Amy Adejokun Section editor

Located a stone's throw away from Budapest city centre, under an archway, the Mercure Metropol benefits from an excellent location. It was built in 1896, the year when the first European underground railway line was inaugurated. The decoration is therefore inspired by this event, and the same atmosphere is recreated inside the hotel. The last renovation dates from 2000...

    Location 6.49 /10

    From the airport, allow a 30 minute drive to the hotel, if the traffic moves freely. The Mercure Metropol is close to the no.2 underground line, Blaha Lujza station. It is two stations away from the changing point for all the lines and from the city centre.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    Distributed over 5 floors, three of which are reserved for non-smokers, you will have to use the lift to get to your room. Each floor is named after an underground train station. It has 130 bedrooms including 118 standard rooms and 12 superior rooms. The first category is spacious enough, but the decoration is disappointing: white walls, spotted carpet and a red flowery-patterned bedspread. It's nothing special. It is nevertheless comfortable. Favour a view of the garden, because the rooms on the street side do not have good enough soundproofing to spare you the noise from the street. You will also notice a rather strong smell of humidity... The quality of the amenities is quite good: a television, air-conditioning, a filled mini-bar, a direct international line, a safe and a hair-dryer. However, there is no room service. The bathroom is not very large, but it does have a bathtub. The blue granite sink is topped with a large wood framed mirror. Some hospitality products are at your disposal.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    When you walk into Mercure Metropol, you are supposed to feel as if you were walking into an underground train station. You only realise this when you're waiting for the doors of the lift to open, as each one has been painted like the doors of an underground train. The entrance hall is nice and bright, thanks to the beige tile flooring and the wooden counter of the reception. The latter is designed in the shape of a semi-circle, in the middle of the room. A small lounge area is set up by the hotel windows.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The restaurant of the hotel is located just behind the reception. The area is not very large and is a little impersonal: light wood furniture and red seating upholstery. The Metro Snack-Bar consists of a small counter. Breakfast is served as a buffet, set up in the middle of the hall. The restaurant remains open all day and serves a menu of light snacks. It is still quite a noisy place and it is difficult to get any privacy even though the tables are sufficiently spaced out.

    To know

    The neighbourhood around Mercure Metropol is quite a lively one. You will find all the shops you need nearby.

        Hôtel très agréable situé non loin d'une station de métro et du tramway. Notre chambre était très spacieuse. Et que dire de la salle de bain ! Salle de restauration calme et agréable.

      • Advantages

        Proximité de l'hyper centre Transports communs à proximité Personnel souriant, attentif et discret

      • Disavantages

        L'hôtel donne sur une rue très passante (plutôt un boulevard d'ailleurs). Notre chambre était proche de l'ascenseur, donc beaucoup d'allées et venues et de bruit.

      Located beside Budapest's most beautiful avenue, the Andrassy Hotel has reason to boast of its quality. The reception area is very pleasant and the staff very welcoming. The building was originally an orphanage, but a number of modifications have been carried out since then. The owner bought the building in 1999 and opened the Andrassy in 2001. The most recent renovations were carried out in 2007.

      The Domina Inn Fiesta Budapest has belonged to the Italian hotel chain, the Domina Hotel Group, since 2005, and the building dates from 1994. So you can understand why you meet a lot of Italians there. It is a pleasant establishment, located in one of the historical districts of the city. It is actually only a stone's throw away from one of the two opera houses in Budapest.

      Open in 2000, the Unio Hotel is a charming family hotel. The welcome is very convivial and once inside we can sense a certain Hungarian atmosphere. The hotel feels more like a large guest house rather than a proper hotel and dates back to the 18th century. It is well situated to explore the town centre by foot.

      This hotel is ideal for welcoming families. The prices are reasonable, and the reception staff go to great lengths to make sure families have an enjoyable stay. As this hotel is in the Ibis chain, which is part of the Accor group, don't expect to be knocked off your feet when it comes to the decor and services on offer: they are exactly the same as what you would expect to find in the chain's other hotels. However, while this place might not be too exotic, it is perfectly suited for smaller budgets.

      The Hotel Royal, as it is called by the inhabitants of Budapest, boasts a rich history that adds to its prestige. It opened in 1896 for the celebrations surrounding the Millennium Exhibition. At that time, the Hotel Royal was the biggest building on the boulevard and offered all the modern conveniences of the era. It was a place where the musicians and intellectuals of Budapest met. Bartok, the composer, and Joséphine Baker, the dancer, were regular guests of this prestigious hotel and used the impressive dance hall to perform. After several renovations, the establishment has now adopted a more modern style, but an atmosphere reminiscent of the turn of the 20th century can still be felt in certain areas.

      The advantage of this 5 star hotel is its location in the heart of the city. The building was constructed by Jozsef Finta and Antal Puhl in 1992. It looks like a glass cylinder with several doors leading guests either to the reception or to the restaurants and bars. The decor is a subtle mixture of tradition and modernity. It even has 20th-century Hungarian works of art on display, giving its guests a chance to admire the artistic heritage of the country as they roam the hotel floors. The welcome, the decor, and the available facilities are perfectly adapted to this category of hotel: you will enter a world of refinement and luxury the moment you step inside the lobby.

      This hotel is part of the Park Plaza hotel group, known for developing quite an original concept: a designer was invited to come and design the entire hotel. Donald Sultan from the USA designed the entire hotel: from the entrance to the rooms to the crockery and the paintings, what he has achieved is quite a success. Another particularity of this hotel is that its facade, facing the Parliament, is very modern, but the entrance leads into another, baroque-style building. The contrast between the modern and the baroque sections is truly fascinating for fans of architecture.
