There are many fine hotels in Budapest with event space, but don’t make any bookings until you have checked out the Continental Hotel Budapest. A modern, cool, four-star hotel with 272 rooms in the heart of the city, the venue offers an exciting and opulent combination of modern chic and Art Deco architecture. The events facilities at the hotel are simply superb.

With five rooms to choose from – all equipped with modern sound technology – guests and delegates will be able to meet and work in comfortable, attractive surroundings backed up with excellent communication facilities.
Among these rooms is the Hungaria, which can operate as a lecture theatre for up to 160 people, work as a boardroom for 56 people or as a banqueting room for 40. Smaller rooms include the Buda+Pest with a 100-person lecture theatre capacity and the Buda, which has room for 40 as a lecture theatre. In addition to the choice of rooms for functions, conferences and special dinners, there is also the Panorama Roof Garden, ideal for cocktail parties and other social gatherings with its panoramic views across the city centre.
The central location of the hotel means more than just good views. It ensures that for business travellers the hotel is perfectly situated for visiting nearby offices, as well as being handy for those who travel from adjacent places of work to the hotel. Ease of travel includes the proximity to Blaha Lujza Ter on Line 2 of the Budapest Metro, the world’s second oldest underground train system.
