This is a nice small hotel near a lot of amenities in Budapest, next to the market and across the bridge from the baths.The rooms are clean and quiet. The breakfast is buffet style and have a good selection. The tour buses stop at the market and you can also buy tickets here.

The staff were very friendly, helpful and informative, nothing was too much trouble. We did not eat in the hotel but the... More

Unfortunately on our arrival we were checked in by the rudest man working on reception who obviously has a problem with female travellers. Unfortunately first impressions last and this encounter is what sticks most in my mind about this hotel. I would not return to this hotel

Staff is very friendly and helpfull and the (executive) rooms are nice. Public transport (metro and busses) is nearby. Lovely bathroom with shower and bath. The only minor is that not all windows can be covered by curtains.

We stayed for four nights when we were visiting our son and his partner who are living and working in Budapest. Great location as you can pretty well walk everywhere in the city from here. Nice rooms and very friendly staff. Recommended.

A renovated Hungarian Spa and baths retaining many of the original features. A gem hidden away near the Jewish Synagogue. Comfortable and very clean room and reasonable bathroom. Excellent to stay here as a tourist or for business. Close to Danube and St Stephens Basilica. I would definitely stay here again.

It was my second stay at the hotel while running a 2day seminar in the Hungary seminar room. We had lunch at the hotel restaurant. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I can warmly recommend that hotel for seminars. Everything is organized very well, if there is a problem, immediately someone will come and offer help. The lunch was... More
