This hotel is very well placed for exploring Budapest. The hotel is very well furnished and is beautiful inside and out. I travelled with my teenaged daughter and we had a room each on B&B basis. The rooms were fabulous: plenty large enough, well furnished, lovely bathrooms with loads of towels and toiletries, a good working shower, all clean and... More

The Room Our room was a Standard Twin and it was quite small but stylish with really comfy beds and duvets to die for. The bathroom had a tub which was great, a really powerful shower and the room overall was really clean and equipped with a minibar - no tea or coffee making facilities though, but I think you...

This hotel is just outside the centre but very close to places to visit such as the Opera House and within 15 minutes walk of the river, so a great base from which to explore the city. It is very modern in its decor and is very elegant. The room was a little on the small side but plenty of... More

Dear Guest, it is very complimenting to hear that our hotel was the best you have ever stayed. The level of our Bar reflects the quality of the entire hotel, so we cannot and not want to compete with the neighbouring ruin pubs since all of us are different and this is good so, I think. Thanks a million to... More

Nice hotel just outside the center. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, the air conditioning did not work properly in the room. Outside the hotel lobby the air was rather warm and stuffy. The breakfast could be improved.

We stayed in this hotel around 2 weeks ago and it was fantastic. The staff were so polite and helpful! There are lots of facilities such as the spa and rooftop pool. I really can't wait to go back! It's a gorgeous hotel in a quiet but central location. Perfect!!
