Address: Vaci utca 22, , Budapest, 1052, Hungary

Star rating:
4 star hotel

4

Clean, comfortable, and one of very few places to stay on Váci utca.

I’d feared this place might be a characterless tourist trap cashing in on its location. However, it’s part of the Mellow Mood Group – which has made a really good fist of several hotels in the city – and it’s a pretty classy three star. It makes an excellent choice for those who don’t need all-singing facilities and want to be based in the thick of the shops and restaurants.

Location

Anchored on the city’s most famous street, Váci utca, which runs parallel to the river at the very centre of the city and contains the bulk of the boutiques. Top restaurants, cafés and the main sights are readily accessible from here. Bustly and busy, you couldn’t call it a quiet spot, but the rooms are well-insulated from the noise.

Bedrooms

The Promenade has only been open a year or two, and the 45 rooms remain in good nick. They are well laid out, with a wall-mounted TV and a little desk, and have a soothing colour scheme of chocolate brown. There’s free WiFi, air con and soundproofing – important because Váci utca is a lively street.

Public areas

There’s a small, minimalist-style reception area and a glass lift serving the six floors. The breakfast room is on the top floor.

Eating and drinking

No restaurant or bar, but there are plenty of restaurants and bars within very easy striking distance.

Service

I've always found the receptionists to be helpful.
