Stayed here for one night with my girlfriend. Location is ok. About a 10 to 15 minute walk from the city centre although in a pretty cool district itself. Pricing is decent and quite reasonable for Budapest. However reception staff were friendly but quite poor. On check in it took numerous attempts to take my card payment and then 3 attempts to get in our room. The room was ok but a little "brown" and quite small but very habitable. The Wi-Fi was terrible and not up to the standards of a modern day hotel. However this could have been as I was on the 4th floor as was better in reception. Breakfast was your average feed and common surroundings decent. As a sum up I would say you will not be horrified by this hotel but there are much better about.

Just back from a 4-night stay at Hotel Ambra, which I enjoyed very much. The hotel is clean and comfortable; the breakfast buffet is extensive; the reception staff are welcoming and very helpful. The hotel is in a good location, but your slumbers might be disturbed by local revellers, particularly at the weekend.

This centrally located hotel is on the Pest side and within easy walking distance to the Opera House, Andrassy Blvd., the Jewish Quarter, cute shops and good restaurants. Rooms are spacious and have a wall of glass affording light and an open feeling, even if you are overlooking the street. Breakfast was included and was very satisfactory serving cereals, fruits, eggs, pastries, juices and a make your own cappucino machine. Snacks and juice are available all day. The staff at the front desk appeared to be "in training" although they tried to be helpful. The main negative was that room service did not occur until very late in the day, often just when we were resting or getting ready to rest. We utilized their transportation from the train station; the driver was very accommodating even stopping along the way for an ATM.

Stayed in this hotel for three weeks. Quite adequate hotel for the price.

Location is convenient – at the walking distance from the very center of Pest. The main transportation hub – Deak Ferenc ter, where all three subway lines cross, is very close. The main drag - Andrassy ut with the Opera house is in the direct vicinity. The neigbourhood itself looks a bit abandoned and shabby, but it’s a historical Jewish quarter, so all three synagogues of the city, including the second biggest in the world Great Synagogue, are just few steps away.

Superior room on the second floor was spacious, even if simplistic, with a big fridge which is even equipped with a freezer. As the street is narrow and the building across is close, direct sunlight barely shined into the room, so it was never too hot inside. Avoid higher floors, though, as wi-fi is weak there.

Breakfast buffet is fairly reach, with everything you would expect from a four-star hotel – cold cuts, cheeses, fruits, flakes, different pastries, several sorts of juices etc, and always included some Hungarian specialties to try.

Any time during the day you have access to a coffee machine, tea making facilities and water with ice, which we used extensively during the hot days. There is no restaurant in the hotel, though.

Sauna is available for guests free of charge.

Service is friendly, we were especially impressed by booking manager Judith Kiss, who was indeed incredibly helpful.

During our stay we encounter one major problem – at some point wi-fi essentially stopped working in the entire hotel, and when we were leaving after a few days, it was still not fixed. Several days without wi-fi access strongly spoiled overall good impression of the hotel.
