“Excellent Friendly Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

We were welcomed by a smiling receptionist which set the tone for our stay. Our suite was excellent, clean and spacious. Very helpful happy staff.
Near the Chain Bridge, ideal location for Sightseeing close to central Pest.

Stayed here on a recent break to Budapest, great location, good value for money. Rooms clean, comfortable and huge by our city hotel standards. Had continental breakfast option which was fine. Hotel is near the river, walking distance to main areas. Good restaurants, bars and coffee shops all nearby. Would definitely use this hotel again and would recommend.

Superb location and friendly service but rest rather average.
Rooms are suites with seperate bathroom sitting room and bedroom. Bed, shower, tvs and bedroom rather old style and small.
Hotel offers basic lobby with bar which do not feel cosy (but ok for a quick beer) i wouldnt want to sit there for anything else than to shortly wait for colleagues.
Breakfast was ok with lots of Hungarian salami. The juice tasted like sirop. There is a sauna and gym but i didnt try it. The hotel offers no proper meeting room.

This was a great place to stay, great value. Only downside (which is somewhat to do with the time of year) was that the rooms were unbearably hot. We stayed in mid-October and it was unseasonably warm; however, the hotel had just switched from their AC to Heating - somehow the AC didn't work, and only pumped out hot air. We tried opening the window, but it was too noisy in the evenings as there was a casino near by.

However, aside from that annoyance, everything else about the hotel was fabulous. rooms were huge, service was very helpful, and location couldn't have been better on the pest side. would stay here again as long as I knew i could use the AC or the heat...

We were recommended this hotel from a local. It is right next to the Four Seasons - right near the Chain Bridge and St. Stephens Basilica. The location itself was amazing. In such a nice part of town.

The hotel was a great find too. We travel on a budget and prior to arriving looked at the hotel but didn't book until we arrived. We walked in to see if they had rooms available. Our room was amazing! Bigger than our apartment! Full bath, full living room, bar/kitchenette area, and large bedroom. Lots of windows.

No amazing views but for the right price in the right part of town - a nice, clean hotel - it was perfect.

Room and hotel was great. They offer a light breakfast of coffee and bread for free - but they also offer an larger breakfast for a fee. We didn't partake in either but we saw many who did.

The sauna in the basement was nice and private. The gym is basic but at least they have one to offer. Also, we were given free wi-fi but they post a lot about paying for it. Hopefully, it is a sign they are changing their policy on wi-fi - free is always best.

Hands down would recommend this hotel to pretty much anyone and definitely would be back.

Not to mention the ladies who were working the front desk that weekend were so nice and helpful.

So, only best recommendations about this hotel. Modern, superb maintained, clean and convenient. Rooms well designed, microwave, two(!!) tv, safe and etc. One of the best staff that I have ever seen. Smile and helpful.
Placed in five minutes of lazy walk from Dunai riverside and in 2 minutes from Basilica. All things are great.
If I'll have a plan to visit Budapest again, then this is the place where I'll stay.
Thanks to hotel staff :)
