Hotel: the hotel interior appears to be very new, modern designed and well finished. It has a contemporary, minimalist style including a large open-space 24hr reception; bar / coffee area where you can get free bottled water, a selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate; small fitness area only 3 machines and sauna which we didn't use but looked nice; and a large breakfast room. Free wifi across the hotel at a really good speed we were very impressed.
Bedroom: the bedroom was really clean and had everything you require from a good hotel room. The bed was comfy and staff will bring you extra pillows if you want them. There is plenty of storage space for all your clothes. The tv was quite small but who cares about tv on holiday! The bathroom was really nice and had a huge shower, complimentary shower gel, soap, shoe sponge, shower cap. Hair dryer was good unlike most hotel ones and conveniently placed on the wall by sink / mirror. There was also a large mirror on the door. My only slight moan was that the towels and loo roll were quite hard.
Staff: the staff were really helpful and friendly. They spoke good english and were happy to offer advice on tours, taxis, nightclubs etc.
Location: only downside of this hotel is that you are not bang in the centre of town or by the river. However once you go for a walk you realise it is not that far away from most attractions. It is close to some good ruin bars, i'd recommend szimpla kert.
Taxis are cheap in Budapest if you get the hotel or restaurant / bar to order them for you. If you hail them off the street they will overcharge triple fares or worse so learn from our mistake.
Budapest is quite easy to walk around and locate yourself if you use a map, we usually do bus tours or get the metro but didn't bother here. Instead we walked or got a taxi.
We really enjoyed Budapest it is a nice city for a weekend trip. I've been to a few European capitals and it was one of the best.
