Its a standard 4 star hotel. All facilities in room are good. Though restaurant works only for breakfast. Its location has a lot of coffe shops etc around. SPAR just opposite for small needs. Very good and friendly staff. Regards to Mr. Gaboy and his collegues who helped me a lot!

Unfortunately, there is a lot of noise that filters in from the street. My air conditioning was not working so I needed to keep the window open for fresh air. I didn't... More

Returning to the Ambra after an absence of two years – mainly due to the fact that the Hotel Parlament is no longer part of the Best Western chain – I was surprised how little had changed.

The hotel was average in cleanliness. It wasn't gross, but things felt very dated and well used. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location wasn't the best, and they didn't have parking available for our sedan sized car. They said it was too big, and we had to park on the street which was expensive. Overall, it wasn't...

Yes, the neighborhood seems sketchy, but in reality, that's Budapest. The people hanging around are not "gangs", just smokers to which Budapest has a monopoly on them.The hotel is ideally situated with many great restaurants nea by and one which the hotel recommended has a FREE pick up and drop off. The place is spotless, the breakfast overwhelming, and the... More
