The hotel needs a new management. It's a beautiful hotel but is run poorly. The cleaning Lady walked into our room without knocking while my wife and I slept. Next night 7 to 8 drunk guests partied in the hallway in front of our room. I was told they were Swedish guests who had few extra drinks. Manager tried to...

The hotel offers high quality service and facilities. Excellently situated for walking access to the highlights of Budapest such as the Danube. The staff were very helpful with directions to the various sites of interest, bars etc. The rooms were spotless and the breakfasts excellent.

I work for an international organization as the head of the Hungarian office. In 2015 our organization received the honor to organize a meeting for the European partner organizations with 80 participants from 25 different countries. We chose this hotel as a venue. I have to say that we couldn't have done a better choice than Continental Hotel Zara Budapest....

First of all the location is the best as this neighbourhood is my favorite in the town, close to everything and very vivid. The room was very nice and clean and the bed confortable. I liked the decoration and the fact they provide bathrobe (although i didn't use it) and sleepers.These were the good aspects. The very bad was that...

Just returned from 3 nights at this hotel. Lovely lobby area and a great impression when you enter the hotel. Check-in quick and easy and staff gave us a little information pack with top sights, local resraurants etc which was good. As mentioned in other reviews the rooms are on the small side but this wasn't a problem for us....

Overall this is an excellent hotel. The staff are very helpful and friendly and couldn't of done more for us. Excellent selection for breakfast and a very nice restaurant. May be the only very slight downside was the location which is a little walk away from the main drag at Vaci Ut, but it serves to work off some of...

Just returned from a weekend stay at the Continental Hotel Zara with my mum to celebrate my 40th birthday. The hotel has a luxury feel without the huge price tag. Many of the original features of the old spa bath building still exist in the lobby. Rooms are tastefully decorated. Ours was a bit small but ok for 3 nights...

Excellent stay at Zara Continental Hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities and a mini bar. It was compact but everything that was needed was supplied. Very good location close to everything. Restaurant was very good too. Terrific value.
