We spent four nights here. The hotel is beautiful -- great location, beautiful lobby, beautiful rooms and a very nice spa area with a pool, sauna, jacuzzi, etc..
The hotel is easily the nicest hotel in the city and worth it. Prior to coming to Budapest, we also considered places like the Sofitel, Intercontinental and Kempinski, but we're so glad we sprung for the Four Seasons. Sofitel and Intercontinental are also on the river, but the buildings are modern and ugly. Kempinski is on a busy shopping road. Particularly in a city with so many beautiful buildings, it was nice to be able to stay in one of them (and a very historic one at that).
Our only complaints were minor -- the standard rooms are small, and the concierge could have been better. We asked the concierge for help figuring out good day trips outside of the city, and they gave us a guide for generic bus tours. To visit the memento park, they suggested a kitschy tour on a Travant. It was only after reading the Rick Steeves guidebook that we learned there were personal guides available. I was surprised that at an exclusive hotel like the Four Seasons, they wouldn't understand that travellers would prefer smaller, more authentic and personal experiences. To ensure that you get the most out of your Budapest trip, pick up a copy of the Rick Steeves guidebook. I've never used one, but his walking tours were amazing, and he's got a few names of guides that he has personally used.
