What We Love

  • Restaurant serving tasty French-meets-Hungarian cuisine
  • Attention to historic details combined with modern design sensibility
  • The charming café in the gallery above the lobby
  • The density of rom kerts (ruin pubs) in the immediate vicinity
  • Read about where to eat and drink in Budapest

What To Know

  • Two-night minimum stay is required for all rooms except the Executive Suite
  • Central location means that plenty of bars and restaurants are steps away, but street noise is sometimes audible
  • The rooftop pool is closed during winter months?
  • The neighbourhood is still a work in progress, so if you need a spit and polished location, this might not be the one for you?
  • Rooms are located in two buildings; the “spa” building has extra-high ceilings?

Good location, pleasant stay
Reviewed 4 days ago

I enjoyed my 3 night stay at the Continental.

Location is in the Jewish Quarter, which is a good location in Budapest. It’s central and you can walk to many of Budapest’s sights. There’s an underground station about 5 minutes walk away to. There’s quite a lot of bars and restaurants in the area.

My deluxe room was great. Had everything I needed, was clean and well maintained. My room was quiet and I slept well.

Although I didn’t use it there is a nice roof top pool. There is also a reasonable gym which I found fine. There’s also a bar.

Staff were generally friendly and helpful although they were busy at check in and somewhat abrupt which didn’t give me a great first impression, but things improved after that.

Whilst there is a good spread at breakfast I wouldn’t rate it that highly. For example there seemed a focus on cheaper ingredients, the coffee machine wasn’t working properly, and some of the food was quite over cooked. It was ok but I ate breakfast out after the first morning.

Overall I’d stay there again.

Enjoyable stay

Stayed at the Continental Hotel for 3 nights before a river cruise.
The room was clean and well kept.
Breakfast was very nice and and plenty of food.
The hotel staff need to smile and lack the friendliness that is required in the hospitality industry.

We opted for this hotel as it was in a good, quiet location from which to step off and see the sights of Budapest with buses and the Metro close by.
From entering the hotels impressive entrance the warmth and assistance offered by the staff was splendid and set the tone for and excellent stay enjoyed by our family group of 8. The bedrooms were well appointed and had good ensuite facilities.
Breakfast offered a wide choice to satisfy the most demanding appetite and set us up well for a days sightseeing.
I have no reservations in recommending this hotel based on our experience.
