Only had the chance of a one night stay. On the Pest side or business side of the river it is conveniently located to the markets. Room was very nice, staff are friendly and courteous. The Avalon help desk is also in the foyer. Hassel free and convenient place to stay if are intending to do a river cruise.

Dear densmi, Thank you for placing your review. It is great that you draw attention to city markets where citizens love to go finding fresh fruit, vegetable, food products, all kinds of materials, souvenirs or even mingling in the crowd at flea markets depending on the style of market. I am really happy that you felt convenient in InterContinental Budapest...

We ended our Avalon River Cruise by staying in Budapest an extra night. As others have stated, this hotel is in a wonderful location. We checked in early and the king room we reserved was not ready for us so we took a room with two beds and no view, as we had spent a week on a Danube river...

Six of us stopped by for a drink before boarding our river boat cruise. The service was slow and the staff were rude. We did not leave a tip and the waitress brought back the bill saying we had given them a 1000 huffs note instead of a 10000 huffs note - we didn't! We reluctantly gave them another 10000...

We stayed here 2 nights at the beginning of an Avalon river cruise from Budapest to Bucharest. Very nice room facing the Danube. Lovely breakfast buffet and walking distance to Central Market in one direction and to the Parliament Bldg in the other. Nice staff. Nice restaurants nearby all along the Danube. Beautiful!

Really amazing views across the Danube to the Buda side with the castle and churches beautifully lit in the evenings. Fluffy pillows (I left mine in the suitcase as it was surplus to requirement) and heavenly mattress. Strong powerful shower as well.

Dispite the fact that Intercontinental hotel is a huge one, the quality of the service is good. The location is excellent. Restaurants are fine, the meal is o.k. Internet is working good. Breakfast is at a nice level. Some improvments can be done in the line of refurbishing. The hotel is a little bit old.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
