We stayed here with our tour group for several nights. Be warned that the rooms are very small--smaller than those we stayed in when we visited Poland, for instance--but modern and clean. We had a bit of difficulty with a window that wouldn't open (it was locked with no special "key" with which to unlock it), so we had to call the front desk. To the staff's credit, someone came up immediately.
The problem with the property is the elevator system. One of the elevators was out of order, and since it is somewhat cumbersome to go from Building A to Building B (one has to take two elevators), there are often lines to go downstairs during breakfast or checkout time. Further, there is a prominent sign at the elevator indicating that in the case of fire, one should not use the elevator; however, the staircase is locked! (We had tried to circumvent the delays in the elevator by finding the stairway. We found it, but couldn't use it.)
The breakfast is good, with a good deal of selection and friendly and attentive people. (We'd augment the strength of the coffee by adding a shot of espresso at the coffee machine, which helped a great deal!)
The staff members are overall very helpful and friendly, and they are happily willing to use their English for those of us who are Hungarian-challenged. As we hadn't chosen this hotel (again, it was part of the tour), most of us did, overall, find it to be more than acceptable.
