Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frodo 10 Awesome view , great location.
We chose the Intercontinental based on its location, views, and reviews and facilities . It rated really highly for location, views from the river side , and also most importantly staff friendliness and care.
We chose the hotel for a joint 50th birthday , taking 2 of our children along.
ALL our expectations were exceeded. We paid to be upgraded to a higher floor room and boy was it worth it . Absolutely awesome view of Buda Palace, Chain Bridge and Fishermans Bastion, beautiful from first light to nighttime when fully illuminated with a wide sill to sit on and soak up the view. The staff were ALL helpful and attentive and special mention to all the lovely waiting staff who greeted and paid such care to us each morning( we stayed 5 nights) and the Doormen who greeted us so well.The restaurant overlooks the river and Palace. The breakfast was excellent from full cooked , specially prepared omelettes to order , , cheeses , breads , cereals and even a Japanese section with rice , miso soup , noodles and baked salmon. The only suggestion would have had a fresher selection of prepared fruit . It all looked mainly stewed / processed.
The spa looked great although we didn't use, the staff helpful , a lovely pool rarely busy with sauna and steam room, all very clean as were locker rooms and a well stocked gym.
We were so pleased to have chosen this hotel and would stay here again . We would thoroughly recommend the Intercontinental .

We had a fantastic time in Budapest!
This was made even better with a super stay in this hotel. All the staff were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Our room on the 8th Floor was very comfortable and had a stunning view. We could not fault anything and will definitely return. Thank you very much indeed.

Spent 3 excellent nights at Intercontinental during a conference in Budapest in March 2014. Besides the dream location on the banks of the Danube with stunning views, the hotel impressed me with its excellent upkeep and warm and friendly service, generally in short supply in upmarket European hotels. The street level breakfast room with trams passing by beyond the glass window added to its charm, backed up by the superb breakfast buffet. Would love to come back for a holiday with my family to this place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simon44 Anniversary stay
My wife and I had our twentieth wedding anniversary at the hotel.
This river view from our room on the fifth floor was truly memorable and was one of the defining experiences of our stay. This is not to detract from all the other aspects of the hotel. We found the location ideal for all our tourist requirements. It would be exceptionally difficult to find anything remotely ordinary about the level of customer service. All staff from door personnel,reception to bar and restaurant were very friendly,courteous and highly motivated to satisfy all our requests.
The breakfast was a tourist feast with huge choice. The serving and waiting staff were ever attentive, polite and supremely efficient.
We had a wonderful time in a lovely city, at times the history proved very sad but we will forever remember what a wonderful stay we had at this hotel. I have now promised my wife never to economise on a room with a view again.
I would recommend to any reader of this review to upgrade to a river view it at all possible.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Music and Dance Excellent views over the Danube
As part of the Ambassador programme we were upgraded to a suite, which was fantastic. We had a very comfortable bedroom and a sitting room with excellent views over the danube. The staff were all very helpful, in particular the staff in the bar/lounge area where we tended to eat when we came in from concerts couldn't do enough for us. We are already booked in to go back in August for the National Day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GJB880 Good Location,Great Club Lounge
After having been delayed on our flight for 5 hours and arriving to the hotel at 04.00am we discovered anomalies with our room bookings. This is where hotels can either make or break your stay - the staff at the Intercon Budapest MADE our stay!
We were shown to available rooms for our first night and upgraded to a suite and river view rooms for the remainder of our stay. Thank you to all the staff, especially Laszlo for taking care of us so efficiently.
The Club Lounge is large and welcoming with a great section of snacks throughout the day and a couple of hot dishes/salads with the evening drinks. The staff were fantastic, helping with reservations, directions and taking care of our general well-being.
We will certainly be staying again.

We had a warm welcome at the Intercontinental, the staff were fantastic and very friendly. We had a river view room and the view of the Danube was beautiful. The concierge desk gave some great recommendations of places to eat. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast choices were vast and well stocked. If I visit Budapest in the future I would certainly stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enola2014 Best view to the river Danube
When thinking of Budapest Intercontinental I could imagine only best words.
The hotel is marvelous. Rooms are spacious, cosy and very clean. Breakfast is perfect - both food and service. View to the river we have from the room was probably the best in the city.
Quite satisfied with our visit and staying - will definitely return back some day.

WE ARE FREQUENT TRAVELERS. INASMUCH AS WE APPRECIATE THE ADVANTAGES OF A GOOD HOTEL, WE TEND NOT TO OVERPAY AS WE SPEND MOST OF OUR TIME OUTSIDE THE HOTELS, EXPLORING. HOWEVER, THIS IS ONE OF THOSE CASES WHERE LOCATION, VIEW AND SERVICE REALLY MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE AND WE ARE VERY GLAD WE CHOSE THIS PROPERTY FOR THIS EXPERIENCE.

The view of the castle from the Danube facing rooms is fantastic and the rooms are really good. I have been coming here for several years now and it is a great hotel, in a great location with really good staff. Having stayed in many of the worlds great cities, this hotel is easily my favourite city hotel.

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.
