Reviewed 22 June 2011

The first impression to the hotel is that it is a beautiful buiding. I stayed for the 2 nights. The suite is enormous. The bathroom is exceptionally big. But there is water leak behind the shower. I heard that the building was originally a domitory for the staff of New York Insurance, and not intended as a hotel room so the rooms were exceptionally big by today's standard.

The lobby is great a historically view, specially at night with lights on. The restaurant which offered another great view of the historical building provided some of the best food we ever tasted in Budapest. The reception, which doesn't look like a reception, are not always manned by someone.

The neighbourhood is just acceptable, a bit far away from the river Danube and from Andrassey Street and Varci Street. There is not any decent shopping available nearby. So you have to take a taxi to go anywhere. Comparing to Four Seasons, Sofitel and Inter- Continental which are by the river on room quality and that I also stayed, Boscolo is a better choice based on similar price. But then you have to travel by taxi every time you go out. And taking taxi in Budapest is tricky. We were told that hailing a taxi in the street could cost more than calling for one so we never hailed one. And that those taxi not operated by the few listed companies are like gangsters who would rip you off. Probably a legacy from the communist regime.

Breakfast is served on 1st floor. Though selection is limited it does offer hot fried eggs and omlette, however, the cook doesn't seem like a professional.

So depending on the purpose of your visit, if you are looking for everything within walking distance, you should look for those by the river. If you are taking a taxi wherever you go then Boscolo is a good choice.

Dear Valued Guest "CLau888",

Thank you very much for your taking your time to post your feedback on Tripadvisor.com regarding your stay with us at Boscolo Budapest.
I am delighted that the our hotel won over you and you are absolutely right, the building itself was built in 1894 as the Budapest Head Office of New York Life Insurance Company. The property is a monumental sight in Budapest and that is true that the rooms are not all the same and above avarage size compared to other hotel rooms.
I would kindly like to assure you that there are several reliable taxi companies in Budapest who provide very good service. Certainly our colleagues are at your service 24 hours a day to provide exceptional service.

With kind regards,

Kinga ENGELBRECHT - General Manager

While this hotel is not as well located as some others, it more than makes up for it with its sumptious decor. The cafe is excellent, with great food and the rooms are are both large and elegant.

What an amazing time we had at this gorgeous hotel! If you want a place that will bring you memories to last a lifetime; this is it! From the cafe with the most delicious coffees you can imagine, to a staff that goes above and beyond to assist you (I'm talking to you, Aaron at the Front Desk!!) - we couldn't have asked for more. Five-star service from all the staff - we felt we made friends we'll have forever. The rooms are pure luxury - so modern and unique in contrast to the old-world elegence of the lobby. We were just reviewing our photos and saying to ourselves, "Can you believe we ate breakfast every day in that opulence??" Treat yourself to this unique and beautiful property - you won't regret it (actually, you won't ever want to leave!!).

I've never seen this much Marble in any 5 Star hotel.
It is stunning! The rooms are also fabulous & very spacious.
Would stay here again in a heartbeat!!
Restaurant is even more beautiful than hotel but too pricey.

I loved this hotel. It's like staying in a historical building, but with hotel amenities...you are connected to a great dessert spot (NY Cafe) and just a few blocks from the shopping district. it was a about 10-15 minute walk to the river but if the weather is nice it's not bad at all.

The hotel itself is awesome, rooms are beautiful and staff was very friendly...almost too friendly (i.e. going well above and beyond to help you even if it's not necessary).

The key though was the awesome spa, pool and massage. I had one of the best massages of my life - it was a perfect end to the trip.

Overall, i liked this place and would stay again.
