We stayed at the Continental for 6 Nights early May 2022. I had this holiday booked since 2020 but it got cancelled due to the pandemic so rebooked March 2022. I will add before starting this that I very rarely write bad reviews but feel people should be aware what they’re paying for. I booked a standard room via another website which gave me a good deal. I was incredibly excited as the building looked beautiful, seemed like a good location, nice rooms and great facilities. We arrived at our room and it was a great size and bigger due to it being a corner room. It was sweltering hot so we turned the air on right up. After 30 mins we noticed the air con wasn’t working so my other half went to the front desk to ask for a fan and someone who did not speak great English followed him up to the room to show him the air con but we explained it didn’t work very well. We were eventually moved to another room with supposedly working air con. However after a few hours of being in the new room, we noticed there was the same issue as the original room so spent the entire week boiling hot and sweating every night. The bathroom was also very small so whenever someone showered the entire room just heated up, even with the bathroom door shut as ventilation was just so poor. Our shower screen also wasn’t great. After every shower we had to use a towel to soak up a massive puddle on the floor. The mini fridge didn’t work very well either. Only slightly cold and the thing kicked out some serious heat trying to keep it slightly cold which probably contributed to the temperature of the room. We also noticed that some days the cleaners would change the sheets and others they would just make the bed even if the sheets were dirty which was frustrating. We should’ve mentioned something but after causing a fuss over the air con we thought we had caused enough trouble but it was still annoying all the same. The wellness centre isn’t as big as what I thought it was from the photos. This was also disappointing. If people wanted to actually swim in the pool, you’d get no more than 2 people in and even then you wouldn’t be able to swim very well due to the short length of the pool. We also needed parking for 6 days which I thought was incredibly expensive ESPECIALLY for Budapest! €21 per night so €126 for our stay. My partner and I are also vegetarian & vegan and we had breakfast at the hotel 1 morning and were very disappointed with the choices and again the price. €30 for the two of us. We had been out just down the street to some lovely little bistros and cafes who had fantastic options, lovely food and cost much less than what the continental were charging so I would highly recommend just walking down the street for 5/10 mins and finding some lovely little gems. I will say that most staff were lovely and friendly and helpful at times. The building, entrance and lobby are also stunning but the beauty sort of stops at the entrance and the rest of it looks like a regular hotel. It wasn’t the worst hotel I have stayed in but it definitely wasn’t the best. If I were to return to Budapest I’d book an apartment for more space and much less money. I didn’t want to write a massively negative review but other than the option to use the wellness centre, The Continental offered nothing more than a usual hotel so I don’t think the price is justified. Overall the experience was ‘meh’ which was very disappointing having read good reviews and knowing it’s a 4 star hotel.

Amazing hotel

The hotel is beautiful, good located with tasty breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful. There are a lot of bars, restaurants and locations to visit near the hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable. The only thing is that the indoor swimming pool is small. Everything was perfect during our stay. Recommend. I would come back again

A Basic Hotel

This is a great place to stay if doing a quick city break, my partner and I stayed for the valentines weekend and the whole experience was fine - nothing more nothing less! If I was to return to the city, I think staying closer to the Danube would be slightly more aesthetic. My two issues with this hotel was our experiences with the staff; we found every person we interacted with to come across as quite harsh and like they had something better to do? Almost felt as if we were unwelcome - which is worrying considering its a hotel and the most important thing should really be guest satisfaction! The other thing was the cleanliness of the rooms; honestly it really wasn't great. Don't get me wrong it wasn't completely filthy it was just the bathrooms kind of looked like they hadn't been cleaned a great deal after the last guests.
