Superb location on banks of Danube. High quality accommodation and excellent service. Reception can be very chaotic at times with the arrival of river cruise people. but just avoid these times .[Less]
Location .... View !!
With a proper upgrade the view was just amazing and unforgettable.[Less]
best hotel in Budapest
It's easy to claim 'the best hotel in Budapest'. What do I mean?
-the hotel is the old Forum which I used to stay in during the 1980's. the fact that I recognised staff from that time is proof that[More]
the organisation is doing something very right to retain staff.
-the location, in the heart of the river side of Pest, is unbeatable. I had a room with a river view, which I would always recommend
-the breakfast staff as SO friendly it's almost unbelievable. They recruit bright young english speaking staff and the buffet breakfast is an absolute pleasure.
-sadly one now has to wear bathing costume for the sauna, which feels rather weird because during the communist times it was mixed naked! but in communist times there were fewer american and arab guests and I suspect the hotel had to accommodate everyone.
-my room was a junior suite which i booked way in advance -thereby getting a truly great deal including breakfast. [Less]
