      Historical Traveler Reviews art'otel budapest

      Definitely Recommended


      A group of 10 of us stayed here in May 2004. We booked it at a great rate through Expedia. The hotel was one of the best we've stayed in on our annual weekends away.

      The rooms were huge!...maybe a little badly planned as it took about 2 minutes to walk from the bedroom to the bathroom (which were small in comparison to the amount of room available!) but overall it was great value for money.

      Staff were friendly but not overly helpful. The location is great for exploring Buda...the Castle area, and two spas are close by (which have to be done...some of us didn't and regretted it when we saw how relaxed and refreshed the other looked!). Metro is nearby to get into Pest. We walked a's easy to do if you're into walking as the different areas aren't hugely far apart.

      My friends were staying at the Meridien at the same time, which we visited. We all definitely preferred the look and feel of the Art O'tel.

      Breakfast was good - wide selection...though it does get busy there. Great thing about the hotel is that there are a lot of people staying there but you wouldn't know it until you hit breakfast!

      Excellent view, location could be better


      Excellent view. Good location for exploring Castle Hill district....not as good for exploring Pest where most of the points of interest are. Breakfast buffet was pretty good.

      Wonderful Hotel


      Very clean and nice hotel. rooms are great, although we too had the same problem that another reviewer did with airconditioning. staff at the reception is much more helpful than room service or house keeping (house keeping was not willing to admit there was something wrong with the air conditioning, but the reception people actually got it fixed while we were out for the day). it's location in Buda, is about a 15 minute walk to where all the action is i.e. Pest. But its a very nice walk across the chain bridge. do not get the hotel to arrange pick-up from the airport as it is double of what would cost by airport minibus which is just as convenient. reception staff spoke english (which you will realise in budapest can be a problem sometimes) were very friendly and knew the right places to eat etc. make sure you carry the right electric plugs to charge your cellphone, cameras etc (budapest is on the asian plugs and i was carrying european and american and the hotel did not have converters so it was quite a task finding them in the markets). overall, highly recommended hotel. njoy. sam.

      Perfect location for seeing the city


      Perfect location for walking the city. The views from the rooms on the river side are great. We stayed 3 days and felt well taken care of. The internet access was perfect and we got all our email updates. We also parked our car on the street in front of the hotel without any problems. The lighted cable bridge is just down the street and we walked across it to get to the other side of the city. Perfect place.

      Excellent, clean and funky hotel


      This hotel is great, really new and chic and very close to all main sights with great views. Don't hesitate to book especially if you get a discounted rate on the internet. The prices inside the hotel itself are expensive for Budapest, but average in terms of western standards. the only thing I'd advise against is getting the hotel to ring you a cab to the airport at the end as this is vastly overpriced.

      Very Pleasant Stay


      Very nice little hotel. Location not ideal, but if you're a walker, then it's no big deal. I was very happy with my choice. It's a short walk to the Castle District, a very pleasant stroll along the riverside and across the Chain Bridge to the sights on the other side of the river. Gorgeous views of the Parliament building and the river, especially at night. Supermarket and metro 5 minutes away and variety of restaurants nearby. Staff very helpful, but with a slight standoffishness, which could have been due to being busy! Rooms well appointed, fresh, new and comfy! Can thoroughly recommend this hotel.

      If you hate that stuffy European chintzy look which abounds in places like Vienna, but like clean, new, minimalistic simplicity, like me, then you'll love this place regardless of the artwork, which wasn't the reason I stayed here. I had stayed at the Art'otel in West Berlin previously, so thought I'd give this a go - and you should too!

      Superb view but...


      Having spent 6 nights in the Art'otel Budapest Hotel,I can assure you that the view from the rooms is superb!!!The Danube as well as the castle in the back are so beautiful!!!The rooms are very clean,nicely decorated and quiet.The hotel is coveniently located as far as the transport is concerned.You will certainly enjoy your breakfast since there is a full buffet.

      Unfortunately,I should recommend that you check the air-condition since ours didn't work.There was a huge delay in fixing it so we finally changed a room without the hotel bringing us not even a complimentary dessert tray for the incovenience.I should also advise you not to take a hotel taxi since the tarrif is far more expensive than the usual.The staff was friendly enough although some times they tried to treat us as plain tourists.That made us have second thoughts about our choice.If you need to use their p.cs in order to connect your digital camera to it ,I highly recommend that you bring your Laptop along since this is not possible.

      Excellent hotel stay


      My girlfriend and I both agreed that the Art'Otel Budapest was one of the best hotel experiences we've had. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. Our room had a great view of the Danube and the Parliament building. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet each day was great. The hotel even brought an excellent complimentary dessert tray to our room one night.

      The Metro station is a short walk (maybe 3-5 minutes) from the hotel and buses and trams stop directly in front of the hotel. The business office had two computers with complimentary Internet service (supposedly 30 minutes per day, though I didn't notice anyone checking).

      The staff was especially understanding and gracious about our delayed arrival and missed airport transfer, which they ultimately did not charge us for. (We had made repeated unsuccessful attempts to phone the hotel from the U.S. and apparently the email that a friend sent on our behalf did not reach the hotel.)

      I highly recommend the Art'Otel Budapest.



      This hotel is an oasis in the chaos of Budapest. I have never been so well looked after as I was here. Don't hesitate - just book it.

      Better than your average Business hotel


      This hotel is on the West side of the river near exactly opposite the Parlament Building. I booked online using their website and got a special weekend rate. Got a great room with a view of the river and Parlament. This hotel has art all over the place which makes it a bit more interesting than your average 4 star hotel. Beakfast (good full buffet) was included. Also 30 minutes internet free per day in their business centre, there was nobody there checking so I used to just walk in and check my email/surf the web at anytime. I would definately stay here again. The only downside is that its on the West bank so its not right slap bang in the centre of town. However there are trams right out the front which you can get to Gellert in 5 minutes or metro to town in 10 minutes. There is also a supermarket and several resturants (including Chinese, French, Belgium, Italian) all withing 5 minutes walk.

      Budapest, a city with two faces, literally. Buda is the hilly side, Pest is the flat area across the Danube River. We arrived at 10 a.m. at the train station on the flat side, took the metro to Batthany train station, just a 1/4 mile from the Art'otel where we are staying. The Art'otel came highly recommended by our friend who lives in Warsaw, …

      ... It was a little pricey for Budapest but a real treat for both of us. We indulged in delicious coffee and cake under glass chandeliers and painted mural ceilings. That evening we had a Hungarian buffet dinner where we tried a variety of dishes at a very affordable price. Overall a very good day out :)

      On our last day we decided to go to the food market and have lunch at home after missing the morning walking tour. After lunch, we (thankfully) made ...

      A day of travelling by train through Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary to Budapest. Peter has gone off to London and I set off from a Krakow via Katowice to Budapest. No major problems but I did get in the middle of a police chase trying to get off the train at Katowice. As it turns out two guys got on the train the station prior and managed to steal a suitcase from a traveller. The made a hasty exit though ...

      ... most others that we have visited. The city had a way of satisfying you but then showing a little bit more to have you salivating and wanting more. Five days was a long time and should have been enough to see it all, but because of the subtle secrets that Budapest slowly lets you in on, you find yourself wanting more and more each day. Although our time was over for now, we did vow to return and although we have said this to about a lot of places, that was more to be nice, this time we meant it. ...

      ... the road our hotel was on, and pretty quickly an older station worker with no English wanted to help. I showed him the name of the road and he motioned where it was and how to get there. This was quite a different experience to Vienna, where we had also stood looking unknowingly with a map in our hand but were not offered help (although we were in Frankfurt!).

      We found our hotel pretty easily after that and after a false start (a smoking room, which we asked to change ...
