9/10 Fantastic

29 November 2017

Down(town) but certainly not out (of the way)

This hotel is in downtown Pest but it is only a short stroll to the Danube. Amazingly well restored hotel in real Budapest. Surrounded by quaint little coffee shops and great restaurants. There is an Italian next door. Fabulous food. Breakfast is expensive and not worth it, especially if you are veggie. The restauesb too crowded so we ate there once and didn’t return. The staff friendly and helpful and the mezzanine cocktail bar a real treat. It is not far (10 minutes) walk to the Erkel theatre also, so good for opera or concerts. We walked everywhere as the Parliament and shops are not far away. The reason one are nice but you have to pay to use the pool and sauna.

The best thing about my stay was...

Walking to the Danube at night

Great Hotel in Budapest

Continental was a very beautiful hotel just off a side street very close to the city centre, really good location although the street it is situated on is a bit grubby. It is in walking distance of everything, bring a good pair of walking shoes!!!! The rooms are a bit small but very clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly. I would stay here again as I liked how clean the hotel is. Budapest is beautiful and definitely worth a visit, can't wait till I go back again.

Not worth the money

Stayes for 4 nights. The breakfast was by far the only pleasant experience! For 110 per night we expected the pool area to be free of charge, but yet they cared €8 per person per day. Sun loungers were scares, which meant that there could've been a good chance of not getting a lounger at all. The service wasn't great either. I don't expect anyou e to roll out the red carpet, I am simply talking about a little friendlyness goes a long way. The rooms were alright nothing to rave on about. One of the day we got soiled towels instead of fresh ones! On the other hand the location is good.

The best thing about my stay was...

Breakfast. Location.

Clean and well located

We used the hotel as a base and it was ideally situated for this. Very clean, although the room was a little small after they had added another be for my son (I expected it to be bigger as it was advertised as sleeping three). Loved the rooftop pool but resented having to pay extra for it as this is the reason I chose the hotel.

The best thing about my stay was...

Watching the sun go down on the rooftop.

Great service, bad location.

Great service, bad location. The hotel is lovely and promt on email replys and willing to help with anything. Although they advertise a roof top pool it is not included in the price of your room. The area is located in a dirty part of the city and is also not central.

A Fine Budapest Hotel

A pleasant stay close to centre of Budapest, set back in a side street away from the main street. Good size clean room with air con, a comfy bed and a good shower /bath. A lovely buffet breakfast was enough to fill a hearty appetite. It was relaxing to spend time in and around the roof top pool, although i felt this should have been included in the price of the room.

The best thing about my stay was...

I was really please to find a kettle which meant I could make tea!!

Continental Hotel Zara Budapest review June 2015

A very good mid-priced hotel located 10-15 mins walk from the Danube/City Centre. Located on a quiet side street, and although not in the nicest part of the city, it is perfect for night life with the best ruin pubs and numerous eating venues close by. Most city attractions are within walking distance. The hotel has free wifi and the only downside was the high cost of using the rooftop pools/gym/steam room at 9 euros per day. As other reviewers have already commented, this really ought to be free for residents.

The best thing about my stay was...

Excellent buffet breakfasts
