My husband and I spent a week at the Hotel Budapest in Budapest Hungary in April 2013. We chose it because it was within our budget and was an interesting looking building. It is a circular shape and is one of the tallest hotels in the city. We requested a high floor and was put in a room facing back towards the Danube and the wonderful city views on the 13th Floor.
This was not the Sheraton or the Marriott for sure and it was a good walk to town from our hotel on the buda side. We love walking so it wasnt a problem but if you want to be close to all the sights you can stay down town on the pest side or take the frequent metro bus and trains that are very regular. The room was functional with the usual ONE english speaking channel tv station BBC news room service stopped right on 10pm which was a bummer the night we arrived we were late getting in and had to survivie on a bag of crisps my husband got at a gas station down the street.
The insulation in the place is not good to say the least and we had to listen to a number of guests banging doors at all hours of the night and footfall in the corridors were noisy also.
I would say the staff were extremely polite and helpful food was edible but if you want a four star experience dont stay here its a tourist level hotel that attracts all the school tours from Italy Spain and the USA and the two lifts are like downtown New York Subway in the mornings and late evenings and being on the 13th Floor they were a nuisance and very rude children - our next visit to Hungary will be in about a month and I intend to stay in the pest side for convenience and ease of access to the mirade of beautiful buildings and streets in Budapest.
