A 19th-century nobleman’s residence with funky décor and a prime location on the Pest side of the Danube

The Lowdown

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.

This was a great find! Little worried about the location based on some on sone online queries but it turned out to be perfect. Walking distance to many sidewalk cafes and museums. Also near public transportation.

The hotel was lovely. And very comfortable. Absolutely wonderful breakfast buffet. Even had smoked salmon And all the fixings! Highly recommend.

Everything you wanted at 1/2 the cost!!!!

Hotel Palazzo Zichy is an extraordinary boutique hotel. The location is excellent. It’s about a 10 minute walk to the Marketplace and the river. The rooms have everything you could need. If you’re coming from the US don’t forget to bring a converter for your electrical goods. If you do forget, the front desk can get you one to borrow. There are plenty of plugs to plug in your phones, pads, etc. You might also want to bring along an alarm clock as the rooms don’t have clocks. Speaking of rooms, the ceilings are at least 20 feet tall. The bathrooms have great showers and all the amenities you could want. The beds are comfortable and come with these great down duvets. There is also a desk and coffee service in the room. Speaking of coffee, the lobby has complimentary coffee service until 5:00 PM each day. The machine that makes everything from black coffee to lattes makes delicious coffee. I ended up having 4 cappuccinos one morning (even a lot for me). The complimentary breakfast had quite a large choice of items and was a real nice extra.

The staff want to make sure you have a great stay and will do pretty much whatever they need to do to make that happen. I would stay at the hotel when in Budapest in a minute. Oh yea, it’s about half of what the Hilton charges and much better. .
