The Boscolo Budapest Hotel, like the Boscolo Prague, is part of the Autograph Collection, in the Marriott portfolio of properties. The hotel is fairly easy to get to via train and is located next to a convenience store, and many restaurants.
Upon entering the hotel, the front desk is on the right. Check-in was thorough, and I was advised that I could take breakfast in the New York Café as a Ritz Carlton Gold member.
The lobby is large and spacious, made to feel more so with the high ceilings and glass roof.
The hallways are fairly narrow, and feature marble flooring.
I was assigned to room 454, which is a rather large room. There is ample room to store your things and walk around.
Upon entering, the bathroom is to the right. There is a single sink with ample counter space. Like the Boscolo Prague, Etro products are featured.
There is a drawer built into the bathroom counter which held extra towels. I thought it was a good use of otherwise dead space, and wish more hotels would utilize this space similarly.
The shower/tub combo is exposed, as it is right behind the sink. There is no door between the entrance of the bathroom area and the shower/tub. There is a rainfall shower head, as well as a hand held shower head. Once again, a partial door was featured. With the shower/tub being so exposed staying warm in the shower was a bit of a challenge.
There is a frosted plate of glass separating the shower/tub from the main area of the room.
The toilet and bidet are separated from the rest of the bathroom.
Across from the bathroom is the closet, which is spacious.
The bed was very comfortable, with large areas on either side of the bed making the room feel bigger than it was.
A complimentary bottle of water was placed on one of the nightstands.
There is a sitting area with two chairs and a small table.
The desk is located close to the closet with a luggage rack in between. The desk was not very big, especially with the TV sitting on part of the desk. The Wi-Fi here was also abysmal. Outlets were not conveniently located within the room, but at least there were outlets by the desk.
There was a mini bar located in the cabinet underneath the TV, along with some snacks on the desk.
Breakfast was in the infamous New York Café, which was located on two levels. It appeared that non-hotel guests were served on the lobby level, while hotel guests were seated on the lower level.
The breakfast buffet was fairly extensive, but was served in a very small area located very close to tables so trying to maneuver in such a small area proved to be a challenge. Food was replaced quickly, and dishes were also removed promptly. Service was quite good throughout given the number of people dining at breakfast.
The overall service at the hotel was excellent as well. Surprisingly, rates were lower than at the Marriott Budapest. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the Marriott Budapest overlooks the Danube River. I would have no qualms in staying at this property again.
