I had a really good stay at this hotel. Because I arrived into Budapest from Rome at around 10.45pm, I had arranged for the hotel to send a car to pick me up at the airport. This cost €30 and I didn't mind paying that at that time of the night, instead of getting public transport into a city that I didn't know. If you arrive into the airport earlier in the day, it's very easy to get to the hotel by public transport. You can get a bus from outside the terminal (I can't remember which one, I think it was something like the 20E) which will take you to the Kőbánya-Kispest station, where you can get the metro to Deák Ferenc tér and then change to the red line and go to Blaha Lujza tér or Keleti pályaudvar. The hotel is located between these two stations (probably slightly closer to Keleti pályaudvar, but if you were to get off at Blaha Lujza tér and start walking up Rákóczi tér to the hotel, the time it would take for the train to go to the next stop would mean that it would take just as long to get to the hotel). It's really cheap to travel this way to the hotel, far cheaper than €30 for a taxi or pickup (which is well worth doing late at night). It takes about 1 hour this way. There is a train that goes directly to the airport, but this isn't running at the moment, while Terminal 1 is being rebuilt.
The hotel itself is very comfortable and the staff very helpful and pleasant. I stayed in a double room and was really nice. It had a good sized bathroom and everything was always clean after I came back to my room at the end of the day after the cleaning staff had been there. The breakfasts were very good.
The location of the hotel was about a 20 minute walk from the city centre and the river. I had no problem walking this distance, but some people may find it a little bit far. The fact that it is a little further away is probably reflected in the cost. Though it is not in a particularly attractive area, it is very safe. It's located just off Rákóczi tér, which is one of the main roads through Budapest, so there is always traffic around, which makes you feel safer when if you are walking back to the hotel late at night. The area that the hotel is in, is located right next to the student area in the Jewish quarter, so you have lots of people around, again making you feel more safe.
Overall, this is a good place to stay. I would have no problem recommending it to others. I would stay there again, but would also look at staying a little closer to the centre is possible, when I return to Budapest, which I hope will be soon as it's a great city!
