My girlfriend (now Fiance) and I stayed at Hotel Hungaria over New Year where I had planned to propose in Budapest on New Year's Eve. Before getting to the hotel it was almost impossible to communicate with the hotel to try and arrange the perfect trip by seeing if any extras were available.
However, upon arriving at the hotel, we were both greeted by extremely efficient and approachable staff who remained discreet about the pending engagement at all times. When we got to the room, we had automatically been upgraded to a suite and were greeted by a complimentary selection of sweets, savouries, and bottles of water. The room was spacious and spotless and provided the perfect setting for the prosposal before heading off to join in the New Year celebrations in Oktogon. I can't say how grateful I am to the staff for making the perfect trip!
The Hotel itself is ideally located near to one of the two main Train Stations if you wish to travel further afield, and two Metro Stations if you don't fancy the 25minute walk to the Danube. The Hotel was also within walking distance of Oktogon, which was one of the quieter and more informal locations in the city where locals saw in the New Year.
I would have rated the Hotel Hungaria 5/5 but all public areas are extremely tired, and the breakfast service was far from 4* rated. Tables weren't cleared at all and the breakfast buffet station was rarely restocked. We found ourselves looking elsewhere for Breakfast on subsequent mornings.
Overall, I would like to thank everybody at the Hotel Hungaria for making our trip so special and we will definitely be staying there again!
