We thoroughly enjoyed our stay...the only negative aspect to the room would be that the fridge was not cold enough.Comment of M. Darren , United Kingdom the 2015-03-27

The best hotel i have ever stayed in! on entry to the hotel you will be speechless! the hotel staff did everything they could to make our stay the best possible. The Cafe takes you into a world that many will never experience. such beauty and history - it really is the oldest and most beautoiful cafe in the world. Hotel Location is amazing - the hop on/hop off stop is just outside the hotel and plenty of restaurants, bars and shops only a few minutes walk from hotel... I could continue to praise the hotel - its def 5* - all i would say is GO EXPERIENCE IT!!!!Comment of L. Karl , United Kingdom the 2013-12-03
Ein fantastisches Hotel. Wir sind wegen unserer Hochzeitsvorbereitungen in Budapest öfters da und lieben dieses Hotel.Comment of B. Melinda , Germany the 2013-12-01
Sehr schönes Hotel welches ich gerne weiterempfehlen kann allerdings hört man in den zur Hauptstraße gelegenen Zimmer den Verkehr - insbesondere Straßenbahn.Comment of R. Andreas , Germany the 2013-12-01
Albergo bellissimo, in palazzo storico, camere grandi ed eleganti. Posizione semi centrale ma funzionale . Il punto forte: la colazione servita al New York cafè vale da sola il prezzo della camera!Comment of R. Simone , Italy the 2013-11-22
"Total luxury in Budapest"
Its a unique experience staying in a tourist attraction but having breakfast sitting in a gilded room is certainly memorable. The bustle of camera toting visitors can get a little wearing but at least there is always something going on! Check in was seamless, everyone in the hotel is very helpful and knowledgeable. We had a huge exec room with a balcony overlooking St Stephens spire. The bathroom was great, the bed was huge. Everything was fab. We stayed in the Boscolo Prague and would certainly recommend this brand.
"Gorgeous Hotel With A Couple Of Minor Flaws"
After extensively researching our hotel options for a week in Budapest, we settled on the Boscolo. In looking at the pics, I was immediately struck by the cathedral-esque appearance of the building's facade, the classic public spaces and, most importantly, modern rooms. We booked the Exclusive Room, which is slightly bigger than the smaller room categories. Our arrival at the Boscolo was met by a friendly valet gentleman who whisked our bags off and directed us to the arrival area. Once inside, we were asked for our last name so that the bags could go to the correct room. Then we made our way to Reception for check-in by a friendly staff. One of the managers even came around to greet us and thank us for our Marriott status. This hotel has one of the most genuine and caring groups of employees I have seen at any property. If we ran into staff in the hallway, they would always greet us with a big smile and a "Good morning!" The room was modern and airy, with a large outdoor terrace. We didn't use the terrace more than once due to the cold weather, but it would be gorgeous during warmer times. The room was very comfortable, with fabulous bath products and linens. The bathroom is an open concept, which improves the spacial feel of the room, but is awkward if staff come to the room as there is no barrier between the shower and entry door. We were a bit appalled by how dirty the carpet was! It was severely stained near the bed and windows. This was not acceptable for a hotel that strives to be a 5-star luxury property. I just wore slippers around for the three nights and reported it to reception upon check out. Wi-fi at the hotel is free and the connection is very spotty and unreliable. We saw the lobby filled with people using the wifi on their own devices. I would prefer for the hotel to charge for the wifi in order to have reliable service. When staying at a high end hotel, you shouldn't have to go to a coffee shop down the street just to have good wifi. The hotel has a fabulous spa with a cave-like feel on the basement level and a glamorous bar and restaurant on the lobby level. This building dates back to the 1890s and has an illustrious history. The New York Cafe captures with feel of the Gilded Age, with gorgeous fixtures and frescoes on the ceiling. The food here, for us, was hit or miss, but the staff was friendly and room was stunning. The Boscolo is not located in the center of the action. In fact, some of the streets near the hotel are a little suspicious. But the main part of Budapest is only a 20 minute walk away and we always enjoyed getting our steps in. This was our first time at an Autograph Collection property, as we mainly stay at Starwood's Luxury Collection (which are the same type of properties as Autograph). We really enjoyed our stay here - this hotel was our home-away-from-home. There is a special feel to the hotel that can't adequately be put into words. We had a couple of missteps during our stay, but wouldn't hesitate to return again.
"The Boscolo is in a great location"
The Boscolo Hotel WOW - This hotel is STUNNING! I just wanted to take a picture of everything as soon as we got inside. I have never seen anything like it on my travels, the entrance is a work of art, its contemporary design mixes with the historical architecture and creates such a mesmerizing first impression… The Boscolo is also home to the New York Cafe - 'The most beautiful cafe in the world' ….We were super lucky, as we were staying in the Boscolo on a B&B basis, we had our breakfast included at the New York Cafe every day. Everyone starts there day with Champagne right….'! The Boscolo is in a great location, it is around a 12 minute walk away from St. Stephens Basilica, or you can take the bus! There is a bus stop directly outside the Boscolo, making it a great option for easy transport link!
This is a fairy tale hotel. I was so looking forward to staying here based upon the photos on the website. It was grand and stunning. The ornate high ceilings were beautiful. The service was great and our hotel was room large with a beautiful entry and marvelous bathroom. I particularly liked the fact that hair conditioner was provided. The New York Cafe was everything as described, ornate and elegant.
"Breathtaking home away from home"
An exquisite example of luxury and service that I can't make myself call a hotel. From the curb to our suite we were pampered by some of the friendliest and professional staff I have ever met. The building intself is breathtaking inside and out. We find the service and quality in the restaurant to be exceptional at a minimum. We have also visited Boscolo locations in Rome and Prague. This property raises the bar for sheer beauty. Thank you so much for a very memorable experience.
