We love Budapest. It’s a city filled with wonder, and which offers luxury without the hefty price tag. Whether you’re in the mood for a romantic couples holiday or an educational city break, Budapest has it all.
If you want to make the most of your time in this incredible city, take a look at these five grand hotels in Budapest.
This 5 star hotel is not only grand, it’s also stylish and affordable; words you don’t often hear together!
Located within walking distance of the Opera House and Castle District, where you’ll find the famous Buda Castle, the Corinthia is paved with marble flooring and sweeping staircases. Its aptly named Royal Spa is the perfect place to unwind, or you can take a dip in the hotel’s indoor pool and Jacuzzi.
James Christopher from York says, “Stylish,with splendid art nouveau features, this hotel is a very special place providing comfortable luxury at its best. The breakfasts were excellent; the Atrium restaurant brilliant; live jazz piano in a bar stupendous, and the pool really good for exercise swimming.”
Another 5 star hotel, the Boscolo Budapest Hotel is located steps away from the Blaha Lujza SquareMetro, and is lavished in gold and frescoed ceilings.
After a day spent exploring the city, return to the Boscolo, where you can make use of its facilities, including spa treatments, indoor swimming pool and a sauna perfect for unwinding in.
Andrew from Bruton says, “The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful- the cafe and dining rooms are stunning. More importantly the welcome and service from the staff was exceptional – particularly in the restaurant on the evening we are there.”
Although this 4 star hotel opts for a more modern decor, it’s no less grand than our other hotel picks.
The Continental Zara is set in downtown Budapest, which is the business district of the city. Boasting an art deco interior, you’ll find its hotel rooms are spacious and chic, with en suite bathrooms boasting Jacuzzi baths.
When it comes to facilities, the main standout is the Continental Zara’s rooftop pool, ideal for summer visits.
Pamela from Grays says, “Really impressive hotel, great customer service, fantastic breakfast selection and wonderful views of the city sitting in the rooftop spa garden!”
Another modern classic, this 5 star hotel enjoys a fusion of Asian and Colonial architecture, and is decorated in seductive shades of red and gold.
Buddha-Bar Hotel can be found next to the Vaci utca, Budapest’s famous shopping area, meaning you won’t have to roam far to enjoy a little retail therapy. The hotel also boasts plenty of facilities too, including a cool lounge and restaurant, spa and sauna.
Hannah from Salford says, “Excellent location! Lovely, comfortable room with everything you could need, including a nespresso machine and an empty fridge below the minibar to stock your own drinks in. Really cool bar on the first floor with great music. We would definitely stay here again!”
This beautiful hotel offers 5 star luxury and is located just moments away from the Madach Theatre and Postal Stamp Museum. This hotel has much more traditional décor and you’ll find it has a very homely feel to it.
Queen’s Court and Residence Hotel offers very spacious apartments complete with kitchens, which are designed to give you a home away from home feeling. The Queens Court has its own indoor pool, which comes complete with a huge glass chandelier (personally, we think no pool is complete without one).
Libby from Derby says, “This hotel is absolutely perfect, the staff are so friendly and welcoming, everywhere is clean, the rooms are massive and are well worth the money.”
