The Continental Hotel Budapest comes highly recommended for its impeccable cleanliness and stunning interiors that blend modern amenities with historic charm. Guests have praised the attentive housekeeping and well-maintained facilities. While opinions on service are mixed, the hotel's location is celebrated for its proximity to key attractions and transport options. Travelers enjoy the range of amenities, particularly the pools and wellness center, though some find the rooms a tad snug and overly warm. External noise has been a concern for some, but overall, the hotel is considered a good value.

The hotel’s location is a tram ride or a good 20 minute walk away from the scenic views by the Danube. So if that is important to you, choose a hotel nearer to the river-side. Standard rooms are on the small side. We were comfortable in a superior room which just gave a little more space & comfort size wise & provided bathrobes & slippers useful for the pools & spa. The best feature is the indoor & outdoor pool. Great to use after sightseeing & walking round Budapest & the outdoor pool would be a wonderful space to relax by during the heat of the summer months Didn’t use the gym or spa. Ruin bars & other restaurants are just a few streets walk away. There is a nice ‘London style’ coffee shop, London Coffee Society, close to the hotel on the opposite side of the road. Breakfast is more than adequate & they will prepare any items not readily available on the buffet to order, such as porridge made with water. Porridge/oatmeal on the buffet is made with regular cow’s milk. The buffet provides various plant milks & there are a reasonable amount of healthier options such as fresh fruit, muesli & wholemeal bread available as well as the usual fare. Whilst breakfast isn’t anything like the standard of say the Sofitel, the Continental costs far less & overall provides good value for the price paid.

The outside of this building is beautiful, the revolving doors I have never seen anything like them, amazing! From start to finish we had a great stay here. The staff were great, we asked for extra blankets as the ones we had were two small duvets which would have suited a small single bed but they brought some extras up to our room. You could even choose from 5 different pillows if you wanted to. Our room was facing the street but with the window closed you could hear no noise at all. Lots of wardrobe space, great bathroom with shampoo, shower gel etc and very nicely decorated. There were hooks on the wall as well where we could hang our coats and scarves so we did not have to hang them in the wardrobe. There was a bottle of still and sparkling water complimentary when we arrived but all other drinks we had to purchase from the minibar with the type of room we had. The only thing I didn't like much was the breakfast room as all the tables were so close together you may as well have been sitting on a table with the people either side of you but I suppose there are trying to get as many tables in a possible which is understandable. Breakfast was good, a lot of choice so something for everyone. The Christmas Tree and lights were still up as it was the 3rd Jan when we arrived which made the lobby look absolutely amazing. The hotel was also a few min walk from a stop for the open top bus which we used on all the days we were there but also along that road was buses and trams so very convenient for travelling around the city. I would say it was around a 20 to 30 min walk though to the river and the main attractions if you fancy walking. The road the hotel is on and also roads off it had lots of restaurants, cafes etc so lots of choice for places to eat and drink, also a few shops if you needed water, chocolate etc. We found a great Chinese place, the best Chinese food I have ever tasted! It was called Yummy Wok and is on the same side of the road as the hotel and as you come out the door, head left, highly recommend, we went twice and we were only there for 3 nights! All in all a great place to stay if you don't want to be in the heart of it all but near enough for the transport to get to things, i would definitely stay here again.

Dear Louise R, Thank you for your stay at our Continental Hotel Budapest. I really appreciate your precious time you took to write such a detailed lovely feedback and share with the online community. I am incredibly happy and proud to learn that we maximally managed to meet your expectations and you spent a wonderful city break with us. It sounds superb that our ideally located property proved to be a perfect base to explore Budapest and you would return to us without hesitation. I am delighted to learn that you have experienced our helpful service and you were really impressed by your well-equipped room, pillow menu and little details. Further on, I am pleased that you still had the opportunity to admire our beautiful Christmas tree. I am sorry for any inconveniences encountered during breakfast. You are right, we strive to offer as many seat as we can since we are usually running with full house. It is suggested to have the breakfast in the early hours in order to avoid the possible overcrowding. All in all, I am truly glad you had a great time and left us with the nicest impressions. Thank you for your strong recommendation here, on the most popular traveler’s site. We very much look forward to welcoming you back, hopefully in the not so distant future. Best regards, Zoltán Géher General Manager

Stayed for a three night city break recently.

The location was perfect - a 10 minute walk to river and the hotel is in the heart of the Jewish Quarter and the Ruin bars.

The hotel’s lobby is stunning with the ceiling replicating the thermal baths that used to be located on the site.

Our room was comfortable with good storage space and bathroom. It did get very warm in the evening however, and try as I might, I couldn’t work the air con.

Reception staff are friendly and efficient and we used their taxi service to take us back to the airport which for a fixed fee of 7500 HUF (~£18) this was reasonable value for money.

Breakfast was great - wonderful selection of most that you would want. Again staff were obliging and brought some warm gluten free rolls when we asked if any were available. Sat & Sun mornings we were at breakfast just before 9am and there were quite a few seats, but leaving it a bit later on Mon morning the restaurant was heaving - there are signs in the lift however warning that this is the busiest time!

Really pleased we booked the Continental. Would definitely recommend!

Dear Simon_Grain_Lloyd, I would like to thank you for your stay at our Continental Hotel Budapest. It is really nice of you to take your valuable time to share such a detailed feedback about your experiences. It is delightful that you were generally satisfied with the excellent value represented by our centrally located, beautiful hotel. I am pleased that you were impressed by the great architectural job did on our historical building. Many thanks for appreciating your spacious, comfortable room. Please note, that your room is heated, even with setting the cooling to maximum. Our experience has shown that the need for cooling the room in winter season is very minimal among our guests, therefore only the heating works now, which could be completely turned off, if needed. I am sorry that you did not ask for our colleagues’s assistance. Further on, I am glad that you highlighted the efforts and friendly service of our Reception team, as well as the helpful attitude of our waiters. It was a pleasure to contribute to your most enjoyable stay. Lastly, thank you for the definite recommendation. We very much look forward to welcoming you back, hopefully in the not so distant future. Best regards, Zoltán Géher General Manager

Just one visit in 2019 in October, we would like to visit at least twice a year but a busy year at home prevented this. The Continental Hotel remains our first choice of hotel for a stay in Budapest, it's standards continue to climb upward.
Yet again we were not disappointed by the staff and facilities. The staff are kind and very thoughtful welcoming us back like VIP's Our room was upgraded yet again, I know this won't be the case for most, I suspect if you return to the hotel you are more likely to get an upgrade if one is available. We got to know more of the staff this visit and we can say the standard of English spoken by all staff is very good.
Booking the hotel, we went through all the big comparison sites but ended up with the best price from the hotel itself, we gave the exact details of the stay and asked for their best price, email reply within a day. The advantage of booking through the hotel itself is you get the swimming pool and gym included and don't have to pay the small daily fee that you would if you go through the comparison sites.
Breakfast buffet remains very good and great value for money, plenty of choice of both hot and cold foods. Good coffee is freshly made as they use bean to cup coffee machines. If you need a more detailed review of the hotel and how best to get around Budapest please read my last review of this hotel.
I still highly recommend this hotel, it's the little details that make this hotel stand out from the crowd, the staff attention to detail, their friendly nature and their willingness to help once they understand what you want. We would happily stay again here next time we visit.

As the title says this is our first visit back to the Continental Hotel since the start of Covid19. Firstly booking was again very easy through the hotel itself. After looking at all the comparison sites it was again cheaper going straight to the hotel itself for our booking giving them the dates we wanted and what level of room we required. It's worth mentioning again that if you book through the hotel the use of the roof top pool and gym is included and you don't have to pay the small fee each day you use it as it's included as standard. The reply to my request was within a day and at the very best price. The English written by the booking staff was perfect and very friendly in nature.
Right on to the hotel itself. Firstly being picked up by the hotel taxi ( a nice Mercedes Benz ) at the airport, ( which we had booked through the hotel ) made it easy and comfortable to get to the hotel. The staff booked us in very quickly and knew us by name ( I have to declare we have stayed at this hotel several times before ). We were given a double upgrade to the Junior Suite, now I know this will not be the case for most but as I've said we have visited several times before and this was a very kind touch by the staff as the suite was available. This was the first time we had stayed in any suite in any hotel, I can highly recommend it if you can afford it as it came with a full large bathroom including a bath and large shower. It had a large comfortable lounge and separate bedroom. It also came with a small balcony, which was fantastic for my wife and myself as we both smoke and this is allowed outside the room. They also have an outdoor smoking area within the hotel which is heated during cold weather.
The buffet breakfast was very good offering both a selection of hot and cold foods, the coffee was good from the bean to cup coffee makers. We used the balcony bar upstairs for both drinks and food, all good at a fair price.
We visited this time for the Budapest Christmas Markets, which were very good and put us in a very festive mood. The Hotel contributed towards this as well as from the beginning of December they put up one of the largest decorated Christmas trees in Budapest and also decorate the hotel in a very festive manner. The hotel also put on some festive events running up to Christmas. I could go on about how fantastic the hotel and staff were but if you read my other reviews of this hotel they all remain valid. I would however add that the hotel staff were very helpful with helping us sort out our pre flight Covid testing before our return to England.
Would we stay at this hotel again? Hell yes at the drop of a hat.

Background personnel’s efforts are equally important and valuable as everyone's job in our great team. I am truly glad that you enjoyed your spacious Junior Suite offered and appreciated the helpfulness of our Front Desk team.

Thank you for mentioning the hotel lobby dressed in full of Christmas decoration as well as the festive programs provided. It makes me truly happy to see that we have more and more returning guests, as this fact in itself is a confirmation that we are working well and gives us further motivation to perform even better in the future. Thank you again for appreciating our overall great job and for recommending us to TripAdvisor readers. It means a lot to us.

Dear Peter B, Thank you very much for your stay at our Continental Hotel Budapest and for taking your valuable time to review us here, on TripAdvisor. I gladly assume based on your excellent ratings given that you found generally our hotel and services to be more than satisfactory. Thank you for appreciating our airport transfer service; it is really a bit more expensive than a regular cab, but in the opinion of many of our guests, it worths to pay the small supplement for its’ reliability and safety. I am sorry, if your room choice was not maximally to your satisfaction in terms of size. For the future, let me suggest you to book even a higher room category, since now already we have 5 different room types. Thank you for your support. I sincerely hope that you will return to us if your plans take you back to Budapest, will be waiting for you! Best regards, Zoltán Géher General Manager

The hotel itself is clean, modern and stylish inside. The reception area is very welcoming. We arrived late on the Friday evening (just gone midnight) to be informed by reception that our room was not ready as they had assumed we were not coming, considering we had paid for the Friday it was a bit frustrating that the hotel assumed we were not arriving and had to wait around after a long day, we had to wait about 15 mins for the room to be sorted. We had originally booked the Boutique Hotel however they had transferred us to this hotel as its sister hotel & gave us complimentary breakfast for the weekend. The next morning we were not listed on the breakfast list and was not allowed into the breakfast hall despite showing an email confirming the complimentary breakfast. Ten minutes, 2 staff members later we were allowed in. Clearly the two hotels had not communicated well. The food at breakfast was nice and there was a good selection.
The room itself was modern and clean and good value for money however the house keeping was only done once over a 3 night stay, the house keeping attempted to clean the room at 5pm on the other occasions and by this point we were back in our room settled and turned them away. It would have been nicer to have had the room cleaned a lot earlier in the day.

Room service should not be listed as room service as we had to ring up for a menu, to be told we had to come and get it and when we went to get the menu we was told we could not take it our room to look through due to only having one menu! The room service menu has very limited choice, we was really disappointed about the lack of service when it came to trying to order room service.
David on reception was very polite and helpful when we tried to book and organise our PCR tests, thank you David, you were the most helpful and polite staff member we spoke with during our stay!

Dear Asher M, First of all, thank you so much for choosing to stay at our Continental Hotel Budapest and for taking your precious time to share your sincere experiences. We genuinely care about our guests and are dedicated to serving them well. Needless to say that we welcome every guest feedback and take them very seriously, whether they are positive reviews or constructive criticisms. On the one hand, it is encouraging that you were generally impressed by our stylishly decorated, beautiful hotel itself and appreciated the outstanding efforts of our professional Front Desk Colleague, David. I definitely pass your praises to him. Further on, thank you for mentioning the great buffet breakfast selection. On the other hand, I was disappointed to learn that you did not find everything to be as perfect as you expected. I am truly sorry for the initial difficulties arisen, as well as for the misunderstanding concerning the breakfast. Please accept our sincere apologies for all the caused inconveniences. Let me assure you that I definitely take the appropriate steps in order to avoid similar cases in the future. Besides, please note that our housekeepers have to clean hundreds of rooms every day between 8:00 and 16:00 o’clock. I am sorry that the above mentioned regrettable shortcomings, which are actually so far from our high standards, a bit shadowed your stay. Thank you for your support. We would be honoured to get a second chance to regain your trust in our great hotel and prove you that we are a perfect hotel choice indeed! Best regards, Zoltán Géher General Manager

We stayed at the Continental hotel for 3 nights recently and really enjoyed our stay.

The location is brilliant. Within walking distance of most the key sights in Budapest.

It was also really easy to reach from the airport. We took the 100E bus which departs from outside the airport terminal and drops you at Astoria. This is a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel and costs 900 HUF (approx £2.20 for a single ticket).

Note that it’s best to get the bus back to the airport from Deak Ferenc ter which is still only a 10 minute walk from the hotel.

Check in was efficient. We were automatically given a map of the city and ideas on what we could do during our stay.

The room was spotless. There were coffee making facilities, a safe and a fridge in the room which was convenient.

There is a indoor pool on the top floor. We never used it but it looked a nice area. Plus there was an outdoor rooftop pool which wasn’t open in February but would be welcome in the summer months.

We never did breakfast in the hotel but the restaurant area looked nice and always seemed busy.

There are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants near to the hotel too which was convenient.

Great stay overall.

This hotel ticks all the boxes ,

location is brilliant bars and restaurants all around you’ll not struggle finding a drink or a place to eat , from burger joints to Michelin restaurants. Very close ruin bars and cafe New York , also the bus stop for the tour bus is within a 5 min walk , we got our bus tickets from the hotel and the women at the desk couldn’t be more helpful.

The room we had was executive double it was huge had a lounge area with tea n coffee making facilities, separate shower n bath in the bathroom , mini bar offering everything you need to make your stay comfortable, the maids came every day cleaned our room and brought fresh towels, bedding and replenished our tea n coffee facilities.
Breakfast at the hotel was lovely it had a huge offering there was something for everyone from fresh fruits ,pastries and juices to the hot selection bacon eggs etc , the hotel pool and sauna is brilliant and we used this every morning before breakfast.

Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Budapest , we really couldn’t fault it on our visit here
