We stayed in the Iberostar Grand Hotel Budapest for 4 nights and from start to finish the staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming. The hotel itself is immaculate and the room was stylish and spacious with a huge comfortable bed and views over the square. The location is great for sightseeing and for restaurants, with plenty of high quality places to eat a short walk away. Overall I can highly recommend staying here if you want to visit Budapest in style.
Elegant and tasteful , modern hotel , music theme present but not overpowering .
Excellent location and great roof terrace overlooking st Stephens basilica . Lovely staff and tatty breakfast , have the nuts and yoghurt thingyx would highly recommend and you must go to gelateria rosa up the street
"Pleasant hotel walking distance to all attractions"
We arrived after dark and the area around the hotel is so viby, with al fresco diners and drinkers, yet it fees safe and civilised.
Given the liveliness I was slightly worried about noise levels but we were given a 7th floor room and there was no noise at all.
The hotel staff are efficient and fast, and the room was cleaned to a good standard.
The location is as good as it gets in my view. You get the liveliness of Pest on your doorstep, and are still a very reasonable walking distance to Buda.
In a nutshell, if you are looking for a nice place to stay in a great location without breaking the bank this hotel is perfect.
We spent a week in Budapest at La Prima in April 2016. Check in was quick and easy and our room was already available at 12:30. The room was not huge but a decent size for a city centre hotel , wardrobe space was a bit tight for two peoples' clothing for a week , then again my senior partner does not scrimp on frocks etc. Our room was quiet and the window faced into a courtyard (we could still see the sky). The cleaning service was excellent .
The breakfast buffet was good and changed daily. Reception was always manned and the staff were really helpful.
The location was just off Budapest's main shopping area (within 50 m of Marks and Spencer) near the Elisabeth Bridge and Danube riverside walk (No. 2 Tram) and 5 -6 minutes from Deak Ferenc square (Metro and No. 16 Bus).
Will we stay here again ? Definately
The hotel was clean and comfortable. The hotel staff were really nice and polite, also very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them.
Breakfast was quite good for a buffet style breakfast, food and drinks were constantly being topped up. Even though it was self service it was staffed so was always someone there to help you if you needed anything.
The location was great, quite a few restaurants and cafes around, had something for everyone. There wasn't many lively bars around or places to drink past 12, which i suppose is either a positive or negative depending what you are looking for. The hotel bar is open 24 hours, which is very quiet and was hardly used when i stayed there, (in May).
This hotel has an amazing location and that should be enough of a draw to book. the staff are very helpful. the rooms are large but a bit run down, this seems to be all over Budapest though and some renovation was being done on the front entrance during my stay.
The room was spacious clean warm and had everything required. The hotel feels very secure, but its really the location that is the best thing about it. It is an easy walk all over the Pest side and outside the hotel is the Elizabeth Bridge to take you over to the Buda side.
On the eastern side of the Danube, Pest is Buda’s flatter, edgier cousin. Tree-lined Andrassy Avenue was originally designed as Budapest’s answer to the Champs-Elysees. Heroes’ Square lies at the eastern end of Andrassy Avenue and is home to the impressive Millennium Monument. Hungarian gifts, food, and souvenirs can be found in Pest’s multi-storey Great Market Hall, the largest in Budapest.
