The hotel is in a great location, the staff are pleasant and efficient, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the food was good and the bar well stocked.
Other than breakfast (which is very good, and served in a separate room) bar meals are served in a glorified corridor next to the bar which is too hot and very smokey. I would recommend banning smoking and creating a more comfortable dining area to attract more guests to dine in the hotel. The food is lovely.
Overall I would definitely use the hotel again and recommend it to others.
This is a really nice hotel with really nice rooms, friendly staff and an amazing breakfast buffet. The location is excellent too: metro stop is nearby and there are some nice cafes and restaurant in the area. It's a 15 minute walk to the Danube and the castle etc. You can get nearly everywhere on foot. There's no real con that we can think of or that is worth mentioning. Budapest is an amazing city and is most definitely suitable for a city trip.
The hotel has a modern appearance and the staff were very polite, welcoming and helpful. Our bedroom and bathroom were of a high standard. There is a pleasant breakfast room, but this was not used for other meals, which are served in what is the hotel bar. Although this is also comfortable, it is a little odd to have guests on their way to and from their rooms walking through as you having a meal. However, this a minor matter and there are plenty of restaurants in the city.
The hotel is very conveniently sited, very close to the Opera House and the underground system and next door to the Belcanto restaurant, which was giving a 50% sdiscount at lunchtime!
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.
