Hotel Zenit Budapest Palace
Ranked #28 of 334 Hotels in Budapest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 July 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed our stay at Zenit, the location was great, close to the river and pedestrian areas filled with restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast staff always made sure they soda goodbye and have a nice day, and the reception staff answered any questions we had and gave us an envelope full of tour brochures when we arrived. The wifi was free and had a great signal.
Breakfast was one of the best spreads we have seen-eggs cooked to order, along with bacon, sausages etc, then a whole variety of cold meats and cheeses, croissants filled with tomato and lettuce and egg, yoghurts, cereals etc.
The hotel is within easy walking distance of the blue and yellow metro lineswould definitely stay here again.

Had a last minute change in plans where I had to stay in Budapest for 6 additional days. I did not want to stay that long in the hotel I was in so went to Expedia and noticed decent hotel in a great location for less than $ 90 USD/night (no breakfast). Just for curiosity I looked at their website (Zenit is a chain of hotels, most which are located in Spain) and price was 2-1/2 times the Expedia rate. So I gave it a shot and was pleased. Reception was quite helpful to me when I asked about best bath houses and other attractions as they do not have a concierge.

The rooms were a little sparse...would have been nice if they had an extra chair in the room because if you or your partner are working at the desk the only other place to sit is on the bed.

All in all I was pleased.

Room Tip: Get a room off of the main street.

Dear guest:


Your feedback is really appreciated. Thank you for your comment and your advices. We consider the option of the 2nd chair as a good possibility for the future, I am just afraid that it can reduce the space in the room.

If sometime you come back to Budapest, It will be a pleasure to welcome you again.


My best wishes.

This hotel is one of the best we have stayed in! Staff is very friendly and no question is too much. Breakfast is superb: a lot of choice and your eggs are freshly prepared just the way you like it. The hotel is very clean and the design is so zen and very creative. We stayed there for 5 nights and we always discovered new things about it.
It doesn't overlook the Danube, but who cares when stunning views on the river are only about 2 minutes walk!
I would go back to this hotel in an instant. I recommend it to everybody.

Room Tip: We had a room on the top floor (4th) not on the street side. Very quiet.

I have been there with my boyfriend for three nights in July. The hotel is really great: the location in perfect for visiting the city and you can easily and shortly reach every part of the city centre by foot. It is on the Danube, near Vaci Utca and really close to the metro station of Line 3 (the one that takes you to the bus 200E, the one that goes to the airport). Some really nice restaurants and shops are in the neighborhood. Our room was new, big and full of light, the bathroom had a really big shower and a lot of bath products. It was really clean too, like the other spaces of the hotel. We also tried the room service: it was really fast and the food was excellent. At the end of our holiday the recepsionist gave us a card that guarantees a discount in all the Zenit hotels.
I would totally recommend this hotel I will go back there for sure next time I visit Budapest.

We enjoyed our stay and were especially impressed with how polite and helpful the reception staff were. The hotel is in an excellent location for visiting both Buda and Pest, right next to the river and close to two bridges.

We stayed for 5 nights. The room was clean, large enough. It's centrally located and still very quiet. There was absolutely no noise from outside. We could hear the TV from the next room though. They also have very friendly personnel.

We stayed at the zenit hotel in budapest from June 21-24. The hotel was in an excellent location close to major attractions and public transit. This hotel provided the best service and we would go back in a heartbeat. From taking responsibility for a mixup in transfer cost to providing detailed and thorough information on budapest attractions and booking attractions. The most impressive being mailing my daughter's doll that she forgot at the hotel back to Canada free of charge! We will definitely stay again at this hotel and would recommend for others as well. We had a family room for our family of 4 that was an excellent price. The room was actually 2 rooms with 2 bathrooms. Loved this hotel and staff!
