Within striking distance of Budapest’s iconic Chain Bridge, the InterContinental Budapest is a classic five-star property on the banks of the Danube. The neutral guestrooms feature deep red accents and Art Deco–inspired furnishings, and all come with a work desk, tea- and coffeemaking facilities and a bathroom with a tub. Book a river-facing room for views across the Danube to the castle. The Corso restaurant serves Hungarian specialties for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and dishes up a lavish champagne brunch on Sundays. Head out to the terrace in the summer months to sip wine from some of Hungary’s finest vineyards. There are plenty of top spas in the city, but to unwind without leaving the premises, hit the wellness area for a dip in the heated indoor pool, or to relax in the sauna or steam room. The gym is open 24 hours.
In the Area
The hotel is within walking distance of two of Budapest’s hippest neighborhoods: the Seventh District’s old Jewish quarter and the Eighth District’s palace zone. The neighboring streets are lined with cool cafés, tiny art galleries, local design shops and quirky ruin bars – derelict industrial spaces that have been converted into hip drinking dens. Restaurants worth seeking out are Bock Bisztró, for its contemporary Hungarian dishes, and Fülemüle, for its Jewish-Hungarian specialties. The Rákóczi Tér food market is well worth a browse, and the Hungarian National Museum, a short walk away, is a must-see.
How to Get There
We stayed here for 2 nights prior to our cruise. It lives up to its reputation. The restaurant has a wonderful breakfast buffet as well as great Hungarian specialties. The chicken paprikash was better than my mom used to make!
As you’d expect from an Intercontinental hotel - spotless room, accommodating staff when I had 2 separate bills, and good food. Great location right next to the Danube. There are more low key hotels in the area for a personal stay but if it’s a special trip this won’t disappoint.
Great setting right on the Danube, stayed here for 4 days whilst on business. Staff were very helpful, rooms were very nice. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Lovely very of the Danube from my room which was a bonus
