Beautiful hotel and good location. Room size and amenities good. Reception staff quite grumpy and curt. The real issue is that they turned off the air conditioning for the winter. Even with the window opened, the room was stifling hot. I am sure this saves the hotel money but it made for a very uncomfortable stay.

Dear Guest, As for a start, I would like to thank you for staying at our Continental Hotel Budapest and for taking your time to share your sincere experiences. Needless to say, that we both appreciate positive remarks and constructive criticisms too. On the one hand, I am pleased that you loved our beautiful, ideally located hotel itself and enjoyed the convenience of your well-appointed room. On the other hand, I noted with concern that our Reception staff did not live up to your expectations. I am very sorry that you did not manage to experience their friendly hospitality. Please, accept my apology for all the inconveniences encountered. Regarding the room temperature, please note, that this late summer weather in the middle of october is absolutely unusual in Hungary. I sincerely hope that the above mentioned did not shadow your overall stay and you left us with nice memories. We wish to have an opportunity to better serve you and prove you that we are worthy of an excellent ratings indeed! Best regards, Zoltán Géher General Manager

Hotel was very nice and in a great location - easy to walk to all the Budapest sights. Lobby and actual hotel were nice however the room was a little dated from the pictures so was little bit dissapointed with the nightly rate
