Compliance Summary

The InterContinental is positioned as an unrated business hotel and is located on the Danube river, opposite Buda Castle within walking distance of the city centre and some 30 minutes taxi ride from Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc airport.

 

The architecture of the hotel is modern as one can expect of a hotel built in 1981,  with an interior that is contemporary, executive level, and comfortable. The Corso bar is located on the lobby level with views of the river and Buda castle and offers snacks during the day and operates as a piano bar during the evening. Next to the Corso bar is the Corso restaurant with 250 seats for buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For groups, which might use the restaurant for lunch or dinner the space can be reserved privately with a choice of buffet or set course menus. Semi-private spaces can also be reserved when it is preferred to move from the meeting space level. Like the bar area, the restaurant looks onto the river. Both spaces are decorated modestly in a contemporary style and are not recognised as upscale or Michelin level

 

There are in total 14 meeting rooms on level 1 including the ballroom, which with the use of movable walls can turn three separate rooms into one with a capacity of 850 person’s theatre style. Natural daylight is possible however, cleverly removable walls can block this to create a blacked-out space. Directly opposite the Ballroom are the 5 Panorama rooms with river views and capacities of approximately 40 person’s theatre style each, perfect also for U shape and boardroom style for advisory board meetings. Between both rooms refreshments can be served and lunch if required in pre-function area 1. At the entrance to this meeting space is pre-function area III which can be used for exhibits and adjacent to that 4 further meeting rooms. Access can be made directly, via the staircase, to the street for group arrivals and day meetings would only need to touch the meeting space not any of the public areas of the hotel. Registration can be taken on this arrivals floor and lifts or the staircase used to directly access the meeting areas.

 

There are 402 bedrooms at the InterContinental hotel, 190 classic or entry-level rooms (23m²) with city views, 129 superior rooms (23m²) which are the same size as the classic rooms but with river views, 57 deluxe rooms (27m²) which are slightly larger than the classic and superior rooms but of the same design and include the same amenities.

 

The club lounge and Spa are located on the meetings floor, discreetly in each corner and the lifts here have direct access to all bedrooms, the reception level, and of course the meetings floor. The Spa at the InterContinental provides mostly hotel guests with facilities that reflect the name, a small indoor pool, fitness room, sauna, steam room, and treatment rooms. There is a modest external membership and the spa is not themed or decorated to reflect a concept space. The Spa can be seen from the meeting floor in a discrete corridor and is not visible from the public areas of the hotel.

There is a door service at InterContinental and a visibly higher staff-to-guest ratio compared to 4-star business hotels, which does reflect some of the positioning of the hotel in the marketplace. 

Compliance Hotspot

The hotel's website uses images of the city as a reminder of its location and alignment with the leisure market, which also uses the hotel. Some of that broad positioning and language, appropriate for the leisure market, can be seen in the website format but should not distract from the venue as a flexible, business-centric meeting location.

This venue has a reputation for being more upscale in terms of architecture and decor. However, we believe that, while the decor is slightly above that of an executive level, it is still within the parameters that are usually acceptable for meetings. This venue may not be star rated but may have previously been 5-star. Like the majority of the hotel industry, it does not use or promote an industry star rating and employs perceptions ratings e.g. Google, to provide a perspective of high service levels. We believe that the venue is executive-level, with decor and branding consistent with an upscale business offering. This venue has leisure facilities aimed toward individual guests and may include chargeable spa treatments
