I agree with everything said about this hotel. The service was outstanding and the situation of the hotel was excellent - well within reach of all major attractions. Club Lounge access is well worth having as you can get just about anything you want from early morning until 10 pm - breakfast, elevenses, afternoon tea - you name it they...

The rooms were beautiful,huge and elegantly decorated and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. There is nothing better than coming back to the Ritz after a long day of walking around run-down Budapest..The only points of criticism that I...

Stayed at the Ritz Carlton hotel during a short visit to Budapest. It's definitely a 10 out of 10. Everything you would expect, without having to ask for anything. Clean rooms, good food, very polite & professional staff & service - sets a very high standard for others to compete with. There is lots to do in the city -...

I can't think of much to add to all the positives. The hotel is quite new and wasn't busy which is probably why we managed to get the opportunity to stay at a 5* hotel which would normally be beyond our budget. The hotel is in a great location, has very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast was good and the...

Rooms are well-appointed with the usual amenities and breakfast was fine. Club level afforded a more private experience with a good choice of food and drink but the single most factor that made the visit everything we could have wished for was the truly outstanding customer service.

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ritz-Carlton, Budapest, is housed within a protected historic building, located on Elizabeth Square, with views over St Stephens Basilica. Constructed in 1914 as the headquarters for an Italian insurance company, Adria Palace, the building has seen many incarnations, but today it's open as a luxury property with 170 elegantly appointed rooms and 30 suites. Whilst many of the building's original architectural details have been retained, including elegant statues on the exterior walls, the interiors offer guests a spacious and relaxed contemporary environment, inspired by the cool colours and swirling water of the Danube River. The Ritz-Carlton Club Level is situated on the 8th and 9th floors of the property, allowing guests an elevated experience and an additional sanctuary, with dedicated concierge, plus complimentary food and beverage presentations running throughout the day. Introducing two restaurants and a bar to the Budapest scene, the unrivalled Deak Street Kitchen provides a relaxed and atmospheric environment and serves a variety of Hungarian-inspired dishes, created using local seasonal ingredients, and freshly grilled meat & fish, alongside one of the city's finest selections of indigenous Hungarian wines and beers with an elegant outside terrace overlooking vibrant Fashion Street. The Kupola Lounge, situated beneath the building's iconic stained glass cupola and grand crystal chandelier, is ideally placed for a leisurely farmer's market breakfast or light lunch overlooking the hotel lobby. The Ritz-Carlton, Budapest, also houses a fresh, contemporary bar. Combining sleek finishes with the building's uncovered original architectural columns, the Kupola Bar focuses on serving innovative cocktails in a metropolitan, sophisticated ambiance. ... more   less
