Dear Lesleyharrison, as I see from your review you like the human touch of our hotel more than the decor of it. Although the design of a hotel - especially nowadays - is very importnat, but by the end people (the staff) make the real difference. It was good to read that you noticed that the entire hotel is non-smoking,... More

We stayed from Wednesday 16 March - Saturday 19 March. This hotel was perfect from start to finish. Check in was a dream as was our stay. Yes the rooms are small but you are only sleeping in them. Breakfast was amazing and included in the price. We were able to book tours and get advice from anyone we asked.... More

It comes as absolutely no surprise to me that there are so many good reviews about this hotel. We stayed here for 4 nights and it was fantastic. It was part of a "stay 3 nights, get the 4th free" offer and also came with some discount vouchers, including free entry into the lovely Gellert baths...so really was excellent value.... More

Dear Chrissti, I read your review with great satisfaction. What the hotel is concerned I was happy, that you enjoyed it so much. I feel however very dissappointed for the overcharge in the tricky restaurant in the Downtown. Such incidents can demolish your positive experiences in our nice capitol, Budapest, but I hope after a while you will remember the... More

I stayed at this hotel for a business meeting and would highly recommend for like ventures. I ended up staying another day in Budapest to walk the city and found the location to be a bit removed from the "center" but absolutely no problem to navigate from.

We stayed here for two nights. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean and well proportioned.
