My husband and I just completed a 3-night stay at the InterContinental Budapest. While the rooms are a bit dated, the views over the Danube River looking out to Buda Castle are truly show-stopping. The hotel is well-positioned right on the riverfront and just on the north side of the inner city, with public transportation a couple hundred meters away. We would stay here again due to the location, views, and the yummy breakfast (hubby always prefers to start the day with breakfast at the hotel). As of our time there (July 30-August 2), the following COVID limitations are in place: 1. Housekeeping - Running as usual. Daily cleaning and replenishment of toiletries, water (for Ambassador), Nespresso coffee capsules, and tea bags. 2. Breakfast - No buffet offered, but rather, a la carte for a flat rate (served between 06:30-12:00). You can select what you want and as much as you want. Typically the buffet costs 28 Euros per person per day, but it seems they are offering this table service at a reduced rate of 20 Euros. However, when we checked in, we were offered a special of 20 Euros for TWO people per day, which is a steal in my opinion due to what is offered and the quality. I believe it’s due to the current low occupancy, but it definitely made this guest a happy camper. If it isn’t offered to you, it’s worth at least asking about it. I am attaching a menu, but note that specialty coffees ARE available (just not shown on the menu - e.g. cappuccino, latte macchiato, espresso). 3. The gym, pool, and lounge are unfortunately still closed. 4. Corso (lobby/terrace restaurant) is open for all meals and drinks (full menu on their website is being offered). Hours are 06:30-23:00. Breakfast is served at Corso and the outdoor seating during warm mornings is a great start to the day. 5. Room service is also running as usual. We truly enjoyed our long weekend stay at the InterContinental and Budapest in general. While some things in the city are still closed, I would estimate a good 80% has reopened. We didn’t feel limited at all and we enjoyed it more than our first visit in 2017. Perhaps this was due to the great weather and that the city wasn’t sprawling (overrun) with tourists. There were significantly fewer tourists than our mid-Oct 2017 visit. On a final note, we would highly recommend the Legenda dinner cruise, especially on good weather evenings because they open the top/sides and it’s literally an open-air restaurant gliding on the waters of the Danube. The reception/concierge suggested this to us and we were thoroughly impressed — great food, unbelievable views, and a romantic atmosphere. We would pay to do it again on another visit to Budapest. I did add one picture of it (the one with the parliament all lit up in the background). Two thumbs up from both of us. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

I love this hotel. Very close to all the places you would want to visit in Budapest. Its just right next to the bridge. I love the fact that it's also not too far from my favourite ruins pub so we didn't have much trouble getting back to the hotel drunk ahaha. Staffs are friendly. Clean rooms. I will definitely stay at Intercontinental for my next travels. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

I recently stayed at Intercontinental Budapest for a 3 night stay. The hotel is perfectly located, as central as you can be in Budapest. It's a beautiful building at the most ideal possible location, right in the heart and center of Budapest in district 5. Walking distance from the Danube River promenade and with a beautiful view of the river, It doesn't get any better. My check-in was smooth as all Intercontinental Hotels though less courteous than what I am used to. Strangely, noone was provided to take luggage to my room. Though I don't mind it much, it can be an issue for some travellers. My room was at 4th floor. It was spacious and tidy with a nice view, comfy bed and all typical IC amenities available. Nespresso Coffee Machine is provided, USB charging port is a good upgrade as you can charge your phone directly even if you don't have an European socket. In a nutshell, good room. House keeping though facing language barrier, was adequately responsive during my stay. All the rest of staff mostly act as statues in a limbo. Not replying to greetings, not coming forward for anything, though not rude as well. I found them so mechanical that one can't fail to notice. I have posted a separate review about the restaurants in the hotel, but staff attitude at the restaurants was quite plastic too, except one girl, who was always efficient and concerned. Other than that, noone visited my table even once. Intercontinental Budapest is a nice clean hotel, the location is perfect. Only thing missing is the welcoming staff. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
