The Continental Hotel Budapest is in a good location and the rooms and nicely decorated and clean. This could easily have been a 4 or 5 star review but for a few issues that unfortunately affected our stay. Our room was way too hot the entire time we were there - when we were in the room during the day we either opened the window or put the air conditioning on but unfortunately we couldn't do this at night because of the noise from the street and the fact that the air conditioning unit sounded like a jumbo-jet taking off. This resulted in being uncomfortably hot at night - with the windows closed and the air conditioning off the temperature was showing as 27 degrees at 1am, despite it being a relatively cold weekend in March.
Other issues were hearing a lot of noise from the corridor, breakfast being busy, and a staff member selling us tickets to a thermal baths at the wrong price which meant we had to pay extra when we got there. Not a big deal, but when we mentioned it to her so that she didn't make the same mistake again (she'd sold us weekend tickets at the week-day price) she just shrugged ans said "it's only a couple of extra Euros, it's fine" - clearly didn't care at all.
Hotel has the potential to be lovely, but is currently disappointing.More
