“just arrived back from Buddha Bar Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

My wife, son and I have just arrived back from 4 nights in Buddha Bar Hotel. The hotel is lovely but definitely over-pretentious - all the corridors and rooms are clad in black or dark red material but instead of being 'trendy' it gives the place a dark, somewhat creepy feel. The rooms are very very high tech but the basics dont work - for example in both the rooms we had, the walk-in showers leaked across the whole bathroom floor,so you every time you took a shower you spent the next 20 minutes mopping the whole bathroom up afterwards. The TV's are linked to bluetooth so for some reason come on several times of their own accord during the night. I also drank a bottle of water in the room on arrival, after a long hot day travelling, thinking it was complimentary, but it turned out it was 8 euros (£6). I told the receptionist immediately of my mistake and was told I wouldn't be charged but when I checked out it was on my bill. WHen I queried it I was told, quite rudely, "you drank it you pay for it". Also, the breakfast room is so small that there is a bun-fight every day to get a table to avoid being sat either outside in the street (literally) or in another room. It took over 45 minutes for my scrambled egg to arrive on two of the four occasions, due to the volume of people ordering. The hotel bar is always empty as the prices are extortionate, especially when you can have a beer in a local bar for less than £2 a pint. There is only one person on check-out each morning so we had to wait 20 minutes to check out, thus keeping our taxi waiting. On the plus side the staff are generally friendly, the food is very good when it arrives and the location is 5 star. The place is spotless too. It is a very nice hotel, so don't be put off by this review, but it tries too hard to be trendy and forgets to do some of the basics, thats all. Give it a go and see for yourselves.

A good hotel close too many restaurants and shopping area. Our room was a bit too small for us, but everything was there that you need. We got the chance to upgrade but, declined as this was an extra 120.00 euro's per night!! Breakfast is a very slow service if you go down between 9.45am-10.30am my husband actually walked away one morning because the wait was just under 1 hour. Spa service was excellent, and the price was good with a 20% discount on the couple massage.

I booked this hotel for its location and previous reviews and it was a absolute stunner. The service was first class and the rooms fantastic. Probably the best hotel I have stayed in. So clean and the staff really friendly. Will definitely be going back!

My wife and I decided to book this hotel as "base camp" to visit Budapest.
It is in a great position, very close to the start of Vaci Utca.
The hall is not very big, but so sought.
Furniture is really cool.
Room was comfortable and wide enough.
Bathroom something amazing: huge shower and robotic wc!
Staff is willing and very kind.
5 stars price....
Well recommended.

Wow! This is a wonderful hotel, we wewe upgraded to a Tower suite and it was so big that we never used the top floor. Great bathrooms with large bath tub, comfortable beds, very quet and a good spot to stay. The restaurant is also topclass, love their sushi!

Room Tip: All rooms are great but I Think you should choose something extra here, so priceworthy!

We spent 6 nights at Buddha-Bar in Budapest. I really liked the hotel!
The suite "decor" was just so cool with a very cozy bed and the toilette was also great. The two big windows had a clever double glass system and fancy dark curtains( what made my sleep much better)
Another thing that I liked was a italian coffee machine( Nespresso?) well, I do not remember the machine's brand but I did some nice drinks.

The hotel also have a spa with sauna, jacuzzis and a small fitness center.

I do recommend the lounge and the terrace if you want to have a nice meal or just take some beers.
The staff in Buddha-Bar Hotel is friendly and helpfull.

It is a place that I will come back for sure!

Buddha-Bar Hotel offers great service and a central location for site-seeing. A palace from the outside, the hotel has a chic red interior. The beds are comfortable. Breakfast is delicious. My wife and I also enjoyed the Asian restaurant and the bar.

The hotel does not offer parking, but they do have a valet service. $$$
