The hotel is centrally located in the beautiful city of Budapest. The first thing that struck me was the warm welcome and professional competence of the staff. The next thing I noticed was the darkness of the unrelenting red and black, over-designed feel of the surroundings. The Buddha statues give a beautiful and calming effect in what is otherwise a stressful colour scheme. Maybe the oriental-themed palace's owners should have consulted a Feng Shui Master. Had they done so, they would have been aware that black, representing deep water, clashes with fire's red. There are easy ways to remedy this, which I would be happy to impart to the owners should they wish to contact me.
Once in the elegant room ( also red and black ) the bed was physically very comfortable. However, the fact that there was so many electronic features made it feel ( to those sensitive to subtle energy ) a tad draining and therefore tiring. Again. there are simple ways to remedy this to ensure that guests feel more rested on waking in the morning.
The bathroom was wonderful, with acres of light marble and generously lit mirrors. The Japonese-style toilet with its automatic features was a great toy, and with its inbuilt night-light was a real star turn. The showers controls needed a little working out but eventually we decoded them. The fixed glass panel used as a shower curtain for the bath stopped about a foot too short to be truly effective as a means of stopping water spilling onto the floor so not fulfilling its function completely.
On the whole, these minor issues apart, the hotel was somewhere I would certainly recommend to friends. The warmth of the welcome. the general helpfulness of the staff and the Buddha Bar restaurant added to our enjoyment of what was a brilliant weekend in Budapest
