Myself and two of my friends stayed in this hotel in November 2012 after reading recommendations on TA. We were not disappointed. The hotel is in a great location - about 5 mins walk from the Parliament building. We walked everywhere on the Pest side of the city which took no more than about 25-30 minutes.
The staff were what made our trip so good. They were always on hand for advice on places to go, good restaurants etc and made reservations for us and booked taxi's. Nothing was too much trouble and they were extremely knowledgeable. It was a surprise trip for my friend's birthday and they surprised her with a handwritten card and a bottle of chilled prosecco which was a lovely touch. We also organised a transfer from the airport which was competitively priced and made getting to the hotel so much easier.
We had two rooms on the same floor. Both were modern and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was gorgeous! Little toiletries are provided, and each room has a safe and there is free Wifi.
Breakfast was varied - continental cold meats & cheese as well as cooked bacon, eggs and grilled tomatoes. There was a range of bread and pastries, as well as cereal, yoghurt, fresh juice, tea and coffee. There was even prosecco if you wanted it! Alike many people who have written a review - the only downside was the space available. The tables were set up to seat two so it was often hard finding a space when there were three of us, and it did get very busy at certain times. I think at weekends they should think about extending the breakfast time slightly. One of the days we stayed they did have an additional room open which alleviated the problem but it was shut on the second day.
Budapest is a lovely city and I would certainly recommend staying at this hotel to any of my friend or family that visit in the future.
