“Excellent hotel!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Very good place with friendly staff, always extremely eager to help with whatever issue. well-located and great view on the Hungarian National Bank. As I didn't use the spa, I can't judge it. The only negative point is the curtains in the room because they don't darken enough... Otherwise, we can only but recommend this hotel.

Very well located, walking distance to a range of attractions in town. Comfortable and typical Iberostar facilities, modern, welcoming and practical. Nice breakfast to start the day with batteries duly recharged.

We already visited another Iberostar, and as a city hotel, it was also witl excellent service. It was not the first time for us, we really like the whole atmosfere of the lobby area, the parfum of the hotel is the best we ever smelled,

Friendy and professional welcome at the reception with the fresh warm towels and sparkling wine.... this is real 5 star.
Staff is very friendy and helpful, we really liked the breakfast with the fresh orange juice.

We highly reccomend this place and we will come back for sure.

My friend and I enjoyed being guests for 5 nights at the Iberostar for a tourist trip to Budapest. We were thrilled with the location of the hotel and were able to walk to many of our desired sites.

The neighborhood is safe, well lit at night, and accessible to many popular tourist sites in short walking distance. There are many independent restaurants, coffee/pastry shops, a Starbucks, and cafes close to the hotel and thus we seldom needed a taxi or public transport, just well soled-shoes.

The manager on duty was excited to show us the 'before' photos of the hotel which now adorn the lobby walls as decorative art. The hotel stands as one example of a remarkable and inspiring renewal of wonderful city.

High level of value for your money. Highly recommended for it's excellent location. Get a photo with 'Ronald Reagan' nearby!

A long weekend in Budapest was made even more enjoyable by staying at this hotel: the room was brilliant, the location excellent and the staff and facilities second to none. You may think this review is over the top, but other reviews of mine will show that I'm not always impressed with hotels - this one deserves all the praise I can muster.

In terms of location, it is well positioned for all of the places you'd want to visit: a short walk takes you to the Chain Bridge, the Vaci utca, the Opera House, Parliament and St Stephens. It also has a number of really good restaurants within easy walking distance (see my restaurant reviews!) and yet is in a really quiet part of the city. It has free wifi, which actually worked, as well.

We took a double deluxe room (103) and it was excellent - lots of room, a huge double bed, a wonderful shower and standalone bath. Although we didn't pay for breakfast in advance, we ended up having breakfast there every morning. I have seen some criticise the cost (HUF 6,100 per person) but you are served as much fresh (and I mean fresh!) orange juice and tea/coffee as you want, and there is also a good menu which is all cooked fresh to order, including eggs any way you want, eggs benedict, eggs florentine, omelettes or scrambled eggs (the Hungarian version is extremely tasty).

Pu it like this - I will be staying in a Premier Inn in London in a month or so's time. I will pay *more* for that hotel for an ordinary room and an ordinary serve-yourself breakfast which has been kept warm under lights than I did at this hotel. And, if you book to stay in a 5-star hotel, why bother going out for a breakfast for which you will pay around the same, anyway!

The staff were brilliant. The maid must have noticed that I had put up a birthday card (it was the reason for the trip!) and, when we returned that evening, there was a bottle of sparkling white wine, some fruit and a card with 'Happy birthday' written on it from the Director. Everyone was at great pains to help us get the most out of our visit.

And there is a spa, with a jaccuzi, steam room and sauna (and some exercise machines, but we didn't bother with them!) This was a gem and a brilliant way of relaxing after walking long distances around the city. Only once did we have to share this with anyone else - it's a well-kept secret!

Overall, this is a much better choice than some of the more expensive 5 star hotels in Budapest: they would be hard-pressed to match this one. It really ought to be #1!

Room Tip: Double deluxe room 103 was spacious, well-appointed and had a good view over the park

We stayed at this hotel for one night. We were very pleasantly surprised. It was in a good location and easy walking to the Chain Bridge, Parliament and shopping. The hotel rooms were nice, modern and looked newly remodeled. The bathroom had a separate walk-in shower but no bath tub. The tub wasn't an issue for us but something to consider if that is a priority. And as an Expedia VIP member, we also got a free room upgrade.
