Great location, 5 minute walk from Deak Ferenc Ter (main metro station) and 10-15 minute walk to the river. Easy access to most places from this hotel, which is very handy, we never once got a taxi.
Breakfast was adequate, bread, fruit, eggs, salami, the usual european breakfast. It is self service so no waiting staff.
Rooms - Simple and clean. We had a triple room as 3 girls sharing, and so had an extra camp bed which was great as it was put into a suite, so we had lots of space.
Only complaint I have re. the room - it was very hot, no air conditioning. There was building going on outside so we couldn't open the windows either.
Gym/sauna - didn't use so can't comment
Food - there is a great cafe next door to the hotel. I would recommend, lovely staff and amazing food at great prices. Really quirky place with great decor.
If you head out of the hotel and go right, you will end up in a very lively area in the backstreets. There are some amazing restaurants and bars here, we had a great time.
Note for MANAGEMENT - One of the reception staff was extremely rude (Name badge said Renata?) . Upon checkout we walked up to the desk, she stared at us and said, room? Then proceeded to tell us we had to pay tourist tax with no explanation, no did we have a nice stay etc etc. Absolutely no interpersonal skills nor public relation skills, was extremely rude and made us feel unwelcome.
Later we went back to collect our luggage as we went out for lunch, she was sat swinging on the reception chair playing on her mobile! Not impressed...
Asides from that, hotel is more than adequate for a city break, cheap room rates. Its not a luxury hotel by any standard, but even by my fussy standards it was very clean, organised and great location! I would return again (if Renata improves her reception skills! ;-) )
