    Mercure Budapest Buda, Hungary

    by

    Its a huge Hotel, Lobby is big, rooms r big, Restaurants and Bars r big, size does matter in this Hotel .... :)

    I did stay on both parts of the city in Mercure Chain several times , Duna and Buda, this hotel named Buda, is perfect in location, u can reach the castle area in several minutes walk, and as u wanna see the other parts of the city, the tram and metro stations r just across to reach ...

    As said, rooms r big in m2, very comfy bed and pillows, nice bathroom, what I like is there is a little desk in each room even on standart rooms, for use for ur laptop, writing some memos etc, especially well point as u r on a business trip .... All plus in the rooms, and in case u have room facing the front side of the Hotel, u got the amazing view from ur window ...

    Bar in the Lobby is on a huge area, very well sorted drinks to socialize after a heavy day, breakfast is very good, waffles and cheese r very tasty, and most rated on my opinion is the staff, on all sectors, bartenders, housekeeping and all ...

    I highly recommend this Hotel either for ur leisure and / or business trips ...

    Directions: On the "Buda" side of the Danube River.

  • I recommend

    I have stayed a few days in this Hotel. My room was clean and cosy. Bathroom was large, new and clean. Pool was out of order so the guest could use pool in some other Hotel or Spa. There were some problems with the room keys, so I must go to reception a few times. Food was really, really good. And the best part is the location of the Hotel. Since, the Hotel is at the old Buda part, just in a few minutes when you take a walk thru the old tunnel you are in front of the chain bridge and the Royal palace. So, everything is close and you don’t have to use a public transportation.

    Directions: Near the Deli railway station

    Excellent value for money

    by

    I was originally slightly offput by the fact that the Mercure was near a train station and also that it was in Buda - the side of the Danube where there was "less action". However, these fears have proven to be unfounded. I have enjoyed a stunning view towards the castle from the 8th floor and have stayed in great comfort for a pittance - paying just EUR 32 for a room without breakfast on lastminute.de. The hotel is only about 200 metres from Deli pu., where there is an underground connection into the city centre (6 minutes on the underground and you are bang smack in the centre of things).

    The hotel is clean, well-appointed and has been recently refurbished. There is a business centre offering free internet access and upon arrival you are given a large number of information brochures to help you explore Budapest. The bathroom has a great shower, and the rooms are well equipped with a very comfortable bed. Views out toward the castle are well recommended. Other than the gentle whirring of a tram to be heard it is quiet and relaxing, and there are a lot of facilities to make use of in the hotel for a knock-down price.

  • At Castle District's Feet

    by

    We rented this hotel on a french online booker and i was pretty afraid of what we could find (the price was pretty decent for a 4 star). The hotel was pretty nice and the staff was polite and helpful (they advised us to go to a very close change office when we asked for change to save some money). We had a nice discount on the breakfast as we stayed 5 nights (10 euros instead of 16), and it was a very nice buffet with food for every tastes. There is also a fitness center we didn't try and a pool (my boyfriend just tried it once, it was ok but a bit dark). The room was huge and we were at the 7th floor which is a non smoking floor (you can choose when you check in).

    Unique Quality: Pool, nice view on a small park, close to metro and tramway station, Breakfast buffet.

    Directions: Near Deli palyaudvar metro station.

    Pleasant 4-star hotel in Buda

    by

    This huge (400 rooms) hotel is located in a pleasant surroundings in the business centre of Buda. There is a metro station just few hundred meters away. Trams and busses run just in fron of the hotel.

    The hotel has several restaurants, a fitness center, swimming pool etc.

    Unique Quality: The breakfast was excellent!

    Directions: It's near the South Railway Station and station of M2 underground line.

  • Excellent hotel, excellent location

    by

    My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights at the start of April. We thought this hotel seemed far out when we viewed its website but found it to be in a central location on the Buda side of Budapest, and right next to the castle district.

    Unique Quality: The service was excellent- and the breakfast was massive with everything from the finest freshly squeezed orange juice to all sorts of healthy, and not-so-healthy, foods. It would sustain you for the entire day. The two negative points are but small: we could get the stench of cigarette smoke in our bedroom on the 8th floor- we felt they should have the floors smoking or non smoking. For that matter, prepare yourself for a culture of cigarette smoke throughout Budapest- but then again we are coming from Ireland where smoking in bars and restaurants has been completely banned, so we probably notice the smoke more.

    Secondly, the showers and changing rooms down at the Jacuzzi and swimming pool were in need of renovation. The masseuse down in the gym was excellent, and very funny. Her limited english amounted to "Pain, Good!" followed by another painful whack! (and then a smile). She was the nearest thing to Nietzsche I've ever heard.

    Lastly, it was far and away the best value **** star hotel in Budapest- it cost us a total of 246 Euro for the two of us for 4 nights. We'd highly recommend it.

    Directions: It's just 10 minutes walk across the park to the foot of Budapest Castle. You can walk by the Danube and be at the Gellert baths in 25 minutes. It's a great location.

Would revisit the Mercure Buda

by TripAdvisor Member Globalone

September 2006, Just returned from a trip to Budapest staying at The Mercure Buda. I had read a few tripadvisor reports on the hotel prior to my visit and decided to book. The Hotel was two minutes from the Metro station, so having caught the train from the airport to the Metro it made our journey pretty straight forward. The staff were very helpful, the hotel was emaculate,our room was spotless; not the most modern room I have stayed in but comfortable and value for money. I would certainly recommend this hotel to friends.

Nice, quaint hotel for short stays

by TripAdvisor Member DLDVienna_VA

This hotel offers travelers a good value, especially if you book with a rate that includes breakfast. Breakfast is quite impressive -- offering full buffet with freshly baked breads and made-to-order egg dishes. As far as rooms are concerned, most rooms are small and somewhat dated. Although fairly clean, with exception of carpet stains, the rooms need to have a better layout, furnishings, and a stronger airconditioner. If staying here for business for just a few days, this place will do, since you are next door to subway and tram stops that can take you to the central parts of the city. Hotel staff were attentive and friendly, and always offering to help with your needs. Overall, this is hotel that, at best, is a three-to-four star quality establishment. I would stay here again, but not for tourism and definitely not for a romantic getaway. This hotel simply does not offer what the luxury hotels across the Danube offer.

I don't recommend this hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

I would not recommend this hotel. The standar rooms are very small. No ventilation in the bathrooms. Not working ventilation in my room. A standard set of TV programs is poor; if you want more channels you have to pay. If you take anything from a fridge in your room - they call it "mini-bar" (water, coca-cola, alcohol) you will be asked to pay it (it's pretty expensive) although you will not be warned in advance about this fact nor prices. I believe some people have better experience with this hotel, but I will not go there any more...

Good location, if the price is right

by A TripAdvisor Member

I stayed at the Buda in early May on a mixed business/sightseeing trip. The rooms are OK, but nothing spectacular, and the ones at the back of the hotel face a run down train station (the ones at the front face the Castle Hill). The breakfast is superb, and the hotel has all the amenities that you can think of. The location is very convenient for everything, it is between a metro station and two streets with bus and tram stops, you can get nearly anywhere in the city in less than 15 minutes. A night bus stops close by (but you need two of them from the center of Pest) and it is close enough to the center to take a taxi. Mass transport in Budapest is excellent and, if you do your homework, very cheap (hint: buy a 7 day travelcard if you stay even for 4 days). The hotel is however rather costly, considering that it is not in the center. It is a good choice if you want to stay at a quite good hotel for a non-exorbitant price, but the price/performance ratio could be definitely improved.

A Pleasant Stay

by TripAdvisor Member EUReviewer

The Murcure Buda, Budapest is a pleasant hotel. The check-in was straight-forward and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, with the usual facilities provided. The breakfast was plentiful and of good quality, and there is a chef there to cook scrambled eggs, omelettes, pancakes etc. The swimming pool was extremely cold, but is traditional in some parts of Central Europe. The hotel restaurant is fantastic for an evening meal, as there is a wide variety of fine food and wine. The hotel's location is reasonable, but not brilliant, although it is right by Deli Palyaudvar (South Station) which also houses the Line 2 Metro terminus. The are trams nearby too.

Acceptable

by TripAdvisor Member Abramis

Stayed here altogether couple of weeks. However, this was due to company arrangements.

Pros:

breakfast is ok. Staff is ok (not that great either). Food at breakfast room/restaurant is also acceptable for lunch/dinner. Location with some limitations - its close to castle district + there are some nice restaurants in this area.

Cons:
standard room is 2 star. Room is small. Average 80 euro or so. Bed is ok. Toilet is quite frankly bad, I lived during my stay in 2 different rooms, and this was the case in both bathrooms. I shopped nearby and filled mini bar, saved very nice amount with this. Using phone/internet in room is not smart, very expensive. Hotel had 2 public internet connection - real joke, so slow that lost my nerves there. Location, walking to Pest side is hard work. Close to hotel otherwise nothing interesting.

For whom this is right place you may wonder? For tourist coming for short stay its acceptable, assuming you are not going to ''enjoy'' the rooms excessively. Hotel is not really bad by no means, but it is not good either considering the price on average you end up paying. There are better 2-3 star choices around. I got 0 extras like room upgrade during my stay even tough spent there long time.

I thought for a mament it was the same hotel I stayed in - almost same name..
There is a review of your hotel in the Budapest guide here on VT. Take a look!

RE: Mercure Budapest Buda

by danbp

It is centrally located, though there are hotels indeed with better locations. It's next door to Buda Castle and Southern Station but it is relatively far away from nightlife areas and Pest downtown. The nearest malls are Mammut at Moszkva ter metro station (accessible by trams 18, 118, buses 21, 21 express and metro M2 from the hotel) and MOM Park at Csorsz utca tram stop (tram 61).
