentioning, as it really is lush, with a huge variety of drinks, meats, cheeses, fruit, veg, yoghurts, cereals, full English breakfast with 3 types of eggs and even goose liver pate! Decent coffee as well, which is a rarity nowadays!
The staff could not be better: all young, fit, polite, good-looking, perfect-English-speaking males, who would give you recommendations on dining (and even negotiating a free taxi ride to or from the restaurant for you), know everything about the local attractions and deliver a tea/ coffee set to your room upon request with a smile on their face!
The hotel also has a storage room for your luggage at no extra charge, which is superb if you are on a later flight.
Last, but not least, the hotel's bar has a "happy hour" (or 2 hours, to be precise), from 5 to 7p.m. when you pay for one drink and get the second free. EVERY DAY!!!
They also accept Euros everywhere we went in Budapest (including the hotel), which makes life easier.
Overall, my friends and I had a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody considering a trip to this beautiful Hungarian capital.
