About Continental Hotel Budapest, Budapest

Historic hotel in central Budapest with a rooftop pool

Near metro and tram

Housed in the former Hungaria Bath, an Art Nouveau building from the early 20th century, Continental Hotel Budapest puts you 2.5 blocks from Blaha Lujza tér Metro and a short stroll from tram, trolley and bus lines. Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport is a half-hour away.

History and scenery

You can stroll 4 blocks to experience the history of Budapest's Jewish community at the largest synagogue in Europe, the Great Synagogue. Panoramic views of the Danube, Chain Bridge, and city are on display from Buda Castle, 3 km west.

Pools both inside and out

A nice day is a good time for a swim in the seasonal outdoor pool, set in a rooftop garden. You can retreat inside for a swim in the indoor pool, an invigorating stint in the hot tub and 2 saunas, or a meal of Hungarian and French cuisine in the restaurant.

Plush beds, free WiFi

The 272 contemporary and upscale guestrooms have a warm color palette and art deco accents, and come with coffeemakers, minibars and in-room safes. You can lie back on the plush bed and watch a movie on the flat-screen TV, or surf the internet with the free WiFi.

    Very good!
    The hotel is very beautiful and clean. The location is okay, it’s close to everything. I enjoyed my stay in Budapest. A nice place to visit.

    Fantastic Urban Oasis
    Top-notch staff and service. Great property and facilities (spa!). Location is great for exploring Pest. And don't skip the breakfast. I stay at this property almost every time I arrive in Hungary to recuperate from the stress of transatlantic travel before heading out of Budapest to visit family. It's the perfect oasis.
