It is always a good sign if a hotel has their own website and Hotel Sissi website was quite informative. We stayed here for four nights. It was a little hard to find and perhaps is over half an hours walk into centre of town. Its a nice walk though, admiring all the various six storey buildings, assorted museums and synagogues on the way. The staff were generally friendly but one could misinterpret their ‘off-hand’ manner as rudeness ; we invariably found this a trait of the people in these eastern-bloc countries - poor broken English.
Back to the hotel - we were pleased that free wifi was easily accessible both in the rooms and lobby. A desktop computer is provided in the lobby. You will find the internet useful because of the sixty channels provided on the TV, none are English speaking!
Breakfast was typically continental and I am pleased that a toaster has been introduced to breakfast rooms outside the UK. You may have to eat your cereal with a teaspoon though, again a trait of these countries. There were some issues however, the shower was a bit ropey with as much water dripping from the top of the shower head than from the spray below. A request to change our room to one which had a bath/tub was honoured and our problems were over. We found the rooms were poorly lit but generally the room - and indeed the hotel - were spotless. I wouldn’t be in a rush back to Hungary but if I were to return, I would give this hotel favourable consideration.
