We stayed four nights at the Jimi Hendrix (156 Euros, including breakfast) and enjoyed everything about it, including the quirky ultra-security of 3 locks for entry! It is important to realize that the staff does not live on site, but they worked hard to help us enjoy our stay in Budapest. "Ava" helped us to get settled and oriented to the city, and she provided a fine breakfast. "Ishtvan" (sp?) actually did our laundry for us and told my wife that her smile was sufficient payment! The owner, "Jurie" (sp?) was very helpful in directing us to good local restaurants. The guesthouse is located on a small, pleasant square with restaurants close by, and it is in a university area with cafes and nearby trams and subways that make it easy to reach anywhere in Budapest. Our room was clean and huge, with a comfortable bed, and we were very pleased by the quiet nights. The staff can sell tickets to the local baths (we visited the Szechenyi) and various shows, such as the folkdance show we attended at the Buda Vigado. We felt very lucky that we booked our stay at the Jimi Hendrix. My only caveat is that it would help to provide guests with a really good map online to make it easier to find the guesthouse when they first arrive. We traveled to Budapest by train and we wanted to avoid taxis at the train station, due to bad reports about them, but we found it confusing at first to use either the trams or the subway to go to the guesthouse. Once found, orientation was easy. We would be happy to stay there again.
