It was my second stay at this hotel. I think that this is the best option to stay in Budapest. The Danube view suite was big and comfortable, and the unforgettable view .... amaizing. Take the option with Club Lounge access! We were veeeeryyyy satisfy, the choice of food served for breakfast, lunch and diner, cold and hot drinks, choice of alcohol, all this was perfect. The staff at the Club from receptionists to the waiters - professional, friendly and helpfull. A special thanks to Mr Viktor, Mrs Agnesz and Krisztina!! The stay with you was fantastic! We'll be back soon, we must be!! Big thanks!

Stayed at this hotel many times during business trips. Will take my wife here this weekend for a total chill out following a busy Christmas period. Upgrade is great but as other reviews have mentioned shame lounge is not included. Visited Seoul last year and this was standard for gold ambassador members.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Platin Great view on river, bridge and Buda
Though looking a bit old fashion from outside the IC Budapest is a real 5* hotel in the heart of Budapest. On some pictures in the Internet it appears that the hotel would be located next to a high (industry) traffic bridge which is not true. It is perfectly located in the heart of Budapest directly at the Donau river and the romantic (Széchenyi Lánchíd) bridge. We had a suite with a fantastic view on the Donau and castle hill (National gallery, Matthias church).
Pool and SPA are OK, I have seen better and worse facilities at other IC city hotels. The club lounge is very comfortable and serves good food during the entire day and alcoholic drinks from 6pm onwards. The staff in the lounge was very service- and guest-oriented. The concierge staff was very helpful tool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dustoff413 Great room with a view!!!
Probably one of the best views in Budapest. You will pay for it though. We had to pay for an upgrade, usually given to us for free for being a platinum club member, but we were there for the New Years rush.
Our room was phenomenal. Couldn't have imagined a better view of the Buda Castle and Palace. Worth the money! Make sure to ask for a river-front room.
Staff were all very helpful and knowledgeable. The only other downside was the parking. Good luck finding any free parking around town. Your only option is the 8.000 forint (27€) per night onsite parking.
Overall we were very well pleased with out experience. Prime placement in Budapest.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Spatman Superior Room. River view. 23rd-30th December 2013
A very comfortable room with a wonderful view.
I feel that the price paid for a Superior room should reasonably include complimentary bottled mineral water.
My wife and I stayed for a week but our immediate reaction on arrival and unpacking was that there were only three small drawers and a modestly sized wardrobe, rather inadequate for a stay or more than a night ot two, particularly in the winter. There was sufficient space in the room for three more good sized drawers.
These few things apart I can highly recommend this hotel and would like to compliment all the staff for their excellent service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ari1906 Great room, great view and nice personnel
Being ambassador for a while I really enjoy the benefits of using the lounge club and getting the upgrade. This hotel in Budapest apparently opted for not giving access to the Lounge Club, which was unfortunate. The upgrade was really good and the personnel, congierge were very helpful and kind. Nice breakfast, nice gym, although the breakfast I had in Intercontinental HongKong was unbeatable !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IHGsupporter Convenient Location & Nice View
This was my second time of visiting Budapest. I knew the high rating Intercontinental hotel BUD had as well as so many good reviews, but from my strategic point of view, I stayed at another hotel, it was also good. However, the location & the view of the Intercontinental hotel BUD was the best of the best I found out after walking & looking around the city, so that I selected this hotel without any doubt nor considering of any other choice. As I rated, everything was perfect as expected. This is Intercontinental hotel and I can always expect the same quality of everything at any Intercontinental hotels. If you are not satisfied with other hotels or feel like missing something whenever you stay at any other hotels, try Intercontinental hotels. They are expensive ones but it is surely valuable, something worth paying for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jasper1999 The perfect luxury location in Budapest
A very pleasant and welcoming high quality hotel in the best location in the city with fantastic views over the Danube and the impressive buildings on the Buda side of the city as well as the bridges. Book a river view room to really appreciate the location and an even better view especially once darkness falls.
Enjoy a drink or lunch in the comfortable lounge bar area also with excellent views and attentive friendly staff.
5 minutes easy walk to many shops and good restaurants as well as seasonally the square that hosts the main Christmas market.
Stay here and you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FabRes Attention to details, amazing staff
I recently returned from a 4-night stay at this property, as IHG Ambassador I can testify to the value of the program: everything as advertised.
We had a room on the 7th floor, the view on the river was truly a breathtaking one and the staff, from reception, to concierge desk to housekeeping extremely friendly and professional.
Special mention goes to everybody working in the Club Lounge: you alone are worth another visit to this very nice hotel.
The only complaint would be related to the standard internet access service which is complimentary for IHG Rewards Club Members.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hamilton78 One of our favourite hotels
This is the third time we have stayed at Intercontinental Budapest and we will hopefully be back again as we always find it a relaxing and enjoyable experience. The location is excellent, the service is very good, and the hotel is a calm and welcoming retreat from the sometimes icy Budapest winter temperatures. The rooms are maybe not as luxurious or modern as some other 5 star hotels, but they are still very comfortable and we were fortunate enough to get upgraded to a room with a wonderful river view.

This hotel has everything right for me ... except for the bed, which is unfortunate because a good night's sleep would have made the difference to really make it a 5* experience.

I loved the view from my room at the 7th floor. The location of the hotel is excellent.
I would expect a bit larger room.
Breakfast is rather expensive (28 Euros) for the Hungarian standards.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mel2340 Perfect hotel in the perfect location
We have just returned from a magical 3 night trip and from the moment we stepped into our room (822) we were blown away by the beautiful views we were treated to. The hotel is clean and wonderfully comfortable with the nicest pillows I have ever slept on!! The staff were so helpful and so polite with everything we asked of them from advice on taxis to places to eat to borrowing an adapter to replace the one I had forgotten to pack. Nothing was too much trouble. My only slight moan would be that I think the cost of breakfast was quite steep so if you consider booking this hotel, and you should, get a rate that includes breakfast. On one final note I have to mention again how brilliant the staff were. On my return I realised I had forgotten to pack some of my clothes and one email later, they had very kindly told me they'd found them and would be posting them out to me at no charge. I was so grateful as the clothes are may maternity ones which I'd struggle without! A fantastic hotel and very highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BarneyS Superb stay in Budapest!
We were treated like special guests and every detail was attended to with efficiency, courtesy, and professionalism. Our room was an upgraded room with a beautiful view of the (green) Danube and the hotel location couldn't be beat. If we ever are fortunate to be able to visit this special place again we will surely stay at this hotel. Even car parking was available on the street nearby. This was truly a memorable experience and made our vacation extra special.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jas387 Wonderful location, helpful staff
We stayed for four nights recently at the Intercontinental Budapest, and were very happy with our choice.
The hotel is perfectly located near a lot of the main tourist sites.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable and a good size. The bathroom was a little on the small side, but was well equipped and also very clean.
We had to ask for some more pillows because it was difficult to sit up in the bed with the one that was provided for each guest, but they were brought quickly by staff.
We slept quite well, but the mattresses were slightly softer than we were used to. I suppose this is down to personal preference though, so it is hard to fault the hotel for that.
The restaurant and bar areas were great and there was an excellent selection at breakfast.
It is definitely worth paying the little extra for a room with a view of the Danube - the rooms have wonderful large windows and at night the view is absolutely stunning.
Our only complaints were that is is very expensive to purchase wifi to use in the rooms, although there is free wifi in the lobby. Also, there were only two English speaking TV channels available and they were difficult to access via the TVs menu which required me to scroll past adult movie choices. This wasn't a huge problem, but prompted questions from our children.
Despite this, I would definitely choose this hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KJRS Beautiful Room With A View
My husband & I stayed for three nights in a Superior Room With River View, and it was a wonderful experience. The room contained everything we could ask for, from the very comfortable bed and luxurious linens to the elegant bathroom to the incredible view of the Danube from our large window.
The included breakfast was also just perfect with so many items on the buffet. It was all so delicious.
In addition, the staff of the hotel could not have been more accommodating, friendly, and professional.
Without question, our experience at this hotel was fabulous.
