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 visited Budapest to take in the sights and explore the Christmas Markets. Hotel Palazzo Zichy is a great base, it’s about 20 minutes walk from the main shopping area, which for us gave us a chance to walk off the great food on offer; from street food to tasty restaurant offerings. The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful, rooms were spotless and the breakfast options were excellent. Definitely worth the money and would highly recommend!
The hotel was in a good location. It was old fashioned with modern touches. There was plenty of choice at breakfast but it was a little noisy. The rooms were large and good value. I would stay there again.
This is a Fab hotel in a perfect location.
The hotel is beautiful, the staff are friendly and you are not far from anywhere that Budapest has to offer.
Upon arrival we were upgraded to a junior suite as the hotel was so busy - this was perfect for us as it was my fiancés birthday and although the hotel wasn't aware it was his birthday it just made the trip more special.
The rooms are really lovely, the breakfast was lovely and offered everything you needed to set you up for the day! Should we return to Budapest I would not hesitate to book here again.
Budapest is a beautiful city full of history - although it was very cold when we visited so ensure to wrap up warm in the winter months.
We had a really pleasant stay and a bonus too was the Christmas markets were on - fab to walk around.
While a little distance from the very heart of the city, I would recommend the Zichy unreservedly. Beautiful hotel, large rooms and very peaceful, the staff looked after guests perfectly. Zichy is located in an interesting district on a square close to good restaurants and bars
I stayed there with my wife for 3nights and we had a wonderful stay. The room was spacious, comfy and clean. The service was really good and friendly. It is only at 5’ to 10’ from the river and the bus stop to the airport. If I have to come back, i will definitely stay there!
Best was the possibility tomorder additional things such as other pillows, specific higiene stuff, extra chair, extra towel...just filling a paper and it comes to you in a sec! Absolutely no regret to stay in this wonderful hotel, a big recommendation
