“By far the best hotel in Budapest”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

For the second time in 2 months time we had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful hotel. Since the first vacation we had in this hotel was great, it was obvious for us to book the Iberostar Budapest for the second time.
This time we booked the superior room. The superior rooms are very spacious, have a contemporary but warm interior. Deluxe bathroom with a large and wide bath, separate shower and toilet.
The staff of the hotel makes you feel at home. The service level goes beyond of the level you would expect in a 'standard' 5 star hotel.
In the morning the Iberostar Hotel serves a breakfast a-la-carte combined with a buffet with an excellent quality.
Lunch and diner are also to be recommended. The chef (Sergio from Madrid) shows he is passionate and is the expert in preparing the most wonderful and mouth watering combinations.
We will certainly go back again!

It is a beautiful, comfortable, boutique hotel in a very convenient location. Very comfortable room (De Luxe), with bath, shower, minibar (fees apply), coffee maker, tea. Beautiful (and efficient) lighting the room and bathroom. Very comfortable bed, dressing gowns, slippers, nice toiletries. The only drawback: the ladies room service did not complete the supply of coffee and tea (you had to just assert). Front desk staff very attentive. The restaurant is cozy, with courteous service. They are not servile, with everything you need to ask yourself. The breakfasts were very filling and tasty. We did not like was that the coffee, tea or juice you had to ask the waiter. We would have liked to see in this respect was self-service. Spa in the hotel's jacuzzi and sauna (Turkish and dry), but we did not have time to take advantage of them. We were in the hotel for 3 days, and Budapest has a lot to offer, and enjoyed its charms. Unfortunately, parking (ie underground - Lipot garage located next to the hotel) is very expensive, we paid for three days 26, 400 forints, it's very expensive, but the garage is secured and we are interested in). Close to the hotel are a variety of pubs and hour shop (on the street October 6 utca). It serves Hungarian specialties and, of course, good wine.
I would recommend this hotel, it is very convenient, high-quality services....

Comfortable sleeping room. Way over the top decor. Very attentive staff. Quiet location with little street noise at night. Breakfast both from a menu and a small buffet, both very good. Excellent coffeemaker in sleeping room-unusual. Bathroom with private WC and separate room for shower. All and all a very nice small hotel. Immaculate.

Budapest is an amazing city. The Iberostar Grand was an amazing hotel, perfect combination for an amazing weekend really :)
bedroom was not huge (twin beds were basically not separated) and the glass walled bathroom wasn't ideal for friends sharing, BUT loved our stay. the beds were super comfortable, the view was spectacular, the location was great, the staff were friendly and helpful. A tip for breakfast or a morning/afternoon tea is the strudel shop a few doors down - I had 4 pieces it was that good!!!!

The location of this hotel is absolutely splendid. It is within walking distance of all the major attractions, bars and restaurants. We had a deluxe room which was the most luxurious I have ever stayed in. The room directly overlooked Liberty Square and was huge in all dimensions. We stayed at a half board basis and only found the food barely adequate. Breakfast was ok but dinner was of a limited choice and the menu appears to be unchanged on a daily basis which would become a bore should you spend more than a weekend. The overall experience however was positive as the staff were attentive without being overly so

What a fabulous hotel this is. We had read the rave reviews on Tripadvisor and we certainly weren't disappointed. Great location. Best rooms on the top floor (floor to ceiling glass walls). Definitely worth upgrading to a superior room or a suite and asking for a view of Liberty Square. We opted for half-board: delicious buffet (or a la carte) breakfast - with champagne, if you like and a visual feast in the evening (a la carte). Will definitely return!

Room Tip: Go for a superior room or a suite on the top (5th) floor!
