Short break for two

The location is excellent. The breakfast was excellent. There is no coffee making facilities in the room. The drains stank. We were on the first floor with a river view and the traffic noise was sometimes extremely loud but bearable. All in all I would recommend this hotel for the money. The staff were very helpful and very pleasant. Even with the negative points I would stay again.

Unbeatable location with great views!

Excellent position with a tram stop in front of hotel! Rooms were a good size with views over Budapest but with only portable air conditioning units were a little dated. Bathing and spa facilities were excellent and free to hotel residents! Good food throughout hotel and service excellent.

Our trip to Budapest May, 2010

We walked to nearly everything--the hotel is right on the Danube River and there is a main bridge right in front of the hotel that crosses the river to the Buda side. The hote is massive--but easy to get around inside.
