This hotel is wonderful. I've been writing this review for nearly half an hour now and nothing I've come up with has done full justice to this hotel. The staff are attentive and smiley but not OTT, the room clean, smart and contemporary and the breakfast is definitely not good for the waistline!
I've seen previous comments about the rooms being small which is true however it was perfectly adequate for 2 tall people for a 4 night break. The bed was comfortable, there was plenty of cupboard space and as I've said before the room was spotlessly clean.
I was a little concerned that breakfast time might be a bit of a free-for-all (having read previous reviews). This was not the case. Breakfast was relaxed and plentiful even on the Saturday and Sunday mornings. One criticism here - fried eggs should be hot!
The upstairs bar is a good place to people watch from and makes a change from sitting in a characterless hotel lobby.
The staff all spoke good English and were very helpful. There was a nice relaxed feel to the whole hotel.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Budapest and the hotel was a huge factor in that.
