We spent 2 nights at this hotel recently and can only agree with all the previous positive comments. We had been upgraded to a room which even though it was on the ground floor proved to be spacious and very quiet. The breakfast was plentiful and the cocktail bar was a very enjoyable place to have a couple of drinks at the end of the day. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they happily organised transfers to the train station for us. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Budapest.

Stayed 4 nights in a spacious double room on 5th floor. Good sized bathroom with bidet and large walk in shower. Beds very firm. Lovely and quiet. Great selection of hot and cold buffet breakfast, breads, fruit and yoghurt. Pretty much anything you could think off. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Dining room very smart just like the rest of the hotel which is beautifully presented throughout. Reception staff also polite, friendly and helpful. Complimentary coffee/tea and water with a few nibbles is a nice touch in the lounge bar beside reception and available from 12-5pm. The location of the hotel is perfection for seeing Budapest. Its only 10 mins from Vaci street, but feels more suburban in a quiet street with some lovely little bars, tree lined avenues and green areas. Our stay at this hotel definately added to our overall wonderful break in what eventually turned out to be a hot, sunny Budapest.

Room Tip: We had 5th floor room looking on to a courtyard at the rear of the hotel. Very quiet.

We have visited this hotel several times in past two years and it is always wonderful experience. I love it from the first time I stepped inside. It is unique combination of the old palace and modern minimalistic interior. I like impressive wall behind the reception desk and the restaurant beneath it.
The staff is very kind and helpful. Rooms are clean and very quiet with very nice bathroom and wi-fi in the room. There is free coffee and tea in the lobby until 5 pm. The breakfast is very good, great selection of different kinds of food and freshly squeezed juice. Location is also great, in the quiet neighborhood just 10 minutes walk from the center with shops and restaurants. As returning guests we were upgraded to a bigger room last time and they have never dissapointed us so far. It so good, I would never stay in a different hotel in Budapest

We reiterate the positive comments made by other recent reviewers of this lovely hotel. It is furnished and decorated to the highest standards, with some original features preserved while the majority of the hotel is modern. The hotel has a "boutique" feel. Our room was quiet, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom excellently equipped and both very clean. Reception, cleaning and dining room staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was generous, with a wide choice of food. The free coffee, tea and water in the bar all day until 5.00pm was a welcome bonus. An The exceptional hospitality of this hotel is illustrated in it providing a packed breakfast to some guests who were having to leave for the airport at 4.00am.We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Budapest.

All staff at this hotel were friendly and welcoming, The room was well appointed and clean, my wife thought the mattress too firm but I liked it.
It was in an area with narrow streets but within 5 minutes walk to a tram stop.
The breakfast was good quality and frequently replenished.
If returning to Budapest we would return to this hotel

We were amazed when we entered the hotel. They have managed to keep the old character of the palace whilst modernizing the interior. Our room was very modern with all of the amenities required and more. Very clean. The lobby and dining area were also modern and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Centrally located on the Pest side within walking distance to all of the major attractions. Strongly recommend this hotel.
