We decided to have breakfast at a bakery we had walked passed last night instead of a full breakfast at the hotel - big mistake. Neither of us liked the tea, coffee or food. Breakfast left us with full tummies and a bad taste in our mouths. We found the California Coffee Shop and had another drink there. After finishing our tea and coffee we …

Bath day in Budapest

... to the baths. After a 15 min chin wag we parted ways, such a nice part of the end of my day. I returned my bike and headed to the hostel to dry my hair. Turns out the bath water really helps soften tangly hair! I went and wandered around for a bit, got a fresh pressed fruit and veggies juice and some groceries in prep for my train adventure tomorrow afternoon. Im off to bed early as I was to get up and seize as much of my half day in Budapest as possible ! Have a nice day everyone ! ...

... part of the EU as everything is already priced in euro's. It has the grandeur of every former communistic city. Like it was built to show it's richness and then time stood still for a while. Nowadays they're restoring it rapidly. EU funds, no doubt. Kids face to the west. Capitalism is cool. All-Stars, Hilfiger and every other respected brand. Short skirts stand out against more authentic clothing. But still it's relatively poor. Even the ones that seem not to be. For ...

BUDAPEST - HUNGARY

... The buildings were huge and grand structures that lined the streets for as far as the eye could see provided an intimidating feeling. Gone were the quiet cobbled streets with a few mini cars and scooters buzzing about. Replacing them were thousands of automobiles slowly crawling through the city and choking the throats of everyone with their fumes. There were people everywhere busily hurrying around and the place had that big city feel.

After a quick walk, we ...

... and enough oily and tomato-y goodness to get that real pizza feel. Thinking about them now I feel a longing to rush back and eat another!! The other dishes were also wonderful. The bean goulash soup was smoky and it really felt like eating a piece of our adventure in Budapest. Eddie found that he really enjoyed the pickled cabbage in Hungary as it was more salty than sour. On another visit to the restaurant we also enjoyed the ‘Sunshine Platter for 2’…here we made ...

    We are staying on the "Avalon Panorama" for the next 2 weeks. To get to the boat we left our luggage at the Intercontinental and took a coach up river to where the boat is anchored.

    From what I saw of the Intercontinental it is everything that I expect of a 5 star hotel.

    SHORT BREAK

    from

    We have just returned from Budapest after a 3 day birthday weekend, having stayed at the Hotel Inter-Continental, the view from our room was simply stunning, looking across the Danube to the Buda Palace, taking in the sights of the river, it was breathtaking, the hotel lived up to its 5 star rating, the staff were more than helpful, with any request we had. The restaurant was excellent, also breakfast buffet style was superb. We also availed ourselves of the gym/pool/sauna facilities. A good restaurant on a boat "Spoon" right on the the river across the road from the hotel. We liked Budapest very much and will certainly stay and recommend the Hotel Inter-continental again, it would be well worth asking for a river view room - J & Y Date CAERPHILLY

    Good for 'View People'

    from

    Quite a step down from the Intercontinental Prague. While the Intercontinental Prague is a luxury property, the Intercontinental Budapest has 5 star views, 5 star location, 3 star furnishings, 3 star service = maybe 4 overall star hotel. Whether to stay here or elsewhere depends upon how you rank views vs. service vs. rooms, etc. Very popular (and crowded) with tour groups. Perfect location with unbeatable views of the castle, etc. across the Danube... The rooms are very small, with furnishings like a standard american chain hotel (think La Quinta or the like). Since the rooms are small, the club floor is worth it for a place to relax and have drinks and hors d'oeurves, though the lounge was quite overcrowded, with people standing around waiting for a seat... The breakfast buffet was bountiful but mediocre, and very hectic and crowded, with people pushing and elbowing to fill their plates with heaping portions of greasy food, as if it was their last meal... I think that the overall experience is probably very different depending on whether the hotel is at high or low occupancy.

    Confused about the price of telephone calls

    from

    I really liked my stay at the intercontinental until I got my bill...I paid 125 euro for the room I stayed in and 165 euro for 90 minutes I spent connected to the internet. Future guests - leave your laptop behind!

    MEDIOCRE

    from

    We stayed here in June 2004 because we wanted a Danube-view room. Apert from the view the room and hotel were nothing special. We asked for a smoking room and we were given a non-smoking room with permission to smoke! Not very good for those non-smokers who visited afterwards. I would also question the hygiene aspect of placing a towel rail next to the toilet which resulted in towels themselves being jammed behind the toilet lid! Additionally, after running my finger along the inside of the bath I chose not to use it. This very basic test says a lot about overall standards.

    Good hotel but watch out for the Brits

    from

    Spent three nights here at the end of October. This is an excellent (if slightly typical) Intercontinental. The staff were efficient and polite, the food good and the location superb. I had a lovely room with great view of the Danube.

    If you stay at this hotel, watch out for the noisy Brits on weekend city breaks.

    Adequate, but nothing special

    from

    Located on the Danube, Pest side near the Chain Bridge, you can see why the Budapest Intercontinental is a 5* hotel. The cheap rooms are spotlessly clean, good sized, comfortable and plush, the foyer is large and smart, all very nice and modern, but it is absolutely character less and the reception people are full of their own importance. We had a slight problem with unlocked connecting doors. At first a reasonably friendly Hungarian was dealing with our problem only for an American to usurp that man's authority, and solve our problem with shark-eyes, no flicker of emotion, not even a condescending gesture of regret at their oversight. The atmosphere is totally sterile. I was impressed by the variety of food available for breakfast. set out in sections it catered for most nationalities, Scandinavians, Japanese, German and Americans to name a few.

    Room with a view

    from

    We stayed at the InterContinental Budapest in late May 2004 and had a castle view room. The view was so wonderful that we did not want to close the curtains at night. The room was comfortable but not really special. We did not have any problem with noise from the Spoon restaurant that the previous poster mentioned. We saw the restaurant when we walked down to get the evening boat cruise but did not hear any noise. The breakfast was included in our rate. The choices were varied and everything seemed very fresh. The staff forgot about the wine and chocolates that were supposed to be included with our package even though we called to ask about it we never received it. I was happy that we stayed on the Pest side with the view of Buda. It seemed nicer than the reverse and I was happy to give up the additional luxury of the Meridien or the Kempinski to get the view.

    Riverview Room

    from

    This is a very nice hotel, american business class. Great location along the Danube, easy access to most key points.

    Best views

    from

    Stayed at Intercontinental Budapest April 29 - May 2, 2004. Pay the extra to get room facing the Danube. Great location for walking to Buda and Pest sides of the river. Rooms are comfortable but not special except for the views. This is an Americanized hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

    Great location, nice business hotel

    from

    We were placed in this hotel due to a mistake at the Astoria (a more modest - and a much more old-world - hotel), so we paid a very low rate for this hotel. We tend to like budget-to-moderate hotels with local charm, so we weren't the perfect people to stay at the I/C ... but enjoyed staying there anyway. The workout room is great (looks out over the Danube), the location is perfect - right near a bridge to the old town and at the beginning of the new town, so very convenient - and the staff is very helpful. We liked our room as well. Nothing not to like!
