E.N. Story


Zara continental hotel

Budapest is known for its decent and inexpensive accommodation options. You may find lots of hotels that are more affordable than Continental Zara, but it won’t be easy to find one that combines quality, luxury and reasonable prices, like this one does!

It is a charming 4-star Boutique Hotel, which guarantees a pleasant stay and offers services/commodities that satisfy even the most demanding customers’ needs. It is located next to the Rákóczi main street, while it is only a 10-minute walking distance away from Vaci Utca, Budapest’s famous pedestrian street, and 12 minutes away from the Elizabeth Bridge. Blaha Lujza metro station (Metro Line M2) stands within 250 meters from the hotel. The hotel is housed in a well-preserved listed building, with art nouveau design and a prestigious interior that could put lots of 5-star hotels to shame! It offers great service and access to a variety of facilities, such as both outdoor and indoor pools, a gym, Jacuzzi, a spacious lobby, a roof garden with a panoramic view, a courtyard and places where you can enjoy your meal, drink or coffee. Also, the staff’s politeness and willingness to help, offering lots of useful information about the city, is a factor that leaves everyone with a great impression.

“A charming 4-star Boutique Hotel”

The rooms are decorated in warm, welcoming colors, with really comfortable, soft and relaxing beds. The hotel also provides plenty of useful amenities, like slippers, towels, a hairdryer, some care products, a safe, personal heating/cooling system, sheet changes, a minibar and wifi (somewhat slow). Furthermore, their daily cleaning services keep the rooms “fresh” and tidy.

Finally, the hotel’s breakfast buffet deserves a special tribute, as it includes everything that you could ask for, amazing in both taste and quality! Our room’s price for the Christmas holiday season was at 75€/day (really reasonable for that time period). Continental Zara Hotel will definitely be on the top of our list next time we visit Budapest! Highly Recommended (H)
