Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big Kiwi So much more than just the best view in town!
Hi there !
I have just returned from 6 nights staying at the Intercontinental Budapest, and am very pleased to say it was the best hotel experience I have ever had.
Starting right from the initial welcome email from Timea at Reservations, the amazing hospitality and friendliness shown by all of the outstanding team at the hotel made for a very special experience all round. You got the impression the whole team is very proud of their hotel - and so they should be, it's easily the best in town.
That personal touch is hard to train, you either have it or you don't - and the Intercontinental Budapest team sure do have it.
By the way - the mesmerising view of the river, palace and bridge sure adds to the total package.
Thanks for a great time guys!
PS. The Sunday buffet lunch is one not to be missed if you are there in the weekend - unbelievable variety of local fare, including champas, vino and beers.

It was a great experience. The best location in city centre walking distance to most attractions. Spacious clean rooms. Very professional and helpful staff. It is highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gabriel LS What phenomenal courtesy and service
This is my third stay at this hotel and it keeps improving.
The room (clean and kept clean) was outstanding (albeit the bathroom a bit small), beds comfortable, facilities all what one would expect of a 5 star hotel.
What crowned it off was the total courtesy shown at all times by ALL staff, from doorman, porter, reception, concierge, restaurant, etc.
Added to this was the exemplary service at all levels, where nothing was too difficult and there was an absolute commitment to ensuring their guests were looked after properly.
I could not recommend this hotel highly enough and will return here every time I revisit Budapest.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TheBusyTraveller Beautiful Hotel but very noisy
The Intercontinental Hotel is beautiful hotel in a great location. It is quite modern with lots of facilities and welcoming staff. I had a lovely room on the 6th floor over looking the river with great views of the buildings opposite and the chain bridge. Unfortunately at night time this is rather noisy and you can hear the traffic and trains outside which are fairly loud. Worst of all is the sound proofing between rooms which is almost non existent. I was kept awake for hours by by noisy neighbour who snored all night. I could then hear his early morning conference calls from 6am the next day. I may as well have been in his room. The staff were very nice but not very efficient. We had to wait quite a while to get a beer while sitting outside. The breakfast was really good and fresh with great choice. Bring your ear plugs and you will really enjoy this hotel!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Arny0205 Quality Hotel on the Danube
Very good hotel right on the river danube with views to the Buda Castle and with good access to everything central in Budapest.The only reason why I did not put 5 stars was the cost of the breakfast at 27 Euros was overly priced.The staff were excellent and spoke very good english.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zingasm Best hotel views in Budapest
The reasons for staying here are clear: Best views of the Danube, friendly and helpful staff, and central location. We arrived during the first beautiful spring weekend and were given a room with a terrific view of the river. It was like watching a live painting, changing with the light of the day. The staff, especially Gabor at the front desk, were very friendly and helpful with the usual questions. They made various dinner reservations and offered advice that helped us plan our stay.
What could have been better? The design, decor and furnishings are very outdated, particularly in the guest rooms. It falls short of the expectations for the Intercontinental brand. There was also a peculiar smell in the hallway of our bedroom floor, perhaps that of a carpet powder covering up some previous aroma? The bathroom was quite small and the curved bottom shower tub treacherously slippery without any tub mat. Finally, it would have been nice to be granted access to the lounge as an Ambassador Platinum member.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Cumbrians Brilliant breakfast & very helpful staff
My husband & I stayed here for our wedding anniversary and loved it. The room was spacious, very comfortable and clean. The room amenities and toiletries were excellent. The breakfast was brilliant & the choice of food was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were very attentive without being intrusive.
We had a meal at the hotel for our anniversary and were given a slice of cake each, free of charge, to celebrate which was a lovely touch.
The hotel is well situated for exploring both Buda & Pest & the restaurant & bar overlooks historical Buda which is breathtaking especially at night when the buildings & bridges are lit up. We would definitely recommend it

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 .

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.

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.

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!
