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
The Hotel was clean and finely polished, the staff were fantastic and very knowledgeable regarding transport, where to eat, shops etc.
We stayed 4 nights for my husband's birthday and really enjoyed staying at the hotel, the breakfast was just magic, with everything to eat you could think of, I would stay there again when I next go to Hungary.
This is an excellent hotel in a good location in Budapest
The breakfast is fantastic and sets you up for the day
Really nice helpful staff
Only minor issue for me is that the room was very warm and the ac did not cool it down very well but that is a minor issue
Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Budapest
This is a lovely hotel with some history. It was a private home then renovated several times. Our room was spacious, the shower was great! and the neighborhood has lots of restaurants and tiny shops. The location is good too for people that like to walk. The city center is about 15 to 20 minutes walk away.
We stayed in Palazzo Zichy for a romantic valentines trip and this certainly ticked all of the boxes. The building is beautiful and in a safe and scenic part of town, the staff are super, very friendly and helpful and the breakfast each morning was wonderful. I visited the fitness suite twice which was well equipped with quality weights, treadmill and cross trainer plus training mats and fresh water was available. The breakfast was plentiful hot and cold options including the most amazing pancakes! Would definite stay again. Wonderful experience.
We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. Good service and friendly staff. Modern deco and nice ambience. We loved the coffee machine, tea, spice drinks, nuts and breadsticks that are available in the lobby till 5pm daily. Highly recommended.
