InterContinental Budapest is located right on the banks of the Danube, a short walk from the iconic Chain Bridge. Most of Budapest’s gay nightlife can be easily reached on foot, including favorite spots like VIBE (popular with a young gay crowd), Oops @ Anker’t (busy Friday night dance party) and Habrolo (friendly and low-key gay cafe bar).
The gay-friendly hotel itself is a classic example of a luxury chain hotel, with impeccably efficient and well-trained staff and tasteful, elegant decor. It was selected as Hungary’s leading business hotel by the World Travel Awards 2018, but it has something to offer for all types of travelers.
The rooms come in various categories, all of which have large windows and good amenities. The Classic and Superior rooms are on the smaller side, although the latter category does come with stunning views of Buda Castle across the Danube river. For more room and even better views, go for a Deluxe room or one of the beautiful modern suites.
The hotel bar has a lovely terrace overlooking the river and serves fun, inventive cocktails. The attached restaurant focuses on local, seasonal ingredients for a modern take on Hungarian cuisine. Intercontinental Budapest also features a state-of-the-art spa with an indoor heated swimming pool. The gym is small but excellent, with a solid selection of both cardio and weights equipment. It is open 24 hours for hotel guests. The InterContinental is one of the most booked luxury gay hotels in Budapest.
