4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Location is great, you are close to the city centre, to all other important buildings in the city, as well as the parliament and close to connection for public transport. The parking is a bit harder, since they have only 6 available parking spots in front of hotel, however the parking garage is around the corner and it costs 15 eur per day. Staff of the hotel is very nice and helpfull, they will fell you welcomed there. Rooms are tidy and comfortable, breakfast buffet is very good. If you want to explore the city this hotel has perfect location and you get a real value for your money.

I spent christmas holidays there. Friently staff amd very clean hotel. Also the spa was really good and i really recommend it. Also in the roof there is an "ice ring" for skating. You can have a panoramic view of Budapest from there

The rooms are nice and big. The staff are kind and professional but they need to work out a different breakfast menu, because in this level that serviece is just not satisfying at all. I need to recommend the SPA area, because it is just nice and staff their is also excellent.

Arrived here , q to check in , no help with luggage. Went to my room, quite a hike., key didnt work so back down the lift and across to the other building receptionist started to sort then another staff member started to talk to her so stopped what she was doing , ignored me for 5 minutes them carried on sorting the key out , handed it to me and said it will work now. Took 30 minutes in total. Room was set on 25 degrees tried over 4 hours to reduce , rang reception they said need an engineer tomorrow , ok to wait to then , then said will send a fan , nothing appeared , waited 1 hour , no sleep , rubbish hotel with staff who lie and dont care , will never stay here again , please dont waste your money

The hotel is very nice. The rooms are very comfortable and breakfast is lovely. Use of the pool and spa is a real bonus too. The hotel is located in an excellent position for exploring the area. I would have given 5 star but there were a couple of things that need addressing. 1. Coffee but no milk in the room? 2. Coffee provided for day one only? Then you have to pay 1 euro a pod? Surely not? 3. The chap at the spa is very unfriendly. The girl is very sweet though. 4. The girl in the breakfast room with a huge problem! I think she hates her job and all the guests. She is rude rude rude. She banged my legs getting into a cupboard whilst I was getting fruit, I actually apologised and moved and then she opened a drawer onto me and walked away. She banged chairs and scraped tables whilst clearing up. All the guest were wondering what was going on. She was so sullen and mad. I thought she may be having a bad day but no, she was exactly the same on the other days. I'm sure the staff will know her. All other staff are lovely and the reception was very helpful on check in with information.

Very good hotel that is no more than a 10/15min walk to the city centre. No more than 5 min walk from St Stephens Basilica. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and very helpful and was happy to send an extra blanket up at 2am. They also have a good knowledge of the area. One flaw about the hotel would be the breakfast, it came included with the room but we found it warm at the best of times. Overall though we left Budapest very happy with our stay. Recommend to couples/groups looking to see the city.

We expected more from our stay. The only really good thing about this hotel is the location - 2 min walk to the nearest metro station. Standard rooms are really tiny and the daily cleaning is poor. In a double room they give 2 single covers, which we found funny. And in case you got a twin room instead of requested double they will just pull 2 beds together making a double bed...

Stayed here for a long weekend with friends. The hotel is in a good location and around a 30 minute drive from the airport. The hotel staff are very fondly, the drinks re good measure and very good value for money. I didn't eat here, but the menu looked very good and reasonable. Be warned that the hotel out the heating on and he rooms are very hot at night so it may be worth opening a window ajar if you can. The showers were good and powerful and the rooms were spacious and a good size. The roof top terrace was adult closed, but the hotel is in a good location for the Christmas markets.

Excellent hotel, big and clear room, bathroom also, nice staff, beautiful restaurant terrace on the roof of the hotel which overlooking the city, in the twilight, the most beautiful sight for the eye, best ever buffet breakfast, which is include in price, Hotel is in city center, most of the city's sights are in a couple of minutes of walking, superb spa and pool, nice gym, also include in price of accomodation, beautifull loby coffee bar, nearby is an underground garage at an affordable price for hotel guests, everything is 10/10.

A mid sized four star hotel, rooms stylish, bar area personable, breakfast a big win. The staff were extremely helpful throughout, an excellent choice at a reasonable cost, we would very likely return
