We stayed in one of the deluxe apartments (room 201). Very spacious, modern and clean with two separate bedrooms both with flat screens, as you walk into the room the bathroom is on the right and there is a kitchen area with full size fridge, microwave, cupboards, sink and two cooking hobs. We didn't cook but we did use the kettle for a drinks and the mini bar in the fridge. The beds are on the firm side and we had to ask for more pillows - they only provided one pillow per person. Also two single quilts on the double bed. Although all bedding was very clean, the quality of the pillows and quilts could have been better. Also another small complaint no mirrors in the bedrooms, one full length mirror on the wall opposite the bathroom and one mirror in bathroom, and the bathroom although modern and clean was quite compact and the only hairdryer was in the bathroom! Which mean the bathroom area was quite busy!! A few more mirrors, a hairdryer in the bedroom and I would have given this hotel 5 stars!
The room was very warm, which was good as we were there in November. We were at the front of the hotel and were not bothered by any noise from the street outside, but of course we didn't have the windows open that much so maybe in the summer this could be a problem.
Breakfast was fine for a small hotel. The breakfast rooms are a little on the small size. They provide a small buffet with additional items cooked to order - ham and eggs were excellent!
We used the hot tub and sauna, if you ask at reception they will provide you with bathrobes which were good to use when going to the hot tub, although there is a shower and changing rooms there.
The best thing about this hotel is the location. There is a restaurant opposite the hotel, Chagall Cafe, which is very good. Another excellent restaurant is Klassz, which is only a five minute walk away, head towards the Opera House, turn left at the Louis Vuitton shop onto Andrassy Avenue and Klassz is on the other side of the road about a two - three minute walk. Also if you carry on walking past Klassz you will come to a pedestrianised street which has a lot of great restaurants and bars. Another restaurant we tried was La Pampa Steakhouse, again very good, and only a five minute walk away, head towards St Stephen's Basilica, the restaurant in on the corner of the main street which St Stephen's is located on (sorry can't remember the name). All the main attractions of Budapest was within walking distant - it takes around 15 minutes to walk to the Danube, where you can get a reasonably priced boat trip or have a drink and a bite to eat on one of the many floating restaurants along the Danube. There is a main shopping area behind the Marriott Hotel, which is on the pest side of the Danube near the Chain Bridge. We also visited the Buda side, with the castle and palace. Well worth a visit is the Szechenyi Baths, the hotel reception were very helpful, ringing ahead to make sure the Baths were open, getting our tickets so we didn't have to wait in a queue, and calling a taxi (1,500 hf each way). In fact, the hotel reception provided a lot of information when we checked in, plus a never ending supply of maps (which we kept losing!). Also very nice to come back to a cup of hot mulled wine at the end of the day!
