“Good hotel, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

This is a good hotel and is in a good location for exploring the city on foot. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for.
The decor is unusual, black and red, which can make it quite dark inside,not great if you are like me,not 21 any more, and need glasses and good light to read.
The staff were efficient and friendly.
Would I stay here again, YES.

Dear Brian,

Thank you very much for sparing the time to review your stay at the Buddha-Bar Hotel Budapest! Delighted to hear that you had a nice time with us and we appreciate your nice opinion. The Buddha-Bar concept is a special one indeed, based on lighting and sound sensation, dark colours dominate the interior to create the special atmosphere and this is someting that people fall in love with or dislike.

Do hope that you will soon return and in any case, we will be glad to provide you with some extra lamps for the perfect experience!

Kind Regards,
Eniko Bak

Stayed here this week. The hotel is great and the staff are very attentive. The hotels decor is stylish and contemporary.

The cocktail bar is a great place to unwind, whilst listening to Buddha Bar music.

The rooms are equipped with latest gadgets and have excellent AV equipment.

My only moan would be that the hotel should have invested more in the basics like effective air conditioning instead of some of the less needed things. Maintenance can up twice during our stay, however the temp never fell below 24.5C.

Hotel is located extremely close to the best attractions in Pest. The staff are informative and go out of their way to sort anything you need.

I stayed here last week with a friend and was very impressed with the hotel. Reception was excellent checking me in, the decor is great, and its well located. The place is spotless and quiet. Breakfast is very good, though a bit expensive for Budapest, and there are options nearby if you want a change. The restaurant is beautiful and the drinks and food were excellent. My only complaint about the room itself - there was no light over the desk, the room is a bit dark at night, so those of us who are older have a hard time with working at the desk. The bathroom was amazing with a toilet that had multiple functions and nice shower. It is a bit hard to find places to put your things in the bathroom with no shelves or counter space really. My only other comment (and why i cant give it excellent rating) is that the door staff was rude to my cousin when she dropped me off after dinner one night - tried to tell us she could not stop in front of the hotel if we were not checking in. we were already staying there, so where would they like me to be dropped off besides the front door???? i know there was construction in that area, but really? The man refused to give my cousin his name so she could speak to his supervisor.

Room Tip: rooms inside on the side street are away from possible traffic, but have no view. the other side mi...

amazing hotel

great decor
like an old old Honk Kong martial art movie - featuring some martial or spiritual art shrine :-)
zen garden in every floor
just to explain the ambiance - I had trouble finding my room - you walk down one of the reddish corridors and every few meters you find a dragon symbol with a number - I stood in front of it, contemplating what to do, stuck my electric key and a green light appeared - so... now what?
leaned on the wall and the door opened - apparently that's my room...

big rooms, big bathroom, free espresso machine :-), rain shower, hi-tech toalet
(yea - I'm serious :-) :-) try the control panel :-) )

amazing breakfast

everyone are so nice and efficacious

cons:
the rain shower my cause some flooding
lighting - loved it - but some people may find it dim

could not take a star because of those two
it was too much fun and was better then any other hotel I've been to the last few years
I simply got more on any other level than I expected
size, location - even the motif

fun

Room Tip: if you smoke - have a room with a balcony

Dear Nami,

It is absolutely delighting to hear that the Buddha-Bar atmosphere caught your imagination. Our unconcealed philosophy is to bring a truly unique, imparalelled dash of colour into the five star hotel palette. The design, the mood-lighting, commodious rooms and the state-of-the-art room facilities are all dedicated to create a special experience that can even be described as fun!

Our aim is no less than perfection, therefore constant improvement is always a priority to us. Following this intention, the shower problem you mentioned is already being taken care of and we do appreciate your comments.

We do hope that we will have the chance welcoming you on your next yourney to the Buddha-Bar world!

Kind regards,
Eniko Bak

I stayed here 2 weeks ago with my boyfriend to celebrate our anniversary. I have to say this is one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at. Perfect location to walk to anywhere you want and right next to the river! The décor is amazing – perfect if you’re into the Buddha theme. The entire hotel has the same mood lighting, lots of buddhas and friendly staff. We didn’t have any major problems while staying here, only once with getting the internet to work on the tv (which we were refunded for) and once more for towels (which were quickly brought up). The rooms are clean and spacious. We stayed in the executive room. I think one the best things about the room was the toilet!! Who knew a toilet could come with a remote control….. and the bed was one of the best I’ve ever slept in, I had such a good sleep for all 3 nights I was there. The only niggle I had with the dark lighting in the rooms. We went to the spa which although is quite small, is great which hot tiles to lie on after a relaxing massage. The massages weren't the greatest for a 5* hotel but still very good. Also, the breakfast is amazing, the cooked breakfast tastes amazing and is presented beautifully! We did visit the dinner restaurant but weren't overly impressed. The flavours were overbearing and didn't all match the dish. The bar was awesome with well made cocktails (and the buddha music!) Please don't expect to have access to the roof top bar though - this is apparently only used for private parties.

In all, we will definitely be returning! Thank you Tamas Fazekas for our bottle of wine, it really made our anniversary special!

There is a lot more I can say about this hotel, adn i'm probably missing out on lots in my review - if anyone needs more information please contact me

the location could not have been better, right in the centre of the city.
the breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choice. the room was spotlessly clean.
also the staff could not do enough for you.we shall be going back as soon as possible.
the only down side was i would maybe the lighting could be a little brighter.

The Buddha-Bar Hotel is wonderfully located in the heart of Pest (the side that has more of the city life going on). Easy to get to, when we arrived early the front desk took care of our luggage and spent some time recommending various things to do in Budapest, and where to eat without getting ripped off etc. The hotel staff are all very friendly, the rooms fantastic, along with all the in house facilities i would not hesitate to stay in the hotel again. We spent 3 nights & 4 whole days in Budapest (which is plenty). As a whole it was a great experience, with genuinely friendly people, great food and brilliant wines.

Room Tip: It was my birthday and the hotel upgraded us free of charge to a corner suite, which was massive and...
