Just completed a stay at the InterContinental Budapest, so thought I would share my experience there. Location: Located in central Budapest, right on the banks of (well, across a road from) the Danube River. Great location for walking to sights nearby. Right next to a tram stop and a short walk to a metro stop (which, as the second-oldest underground in Europe, is itself an attraction). Upgrades: I'm only an Ambassador (no longer an RA), so I received the standard one-level upgrade from a SUPERIOR ROOM to a SUPERIOR ROOM KING BED RIVER VIEW. I did not ask for and did not receive club access. Appearance: The hotel isn't much to look at from the outside, but the lobby and rooms are classy and nicely appointed. My standard room had a king bed and a sofa large enough to lay flat on, a coffee table, a work desk, and a bureau to hold the mini-bar and flat-screen TV. View: My room at the IC Budapest had the best view of any hotel I have ever stayed at. I was on a lower floor, but because there are no buildings opposite (the hotel essentially fronts the river across the road), I imagine that the view from the upper floors is pretty much the same. To lay on the bed and view the Buda Castle and the Matthias Church across the river is quite a sight, especially at night! Comfort: The bed was OK. My (king) bed had two of those European-style duvets instead of sheets, one duvet for each half of the bed. Bathroom: The smallish bathroom had a tub/shower combination with a hand-held shower head. Standard toiletries were provided. I'm not very picky about toiletries; even so, I didn't care for the bar soap too much, so I used a spare that I had brought with me. Security: A hotel keycard is required to access guest rooms from the elevator. The safe was barely large enough for my laptop -- and I have one of those ultraportable laptops! Internet: Both wireless and wired Internet access is available. Internet access was included in my rate, so I didn't note the cost. The speed was adequate, and I didn't experience any problems connecting or staying connected. Breakfast: Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was included in my rate; I needed only to provide my room number to the receptionist. The breakfast included a buffet with a made-to-order omelette station and a good selection of both hot and cold items. The buffet food was nothing special, but the omelette was much tastier than those at the Hyatts I often stay in. Check-in/Check-out: Check-in and check-out were fairly quick and painless. As promised at check-in, charges for internet and breakfast never appeared on my bill. Pet Peeves: As with most hotels I've been to, usable sockets (for laptop and other electronics) were available at the desk, but hard to find near the bed and the sofa. There were TV channels in many different languages, but the English-language channels were almost all news-related. (I found few movies, dramas, or sitcoms to watch in English.) Summary: One of the better IC experience I've had, and the view was the best I've seen! I would look forward to staying at the IC Budapest again.
