The parlament hotel is a good choice for anyone need a central hotel in Budapest, in the old Pest, 5th district. Located just behind Szabadsag tér, is really close to the parlamenr building and the Duna river (about 10 minutes walking). Parlament hotel is stil my first choice every time I"m in Budapest, and I"m in Budapest about two times in a month. Smoking rooms are available on 5th floor. There is a little spa with a jacuzzi open till 10pm, a little sauna for about 5 person but no swimming pool. You can have a nice breakfast with international choices. So, good, clean, quite where you can have really nice sleep in the little but confortable rooms. Just a fault: no slippers available in the rooms, so bring it from your house : )

The Best Western Parlament (known as Parlament Hotel), is newly renovated hotel on a small street. The rooms (at least the one I stayed in) spacious with trendy furniture. The desktop is a little to small if you plan to work at your room, but other than that, it has enough space.

They offer a very good breakfast buffet and free water and coffee at the lobby lounge from 10 am to 5 pm, which is very nice.

The street where the hotel located is most of the time very quiet, however every 10-15 minutes a tram passes in the street, and if you are a light sleeper, it could be noisy to sleep in the rooms facing the street.

For me the only reason that will make me not stay in this hotel in the future is the lack of fitness room. They do have a very nice wellness room (e.g. sauna, jacuzzi etc.) but they don’t have any fitness equipment.

Overall, if you are looking for a very nice hotel in a decent price, this could be a good pick.

We have just returned from a 4 night leisure city break at the Hotel which we chose based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Our room was on the 3rd floor and noise from other guests or the street was never an issue. It was spotlessly clean and adequately furnished in a 'boutique ' style. Breakfast was excellent with a good variety and quality. At peak times the room can become a liitle cramped - but that is true of many hotels. All staff were friendly and helpful and the reception staff always made a point of greeting us as we came and went. There is free use of computers with internet access which was great for checking in and printing boarding passes for the return flight. The Wellness Centre was out of action for maintenance while we were there but this was not a big deal for us as we found plenty to see and do to occupy our 4 days. The Hotel is well positioned - easy walking distance from the Parliament ( good , free to visit ) and Danube and a pleasant stroll to the Chain Bridge. The comfortable bar with free hot and cold drink up to 5pm is a bonus , especially after a day of sightseeing. The Hotel offers to organise taxi transfers to/from the Airport - this worked really well .
We had planned a tour of the Opera House ( c£9pp ) but instead managed to get tickets for La Traviata for c£4 each - bargain
An earlier reviewer mentioned Pomo D'Oro restaurant - we ate there twice , great food , service and atmosphere at a reasonable price.
We also ate at the Strudel House of Pest on Oktober 6 St - this too was excellent and reasonably priced.
The Hop on Hop off buses are a good way to see all the sights - about £13pp for 2 days use

Room Tip: Can only comment on 3rd floor - this was fine

I stayed here for a couple of days in August, 2011. I had to switch rooms 3 times in 2 days. First the room was facing Kalman Imre St first floor and the noise level was high whenever there was a tram went by; then I switched to a room higher up in floors but there's not enough A/C and phone didn't work; the third room solved all those problems. But it was a hazzle to move 3 times! The elevator was extremely slow and small. The breakfast buffet was good, lots of choices. Front desk staff were very helpful as well.

We stayed for 3 nights in March. The hotel was easy to find, and a short walk/taxi from most recommended sites. The staff were really friendly and struck a good balance between being helpful and unobtrusive. Breakfast was ample and a good range of options. Everything was very clean. Design is modern. Our room had a high ceiling and large bathroom. The layout was a tiny bit cramped and the air con didn't seem to have much effect but temp outside was 22 degrees and it was comfortable in the room. I would book it again.

Very nice hotel in an old building very nicely renovated. Extremely friendly staff, always helpful and thoughtful. Free computers in the lobby ,free coffee tea all the time , even water bottles also free by the lobby.!!
The only complain is that the very nice and new shower had a button to transfer the water from the hand shower to the overhead shower and this was extremely difficult till almost impossible to use (in 2 rooms the same problem) They tried to "repair" it but it seems to be a basic problem with the model.
Out of that very good hotel for a very decent price (B&B )

Dear „Casey272”,

Thank you very much for staying with us at Hotel Parlament and for taking the time to recommend us here at TripAdvisor!
I am pleased to read that you liked our complimentary wellness area and you have found a little time to relax during your city break. It is great that you could take advantage of our central location as well and have enjoyed the nice area provided by the park of Szabadság Square.
We would be happy to have the opportunity to host you again next time if you visit our lovely Budapest!

With kind regards,
