It was not easy to find the hotel, as it is actually a part of a bigger building. This, however, was the only problem I had. Although it is quite a small place and probably a 'no frills' type, the rooms are on the spacious side. They are clean and have all the necessities; definitely everything they advertised in their...

The members of staff were friendly, welcoming and always available and very helpful. The location is perfect. Both room conditions (cleanliness, equipment, comfort, etc.) and the services I received equal a good quality hotel room. The place, then, has got its charm precisely because it doesn't look like a conventional hotel and therefore allows you to get the flavour of... More

My wife and I recently stayed here and while it was not easy to find we were surprised by the friendly staff, great location, the cleanliness and to top it off a complimentary bottle of wine. We could not believe we got all of this for an amazing price. If we return to Budapest we would certainly return to this... More

The name says it all...the hotel is based in a central location of Budapest and provides a good base for tourists to explore the many attractions of this beautiful city. The staff and hotel services were good.

The hotel is situated in the center of it all. Short walk to the sights by the river and right adjacent to the great bars and restaurants of the old Jewish ghetto. The rooms are all good sized. The furnishing were basic but functional. The staff were all very good and helpful. Very small hotel but the lobby was staffed... More

Excellent location in city centre, very close to metro station. The hotel is not easy to find because it is situated in one floor in a building. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast is in a nice café around the corner.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel rooms are very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast next door was also good. The location is very central and having read the other reviews below, we found it easily by keeping an eye out for the gate. Would definitely recommend!

Friendly staff, helpful. Perfect location, near tram and Metro Line. A bit hard to find, but once you do, a hidden gem. Basic room, but everything you need. Clean, comfortable. Safe, secure location. Near all restaurants, nightlife. I would stay here again and I have!
