      very good hotel best location”

      comfortable, very good staff, very clean, quiet place

      mercure city center hotel is ideally located in very center of budapest, in famous vatci utca (main pedestrian street) where lot of h palaces, places of interest, restaurants and shops can be found. well known bridges connecting banks of danube river are in close proximity as well. it’s walking distance to all attractions and museums. hotel is very well managed, great service, rooms are very spacious, clean with refrigerator, safe, good aircon system, modern bathroom, but bed could be more comfortable (too soft mattress is not what i prefer). hotel provides free wireless and can arrange taxi to pick you up/take you to the airport - one way 23 euros). next to hotel is excellent italian restaurant which i would warmly recommend (avoid those restaurants with "traditional cuisine" on huge square situated right from hotel and next to new shopping mall, its lousy food there, not worth the money!) budapest is definitely one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but 2 -3 days will be quite enough to see the most important city can offer. i would definitely stay again in hotel mercure city center if i go again to capital of hungary ! please note, if you want to stay in very center, make sure you booked “mercure city center hotel” since there are several “mercure” hotels in the town.

      Very good location

      The Mercure Budapest City Center Hotel is very good located in the centre of the city, in THE shopping street of town where no traffic is allowed. It has 2 entries, very near metro and busstops for airport, etc. It has a good bar with free internetpossibility and they serve also good food. Just opposite is a moneychanger with good rate, restaurants in all priceclasses, pubs, minimarkets, etc. Good hotel for a fare price.

      great location well maintained good staff

      A group of friends stayed for nearly a week at Mercure while attending the Formula 1 race. The hotel was very well located in the tourist area, but within easy walking distance of Metro stations to go elsewhere in the city, and easily serviced by taxis. Location is near the river, great area for walking, some shopping, lots of restaurants. Hotel was clean and well maintained. Included buffet breakfast had a good selection of food, good quality. Room was a bit small but was comfortable and clean. Staff was very helpful, helping us with directions, restaurant reservations, taxis, etc. Price was right. I would stay again, with friends or a family on a return to Budapest.

      Great location down town Budapest”

      Excellent location within walking distance of all points of interest in Budapest

      this hotel is right downtown budapest, within easy access of all points of interest in budapest, the hotel is located within 2 minutes from the danube river, right opposite the buda castle. the hotel is 5 years old, and the rooms really look like they were 10 years old, dirty wooden floors, that really needed a caring hand, or rather a good wash and polish. we stayed there for 1 week, and did not see the floors being washed once, only vacuumed. we have stayed in other accor hotels around the world and normally the rooms and the cleanliness of the rooms are top notch, but i regret to say that this particular mercure property, did not live up to the usual standard. the room was kind of small with only uncomfortable dinning room type of chairs, no proper lounge chairs in the room, so the only place you could really sit/lie to read, if this was what you would want to do, was in the bed. hotel had free wi fi and breakfast included (the breakfast was really nice), which was one of the reasons we picked this hotel. we would probably not choose this hotel again, as there were several other hotels availble in and around the same ares.

      The hotel is conveniently located in Vaci Utca (the city center) and around 10 minutes walk to The Chain Bridge and Budacastle. Around the hotel there are many restaurants, cafes and Pubs, and 3 minutes away from underground station.The hotel has great selection of breakfast. nonetheless, the bed was a bit hard and not so comfortable but will still strongly recommend this hotel as a starting point to explore Budapest.

      Stayed for 4 nights at Budapest Mercure. Pros 1. Awesome location. 4 bus stops away from Keleti Station. 5 minutes walk from bus stand and Metro Line 1 and a 10 minute walk from Metro Line 2 and Tram Line 2. In a 30 minute walking radius you can cover all the top sightseeing places and close to Lion's Fountain from where Free Walks start 2. Decent and Clean rooms 3. Tons of eating and drinking options within 2 minutes. Cons 1. Breakfast wasn't included and is a little pricey (17 euros).

      Location, breakfast

      i visited a couple mercure hotels around the world and had always the impression that there was a disproportionate investment in common areas (reception, bar,...) comparing to the rooms (except for the one in hanoi). the room (and bathroom) was realy tiny and furniture worn out. not what i would call a romatical setting. i've been in 3-star hotels with better rooms. elevators also extremely slow. on a more positive note, the hotel is located in the center of pest and in consequence near public transportation. breakfast is also very good and varied. balancing pros and cons, i think the hotel offers good value for money after all. still, i would look for a better alternative for my next stay.

      We were really impressed with the front desk especially Zsolt Voros at reception. he is polite and extremely alert - able to give you alternative suggestions for day trips out of Budapest when the one you picked does not operate on Tuesdays. He even remembers your room number and asks about the tour you made the previous day. If only the housekeeping staff was as attentive to details like replenishing bath supplies after the first day...
