“fantastic arcitechture, good location, great value”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

I recently spent 2 nights here while venturing through some Eastern European countries. The renovations to the lobby/NY Cafe are outstanding. The hotel is in a nice central location for easy access to both sides of the River. We were traveling with a new puppy who was also welcomed with open arms. The staff was very accommodating. Our initial room was a little too warm for us (and our puppy) and did not have a window we could open. The staff offered us a different room with a window we could open to help ease the heat. This was very much appreciated and not something the staff was obligated to do but made our stay much more enjoyable. It was no fault of theirs, it was just unusually warm in the city while we visited and you cant just turn on the "a/c" for the whole building in the middle of winter.
We ate dinner in the restaurant one evening and were treated to some of the best tasting steaks. The waitstaff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us, always very attentive but not hovering.
I would easily recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Budapest.

We had been offered a present of a weekend in Budapest, the highlight being a stay in the cool Buddha Bar hotel. But on arriving there, we found out that our room was suffering from a problem and so was unavailable and it was only because the management of the Buddha Bar chose this hotel that we ended up staying there. While we generally do indeed prefer the design-led hotels like the Buddha Bar, we ended up having an excellent stay at the Boscolo. It is completely over the top in its decoration with lots of gilded and painted ceilings, panelled rooms, marble in the lift and so on-not really our scene but it all worked so well that we did not regret missing out on the Buddha Bar at all. The staff were uniformly excellent, charming and helpful, remembering our names almost immediately and trying their best (in excellent English) to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Typical of the service was their sending a maintenance man to sort out our air conditioning at 2000 on a Saturday evening. Not many places would do that.

We ate a few times in the hotel, both in the café and the main restaurant. The meal in the latter was quite exceptional, equal to the best on offer in London, eg, Petrus where we ate earlier this month, but at half the price. The dishes were modern takes on traditional Hungarian dishes and were accompanied by the sommelier's selection of local wines.

The café also was lovely. We ate fresh home pasta for lunch and found it just right.

So, do not be put off by the grand scale of the hotel, it is a delight.

This hotel is located in an historical, eclectic style building, built in the late 19th century. It is close to the metro station, and just in front of the tram stop. Connections with any part of the city are easy, fast, and safe. Breakfast is served in the famous and beautiful “New York Café”, with well restored, painted beautiful ceilings and furniture. The hospitality at the reception was great: very kind personnel, open in answering all our questions, good while suggesting restaurants. We have had an upgraded room: ample, silent, equipped with shower and bath. The quality of the breakfast is on line with similar class hotels, the internal, covered, court is a good place where to relax while listening to the piano music. Our only remarks were related to the spa facilities – probably too small. Also, the new year’s dinner served at New York cafè, despite the quality was very good, ended too early (10 pm). Despite these comments, I really recommend this Boscolo Hotel as an excellent stay in Budapest.

The buildling is a wonderful place by itself, peaceful musical atmosphere and sophisticated cousine bring you a hundred years back.
Amazing hotel which can anyone disregard of a sort of a trip enjoy; it will be one of the many impressions about Budapest which you take away with you.

It is not expensive for a moment in a palace, so, it definitely worths its money (even less expensive than I would consider for such a place).

Room Tip: Some rooms are in the building inside the yard which are connected to the main building by corridors...

We have an amazing time at this hotel.
We were in the new part in the back.
But the main one is amazing as well, it's old but we can still feel the magic coming from this building.
It has a great place in Budapest, it's near everything. We pretty much walked the whole time.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the main building

If I ever come back to Budapest will stay only in Boscolo! When I just entered the hotel I was amazed by the luxury interior and staff friendliness. They made me feel welcome and provided with all necessary information about the hotel and local area. The room was spacious, light and clean, with a big bathroom and beautiful lustre :)
Breakfast was for extra charge but it's worthy as it's held in New York Caffe, one of the most trendy places in Budapest.
I also had a chance to enjoy spa with it's swimming pool and sauna. Would also recommend to take some spa treatment as the prices are reasonable and the treatment is great.
Getting around: metro station is just across the street. I took a ticket for 3 days but never used it, you can reach everything by foot. It's only 20 min walk from the Hotel to Danube.

I didn't want to leave this beautiful city...mostly because of the hotel:))

Take a chance and enjoy it!

My wife and I loved our stay at this hotel. From the moment we arrived we experienced outstanding service. I had requested them for an upgrade of the room since we were travelling for our honeymoon. On arrival, I was told that we had already been upgraded. So it was a great start after the long hours of travelling.
We were then taken to our room. The room itself was very large and spread across nicely, the bed was supremely comfortable and the bathroom was also very spacious.
The staff was friendly and very helpful and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. They also gave us some great recommendations of places and restaurants, cafes, bars to visit since it was the first time for us in Budapest.
The buffet breakfast served at the New York Cafe is one of the most beautiful cafes one will come across the globe. Its opulence is what really stands out. The hop on - hop off buses also stop at the hotel to show the tourists this absolutely magnificient cafe. It also offers outstanding choice and is the perfect way to start your day. We loved this hotel and will stay here again.
