We stayed at the Promenade City for three nights during our visit to Budapest to see the F1 Grand Prix.
The hotel is in an excellent location, right in the centre on the "Pest" side of the Danube, close to the many shops, bars and restaurants. On the whole we had a very positive experience and would probably stay here again, but I must point out the following:
1. As the previous reviewer has pointed out, none of the rooms have natural daylight because all the windows are internal.
2. The electricity only comes on when your key-card is in the slot, so the drinks I put in the fridge to keep cool were not actually chilled because when we were out of the room the fridge was off!
3. There was a power-cut the first morning, although this was rectified fairly quickly.
4. The sink in the bathroom only allowed the water to drain away v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y.
5. There was no shower curtain, so water ended up everywhere.
On the plus side though...
1. Nice clean hotel, large room, comfortable bed
2. Friendly and helpful staff
3. Good selection of breakfast goodies
4. Superb city centre location, walking distance from most local attractions.
So mostly a positive stay, in a beautiful city. I would certainly recommend the Promenade.
