We stayed at this hotel for four nights from 23rd June 2013. From the airport we took Bus 200E to the Metro Station at Kobanya Kispest on the M3 line. The metro quickly took us to Kalvin Ter station and on climbing the exit staircase the Mercure was facing us. This was the easiest of hotels to locate. Check in was swift and our room on the 3rd floor was clean and comfortable and had just enough space for two but was not very spacious. The bathroom was very small with a shower over the bathtub and a glass shower screen which had to be hinged out of the way to get in and out of the bath or shower. The usual toiletries were refreshed daily. Beds were firm and not too comfortable, but we did get used to them. Extra pillows were supplied on request. Our room was facing the side street and we enjoyed quiet nights. The in-room safe was so small that it could not take even a small laptop computer and was only used for safekeeping of passports and small electrical items and cameras. Free in-room Wi-Fi was haphazard and passwords changed several times during our stay. Breakfast was quite good, with a fair choice. There was no 'egg-station' but each day there were scrambled eggs and Hungarian omelette on offer. Tea and coffee were served by the staff and the service was good. We also tried the restaurant for dinner. Service, quality and price were all good and we can recommend you try the dinner cuisine. The hotel is clean and modern and superbly located for tourists. We bought 72 hour transport passes which were well used. Trams stop regularly only a few metres from the hotel for access to Deak Ferenc Ter where you can change for the metro and buses to all the sights. Bus 26 from this same square takes you across the river to Buda for the tourist sights. The Museum is just around the corner and the Danube is a few minutes walk away. There were plenty of restaurants and cheaper food outlets within minutes from the hotel. Although not the cheapest of hotels on offer the location made it worthwhile for our short stay.
