We are planning a trip in June. Is parking available? How many days should we plan to stay in Budapest to get a good flavor? We are also planning to visit Prague and Cluj-Napoca. Thanks.
Thank you very much for your kind interest taken to our Hotel Palazzo Zichy and for contacting us with your inquiry.
As far as your question is concerned about the parking possibilities in our hotel, let me kindly inform you that although we do not have an own parking lot there is a safe and 24 hours monitored underground garage called the Pollack Garage in the neighborhood.
It is conveniently located just a couple of minutes’ drive from the hotel, and 5-6 minutes’ walk back from the garage to the hotel.
Apart from this, there is also a possibility to park your car on the street. On the street there is a pay per hour system, although the parking is free of charge every day from 8p.m. till 8a.m. The parking is also free of charge from Friday 8p.m. till Monday morning 8a.m.
Answering your second question, I would suggest you to spend at least four full days in our capital to have enough time to visit our must-see attractions and some museums or one of the world famous bath houses.
I hope I could help you and in case you may need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us at anytime at info @ hpz . hu.
I truly hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you at our Hotel Palazzo Zichy in June.

We stayed for 4 nights which gave 3 and half days. This seemed about right but it does depend on how many of the specialist museums you intent visiting. We missed out on the Museum of Fine Arts since it's closed for renovation until Oct 2018.
Also having 4 nights meant that we could get a good mix of evening food from bar food to good Hungarian cooking. For the latter I'd recommend Ruben restaurant which is 10 mins walk from Palazzo Zichy. If it's your thing, the wines and craft beers are also very good. For wines try the local grapes rather than international varieties, for craft beer you can find quite a lot of specialist bars. I found an on-line article by The Guardien (search "craft beer budapest Guardian") helpful
We went in October and thoroughly enjoyed it, we had three full days there and it was about right. As for parking I don’t know to be honest, we used public transport and Shanks’ pony. Hope you have a great time.
We live nearby and there is an underground parking garage on the street behind the National Muzeum and also one on the corner of Baross Ter and Ulloi utca. But the other responders are correct in saying if you can avoid using a car you will have no trouble getting around in Budapest. The #3 and #4 METRO's are close by at Kalvin Ter (a 5 min walk from the hotel) and at the same place there are buses, trolleys and trams. Very EZ and very cheap. Taxis are good, but only available from TAXI stands or calling from restaurants and from the hotel.... 3 - 4 days is a good amount of time to spend to see the wonderful city!. Don't forget to go to see the Hospital in the Rock in Buda. I also recommend taking any of the "Free" walking tours .. they are terrific and you only pay what you wish to "tip" . Go to the free walking tours website for where they meet and times of the tours. They begin at Vorosmarty Ter at the end of the M1 line.
We stayed for five days and that was plenty. I didn’t drive so I don’t know about car parking. But I don’t see a car park in the hotel. And their sub floors are the restaurant and fitness area.
I'm not aware of parking. The Hotel is off a side street. We used reasonably priced taxi and were near the main transport links. We stayed 4 days and were glad to see what we wanted to see. Definitely go to thermal baths. Enjoy
3 days should be enough. No idea about the parking, but most streets around the hotel are one way system and very narrow, with cars parked on both sides - I was so glad I didn't have to drive but used taxis and public transport instead. You can get the travel cards in the machine opposite McDonald's (a bit up the road, by the bus stop).
Taxis are also cheap. When you leave the hotel and walk straight ahead, you'll reach the Parliament after about 40 minutes or so - I did that and I really enjoyed the walk.
