“Faded grandeur”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

I only stayed one night and didn't eat here other than breakfast so have limited experience of the service but the room was spacious and had a lovely view of the Danube and city of Budapest. The room was comfy enough but faded and in need of updating. It was clean though and perfectly adequate, just not as exciting as its facade and location suggest it could be.

Dear Valued Guest,

We appreciate your efforts for having taken your time for a report on TripAdvisor website, concerning your recent stay in our Danubius Grand Hotel!
Referring to your comments about the rooms, yes they are old and have the charme of the last century. The furniture is very valuable, they are antique furniture but we hope that our owners in the UK will have the possibility to give a "facelift" to our rooms very soon.
We would be very glad to able to inform you first on our refurbished, new rooms and hope we can welcome you then again at our hotel for a real relaxing.
Best regards

Hotel Manager

Great spa and warm swimming pool for family. The hot water is from hot spring, so we could keep hot inside our body even we went out late night. The hotel is placed a little apart from the city center but it wouldn't be problem if you drive there. The room had enough space for 2 adults and 1 child. I can recommend this hotel.

Stayed 6/4/14 - 10/4/14
The reception on arrriving was excellant our bags where taken from the taxi ,checking in took moments .we were then taken by the bell boy to our room. The room thou a little dated ,was clean and spacious with a great view of the Danube.
The restaurant was excellant with live background music in the evenings. The breakfast was self service.
The spa pool was excellant , we didnt take any treatments .
The island has the benefit of being quiet althou remote from the town centre. Once we discovered the local buses on the island ,this was no longer an issue. We then appreciated the serenity of the setting.
If you want relaxation the hotel is ideal. If you prefer to be in the town centre and its attractions ,this hotel is n't for you .
Incidently the spa was a real luxuary so maybe the Gellert would be a good choice

Room Tip: We had a river view ,perhaps spoilt by the high rise appartments on the other side.

The room was clean and comfortable staff helpful and friendly, food good to very good only criticism would be no breakfast tea or milk in the room, there were two tea bags and two tiny pots of creamer delivered on request but that's your lot! if you wanted another cup of tea ring housekeeping and yes two tea bags and two creamers, seems very penny pinching when everything else is fine. We found the room very quiet but hotel not very busy, time of year I suppose.

Room Tip: Overlooking the river is nice and interesting watching the amazing boats going past.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

During mid-march I stayed with my girlfriend for 3 nights at this hotel . We visited Budapest and wanted to enjoy a relaxing weekend.
We reserved the deluxe double room .
I am giving this hotel an average score but this is because I consider certain elements crucial while many of you may not.
Problems :
. Soundproofing is very bad. To me, being able to enjoy some quiet time without hearing everything my neighbours whisper is important. Unfortunately this is not possible here . We could hear most of what our next door neighbours talked (and they talked not yelled), their TV , everything in the hallway, and a lot from our neighbours upstairs. So this could be a huge problem if you want to sleep and your neighbours want to stay up and chat or watch TV :)
. Beds, we asked for a kingsize and got 2 bed stuck together. Now this is normally not a problem but these beds had wheels and tended to go their separate ways during the night :).
. No free WiFi in the rooms. These days not providing such a cheap, readily available and sometimes necessary service is just bad.
. Room is a bit worn out with aging furniture (which is actually nice) , rusty heat elements and a partially "impaired" terrace door. No mosquito nets on the windows which could be quite a downside during the summer.

Advantages:
. Beautiful view. Our room overlooked the park and it was beautiful
. Terrace. We had a small classic looking terrace where you could just sit and enjoy the sun and the view. I imagine that in the summer this is even better.
. Helpfull and competent staff. Excellent language skills (I also heard come of them speaking german ). Also very helpful and ,it seemed to me , customer oriented.
. Nice spa section. Small but well kept. Has a swimming pool with cool water and 4 hot water pools plus a kneipp foot bath . Also at the time it had a beautifull cherry tree blooming outside.
. Hotel outside look. Very nice, classic architecture and surrounded by beautiful scenery.

All in all this would have been an excellent location had the room been provided with some soundproofing. As I mentioned , this for me is quite important and having to sleep with ear plugs because of chatty neighbours left me with mixed feelings about the place.

Dear Valued Guest,
We appreciate your efforts for having taken your time for a longer report on TripAdvisor website, concerning your recent stay in our Danubius Grand Hotel!
First of all we thank you for your kind words of the environment, the beautiful view from your room, where you could enjoy the sun. It is very important for us that you found our staff helpful and competent with excellent language skills. Your positive words give us energy to be more and more better.
Regarding your sentences about the king size bed, I have to inform you that all of our deluxe rooms are equipped with twin beds, because they are larger and standard rooms have French beds only.
We are very sorry for the soundproofing you were not satisfied with. Next time we are ready to offer you the most silent room in our classical building in order to have a real relaxing time with us. Please indicate this feature on your booking.
In some months we can grant all of our guests free WIFI in the rooms as well and hope you will visit us in the near future to try it.
We are looking forward to welcoming you again in our Danubius Hotel.
Best regards
Management
