Set in Jozsefvaros, one of Budapest’s most desirable neighborhoods, and close to both historic sites and lively nightlife, the 80-room Hotel Palazzo Zichy was once the abode of famous Hungarian nobleman, Count Nándor Zichy. The mostly black and white rooms are stylishly decked out. There’s no on-site restaurant, but you’re within walking distance of great eats, and inclusions like free mineral water and coffee, access to the gym and traditional wooden sauna provide solace at the end of a day spent exploring the city.
In the Area
Take advantage of the hotel’s proximity to the storied Danube by boarding a river cruise: cradle a glass of wine on a one-hour evening journey aboard the Danube Legend, which floats past some of the city’s most acclaimed sites, including Buda Castle, the over-the-top ornate Parliament and the famous Chain Bridge, which looks particularly magical at night strung with lights. Cityrama, meanwhile, hosts guided tours of Castle Hill (including a funicular ride to the top) followed by a Danube one-hour cruise. Or, experience the water without going anywhere on one of the city’s famous moored bars, like Spoon Café, a three-storey boat that offers cultural programs and upscale dining.
How to Get There
we had a great stay at Palazzo Zichy .Service was always friendly.Nice clean rooms and very quiet.Good beds.
Very good breakfast buffet.Efficient and helpful personnel .The classiness of the hotel makes it a great place to stay .
During a family trip I spent in this hotel 3 nights and I have to say that everything was fine, although the superior room was on the beautiful and small square just in front of the hotel and at the left of the entrance at the hotel, I slept perfectly! The bed was like mine at home and I could choose between two perfect pillows. Moreover, there are black curtains so that even people who can't sleep with a few light are able, because at night everything is really dark. The bath was absolutely an Italian bath, so that for me from Italy it's like a dream come true: finding a "bidet" out of Italy it's not so simple. The breakfast was incredible, 10/10: you could find everything, the only thing was that I didn't want to finish it. The hotel is very beautiful and also the receptionists were all really kind so that it's been a pleasure to stay in Hotel Palazzo Zichy. I'll definitely return.
Superb hotel with outstanding facilities: use of a gym and sauna; lounge area with newspapers, tea, coffee, etc.; sumptuous breakfast room. The rooms are of a very high standard, ours had a dressing/luggage room with a safe; lounge area; en-suite bathroom; coffee/drinks maker. The room was immaculate and spotless. The staff were extremely polite and helpful. Couldn't have been happier, would definitely return and very happy to recommend to others.
We stayed for one night before joining our river cruise. The driver had a little problem dropping us off out front as there is no place to park a car, but we were quickly checked in and enjoyed everything about the room, the breakfast, and the accommodating and knowledgeable staff who spoke excellent English.
This is a great little hotel in a perfect area for walking around Budapest, which we did for the three days that we were there. The staff was incredibly helpful, courteous, friendly, and professional. We very much enjoyed the extensive breakfast buffet which had plenty of options for us to eat as vegans. For those who are meat eaters there is a great spread of meats, cheeses, eggs and bacon. Also, extensive varieties of breads, grilled vegetables, fruits and juices. Also, the bar was great and the bartender wonderful. There’s a nice little gym and sauna area that we didn’t end up using but looked nice.
We slept well in the comfortable beds and it was very quiet. The only thing we didn’t like was the dark wallpaper which made it a little bit difficult to see in the hallways. Our eyes are aging. Otherwise, the place is extremely tastefully decorated. A great little hotel!
