Historical Traveller Reviews of Budapest Marriott Hotel
Welcome Luxuryfrom ormo69
Myself and my girlfriend stayed in this hotel at the beginning of February this year, after much deliberation due to the massive number of other options available. We weren't disappointed. Although the hotel doesn't look much from accross the river, you really don't get to look at it as you approach, and as soon as you get the entrance and foyer in view, you realise it's what's inside that counts anyway!
I don't personally get to stay 5 star often at all so have little to draw comparison with, but i'd struggle to see how anyone could fault this fine establishment. There are newer hotels but surely none better. From the marble and mahogony furnishings in the foyer and bar, to the unrivalled views of the river and castle, and the excellent food,.. This hotel didn't disappoint our high expectations!
Rooms were large and comfortable with every amenity you could expect, if perhaps a TAD dated, but clean and certainly nothing to complain about. The views of the river and the rates (only marginally higher we felt than a decent 3-4 star, and way cheaper than you'ld get in western Europe) were the main factors, along with the prior reviews, that sold us on this hotel.
The fantastic breakfast and helpful efficient service were welcome bonuses.
We must have sat and enjoyed every morcel of the buffet breakfast for a good hour and a quarter, with a waiter nearby whose sole purpose was to create the omelette of anyones' individual choice! Fab!
After a long days' rambling 'round the sites, it was an equally welcoming return offered by the relaxing piano bar, along with simply the all round luxurious 'feel' of the place.
If i were ever to return, it'd hurt me NOT to try stay at The Marriott again!
A very fine propertyfrom A TripAdvisor Member

One of the better hotels in Europefrom Coluche105
Putting aside the unattractive exterior which I find totally unimportant, the room was fantastic – a very comfortable king-sized bed with about six plump and luxurious pillows, plenty of storage space, including a large closet with iron and board, several drawers, and real bedside tables (as opposed to a sort of countertop with no drawers found in some of the Priceline 4 star hotels in Paris), quality furnishings and décor, a very nice bathroom with Neutrogena bath products, lovely fluffy white towels and good water pressure. Selection of TV channels was a bit limited in English (CNN, Sky, BBC Prime).
The fitness center (albeit not very clean…, particularly the changing rooms, but it is not run by the hotel) had a squash court and sauna, as well as exercise equipment with a magnificent view of the Danube; I used it daily.
The hotel personnel were very friendly, courteous and professional. I took advantage of both the breakfast buffet (pricey but good) and room service (excellent). I can highly recommend the vegetable lover’s sandwich if you’re hungry! Across the street in the Millennium Center, there is a Thai Massage center. I had a 90 minute foot and back massage for 4500 HUF ($23.00); great!
Due having made a last minute booking, my son stayed at the Hotel Meridien a few blocks away and was given a suite on the 9th floor. I therefore saw both hotels and can compare. I would take the Marriott in a split second, for the location, friendliness of personnel and general atmosphere. The Meridien has a tiny fitness center compared with the Marriott – but they do have a pool and whirlpool bath - and they are not on the Danube, plus I found the other hotel clients more than a tad stuffy! Near the Marriott is a McCafé (McDonalds, just across the street) with great cappuccino and delicious pastries.
I will definitely go back!
The location could hardly be better - the look canfrom Halimbalo
The facade is nothing more then ugly - not even one star.
(The facades of the neighborhood hotels Intercontinental and Soffitel are not pretty either).
The comfort and service inside is all right but for sure not what you can expect from a five star facility. Especially if you are expecting lower prices due to the fact that you are in one of the 'emerging countrys' you will soon learn that the price level is already very established.
If you are in Budapest you have to have a look at the brand new
Four Seasons (or Gresham Palace). One year ago this totally renovated hotel opened on the Buda-side at the opposite of the chain-bridge. Tremendous.
The Marriot is a good choice for tourists who want to explore Budapest.
If you are looking for a really distinguished sort of hotel you want to look for others like the Kempinski, the Meridien or - if you like to afford it - the Four Seasons.
Nice hotel good locationfrom Macker
Location, location, location........from Grafs
The location is perfect, the views from the balcony were good in daylight and fantastic at night when everything becomes floodlit. We booked on line and requested a balcony which we were given at no extra cost. All rooms have a view of the Danube and the historical buildings on the Buda side but not all rooms have a balcony so its worth asking. Breakfast was excellent, room was a standard European 4 star quality certainly not 5 star as we know it.
Restaurant meals were very good but as there is so much choice in the vacinity, it was nearly empty each night. Having been to Prague in November I would say that Budapest doesn't have the same wow factor that you get when you reach the view from Charles Bridge but I would say that the people seemed friendlier and the food and service was better.
If I ever return to Budapest then I would stay here again and would recommend this hotel to my friends. We paid just under £100 for the room and breakfast for two people which is very reasonable.
Last point - we were worried about all the talk of taxi's overcharging from the airport - when we exited the airport there was a girl organising taxis at a fixed price of 5200 HUF -approx £15 which I thought was good value. The same guy arranged to collect us for the return journey and was bang on the agreed time. It was worth the fifteen pound for the white knucle ride which if Disney could make a ride as good you would have to queue for hours to get on it!
Great Viewfrom pnagrows
Breakfast buffet is wonderful as long as it is included in the room price!
Overall, a comfortable touch of home in a unique and evolving city.

Top Local Tips for Budapest
Hotel Taxis avoid hotel taxis ask reception to call you a cheap taxi
Don't eat along Vaci Utca Don't eat along the pedestrian tourist area. The prices are high and the food is so-so. Walk along the other main streets of Pest and you'll find better restaurants at more affordable prices.
Choose your taxi carefully Most taxi drivers the world over drive like maniacs. Budapest drivers are no exception however they do have a set fee which is calcuated before the journey starts. Hotels have their own taxis which also have a set fee but are considerably more expensive so always have a zona taxi cab.
