The staff are fantastic, the hotel is in a great location but the small details were missing. Upon arrival the room was not as described/booked and the hairdryer was broken. Preferences (which I understand can't always be fulfilled) appeared to be ignored as the hotel seemed quiet.

Very nice hotel, easy to get to by public transport from the airport. Location is key for this hotel, all the main sites of Budapest are accessable via the metro system, which is literally less than a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel itself is beatiful inside, the only down fall is if you wish to use the... More

Fabulous experience for our first trip to Budapest. Staff were charming, professional and informative. Great to stay somewhere which has been so carefully and sympathetically restored, our room decor was very modern and stylish. Breakfast was varied and delicious, with lots of local specialities, and included in the very reasonable tariff, we'd have paid more than double in the UK.

I stayed there for a complete week on an business trip. This hotel has been completely reconstructed and is an interesting blend of historic architecture and modern comfort. Nice hall, very nice restaurant. There is also a gym which is really useful, featuring quite a number of cardio and resistance machines, also free weights. Unfortunately the hotel is in a... More

I stayed here before Christmas with my girlfriend and family and we were all very impressed with the hotel. The foyer is really impressive with the large copper revolving door and the beautiful glass ceiling along with just the general structure of the building. You can definitely picture it as a spa back in the day before it was a... More

I used this hotel twice for my business trip. The hotel restaurant is very nice and offers good international and local cuisines. But the restaurant will be full and hectic with group guests during the peak time at breakfast, meaning the space is rather cramped. The chair in the hotel room is not comfortable and unsuitable for the desk. The... More

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
