The hotel is a bit tired and worn (as expected after reading other Trip Advisor reviews), however if you can overlook these small deficiencies this is a great option. Our room was small and the carpet was a bit worn, but the room was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. Breakfast room was charming with a very good... More

This is like stepping into the set of an Hercule Poirot film.Beautifully restored it appeals to al;l the senses.We couldn't fault the food or the service.The waiters/waitresses were quietly helpful,always watchful and tables were cleared quickly and without fuss.The location was ideal.We all agreed we would stay there again.

This was not the cheapest hotel but we like it as it is restored beautifully as it was in the 1930s and before. Although tour groups use this hotel we considered we had avoided the large box-like chain hotels along the Danube and found the atmosphere of old Austria-Hungary. It is at Astoria metro with trams and buses at the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel from the pleasant rooms, large bathrooms, excellent staff and wonderful breakfasts. Excellent location for walking to shopping. The only drawback is being located on a major intersection and having a corner room that faced the streets we heard alot of sirens until about midnight.

Stayed here for 4 nights with an elderly family member. Booked the hotel through a travel website along with flights. The hotel is one of the oldest in Budapest on the Pest side. Apparently it was used as a base by German forces during WW2! It is of an old style with big chandalers, mirrors and gold. Arriving at night... More

This hotel is true old European style. You feel like you have stepped back in the 30s, and smells like it too. One of the hardest things in Eatern Europe is the social acceptance of smoking. For us used to a smoke free life it is very difficult. The room was a bit of a walk, but it was okay.... More

We stayed there for a longer weekend (5 nights) in August. The hotel is perfectly located and we could easily visit the city walking or taking a bike from there (rental on the corner, next to the hotel). However, rooms are decorated and restorated in a bit kitschy way. There are just little rooms which are not noisy. Most of... More

Stayed for 1 week in early August. Old world style style hotel with large rooms and delightful dining/breakfast area. Central location makes it ideal for discovering the city. Attentive staff and offers excellent value. Large choice at breakfast. Fruit juice could be better though. Will be back.
