Rated 5 out of 5 by Jgdeux Room with a view
our experience in Budapest was made special by the hotel, staff, food, location and activities
Our room overlooked the central square with Ferris wheel spinning away. The concierge was helpful with tour tips and resturantant choices.
However one did not need to leave the hotel
To enjoy a great meal. Le Bourbon is excellent with a true European flair. Friday night there is a Hungarian feast with sumptuous cuisine and music and dances. It is THE hotel in Budapest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Voyageurs2014 An Elegant, Very Well Run Modest-Size Hotel
We felt comfortable, welcomed, and well cared for in a gracious and unobtrusive manner. The staff were/are excellent, from the front desk to housekeeping, to the concierge, to the young men in the lobby bar. We had a marvelous, albeit short, stay. When we return to Budapest we will definitely book into the hotel. In the meantime we will recommend the hotel to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PKJ2010 Fantastic staff, service and location!!
Staying at the Le Meridien on our Easter long weekend trip to Budapest was the best decision of the trip. The hotel's location is literally steps away from all the major attractions - the Danube, St. Stephens Basilica and the beautiful Synagogue, not to mention tonnes of bars, restaurants and clubs. We bought hop on hop off tickets for our 4-day trip and between that and walking, never needed a single cab. The staff were phenomenal - helped get us reservations to some of the top restaurants in the area, tickets to the baths that helped us skip the line, and of course Platinum room upgrade and free buffet breakfast in the mornings. We had a great time and can't wait to go back again!!

This has so far been the greatest hotel experience in Budapest ever. We stayed for the easter weekend, the service, friendliness of staff, room requests were accommodated, sunday brunch was an absolute blast. From check in staff to bell boys I have never experienced such a smooth hotel stay. Thank you very much to everyone for making our stay an absolute 5 star enjoyment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Evans A very poor example of a Starwood Hotel
This hotel had no interest whether you were a starwood member or not. In my experience being a member was more of an inconvenience. Reception staff were intimidating bordering rude,however arrogant was probably more descriptive. The only guests who seemed to be getting looked after were the ones who were part of the Viking Cruise.
Concierge were very helpfeul, completly different from reception staff.

Rated 1 out of 5 by habsfan Disappointing Stay - Poor Security!
I had my door opened when I was in my room TWICE; the first by the cleaning staff and not sure who by the second.
The DND sign was posted but when my room service tried to deliver something, they called my room waking up my 2 year old.
If you are a light sleeper, this hotel is NOT for you as you can definitely hear all street noise.
Am curious to hear GM's feedback. Overall, disappointing stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mgcnyny Some not great little things
Dear Meridien, I do love your hotel and this was my 7th visit with you. But two things that were annoying happened. First, I ordered Breakfast on Wed delivered to my room. I asked for it at a specific time, and it didn't show up. I called after 30 minutes and the man answered and said he was on his way. The latte was barely warm. And I think if I hadn't called, I would never have gotten the food. In the middle of the night on Thursday the smell of sewage from the bedroom woke me up it was so foul. With outside temps at 2C I opened the window and tried to survive. It was fixed the next day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gms52 Le Meridien Budapest
An excellent hotel, large rooms, good services. Only negatives were a soft mattress and the hotel did not replace the bottles of complimentary water on a daily basis. Breakfast in the hotel was over the top expensive but there was a Starbucks and other venues very close. Location of the hotel was terrific for all Pest sights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LCS1962 exceptional facility and staff in best location
We stay in many Le Meridian properties and they are always known for location, comfort and style and this Budapest location is no exception.
We were delighted at the warm rich design of the facility and rooms. We were amazed that the staff was so well trained to know their facility and city; it made our 4 night trip a pleasure. This property is not to be missed.

I love this hotel. Room was very clean and big. As a platinum member, I was upgraded to a nice suite. Breakfast was excellent. The staffs went above and beyond to meet your needs. Special thanks to Regina and Valeria at the front desk. Excellent job with all the staffs. Nothing to complain. I will definitely recommend and stay at this hotel again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by swheel27 Nice room, great service, excellent location
We stayed here for a babymoon in mid 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were in an Executive Room, which was spacious and comfortable, with a luxurious bathroom. The only negative of the stay was the bed, which was harder than we'd hoped. But we'd likely stay here again. The location within Budapest is hard to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex Great escape to relax while on bussines
During my stay I enjoyed especially in the evenings having fantastic local wines and listening to nice music in the bar. Staff for very friendly and informative. They gave me useful tips for restaurants nearby with excellent cuisine. Perfect location to have a nice walk in the historic city.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Captain2014 room for improvement
I have stayed in this hotel many times. The staff are friendly and approachable.
The recent lobby upgrade is very nice. I am disappointed that the rooms have not been improved yet. I stayed in room 419, there was a leaky tap and there was a leak from the shower seal to the bath. The bathrobe was also of poor quality. It used to be much better.
I don't find the restaurant very appealing and I went to the Kempinski for dinner and I was impressed by the bistro there. Overall, it is a good hotel but a bit tired looking at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nkrnic Great as always
My favourite hotel in Budapest, and one of the best overall. Staff is very kind, the room thoroughly clean, position exceptional and I would not need more for a business stay. I never been to the spa and pool, and will probably do so one of the next times when visiting privately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HNM44 Great Hotel with excellent Loction
My wife and I loved the hotel with great location and service. I would have given a perfect score except for one encounter we had with one individual (Mr. Nagy) at the recpetion desk. He was quite unhelpfull by responding negatively and without taking any initiative to rsolve the issue. However, when I checked with another individual the following day, the issue was resolved immediatley due to the second gentleman's initiative and positive and professional attitude. Breakfast selection and quality was excellent; The dinner quality was good with attentive service.

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location. The staff was very helpful as far as assisting with restaurant recommendations and reservations, and arranging transportation. The room was very spacious and had a great view. The beds were extremely comfortable, and the bathroom shower was the best that either of us had ever experienced!
