"Great view, great location" InterContinental Budapest Tip by vpatui

InterContinental Budapest, Budapest: 3,011 reviews and 19 photos

First, if you just thinking about going to Budapest...Go! It's fantastic.

We upgraded to a River view club room and it was worth it. The view is the most spectacular view across the Danube to the Palace. Rooms are on the small side, but well appointed with mini-bar. They're not tiny, just small.

Internet service is very expensive ($32/day) but free in the club lounge, where many use the two free workstations, or you can bring your laptop and un-plug on of their workstations and plug your laptop in. The lounge serves high quality breakfast, snacks during the day, and wine and champagne in the evening. Best club I've used.

We arrived late on a Saturday night and were awoken by the sound of a hammer-drill in the ceiling above our room at 10:00 Sunday morning. Thank god they didn't start earlier. This would be repeated twice more during the week. (think of a mini jack-hammer in the ceiling).

Thursday morning there was no hot water, although it was fixed quickly.

Maid service was sometimes spotty. One time they left the dirty coffee cups for us, and the mattress was HARD! Which didn't bother me over much, but drove my wife crazy. There is a bottom sheet and you are given two very nice comforters with duvet covers as your top sheet. No problem staying warm. (This is in December, so it was cold outside)

Pros: Great location, right next to Tram line, beautiful views, small hotel, clean and well maintained. Staff very nice and knowledgable, any problems were fixed quickly.

Cons: Spotty Maid service, maybe some maintenance issues.

Unique Qualities: Fantastic views. Great location. Wonderful staff. Walking distance to a number of very interesting sights. (In fact, most anything in Budapest is within walking distance if you don't mind walking)
