I stayed here for 3 nights. The whole hotel is decorated in a dark red/black with warm low lighting, much similar to that of a spa or cinema.
Reception and check in was smooth with no problems.
Overall the hotel was also very clean.
Location - the hotel is situated in the upmarket area of town, which big shops near by such as pull and bear, mango, bershka etc. The metro is also right outside the hotel. It took us around 30 minutes from the airport via taxi, and should cost no more than 5000 HUF. (£15)
For restaurant recommendations - see my other reviews. The restaurant nearby is called Százéves Étterem I believe, it was amazing, with a live string quartet!
The entire hotel is very dark, the lighting does not change at night. It was quite hard at times to navigate around the room even with the brightest lights on. The rooms are very spacious, with lots of space for luggage and clothing etc. There is a mini bar with complimentary coffee. A complimentary cocktail is also provided on arrival as are bottled water and chocolates.
The bathroom is spacious, with robes, slippers and toiletries, however the bath has only a tiny glass screen and the shower leaks all over the floor, which is not only frustrating but annoying at a 5* hotel. There is also no spy hole in the bedroom door?? Although considering the darkness outside, I'm not sure how much you could see out of a spy hole anyway, haha.
Breakfast is nice, continental and eggs/pancakes included, Bacon/sausage etc is all extra. Soya milk was also available.
We ate one night in the Buddha resaurant (asian/thai cuisine) which was very nice. Good service, great food, nice atmosphere.
The main thing about this hotel, is that due to the decor and theme, it is quiet at mealtimes and in general, which is nice and calming.
We did have a problem on two nights...with noise from the bar on the sixth floor. We were on the 4th floor. Both nights there was very loud music, and thumping bass, which went on until 1am. We phoned reception who said that no one had ever complained before, they were very helpful and did try to turn the music down twice, I would maybe ask to be on the third floor as the restaurant and lounge is on the 1st floor, so at least on the 3rd you are in the middle!! Overall it was quiet though,
Spa - warm spa bath, plunge pool, steam room (broken), and two saunas, fitness room and massage also available. Very nice area. Just a couple of suggestions, the thermal pool smelt very strongly of chlorine? In a spa, this is quite off putting, it would be nice if ozone or natural waters had been used? Also the light changes colour in the spa bath almost every 2 seconds, which turns it from a relaxing bath into some kind of ibiza pool party!
Overall a nice hotel, no major complaints. A few tweaks, and it would be very nice. =)
Try the third floor,and ask to be put away from the lift/staircase.
