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
From start to finish: A wonderful stay. Great front desk. Excellent room. Very nice breakfast. Free coffee and water all day (until 5). Easy to get almost anywhere in the city but some places are easier to get via taxi -- just use Bolt/Taxify. No uber in Budapest... Fantastic hotel.
Brilliant hotel, great location for getting about. Staff and all facilities first class. Tip. flew into Budapest using Jet 2 and added on there airport taxi shuttle. Picked for both journeys in a brand new MERC. Arrive in style for a reasonable price.
Would recommend Hotel Palazzo Zichy very highly. It was always kept clean and tidy and the breakfasts were very good and catered for all tastes and diets. Some very good restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel and within walking distance of most of the important sites.
My husband and I stayed here for 4 Nights and from confirmation of our booking, the contact from the hotel was excellent. They asked if we wanted them to arrange a taxi pick up for us and, as our flight got in around 23:40, we took up the offer. Our taxi was waiting for us and we were at our hotel in a short space of time. The hotel itself is spotlessly clean and breakfast has a great selection. The staff are very friendly and were helpful with directions on where to go. With regards to location, it’s not right beside the main sites but is only about 20 minutes walk away from the Parliament. There are lots of cafes/restaurants near the hotel so we were spoilt for choice. Would definitely recommend Hotel Palazzo Zichy if staying in Budapest.
I couldn't wait to write this review! This is a wonderful hotel. The service is top notch! The coffee and water during the day was a plus. We loved the breakfast too! The bar was a fun place for us. The bartenders were so kind and we loved talking to them. We did walk quite a bit but but we enjoyed that part. It isn't right in the center of the city but after eating and drinking the walk was needed. Budapest was wonderful and this hotel was perfect!
