      Small Room Hotel in Business Location”

      Location and Wonderful Breakfast

      The stay was pleasant despite the fact that the staff at the rooftop bar was relatively unfriendly and had no service-mind. The room was small but very practical and the bed was comfortable. We had a wonderful breakfast, lots of choices from tasty warm and cold selections, the staffs at the breakfast room were very thoughtful, attentive and friendly. There is a wellness club and swimming pool at the Basement of the hotel, but with our booking, we were't entitled to use them, or unless we pay around EUR 15,- per person per day, which we found it, ridiculous for the guest to pay such amount to enter to the swimming pool at the hotel. The receptionists were helpful, though some speak little English, they tried much and put lots of efforts for us, so that we had an enjoyable stay in Budapest, thanks to the young receptionist girl, who were very friendly and attentive. About the location, we love it, the hotel located at the prime-business location of Budapest, very safe area to walk at night and all day long, only less than 2 minutes to US Embassy and a few minutes walk to the Metro Station and less than 10 minutes to Parliament House. Overall we are fairly happy with our stay at The President Hotel. Personally, we rate this hotel 3.5 stars.

      Friendly business hotel”

      Location was perfect for sightseeing in central Budapest. A well appointed hotel at a reasonable price.

      my objective was to see budapest mainly on foot, using a comfortable (i.e. uk 3 star standard) hotel at a reasonable price. hotel president delivered on this in all respects. it is a business hotel with all the facilities you might expect and yet the service was always friendly and personable. there are lots of restaurants nearby, but oddly, the best meal i had during my stay was in the hotel (pike perch. i hasten to add that this was in the ground floor, not the roof top restaurant. views were certainly good on the roof, but it felt like you were on a helipad, prices were very substantially higher and they insisted on playing loud music. i'd stay there again, if i had a similar deal ( around per night off peak).

      Locality, wellness, spacious room

      We got lost on the way to hotel because of wrong postcode set to my GPS. We called hotel and Peter explained everything needed to get to right place. He also took care of parking place for my car and helped with parking tips, fee, gave feedback about to restaurant we wanted to go to and add also some tips for private trip over the weekend. He really helped to fomr my opinion about hotel but also Budapest city itself. One cons - breakfast in minus one floor in place without windows - its a shame in such a beautiful city and hotel. Hotel is located in really city center, 2 minutes from St.Stephen Basilica,very nice wellness and also rooms.

      Great hotel with fantastic location”

      We were visiting Budapest for my partners birthday. We wanted a hotel that was in close approximaty to the Christmas markets and the main sites. The hotel delivered on all aspects. We were a 5 minute walk if that from the Christmas markets which was perfect. All the main attractions were close too. The hotel has a really nice roof terrace where you could get some great panoramic shots of the city. At night it was also beautiful up here with all the lights. When we went they also had an ice skate rink which wasn’t the best but you can’t argue for the money they charged to hire the skates. We still enjoyed ourselves. The hotel has a nice breakfast with a great choice of food. You can get your usually eggs bacon sausages, cereals, European breakfast, pastry’s etc. We would definitely go back to this hotel if we went back to Budapest and would recommend to anyone. For my partners birthday which I didn’t tell them about, we got a bottle of champagne in our room. Great touch.

      Centrally located, clean rooms, nice roof terrace

      The best times seem to be over for the Hotel President. The shops in the lobby area are closed, hard to believe that all the celebreties shown at the lobby stayed here. My room was clean, but very small with a single bed and a window to the back side. The breakfast will be served in the basement and is only average. Not much fresh things. The fruits on one day were not eatable. But the plus is the central location. It's just a few steps into the historic city center with a lots of restaurants and shops. It's 10 minutes walk away from the river and the Parliamt building.

      value for money, small in a good way, the view from the fifth floor is a photo opportunity, rooms are well furnished

      hope one day the management will realise what a great hotel it could be if breakfast could be served on the ground floor as opposed in the windowless basement.The hotel is in a great location, yet away from the loud hustle bustle of many other Budapest hotels.seven minutes walk from good restaurants and cafes, five min walk from the metro.Anyone interested in city architecture this is the place from where you could start your walks.

The room was clean and we'll equipped apart from a coffee machine or a kettle which would have been a welcome addition as rising early and going back later there was no where to obtain a hot drink at these hours.

      It's a big hotel and hard to miss with a prime location near to the metro and bus station. We explored Budapest during our daytime and mostly stayed in the hotel for sleeping at night. The rooms have air conditioning units which help in the scorching heat. The morning breakfast menu stood out. Also, we used the swimming pool and Sauna bath in the basement in the morning to freshen up. There's the minute problem of water clogging in the wash basin reported during checkout.

      Free Wifi, clean modern room, friendly service

      Before arriving we asked for a hotel transfer from the airport, we were surprised that our taxi turned out to be a limo! It also cost around the same (maybe a tad more) as a normal taxi (we found out on our return journey). The hotel itself is very nicely presented with a sort of retail area and a few interesting history pieces about the hotel in foyer before you get to the reception. All the staff were really friendly and spoke English. Hotel offered a very nice gym, spa and swimming pool for a fixed cost per day and roof-top restaurant and view. Room was very modern with a one side mirrored wall and mirrored ceiling(!). Had all the usual creature comforts, was nice and clean and normal sized for twin room. Room included an electronic safe (free to use). Buffet breakfast included, huge choice of food, hot food was the usual continental things. Very enjoyable and clean environment. Buffet was set in the basement floor so couldn't get wifi there.

      Lovely Hotel with a Couple of Issues”

      This is a lovely hotel with a great location. The hotel has a lovely frontage with a taller extension at the rear. A really nice bar / restaurant on the ground floor with a breakfast area on the lower -1 level which is big enough to cope. The quality and range of items for breakfast is really good, with Hungarian sparkling wine to start the day with a kick. Clean and Working Spa facilities too. It does however have a couple of disappointing things to be aware of, the room you see on the images may not be what you get. I booked a double standard room which would have been perfect, however we were given a standard inside room with a window onto the outside walkway, I wouldn't want to leave the window open. The room was very warm and would not cool down. We were offered the only other option available as the hotel was full, this room was too small and had the bed pushed up against the wall. Not practical for 2 adults at all. Just make sure you get an outside room as advertised.
