“Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Great location near Opera metro but easy walking distance to Deak metro if you are going to the airport or main line stations. Don't panic as you approach as it might look abit dodgy on first sight as there is quite a lot of graffiti around which is deceptive. Very helpful reception staff with perfect English. Great breakfast and free coffee available all day in the reception which was very convenient. You can have coffee in the room if you wish as there was a kettle provided. Good bars and cafes on the same street - cheaper than the main drag nearer St Stephen's Church. The Spa shop across the road is very handy and there is a bakery across the road with slices of pizza and stuff if you need a snack late at night. Good air con as it was 37C outside.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor, internal room - very quiet and handy to nip down for a coffee.

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.
