The location is great. But We did not have a view of the River:( The lobby and restaurant were nice. Our room was like a typical Holiday Inn-type room, in other words, not upscale. The bathroom was tiny. There were security men sitting on chairs in the halls of the 5th floor but no idea why. Would somebody really important be staying in this modest venue?
We had a 10 days family trip to Budapest and we chose this hotel as our base. Took 2 connected rooms with a magnificent view of the Danube and Buda Castle. We found the hotel very convenient, rooms were great, comfy beds and great location. Breakfast was nice with a variety of choices. It's right the hotel is not cheap and not 100% new but the service, the view, the comfy rooms and the location compensate for that. We had a great time.
We are on a Bucket List trip to EU celebrating our 49th Anniversary. This is on a Viking River Cruise. We came in early in order to enjoy Budapest, the City and all of the culture. Our Hotel is the InterContinental Budapest. Wonderful location and amenities. Viking has a block of rooms set aside which overlook the town but not the river. We requested and received an upgrade to the River View. The Front Desk Personnel were very accommodating and gave us one of the better rooms on the top floor. The room is very comfortable, clean and the windows are clean and not streaked thus affording a clear view of the fantastic scenery. The Staff has paid attention to every detail throughout the property as you would expect in a 5 Star Hotel. We were lucky enough to have Robert as our waitperson in the Corso Restaurant. Extremely professional. Over several trips for drinks and a meal, we got to know him on a personal level and have discussions around Family, Culture and enjoyed some good hearted bantering back and forth. We firmly believe the Hotel is simply a place to stay but the People make it a Great Place to Stay. The personnel at the InterContinental make this a Great Place to Stay. We will certainly return here on our next EU Adventure to Budapest.…
No sure who are those people who rate this hotel so highly. The have probably lived their whole life in some village and did not see any 5* hotels. To sum it up - NOT nice, very old (old furniture, all surfaces are scratched, etc), very outdated, an ugly building built by americans in the 70s. Ceiling height is 2,1 meters in the coridors and 2,3 meters in the rooms. Rooms are dwarf small, so are the bathrooms. The worst spa you may ever find in 5* - a very small pool, very small sauna and a very small turkish bath (very old of course), the latter was not operating due to "technical issues", but in reality the are just saving money. They find it normal to lie on booking sites that spa operating hours are 8am-10pm, but in reality its 8-8pm, so you won't have any evening relax. Breakfasts are standard, poor, not nice, not tasty. No fresh sqweezed juice. But don't worry, thay will bring you some crap from a just box and ensure that its a fresh one. In one word - that's fraud! This is a 4-star hotel, normally rated at 3,5-4 points. Its same stuff as if my grandma puts 2 michelin stars on her small cafe…
Viking River Cruises (disaster on the water) booked this hotel for our post-cruise excursion. Would have been nice if we had known that we were sharing the hotel with the Ecumenical Council of Churches (Rome Chapter, NAMBLA). Service non-existent as staff was fawning all over the geriatric cardinals. Broken coffee machine in the room. Walked out of breakfast, due to the chaos of the population of Rome (e.g. the Guys in Black) making an utter nuisance of themselves. Really enjoyed having to vacate my room at 1137, so the cleaners could actually do their job. I will never stay in this hotel again.
