Recent guest reviews

The location was perfect, everything we wanted to do and see was easily within walking distance. Staff were friendly and helpful, sorted us out with the tourist bus tickets and pointed us in the right directions. Room was bright and spacious, bed was pretty comfortable, shower was lovely. A large Metro station was just down the road, which is handy as we got public transport from the airport to hotel.

This hotel is located in an old building that was likely grand at one time and then suffered during the communist era. The rooms are modern with high ceiling and up to date bathroom. The staff were helpful and friendly. From the reception one goes outside across an interior passageway to some wide stone stairs. These lead up to an elevator which takes the guest up to the hotel's rooms. It is an old elevator reminding of a bygone era. Once again outside, the guest walks along a balcony with an iron railing on one side looking over an interior courtyard. At the end of the balcony one enters the building again and follows the corridor to the room. The rooms look out on the interior courtyard. It was a pleasant stay and a unique hotel.

The room was very clean and comfortable and the hotel is located near lots of bars restaurants and attractions, it is also very close to a large metro station which we got to easily from the airport. Breakfast was nice and staff were helpful and friendly.

This hotel is excellent value. A very much needed redecoration within the last 6 months has transformed the place completely and put it up there with the best offering from " Premier Inns " in the UK. Everything is new, clean and " airy " and absolutely in a fantastic position to make visits to every Budapest site there is to see - without breaking the bank by staying in the soulless 5 Star hotels in the city centre. You can literally walk to all points, though the metro, trams and buses are all to hand. There are some great restaurants and shopping facilities nearby. Just 10 mins walk to the very centre of the city and the same to the Danube.

We booked a last minute city break to Budapest and wanted a hotel with a central location. Hotel city ring is approx 10 minutes from parliament and St Stephens basilica. To get to the centre of Margaret island is about a 20 minute walk. Our hotel room was very clean and comfortable with a decent sized modern bathroom. The room was spacious enough, but lacked hanging space for clothes, favouring a hangers on hooks rather than a wardrobe. There are plenty of draw spaces and shelves so it shouldn't be a problem. The internal courtyard our room looked out onto was a bit dowdy, however we were only in the room at night and out curtains were mainly closed. The air con was working but I found it to be ineffective, where as my companion felt comfortable. Personal differences I guess. The breakfast is served in the adjoining pub and consists of cereals eggs sausages cold meats yoghurt bread tea coffee and juices. Perfectly edible and enough to fill you up for your day of sightseeing. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Good location close to Danube, Metro & Tram Links and walking distance of most attractions. Staff helpful and all spoke English. Basic but adequate breakfast served in Lana Bistro attached to hotel which also serves reasonably priced meals in the evening. Air conditioning did struggle but it was 38C on one day! Rooms up 2 flights of stairs so would not recommend for those who would struggle with stairs

We stayed two days during the holidays. Air condition was work and room was spacious with moden furnitures. The only bad thing was a shower box. It hadn't any door.Shower box needs door! We had to have take a shower carefully,otherwise all of water of shower was on the bathoom floor. The staff was very kind and helpful. He reccomended places to visit. Hotel is center and close to the subway, so you can reach any place.

Stayed for 2 nights at end of November. Hotel is a beautiful old building that is in need of some TLC, it has some nice features but is terribly worn in parts. The location is decent for getting around Budapest whether on foot or public transport with both a tram stop right outside and the underground station approx 50 metres along the street. The staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean but very dated. Slight negative is we booked B&B and for breakfast we had to go out of the hotel and 'round the corner' to a restaurant! Not ideal but the breakfast was decent.

Came in Oct 2014 for the price we paid it was a really good hotel well within walking distance of the many attractions Budapest has to offer great shopping mall up the road definitely will return the rooms were a great size

4 nights in s very handy Budapest location Clean, newly refurbished room, good breakfast, helpful staff. Would definitely recommend it. Be warned if you have heavy luggage... There is no lift, the building is probably listed. No problem climbing the stairs if you are healthy.
