We stayed at Le Meridien for two nights before embarking on a Danube River cruise. It was one of the finest central city hotel stays that I can remember and I have been traveling for many years.
We were given a room on a lower floor, but at the back of the hotel overlooking Budapest's pedestrian mall which proved to be very quiet. The room was average in size by big city hotel standards, but was well designed and nicely furnished. There was a refrigerator in the room (watch out; there are sensors under the cans and bottles and if you move one it's registered as a purchase whether you consumed the contents or just moved it in order to shove in a can of coke).and lots of shelves and electrical outlets. The shower was excellent, the towels were thick and fluffy, and the bed was very comfortable.
We ate in the bar twice and the food was quite good (but simple; it was bar food). There was a full range of whiskeys, beer, and some very good wine. There was lobby music in the evenings a. We had breakfast one morning in the hotel restaurant and the food was quite good. Like most places in eastern Europe, the coffee was excellent.
The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. English was widely spoken. The hotel is located in a very convenient part of Budapest and within half a block of a subway stop. There is a small, urban market across the street to the right of the hotel (some staff speak English) and there are quite a few restaurants within walking distance. The pedestrian mall offers local Hungarian shopping as well as a lot of the international chains.
