I stayed here three nights in August 2012. It is located around the corner from Astoria, a major shopping and restaurant area in Budapest. It's in an old building but this belies the interior -- it's newly decorated and modern. I had a single room with shower and toilet. It was small but I only slept there. It overlooks a busy street but the window is double-glazed and no traffic or restaurant noise came through. Like all similar European establishments it's not airconditioned (it is heated) but a fan is supplied. There's no guest laundry but there is a service laundry 15 minutes walk away (don't bother with the coin laundry at the other end of Dohany St -- it's always packed).
Free wifi was available, with a strong signal.
The only weak point was breakfast. You are given a chit for a nearby restaurant but all this qualifies you for is a bread roll with some kind of filling, e.g., salad and cheese, and coffee. Not enough to get the day off to a good start, for me anyway.
I can certainly recommend Danube Guest House on price, location, cleanliness and the great helpfulness of the owners, but the lack of a nice in-house breakfast takes the edge off.
