I'd seen the Marriot on previous visits to Buadapest and thought... no! don't like the look of that exterior... well.. BIG mistake.. we got to stay here with Viking River Cruises and we had a first class stay from start to finish! It might look dated on the outside but on the inside it's excellent.. newly refurbished this year.
We were in room 435 which gave us wonderful views over the Danube. Large, light room, added bonus you could open the window.. Large, very comfortable bed... we slept very well. As the hotel was so newly refurbished everything was in immaculate condition.
Air con was efficent.. it was 30 degrees plus outside so a cool room was very welcome! We had the window open first thing and at sunset which was comfortable.
There was a fridge, mini bar, very big safe, iron and ironing board, hair dryer and beverage tray in the room. Personal taste but we didn't like the coffee.
Good sized bathroom. Towels medium quality but fine.. not overly large the bath towel. The bath had been replaced by a very large shower.. it was fine but not having a bath would stop me returning if I was in the city for more than a couple of days. Nice toiletries.
Buffet breakfast was superb! so much choice - assorted breads/pastries/hams/cheeses/omelettes - eggs cooked to order/ fruit juices/cereals/fresh fruit... hot bar of assorted breakfast items... it was impossible to resist.. we had huge breakfasts during our stay!!
We also had the afternoon coffee/tea/glass of sparkling wine and pastries/cakes in the foyer and enjoyed every bite! the choice was excellent and quality first class - our waitress was lovely.
The hotels location is one of the best you can get.... you can walk to everything from it easily and nothing is too far away. About a 15 min walk to the Parliament, 25 mins up to the Fisherman's Bastion and 8 mins to the wonderful covered fruit and vegetable market.
Our friends ate in the Peppers restaurant both evenings and said it was excellent in choice, quality and service.
Highly recommend the Marriot.
