“Fantastic hotel! Fantastic weekend break!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Heard lots of great things about Budapest and wanted to visit for a long time so when me and my other half finally had some time off, we looked at places to stay on travel republic. This hotel was the first hotel on the list and had lots of great reviews and the pictures looked fab. So we decided to book a 3 night stay from the 4th-7th April.
Can't rate this place enough. The reception staff were very helpful and spoke very good English, our room was immaculate, very modern and cleaned everyday, the shower was amazing, there was great wifi throughout our whole stay and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. For example, we phoned down to book a taxi one evening which was waiting for us when we arrived in the lobby, and we were greeted by a very friendly taxi driver. We didn't eat at the hotel but the menu looked very good and was reasonably priced. We did however drink in the hotel bar one evening, all staff were very welcoming and there was a wide variety of drinks and cocktails to choose from. There was also a pianist playing which was lovely! The hotel is in a great location, not in the very centre of Budapest but a short walk (about 10 minutes) from the river, close to tram and metro stops, and near many shops, bakeries and restaurants.
I would highly recommend staying at the continental hotel and if I ever return to Budapest, I would most definitely stay here again!!!!

Room Tip: We had a room on the 6th floor, I believe it was 611. no disturbance and easy to get to using the li...

We stayed over Easter weekend and had a wonderful time. The hotel is in a great location; the Jewish quarter which has lots of great places to eat and drink. It's a 15 minute walk to the main square, it's more central than it looks on a map. The hotel staff were lovely and very attentive and they even left a Easter nest full of chocolate on Easter Sunday in our room. The views from the rooftop pool were stunning. We would definitely stay here again.

Must admit the first night after a late check in I did think the area looked rough but in the day light the next day realised we had picked the correct hotel and settled in for a great stay. The breakfast was lovely and had everything you would expect but the fresh fruit could have been replaced quicker as a few days it was empty. The room was modern and comfortable and we enjoyed a good night sleep .
One thing I would suggest is that the bar is better sign posted as we didn't know it was there for a day but once there service and setting was good and the cocktails good. All in all a great stay and would recommend

Just back from a great stay at the boutique hotel Zara in budapest with friends. The reception staff couldnt have been more friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and functional and the location was excellent. The only thing that stopped it getting 5 stars was the fact that we often had to queue for breakfast as the dining area was small and couldnt accommodate all guests. I would definitely recommend this hotel as a great place to stay.

We have just returned from visiting Budapest where we stayed at the Continental Zara hotel. It is a great hotel, the room we had was excellent, very large with a great bathroom. The breakfast room was very good even though there were quiet a lot of people having breakfast at the same time. The choice at breakfast wad also excellent. The best bit was the bar, it was on the 1st floor overlooking the huge foyer. The staff were friendly and also very helpful. Although the hotel is not in a very attractive part of Budapest I would recommend it to anyone visiting the city.

Dear Stevie61,

Thank you for your nice and cordial review. I definitely know our „weaknesses” – the breakfast room could be too busy sometimes especially if the wheather does not allow to use the garden and the area of the hotel is not full with tourist attractions, but full with tourists – but beleive me, if you find a lot of people around you, it must be a good place. I hope you will return soon!

Great location, close to almost everything. Quiet at night and friendly staff. The staff helped us with everything we needed, like bustickets and so on. Very fresh rooms, clean and tidy all week long:-)

We booked this hotel as a package holiday throguh expedia for a weekend break. The location was a short ten minute walk from the majority of things to see in Budapest. The staff on our arrival upgraded us straight away to the deluxe room and the room was very spacious, very clean and well presented. The pool and sauna were lovely on the top floor and the bar was a nice place to chill prior to going out in the nights for meals. The concierge were lovely and friendly and helped us to book our tours and taxis when one was needed.

Everything you need you need in a hotel as a base and it was worth every penny. beautiful hotel, friendly staff and in a prime location. Would definitely go back.
