My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights with another couple of friends. On arrival we were told we had been upgraded, although when we got to the rooms, only my husband and I had got an upgrade to an executive suite, although it was a nice gesture I felt a bit bad for the other couple we were with as their room was really quite small compared to ours, plus the rooms were unbearably warm, we turned our heating right down and it still seemed to be warm so made sure we opened the window for half an hour before going to sleep. The good thing is that we didn't spend too much time in the rooms as we were out exploring the beautiful city.
I would say that the breakfast was a little chaotic, not enough room for everyone, we were asked to dine in another breakfast room on the last morning as the main restaurant was overflowing !! Although saying this, we were pleasantly surprised with the breakfast and the choice, even crispy bacon and paprika sausages were there :)
That is really the only down side to the hotel, the staff are extremely pleasant and friendly, the rooms are very clean and as ours was a suite it was very spacious. The interior and design of the hotel is fantastic, I loved all the glass and the odd sculptures dotted about here and there, the coffee lounge on the mezzanine is superb and they do a mean "pina colada"
It is well situated, with many bars and restaurants around that area, the szimpla kert bar area is great and we had a fab night there, so good location. (although not too noisy), plus it's only a 15 to 20 minute walk to Andrassy, The Danube and Vaci Utca, plus many other areas, so very well located if you like to have a stroll to places and not have them right on your doorstep.
I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Budapest and I will hopefully return one day.
The standard rooms are a little small so I would spend the extra few pounds and request a larger roo...

Thank you so much for your detailed description. It may be a huge help for those travelers who haven’t decided yet wich hotel to choose. Special thanks for the introduction of the location of our Continental Hotel Budapest. I really apologise for the trouble with the heating as the outside temperature changed suddenly to calm and the hotel was still in heating mode. I was happy to read that you were satisfed with the extra room opening solution for breakfast to avoid crowd.
I also hope that you will have the possibility to return to us sometime.
