Expert review of Le Meridien Budapest

Opulent, pricey Budapest hotel that oozes class throughout.

It would take a harsher critic than me to find fault with this hotel. Occupying the protected Adria Palace, it has an impressive lobby, a central atrium covered with a stained-glass dome, plush bedrooms and top facilities.

Location: 

In the city centre: overlooking Erzsébet tér, a very short stroll from Vörösmarty tér (and coffee and cake at the famed Gerbeaud) and the river.

Bedrooms: 

The 218 rooms (including 26 suites) are ranged around the central atrium. They vary in size according to price, but they are all richly-furnished with bedspreads adorned with floral motifs and curtains of gold and blue. The bathrooms include separate shower and tub, and have marble floor and sink. Free internet access is offered (via a cable – wireless comes at a charge).

Public areas: 

The lovely lobby features floors of green- and cream-coloured marble, hanging wall drapes and a central white-crystal chandelier. The lobby leads into the atrium, and the main restaurant beyond.

Eating and drinking: 

The formal Le Bourbon restaurant offers high-quality French cuisine, including a cheese selection which is sourced weekly direct from Paris. Adjacent to it is The Atrium, set beneath the stained glass dome of the atrium (the clue’s in the name), and more relaxed in tone. In addition to the usual lighter dishes and cakes, it hosts a brunch buffet on Sunday between 12pm and 3pm. There’s also a comfortable lobby lounge area and a bar with live piano music. The lavish buffet breakfast is not included in the room price.

Leisure facilities: 

For those interested in fitness and relaxation, there’s a health club on the top floor, featuring an atmospheric swimming pool covered with a roof of glass panels, a sauna, a steam bath and a gym.

Service: 

Immaculate and efficient.

I like the location here - by some of the main shops and within a minute or two's walk to the Danube. I'd definitely stay here again because of that. I think this hotel was formerly the secret police HQ in the Iron Curtain days. It's a good high-end hotel and with the Marriott literally round the corner from it, it's a good alternative to the US chain with a more Euro feel to it.
