Recently spent 4 nights in this hotel.
Location: The Kempinski is situated in central Pest which is a great place from which to begin exploring the city. The hotel is about a 30 minute taxi journey from Terminal 1. Most major tourist sites are within walking distance (Chain Bridge/Gellert Hill). The main metro station (Deak Ferenc Ter) , where all 3 lines intersect, is a one minute walk away. Central Pest is also excellent for bars and restaurants.
Hotel: The hotel is very nicely decorated and furnished. The lobby is large and bright, thanks to the glass frontage. The staff are friendly and attentive. The public areas are clean and there is a relaxed if somewhat sterile atmosphere throughout. The room was very clean and a good size (deluxe). The mini-bar was well stocked but very expensive (around €8 for a bottle of Evian) – steer clear unless you have deep pockets.
Food: The hotel has 3 restaurants; Italian, Hungarian & Bavarian. On the first night we decided to eat in the Bavarian restaurant. The food was mediocre but at least the atmosphere was relaxed and informal. Breakfast is expensive and to be honest nothing out of the ordinary. I suggest you do as the locals do, pop round to Vosmarty Ter (behind the hotel) and try the grilled sausage and mustard, an altogether better experience.
Health Spa: The spa facilities are very good although I agree with other reviewers who say the pool is lukewarm and too small. The sauna and steam area is well appointed, good showers, ice to help you cool down and a heated sitting area. All in all very good.
Other: There is free wi-fi available in the lobby, bars and restaurant areas, which was good. There is also wired access available in each room. I took the advice of another reviewer and asked the hotel to book the airport Zona taxi for the return journey.
Conclusion: Budapest is a wonderful city and you could do a lot worse than book a stay in the Kempinksi.
