Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by marge99 WIFI Access was not free
I was very surprised to find out that WIFI access was not free to hotel guests. I was told that if I wanted to come down to the bar for a drink I could use the WIFI there. Starbuck and McDonald's offer free WIFI. For this very reason I do not recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EAP2013 Disappointing service
Booked two days reward stay at Intercontinental Budapest. I have arrived late afternoon, the valet at the valet parking did not allowed me to park in front of the hotel to check in and he sent me directly to the underground parking.
After 10 minutes of elevator waiting time we carried all the luggage from the underground parking at the lobby using the only one elevator that is servicing both the parking and the hotel .....
At the check is as a Platinum member I was told that I was "upgraded" into a room with Danube view but still , a standard room ....
Also I was trying to use the Intercontinental Club for the business center access and I was denied .When I was asking the reason I was told that I have to pay 70 euros for access...??!! I asked the concierge what is going on and he said that he will do me a favor and give me permission to use the computer and the printer at the business center ....Disappointing...
Outstanding good services at the SPA center and the room service

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LT17 Concierge service fantastic
The hotel was in a fantastic location, dental to all the historical spots, and a great stroll along the river Danube.
The conceierge staff were amazing, and friendly and happy to help us with changing money, suggestions of things to do. Thank you for the suggestion of the restaurant the first night and also the dinner and dancing the second night.
Also before arriving in Budapest I contacted the concierge service and I got an email back promptly and all my questions answered before my arrival . Just brilliant.
We had a fantastic time in Budapest, and the room was clean and comfortable and an amazing view of the Danube and castle district.
We would recommend this hotel to friends and certainly stay with you all again.
Thank you staff for making our stay amazing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dumfries1 Brilliant Hotel
We stayed in the InterContinenal Hotel in August for seven nights. This hotel has a magnificent view across the Danube. We were met by the porter who took charge of our cases, (he was very charming and polite). The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and there was always plenty of the reception staff on. There was four lifts so you didn't have to wait long to get to the floor you wanted. The bedroom was a good size and clean, we were on the ninth floor and it was very quiet we always got a goodnights sleep. The bathroom was clean and there were plenty toiletries. On the first floor there's a beautiful decorated Cafe, also on the first floor is the swimming pool and spa. The sauna and steam room were very well maintained, as were the changing rooms, I couldn't fault them, the cleanliness was brilliant. At breakfast there was great selection of cooked and continental foods, something for everyone. I would highly recommend this hotel. If I come back to Budapest I will definitely use this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JB11 Great service and location
Staff were excellent, especially front desk who checked us in late at night after a long day of travel and made sure we had everything we needed to relax and get some rest before being up early to explore the city the next day. Room had an amazing view overlooking the river, and the location is great for seeing both halves of the city..
Restaurant was fabulous.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DarioM Junior suite has an old bed
I stayed in junior suite (room 811 or 815? I don't remember). The view from the room is excellent. Especially during the night. Bathroom is ok, but the bed was very old. The materass is old and sleeping in two people brings both people to the center of the bed. This is not acceptable from a junior suite. I stayed in thesame hotel in a standard room and the bed was better and bigger (king bed). Furthermore, it is not acceptable that internet is NOT complimentary.

Great place to stay for few days and contemplate amazing view on the river and castle. Close to most of the atractions.
Restaurant and food looks good, but tastes just fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NicknameNickname Best location in Budpest for a short stay
The area is a tourist attraction, par excellence, but one where there is nothing Hungarian. It is an excellent place for a first visit, but is so devoid from local authentic culture that I don't believe it warrants a second visit.
Having said that, the above comment has nothing to do with the InterContinental or its staff; both are commendable and of high quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zita the best hotel to stay in Budapest
This is the best hotel to stay in Budapest . The view to the river is is amazing. Rooms are wonderfully furnished with very comfortable bed. Rooms very clean and always maintained and well serviced. Staff very friendly and helpful and do their best to assist you. Wonderful spa / swimming pool, sauna and steam room for guests to use and its very clean. In terms if location it has great views to the Danube especially if you get river view room. Close to all transport if needed although you do not need to use transport as you can walk to most tourist attractions. I highly recommend this hotel my kids loved it .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by YMinCA Internet availability
Although I researched this hotel before I stayed there, someone gave incorrect info. There is "free" internet access in the lobby. However, you have to buy drinks in the bar to get an access code. Somehow, that doesn't fit my definition of free. Of course, the bar waiters never seemed to be around when I was ready to leave so I could pay for my drinks, therefore if I were dishonest, I could have simply walked away and had free drinks and free access.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Metroglass Clean and Perfect Location
Lovely hotel, close to everywhere. We book the river view room. The perfect view to the castle and chain bridge, especially in the evening. Our room is clean. Need improvement for the knowledge of concierge team members. We asked the location of Duna Park cake shop that shown in concierge guide video. But not all the staff know the location, someone only can informed us the roughly location (not a detail address).

bad experience because my siuite was very - very small.
at this time there were a lot of other more large. so i was a victim of front office staff (maybe manager). I don' t know the reason.
another reason it was because they clean my room after 4 p. m. so there was not reason to visit for housekeeper my room the afternoon #agaiin#.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Justus82 Nice stay in Budapest
I booked a two night weekend stay. As RA got upgraded to a river view room. It was hot that weekend and after a long day with a lot of fencing and travelling it was a nice cool place to freshen up. Service was friendly. Ice brought very quick to the room. My transfer to the airport was perfectly organised. The location is really good. I will return!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by osha Splendid!
We took a suite (family of 4) and received great service, including entrance to the lounge which was very useful and pampering. Cleanliness was top notch.
The view is unforgettable at all times of day. The location is one of the best. The concierge was always helpful.
Although it is on the more expensive side in Budapest, it's definitely worth it!

During hot season, hotel's great facilities helped my visit at Budabest much. Staff was very helpful e.g. to find and book good restaurants for us. Scenery was outstanding and breakfast delicious. I recomend this for all! :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yorkshireman Superb view.
The rooms with the river view are certainly worth paying for. The image will stay etched in my mind for a long time - a classic view to rival any major capital city.
The staff were delightful, always willing to help and offer advice on any tourist topic.
The room was 4 star, because the bathroom was a little on the small side. Otherwise superb.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrsBox Great hotel.... but
This was the best Intercontinental we stayed in on our trip and would have rated 5 stars except that they still charge for wifi. They do give you 2 free hours if you buy a drink in the bar but what a hassle to get the code. Is it worth it to them to make life difficult for their guests and lose a star?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nluvwithBudapest best stay in Europe
After staying at other similarly priced hotels in other countries, we thought we'd died and gone to heaven when we arrived here. Every staff member was tops - knowledgeable and went out of their way to help. Our room was comfortable with a fantastic view of Buda. The air condition was not working properly in one of our rooms, but 5 minutes after making a call to maintenance, it was fixed and no one even had to come to our room. The breakfast buffet was astounding. There's something to suit everyone's needs. The staff at this hotel clearly understands the value of good service. I would definitely stay here if ever in Budapest again. I was so pleased that I would search out other Intercontinental hotels in other cities.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Canuckys One of the best hotel experiences we have had
The InterContinental which has the most amazing view over the Danube is a magnificent place to stay especially if you are staying a few days. Everything is designed for your ease, comfort and enjoyment.
Budapest is a fabulous place to see and the InterContinental certainly does not disappoint

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff45 Bed too soft. Needs replacing
5 star hotels have a jug in the room so tea may be made.
5 star hotels allow cases to be opened sideways as they are presently designed to do.
The bathroom light is poorly positioned for shaving. Ask you interior designer to shave there and avoid the shadow. Particular bad for shot sighted persons who are tall.
The side mirror is too low.
The Club facilities were good and Agnes was most helpful when my wife had need Of help.
There was confusion from the website I visited to choose the hotel.
It was not clear that not all Club rooms saw the river and that those that did were more expensive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Flaesb Danube views
Very close to the Danube River with spectacular views. Hotel was build in the 60s or 70s and has that vintage charm. It is not a new property.
Room rate was a bargain, but staff tried to "up-sell" me upon check in, doubling the room rate to allow lounge access. I declined.
There are quite a few restaurants nearby, and a stop for the tourist hop-on hop-off bus is very close. Location couldn't be better and I would highly recommend this hotel. Being a platinum ambassador probably helped getting me a great room, but it seems there is not a bad view room in the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VeghS Can't beat the view!
This is my new favorite hotel in Budapest. It cannot be more centrally located, having the famous Váci Street, Chain Bridge, and Bazilika all a short walk away. And nothing beats the view from your room overlooking the Danube and the Castle area on the other side. If you upgrade to the Deluxe room, your view will be angled so you also get the Chain Bridge in the same frame. Simply fabulous. The service is very good - they recognized me from the second stay on. While I usually do not eat big breakfasts, this is where I take an exception as their breakfast buffet deserves a try.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelNurse Outstanding staff
This hotel is located on the Danube River. The views from our river facing room were wonderful. Being able to watch the constant traffic on the river was very interesting; sightseeing boats, large barges, small personal craft, and cruise ships all made for wonderful photos. Our king room on the ninth floor gave us a great vantage point to see the Buda Castle across the river along with a few of the bridges. No outside noise could be heard even though a tram line stops directly beside the hotel. Breakfast choices were many and all we sampled were good. The hotel is located at the #2 tram line which connects with numerous other transport options that will get you almost anywhere you need to travel. Walking street with shops, restaurants, and street food located nearby and easily located. Great stay and already looking forward to returning. We were pleased with the level of service received, all staff we encountered greeted us with a smile and a hello. The staff in the club lounge exceeded our expectations; we had several questions during our stay and the club floor officer was able to answer each one quickly and correctly.
