Hotel Zenit Budapest Palace is a renovated Neoclassical property, close to the River Danube in the centre of Pest. The hotel is well placed for sightseeing -- a 15-minute walk from the Hungarian State Opera House, and a 5-minute walk to three metro lines at Deák Ferenc tér, providing easy access to the House of Terror as well as the Széchenyi Thermal Baths, Museum of Fine Arts and Transport Museum in the City Park.
Just around the corner from the hotel lie Vorosmarty Square's pavement cafés and Váci Street, the city's main pedestrianised shopping area. From here, it's a 15-minute stroll to the Central Market Hall, a grand 3-storey building stacked to its rafters with stalls selling local wines, spices, salamis, fast food and embroidered crafts. The Royal Palace, over on the Buda side of the river, is a half-hour walk across Széchenyi Chain Bridge -- "arguably the most beautiful bridge over the Danube" (Lonely Planet).
The hotel's Hungarian restaurant offers live cooking demonstrations, and there's a tapas bar for specialty hams from Hungary, Spain and Italy, as well as sharing platters, panini sandwiches and bistro dishes. Guests also have use of the gym and sauna in the basement. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel, and guests can also hire a portable Wi-Fi device for an extra charge.
Rooms are modern, with minimalist furnishings, high ceilings and air conditioning, and complimentary toiletries include toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving foam and a razor. Standard bedrooms are a little tight on space; upgrade for more room. Those facing the inner courtyard are quieter than rooms overlooking the road.
