We would definitly go back to this hotel if we go back to Budapest, heres why:
Price - great value. We paid 75 pounds a night for 3 night bed and breakfast in what they called a superior room. The rooms were comfortable size, not massive, clean with a nice bed and bathroom.
location - great in our opinion. I should point out for people who like to be in the middle of the action that this is on the quieter, less touristy Buda side and the entrance is not the prettiest outlook, however we loved it because:
it had perfect uninterrupted views of the parliment building from accross the Danube.
it was less than 10 mins from the chain brideg and the magrit island bridge
it was less than 5 mins from an underground, tram, and hop-on-hop-off bus/ferry stops.
service was friendly and efficient
breakfast was ok, lots of choice, but not geared to the UK.
for a bonus it was close to a restaurant that we loved, and some nice architecture.
all in all, i'm sure there will be some better hotels but this was a great all-rounder choice for out budget.
We loved the Belgian brasserie Henri 5 mins down the road, nice food and belgian beers in a cool cellar setting.I would reccomend checking it out if you are close
We reccomend the hop-on hop-off red double decker service - there were audio commentory in lots of languages, and they covered all the parts of budapest so you can just stop on for the whole loop to get a great first view of the city. There is a stop just 2 mins outside the hotel, plus they are really good value compared to other cities.
The underground - GET YOUR TICKET STAMPED before you ride, its not immediately obvious for a first timer, but you may get stopped and fined on the spot if you dont!
