I'll start on a low and end on a high.
La Prima is marketed as a 4 star hotel, but I would say it is more fitting of a 3 star. I've stayed in many 4 star hotels of a much better standard.
I asked at reception if it would be possible to turn on the air conditioning as, at times, our room was stifilingly hot - even though we were there mid october. However I was told this would not be possible as it was too noisy and and would affect other guests. Not really what you want to hear.
The reception staff were a bit hit or miss - playing on their phones a lot, and making you aware you were interupting their time on facebook or whatever *deep, huffy breaths*. The overnight receptionist was nice enough though.
I felt the hotel was slightly over styled - turquoise and cream Fleur De Lis everywhere (carpets, walls, glass, furniture...) a bit over bearing in all honesty, but not completely offensive.
A bit style over substance I think.
Breakfast consist of a selection of breads, meats, cheese, yoghurts and cereals interspersed with some local delicacies - Hungarian Goulash, spicy sausage... Was good to try different things, however the choice remains the same each day.
The hotel is in a fantatic location, halfway along Vaci Utca and a 2 minute walk away from the Danube. It is in a great location to explore the city and easy to navigate to and from. My wife and I walked everywhere from this great base.
There are a fantastic array of restaurants just a stones throw from the front doors, and a number of great bars and boutique shops too.
