Was very pleased with this hotel. Though it is not a luxury hotel, the accommodation was comfortable and clean, the breakfasts were very good and the food served in the Bistro restaurant far surpassed expectations. The service was generally excellent, apart from occasional minor but annoying glitches in the breakfast coffee service (they'd save themselves and the guests some aggravation if they just put a thermos of coffee on every table in the morning). The location is perfect for those visiting Budapest for its artistic treasures. The opera house is next door, the operetta, the Liszt centre and the theatre district are all within ten minutes walk and the main art galleries at Heroes Square are easily accessible by underground (five stops), as is Vaci ut (the main shopping street) and the Danube (three stops in the opposite direction). Of course, you miss out on the views of the Danube, but then life is about choices.
